VII. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to
indicate the correct answer to each of the following questions.
A rather surprising geographical feature of Antarctica is that a huge freshwater lake, one of the
world’s largest and deepest, lies hidden there under four kilometers of ice. Now known as Lake
Vostok, this huge body of water is located under the ice block that comprises Antarctica. The lake is
able to exist in its unfrozen state beneath this block of ice because its waters are warmed by

VnDoc - Tải tài liệu, văn bản pháp luật, biểu mẫu miễn phí

geothermal heat from the earth’s core. The thick glacier above Lake Vostok actually insulates it from
the frigid temperatures on the surface.
The lake was first discovered in the 1970s while a research team was conducting an aerial
survey of the area. Radio waves from the survey equipment penetrated the ice and revealed a body of
water of indeterminate size. It was not until much more recently that data collected by satellite made
scientists aware of the tremendous size of the lake; the satellite –borne radar detected an extremely
flat region where the ice remains level because it is floating on the water of the lake.
The discovery of such a huge freshwater lake trapped under Antarctica is of interest to the
scientific community because of the potential that the lake contains ancient microbes that have
survived for thousands upon thousands of years, unaffected by factors such as nuclear fallout and
elevated ultraviolet light that have affected organism in more exposed areas. The downside of the
discovery, however, lies in the difficulty of conducting research on the lake in such a harsh climate
and in the problems associated with obtaining uncontaminated samples from the lake without actually
exposing the lake to contamination. Scientists are looking for possible way to accomplish this.
Question 45: The purpose of the passage is to ______.
A. explain how Lake Vostok was discovered
B. discuss future plans for Lake Vostok
C. present an unexpected aspect of Antarctica’s geography
D. provide satellite data concerning Antarctica

C. sleeps

D. inclines.

Question 47: What is true of Lake Vostok?
A. It is completely frozen.

B. It is not a saltwater lake.

C. It is beneath a thick slab of ice.

D. It is heated by the sun.

Question 48: Which of the following is closet in meaning to “frigid”?
A. Rarely recorded

B. Extremely cold

C. Never changing

D. Quite harsh

49: All of the following are true about the 1970 survey of Antarctica EXCEPT that it

A. was controlled by a satellite

B. made use of radio waves

C. was conducted by air

D. did not measure the exact size of the lake

Question 50: It can be inferred from the passage that the ice would not be flat if ______.

A. further discoveries on the surface of Antarctica

VIII. Read the passage and choose the best answer to each questions.
Very few people in the modern world obtain their food supply by hunting and gathering in the
natural environment surrounding their homes. This method of harvesting from nature’s provision is
the oldest subsistence strategy, and has been practiced for at least two million years. It was, indeed,
the only way to obtain food until rudimentary farming and the domestication of animals were
introduced about 10,000 years ago.
Because hunter-gathers have fared poorly in comparison with their agricultural cousins, their
numbers have dwindled, and they have been forced to live in marginal environments such as deserts
forests or arctic wasteland. In higher latitudes, the shorter growing season has restricted the
availability of plant life. Such conditions have caused a greater independence on hunting, and along
the coasts and waterways, on fishing. The abundance of vegetation in the lower latitudes of the
tropics, on the other hand, has provided a greater opportunity for gathering a variety of plants. In
short, the environmental differences have restricted the diet and have limited and possibilities for the
development of subsistence societies. Contemporary hunter- gathers may help us understand our
prehistoric ancestors. We know from the observation of modern hunter- gathers in both Africa and
Alaska that society based on hunting and gathering must be very mobile. While the entire community
camps in a central location, a smaller party harvests the food within a reasonable distance from the
camp. When the food in the area is exhausted, the community moves on to exploit another site. We
also notice a seasonal migration on pattern evolving for most hunter gathers, along with a restrict

division of labor between sexes. These patterns of behavior may be similar to those practiced by
mankind during the Paleolithic Period.

C. preliminary

D. ancient

Question 58: The phrase “in short” can be replaced by ______.
A. in want

B. shortly

C. in demand

D. to cut a long story short

Question 59: The word “abundance” is closest in meaning to ______.

C. majority

D. density

Question 60: The word “mobile” is closest in meaning to ______.

C. carried

D. transportable

Question 61: When was hunting and gathering introduced?
A. 10. 000 years

B. 2000 years ago

C. 2000000 years ago D. 1000000 years ago

Question 62: What conditions exist in the lower latitude?
A. more coasts and waterways for fishing

B. greater dependence on hunting

C. a large variety of plant life

D. a shorter growing season

Question 63: How can we know more about hunter-gathers of prehistoric time?
A. by studying similar contemporary societies. B. by studying the remains of their campsites.
C. by practicing hunting and gathering.

D. by studying the prehistoric environment.

Question 64: Which of the following is not mentioned in the above passage?
A. Because of the shorter growing season in higher latitude, the availability of plants is limited.
B. More and more people in the modern time live on the food they gather in the natural
C. The more vegetable in the lower latitude in the tropics there is, the greater opportunity for
gathering around their homes.
D. The environmental differences result in restricted diet.
