Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheer to indicate the correct
answer to each of the questions from 22 to 26.
In the past, technology and progress was very slow. People “invented” farming 12,000 years ago but it took
8,000 years for the idea to go around the world. Then, about 3,500 years ago, people called “potters” used round
wheels to turn and make plates. But it took hundreds of years before some clever person thought, if we join two
wheels together and make them bigger, we can use them to move things.
In the last few centuries, things have begun to move faster. Take a 20th-century invention like the aeroplane,
for example. The first acroplane flight on 17 December 1903 only lasted 12 seconds, and the plane only went 37
metres. It can't have been very exciting to watch, but that flight changed the world. Sixteen years later, the first
plane flew across the Atlantic, and only fifty years after that, men walked on the moon. Technology is now
changing our world faster and faster. So what will the future bring?
One of the first changes will be the materials we use. Scientists have just invented an amazing new material
called graphene, and soon we will use it to do lots of things. With graphene batteries in your mobile, it will take a
few seconds to charge your phone or download a thousand gigabytes of information! Today, we make most
roducts in factories, but in the future, scientists will invent living materials. Then we won't make things like cars
and furniture in factories
- we will grow them!
Thirty years ago, people couldn't have imagined social media like Twitter and Facebook. No
w we can't llve
without them. But this is only the start. Right now, scientists are putting microchips in some disabled people's
brains, to help them see, hear and communicate better. In the future, we may all use these technologies. We won't
need smartphones to use social media or search the internet because the internet will be in our heads!
More people will go into space in the future, too. Space tourism has already begun, and a hundred years from
now, there may be many hotels in space. One day, we may g
et most of our energy from space too. In 1941, the
writer Isaac Asimov wrote about a solar power station in space. People laughed at his idea then, but we should
have listened to him. Today, many people are trying to develop a space solar power station. Af
ter all, the sun
always shines above the clouds!
Câu 22: The writer says that in the past .
A. people didn't invent many things B. people didn't want to use wheels
most inventions were to do with farming D. it took time for new ideas to change things
Why does the writer use the example of the aeroplane?
A. To explain how space travel started.
To explain why transport changed in the 20P
Because he thinks it's the most important invention inhistory.
To show how an invention developed quickly.
What does the writer say about the future of communication?
A. We can't know what the most popular social media will be. B. Microchips will become faster.
We won't need devices like smartphones. D. We won't use the internet as much.
What does the writer say about space solar power?
A. It's an old idea, but people are only starting to develop it now.
It's much easier to build a solar power station in space than on Earth.
It's a science fiction idea, and nobody really thinks it will work.
People tried it in 1941, but they didn'tsucceed.
Câu 26: The best title for the article would be .
A. Will computers rule the world? B. Progress now and then

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C orD on your answer sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the questions from
The time when humans crossed the Arctic land bridge from Siberia to Alaska seems remote to us today, but
actually represents a late stage in prehistory of humans, an era when polished stone implements and bows and
arrows were already being used
and dogs bad already been domesticated.
When these early migrants arrived in North America, they found woods and plains dominated by three types
of American mammoths. Those elephants were distinguished from today's elephants mainly by their thick,
shaggy coats and their huge, upward
-curving tusks. They had arrived on the continent hundreds of thousands of
years before their human followers. The wooly mammoth in the North, the Columbian mammoth in middle
North America, and the imperial mammoth of the South, together with their distant cousins the mastodons,
dominated the land. Here, as in the Old World, there is evidence that humans hunted these elephants,as shown by
numerous spear points found with mammoth
Then, at the end of the Ice Age, when the last glaciers had retreated, there was a relatively sudden and
widespread extinction of
elephants. In the New World, both mammoths and mastodons disappeared. In the Old
World, only Indian and African elephants survived.
Why did the huge, seemingly successful mammoths disappear? Were humans connected with their extinction?
Perhaps, but at the time, although they were hunters, humans were still widely scattered and not very numerous.

It can be inferred that when humans crossed into the New World, they ______
A. had previously hunted mammoths in Siberia. B. had never seen mammoths before.
t mammoths with them from the Old World. D. soon learned to use dogs to hun mammoths.
