D. insights 

D. nevertheless 

Since the earliest times, humans have sought out ways to preserve their food whether harvested or hunted. They understood that it was unsustainable to hunt or harvest all the time. Depending on the climate, these early humans froze meat on ice or dried food in the hot sun in order to preserve it. Subsequently, they no longer had to keep moving after a meal in search for the next hunt or new land to harvest. They could store some of their food supply for later use and settle down as a group. 

Trang 3/8 

Throughout history, various methods of hot and cold preservations were employed by different civilizations. When natural climate conditions were not conducive, other means such as fire were used to dry fruits and vegetables as done in the "still houses" of the Middle Ages. For cooling, often lower than freezing temperatures were used to prolong shelf life. Underground caves proved to be effective for that purpose. Ice boxes and finally refrigeration followed. Shared by Angels of Otto Channel 

In the 1800s, the canning method was developed by a French confectioner named Nicolas Appert in response to an award. General Napoléon Bonaparte offered a prize of 12,000 francs to anyone who could devise a practical method for preserving food for his armies on the battlefield. Appert's method involved tightly sealing cooked food in glass jars with cork stoppers. Once sealed, the jars were immersed in boiling water to drive the air out. Appert's method was a success, and he won Napoléon's award. Appert believed that it was the exclusion of air that prevented food from spoiling. It was not until many years later that Louis Pasteur proved that high temperatures were actually responsible for eliminating the bacteria that caused food spoilage. Pasteur devised a method to safely store food by treating canned products at a much lower temperature than that of Appert and thereby retaining the food's taste and nutritional content. 

52. The word "prolong" in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to 

A. extract 

B. exclude 

53. Why are caves mentioned in paragraph 2? 

A. to highlight another way to dry food 

B. to explain a natural cooling process 

C. to describe a type of dwelling in the Middle Ages D. to illustrate where some food was preserved 

54. What does the author suggest about Nicolas Appert? 

A. His method was not always effective. 

B. He didn't understand the science behind his method. 

C. He was motivated by an interest in science. 

D. His goal was to advance research in bacteria. 

C. expire 

D. extend 

55. What advantage did Pasteur's preservation method have over Appert's? 

A. It maintained the nutritive quality of the food. 

B. It required no heating for preservation. 

C. It was safer and bacteria free. 

D. It was easier to store the food products. 

56. What is the main purpose of this passage?

For questions 57-62, read a magazine article about tweenagers, a word used to describe an age of children who are not yet teenagers. Choose the most suitable heading from the list (i-viii) group for each paragraph (A-F). There are TWO extra headings which you do not need to use. 


A. Tweenagers. It's one of those labels that marketing and advertising people stick onto new consumer groups to persuade them to buy more of the products that are suitable for their life-stage and their 

Trang 4/8 

life-style. In the case of tweenagers, it's the eight to twelve-year-olds who want to grow up as fast as they can, and who copy the fashions and behavior of the teenagers they can't wait to become. 

B. In the UK there are about four million children in this age group and in the last ten years this group has become a clearly separate social and economic unit. The market for children's clothes, music, mobile phones and so on in this category is estimated to be worth about £30 billion. 

C. Most of these children have lived through a period of economic wealth and, according to recent research, pocket money has risen by 32% over six years. Consequently, tweenagers are a marketer's dream. 

Shared by Angels of Otto Channel 

D. From a psychologist's point of view, up until the age of eight, a child's family is his or her most important reference point and biggest influence. From eight onwards, other influences become important particularly friends of the same age and sex, and role models from the world of entertainment and sport. 

E. Eight to twelve is a broad age range and includes various levels of maturity. There are still ten-year- olds who are secretly happier playing with dolls or toy cars than shopping for the latest fashion labels or watching soaps on television. But the pressure of friends means it's quite hard for them to follow their real interests as they want to fit in with their peer group. 

F. Before the age of eleven or twelve children have not developed the capacity for abstract thinking. This means that they receive information from the media but are not very likely to question what they see and hear. A teenager can watch something and ask questions like: "Are they just trying to sell me something?" Teenagers rebel and protest but tweenagers take it all at face value, so are much more easily persuaded.

Why money doesn't buy happiness 

A. All in all, it was probably a mistake to look for the answer to the eternal question-"Does money buy happiness?"-from people who practice what's called the dismal science. For when economists tackled the question, they started from the observation that when people put something up for sale they try to get as much for it as they can, and when people buy something, they try to pay as little for it as they can. Both sides in the transaction, the economists noticed, are therefore behaving as if they would be more satisfied (happier, dare we say) if they wound up receiving more money (the seller) or holding on to more money (the buyer). Hence, more money must be better than less, and the only way more of something can be better than less of it is if it brings you greater contentment. The economists' conclusion: the more money you have, the happier you must be.

B. Psychologists have spent decades studying the relation between wealth and happiness," writes Harvard University psychologist Daniel Gilbert in his best-selling "Stumbling on Happiness," and they have generally concluded that wealth increases human happiness when it lifts people out of abject poverty and into the middle class, but that it does little to increase happiness thereafter. C. That flies in the face of intuition, not to mention economic theory. According to standard economics, the most important commodity you can buy with additional wealth is choice. If you have $20 in your pocket, you can decide between steak and peanut butter for dinner, but if you have only $1 you'd better hope you already have a jar of jelly at home. Additional wealth also lets you satisfy additional needs and wants, and the more of those you satisfy the happier you are supposed to be. 

D. The trouble is choice is not all it's claimed to be. Studies show that people like selecting from among maybe half a dozen kinds of pasta at the grocery store but find 27 choices overwhelming, leaving them chronically on edge that they could have chosen a better one than they did. And wants, which are nice to be able to afford, have a bad habit of becoming needs (iPod, anyone?), of which an advertising and media-saturated culture create endless numbers. Satisfying needs brings less emotional well-being than satisfying wants. 

E. The nonlinear nature of how much happiness money can buy-lots more happiness when it moves you out of penury and into middle-class comfort, hardly any more when it lifts you from millionaire to decamillionaire-comes through clearly in global surveys that ask people how content they feel with their lives. In a typical survey people are asked to rank their sense of well-being or happiness on a scale of 1 to 7, where 1 means "not at all satisfied with my life" and 7 means "completely satisfied." Of the American multimillionaires who responded, the average happiness score was 5.8. Homeless people in Calcutta came in at 2.9. But before you assume that money does buy happiness after all, consider who else rated themselves around 5.8: the Inuit of northern Greenland, who do not exactly lead a life of luxury, and the cattle-herding Maasai of Kenya, whose dung huts have no electricity or running water. And proving Gilbert's point about money buying happiness only when it lifts you out of abject poverty, slum dwellers in Calcutta-one economic rung above the homeless- rate themselves at 4.6. 

F. Studies tracking changes in a population's reported level of happiness over time have also dealt a death blow to the "money buys happiness" claim. Since World War II the gross domestic product per capita has tripled in the United States. But people's sense of well-being, as measured by surveys asking some variation of "Overall, how satisfied are you with your life?", has barely budged. Japan has had an even more meteoric rise in GDP per capita since its postwar misery, but measures of national happiness have been flat, as they have also been in Western Europe during its long postwar boom, according to social psychologist Ruut Veenhoven of Erasmus University in Rotterdam. A 2004 analysis of more than 150 studies on wealth and happiness concluded that "economic indicators have glaring shortcomings" as approximations of well-being across nations, wrote Ed Diener of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and Martin E. P. Seligman of the University of Pennsylvania. "Although economic output has risen steeply over the past decades, there has been no rise in life satisfaction ... and there has been a substantial increase in depression and distrust."
