For laborers, it means that greater skills are required and, in the last analysis, that the work may prove more difficult than in the past, where the time element has less importance. The positive benefits, however, outweigh these considerations. The laborer today has greater leisure, is less provincial, and enjoys the fruits of his labors to a far greater degree than hitherto possible. In a way we may say that we have reached the end of the Industrial Revolution. We may call today a technological revolution, in that science has found ways to utilize the efforts of a man beyond the dreams of yesteryear. The dawn of the Atomic age presages further benefits for all of us. Some have called the dawning age the Power-Metal Age. The term is significant, for in these two elements our country is rich and, if not self sufficient, at least we have shown ourselves alert in exploiting these two elements to a degree hitherto unseen in the world. 1) The author implies that the laborers of tomorrow will __________. A. enjoy greater benefits B. have fewer opportunities for employment C. grow more provincial D. be destroyed by automation 2) When the author states that ‘work may prove more difficult than in the past’, he implies that ___________. A. back-breaking physical labor is going to return B. running the machines of the future will be an exacting task C. wartime conditions will make work difficult D. the laborer is going to have to spend more time on the job 3) The author’s chief purpose in writing this passage seems to be to ___________. A. defend the work of scientists B. explain why modern man has considerable leisure time C. describe certain manifestations in industrialism D. explain why the Industrial Revolution came to an end 4) The author indicates that an appropriate name for the world of tomorrow will be the ___________. A. Technological Revolution B. New Industrial Revolution C. Power Metal Age D. Age of the Dreams of Yesteryear 5) The author implies that the future strength of his country will be found in its ____________. A. vast number of laborers B. skilled technicians C. plentiful sources of power and metal D. more effective use of leisure time II/ Read the following passage and answer the questions below: Nguyễn Đức Hưng* - Marie Curie Private High School
  2. Tài liệu luyện thi Đại học * Môn Tiếng Anh (Test 1) Page 2 Since the world has become industrialized, there has been an increase in the number of animal species that have either become extinct or have neared extinction. Bengal tigers, for instance, which once roamed the jungles in vast numbers, now number only about 2,300, and by the year 2025 their population is estimated to be down to zero. 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 interested in material gain but in personal gratification. This is an example of the callousness that is part of what is causing the problem of extinction. Animals like the Bengal tiger, as well as other endangered species, are a valuable part 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 order to circumvent the problem, have allocated large amounts of land to animal reserves. They then charge admission to help defray the costs of maintaining the parks, and they often must also depend on world organizations for support. With the money they get, they can invest in equipment and patrols to protect the animals. Another solution that is an attempt to stem the tide of animal extinction is an international boycott of products made from endangered species. This seems fairly effective, but it will not, by itself, prevent animals from being hunted and killed. 1) What is the main topic of the passage? A. the Bengal tiger B. international boycotts C. endangered species D. problems with industrialization 2) Which of the following is closest in meaning to the word "alarming" in line 4?

Humanity's unfounded fear and hatred of these ancient creatures is leading to a worldwide slaughter that may result in the extinction of many coastal shark species. The shark is the victim of a warped attitude of wildlife protection; we strive only to protect the beautiful, non- threatening parts of our environment. And, in our efforts to restore only non-threatening parts of our earth, we ignore other important parts. A perfect illustration of this attitude is the contrasting attitude toward another large sea animal, the dolphin. During the 1980s, environmentalists in the United States protested the use of driftnets for tuna fishing in the Pacific Ocean since these nets also caught dolphins. The environmentalists generated enough political and economic pressure to prevent tuna companies from buying tuna that had been caught in driftnets. In contrast to this effort on behalf of the dolphins, these same environmentalists have done very little to help save the Pacific Ocean sharks whose population has decreased nearly to the point of extinction. Sharks are among the oldest creatures on earth, having survived in the seas for more than 350 million years. They are extremely efficient animals, feeding on wounded or dying animals, thus performing an important role in nature of weeding out the weaker animals in a species. Just the fact that species such as the Great White Shark have managed to live in the oceans for so many millions of years is enough proof of their efficiency and adaptability to changing environments. It is time for us humans, who may not survive another 1,000 years at the rate we are damaging the planet, to cast away our fears and begin considering the protection of sharks as an important part of a program for protection of all our natural environment. 1) With which of the following topics is this passage primarily concerned? A. Sharks are efficient creatures with bad reputations. B. Sharks are some of the oldest creatures on earth. C. Sharks illustrate a problem in wildlife protection. D. The campaign to save dolphins was not extended to save sharks. 2) Which of the following is most similar to the meaning of the word "warped" in line 3? A. distorted B. wasteful C. extravagant D. wanton 3) In line 7, the word "protested" is closest in meaning to which of the following? A. prescribed B. objected to C. protected D. reflected on 4) In line 8, the word "generated" could be best replaced by A. consumed B. absorbed C. designated D. produced 5) How did environmentalists manage to protect dolphins? A. They prevented fishermen from selling them for meat. B. They pressured fishermen into protecting dolphins by law. C. They brought political pressure against tuna companies. D. They created sanctuaries where dolphin fishing was not allowed. 6) About how long have sharks lived on the planet? A. 25 million years B. 150 million years C. 350 million years D. 500 million years 7) The author uses the phrase "weeding out" in line 13 to mean A. strengthening something that is weak B. feeding something that is hungry C. encouraging something that is efficient D. getting rid of something that is unwanted Nguyễn Đức Hưng* - Marie Curie Private High School
