I. Read the passage and circle the best option A, B, C, or D to complete the following questions or statements:

Psychologist have debated a long time about whether a child’s upbringing can give it the ability to do outstandingly well. Some think that it is impossible to develop genius and say that it is simply something a person is born with. Others, however, argue that the potential for great achievement can be develop. The truth lies somewhere between these two extremes.

It seems very obvious that being born with the right qualities from gifted parents will increase a child’s ability to do well. However, this ability will be fully realized only with the right upbringing and opportunities. As one psychologist says, “To have a fast car, you need both a good engine an d fuel.” Scientists have recently assessed intelligence, achievement, and ability in 50 sets of identical twins that were separated shortly birth and brought up by different parents. They found that achievement was based on intelligence, and later influenced by the child’s environment.

One case involving very intelligent twins was quoted. One of the twins received a normal upbringing, and performed well. The other twin, however, was brought up by extremely supportive parents and given every possible opportunity to develop its abilities. That twin, though starting out with the same degree of intelligence as the other, performed even better.

This case reflects the general principle of intelligence and ability. The more favorable the environment, the more a child’s intelligence and ability are developed. However, there is no link between intelligence and socioeconomic level of a child’s family. In other words, it does not matter how poor or how rich a family is, as this does not affect the intelligence.

Gifted people can not be created by supportive parents, but they can be developed by them. One professor of music said that outstanding musicians usually started two or three years earlier than ordinary performers, often because their parents had recognized their ability. These musicians then needed at least ten years’ hard work and training in order to reach the level they were capable of attaining. People who want to have very gifted children are given the following advice:

  • Marry an intelligent person.
  • Allow children to follow their own interests rather than the interests of the parents.
  • Start a child’s education early but avoid pushing the child too hard.
  • Encourage children to play; for example, playing with musical instrument is essential for a child who wants to become an outstanding musician.

1: When scientists studied intelligence and ability in twins, they found that ______.

  • How were great musicians different from ordinary musicians in their development?
    1. They practice playing their instruments for many years
    2. They were exceptionally intelligent and artistic

Read the passage and circle the best option A, B, C, or D to complete the following questions or statements:


Since the world became industrialized, the number of animal species that have either become extinct or have neared extinction has increased. Bengal tigers, for instance, which once roamed the jungles in vast numbers, now number only about 2,300. By the year 2025, it is estimated that they will become extinct.


What is alarming about the case of the Bengal tiger is that this extinction will have been caused almost entirely by poachers who, according to some sources, are not always interested in material gain but in personal gratification. This is an example of the callousness that is contributing to the problem of extinction. Animals such as the Bengal tiger, as well as other endangered species, are valuable parts of the world’s ecosystem. International laws protecting these animals must be enacted to ensure their survival – and the survival of our planet.


Countries around the world have begun to deal with the problem in various ways. Some countries, in an effort to circumvent the problem, have allocated large amounts of land to animals reserves. They then charge admission prices to help defray the costs of maintaining the parks, and they often must also depend on world organizations for support. This money enables them to invest in equipment and patrols to protect the animals. Another response to the increase in animal extinction is an international boycott of products made from endangered species. This has had some effect, but by itself it will not prevent animals from being hunted and killed.

  2. A statement and an illustration D. Specific and general information


  • What does the word “this” refer to in the passage?
  1. Bengal tiger B. Interest in material gain
  2. Killing animals for personal satisfaction D. The decrease in the Bengal tiger population

Read the following passage and choose the right answer to fill in each of the blanks.

Keeping fit and staying healthy have, not surprisingly, become a growth industry (41)
apart from the amount of money spent each year on doctors’ (42) and approved medical  treatment,  huge
sums are now spent on health foods and (43) of various kinds, from vitamin pills to mineral water, (44)
health clubs and keep- fit books and videos. We are more concerned than ever, it seeems, (45)
the water we drink and the air we breathe, and are smoking less, though not yet drinking less alcohol. This
does not appear to mean that (46) and sneezes have been banished, or that we can all expect to live
to a hundred. To give a personal example, one of my friends, who is a keep- fit (47) ,  a  non-  smoker
and teetotaler, and who is very (48) about what he eats, is at present languishing in bed with a wrist in
(49) and a badly sprained ankle. Part of his healthy (50) is to play squash every day after
work, and that (51) for the ankle. He also cycles everywhere, and if you have ever tried to cycle
through the rush-hour traffic with a sprained ankle, you will understand (52) he  acquired  the  broken
wrist. For (53) , it seems, is not just a matter of a good (54) and plenty of exercise. Too much

exercise can be harmful, as many joggers have discovered. Eating the right food can easily become an obsession, as

can overworking, which you might have to do so as to be able to afford your (55) of the squash club, your
mountain bike, your health food, and a few holidays in peaceful and healthy places.

