A rather surprising geographical feature of Antarctica is that a huge freshwater lake, one of the world's largest and deepest, lies hidden there under four kilometers of ice. Now known as Lake Vostok, this huge body of water is located under the ice block that comprises Antarctica. The lake is able to exist in its unfrozen state beneath this block of ice because its waters are warmed by geothermal heat from the earth's core. The thick glacier above Lake Vostok actually insulates it from the frigid temperatures on the surface. The lake was first discovered in the 1970s while a research team was conducting an aerial survey of the area. Radio waves from the survey equipment penetrated the ice and revealed a body of water of indeterminate size. It was not until much more recently that data collected by satellite made scientists aware of the tremendous size of the lake; the satellite-borne radar detected an extremely flat region where the ice remains level because it is floating on the water of the lake. The discovery of such a huge freshwater lake trapped under Antarctica is of interest to the scientific community because of the potential that the lake contains ancient microbes that have survived for thousands upon thousands of years, unaffected by factors such as nuclear fallout and elevated ultraviolet light that have affected organisms in more exposed areas. The downside of the discovery, however, lies in the difficulty of conducting research on the lake in such a harsh climate and in the problems associated with obtaining     CREATED & RELEASED by   Bình – THPT Li n S n, L p Th ch, V nh Phúc – [email protected]    uncontaminated samples from the lake without actually exposing the lake to contamination.

Topic: Media are said to affect ú different ways. Discuss the matter in a composition. I think the media pay too much attention to the private lives of famous people. Television, newspapers, magazines and web sites dig up all kinds of past bad actions. They say that these are true reflections of a person's character. This may be true if they occurred only a few years before, but some of these are things people did as teenagers. People in their forties are expected to explain something they did when they were fifteen. If they killed someone, obviously that's more than a youthful mistake. Usually, though, these incidents involve experiments with drugs or being reckless in a car. They're not something that the public needs to know.  CREATED & RELEASED by   Bình – THPT Li n S n, L p Th ch, V nh Phúc – [email protected]    The media love to say that the public has a right to know. That's not true. We don't need to know if a movie star or politician has had an extramarital affair. That is something of concern only to the people involved. We do need to know if someone we're electing to public office has been involved in shady business deals, but we don't need to know if he or she defaulted on a loan twenty years ago. It seems the media dig up these facts without giving thoughtful consideration to what might happen. It has an effect on the celebrity's family, especially the children. A celebrity's good name and credibility may be ruined before he or she can prove that rumors are false. If a case goes to court, paying a lawyer can use up all their money. Even if it doesn't come to that, they may find their career ruined. When are we, the public, going to make it clear to the media that we're tired of having to watch this kind of thing on the news? Wouldn't it be better if they would concentrate on more important issues? ---------------H T---------------  CREATED & RELEASED by   Bình – THPT Li n S n, L p Th ch, V nh Phúc – [email protected]     S GD& T V NH PHÚC TR NG THPT LI N S N ( LUY N 202)   THI TH THPT QU C GIA N M 2016 MÔN THI: TI NG ANH Th i gian: 90 phút   Ơ          PH N TR C NGHI M: (8 i m) I.

Since 1840, American presidents elected in years ending with zero have died in office, with one exception. William H. Harrison, the man who served the shortest term, died of pneumonia only several weeks after his inauguration. Abraham Lincoln was one of four presidents who were assassinated. He was elected in 1860, and his untimely death came just five years later. James A. Garfield, a former Union army general from Ohio, was shot during his first year in office (1881) by a man to whom he wouldn't give a job. While in his second term of office (1901), William McKinley, another Ohioan, attended the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. During the reception, he was assassinated while shaking hands with some of the guests. John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 in Dallas only three years after his election. Three years after his election in 1920, Warren G, Harding died in office. Although it was never proved, many believe he was poisoned. Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected four times (1932, 1936, 1940 and 1944), the only man to serve so long a term. He had contracted polio in 1921 and eventually died of the illness in 1945. Ronald Reagan, who was elected in 1980 and reelected four years later, suffered an assassination attempt but did not succumb to the assassin's bullets.

