II. READING (2.0 points) 

PART 1. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the  correct answer to each of the questions from 1 to 5. (1.0 point) 

Most journeys in Britain and the US are made by road. Some of these are made on public  transport but most are by private car. 

In Britain many people rely on their cars for daily local activities, e.g. getting to work, doing the shopping, and visiting friends. People living in urban areas may use buses, trains or, in  London, the Underground, to get to city centers, mainly because traffic is often heavy and it  is difficult to find anywhere to park a car. Some places in the country may have a bus only  

two or three times a week so people living there have no choice but to rely on their cars. In the US large cities have good public transportation systems. The El railroad in Chicago  and the underground systems of New York, Boston, San Francisco and Washington DC are  heavily used. Elsewhere, most Americans prefer to use their cars. Families often have two cars and, outside major cities, have to drive fairly long distances to schools, offices,  shops, banks, etc. Many college and even high-school students have their own cars. Long-distance travel in Britain is also mainly by road, though railways link most towns and  cities. Most places are linked by motorways or other fast roads and many people prefer to drive at their own convenience rather than use a train, even though they may get stuck in a  traffic jam. Long- distance coach/bus services are usually a cheaper alternative to trains, but  they take longer and may be less comfortable. Some long-distance travel, especially that  undertaken for business reasons, may be by air. There are regular flights between regional  airports, as well as to and from London. A lot of freight is also distributed by road, though  heavier items and raw materials often go by rail. 

In the US much long-distance travel is by air. America has two main long-distance bus companies, Greyhound and Trailways. Amtrak, the national network, provides rail services  for passengers. Private railway companies such as Union Pacific now carry only freight, though in fact over 70% of freight goes by road. 

The main problems associated with road transport in both Britain and the US are traffic congestion and pollution. It is predicted that the number of cars on British roads will increase  by a third within a few years, making both these problems worse. The British government would like more people to use public transport, but so far they have had little success in persuading people to give up their cars or to share rides with neighbours. Most people say that public transport is simply not good enough. Americans too have resisted government  

requests to share cars because it is less convenient and restricts their freedom. Petrol/gasoline is relatively cheap in the US and outside the major cities public transport is bad, so they  see no reason to use their cars less. 

(Extracted from Oxford Guide to British and American Culture, Oxford University Press, 2000) 1. In Britain and the US most people travel by . 

A. sea B. rail C. road D. air 2. According to the passage, people in London may prefer the Underground to their own cars due to . 

A. cheap tickets B. air pollution C. long distances D. heavy traffic 3. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage? 

A. Few college students in the US have their own cars. 

B. Families in the US often have more than one car. 

C. Most Americans prefer to drive their cars outside large cities. 

D. The underground systems are popular in some major US cities.

4. The phrase “at their own convenience” in paragraph 4 is closest in meaning to  A. at the latest time and nearest place  

B. at an appropriate time and place 

C. at an early time and nearby place  

D. at the fastest time and nearest place 

5. According to the passage, people in Britain refuse public transport because . A. they like to share rides with neighbours  

B. they think it is not good enough 

C. they see no reason to use their cars less  

D. petrol is relatively cheap in Britain 

PART 2. You are going to read an article in which the writer looks at the harm done by  plastic bags and ways of reducing this. Five sentences have been removed from the article.  Choose from the sentences A-F the one which fits each gap (1-5). There is one extra  sentence which you do not need to use. (1.0 point) 


By Michael McCarthy 

Plastic bags are one of the greatest problems of the consumer society - or to be more precise,  of the throwaway society.  

According to a recent study, whereas plastic bags were rarely seen at sea in the late eighties  and early nineties, they are now being found almost everywhere across the planet. They are  among the 12 items of rubbish most often found in coastal clean-ups. (1)_____ Windblown  plastic bags are so common in Africa that a small industry has appeared: collecting bags and  using them to make hats and other items.  

What matters is what happens to them after use. Enormous numbers end up being buried or  burnt, which is an enormous waste of the oil products which have gone into their  manufacture. (2) _____ Turtles mistake them for their jellyfish food and choke on them; birds  mistake them for fish with similar consequences; dolphins have been found with plastic bags  preventing them breathing properly. 

The wildlife film-maker Rebecca Hosking was shocked by the effects of the bags on birds on  the Pacific island of Midway. She started a movement to turn her hometown into the first  community in the country to be free of plastic bags. Many local residents and shopkeepers  joined in, and the idea of getting rid of them completely soon spread to other towns and  villages. 

Although some people remain unconvinced, it does seem possible that the entire country  could eventually become plastic-bag free. Who could have imagined half-a-century ago that  our public places would one day all become cigarette-smoke free? Or that we would all be  using lead-free petrol? Who would have thought even a decade ago, come to that, that about  two-thirds of us would by now be actively involved in recycling? (3)_______ 

What is needed is a general change in consumer attitudes, towards the habit of using re-usable  shopping bags. Older people will remember how this used to be entirely normal as every  household had a 'shopping bag', a strong bag which was used to carry items bought in the  daily trip to the shops. (4) _____Today, many of us tend to drive to the supermarket once a  week and fill up the car with seven days' worth of supplies, for which plastic bags, of course,  are fantastically useful. It's a hard habit to break.

Trang 3/6 

However, there has already been a bit drop in plastic bag use. It is clear that habits are starting  to change; reusable bags are more visible than they were even two years ago. 

Many believe there should be a tax on plastic bags, and the governments of a number of  countries are considering the idea. What people have in mind is the example of Ireland, where  a tax of €0.22 was introduced on all plastic bags, the first of its kind in the world.  (5)______In addition, all the money from the new tax is used for environmental clean-up  projects. 

A. Major changes in public opinion and behaviour can certainly occur. В. On land they are everywhere, too. 

C. Worse still, billions get into the environment, especially the ocean environment,  where they become a terrible threat to wildlife. 

D. But there was a very different pattern of household shopping then: the purchase of a  much smaller number of items, on a daily basis, after a walk to small, local shops. 

E. She realised then that it was too late to do anything about this man-made disaster. 

F. This quickly brought about a quite amazing reduction of 90 per cent, from 1.2 billion  bags a year to fewer than 200,000 and an enormous increase in the use of cloth bags.

 B. should smoking be allowed D. smoking should be allowed 9. _______ in Shanghai than in many other cities in China.

 B. as satisfying one as D. the more satisfying one

Trang 4/6 

PART 2. Read the following passage and decide which answer A, B, C or D best fits each  gap. (1.0 point)

As the cost of air tickets increases, it appears that more and more families are choosing to (2)  _____their summer holidays at home. People are also becoming more (3)_____ of the harm that flying does to the environment, and see it as a way of helping to (4)_____ the planet, too. For many parents a summer with no airport queues or overcrowded resorts may seem  attractive, but the idea might well be less (5) _____ with their teenage children, who are

The answer may lie at the local sports center. Nowadays, many centers organize summer  activities aimed at young people (9)_____either on indoor or outdoor sports.

But Wolfram Graf-Rudolf, director of the Aachen Zoo, is (5)_____the same opinion,  although he feels it is now (6)_____late to put Knut out of his supposed misery. ‘The mistake  has been made.
