Black Widow Spider

The black widow spider's notoriety is not without foundation. However, an element of exaggeration has 

led to certain _misconception_ (0. concept) regarding its evil nature. 

Firstly, this spider is not as dangerous as it is often thought. While it is indeed one of the most venomous

such as amount of venom by __________ (1. compare) that it is unlikely to kill humans. In fact, 

__________ (2. fatal) are rare. 

Black widows bite only if they are touched or their web is threatened. Furthermore, only the adult female

widow spiders. The latter are vulnerable as the female is __________ (3. solitude) by nature, and has

Albert Einstein 

(1879 – 1955) 

Albert Einstein is (0) _one_ of the best-known scientists of the 20th century. Yet he was not a particularly 

good student. At school in Munich, he got reasonable grades in nearly (1) ________ subjects and was 

outstanding in mathematics and physics but he disliked doing (2) ________ he was told. He didn't like 

exams and (3) ________ did he like attending classes, so he (4) ________ school early. 

(5) ________ filing the entrance exam, Einstein was eventually admitted (6) ________ the Swiss Federal 

Institute of Technology in Zurich in 1896. Although he did fairly well, he was (7) ________ to get a job

Part 3: Read the passage and choose the letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to each 

of the following questions. Write your answers in the corresponding numbered boxes provided. (1 

point) 

Dolphins are one of the most intelligent species on the planet, which makes them a very interesting 

animal to scientists. In their natural habitats, dolphins use various vocalisation techniques. They whistle 

and squeak to recognize members of their pod, identify and protect their young, and call out warnings 

of danger. They also make clicking sounds used for echolocation to find food and obstacles in dark and 

murky waters. 

Amazingly, the whistling sound that the bottlenose dolphin makes has been found to have a similar 

pattern to human language. They always make conversational sounds when they greet each other. If you 

listen to dolphins' squeaks and squeals, it will sound like they are having a conversation. 

Dolphins usually use both sound and body language to communicate with each other. It is through 

gesture and body language, however, that most of their communication with humans comes. Dolphins 

can be trained to perform complicated tricks. This suggests they have a high level of intelligence and 

communication capacity. If they work for a long time with a trainer, they are able to recognize and 

understand human commands. 

A lot of dolphin communication has been studied using dolphins in captive environments. These studies 

have been criticized because some marine biologists believe that dolphins living in aquariums or research 

centres cannot be considered "normal". Even so, most believe that studying dolphin communication in 

captivity is useful for beginning to understand the complexity of dolphin communication. After all, 

dolphins are one of the most intelligent animals. Their ability to communicate is impressive and worthy 

of study. 

1. What is the passage mainly about? 

 A. Intelligent mammals in captivity B. Complex patterns in dolphin life 

 C. Dolphins' social tendencies with humans D. Communications in dolphins 

Trang 6/8

2. What are the common ways for a dolphin to communicate? 

 A. Swimming speeds B. Human voice imitation

 A. dolphins' sounds are sometimes used to greet humans 

 B. dolphins' squeals and squeaks sound like conversations to the human ear. 

 C. communication using sounds and gestures occurs between with humans. 

 D. body language and gestures are used for communication with humans. 

4. The word capacity in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to ___________. 

 A. simplicity B. ability C. probability D. productivity 

5. Why do dolphins use their communication skills with each other? 

 A. To prove that they are happy and useful in captivity 

 B. To make beautiful music and to find food 

 C. To recognize, protect and communicate with each other 

 D. To trick humans into thinking they are intelligent