It is widely believed that home is where love dwells and that east or west home is the best. That means family is so important to any of us that we hardly grow up without the care from family members. It is also true that the social, economic changes make the traditional family formulas vary. Although different people have different points of view on the matters, we all agree that families now are not as close-knit as they used to be. The causes are various, but we can count for the three main points below. The first cause is that in our modern life we all seem to have so busy lives and dynamic lifestyles. People now are so busy with working, earning, getting promotions, taking part in social activities, etc. People are likely to have longer working hours because of their demand of earning more and more. People seem to be never satisfied with what they have. In families, under the economic pressure, both parents work so they have less time for themselves as well as for other family members. Another cause is that due to the explosion of modern technologies people are more interested in their online lives than interacting with other family members. It is sometimes thought that people seem to isolate themselves with their mobile-phones, tablets, personal computers, and other information technological devices. Having different viewpoints is the other cause of course. The generation gaps sometimes cause misunderstandings or even debates. Information technology also brings opportunities to diverse viewpoints within family members. Having different opinions pulls people far from one another. Above all, though changes of traditional families are unavoidable, we are to shorten the gaps among family members to be as close-knit as possible. Because family life is very important to any individual, each member must be responsible for bringing all family members closer together. ----- THE END -----  Created & Released by    Bình – THPT Li n S n, L p Th ch, v nh Phúc – [email protected]    S GD& T V NH PHÚC TR NG THPT LI N S N ( LUY N 203)   THI TH THPT QU C GIA N M 2016 MÔN THI: TI NG ANH Th i gian: 90 phút   Ơ          PH N TR C NGHI M: (8 i m) I.

Curious as it may sound , this relationship in many respects comes close to that between history and literature. Economics, after all, is the science (in the broad meaning of the term) of something which men actually do. Even if the science did not exist, men would still make economic decisions, economic predictions, and participate in the various forms of economics organization which , in part, it is the economist’s function to describe. Similarly, the disciplined study of literature is concerned with something which men would also do anyway even if the disciplined study did not exist: compose poems, act out dramas, write novels, and read them. Political science, or the discipline of politics, has, it is true, many similarities to economics, particularly where it is concerned with generalization about political structures. 26.

GOLD IN ALASKA (1)Alaska’s first major gold discovery occurred in Juneau in 1880, when two prospectors guided by a native found gold in a creek that, of course, is now called Gold Creek. (2) The city itself is named for Joseph Juneau, one of the miners, while the other miner, Richard Harris, lent his name to the Harris Ming District. Their find led to the discovery of a lode of gold quartz that has supported mining to present times. (3) Prospectors arrived in the 1890s as a result of gold strikes in the Klondike and near Nome. Many took steamship to Skagway in Southeast Alaska, where they began their trek by land to the Klondike. (4)The discovery of gold at Anvil Creek in 1898 brought thousands of fortune seekers to the Nome area; gold was later discovered on Nome’s Bering Sea beaches, where it is still found today. Prospectors can be seen straining gravel in their sluice boxes along the shore, perhaps just hoping to find enough gold to pay for their annual summer trips to Nome. A major commercial gold dredging operation was conducted offshore in the 1990s. The gold rush gave many communities in Alaska their start. Gold was discovered in Fairbanks, for example, in 1902, and it became an important supply post as well as center of mining activity where major operations continue today. 51.

