The 22nd Sea Games were held in Vietnam from 5 to 13 December, 2003. The Games were opened by
Vietnamese Prime Minister Phan Van Khai in the newly constructed My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi. The
Game torch was lit by Nguyen Thuy Hien of Wushu. It was the first time in the Sea Games history that the
Games venues were assigned into two cities namely Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
The 22nd Sea Games logo of painter Nguyen Chi Long is based on a legendary bird named "Chim
Lac". The bird decorated the Ngoc Lu bronze drum, a typical antiquity of the ancient Dong Son Vietnamese
culture. The Emblem is composed of harmonious and vigorous curves, creating a feeling of movement and
strength which conforms to the Olympic Spirit: "Faster, Higher and Stronger". The colorful whirls represent
the tough competitiveness in sports.
The Games' hymn was "For the world of Tomorrow", composed by Nguyen Quang Vinh. Painter
Nguyen Thai Hung chose "Trau vang", the golden water buffalo as the mascot for the 22nd SEA Games. With

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the
If parents bring up a child with the sole aim of turning the child into a genius, they will cause a
disaster. According to several leading educational psychologists, this is one of the biggest mistakes which
ambitious parents make. Generally, the child will be only too aware of what his parents expect, and will fail.
Unrealistic parental expectations can cause great damage to children.
However, if parents are not too unrealistic about what they expect their children to do, but are
ambitious in a sensible way, the child may succeed in doing very well – especially if the parents are very
supportive of their child. Michael Collins is very lucky. He is crazy about music, and his parents help him a
lot by taking him to concerts and arranging private piano and violin lessons for him. They even drive him 50
kilometers twice a week for violin lessons. Michael’s mother knows very little about music, but his father
plays the trumpet in a large orchestra. However, he never makes Michael enter music competitions if he is
unwilling. Winston Smith, Michael’s friend, however, is not so lucky. Both his parents are successful
musicians, and they set too high a standard for Winston. They want their son to be as successful as they are
and so they enter him for every piano competition held. They are very unhappy when he does not win.
Winston is always afraid that he will disappoint his parents and now he always seems quiet and unhappy.
Question 43: One of the serious mistakes parents can make is to ______.
A. push their child into trying too much
B. help their child to become a genius
C. make their child become a musician
D. neglect their child’s education
Question 44: Parents’ ambition for their children is not wrong if they ______.
A. force their children into achieving success

Question 46: The phrase "crazy about" in the passage mostly means ______.
A. "surprised at"
B. "extremely interested in"
C. "completely unaware of"
D. "confused about"
Question 47: Winston’s parents push their son so much and he ______.
