The largest sand desert in the world is (0) access to the North of Africa from the Red Sea in the east to the Atlantic in the west. The Sahara is almost the size of China or America, with the unbelievable dimensions of nearly ten million square kilometres. It has one of the harsher climates on the planet, with the prevailing northeasterly winds causing frequent sand storms, and temperatures what soar during the day and drop to below freezing at night.  

Yet, concealed inside the huge sand dunes and dust are residual minerals from thousands of years ago when the region was an agriculture area, where plants thrived and animals roamed freely. But these minerals continue to support life today, though first they have to traveling amazing distances. Wafted up into the stratosphere by the strong winds, the minerals are propelled across the Atlantic, where they mix and fall with the rain over the Amazon rainforest, providing necessarily nutrients to this bio-diverse ecosystem.

Part 1 (0.6 M) 

Read the following passage and choose the answer (A, B, C or D) which you think fits best according to the article. Write your answers in the numbered boxes. 

Too young to be famous? 

The machine that is celebrity culture has given us the meteoric rise and fall of the child actor, with plenty of cautionary tales to point to and ask if something should have been done to prevent them. Recently, the Chinese government took the extreme and unprecedented measure of banning the children of celebrities from appearing in any type of reality TV programming, in an effort to prevent the manufacturing of child stars. It would appear that perhaps limiting the exposure a child has to fame serves to protect and ensure a solid, stable upbringing.  

The pressure of fame is undoubtedly onerous, even for adults, who, despite growing up out of the spotlight, sometimes buckle under the stress of stardom they achieved later in life and exhibit all manner of behavioural disorders after their stardom has waned. The same can be said of child actors, but the effect is seemingly multiplied by the fact that, if achieving stardom as children, their view of reality is possibly warped and they may never even have the chance to acquire the necessary coping skills. But given that some child actors in fact, most - can make a go of their careers into adulthood, are children really so incapable of handling such pressure or is there actually no problem at all?  

Banning children from acting has an element of common sense to it, but imagine, if you will, television programmes, films and so forth absent of children. As this sort of media is supposed to reflect real life, it would seem surreal if there were no children in these stories, as if children had ceased to exist altogether. While the Chinese government’s move to limit the exposure of children may seem well intentioned, at least on the surface, it is not entirely Trang 4/10

realistic to say that children are not allowed to appear on the small or big screen. Of course, they are applying it to one particular media - that of reality TV; nonetheless, is such a ban sensible for any type of media? 

Upon closer examination of the phenomenon of the child star, we see examples both of success and failure. How many of each do we have? Is there a disproportionately high amount of failure in the lives of child actors if we look at the statistics and compare their problems with those of ordinary people? We see a child star fail and we immediately blame fame, but what about the success stories of other child actors such as Jodie Foster, Daniel Radcliffe and Leonardo DiCaprio, all of whom got their start as very young children? Are we to credit fame for their success in the same way we blame it for others’ failures? 

In the case of the latter, these are the stars we know about, as they went on to achieve long-lasting fame, even top acting awards. Child stars are not always destined to eternally seek the limelight, however, so there are many cases of success stories that people often don’t know about. Peter Ostrum, who played Charlie Bucket in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, went on to pursue a doctorate in veterinary medicine. Shirley Temple, leading box-office star in the 1930s from the age of seven, became a politician and the first female US ambassador. Polish child stars and identical twin brothers Lech and Jarosław Kaczynski gave up acting and were respectively elected as president and prime minister of Poland, positions they held at the same time. 

Invariably, though, it’s the catastrophic demise that we hear about, not just of child actors, of course, but when it does happen to them, we feel a mixture of sorrow and disbelief. To date, there is little statistical evidence to support the claim that fame and celebrity culture ruin the lives of child actors; the only proof we have is what we perceive to be true. Protections are in place, to an extent, to help ensure that children have as normal an upbringing as possible. California, for example, has enacted laws which mandate that children must continue with their educational studies exactly as they would if they weren’t in films, even going so far as to require teachers on set if need be. In this vein, ensuring support for child actors may need to go further than the broad restrictions exercised by China. 

46. What can be said about the measure taken by the Chinese as regards child stars? A. It is a view fully endorsed by the author.  

B. It will prevent the phenomenon of child stars.  

C. It will prohibit children from acting in films.  

D. It’s something they’ve never done before.  

47. In the second paragraph, the author implies that children ______. 

A. are better equipped to handle fame than adults  

B. never learn coping skills when they are famous young 

C. may or may not suffer harmful effects of fame 

D. are destined to be abnormal adults if they are famous young 

48. How does the author view the government ban in the third paragraph?  A. He is not certain it was born of good intentions.  

