Every year there are more and more people in the world. Factories turn out more and more products and need more and more water. We live in a world of water. But almost all of it - about 97%-is in the oceans. This water is too salty to be used for drinking, farming, and manufacturing. Only about 3% of the world's water is fresh. Most of this water is not easily 4 Tuyển tập 120 đề thi thử đại học môn Tiếng Anh năm 2014 (có đáp án kèm theo) Phần 2 (từ đề 60 đề 120) available to man because it is locked in glaciers and icecaps. There is as much water on earth today as there ever was or will ever be. Most of the water we use finds its way to the oceans. There, it is evaporated by the sun. It then falls back to the earth as rain. Water is used and reused over again. It is never used up. Although the world as a whole has plenty of fresh water, some regions have a water shortage.

Nevertheless, it has been said that today children interrupt their education to go to school. The distinction between schooling and education implied by this remark is important. Education is much more open-ended and all-inclusive than schooling. Education knows no bounds. It can take place where, whether in the shower or on the job, whether in a kitchen or on a tractor. It includes both the formal learning that takes place in schools and the whole universe of informal learning. The agents of education can range from a reserved grandparent to the people debating politics on the radio, from a child to a distinguished scientist. Whereas schooling has certain predictability, education quite often produce surprise. A change conversation with a stranger may lead a person to discover how little is know of other religions. People are engaged in education from infancy on. Education, then, is a very broad, inclusive term. It is a lifelong process, a process that starts long before the start of school and one that should be an integral part of one’s entire life. Schooling, on the other hand, is a specific, formalized process, whose general pattern varies little from one setting to the next. Throughout a country, children arrive at school at approximately the same time, take assigned seats, are taught by an adult, use similar textbook, do homework, take exams, and so on. The slices of reality that are to be learnt, whether they are the alphabet or an understanding of the workings of government, have usually been limited by the boundaries of the subject being taught. For example, high school students know that they are not likely to find out in their class the truth about political problems in their communities or what the newest filmmakers are experimenting with. There are definite conditions surrounding the formalized process of schooling. Question 76: What does the author probably mean by using the expression “children interrupt their education to go to school”? A. Going to several different schools is educationally beneficial. B. School vacations interrupt the continuity of the school year. C. Summer school makes the school year too long. D. All of life is an education. Question 77: the word “bounds” is closest in meaning to____. A. rules B. experiences C. limits D. expectation Question 78: the word “they” refers to A. slices of reality B. similar textbooks C. boundaries D. seats Question 79: The passage supports which of the following conclusions? 5 Tuyển tập 120 đề thi thử đại học môn Tiếng Anh năm 2014 (có đáp án kèm theo) Phần 2 (từ đề 60 đề 120) A. Without formal education, people would remain ignorant B. Education systems need to be radically reformed. C. Going to school is only part of how people become educated. D.

The development of advanced radio telescopes has allowed astronomers to attempt to answer a question that has long intrigued scientists, philosophers, and laypersons alike: Do other forms of intelligent life exist elsewhere in the universe? Although the legends of many ancient cultures hold that divine beings created the heavens and controlled such cosmic events as eclipses, the idea that other planets harbor life similar in development and intelligence to our own did not become popular until the nineteenth century, when a few scientists considered ways in which earthlings might contact other beings. One plan envisioned the building of huge canals in the desert in the shape of easily recognizable geometric symbols; when filled with gasoline and ignited, the canals would signal the presence of life on Earth to neighboring worlds. Since then, many astronomers have become seriously interested in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, or SETI. They assume that alien beings elsewhere in the galaxy will probably try to contact earthlings, using flashes of light to carry their messages. In 1960 one astronomer performed one of the first serious searches for extraterrestrial life, called Project Ozma. The astronomer turned a sensitive radio telescope in the direction of nearby stars Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani but found no transmissions that might be beacons from extraterrestrial civilizations. Since Project Ozma, about four dozen other searches have been conducted. No one has yet received an unambiguous signal from an extraterrestrial civilization, and numerous false alarms have been caused by interference from radio-wave sources here on Earth. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, NASA, has also been involved in SETI and sought funding from the United States Congress to build a complete receiver and to undertake a ten-year search program. One half of this search plan calls for using radio telescopes in its Deep-Space Network to repeatedly scan the entire sky. The other half involves using its 1,000-foot telescope to listen to nearby stars similar to the Sun that may have Earthlike planets orbiting around them. Although scientists realize their survey will be far from complete, they believe the search must begin with small efforts. Said one scientist: "We're new at this business, and when you walk into a dark, unfamiliar forest, you should probably listen before you shout." Question 36 What does the passage mainly discuss? A. Planets harboring extraterrestrial life B. Types of extraterrestrial civilizations C. Developments in NASA's Deep-Space Network D. The search for extraterrestrial intelligence Question 37 The word envisioned in the passage is closest in meaning to_____.

A. sending spaceships to Earth B. igniting geometrically shaped canals C. sounding loud alarms D. transmitting flashes of light Question 40 The word scan in the passage is closest in meaning to_____.

The word robot first appeared in a 1921 stage play by Czech writer Karel Capek. In the play, a man makes a machine that can think, which he calls a robot and which ends up killing its owner. In the 1940s, the American science fiction writer Isaac Asimov wrote a series of stories about robots and invented the term robotics, the science of robots. Meanwhile, in the real world, the first robots were developed by an engineer, Joseph F. Engelberger, and an inventor, George C. Devol. Together they started Unimation, a manufacturing company that produces the first real robot in 1961, called the Unimate. Robots of this type were installed at a General Motors automobile plant and proved to be a success. They worked reliably and saved money for General Motors, so other companies were soon acquiring robots as well. These industrial robots were nothing like the terrifying creatures that can often be seen in science fiction films. In fact, these robots looked and behaved nothing like humans. They were simply pieces of computer- controlled machinery, with metal “arms” or “hands”. Since they were made of metal, they could perform certain jobs that were difficult or dangerous for humans, particularly jobs that involve high heat. And since robots were tireless and never got hungry, sleepy, or distracted, they were useful for tasks that would be tiring or boring for humans. Industrial robots have been improved over the years, and today they are used in many factories around the world. Though the use of robots has meant the loss of some jobs, at the same time other jobs have been created in the design, development, and production of the robots.  Outside of industry, robots have also been developed and put to use by governments and scientists in situations where humans might be in danger. For example, they can be sent in to investigate an unexploded bomb or an accident at a nuclear power plant.  In space exploration, robots have performed many key tasks where humans could not be present, such as on the surface of Mars.  In 2004, two robotic Rovers- small six-wheeled computerized cars were sent to Mars.  Question 46 When did the word “robot” appear?
