Family and Money
The modern world is changing family relationships. The cost of living has had an influence on how the
American family behaves. It may not be the best thing.

Trang 3/5 - Mã đề thi 132


Several decades ago, the father went to work. His paycheck paid the bills. The mother stayed home.
She might have volunteered at a local church or a community program. Children went to school.
Sometimes they had a small job on weekends when they were teenagers.
In many parts of the United States, things are different. The cost of living is on the rise. The greatest
increases in the cost of living are seen in property prices and in health care. Basically, one salary is not
enough to buy or rent a house and pay the bills. As a result, both parents must work. This helps the family
keep a roof over their heads, and they can go to the doctor when they need to.
When both parents work, it changes the amount of time that the child spends with them. Many parents
put their children in day care. This has the benefit of ensuring the children’s care. But it also reduces the
amount of time that parents spend with their children in their early years. What is more, day care is an
extra expense. Both parents must work more.
During the school years, it is often the case that children come home before their parents do. They are
called latchkey kids because they let themselves in the door. Mother is not waiting at home to open the
door for the child. This time alone puts him at risk to things like drugs or crime. The child may get in
trouble more often because he is not supervised.
Rising expenses are changing how families live. While working hard for better lives, they open
themselves up to different risks.
Câu 38: According to the passage, which of the following is true of the cost of living 30 years ago?
A. One salary was enough to cover expenses.
B. Mother needed to work long hours.
C. Father were paid in cash, not in checks.
D. The cost of living was the same as now.
Câu 39: The word ensuring in the passage is closest in meaning to
A. benefiting
B. making
C. guaranteeing
D. timing
Câu 40: The author mentions latchkey kids in order to
A. show the consequences of rising costs
B. describe what latchkey kids do
C. explain why latchkey kids are important
D. demonstrate the need for health care
Câu 41: The word that in the passage refers to
A. child
B. day care
C. benefit
D. time
Câu 42: According to paragraph 3, which of the following is NOT true?
A. Doctors are raising their fees.
B. Property prices are increasing.
C. Two salaries are needed to pay bills.
D. The cost of living is increasing.
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.
Light pollution
Light pollution is an excessive, wasteful and obstructive light resulting from human activities. It is
mostly seen in densely-populated cities and industrialized areas. The pollution includes the light used in
factories and office buildings, commercial properties, streetlights, illuminated sporting venues and
infrastructure. As beneficial as the invention of light and the development of industrialization have been
to mankind, their secondary effect, light pollution, is adverse in multiple ways.
The two main types of light pollution recognized by environmentalists are light that intrudes on a
natural setting and the use of disproportionate amount of light indoors. Light pollution may also be
defined according to very specific categories into light trespass, glare and clutter. Light trespass happens
when unwanted light enters someone’s property. For example, a neighbor turns on a bright light in his
yard and this light enters a neighbouring bedroom window, causing sleep deprivation or obstructing an
evening view. Glare is the extreme contrast between light and dark areas such that the human eye has
difficulty in adjusting. Glare is not merely annoying, but bright lights on dark roads can obscure night
vision for motorists temporarily, with accidents sometimes being the result. Clutter is the presence of
numerous groups of lights. It may produce confusion and distract viewers. Badly designed street lights
and neon advertising signs come under this category.
Even a small amount of light pollution can have a negative influence on its surrounding. For the novice
astronomer, a little light can make it difficult to observe the night sky; this is the reason observatories are
located in areas where light emissions are forbidden. For the human body, excessive light is detrimental.
Trang 4/5 - Mã đề thi 132


Ailments such as headaches, fatigue, stress, high blood pressure and anxiety are common to those who are
constantly exposed to light. The effects of light pollution on animals are just devastating. Birds that
migrate to the south for the winter are disoriented by lights on tall buildings, and they are sometimes
attracted to these lights: millions die when they collide with these buildings. Zooplankton is unable to rise
to the surface of a water body to eat algae because of bright light; the algae blooms overgrow, killing off
other plants and destroying the water quality. The circadian rhythm of reptiles, insects and other animals
is affected when light keeps them awake.
Although the United States government is aware of the problem, it has ben a challenge to draw up and
enforce lighting regulations for the entire country. Some cities have formulated their own standards and
solutions regarding outdoor lighting, but on the whole, the same standards cannot be administered in
every city. Some solutions include minimizing the use of light, using timers to turn off lights
automatically, utilizing the most pertinent types of light, redesigning plans and using sodium light which
emits a single wavelength of light that is easier to filter.
Câu 43: Which sentence below best expresses the essential information in the highlighted sentence in the
passage?
A. There are two essential forms of light pollution: one invades nature and the other is and excessive
quantity within a building.
B. There is a disproportionate amount of light in cities, with the indoors having more light than the
outdoors.
C. The excessive amount of light in natural surroundings is the worst form of light pollution.
D. The most destructive forms of light pollution are those that affect organisms both indoors and
outdoors.
Câu 44: According to paragraph 4, certain cities in the United States cope with light pollution by
A. following government standards
B. developing their own solutions
C. enforcing city-wide regulations
D. keeping lights turned off
Câu 45: Which of the following is mentioned about light in paragraph 1?
A. It has benefited humans considerably.
B. It is most harmful in heavily-populated cities.
C. Its great inconvenience has been to industry.
D. It is distracting when it is bright.
Câu 46: The word their in the passage refers to
A. human activities
B. multiple ways
C. light invention and industrialization
D. densely-populated cities and industrialized areas
Câu 47: The word obstructive in the passage is closest in meaning to
A. extractive
B. devastating
C. conspicuous
D. inaccurate
Câu 48: What is the passage mainly about?
A. Main types of light pollution.
B. An injurious phenomenon known as light pollution
C. Causes of light pollution.
D. Consequences of light pollutions.
Câu 49: Why does the author mention a neighbor in the passage?
A. To explain the different degrees of brightness.
B. To illustrate how light can be undesired.
C. To describe the effects of bright light.
D. To provide evidence that not everyone shuns light during sleep.
Câu 50: The word millions in the passage refers to
A. birds
B. buildings
C. animals
D. lights