Read the following passage and choose the right answer to each of the questions.

Are  organically grown  foods  the  best food  choices?  The  advantages  claimed  for  such  foods  over

conventionally grown and marketed food products are now being debated. Advocates of organic foods– a term whose meaning varies greatly- frequently proclaim that such products are safer and more nutritious than others.

The growing interest of consumers in the safety and nutritional quality of the typical North American diet is a welcome development. However, much of this interest has been sparked by sweeping claims that the foods supply is unsafe or inadequate in the meeting nutritional needs. Although most of these claims are not supported by scientific evidence, the preponderance of written material advancing such claims makes it difficult for the general public to separate fact from fiction. As a result, claims that eating a diet consisting entirely of organically grown foods prevents or cures disease or provides other benefits to health have become widely publicized and formed the basic for folklore.

Almost daily the public is besieged by claims for “no-aging” diets, new vitamins, and other wonder fo ods. Thre are numerous unsubstantiated reports that natural vitamins are superior to synthetic ones, that fertilized eggs are nutritionally superior to unfertilized eggs, that untreated grains are better than fumigated grains, and the like.

One thing that most organically grown foods products seem to have in common is that they cost more than conventionally grown foods. But in many cases consumers are misled if they believe foods. So there is real cause for concern if consumers, particularly those with limited incomes, distrust the regular food supply and buy expensive organic foods instead.

  1. The “ welcome development” mentioned in paragraph 2 is an increase in .
  2. interest in food safety and nutrition among North Americans.
  3. the nutritional quality of the typical North American diet.
  4. the amount of healthy foods grown in North America.
  5. the number of consumers in North America.

For a long time, amphibians were confused with reptiles. Like reptiles, they have three-chambered hearts and are cold-blooded. Some amphibians, such as salamanders, are even shaped like lizards. However, unlike reptiles, amphibians never have claws on their toes or scales on their bodies. Furthermore, the eggs of amphibians lack shells, so they must be laid in water or in moist places.

Amphibians were the first creatures to spend sizable amounts of their lives on land. The larvae of most amphibians, such as frog tadpoles, are born with gills and live in water. However, their gills disappear as they develop lungs. Most retain the ability to breathe through the moist surface of their skin. This comes in handy when they hibernate in the bottom mud of lakes and ponds during the coldest months. They take in the small amount of oxygen they need through their skin. Some amphibians undergo what is known as a “double metamorphosis”, changing not only from gill breathers to lung breathers but also from vegetarians to insectivores.

Although the amphibian class is rather small in number of species, it shows great diversity. There are three major types. The caecilians of the tropics are long, legless, burrowing creatures. Caudate amphibians, such as newts and salamanders, mostly have long tails and stubby legs. Salientians, which include both frogs and toads, are tailless as adults and have powerful hind legs. Toads differ from frogs primarily in that they have dry, warty skin.

  1. contrast different types of amphibians B. define and describe amphibians C. trace the development of amphibians from larvae to adults D. explain how amphibians differ

from other creatures

Câu 33:  The term “scales” is closest to which of the following in meaning?

  1. Plates covering the bodies of certain animals. B. Proportions between different sets of dimensions.
  2. Devices used to measure weight. D. Sounds made by various animals.

Câu 34: According to the passage, the term “double metamorphosis” refers to the fact that amphibians _____.

  1. change both the shape of their bodies and the way in which they lay eggs B. change both their methods of breathing and their feeding habits
  2. first breathe through their gills, then through their lungs, then through their skin D. first live in the water, then on land, then in mud in the bottom of ponds and lakes

i câu, t 69 ñn 80

Galaxies are not evenly distributed throughout the universe. A few are found alone, but almost all are grouped in formations termed galactic clusters. These formations should not be confused with stellar clusters, globular clusters of stars that exist within a galaxy. The size of galactic clusters varies enormously, with some clusters containing only a dozen or so members and others containing as many as 10,000. Moreover, galactic clusters themselves are part of larger clusters of clusters, termed superclusters. It is surmised that even clusters of superclusters are possible.

Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is part of a galactic cluster called the Local Group, which has twenty members and is typical in terms of the types of galaxies it contains. There are three large spiral galaxies: Andromeda, the largest galaxy in the group; the Milky Way, the second-largest galaxy; and the Trianglum Spiral, the third largest. There are also four medium-sized spiral galaxies, including the Large Cloud of Magellan and the Small Cloud of Magellan. There are four regular elliptical galaxies; the remainders are dwarf ellipticals. Other than our own galaxy, only Andromeda and the Clouds of Magellan can be seen with the naked eye, and the Clouds are visible only from the Southern Hemisphere.

In the vicinity of the Local Group are several clusters, each containing around twelve members. The nearest cluster rich in members is the Virgo Cluster, which contains thousands of galaxies of all types. Like most large clusters, it emits X-rays. The Local Group, the small neighboring clusters, and the Virgo Cluster form part of a much larger cluster of clusters – the Local Supercluster.

The existence of galactic clusters presented a riddle to scientists for many years – the “missing mass” problem. Clusters are presumably held together by the gravity generated by their members. However, measurements showed that the galaxies did not have enough mass to explain their apparent stability. Why didn’t these clusters disintegrate? It is now thought that galaxies contain great amounts of “ dark matter”, which cannot be directly observed but which generates gravitational pull.

This matter includes gas, dust, burnt-out stars, and even black holes.

Câu 69:  Which of the followings does the passage mainly discuss?

  1. An astronomical problem that has never been solved. B. A recent development in astronomy.
  1. Clusters and superclusters of galaxies. D. The incredible distance between galaxies.

Câu 70:  The word “evenly” is closest in meaning to _____.

  1. predictably B. paradoxically C. uniformly                      D. relatively

Câu 71:  What conclusion can be made about galaxies that are NOT found in clusters?

  1. They are outnumbered by galaxies that do occur in clusters. B. They are not actually galaxies but

parts of galaxies.

  1. They have never been observed. D. They are larger than other galaxies.

Câu 72:  The word globular” is closest in meaning to _____.

  1. immense B. spherical C. dense                               D. brilliant

Câu 73:  The author would probably characterize the existence of clusters of superclusters as _____.

  1. certain B. surprising C. theoretical                     D. impossible

Câu 74:  According to the passage, in what way is the Local Group typical of galactic clusters?

  1. In its size. B. In its shape.


  1. In the number of galaxies it contains. D. In the types of galaxies that make it up.

Câu 75: In the Local Group, which of the following types of galaxies are most numerous?

  1. Dwarf ellipticals. B. Large spirals.
  1. Regular ellipticals. D. Medium-sized spirals.

Câu 76: All of the following are visible from somewhere on Earth without a telescope EXCEPT _____.

  1. Andromeda B. the Clouds of Magellan
  1. the Milky Way D. the Triangulum Spiral

Câu 77: According to the passage, the Local Group and the Virgo Cluster have which of the following in common?


  1. Both are part of the same supercluster.
  1. Both emit X-rays.
  1. Both are small clusters.
  1. Both are rich in galaxies.

Câu 78: The word riddle” is closest in meaning to _____.

Câu 79: Which of the following is NOT true about the dark matter”?

  1. It may include black holes. B. It is impossible to observe directly.
  1. It is found in the space between galaxies. D. It helps explain the “missing mass” problem.

Question 86-90

Language, the way we express ourselves, is a vital part of learning. A baby learns his native tongue naturally by hearing speech around him. If the speech he hears is rapid, not clear and never directed at him then he learns slowly and speaks badly. A child of two or three who can’t make his desires known or put his thoughts into words will usually become angry. His relationships with other get worse. If the speech a baby hears around him is clear, and his family talk to him, he will gain a satisfactory command of language directly, by his mother, his language ability will be greater. By the time he is two, it is quite possible for him to have a vocabulary of two thousand words and by the time he is three he will be able to read. Once ahead he will stay ahead.

The Japanese have perhaps the strictest rules of social and business behaviour. Seniority is very important, and a younger man should never be sent to complete a business deal with an older Japanese man. It is also important to exchange business cards immediately on meeting because it is essential to establish everyone’s position. when it is handed to a person in a superior position, it must be given and received with both hands, and you must take time to read it carefully, and not just put it in your pocket. You should not expect the Japanese to shake hands. Bowing the head is a mark of respect, and the first bow of the day should be lower than when you meet thereafter.