B. He agrees with the implementation of the ban.  

C. He thinks it is useless in the case of reality TV.  

D. He believes the intention is to control the media. 

49. In the fourth paragraph, the author suggests that ______. 

A. fame is to blame for the problems of child stars  

B. fame is unlikely to have a role in the failure of a star 

C. the fame of some stars shows it has no harmful effect 

D. the failure of certain stars means that fame is harmful 

50. The author presents the examples in the fifth paragraph to demonstrate that ______. A. child actors are capable of achieving anything they want 

Trang 5/10

B. fame can repel some from a long acting career 

C. a more exhaustive study of the subject is necessary to evaluate it 

D. success can open the door to other positions in life  

51. The author concludes by saying that ______. 

A. nothing can protect a child from the dangers of fame  

B. taking measures to help children cope with fame is worth considering 

C. our belief in the dangers of fame is greater than the reality 

D. children should be educated in how to deal with fame

Part 2 (0.9 M) 

You are going to read an article about a medical myth. For questions 52-60, choose from the sections of the article (A-D). The sections may be chosen more than once. Write your answers in the numbered boxes. 

Which section mentions the following 

52. a theory as to why people believe the myth? 

53. a recognition that it is difficult to discover the origins of the myth? 

54. an explanation of why the brain uses a lot of our reserves? 

55. an example of how much brain activity there is? 

56. that the brain is always functioning? 

57. a reduction in brain cells is normal? 

58. an opinion that intellectual and bodily performance are underused? 

59. a long-lasting myth that people are using only 10% of their brain? 

60. the possibility of improving our brains one day? 


It’s an appealing idea that we would be more intelligent or creative if we used all of our brain power. Unfortunately, Martin Dobbie has some bad news. 

A. It is incredible just how many medical myths there are, but none more so than about the brain. An enduring myth is that only ten percent of our brain is being used, and that if we could just exploit more of it, we would be that much more intelligent, creative or successful at whatever we applied ourselves to. Regrettably, although it might make people strive to do better, it is inaccurate and untrue. If we ask the most obvious question first - 10% of what? - it can be seen that the myth starts to fall apart immediately. Neuroscientists use magnetic resonance imaging when they scan someone, to see which parts of the brain become active when they are asked to do or think about something. They have observed that even simple activities, such as clenching or unclenching the hand or speaking, involves activity in a lot more than ten percent of the brain. Even when a person is relaxed and not focusing on anything in particular, the brain is active. After all, it has to control the normal bodily functions, like breathing, heart rate, send signals to the eyes, and so on. The body is never really at rest, however relaxed a person might be feeling. 

B. Even if the myth refers to only using ten percent of brain cells, it still does not stand up to scrutiny. If brain cells are not being used, they either deteriorate and die off or they are assimilated into other nearby areas of the brain. Brain cells do not just stay in the brain doing nothing, because they are too precious for that. According to cognitive neuroscientist, Sergio Della Sala, our brains are actually a massive burden on our reserves; keeping brain tissue alive devours twenty percent of the oxygen we breathe. He further adds that although nature might sometimes have unusual designs, it would be untenable to develop a brain that is ten times the Trang 6/10

size we need, when its huge dimensions are so necessary to our survival. And yet despite these facts, millions of people still believe that we only use ten percent of our brains in our daily lives. 

C. But it must be asked how a myth with no biological or physiological foundation has become so widely believed. It is difficult to discover the origins of the rumour, although the American psychologist and philosopher, William James, wrote in 1908 in his book, The Energies of Men, that we are making use of only a small part of our possible mental and physical resources. Despite being optimistic that people would eventually use more, he did not mention brain size or a precise percentage. He also did not refer to a quantity of brain cells, yet sources cite Albert Einstein as the first to propound the theory. The staff of the Albert Einstein archives has found no record of this, despite extensive searching, so this would appear to be yet another myth.  

D. One possible reason for the misapprehension could be that nine out of ten of the cells in the brain are the glial cells. These are what has been termed support cells, the white matter that sustains the remaining cells, the neurons, the grey matter that actually does the thinking. However, these are completely different types of cells that cannot suddenly become neurons, providing additional brain power. Of course, if we are determined to learn new things, then we can do so, and there is mounting evidence in the field of neuroplasticity that demonstrates how this changes our brain. This is not, though, using a new part of the brain. All that happens is that we form new connections between nerve cells or lose old connections that are no longer needed. One amazing thing about this myth is when people are told it is not true, they are truly disappointed. Perhaps the ten percent is so fascinating due to how low a figure it is. It offers the prospect of substantial advancement in the future, as everyone wants to improve. Unfortunately, there is no hibernating part of our brain waiting for us to wake up and start using it.