The two main types of light pollution recognized by environmentalists are light that intrudes on a
natural setting and the use of disproportionate amount of light indoors. Light pollution may also be
defined according to very specific categories into light trespass, glare and clutter. Light trespass happens
when unwanted light enters someone’s property. For example, a neighbor turns on a bright light in his
yard and this light enters a neighbouring bedroom window, causing sleep deprivation or obstructing an
evening view. Glare is the extreme contrast between light and dark areas such that the human eye has
difficulty in adjusting. Glare is not merely annoying, but bright lights on dark roads can obscure night
vision for motorists temporarily, with accidents sometimes being the result. Clutter is the presence of
numerous groups of lights. It may produce confusion and distract viewers. Badly designed street lights
and neon advertising signs come under this category.
Even a small amount of light pollution can have a negative influence on its surrounding. For the novice
astronomer, a little light can make it difficult to observe the night sky; this is the reason observatories are
located in areas where light emissions are forbidden. For the human body, excessive light is detrimental.
Ailments such as headaches, fatigue, stress, high blood pressure and anxiety are common to those who are
constantly exposed to light. The effects of light pollution on animals are just devastating. Birds that
migrate to the south for the winter are disoriented by lights on tall buildings, and they are sometimes
attracted to these lights: millions die when they collide with these buildings. Zooplankton is unable to rise
to the surface of a water body to eat algae because of bright light; the algae blooms overgrow, killing off

other plants and destroying the water quality. The circadian rhythm of reptiles, insects and other animals
is affected when light keeps them awake.
Although the United States government is aware of the problem, it has ben a challenge to draw up and
enforce lighting regulations for the entire country. Some cities have formulated their own standards and
solutions regarding outdoor lighting, but on the whole, the same standards cannot be administered in
every city. Some solutions include minimizing the use of light, using timers to turn off lights
automatically, utilizing the most pertinent types of light, redesigning plans and using sodium light which
emits a single wavelength of light that is easier to filter.
Câu 43: Which sentence below best expresses the essential information in the highlighted sentence in the
passage?
A. There are two essential forms of light pollution: one invades nature and the other is and excessive
quantity within a building.
B. There is a disproportionate amount of light in cities, with the indoors having more light than the
outdoors.
C. The excessive amount of light in natural surroundings is the worst form of light pollution.

Light pollution
Light pollution is an excessive, wasteful and obstructive light resulting from human activities. It is
mostly seen in densely-populated cities and industrialized areas. The pollution includes the light used in
factories and office buildings, commercial properties, streetlights, illuminated sporting venues and
infrastructure. As beneficial as the invention of light and the development of industrialization have been
to mankind, their secondary effect, light pollution, is adverse in multiple ways.
The two main types of light pollution recognized by environmentalists are light that intrudes on a

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.
Family and Money
The modern world is changing family relationships. The cost of living has had an influence on how the
American family behaves. It may not be the best thing.
Several decades ago, the father went to work. His paycheck paid the bills. The mother stayed home.
She might have volunteered at a local church or a community program. Children went to school.
Sometimes they had a small job on weekends when they were teenagers.
In many parts of the United States, things are different. The cost of living is on the rise. The greatest
increases in the cost of living are seen in property prices and in health care. Basically, one salary is not
enough to buy or rent a house and pay the bills. As a result, both parents must work. This helps the family
keep a roof over their heads, and they can go to the doctor when they need to.
When both parents work, it changes the amount of time that the child spends with them. Many parents
put their children in day care. This has the benefit of ensuring the children’s care. But it also reduces the
amount of time that parents spend with their children in their early years. What is more, day care is an
extra expense. Both parents must work more.
During the school years, it is often the case that children come home before their parents do. They are
called latchkey kids because they let themselves in the door. Mother is not waiting at home to open the
door for the child. This time alone puts him at risk to things like drugs or crime. The child may get in
trouble more often because he is not supervised.
Rising expenses are changing how families live. While working hard for better lives, they open
themselves up to different risks.
Câu 46: The word ensuring in the passage is closest in meaning to
A. benefiting
B. making
C. timing
D. guaranteeing
Câu 47: The word that in the passage refers to
A. child
B. benefit
C. time
D. day care
Câu 48: The author mentions latchkey kids in order to
A. describe what latchkey kids do
B. explain why latchkey kids are important
C. demonstrate the need for health care
D. show the consequences of rising costs
Câu 49: According to paragraph 3, which of the following is NOT true?
A. Doctors are raising their fees.
B. Property prices are increasing.
C. Two salaries are needed to pay bills.
D. The cost of living is increasing.
Câu 50: According to the passage, which of the following is true of the cost of living 30 years ago?
A. Mother needed to work long hours.
B. One salary was enough to cover expenses.
C. The cost of living was the same as now.
D. Father were paid in cash, not in checks.

