CLASSICAL MUSIC
Some famous classical composers were Bach, Vivaldi, Haydn, and Mozart. In their music, they did not tell
a story or show strong emotion. They wanted to make a beautiful, interesting design. They wanted to write
lovely sounds.
Then composers started to interpret ideas. They told stories about wars, armies and soldiers. They wrote
about region. Sometimes they composed music for holidays. They told love stories and showed strong emotion.
Classical music stays with people a long time. Bach wrote about 300 years ago, and Tchaikovsky wrote
over 100 years.
Sometimes people close their eyes to listen to classical music. When they close their eyes, they can see
design. They can listen to the same classical music many times and enjoy it. Sometimes it is difficult to

important to people.

We know that every year less than 100 people are attacked by sharks and about 5 to 10 of these people die. But, let's
look at the other side of the story - How many sharks do people kill? Well, I think you already know this: People kill
many more sharks. Every year, people hunt and kill thousands of sharks. One reason people kill sharks is for sport;
they hunt them just for fun. Some people started to have contests to see who kill the most sharks or the biggest
sharks. Another reason that people kill sharks is for food. In some countries, such as the United States and Great
Britain, shark meat is a popular food. In other countries, such as China, people use shark fins to make soup. Because
so many people like to eat shark, fishing boats catch a lot of sharks to sell for food.

Ms. Ta Thanh Hien – Hanoi University – Lize.vn – H&H English Centre


So, for both of these reasons, people are killing many sharks. Some biologists are getting worried that the
number of sharks is getting too small. That's why many biologists think we should stop killing so many sharks, and
instead try to protect them - or else some day they may all be gone. Some countries have already passed some laws
to help protect sharks. The United States, for example, has passed laws that limit the number of sharks that people
can kill for food or for sport. So even though some people like to hunt sharks, we do need to protect them.
36. How many sharks are hunted and killed every year?
A. thousands

B. many

C. five to ten

D. one hundred

37. People want to kill sharks because________
A. they are afraid of sharks.

A. not getting worried by some biologists.

B. being killed.

C. getting bigger.

D getting smaller.

39. Why do biologists want to protect sharks?
A. Because they want to learn more about sharks.

B. Because of the number of sharks that were killed.

C. Because they are afraid some day sharks may no longer exist.
D. Because shark fins can be used in medicine.
40. Which of the following is Not mentioned in the passage?

People have been hunting whales for at least a thousand years, and there were no real problems until 20th
century. What happened was that fishing technology became much more efficient and the ships were much faster,
so more and more whales were caught. In the 1960s the main whaling countries were killing more than sixty
thousand whales a year, and everyone began to realize that something had to be done.
It was environmental groups like Greenpeace that really made things change. They set out to make people
aware of the fact that whales were fast becoming extinct. But even now we don’t know if all this interest has
become too late. Let’s take the great blue whale for example, which at thirty to forty metres long is the biggest
animal there has ever been – now there are perhaps about two thousand or so left. In fact they have been
protected for quite a long time, but there is no sign that the population is growing.
