We cannot be sure about the truth of the statement given in the first question. It is can be predicted that it is true that he is the pilot of a spaceship since the letter mention the intention of the sender of the letter that someday he or she wants to be a spaceship pilot.

In the case of Doi Takao went out the spaceship doesn’t even mentioned in the passage. So, the answer is false.  We just give and fill the bracket which is associated with the question with the X sign mark.

Meaning              :

The person who sent the email is researching about the space。

The answer for this question is also false. We can summarize it in the second paragraph of the passage.  The sender of the letter is not researching about space, this person just have an interest to be a spaceship pilot one day, so he or she asks for an advice about what kind of thing that the person should study in order to be a spaceship pilot.
