IV. Read the passage and choose the correct answer to each question. (1p)

There is growing evidence that urbanization has a sharp impact on climate,

causing changes that can wreak havoc on precipitation patterns that supply the

precious resource of water. The heavy amounts of heat and pollution rising from

cities both delay and stimulate the fall of precipitation, deriving some areas of rain

while drenching others.



Cities are on average one to ten degrees warmer than the surrounding

undeveloped areas. Cities also produce large amounts of pollutants called aerosols,

gaseous suspensions of dust particles or byproducts from the burning of fossil

fuels. Both heat and pollutants change the dynamics of clouds. When hoisted up in

the sky, the microscopic particles act as multiple surfaces on which the moisture in

the clouds can condense as tiny droplets. This can prevent or delay the formation

of larger raindrops that fall more easily from the sky, or it can cause the rain to fall

in another location.

In California, pollution blows eastward and causes a precipitation shortage

of around one trillion gallons a year across the Sierra Nevada mountain range. By

contrast, in very humid cities, such as Houston, heat and pollutants seem to

invigorate summer storm activity by allowing clouds to build higher and fuller

before releasing torrential rains.

A. ignored

B. proved

D. imagined

A. more pollutants

C. cause damage to

B. have a positive impact on

D. make use of

5. Why is Houston mentioned in the passage?

A. To give an example of an area affected by heavy rain

B. To make a contrast with California in pollution

C. Because of Houston’s shortage of precipitation

Today, walking around Ha Noi or Ho Chi Minh City, you can easily see the

watching Disney Channel. On Vietnamese channels premiere a lot of Korean,

Chinese, American films. English songs appear in iPod or MP3 players of many



teenagers. All shows the tremendous effects of globalization on Vietnamese life,

especially Vietnamese culture.

Globalization does bring convenience and comfort to Vietnamese people.

Now we can enjoy goods and services with high quality and competitive prices as

many foreign companies join our market. Advances in communication help

eradicate geographic borders among countries and therefore connect our world.

Especially, globalization shortens the long-standing distance among different

cultures. For example, right here in Viet Nam, we can watch latest movies made in

Hollywood; we can read famous books written by authors from US, UK, EU,

Japan, China… We can see the appearance of restaurants serving Thai, Italian,

Japanese, American, Latin American food in the big cities. Moreover,

globalization is fast and useful ways to present Vietnamese culture to the whole

world.

However, that does not mean globalization does no harm to the culture of

our country. One of the most concerning problems caused by globalization is the

dominance of foreign culture of Vietnamese life. Simply put, people lose their

traditional values and begin to identify with the culture of dominant nations.

Perhaps, the most apparent and serious effect is language. Our Vietnamese people

language is facing “severe competition from other languages, especially English.
