Read the following passage and circle the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.

Broad-tailed hummingbirds often nest in quaking, slender deciduous trees with smooth, gray-green bark found in the Colorado Rockies of the Western United States. After flying some 2,000 kilometres north from where they have wintered in Mexico, the hummingbirds need six weeks to build a nest, incubate their eggs, and raise the chicks. A second nest is feasible only if the first fails early in the season. Quality, not quantity, is what counts in hummingbird reproduction.

A nest on the lowest intact branch of an aspen will give a hummingbird a good view, a clear flight patch, and protection for her young. Male hummingbirds claim feeding territories in open meadows where, from late May through June, they mate with females coming to feed but take no part in nesting. Thus when the hen is away to feed, the nest is unguarded. While the smooth bark of the aspen trunk generally offers a poor grip for the claws of a hungry squirrel or weasel, aerial attacks, from a hawk, owl, or gray jay, are more likely.

The choice of where to build a nest is based not only on the branch itself but also on what hangs over it. A crooked deformity in the nest branch, a second, unusually close branch overhead, or proximity to part of a trunk bowed by a past ice storm are features that provide shelter and make for an attractive nest site. Scarcely larger than a halved golf ball, the nest is painstaking constructed of spider webs and plant down, decorated and camouflaged outside with paper-like bits of aspen bark held together with more strands of spider silk. By early  June it will hold two pea-sized eggs, which each weigh one-seventh of the mother’s weight, and in sixteen to nineteen days, two chicks.

 

Question 31: What aspect of broad-tailed hummingbird behaviour does the passage mainly discuss?

A. Mating habits    B. Selection of nest sites 

C. Caring for the young      D. Migration routes

Question 32: According to the passage, in what circumstances do hummingbirds build a second nest?

A. If there is an unusually large supply of food

B. If the nests are destroyed early in the season.

C. If the winner is unusually warm  

D. If the chicks in the first nest hatch early

Question 33: The word “counts” in the first paragraph is closest in meaning to_______.

A. numbers  B. estimates  C. estimates  D. estimates

Question 34: According to the passage, which of the following is true of the male broad- tailed hummingbird?

A. It protects the nest while the female searches for food. 

B. It is not involved in caring for the chicks.

C. It shares nesting duties equally with the female.  

D. It finds food for the female and the chicks.

Question 35. It can be inferred from the passage that the broad-tailed hummingbirds’ eggs and chicks are most vulnerable to attack by_______.

A. humans  B. insects  C. birds  D. squirrels

Question 36. Which of the following would be a good location for a broad-tailed hummingbird to build its nest?

Read the text then circle the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to show the correct answers to the following questions.

THE TRUTH BEHIND THE DA VINCI CODE

In 2006, Sony Pictures released a remarkable and intriguing film entitled The Da Vinci Code, based on the novel of the same name by Dan Brown. In the film, religious leaders and professors are in a race to discover the secrets of an organization called the Priory of Sion. The biggest secret kept by this organization is supposedly that Jesus Christ and a woman whose name is recorded in the Bible as Mary Magdalene had a child, and that their family 55 line continues to this day. In a TV interview, Dan Brown stated that, in his book, "all of the art, architecture, secret rituals, secret societies, all of that is historical fact." However, while the Priory of Sion did exist, it's nothing like the one which is so central to The Da Vinci Code.

The Priory of Sion was started in France in 1956 by a skillful liar named Pierre Plantard. Priory means religious house, and Sion was a hill in the town of Annemasse, where the Priory was started by Plantard and four of 60 his friends. At first, their group fought for housing  rights  for  local  people,  and  their  offices  were  at  Plantard's   apartment. The organization promised to benefit the weak and the oppressed, and to do good in general. However, there was a darker side to the Plantard's Priory.

