  5. DỰ ÁN 40 ĐỀ THI KỲ THI TỐT NGHIỆP TRUNG HỌC PHỔ THÔNG NĂM 2020 Bài thi: Ngoại ngữ; Môn thi: TIẾNG ANH ĐỀ THAM KHẢO Thời gian: 60 phút (không kể thời gian phát đề) Họ và tên: .SBD: Mã đề 803 Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks from 1 to 5. It used to be that people would drink coffee or tea in the morning to pick them up and get them going for the day. Then cola drinks hit the market. With lots of caffeine and sugar, these beverages soon became the pick-me-up of choice for many adults and teenagers. Now drink companies are putting out so-called “energy drinks”. These beverages have the specific aim of giving tired consumers more energy. One example of a popular energy drink is Red Bull. The company that puts out this beverage has stated in interviews that Red Bull is not a thirst quencher. Nor is it meant to be a fluid replacement drink for athletes. Instead, the beverage is meant to revitalize a tired consumer's body and mind. In order to do this, the makers of Red Bull, and other energy drinks, typically add vitamins and certain chemicals to their beverages. The added chemicals are like chemicals that the body naturally produces for energy. The vitamins, chemicals, caffeine, and sugar found in these beverages all seem like a sure bet to give a person energy. Health professionals are not so sure, though. For one thing, there is not enough evidence to show that all of the vitamins added to energy drinks actually raise a person's energy level. Another problem is that there are so many things in the beverages. Nobody knows for sure how all of the ingredients in energy drinks work together. Dr. Brent Bauer, one of the directors at the Mayo Clinic in the US, cautions people about believing all the claims energy drinks make. He says, “It is plausible if you put all these things together, you will get a good result.” However, Dr. Bauer adds the mix of ingredients could also have a negative impact on the body. “We just don't know at this point,” he says.

Scientists have identified two ways in which species disappear. The first is through ordinary or “background” extinctions, where species that fail to adapt are slowly replaced by more adaptable life forms. The second is when large numbers of species go to the wall in relatively short periods of biological time. There have been five such extinctions, each provoked by cataclysmic evolutionary events caused by some geological eruption, climate shift, or space junk slamming into the Earth. Scientists now believe that another mass extinction of species is currently underway – and this time human fingerprints are on the trigger. How are we doing it? Simply by demanding more and more space for ourselves. In our assault on the ecosystems around us we have used a number of tools, from spear and gun to bulldozer and chainsaw. Certain especially rich ecosystems have proved the most vulnerable. In Hawaii, more than half of the native birds are now gone – some 50 species. Such carnage has taken place all across the island communities of the Pacific and Indian oceans. While many species were hunted to extinction, others simply succumbed to the “ introduced predators’ that humans brought with them: the cat, the dog, the pig, and the rat. Today the tempo of extinction is picking up speed. Hunting is no longer the major culprit, although rare birds and animals continue to be butchered for their skin, feathers, tusks, and internal organs, or taken as savage pets. Today the main threat comes from the destruction of the habitat of wild plants, animals, and Trang 3/5 - Mã đề 803
  8. insects that need to survive. The draining and damming of wetland and river courses threatens the aquatic food chain and our own seafood industry. Overfishing and the destruction of fragile coral reefs destroy ocean biodiversity. Deforestation is taking a staggering toll, particularly in the tropics where the most global biodiversity is at risk. The shrinking rainforest cover of the Congo and Amazon river basins and such places as Borneo and Madagascar have a wealth of species per hectare existing nowhere else. As those precious hectares are drowned or turned into arid pasture and cropland, such species disappear forever. (Adapted from Final Countdown Practice Tests by D.F Piniaris, Heinle Cengage Learning, 2010 ) Question 37. What does the passage mainly discuss? A. The tempo of extinction of species today B.

