Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct

answer to each of the questions.

Animals that produce large amounts of offspring depend upon the sheer size of the litter for the

perpetuation of their species. The young mature very quickly and are not educated, as the parents are usually

involved with obtaining their own food and with reproduction. Should some of the offspring become

endangered, the parent will not interfere, because it is not expected that all the young survive, which is the

reason for a large litter. One animal that produces large litters is the hamster. A female hamster is able to bear

young when she is six weeks to two months old. The gestation period is about 16 days.

Although an average litter size is from five to ten, hamsters commonly have as few as three or as many as a

dozen offspring at a time. Mothers will sometimes eat their own young, particularly when the number of

offspring is large. Females may produce litters up to an age of about 15 months at monthly intervals. The blind,

hairless young begin to grow fur in two to three days. Their eyes open after about two weeks. After ten days

they begin eating solid food, though the mother will continue to nurse them for about two more weeks. In

captivity, a typical hamster may live for two to three years.

Question 36: The gestation period for hamsters is about __________.

A. nine months B. one month C. 16 days D. six weeks

Question 37: Female hamsters will sometimes eat their young for what reason?

A. Hunger B. Because of a large number of offspring

C. Deformed babies D. The young mature too quickly

Question 38: Female hamsters may reproduce as young as __________.

A. six weeks old B. six months old C. 15 months old D. two weeks old

Question 39: The word “perpetuation” in the passage is closest in meaning to __________.

A. extinction B. annihilation C. variation D. continuation

Question 40: What is the tone of the passage?

A. Argumentative B. Biased C. Informative D. Farcical

Question 41: Why would an animal parent not be able to care for its litter?

A. It is busy reproducing and food gathering. B. It is busy educating the litter.

C. It interferes with the litter. D. It is busy playing.

Question 42: Which of the following is NOT a reason for a large litter?

A. The young are not expected to live. B. The young are educated.

C. The parents are too busy to protect them. D. The young mature quickly.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct

answer to each of the questions.

For 150 years scientists have tried to determine the solar constant, the amount of solar energy that

reaches the Earth. Yet, even in the most cloud-free regions of the planet, the solar constant cannot be measured

precisely. Gas molecules and dust particles in the atmosphere absorb and scatter sunlight and prevent some

wavelengths of the light from ever reaching the ground.

With the advent of satellites, however, scientists have finally been able to measure the Sun’s output

without being impeded by the Earth’s atmosphere. Solar Max, a satellite from the National Aeronautics and

Space Administration (NASA), has been measuring the Sun’s output since February 1980. Although a

Trang 4/4

malfunction in the satellite’s control system limited its observation for a few years, the satellite was repaired in

orbit by astronauts from the space shuttle in 1984. Max’s observations indicate that the solar constant is not

really constant after all.

The satellite’s instruments have detected frequent, small variations in the Sun’s energy output, generally

amounting to no more than 0.05 percent of the Sun’s mean energy output and lasting from a few days to a few

weeks. Scientists believe these fluctuations coincide with the appearance and disappearance of large groups of

sunspots on the Sun’s disk. Sunspots are relatively dark regions on the Sun’s surface that have strong magnetic

fields and a temperature about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than the rest of the Sun’s surface. Particularly

large fluctuations in the solar constant have coincided with sightings of large sunspot groups. In 1980, for

example, Solar Max’s instruments registered a 0.3 percent drop in the solar energy reaching the Earth. At that

time a sunspot group covered about 0.6 percent of the solar disk, an area 20 times larger than the Earth’s surface.

Long-term variations in the solar constant are more difficult to determine. Although Solar Max’s data have

indicated a slow and steady decline in the Sun’s output, some scientists have thought that the satellite’s aging

detectors might have become less sensitive over the years, thus falsely indicating a drop in the solar constant.

This possibility was dismissed, however, by comparing Solar Max’s observations with data from a similar

instrument operating on NASA’s Nimbus 7 weather satellite since 1978.

Question 43: What does this passage mainly discuss?

A. The launching of a weather satellite

B. The components of the Earth’s atmosphere

C. The measurement of variations in the solar constant

D. The interaction of sunlight and air pollution

Question 44: Why does the author mention “gas” and “dust” in paragraph 1?

A. They magnify the solar constant.

B. They are found in varying concentrations.

C. Scientific equipment is ruined by gas and dust.

D. They interfere with accurate measurement of the solar constant.

Question 45: Why is it not possible to measure the solar constant accurately without a satellite?

A. The Earth is too far from the Sun.

B. Some areas on Earth receive more solar energy than others.

C. There is not enough sunlight during the day.

D. The Earth’s atmosphere interferes with the sunlight.

Question 46: The word “scatter” in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to __________.

A. emit B. disperse C. capture D. transform

Question 47: According to the passage, scientists believe variations in the solar constant are related to

_________.

A. sunspot activity B. unusual weather patterns

C. increased levels of dust D. fluctuations in the Earth’s temperature

Question 48: Why did scientists think that Solar Max might be giving unreliable information?

A. Solar Max did not work for the first few years.

B. The space shuttle could not fix Solar Max’s instruments.

C. Solar Max’s instruments were getting old.

D. Nimbus 7 interfered with Solar Max’s detectors.

Question 49: The phrase “This possibility” in paragraph 4 refers to the likelihood that the __________.

A. solar constant has declined B. instruments are providing inaccurate data

C. Nimbus 7 satellite is older than Solar Max D. solar constant cannot be measured

Question 50: The attempt to describe the solar constant can best be described as _________.

A. an ongoing research effort

B. an issue that has been resolved

C. a question that can never be answered

D. historically interesting, but irrelevant to contemporary concerns
