Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

Recent technological advances in manned and unmanned vehicles, along with breakthroughs in satellite technology

and computer equipment, have overcome some of the limitations of divers and diving equipment for scientists doing research

on the great oceans of the world.Without a vehicle, divers often became sluggish, and their mental concentration was

severely limited.Because undersea pressure affects their speech organs, communication among divers has always been

difficult or impossible. But today, most oceanographers avoid the use of vulnerable human divers, preferring to reduce the

risk to human life and make direct observations by means of instruments that are lowered into the ocean, from samples

taken from the water, or from photographs made by orbiting satellites. Direct observations of the ocean floor can be made not

only by divers but also by deep-diving submarines in the water and even by the technology of sophisticated aerial

photography from vantage points above the surface of the water. Some submarines can dive to depths of more than seven

miles and cruise at depths of fifteen thousand feet. In addition, radio-equipped buoys can be operated by remote control in

order to transmit informationback to land-based laboratories via satellite. Particularly important for ocean study are data

about water temperature, currents, and weather. Satellite photographs can show the distribution of sea ice, oil slicks, and

cloud formations over the ocean. Maps created from satellite pictures can represent the temperature and the color of the

ocean’s surface, enabling researchers to study the ocean currents from laboratories on dry land.Furthermore, computers

creating a model of the ocean’s movement and characteristics, scientists can predict the patterns and possible effects of the

ocean on the environment.

Recently, many oceanographers have been relying more on satellites and computers than on research ships or even

submarine vehicles because they can supply a greater range of information more quickly and more effective. Some of

humankind’s most serious problems, especially those concerning energy and food, may be solved with the help of

observations made possible by this new technology.

GOOD FRIENDS

Psychologists have long known that having a set of cherished companions is crucial to mental well-being. A recent study

by Australian investigators concluded that our friends even help to (41) ______ our lives. The study concentrated (42)

_______ the social environment, general health, and lifestyle of 1,477 persons older than 70 years. The participants were

asked how much contact they had with friends, children, relatives and acquaintances.

Researchers were surprised to learn that friendships increased life (43) _______ to a far greater extent than frequent

contact with children and other relatives. This benefit held true even after these friends had moved away to another city and

was independent of factors such as socio- economic status, health, and way of life. According to scientists, the ability to have

relationships with people to (44) _______ one is important has a positive effect on physical and mental health. Stress and

tendency towards depression are reduced, and behaviours that are damaging to health, such as smoking and drinking, occur

less frequently. (45) ________, our support networks, in times of calamity in particular, can raise our moods and feelings of

self-worth and offer helpful strategies for dealing with difficult personal challenges.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the

questions.

We get great pleasure from reading. The more advanced a man is, the greater delight he will find in reading. The

ordinary man may think that subjects like philosophy or science are very difficult and that if philosophers and scientists read

these subjects, it is not for pleasure. But this is not true. The mathematician finds the same pleasure in his mathematics as

the school boy in an adventure story. For both, it is a play of the imagination, a mental recreation and exercise.

The pleasure derived from this activity is common to all kinds of reading. But different types of books give us

different types of pleasure. First in order of popularity is novel-reading. Novels contain pictures of imaginary people in

imaginary situations, and give us an opportunity of escaping into a new world very much like our world and yet different

from it. Here we seem to live a new life, and the experience of this new life gives us a thrill of pleasure.

Next in order of popularity are travel books, biographies and memoirs. These tell us tales of places we have not

seen and of great men in whom we are interested. Some of these books are as wonderful as novels, and they have an

Page32



TÀI LIỆU ÔN LUYỆN THI THPT QUỐC GIA | 2019



added value that they are true. Such books give us knowledge, and we also find immense pleasure in knowing details of

lands we have not seen and of great men we have only heard of.

Reading is one of the greatest enjoyments of life. To book-lovers, nothing is more fascinating than a favorite book.

And, the ordinary educated man who is interested and absorbed in his daily occupation wants to occasionally escape from

his drudgery into the wonderland of books for recreation and refreshment.

Question 46. What does the passage mainly discuss?

A. Different types of books

B. Different kinds of reading

C. Reading as an exercise for the brain

D. Reading as a pleasurable activity

Question 47. According to paragraph 1, which of the following is NOT true?

A.Ordinary people may think that philosophy and science aredifficult.

B.Reading about mathematics is mentally entertaining for amathematician.

C. Philosophers and scientists do not read forpleasure.

D.A more advanced person takes greater pleasure inreading.

C. bought

D. obtained

Question 49. The word “it” in paragraph 2refersto

.

A. a new life

B. our world

C. an opportunity