Most parents want their sons and daughters to have equal chances of success when they grow up. Today, equality of the sexes is largely mandated by public policy and law. However, old-fashioned ideas and a lot of prejudice are still part of our culture and present challenging questions for parents. Gender stereotypes are rigid ideas about how boys and girls should behave. We all know what these stereotypes are: A "feminine" girls should be insecure, accommodating and a little illogical in her thinking. A "masculine" boy should be strong, unemotional, aggressive, and competitive. How are children exposed to these stereotypes? According to the researchers David and Myra Sadker of the American University of Washington, Trang 1/5 - Mã đề 804
  11. D.C., boys and girls are often treated differently in the classroom. They found out that when boys speak, teachers usually offer constructive comments, when girls speech, teachers tend to focus on the behavior. It's more important how the girls act rather than what they say. The emphasis on differences begins at birth and continues throughout childhood. For example, few people would give pink baby's clothes to a boy or a blue blanket to a girl. Later, many of us give girls dolls and miniature kitchenware, while boys receive action figures and construction sets. There's nothing wrong with that. The problem arises when certain activities are deemed appropriate for one sex but not the other. According to Heather J. Nicholson, Ph.D., director of the National Resource Center for Girls, Inc., this kind of practice prevents boys and girls from acquiring important skills for their future lives. "The fact is," says Nicholson, "that society functions as a kind of sorting machine regarding gender. In a recent survey, fifty-eight percent of eighth-grade girls but only six percent of boys earned money caring for younger children. On the other hand, twenty-seven percent of boys but only three percent of girls earned money doing lawn work". If we are serious about educating a generation to be good workers and parents, we need to eliminate such stereotypes as those mentioned previously. Gender stereotypes inevitably are passed to our children. However, by becoming aware of the messages our children receive, we can help them develop ways to overcome these incorrect ideas. To counteract these ideas, parents can look for ways to challenge and support their children, and to encourage confidence in ways that go beyond what society's fixed ideas about differences of sext are. (Adapted from Question 7. Which of the following could be the main idea of the passage? A. The influence of education and society on gender stereotypes. B. Different prejudice about how girls and boys should behave and be treated. C. Deep-seated stereotypes about genders and their effects. D. The role of culture in the behavior of different genders. Question 8. According to the second paragraph, David and Myra Sadker of the American University of Washington, D.C found that ___. A. boys are commented usefully whereas girls are paid attention to behavior. B. girls are taught to be insecure, accommodating and illogical while boys are strong, unemotional, aggressive, and competitive. C. teachers often concentrate on boys' behavior and girls' manners. D. schoolboys and schoolgirls are treated equally in the classroom. Question 9. What does the word "that" in paragraph 3 refer to? A. People often give pink clothes to a boy and a blue blanket to a girl. B. Many people give girls dolls and miniature kitchen and boys receive action figures and construction sets when they were born. C. People give different genders of children distinct kinds of presents or clothes. D. The differences between boys and girls begin at birth and continue throughout childhood. Question 10.

  13. Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks from 34 to 38. For many American university students, the weeklong spring break holiday means an endless party on a sunny beach in Florida or Mexico. In Panama City Beach, Florida, a city with a permanent population of around 36,000, more than half a million university students arrive during the month of March to play and party, making it the number one spring break destination in the United States. A weeklong drinking binge is not for anyone, however, and a growing number of American university students have found a way to make spring break matter. For them, joining or leading a group of volunteers to travel locally or internationally and work to show problems such as poverty, homelessness, or environmental damage makes spring break a unique learning experience that university students can feel good about. Students who participate in alternative spring break projects find them very rewarding. While most university students have to get their degrees before they can start helping people, student volunteers are able to help people now. On the other hand, the accommodations are far from glamorous. Students often sleep on the floor of a school or spend the week camping in tents. But students only pay around $250 for meals and transportation, which is much less than some of their peers spend to travel to more traditional spring break hotspots. Alternative spring break trips appear to be growing in popularity at universities across the United States. Students cite a number of reasons for participating. Some appreciate the opportunity to socialize and meet new friends. Others want to exercise their beliefs about people’s obligation to serve humanity and make the world a better place. Whatever their reason, these students have discovered something that gives them rich rewards along with a break from schoolwork. (Adapted from Active skills for reading) Question 34.

Many students believe that math is an inherited ability – either they have the math gene or they don’t. However, a recent research shows that inborn talent might not be as important as we think. In the long run, the most successful students are often those who work the hardest, not those with the highest IQs. These students believe that perseverance, not an innate gift, is the key to achievement. In her book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, Carol Dweck argues that a positive mindset is what makes some students push themselves when others give up. Students with a “fixed mindset” believe that they were born with a certain set of talents. They see challenges as a sign that they’ve reached the limit of their natural ability, and they stop trying. On the contrary, students with a “growth mindset” believe that there are no limits on their potential, and view challenges as a chance to learn and improve. They know that their Trang 3/4 - Mã đề 901
  18. intelligence can be built through experience and effort, and are not held back by the idea of inborn restrictions. Geoff Colvin delivers a similar message in his book, Talent Is Overrated. He demonstrates that success is almost always the result of what he calls “deliberate practice”, concentrated effort to improve one’s skills through focused effort. Inborn talent might make a difference when a subject is first tackled, but years later, it’s the hard-working children who are the most successful. Kim Callan – a math teacher – agrees: “It is rare for a hard-working student to fail in my class.” Having the right mindset is critical to success. Children need to believe in their ability to overcome challenges through concentrated effort. If you place your child in the right math class and encourage him/ her to work hard, there’s no limit to what he/she will be able to accomplish. (Adapted from TOELF Junior Reading) Question 39. Which of the following best describes the main idea of this article? A. Important factors to be successful in math B. How to know whether a child’s talent is inborn or acquired C. How to help children control their states of mind D. Parents’ important role in their children’s learning Question 40. In the first paragraph, the words “these students” refer to ___.