Light pollution
Light pollution is an excessive, wasteful and obstructive light resulting from human activities. It is
mostly seen in densely-populated cities and industrialized areas. The pollution includes the light used in
factories and office buildings, commercial properties, streetlights, illuminated sporting venues and
infrastructure. As beneficial as the invention of light and the development of industrialization have been
to mankind, their secondary effect, light pollution, is adverse in multiple ways.
The two main types of light pollution recognized by environmentalists are light that intrudes on a
natural setting and the use of disproportionate amount of light indoors. Light pollution may also be
defined according to very specific categories into light trespass, glare and clutter. Light trespass happens
when unwanted light enters someone’s property. For example, a neighbor turns on a bright light in his
yard and this light enters a neighbouring bedroom window, causing sleep deprivation or obstructing an
evening view. Glare is the extreme contrast between light and dark areas such that the human eye has
difficulty in adjusting. Glare is not merely annoying, but bright lights on dark roads can obscure night
vision for motorists temporarily, with accidents sometimes being the result. Clutter is the presence of
numerous groups of lights. It may produce confusion and distract viewers. Badly designed street lights
and neon advertising signs come under this category.
Even a small amount of light pollution can have a negative influence on its surrounding. For the novice
astronomer, a little light can make it difficult to observe the night sky; this is the reason observatories are
located in areas where light emissions are forbidden. For the human body, excessive light is detrimental.
Ailments such as headaches, fatigue, stress, high blood pressure and anxiety are common to those who are
constantly exposed to light. The effects of light pollution on animals are just devastating. Birds that
migrate to the south for the winter are disoriented by lights on tall buildings, and they are sometimes
attracted to these lights: millions die when they collide with these buildings. Zooplankton is unable to rise
to the surface of a water body to eat algae because of bright light; the algae blooms overgrow, killing off
other plants and destroying the water quality. The circadian rhythm of reptiles, insects and other animals
is affected when light keeps them awake.
Although the United States government is aware of the problem, it has ben a challenge to draw up and
enforce lighting regulations for the entire country. Some cities have formulated their own standards and
solutions regarding outdoor lighting, but on the whole, the same standards cannot be administered in
every city. Some solutions include minimizing the use of light, using timers to turn off lights
automatically, utilizing the most pertinent types of light, redesigning plans and using sodium light which
emits a single wavelength of light that is easier to filter.

correct answer to each of the questions.
Family and Money
The modern world is changing family relationships. The cost of living has had an influence on how the
American family behaves. It may not be the best thing.
Several decades ago, the father went to work. His paycheck paid the bills. The mother stayed home.
She might have volunteered at a local church or a community program. Children went to school.
Sometimes they had a small job on weekends when they were teenagers.
In many parts of the United States, things are different. The cost of living is on the rise. The greatest
increases in the cost of living are seen in property prices and in health care. Basically, one salary is not
enough to buy or rent a house and pay the bills. As a result, both parents must work. This helps the family
keep a roof over their heads, and they can go to the doctor when they need to.
When both parents work, it changes the amount of time that the child spends with them. Many parents
put their children in day care. This has the benefit of ensuring the children’s care. But it also reduces the
amount of time that parents spend with their children in their early years. What is more, day care is an
extra expense. Both parents must work more.
During the school years, it is often the case that children come home before their parents do. They are
called latchkey kids because they let themselves in the door. Mother is not waiting at home to open the
door for the child. This time alone puts him at risk to things like drugs or crime. The child may get in
trouble more often because he is not supervised.
Rising expenses are changing how families live. While working hard for better lives, they open
themselves up to different risks.
Câu 38: According to paragraph 3, which of the following is NOT true?
A. Property prices are increasing.
B. Doctors are raising their fees.
C. Two salaries are needed to pay bills.
D. The cost of living is increasing.
Câu 39: The author mentions latchkey kids in order to
A. demonstrate the need for health care
B. explain why latchkey kids are important
C. describe what latchkey kids do
D. show the consequences of rising costs
Câu 40: According to the passage, which of the following is true of the cost of living 30 years ago?
A. One salary was enough to cover expenses.
B. The cost of living was the same as now.
C. Mother needed to work long hours.
D. Father were paid in cash, not in checks.
Câu 41: The word ensuring in the passage is closest in meaning to
A. guaranteeing
B. making
C. benefiting
D. timing
