They are taught to enter the loft through a trap and to exercise above and around the loft, and gradually they are taken away for short distances in wicker baskets and released. They are then expected to find their way home in the shortest possible time. In their training flights or in actual races, the birds are taken to prearranged distant points and released to find their way back to their own lofts. Once the birds are liberated, their owners, who are standing by at the home lofts, anxiously watch the sky for the return of their entries. Since time is of the essence, the speed with which the birds can be induced to enter the loft trap may make the difference between gaining a win or a second place. The head of a homing pigeon is comparatively small, but its brain is one quarter larger than that of the ordinary pigeon. The homing pigeon is very intelligent and will persevere to the point of stubbornness; some have been known to fly a hundred miles off course to avoid a storm. Some homing pigeon experts claim that this bird is gifted with a form of built-in radar that helps it find its own loft after hours of flight, for hidden under the head feathers are two very sensitive ears, while the sharp, prominent eyes can see great distances in daytime. Why do homing pigeons fly home? They are not unique in this inherent skill: it is found in most migratory birds, in bees, ants, toads, and even turtles, which have been known to travel hundreds of miles to return to their homes. But in the animal world, the homing pigeon alone can be trusted with its freedom and trained to carry out the missions that people demand. Question 36: What is the purpose of the passage? A. To convince the reader to buy a homing pigeon. B. To inform the reader about homing pigeons and their training. C. To protect homing pigeons against the threat of extinction. D. To encourage the owners of homing pigeons to set the birds free. HOC24.VN 5 Question 37: According to the passage, what happens to homing pigeons when they are about a month old? A. They are kept in a trap. B. They enter their first race. C. They begin a training program. D. They get their wings clipped and marked. Question 38: In paragraph 2, when the author states that the owners "anxiously watch the sky" there is the implication that the owners _______________________. A. want their pigeon to win the race B. are sending radar signals to their pigeons C. do not know whether the race began on time D. do not trust the rules set down by the judges Question 39: According to the passage, what is the difference between a homing pigeon and an ordinary one? A. The span of the wings B. The shape of the eyes C. The texture of the feathers D. The size of the brain Question 40: The author mentions all of the following at tributes that enable a homing pigeon to return home EXCEPT ____________________.

To compare their home-finding abilities with those of homing pigeons. D. To interest the reader in learning about other animals. 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 from 43 to 50 ACADEMICS AREN’T THE PROBLEM Studies about how students use their time might shed light on whether they face increased academic and financial pressures compared with earlier eras. The data show that full-time students in all types of colleges study much less now than they did a generation ago - a full 10 hours a week less. Students are also receiving significantly higher grades. So it appears that academic pressures are, in fact, considerably lower than they used to be.The time-use data don’t suggest that students feel greater financial pressures, either. When the time savings and lower opportunity costs are factored in, college appears less expensive for most students than it was in the 1960s. And though there are now more full-time students working for pay while in college, they study less even when paid work choices are held constant. In other words, full-time students do not appear to be studying less in order to work more. They appear to be studying less and spending the extra time on leisure activities or fun. It seems hard to imagine that students feeling increased financial pressures would respond by taking more leisure. Based on how students are spending their time then, it doesn’t look as though academic or financial pressures are greater now than a generation ago. The time-use data don’t speak directly to social pressures, and it may well be that these have become more intense lately. In one recent set of data, students reported spending more than 23 hours per week either socializing with friends or playing on the computer for fun. Social activities, in person or on HOC24.VN 6 computer, would seem to have become the major focus of campus life. It is hard to tell what kinds of pressures would be associated with this change. Question 43: Research studies have shown that pressures put on students nowadays are __________. A. much greater than the past B. not greater than the past C. getting ever greater D. more diversified Question 44: Which of the following is used by the author as the proof of academic pressures being lower than before? A. More students work while in college B. Students get higher grades C. Students study less D. Both B & C Question 45: All factors considered, college now seems___________ . A. even more expensive B. more costly C. less expensive D. much more expensive Question 46: According to the author, the fact that more full-time students are working for pay________. A. is not an indication of pressures B. shows that students are financially pressured C. does not change students’ campus life D. indicates that students are academically pressured Question 47: The author finds it hard to point out___________. A. the cause to students’ financial pressure B. what is associated with the change in students’ campus life C. how students’ campus life becomes subject to academic pressure D. how the background of students’ campus life is built Question 48: The word “focus” in the last paragraph can be replaced with__________. A. headline B. biggest importance C. primary theme D. central activity Question 49: According to the author, the fact that students have more time for leisure is a proof that ______. A. financial pressure on students is not a problem B. they are active with extra-curricular activities C. academic work disinterests them D. they cannot find extra jobs Question 50: The word “Academics” in the title mostly means___________ A. college students and tutors B. professors and research students C. students’ workload in college D. graduate students’ workload
