HOC24.VN 4 Reading to oneself is a modern activity which was almost unknown to the scholars of the classical and medieval worlds, while during the fifteenth century the term “reading” undoubtedly meant reading aloud. Only during the nineteenth century did silent reading become commonplace. One should be wary, however, of assuming that silent reading came about simply because reading aloud was a distraction to others. Examinations of factors related to the historical development of silent reading have revealed that it became the usual mode of reading for most adults mainly because the tasks themselves changed in character. The last century saw a steady gradual increase in literacy and thus in the number of readers. As the number of readers increased, the number of potential listeners declined and thus there was some reduction in the need to read aloud. As reading for the benefit of listeners grew less common, so came the flourishing of reading as a private activity in such public places as libraries, railway carriages and offices, where reading aloud would cause distraction to other readers. Towards the end of the century, there was still considerable argument over whether books should be used for information or treated respectfully and over whether the reading of materials such as newspapers was in some way mentally weakening. Indeed, this argument remains with us still in education. However, whatever its virtues, the old shared literacy culture had gone and was replaced by the printed mass media on the one hand and by books and periodicals for a specialised readership on the other. By the end of the twentieth century, students were being recommended to adopt attitudes to books and to use reading skills which were inappropriate, if not impossible, for the oral reader. The social, cultural and technological changes in the century had greatly altered what the term “reading” implied. Câu 36: Reading aloud was more common in the medieval world because .

The Sun today is a yellow dwarf star. It is fueled by thermonuclear reactions near its center that convert hydrogen to helium. The Sun has existed in its present state for about four billion six hundred million years and is thousands of times larger than the Earth. By studying other stars, astronomers can predict what the rest of the Sun’s life will be like. About five billion years from now, the core of the Sun will shrink and become hotter. The surface temperature will fall. The higher temperature of the center will increase the rate of thermonuclear reactions. The outer regions of the Sun will expand approximately 35 million miles, about the distance to Mercury, which is the closest planet to the Sun. The Sun will then be a red giant star. Temperatures on the Earth will become too high for life to exist. Once the Sun has used up its thermonuclear energy as a red giant, it will begin to shrink. After it shrinks to the size of the Earth, it will become a white dwarf star. The Sun may throw off huge amounts of gases in violent eruptions called nova explosions as it changes from a red giant to a white dwarf. After billions of years as a white dwarf, the Sun will have used up all its fuel and will have lost its heat. Such a star is called a black dwarf. After the Sun has become a black dwarf, the Earth will be dark and cold. If any atmosphere remains there, it will have frozen over the Earth’s surface. Câu 43: It can be inferred from the passage that the Sun ___. A. has been in existence for 10 billion years B. is approximately halfway through its life as a yellow dwarf C. will continue to be a yellow dwarf for another 10 billion years D. is rapidly changing in size and brightness Câu 44: When the Sun becomes a red giant, what will the atmosphere be like on the Earth? A. It will become too hot for life to exist. HOC24.VN 6 B. It will be enveloped in the expanding surface of the sun. C. It will freeze and become solid. D. It will be almost destroyed by nova explosions. Câu 45: Large amounts of gases may be released from the Sun at the end of its life as a .

A. a cool and habitable planet B. the same size as the planet Mercury C. thousands of times smaller than it is today D. around 35 million miles in diameter Câu 47: The Sun will become a black dwarf when ___. A. the outer regions of the Sun expand B. it has used up all its fuel as a white dwarf C. the Sun moves nearer to the Earth D. the core of the Sun becomes hotter Câu 48: The word “there” in the last sentence of paragraph 4 refers to .
