Mrs. Grant stood up and absent-minded picked up the umbrella that was hanging on the seat in front of her. A cold voice said loudly: “That is mine, Madam!” Suddenly remembered that she had come out without her umbrella, Mrs. Grant blushed with embarrassment and apologised, trying at the same time to ignore a unpleasant look the owner of the umbrella was giving her. When she got off the bus, Mrs. Grant made a straight for a shop which she could buy an umbrella. She found a very pretty one and, because it was so pretty, decided to buy other as a present for her daughter. She did the rest of her shopping and had lunch in a café . In the afternoon she got on the homeward bus with the two umbrellas under her arm, and sat down. Then she saw that, with a curious coincidence, she was sitting next to the woman who had made her feeling so uncomfortable that morning. This woman now looked at her, then at the umbrellas, and said: “ You have had quite a good day, I see”. Năm học 2008 - 2009

I mean, look at those two young people over there. They can hardly keep their hands off each other. They shouldn't kiss and cuddle like that in public. It's embarrassing for other people." "Noise. That's what I don't like about things today. Everyone seems to think they can make as much noise as they like without a thought for other people. When you get on a train, some idiot's probably shouting into a mobile phone or you find yourself sitting next to someone with a personal stereo that's turned up too loud. And have you tried having a quiet day in the garden lately? Quiet? You can hardly hear yourself think with all the lawnmowers, hedge trimmers, and what have you." B. "I don't think it's true. Things are different nowadays, but I wouldn't say they're worse. Life has become much faster and people don't have time for the more formal manners that the Victorians had. I know people eat in the street, but I wouldn't say there's anything wrong with that. It's just easier and faster like that." C. "Life is certainly more informal these days, I'll give you that, but I wouldn't say that's a bad thing. When I first started work I had to wear a suit and a tie, but these days we all wear casual clothes. And everybody was called Mr. This and Mrs. That, but today it's all first names. In our office everyone even calls the Managing Director "Bob". That was unthinkable when I was younger, but I think it's better now. It's friendlier – more relaxed." D. "I think people today have good manners. Things aren't as bad as some people like to make out. Most people still queue up for things properly and drivers usually stop for pedestrians at zebra crossings, Năm học 2008 - 2009
  6. Trường Trung Học Chuyên Trà Vinh -6- Đề thi đề nghị môn Anh Văn because I think most people realize that life's nicer that way. I must admit that people are generally more impatient and less considerate on the roads, but on the whole I think things are all right." E. Things have certainly changed, but it isn't bad manners. It's all down to equality. Why should I give up my seat so that a woman can sit down? If women want equality in jobs and things like that, they can't expect special treatment for other things, can they? I think equality cuts both ways. F. People today are less polite than they used to be. This is the view of Dr Andrew St. George of Oxford University, who has just completed a book on modern social behavior. As the title, The Descent of Manners suggests, he believes that manners have deteriorated since Victorian times. For example, people these days eat while they are walking down the street. They kiss and embrace in public. They push on to buses and trains. Men don't open doors for women their seat on a crowded train. The Victorians, Dr St George says, would be horrified at modern behavior. We went out on to the streets to find out what people think about his ideas .Here are some opinions that we heard. C. Read and choose the best answer : Political science, the rational analysis of systems of government, their organization, functions, and policies, first originated In the Western world with Niccolo Machiavelli, a citizen of the Italian city state of Florence in the late 15" century. At the time the only school of political thought was that of the Church, which was highly idealistic and more concerned with theological musings and preserving the tenets of the faith than in the practical operation of government. Machiavelli rejected this approach arguing that stability and order were more important than moral considerations. It was therefore justifiable for a ruler to use any means necessary to gain and maintain the power necessary to establish order. According to Machiavelli, rulers should not be constrained by traditional notions of morality and virtue. This gave rise to the famous quote "The ends justify the means." It is doubtful that Machiavelli ever actually uttered these words, but they sum up his views accurately. In his greatest work, The Prince, Machiavelli outlines the methods which a ruler should employ to gain and maintain power by identifying the qualities an effective ruler must possess. First a ruler must be willing to learn from and imitate the great rulers of the past. When Machiavelli spoke of the great rulers of the past, he mostly meant the great Roman emperors, whom he admired for their cunning and often ruthless application of power. Second a ruler must be able to justify his rule to the