Read the following passage carefully and then choose the best answer to the questions by
circling the corresponding letter A, B, C, or D.
Man is a land animal, but he also closely tied to the sea. Throughout history the sea has served
the needs of man. The sea has provided man with food and convenient way to travel to many parts
of the world. Today, nearly two thirds of the world’s population live within 80 kilometers of the sea
coast.
In the modern technological world, the sea offers many resources to help mankind survive.
Resources on land are beginning to be used up. The sea, however, still can be hoped to supply many
man’s needs. The list of riches of the sea yet to be developed by man’s technology is impressive. Oil
and gas explorations have been carried out for nearly 30 years. Valuable amounts of minerals exist
on the ocean floor are ready to be mined.
Fish farming promises to be a good way to produce large quantities of food. The culture of fish
and shellfish is an ancient skill practiced in the past mainly by Oriental people.
Besides oil and gas, the sea may offer new sources of energy. Experts believe that the warm
temperature of the ocean can be used in a way similar to the steam in a steamship. Ocean currents
and waves offer possible use as a source of energy.
Technology is enabling man to explore ever more deeply under the sea. The development of
strong, new material has made this possible. The technology to harvest the sea continues to improve.
Experts believe that by the year 2000 the problems that prevent us from exploiting fully the food,
minerals, and energy source of the sea will be largely solved.
26. The major things that the sea offers man are ___________________.
A. fish and oil
B. minerals and oil
C. food, energy sources, and minerals
D. ocean currents and waves
27. The sea serves the needs of man as ___________________.
A. it provides man with food
B. it offers oil and other valuable sources
C. it provides man with modern technology
D. both A and B
28. We can conclude from the passage that _________________.
A. the sea resources have largely been used up
B. the sea, in a broad sense, has not yet been developed
C. the problems that prevent us from fully exploiting the sea have already been solved
D. by the year 2000, the technology will be good enough to exploit all the sea resources
29. The words Oriental people in the third paragraph means _________________.
A. people in Asia
B. people in Africa
C. European people
D. American people
30. The best title for this paragraph is _________________.
A. Seafood

the words in CAPITALS. Your answers must be written in your answer sheet.
Fiction is the writing of a story or text that is not true: It can be
(46)________________ in the form of either poetry or prose. Poetry is
a style of writing in which short lines form verses. Often, words at the
end of these lines rhyme, like “bed” and “red”. We call a group of
verses about one subject a “poem”. Prose writing does not have verses,
nor does it rhyme. It uses sentences and paragraphs. Prose is used in
magazine articles, newspaper stories, short stories, and books.
Prose fiction has (47)________________since ancient times, but
most early fiction was actually written as poetry. Scholars disagree
about the date of the first prose fiction book, or novel. Some scholars
classify fictional stories from ancient Greece and Rome as the early
novels in Asia as early as the 6th century. These early novels were
mostly short adventure stories about fictional characters.
In Europe, prose fiction (48)________________to seriously
challenge poetry in the 16th century. A Spanish author, Cervantes,
wrote Europe’s first prose novel in the early 1600s. However, longer
novels, like Cervantes’s Don Quixote, did not become very
(49)________________until the 1700s. By that time, there
(50)________________more printing presses, and more people knew
how to read. In addition, more people had money to buy these books.
Today, the vast majority of fiction is written in prose rather than in
poetry. Prose: văn xuôi; verse: thơ
