Chess must be one of the oldest games in the world. An Arab traveller in India in the year 900
wrote that it was played “long, long ago”. Chess was probably invented in India, and it has been
played everywhere from Japan to Europe since 1400. The name “chess” is interesting. When one
player is attacking the other’s king, he says in English, “check”. When the king has been caught
and cannot move anywhere, he says “check mate”. These words come from Perisan. “Shah mat”
means “the king is dead”. That is the game is over, and one player has won.
Such an old game changes very slowly. The rules have not always been the same as they are
now. For example, at one time the queen could only move one square at a time. Now she is the
strongest piece on the board. It would be interesting to know why this has happened! Chess takes
time and thought, but it is a game for all kinds of people. You don’t have to be a champion in order
to enjoy it. It is not always played by two people sitting at the same table. The first time of the
Americans beat the Russians was in a match played by radio. Some of the chess masters are able to
play many people at the same time. The record was when one man played 400 games! It is said that
some people play chess by post. This must make chess the slowest game in the world.

46.Which of following is known to be true?


A. Chess is an old Indian travelling game. B. Chess is the oldest game in the world.
C. Chess was played in India long before 900 D. Chess was played in Japan and Europe before
1400
47.One player has won the game when
A. he attacks the other player’s king B. he says some Persian words
C. he says “check” to the other player. D. the other player’s king cannot move anywhere.
48.Which of the following will you hear when one player has won the game?
A. “Shah mat” B. “Check mate” C. “The king is dead” D. “Check”
49.Which of the following is NOT correct ?
A. Only two people can play chess sitting at the same table B. All kinds of people can play chess
C. Some people write each other playing chess D. The Russians lost the game played by radio.
50. According to the old rules of the game
A. the queen was the strongest piece on the board B. the king had to be attacked all the time
C. the queen could move no more than one square at a time D. the king could not move
anywhere.

Social parasitism involves one species relying on another to raise its young. Among vertebrates,
the best known social parasites are such birds as cuckoos and cowbirds; the female lays an egg in a
nest belonging to another species and leaves it for the host to rear.
The dulotic species of ants, however, are the supreme social parasites. Consider, for example, the
(5) unusual behavior of ants belonging to the genus Polyergus. All species of this ant have lost the
ability to care for themselves. The workers do not forage for food. feed their brood or queen, or
even dean their own nest. To compensate for these deficits, Polyergus has become specialized at
obtaining workers from the related genus Formica to do these chores.
In a raid, several thousand Polyergus workers will travel up to 500 feet in search of a
Formica (10) nest, penetrate it, drive off the queen and tier workers, capture the pupal brood, and
transport it back to their nest. The captured brood is then reared by the resident Formica workers
until the developing pupae emerge to add to the Formica population, which maintains the mixed-
species nest The Formica workers forage for food and give it to colony members of both species.
They also remove wastes and excavate new chambers as the population increases.
(15) The true extent of the Polyergus ants' dependence on the Formica becomes apparent when the
worker population grows too large for the existing nest. Formica scouts locate a new nesting site,
return to the mixed-species colony, and recruit additional Formica nest mates During a period that
may last seven days, the Formica workers carry to the new nest all the Polyergus eggs, larvae, and
pupae, every Polyergus adult, and even the Polyergus queen.
(20) Of the approximately 8,000 species of ants in the world, all 5 species of Polyergus and some
200 species in other genera have evolved some degree of parasitic relationship with other ants.

51. Which of the following statements best represents the main idea of the passage?
A. Ants belonging to the genus Formica are incapable of performing certain tasks.
B. The genus Polyergus is quite similar to the genus Formica.
C. Ants belonging to the genus Polyergus have an unusual relationship with ants belonging to the
genus Formica.
D. Polyergus ants frequently leave their nests to build new colonies.
52. The word "raise" in line 1 is closest in meaning to
A. rear B. lift C. collect D. increase
53. The author mentions cuckoos and cowbirds in line 2 because they
A. share their nests with each other B are closely related species
C. raise the young of other birds D. are social parasites
54. The word "it" in line 3 refers to
A. species B. nest C .egg D. female
55. What does the author mean by stating that “The dulotic species of ants ... are die supreme
social parasites" (line 4) ?
A. The Polyergus are more highly developed than die Formica.
B. The Formica have developed specialized roles.
C. The Polyergus are heavily dependent on the Formica.
D. The Formica do not reproduce rapidly enough to care for themselves
56. Which of the following is a task that an ant of the genus Polyergus might do?
A. Look for food B. Raid another nest C. Care for the young D. Clean its own
nest
57. The word "excavate" in line 14 is closest in meaning to
A. find B. clean C. repair D. dig
58. The word "recrute" in line 17 is closest in meaning to
A. create B. enlist C. endure D. capture
59. What happens when a mixed colony of Polyergus and Formica ants becomes too large?
A. The Polyergus workers enlarge the existing nest.
B. The captured Formica workers return to their original nest.
C. The Polyergus and the Formica build separate nests.
D. The Polyergus and the Formica move to a new nest.
60. According to the information in the passage, all of the following terms refer to ants belonging
to the genus Formica EXCEPT the
A. dulotic species of ants (line 4) B. captured brood (line 11)
C. developing pupae (line 11-12) D. worker population (line 16)

