An eye for detail 

Artist Susan Shepherd is best known for her flower paintings, and the large garden that surrounds her house is the source of many of her subjects. It is full of her favourite flowers, most especially varieties of tulips and poppies. Some of the plants are unruly and seed themselves all over the garden. There is a harmony of colour, shape and structure in the two 

Trang 3/7 - Mã đề thi 301

long flower borders that line the paved path which crosses the garden from east to west. Much of this is due to the previous owners who were keen gardeners, and who left plants that appealed to Susan. She also inherited the gardener, Danny. ‘In fact, it was really his garden,’ she says. ‘We got on very well. At first he would say, ‘Oh, it’s not worth it’ to some of the things I wanted to paint them, he recognized what I had in mind.’ 

Susan prefers to focus on detailed studies of individual plants rather than on the garden as a whole, though she will occasionally paint a group of plants where they are. More usually, she picks them and then takes them up to her studio. ‘I don’t set the whole thing up at once,’ she says. ‘I take one flower out and paint it, which might take a few days, and then I bring in another one and build up the painting that way. Sometimes it takes a couple of years to finish.’ 

Her busiest time of year is spring and early summer, when the tulips are out, followed by the poppies. ‘They all come out together, and you’re so busy,’ she says. But the gradual decaying process is also part of the fascination for her. With tulips, for example, ‘you bring them in and put them in water, then leave them for perhaps a day and they each form themselves into different shapes. They open out and are fantastic. When you first put them in a vase, you think they are boring, but they change all the time with twists and turns.’ 

Susan has always been interested in plants: ‘I did botany at school and used to collect wild flowers from all around the countryside,’ she says. ‘I wasn’t particularly interested in gardening then; in fact, I didn’t like garden flowers, I thought they looked like the ones made of silk or plastic that were sold in some florists’ shops – to me, the only real ones were wild. I was intrigued by the way they managed to flower in really awkward places, like cracks in rocks or on cliff tops.’ Nowadays, the garden owes much to plants that originated in far-off lands, though they seem as much at home in her garden as they did in China or the Himalayas. She has a come-what-may attitude to the garden, rather like an affectionate aunt who is quite happy for children to run about undisciplined as long as they don’t do any serious damage. 

With two forthcoming exhibitions to prepare for, and a ready supply of subject material at her back door, finding time to work in the garden has been difficult recently. She now employs an extra gardener but, despite the need to paint, she knows that, to maintain her connection with her subject matter, ‘you have to get your hands dirty’.

The biologist’s role in society as well as his moral and ethical responsibility in the discovery and development of new ideas has led to a reassessment of his social and scientific value systems. A scientist can no longer ignore the consequence of his discoveries; he is as concerned with the possible misuses of his findings as he is with the basic research in which he is involved. This emerging social and political role of the biologist and all other scientists requires a weighing of values that cannot be done with the accuracy or the objectivity of a laboratory balance. As a member of society, it is necessary for a biologist now to redefine his social obligations and his functions, particularly in the realm of making judgments about such ethical problems as man’s control of his environment or his manipulation of genes to direct further evolutionary development. 

As a result of recent discoveries concerning hereditary mechanisms, genetic engineering, by which human traits are made to order, may soon be a reality. As desirable as it may seem to be, such an accomplishment would entail many value judgments. Who would decide, for example, which traits should be selected for change? In cases of genetic

deficiencies and disease, the desirability of the change is obvious, but the possibilities for social misuse are so numerous that they may far outweigh the benefits. Probably the greatest biological problem of the future, as it is of the present, will be to find ways to curb environmental pollution without interfering with man’s constant effort to improve the quality of his life. Many scientists believe that underlying the spectre of pollution is the problem of surplus human population. A rise in population necessitates an increase in the operations of modern industry, the waste products of which increase the pollution of the air, water, and soil. The question of how many people the resources of the Earth can support is one of critical importance. 

Although the solutions to these and many other problems are yet to be found, they do indicate the need for biologists to work with social scientists and other members of society in order to determine the requirements necessary for maintaining a healthy and productive planet. For although many of man’s present and future problems may be seen to be essentially social, political, or economic in nature, they have biological ramifications that could affect the very existence of life itself. 

Question 61: According to the passage, a modern scientist should be more concerned about ______. 

A. the consequences of his discoveries B. his basic research 

C. other scientists D. the development of new ideas Question 62: The word “it” in paragraph 2 refers to ______. 

A. hereditary mechanism B. a reality 

C. genetic engineering D. an accomplishment 

Question 63: It is implied in the passage that genetic engineering ______. A. will change all human traits B. may do us more harm than good C. is the most desirable for life D. is no longer desirable Question 64: The word “they” in paragraph 2 refers to ______. 

A. discoveries concerning hereditary mechanisms 

B. cases of genetic deficiencies 

C. effects of genetic engineering misuse 

D. possibilities for genetic deficiencies 

Question 65: What is probably the most important biological problem mentioned in the passage? 

A. social and economic deficiencies B. manipulation of genes C. genetic engineering misuse D. environmental pollution Question 66: The word “underlying” in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to ______. A. causing B. noticing C. depriving D. finding Question 67: The word “which” in paragraph 3 refers to ______. 

A. the waste products dumped into our environment 

B. activities of an overpopulated society’s industry 

C. activities of surplus human population 

D. serious environmental pollution 

Question 68: According to the passage, to save our planet, biologists should work ______. A. on social and political purposes B. harder and harder 

C. accurately and objectively D. with other social scientists Question 69: The word “ramifications” in paragraph 4 is closest in meaning to ______. A. useful experiments B. harmful consequences 

Trang 6/7 - Mã đề thi 301

A. To urge biologists to solve the problem of the surplus human population. B. To emphasize the biologist’s role in solving the world’s problems. 

C. To advise biologists to carry out extensive research into genetic engineering. D. To conduct a survey of the biologist’s role in society.
