Read the passage carefully and choose the best parts to fill in the blanks

What exactly is a tornado? The general picture is familiar enough. The phenomenon usually occurs on a hot, sticky day with south wind and an ominous sky. From the base of a thunderhead, a funnel-shaped cloud extends a violently twisting spout toward the Earth. As it sucks in matter in its path, the twister may turn black, brown or even white. The moving cloud shows an almost continuous display of sheet lightning. It lurches along in a meandering path, usually northeast ward, at 25 to 40 miles per hour. Sometimes it picks up its finger from the earth for a short distance and then plants it down again. The funnel is very slender; its wake of violence averages about 400 yards wide. As the tornado approaches, it is heralded by a roar as a hundreds of jet planes or thousands of railroad cars. Its path is a path of total destruction. Buildings explode as they are sucked in by the tornado’s low-pressure vortex (where the pressure drop is as much as 10 percent) and by its powerful whirling winds (estimated at up to 500 miles per hour). The tornado’s lifetime is as brief as it is violent. Within a few tens of miles (average about 16 miles), it spends its force and suddenly disappears.

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 61 to 64.

In this era of increased global warming and diminishing fossil fuel supplies, we must begin to put a greater priority on harnessing alternative energy sources. Fortunately, there are a number of readily available, renewable resources that are both cost- effective and earth – friendly. Two such resources are solar power and geothermal power. Solar energy, which reaches the earth through sunlight, is so abundant that it could meet the needs of worldwide energy consumption 6,000 times over. And solar energy is easily harnessed through the use of photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight to electricity. In the US alone, more than 100, 000 homes are equipped with solar electric systems in the form of solar panels or solar roof tiles. And in other parts of the world, including many developing countries, the use of solar system is growing steadily.

Another alternative energy source, which is abundant in specific geographical areas, is geothermal power, which creates energy by tapping heat from below the surface of the earth. Hot water and steam that are trapped in underground pools are pumped to the surface and used to run a generator, which is produces electricity. Geothermal energy is 50,000 times more abundant than the entire known supply of fossil fuel resources. And as with solar power, the technology needed to utilize geothermal energy is fairly simple. A prime example of effective geothermal use is in Iceland, a region of high geothermal activity where over 80 percent of private homes are heated by geothermal power. Solar and geothermal energy are just two of promising renewable alternatives to conventional energy sources. The time is long overdue to invest in the development and use of alternative energy on global scale.

Câu 61. What is the main topic of this passage ?

A. The benefits of solar and wind power over conventional energy sources.

B. How energy resources are tapped from nature.

C. Two types of alternative energy sources that should be further utilized.

D. Examples of the use of energy sources worldwide.

Câu 62. According to the passage, why should we consider using alternative energy sources ?

A. Because fossil fuels are no longer available.

B. Because global warming has increased the amount of sunlight that reaches the earth.

C. Because they are free and available worldwide.

D. Because conventional energy resources are being depleted, and they cause environmental damage.

Câu 63. According to the passage, what can be inferred about solar roof tiles?

A. They are being used in many undeveloped countries. C. They are more expensive than solar panels.

B. They can convert geothermal energy to electricity. D. They contain photovoltaic cells.

Câu 64. According to the passage, how is solar energy production similar to geothermal energy production ?

A. They both require the use of a generator. B. They both use heat from the earth’s surface.

C. They both require fairly simple technology. D. They are both conventional and costly

II. TOPIC: Write a letter to pen-pal to talk about your family.

……………, September 26th, 2014

Dear Michael,

I am writing to talk about my family as requested in your last letter.

There are four members in my family; my parents, my elder brother and I. My dad is now at his forty-five and my mom is two years younger. My elder brother is twenty-two of age. My dad is a teacher at a local high school, and he has to work nearly weekdays. Very often he has extra classes on weekends, sometimes he has evening classes. My mom is a farmer and she has to work hard in the fields nearly daily from early morning till dark. My elder brother is now a final year university student, so he has very little time to be at home with other family members. Although my parents are very busy, they try hard to spare as much time to take care of their children as possible.

My mom is a really caring woman who is always the first to get up to prepare for other family members things to start a new day, and the last to go to bed to make sure that everything is under control. My dad is always willing to join hands to make us a nice house and a happy home. My brother and I love helping my parents in all sort of work whenever we have chance.

In my family, members care as much for others as possible to make a close-knit family. We are admired so much by the neighboring residents. Whenever problems come up, we discuss the matters all together frankly to find out solutions quickly. We also share all happiness and worries, so we all feel happy, safe and secure at home just as the saying we love “Home is where love dwells and thrives”.

As you know, I am now in my final secondary year, preparing for the coming examinations with so much pressure. Therefore, all members in my family encourage and give me the best to help me realize my dreams.

That is some about my family, and I would very much like to hear about yours in turn. I hope you will share with me your family life. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