public. Machiavelli claimed that no ruler could achieve power and maintain stability unless the public saw that they were better off with him than without him. A ruler also had to be a devoted student of the art of war. Machiavelli saw warfare as an essential element of statecraft, and believed that the ruler who had no skill in war was doomed. Machiavelli also claimed that a ruler must be willing to cast away thoughts of morality and do whatever necessary to hold on to power, including resorting to murder, corruption, and torture. Finally, Machiavelli claimed that a ruler must never be hated. This may seem hard to square with his advice regarding murder and torture, but what Machiavelli meant was that even though a ruler must sometimes engage in ruthless behavior, he must also maintain an outward facade of virtue. Machiavelli's views have always been controversial. The Church immediately repudiated him and placed The Prince on its list of banned books. Despite this, knowledge of his works spread throughout Europe and sparked a heated debate that spawned the study we now know as political science. [A] Jean Bodin a French political theorist around 50 years after Machiavelli, supported his views. [B] Bodin’s ideas heavily influenced by Machiavelli led to the theory of the divine right of kings and is subsequent use to justify the rule of absolute monarchs in the 17th century, and were taken up by later political thinkers as well. [C] In various forms, this theory has been used to justify various forms of authoritarianism, from the dictatorship of Napoleon to the fascist governments of Italy and Germany during World War II. [D] Giovanni Botero, however, strongly opposed Machiavelli's ideas. He argued that the system of government Machiavelli proposed simply did not work. In its place he suggested that a ruler should behave more as if he had a contract with his subjects. According to Botero, the power of a ruler rested Năm học 2008 - 2009
  7. Trường Trung Học Chuyên Trà Vinh -7- Đề thi đề nghị môn Anh Văn on the consent of the people and he should therefore rule justly. Botero's refutation of Machiavelli's ideas greatly influenced later liberal political theorists such as John Locke and Adam Smith. Their ideas in turn gave rise to the idea of the "power of the people," which has inspired any number of revolutions, from the American Revolution to the communist revolutions of the 20'" century. Thus, Machiavelli's ideas helped to spark a debate that has colored nearly every political theory since his time, the debate over whether power truly rests with the ruler or the people. 1.

Then correct it: The sun was shining quite brightly as Mrs. Grant left her house, and she saw no necessity to take an umbrella with her. She got on the bus to take herself into the town and before long it came on to rain. It had not stopped when the bus reached at the market-place half an hour later. Mrs. Grant stood up and absent-minded picked up the umbrella that was hanging on the seat in front of her. A cold voice said loudly: “That is mine, Madam!” Suddenly remembered that she had come out without her umbrella, Mrs. Grant blushed with embarrassment and apologised, trying at the same time to ignore a unpleasant look the owner of the umbrella was giving her. When she got off the bus, Mrs. Grant made a straight for a shop which she could buy an umbrella. She found a very pretty one and, because it was so pretty, decided to buy other as a present for her daughter. She did the rest of her shopping and had lunch in a café . In the afternoon she got on the homeward bus with the two umbrellas under her arm, and sat down. Then she saw that, with a curious coincidence, she was sitting next to the woman who had made her feeling so uncomfortable that morning. This woman now looked at her, then at the umbrellas, and said: “ You have had quite a good day, I see”. Năm học 2008 - 2009

I mean, look at those two young people over there. They can hardly keep their hands off each other. They shouldn't kiss and cuddle like that in public. It's embarrassing for other people." "Noise. That's what I don't like about things today. Everyone seems to think they can make as much noise as they like without a thought for other people. When you get on a train, some idiot's probably shouting into a mobile phone or you find yourself sitting next to someone with a personal stereo that's turned up too loud. And have you tried having a quiet day in the garden lately? Quiet? You can hardly hear yourself think with all the lawnmowers, hedge trimmers, and what have you." B. "I don't think it's true. Things are different nowadays, but I wouldn't say they're worse. Life has become much faster and people don't have time for the more formal manners that the Victorians had. I know people eat in the street, but I wouldn't say there's anything wrong with that. It's just easier and faster like that." C. "Life is certainly more informal these days, I'll give you that, but I wouldn't say that's a bad thing. When I first started work I had to wear a suit and a tie, but these days we all wear casual clothes. And everybody was called Mr. This and Mrs. That, but today it's all first names. In our office everyone even calls the Managing Director "Bob". That was unthinkable when I was younger, but I think it's better now. It's friendlier – more relaxed." D. "I think people today have good manners. Things aren't as bad as some people like to make out.

