One of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Great Pyramid of Giza was a monument of wisdom and prophecy built as a tomb for Pharaoh Cheops in 2720 B.C. Despite its antiquity, certain aspects of its construction make it one of truly great wonders of the world. The thirteen-acre structure near the Nile River is a solid mass of stone blocks covered with limestone. Inside are the number of hidden passageways and the burial chamber for the pharaoh. It is the largest single structure in the world. The four sides of the pyramid are aligned almost exactly on true north, south, east, and west – an incredible engineering feat. The ancient Egyptians were sun worshippers and great astronomers, so computations for the Great Pyramid were based on astronomical observations.
Explorations and detailed examinations of the base of the structure reveal many intersecting lines. Further scientific study indicates that these represent a type of timeline of events-past, present and future. Many of the events have been interpreted and found to coincide with known facts of the past. Others are prophesied for the future generations and are currently under investigation.

IX: Read the passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the following questions.
The bat, say scientists, is one of nature’s most dazzling and precious creations. According to the fossil record, bats were soaring in the sky at least 55 million years ago. These ancient fliers, says evolutionary biologist Nancy Simmons of New York’s American Museum of Natural History, were “virtually indistinguishable from today echolocating bats”. Though to look at them most resemble rodents, bats’ closest cousins are primates. Modern bats are amazingly diverse, about 1,000 species account for nearly a fourth of all mammal species. The only known group of flying mammals, they range in size from Thailand’s tiny bumblebee bat, weighing almost nothing, to Indonesia’s giant flying fox, with wingspans of nearly 5 ft. Many bats feed on insects, while others prefer fruit, nectar, or pollen. A few feast on fish, rodents, and blood. Contrary to legend, however, vampire bats, which dwell in Latin America, suck the blood of grazing cattle and horses, not sleeping humans.
Essentially docile, bats play a vital role in maintaining ecological balance. For one thing, they protect crops from marauding insects. The 20 million Mexican free-tailed bats that roots in Bracken Cave near San Antonio, Texas, from spring to fall consume 250 tons of insects every night as they swarm to altitudes of more than 10.000ft. A single little brown bat can also lap up 600 mosquitoes an hour.
Câu 76: The passage primarily discusses the bat’s ______.
A. lifespan B. lifecycle C. lifestyle D. life-blood