Plantard actually hoped to use the Priory of Sion to claim to be a descendant of  French kings. Between the years 1961 and 1984, Plantard created the enigma of a much more powerful Priory than his insignificant organization. First, in order to give the impression that the Priory began in 1099, Plantard and his friend Philippe de Cherisey created documents, called the Secret Dossiers of Henri Lobineau, and illegally put them into the National Library of France. Next, Plantard got author Gerard de Sede to write a book in 1967 using the false documents; the book became very popular in France. This phenomenon is similar to the popularity of The Da Vinci Code, where a book based on false information or speculation becomes popular. 70

Matters were complicated when in 1969, an English actor and science-fiction writer named Henry Lincoln read Gerard de Sede's book. Lincoln did not know of Plantard and his schemes, and may have been a victim of the hoax. He seemed to believe what he read, and jumped to even more wild conclusions, which he published in his 1982 book, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. He and his co-authors declared as fact that the Priory started in 1099; that its leaders included Leonardo Da Vinci, Isaac Newton, and Victor Hugo; that the Priory protects the descendants of Jesus 75 Christ and Mary Magdalene; and that these descendants ruled France from A.D. 447 to 751. All this was based on reading a novel based on the false facts from documents which were a hoax. Most modern historians do not consider Lincoln's book to be a serious work of history.

How can we be so sure that Plantard created this hoax? Well, the best witness to a crime is the criminal himself. Over 100 hundred letters between Plantard, de Cherisey, and de Sede, discovered by researcher Jean-Luc 80 Chaumeil, show clearly that they were trying to pull an elaborate hoax. In fact, in the 1990s, Plantard got in trouble with the law, and his house was searched. Within it were found many false documents, most harmless, some of which said he was the true king of France. As a final embarrassment, Plantard had to swear in a court of law that the enigma of the Priory of Sion was the work of his imagination.

 

Question 41. What does the author hope to show in this passage?

A. Dan Brown knew his book wasn't based on fact.

B. The Da Vinci Code is based on fact.

C. Sony's movie The Da Vinci Code is better than Dan Brown's book.

D. The Priory of Sion was a hoax.

Question 42. What is true about the real Priory of Sion?

A. It was started in 1956 by Pierre Plantard.

B. It is connected to the leaders of France.

C. It has a secret about Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. 

D. Its leader used to be Leonardo Da Vinci.

Question 43. Why did Plantard put documents in the National Library of France?

A. He wanted Henry Lincoln to find them there.

B. He believed that he knew the truth and wanted to tell everyone.

C. He wanted people to believe that the Priory began in 1099.

D. So that Gerard de Sede's book would sell more copies.

Question 44. According to the passage, who did NOT know about the creation of the Priory of Sion hoax?

A. Gerard de Sede B. Philippe de Cherisey C. Pierre Plantard D. Henry Lincoln

Question 45. Which claim was NOT made in The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail?

B. The Priory of Sion protects the descendants of Jesus Christ.

C. Pierre Plantard created the Secret Dossiers of Henri Lobineau.

Read the following passage and circle the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct word for each of the blanks.

When you read something in a foreign language, you frequently come across words you do not fully understand. Sometimes you (46)_______ the meaning in a dictionary and sometimes you guess. The strategy you adopt depends very much upon the degree of accuracy you require and the time at your disposal.

If you are the sort of person who tends to turn to the dictionary frequently, it is (47)_______ remembering that every dictionary has  its  limitations. Each definition is only an approximation and one builds up an accurate picture of the meaning of a word only after meeting it in a (48)_______ of contexts. It is also important to recognize the  special dangers of dictionaries that translate from English into your native language and vice versa. If you must use a dictionary, it is usually far safer to consult an English-English dictionary

In most exams you are not permitted to use a dictionary. (49)_______ you are allowed to use one, it is very time-consuming to look up words, and time in exams is usually limited. You are, therefore, forced to guess the meaning of unfamiliar words.

When you come across unknown words in an exam text, it is very easy to panic. However, if you develop efficient techniques for guessing the meaning, you will overcome a number of possible problems and help yourself to understand far more of the text than you at first thought likely.

Two strategies which may help you guess the meaning of a word are: using contextual clues, both within the sentence and outside, and making use of clues (50)_______ from the formation of the word.

 

Question 46. A. control  B. inspect  C. check  D. examine

Question 47. A. valuable  B. worth  C. essential  D. vital

Question 48. A. variation  B. multiple  C. diversity  D. variety

Question 49. A. Even if  B. Provided  C. Although  D. In case

Broad-tailed hummingbirds often nest in quaking, slender deciduous trees with smooth, gray-green bark found in the Colorado Rockies of the Western United States. After flying some 2,000 kilometres north from where they have wintered in Mexico, the hummingbirds need six weeks to

build a nest, incubate their eggs, and raise the chicks. A second nest is feasible only if the first fails early in the season. Quality, not quantity, is what counts in hummingbird reproduction.

