answer to each of the questions
MOBILE PHONES: Are they about to
transform our lives?
We love them so much that some of us sleep with them under the pillow, yet we are increasingly concerned
that we cannot escape their electronic reach. We use them to convey our most intimate secrets, yet we worry
that they are a threat to our privacy. We rely on them more than the Internet to cope with modern life, yet many
of us don’t believe advertisements saying we need more advanced services.
Sweeping aside the doubts that many people feel about the benefits of new third generations phones and fears
over the health effects of phone masts, a recent report claims that the long-term effects of new mobile
technologies will be entirely positive so long as the public can be convinced to make use of them. Research
about users of mobile phones reveals that the mobile has already moved beyond being a mere practical
communications tool to become the backbone of modern social life, from love affairs to friendship to work.
The close relationship between user and phone is most pronounced among teenagers, the report says, who
regard their mobiles as an expression of their identity. This is partly because mobiles are seen as being beyond
the control of parents. But the researchers suggest that another reason may be that mobiles, especially text
messaging was seen as a way of overcoming shyness. The impact of phones, however, has been local rather
than global, supporting existing friendship and networks, rather than opening users to a new broader
community. Even the language of texting in one area can be incomprehensible to anybody from another area.
Among the most important benefits of using mobiles phones, the report claims, will be a vastly improved
mobile infrastructure, providing gains throughout the economy, and the provision of a more sophisticated
location-based services for users. The report calls on government to put more effort into the delivery of services
by mobile phone, with suggestion including public transport and traffic information and doctors’ text messages
to remind patients of appointments. There are many possibilities. At a recent trade fair in Sweden, a mobile
navigation product was launched. When the user enters a destination, a route is automatically downloaded to
their mobile and presented by voices, pictures and maps as they drive. In future, these devices will also be able
to plan around congestion and road works in real time. Third generation phones will also allow for remote
monitoring of patients by doctors. In Britain scientists are developing an asthma management solution using
mobiles to detect early signs of an attack.
Mobile phones can be used in education. A group of teachers in Britain use third generation phones to
provide fast internet service to children who live beyond the reach of terrestrial broadband services and can
have no access to online information. ‘As the new generation of mobile technologies takes off, the social
potential of the vastly increase,’ the report argues.

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 questions
Psychologists have debated a long time about whether a child’s upbringing can give it the ability to do
outstandingly well. Some think that it is impossible to develop genius and say that it is simply something a
person is born with. Others, however, argue that the potential for great achievement can be developed. The
truth lies somewhere between these two extremes.
It seems very obvious that being born with the right qualities from gifted parents will increase a child’s
ability to do well. However, this ability will be fully realized only with the right upbringing and opportunities.
As one psychologist says,” To have a fast car, you need both a good engine and fuel.” Scientists have
recently assessed intelligence, achievement, and ability in 50 sets of identical twins that were separated shortly
after birth and brought up by different parents. They found that achievement was based on intelligence, and
later influenced by the child’s environment.
One case involving very intelligent twins was quoted. One of the twins received a normal upbringing, and
performed well. The other twin, however, was brought up by extremely supportive parents and given every
possible opportunity to develop its abilities. That twin, though starting out with the same degree of intelligence
as the other, performed even better.
This case reflects the general principle of intelligence and ability. The more favorable the environment, the
more a child’s intelligence and ability are developed. However, there is no link between intelligence and
socioeconomic level of a child’s family. In other words, it does not matter how poor or how rich a family is, as
this does not affect the intelligence.
Gifted people cannot be created by supportive parents, but they can be developed by them. One professor of
music said that outstanding musicians usually started two or three years earlier than ordinary performers, often
because their parents had recognized their ability. These musicians then needed at least ten years’ hard work
and training in order to reach the level they were capable of attaining.
People who want to have very gifted children are given the following advice:
+ Marry an intelligent person.
+ Allow children to follow their own interests rather than the interests of the parents.
+ Start a child’s education early but avoid pushing the child too hard.
+ Encourage children to play; for example, playing with musical instrument is essential for a child who wants
become an outstanding musician.
Question 56: When scientists studied intelligence and ability in twins, they found that ______.
A. different twins generally have different levels of ability
B. ability depends mainly on intelligence and achievement
C. intelligence and development are irrelevant to ability
D. ability depends both on intelligence and environment
Question 57: Scientists chose twins for their study because ______.
A. they have the same genetic background, usually with similar intelligence
CREATED & RELEASED by Đỗ Bình – THPT Liễn Sơn, Lập Thạch, Vĩnh Phúc – binhbac72@gmail.com

B. they are born into the same family, hence the same upbringing
C. they have the same economic background and hence the same opportunities
D. each twin has the same environment as his/ her twin
Question 58: How were great musicians different from ordinary musicians in their development?
A. They practice playing their instruments for many years
B. They were exceptionally intelligent and artistic
C. They concentrated on music to the exclusion of other areas
D. Their ability was realized at an early stage and then nurtured .
Question 59: The writer advises that gifted children should be allowed to follow ______.
A. only their interests in computer games

II. Topic: Good neighbors are as good as relatives. What do you think about this?
Neighbors are the people who live near us, and their behavior influence our daily life. Good neighbors
can make us feel comfortable and give us many help, and everyone will benefit from a good relationship among
neighbors. In my point of view, these are three conspicuous aspects of the qualities of a good neighbors.
One of the most important characteristic of good neighbors is that they have a good living habit and are
friendly to others. A person with bad habit will affect your daily life. For example, children are most likely to
be influenced by bad neighbors and carry on bad habits. On the other hand, being friendly is also an important
nature of good neighbors. If neighbors are unfriendly, they are hard to approach and difficult to get along
Another important aspect of good neighbors is that they should be willing to help others. In our daily
life, emergency situations may happen, and we may encounter difficulties which cannot be resolved by

ourselves. At this time, the quickest help we can get is probably from our neighbors. To some degree, neighbors
are as important as relatives to us, because they could provide the immediate help. In the same way, a neighbor
who likes to help others will get help in return. Help each others can form a friendly and harmonious
relationship among the neighbors.
All in all, a good neighbor is someone who have a good living habit, is friendly and is willing to help
others. Taking into account of all these factors, we may reach the conclusion that a good relationship among
neighbors need the maintenance from us.
