indicate the correc
t word or phrase for each of the blanks.
A long time ago, when ancient Rome was still an
empire, people of that time used similar weights
and measures. The standards for these weights and measures were established by the Romans, who
kept these standards in a temple in Rome. All standards for measuring weight or distance were the
same, whether in Spain or in Syria. But then the Roman Empire fell, and these standards
disappeared. Today, standards vary from place to place throughout the world. Tourists who drive
from the United States in Canada, for example, are surprised when they buy gasoline for their cars.
A gallon of gas costs more than they are accustomed to paying. They complain that prices are much
higher in Canada than in the United States. Then the
y discover that they can drive farther on a
Canadian gallon than on a United States gallon. Is it a different kind of gas? No, it is a different kind
of gallon. Canada uses the British, or imperial, gallon that is about one-fifth larger than the United
tes gallon. Four quarts equal a gallon and two pints equal a quart in both countries. But Canada’s
quarts and pints are larger than quarts and pints in the United States. The imperial gallon equals
277.42 cubic inches while the gallon in the United States
is equal to 231 cubic inches. Measured in
ounces, Canada’s large gallon holds 160 fluid ounces, while the smaller United States gallon holds
no more than 128 fluid ounces. From these figures, it is easy to see why Americans can drive farther
on the Canadia
n gallon than on the American gallon. Someday, countries may follow the example of
the ancient Romans and make weights and measures the same for every nation.

The sea has always interested people. From it
they can get food, minerals, and treasures. For
thousands of years, they sa
iled on the sea. But they could not go far beneath its surface. People want
to explore deep into the sea. However, they are not fishes. Because people must breathe air, they
cannot stay under the water’s surface for any length of time. To explore deep water, men and
women face even more dangers and problems. A diver who wants to stay under water for more
than a few minutes must breathe air or a special mixture of gases. Divers can we
ar diving suits and
have air pumped to them from above. They can carry tanks of air on their back and breathe through
a hose and a mouthpiece. Water weighs 800 times as much as air. Tons of water push against a
diver deep in the sea. The diver’s body is un
der great pressure. When divers are under great
pressure, their blood takes in some of the gases they breathe. As they rise too quickly, the gases in
their blood form bubbles. Divers then suffer from the bends. The bends can cause divers to double
up in pa
in. Bends can even kill divers.
Câu 44: Which statement does the story lead you to believe?
Humans are not at home dee
p in the sea.
All divers get the bends sooner or later.
The sea began to interest humans in the last few years.
Diving suits do not help divers.
Câu 45: The story does not say so, but it makes you think that_________.
deep-sea divers should be in good health
r the water too quickly causes the bends
Divers can wear diving suits to avoid the bends
divers explore the deep seas
only for treasure

Câu 48: The gases in a diver’s blood can form________.