Galaxies are not evenly distributed throughout the universe. A few are found alone,
but almost all are
grouped in formations termed galactic clusters. These formations should not be
confused with stellar
clusters, globular clusters of stars that exist within a galaxy. The size of
galactic clusters varies
enormously, with some clusters containing only a dozen or so members and others
containing as many as
10,000. Moreover, galactic clusters themselves are part of larger clusters of
clusters, termed
superclusters. It is surmised that even clusters of superclusters are possible.
Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is part of a galactic cluster called the Local Group,
which has twenty
members and is typical in terms of the types of galaxies it contains. There are three
large spiral galaxies:
Andromeda, the largest galaxy in the group; the Milky Way, the second-largest
galaxy; and the Trianglum
Spiral, the third largest. There are also four medium-sized spiral galaxies,
including the Large Cloud of
Magellan and the Small Cloud of Magellan. There are four regular elliptical galaxies;
the remainders are
dwarf ellipticals. Other than our own galaxy, only Andromeda and the Clouds of
Magellan can be seen
with the naked eye, and the Clouds are visible only from the Southern Hemisphere.
In the vicinity of the Local Group are several clusters, each containing around
twelve members. The
nearest cluster rich in members is the Virgo Cluster, which contains thousands of
galaxies of all types.
Like most large clusters, it emits X-rays. The Local Group, the small neighboring
clusters, and the Virgo
Cluster form part of a much larger cluster of clusters – the Local Supercluster.
The existence of galactic clusters presented a riddle to scientists for many years – the
“missing mass”
problem. Clusters are presumably held together by the gravity generated by
their members. However,
measurements showed that the galaxies did not have enough mass to explain their
apparent stability. Why
didn’t these clusters disintegrate? It is now thought that galaxies contain great
amounts of “dark matter”,
which cannot be directly observed but which generates gravitational pull.
This matter includes gas, dust, burnt-out stars, and even black holes.

For a long time, amphibians were confused with reptiles. Like reptiles, they
have three-chambered
hearts and are cold-blooded. Some amphibians, such as salamanders, are even
shaped like lizards.
However, unlike reptiles, amphibians never have claws on their toes or scales
on their bodies.
Furthermore, the eggs of amphibians lack shells, so they must be laid in water or in
moist places.
Amphibians were the first creatures to spend sizable amounts of their lives on land.
The larvae of most
amphibians, such as frog tadpoles, are born with gills and live in water. However,
their gills disappear as
they develop lungs. Most retain the ability to breathe through the moist surface of
their skin. This comes
in handy when they hibernate in the bottom mud of lakes and ponds during the
coldest months. They take
in the small amount of oxygen they need through their skin. Some amphibians
undergo what is known as
a “double metamorphosis”, changing not only from gill breathers to lung
breathers but also from
vegetarians to insectivores.
Although the amphibian class is rather small in number of species, it shows great
diversity. There are
three major types. The caecilians of the tropics are long, legless, burrowing
creatures. Caudate
amphibians, such as newts and salamanders, mostly have long tails and stubby legs.
Salientians, which
include both frogs and toads, are tailless as adults and have powerful hind legs.
Toads differ from frogs
primarily in that they have dry, warty skin.

Câu 63: The author’s main purpose in writing the passage is to _____.
A. define and describe amphibians
B. contrast different types of amphibians
C. trace the development of amphibians from larvae to adults
D. explain how amphibians differ from other creatures
Câu 64: According to the passage, which of the following is NOT a characteristic of
amphibians?
A. They have three-chambered hearts. B. They lay eggs without shells.
C. They have claws on their toes. D. They are cold-blooded.
Câu 65: The term ‘scales’ is closest to which of the following in meaning?
A. Devices used to measure weight.
B. Plates covering the bodies of certain animals.
C. Sounds made by various animals.
D. Proportions between different sets of dimensions.
Câu 66: According to the passage, the term ‘double metamorphosis’ refers to the
fact that amphibians
_____.
A. first breathe through their gills, then through their lungs, then through their skin
B. change both the shape of their bodies and the way in which they lay eggs
C. first live in the water, then on land, then in mud in the bottom of ponds and lakes
D. change both their methods of breathing and their feeding habits
Câu 67: It can be inferred from the passage that amphibians’ ability to breathe
through their skin is
especially useful during the _____.
A. summer B. fall C. winter D. spring
Câu 68: All of the following are identified in the passage as amphibians EXCEPT
_____.
A. newts B. salamanders C. caecilians D. lizards
Câu 69: The word ‘stubby’ is closest in meaning to _____.
A. long and thin B. thick and short C. undeveloped D. powerful
Câu 70: The word ‘they’ refers to _____.
A. toads B. tails C. adults D. frogs
