The earthquake began a minute before the noon when the inhabitants of Tokyo were cooking their midday meals. Thousands of stoves were overturned as soon as the earth began to shake. As a result, small fires broke out everywhere and quickly spread. The fire engines were prevented from going to help because many of the roads had cracked open. It was impossible to use fire fighting equipment as most of the water pipes had burst. Consequently, over ninety percent of the damage caused by fire rather than by the collapse of the buildings.

Question II. Read the text and decide if the sentences are true (T) or false (F)

A mobile phone, also known as a cell phone, is one that we can use to make telephone calls to anyone from a great distance via a radio link. Apart from telephony, modern smart mobile phones also support a number of other services including text messaging, internet access, gaming, photography, and many business applications.

The first cell phone weighed about 2 kilograms and was demonstrated in 1973 by Dr.Martin Cooper and John F.Mitchell of Motorola. Ten years later, in 1983, the first model of cell phone went on sale to the public. By 2011, over six billion people, 87% of the world’s population, used mobile networks.

In spite of the many advantages a cell phone has, it also brings about several problems that users should be aware of. Mobile phone radiation is believed to be harmful to human health. Some recent studies have found an association between cell phone use and certain kinds of brain disease. Another serious problem can be privacy and tracking. Once users have the phone on, they can be interrupted in many ways, and they can also be tracked by location data.

Statements

T

F

1. A cell phone is like a cordless phone that is used within a short range of a base station.

2. A cell phone can’t operate without a radio link.

3. The sound of a mobile phone may cause brain diseases.

Hi, my name is Trang

How are you, Vante? Now, I am talking about my leisure activities. In my free time, I like listen to music. I adore doing it because it is relaxing. I don't like teaching my younger brother because teaching younger brother takes me a long time to hang out and he refuses to learn. On Sunday, I like to go to bookstore. Bookstore is beautiful. At the bookstore, I like ti find English books because I love learning English. What about you?

Best, Trang