I must admit that people are generally more impatient and less considerate on the roads, but on the whole I think things are all right." E. Things have certainly changed, but it isn't bad manners. It's all down to equality. Why should I give up my seat so that a woman can sit down? If women want equality in jobs and things like that, they can't expect special treatment for other things, can they? I think equality cuts both ways. F. People today are less polite than they used to be. This is the view of Dr Andrew St. George of Oxford University, who has just completed a book on modern social behavior. As the title, The Descent of Manners suggests, he believes that manners have deteriorated since Victorian times. For example, people these days eat while they are walking down the street. They kiss and embrace in public. They push on to buses and trains. Men don't open doors for women their seat on a crowded train. The Victorians, Dr St George says, would be horrified at modern behavior. We went out on to the streets to find out what people think about his ideas .Here are some opinions that we heard. C. Read and choose the best answer : Political science, the rational analysis of systems of government, their organization, functions, and policies, first originated In the Western world with Niccolo Machiavelli, a citizen of the Italian city state of Florence in the late 15" century. At the time the only school of political thought was that of the Church, which was highly idealistic and more concerned with theological musings and preserving the tenets of the faith than in the practical operation of government. Machiavelli rejected this approach arguing that stability and order were more important than moral considerations. It was therefore justifiable for a ruler to use any means necessary to gain and maintain the power necessary to establish order. According to Machiavelli, rulers should not be constrained by traditional notions of morality and virtue. This gave rise to the famous quote "The ends justify the means." It is doubtful that Machiavelli ever actually uttered these words, but they sum up his views accurately. In his greatest work, The Prince, Machiavelli outlines the methods which a ruler should employ to gain and maintain power by identifying the qualities an effective ruler must possess. First a ruler must be willing to learn from and imitate the great rulers of the past. When Machiavelli spoke of the great rulers of the past, he mostly meant the great Roman emperors, whom he admired for their cunning and often ruthless application of power. Second a ruler must be able to justify his rule to the public. Machiavelli claimed that no ruler could achieve power and maintain stability unless the public saw that they were better off with him than without him. A ruler also had to be a devoted student of the art of war. Machiavelli saw warfare as an essential element of statecraft, and believed that the ruler who had no skill in war was doomed. Machiavelli also claimed that a ruler must be willing to cast away thoughts of morality and do whatever necessary to hold on to power, including resorting to murder, corruption, and torture. Finally, Machiavelli claimed that a ruler must never be hated. This may seem hard to square with his advice regarding murder and torture, but what Machiavelli meant was that even though a ruler must sometimes engage in ruthless behavior, he must also maintain an outward facade of virtue. Machiavelli's views have always been controversial. The Church immediately repudiated him and placed The Prince on its list of banned books. Despite this, knowledge of his works spread throughout Europe and sparked a heated debate that spawned the study we now know as political science. [A] Jean Bodin a French political theorist around 50 years after Machiavelli, supported his views. [B] Bodin’s ideas heavily influenced by Machiavelli led to the theory of the divine right of kings and is subsequent use to justify the rule of absolute monarchs in the 17th century, and were taken up by later political thinkers as well. [C] In various forms, this theory has been used to justify various forms of authoritarianism, from the dictatorship of Napoleon to the fascist governments of Italy and Germany during World War II. [D] Giovanni Botero, however, strongly opposed Machiavelli's ideas. He argued that the system of government Machiavelli proposed simply did not work. In its place he suggested that a ruler should behave more as if he had a contract with his subjects. According to Botero, the power of a ruler rested Năm học 2008 - 2009
  17. Trường Trung Học Chuyên Trà Vinh -7- Đề thi đề nghị môn Anh Văn on the consent of the people and he should therefore rule justly. Botero's refutation of Machiavelli's ideas greatly influenced later liberal political theorists such as John Locke and Adam Smith. Their ideas in turn gave rise to the idea of the "power of the people," which has inspired any number of revolutions, from the American Revolution to the communist revolutions of the 20'" century. Thus, Machiavelli's ideas helped to spark a debate that has colored nearly every political theory since his time, the debate over whether power truly rests with the ruler or the people. 1.
