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 from 11 to 17.
There is a common expression in the English language referring to a blue moon. When people say that
something happens "only once in a blue moon",they mean that it happens only very rarely, once in a great
while. This expression has been aruond for at least a century and a half; there are line references to this
expression that date from the second half of the nineteenth century.
The expression "a blue moon" has come to refer to the second full moon occurring in any given
calendar month. A secon full moon is not called a blue moon because it is particularly blue or is any
different in hue from the first full moon of the month. Instead, it is called a blue moon because it is so
rare. The moon needs a little more than 29 days, every month will have at least moon. Because every
month except February has more than 29 days, every month will have at least one full moon (except
February, which will have a full moon unless there is a full moon at the end og January and another full
moon at the very beginning of March). It is on the occasion when a given calendar month has a second
full moon that a blue moon occurs. This does not happen very often, only three or four times in a decade.
The blue moons of today are called blue moons because of their rarity and not because of their
color, however, the expression "blue moon" may have come into existence in reference to unusual
circumstances in which the moon actually appeared blue. Certain natural phenomena of gigantic
proportions can actually change the appearance of the moon from Earth. The eruption of the Krakatau
volcano in 1883 left dust particles in the atmosphere, which clouded the sun and gave the moon a bluish
tint. This particular occurrence of the blue moon may have given rise to the expression that we use today.
Another example occured more than a century later. When Mount Pinatubo erupted in the Philipines in
1991, the moon again took on a blue tint.
Câu 11: According to paragraph 2, the second full moon is called “the blue moon” because ______.
A. it is infrequent

A. the blue moon is bigger but darker than the first full moon
B. the occaision of the blue moon happens every four years
C. the expression “once in blue moon” is used only when blue moon appears

Experts in climatology and other scientists are becoming extremely concerned about the changes to our
climate which are taking place. Admittedly, climate changes have occurred on our planet before. For
example, there have been several ice ages or glacial periods. These climatic changes, however, were
different from the modern ones in that they occurred gradually and, as far as we know, naturally. The
changes currently being monitored are said to be the result not of natural causes, but of human activity.
Furthermore, the rate of change is becoming alarmingly rapid.
The major problem is that the planet appears to be warming up. According to some experts, this
warming process, known as global warming, is occurring at a rate unprecedented in the last 10,000 years.
The implications for the planet are very serious. Rising global temperatures could give rise to such
ecological disasters as extremely high increases in the incidence of flooding and of droughts. These in
turn could have a harmful effect on agriculture.
It is thought that this unusual warming of the Earth has been caused by so-called greenhouse
gases, such as carbon dioxide, being emitted into the atmosphere by car engines and modern industrial
processes, for example. Such gases not only add to the pollution of the atmosphere, but also create a
greenhouse effect, by which the heat of the sun is trapped. This leads to the warming up of the planet.
Politicians are also concerned about climate change and there are now regular summits on the
subject, attended by representatives from around 180 of the world’s industrialized countries. Of these
summits, the most important took place in Kyotoin Japanin 1997. There it was agreed that the most
industrialized countries would try to reduce the volume of greenhouse gas emissions and were given
targets for this reduction of emissions.
It was also suggested that more forests should be planted to create so-called sinks to absorb
greenhouse gases. At least part of the problem of rapid climate change has been caused by too drastic
deforestation. Sadly, the targets are not being met. Even more sadly, global warnings about climate
changes are often still being regarded as scaremongering.