A nest on the lowest intact branch of an aspen will give a hummingbird a good view, a clear flight patch, and protection for her young. Male hummingbirds claim feeding territories in open meadows where, from late May through June, they mate with females coming to feed but take no part in nesting. Thus when the hen is away to feed, the nest is unguarded. While the smooth bark of the aspen trunk generally offers a poor grip for the claws of a hungry squirrel or weasel, aerial attacks, from a hawk, owl, or gray jay, are more likely.

The choice of where to build a nest is based not only on the branch itself but also on what hangs over it. A crooked deformity in the nest branch, a second, unusually close branch overhead, or proximity to part of a trunk bowed by a past ice storm are features that provide shelter and make for an attractive nest site. Scarcely larger than a halved golf ball, the nest is painstaking constructed of spider webs and plant down, decorated and camouflaged outside with paper-like bits of aspen bark held together with more strands of spider silk. By early  June it will hold two pea-sized eggs, which each weigh one-seventh of the mother’s weight, and in sixteen to nineteen days, two chicks.

THE TRUTH BEHIND THE DA VINCI CODE

© Đỗ Bình – THPT Liễn Sơn, Lập Thạch, Vĩnh Phúc – www.violet.vn/quocbinh72 Trang 1/5


In 2006, Sony Pictures released a remarkable and intriguing film entitled The Da Vinci Code, based on the novel of the same name by Dan Brown. In the film, religious leaders and professors are in a race to discover the secrets of an organization called the Priory of Sion. The biggest secret kept by this organization is supposedly that Jesus Christ and a woman whose name is recorded in the Bible as Mary Magdalene had a child, and that their family 55 line continues to this day. In a TV interview, Dan Brown stated that, in his book, "all of the art, architecture, secret rituals, secret societies, all of that is historical fact." However, while the Priory of Sion did exist, it's nothing like the one which is so central to The Da Vinci Code.

The Priory of Sion was started in France in 1956 by a skillful liar named Pierre Plantard. Priory means religious house, and Sion was a hill in the town of Annemasse, where the Priory was started by Plantard and four of 60 his friends. At first, their group fought for housing  rights  for  local  people,  and  their  offices  were  at  Plantard's   apartment. The organization promised to benefit the weak and the oppressed, and to do good in general. However, there was a darker side to the Plantard's Priory.

Plantard actually hoped to use the Priory of Sion to claim to be a descendant of  French kings. Between the years 1961 and 1984, Plantard created the enigma of a much more powerful Priory than his insignificant organization. First, in order to give the impression that the Priory began in 1099, Plantard and his friend Philippe de Cherisey created documents, called the Secret Dossiers of Henri Lobineau, and illegally put them into the National Library of France. Next, Plantard got author Gerard de Sede to write a book in 1967 using the false documents; the book became very popular in France. This phenomenon is similar to the popularity of The Da Vinci Code, where a book based on false information or speculation becomes popular. 70

Matters were complicated when in 1969, an English actor and science-fiction writer named Henry Lincoln read Gerard de Sede's book. Lincoln did not know of Plantard and his schemes, and may have been a victim of the hoax. He seemed to believe what he read, and jumped to even more wild conclusions, which he published in his 1982 book, The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. He and his co-authors declared as fact that the Priory started in 1099; that its leaders included Leonardo Da Vinci, Isaac Newton, and Victor Hugo; that the Priory protects the descendants of Jesus 75 Christ and Mary Magdalene; and that these descendants ruled France from A.D. 447 to 751. All this was based on reading a novel based on the false facts from documents which were a hoax. Most modern historians do not consider Lincoln's book to be a serious work of history.

How can we be so sure that Plantard created this hoax? Well, the best witness to a crime is the criminal himself. Over 100 hundred letters between Plantard, de Cherisey, and de Sede, discovered by researcher Jean-Luc 80 Chaumeil, show clearly that they were trying to pull an elaborate hoax. In fact, in the 1990s, Plantard got in trouble with the law, and his house was searched. Within it were found many false documents, most harmless, some of which said he was the true king of France. As a final embarrassment, Plantard had to swear in a court of law that the enigma of the Priory of Sion was the work of his imagination.