It was reported recently by the U.S scientists that the volume of ice on the North Pole is now the smallest within 36 last years. That is caused by the global warming process. Various other bad things human beings are now facing are also related to the warming of the Earth climate. The fact is that we are the main agents who are responsible for the worsening of the nature. So, individuals and governments throughout the world should co-operate to stop the natural environment worsening process. Each individual first must be more aware of the need to protect our environment for not only our own lives but also the next generations. The first easy thing one can do is to save the energy by using less heat and air-conditioning, using energy-efficient products, or even driving less. Another way is to recycle paper, plastic, newspaper, glass, etc. When the recycling is practiced, it helps to reduce the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The other thing is to plant more trees because as we know, trees can absorb carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. The fact is that the mission is not done by one or a group of persons so we should educate the community and encourage everyone to join hands to recycle and conserve energy. Countries all over the world, rich or poor, developed, developing or underdeveloped should cooperate to better the situation. First of all, governments are better to inform their citizens about the global warming facts and the mishaps that people may face if the process goes on. Then, in order to reduce the emissions, governments should impose heavier taxes on the produce of greenhouse gas emissions. Factories and companies that over-emit may not be allowed to operate or even be closed. Moreover, bigger sums of money must be spent on researches discovering the alternative sources of energy. Additionally, stricter laws on environmental problems should be passed and enforced to better the surroundings for people to live. After all, the work to recover the environment and to stop the global warming process cannot be done overnight or completed by one person or one nation, we, human beings all over the world, must co-act to share the missions. Though this is the international millennium goals, each individual can do something now to help to realize man’s purpose. -------------THE END------------ Created & Released by    Bình – THPT Li n S n, L p Th ch, v nh Phúc – [email protected]    Created & Released by    Bình – THPT Li n S n, L p Th ch, v nh Phúc – [email protected]    S GD& T V NH PHÚC TR NG THPT LI N S N ( LUY N 204)   THI TH THPT QU C GIA N M 2016 MÔN THI: TI NG ANH Th i gian: 90 phút   Ơ          PH N TR C NGHI M: (8 i m) Choose the best option 1.

A B C D Read the following passage and choose indicate the correct answer to each of the questions Probably the most famous film commenting on the twentieth-century technology is Modern Times, made in 1936. Charlie Chaplin was motivated to make the film by a reporter who, while interviewing him, happened to describe the working conditions in industrial Detroit. Chaplin was told that healthy young farm boys were lured to the city to work on automotive assembly lines. Within four or five years, these young men’s health was destroyed by the stress of work in the factories. {lure: attract or tempt} The film opens with a shot of a mass of sheep making their way down a crowded ramp. Abruptly, the film shifts to a scene of factory workers jostling one another on their way to a factory. However, the rather bitter note of criticism in the implied comparison is not sustained. It is replaced by a gentle note of satire. Chaplin prefers to entertain rather than lecture. Scenes of factory interiors account for only about one-third of Modern Times, but they contain some of the most pointed social commentary as well as the most comic situations. No one who has seen the film can ever forget Chaplin vainly trying to keep pace with the fast-moving conveyor belt, almost losing his mind in the process. Another popular scene involves an automatic feeding machine brought to the assembly line so that workers need not interrupt their labor to eat. The feeding machine malfunctions, hurling food at Chaplin, who is strapped in his position on the assembly line and cannot escape. This serves to illustrate people’s utter helplessness in the face of machines that are meant to serve their basic needs. Clearly, Modern Times has its faults, but it remains the best film treating technology within a social context. It does not offer a radical social message, but it does accurately reflect the sentiment of many who feel they are victims of an over-mechanised world. 36. According to the passage, Chaplin got the idea for Modern Times from ______. B. a conversation C. a newspaper D. fieldwork A. a movie 37.

Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions Very few people in the modern world obtain their food supply by hunting and gathering in the natural environment surrounding their homes. This method of harvesting from nature’s provision is the oldest known subsistence strategy and has been practised for at least the last two million years. It was, indeed, the only way to obtain food until rudimentary farming and the domestication of wild animals were introduced about 10,000 years ago. Because hunter-gatherers have fared poorly in comparison with their agricultural cousins, their numbers have dwindled, and they have been forced to live in marginal environments, such as deserts and arctic wastelands. In higher latitudes, the shorter growing seasons have restricted the availability of plant life. Such conditions have caused a greater dependence on hunting, and on fishing along the coasts and waterways. The abundance of vegetation in the lower latitudes of the tropics, on the other hand, has provided a greater opportunity for gathering a variety of plants. In short, the environmental differences have restricted the diet and have limited possibilities for the development of subsistence societies. Contemporary hunter-gatherers may help us understand our prehistoric ancestors. We know from the observation of modern hunter-gatherers in both Africa and Alaska that a society based on hunting and gathering must be very mobile. While the entire community camps in a central location, a smaller party harvests the food within a reasonable distance from the camp. When the food in the area has become exhausted, the community moves on to exploit another site. We also notice seasonal migration patterns evolving for most hunter-gatherers, along with a strict division of labor between the sexes. These patterns of behavior may be similar to those practised by mankind during the Paleolithic Period. 56. The word “domestication” in the first paragraph mostly means ______. A. hatching and raising new species of wild animals in the home B. adapting animals to suit a new working environment C. teaching animals to do a particular job or activity in the home D. making wild animals used to living with and working for humans 57. According to the passage, subsistence societies depend mainly on ______. A. agricultural products B. hunter-gatherers’ tools C. nature’s provision D. farming methods 58. The word “marginal” in the second paragraph is closest in meaning to “______”. C. disadvantaged D. abandoned A. forgotten B. suburban 59. In the lower latitudes of the tropics, hunter-gatherers ______. A. have better food gathering from nature B. can free themselves from hunting C. harvest shorter seasonal crops D. live along the coasts and waterways for fishing 60. According to the passage, studies of contemporary subsistence societies can provide a ______. A. further understanding of prehistoric times B. broader vision of prehistoric natural environments C. further understanding of modern subsistence societies D. deeper insight into the dry-land farming 61. The word “conditions” in the second paragraph refers to ______. A. the environments where it is not favorable for vegetation to grow B. the situations in which hunter-gatherers hardly find anything to eat C. the places where plenty of animals and fish can be found D. the situations in which hunter-gatherers can grow some crops 62. A typical feature of both modern and prehistoric hunter-gatherers is that ______.

In life, although I have several hobbies, watching movies is the one I am more interested in. I have watched countless films so far, but B N KHÔNG CH NG, a product of VFC (Vietnam Film Corporation) in 2001, is the one that has created the biggest impression on me ever since. The film is set in the time of our war against the American troops in the South to unify the country and the construction to build a communist country in the North. The ground of the story is in a tranquil poor farming village in the North. The main characters are Mr. Van, a veteran, a secretary of the village’s Communist Youth Union named Hanh, the two widows and the villagers. The story happens right inside the village to the bank of a no-name-river having a namely Khong Chong river five-step-wharf. After serving in the army Van came back to his village in which there were only old villagers together with almost widows, girls and very few disabled men. When Van returned, he was appointed head of the village armed group which consisted of around six armed girls including Hanh – Van’s former sweetheart’s daughter. Van lived under the same roof with a land-lord widow and her 16 year-old son. Van was then admired by all the villagers, so he tried his best to meet the residents’ expectations. Though sometimes the mid-forties man felt lonely, he tried not to do wrong thing especially on sex. Time passed, peace was then established with the unification declaration, the village was still under the misery of the war unhappiness. Hanh married to an Army captain, but had no child for long. Debates and conflicts occurred, which made Hanh left her husband. So disappointed, and hopeless, she entered Van’s hut by a showery night. The two thirsty unhappy persons met, and then Hanh was pregnant. Unable to live with the villagers’ prejudice, Van and Hanh left the homeland, and finally Van killed himself by the river wharf Ben Khong Chong. The scenes in the movie are colorful and interesting, typical for a North Vietnam’s rural village. The story is touching and rather mournful. The acting of the main characters is excellent as they are all famous actors and actresses. The film leaves us valuable lessons in life, and helps us know more about the rural life courtesy. I must say that it is one of the best movies I have ever watched in my life. ----------THE END---------   Created & Released by    Bình – THPT Li n S n, L p Th ch, v nh Phúc – [email protected]