Some of the hard-working students failed in his math class. D. Almost none of the hard-working students failed in his math class. Question 44. What is probably TRUE about this article? A.

Recently fans of top soaps, dramas and reality shows in the USA have started to get angry about the number and frequency of the adverts in the middle of the programmes. Sometimes it seems that the adverts are more important than the programmes themselves. For example, American dramas aren't as long as they were in the past. Nowadays in the US, an ‘hour-long’ drama lasts about 40 minutes, whereas in the 1980s the programmes lasted 48 minutes. The rest is adverts. The ABC channel had slightly more adverts than other channels. But recently they've changed, which is even worse than before! Before, all their dramas had four sections. But now its producers separate each programme into six sections. Usually the first section is approximately ten minutes long. Then they have the first break. When people have watched a programme for ten minutes, it’s much less probable that they will stop watching or change channels. But then, in the next 45 minutes, there are four more commercial breaks. Each break is about three and a half minutes long. All of this makes it much more difficult for dramas’ writers to write good stories. Quiet scenes make no impact because there are more and more adverts which are longer and longer. 'It's OK for game shows or more exciting adventure series.' says American TV producer David Kelley. ‘But for programmes that don’t Trang 4/5 - Mã đề 901
  19. depend on violence or melodramatic scenes, it's more difficult to make a story with six sections. The only thing you can do is be more aggressive, either with the music or the visual impact, just to attract people's attention after the adverts.’ (Adapted from Gateway B1) Question 46. Which could be the best title of the passage? A. Adverts turn TV viewers off. B. TV commercials are no longer in favour. C. Commercial breaks increase productivity. D. Modern advertising is an advantage. Question 47. The phrase “the programmes” in paragraph 1 refers to ___. A. American dramas B. the adverts C. the ABC channels D. reality shows Question 48. The word “probable” in paragraph 2 mostly means ___. A. very difficult to deal with B. likely to happen C. causing worry D. unable to believe Question 49. According to the passage, previously all of the ABC channel’s dramas ___. A. had six segments B. consisted of 4 parts C. were divided into 5 separate parts D. lasted 40 minutes Question 50. Which of the following is TRUE about game shows as stated in the passage? A. They rely neither on violence nor melodramatic scenes. B. It is possible to make them as six-part programmes. C. Quiet scenes in game shows are important factors in attracting people’s attention. D. They attract TV viewers by adverts lasting for three minutes. THE END Trang 5/5 - Mã đề 901

Over centuries, the sоurсеs оf соlоurs were highly valued. Recently, scientists discovered the psychological effects of colours, and реорlе found ways to use this discovery to influence our feelings and behaviour. Red, thе colour of blood, symbolises fire, love and аngеr. In Eastern cultures, people believe it brings luсk, wealth and success. In humans, the color red саn send different messages. Some реорlе redden, fоr example, when they аrе аngrу оr еmbаrrаssеd. Researchers have discovered that in sрогts the team that is wearing red is more likelу to win. Why? Because red seems to be the colour that signals dominance. It is also proved that contact with this colour causes the heart rate to increase. However, оnе of red’s lighter shades, pink, can have the opposite effect on реорlе. Men in prisons are less aggressive whеn the walls are a specific shade of pink. Blue, the соlоur of the sky аnd sea, has some meaning. Its dаrkеr shades rерrеsеnt calm, stability and power. Dark blue, for example, is the соlоur of the business suit оr police uniform; it tells others, 'I аm in соntrоl.’ Bluе is also associated with depression. It’s common in English, for example, when you are feeling sad or bitter, to talk about ‘feeling blue;’ while in lrаn, blue is the colour of mоurning, wоrn whеn а реrsоn dies. Like pink, bluе has а calming effect оn people. Rooms painted blue help people to rеlах оr sleep. Sleeping pills аrе often coloured blue to suggest exactly this idea. This colour also seems to reduce feelings оf hunger. Blue food is rаrеlу seen in nature, and when it is, such food is usually nо lоngеr healthy to соnsumе.

The transition of digital photography from the privilege of rich people to an ordinary home appliance has caused some problems. That is the reason a modern man has a set of questions concerning digital cameras. The basic problem in choosing a digital camera is the guarantee that the device you are purchasing will “grow old” in a couple of months due to constant improvements and developments of technology. The only factor that may delay this process of “growing old” is purchasing a device with the price twice or three times Trang 2/5 - Mã đề 902
  22. higher than the average market price for a digital camera at the moment. If a person chooses a digital camera, there are several criteria of a great priority he needs to keep in mind: the price and the image resolution of the camera, the capacity of the memory card, the presence of an LCD display, the interface of the device and its weight and size. The price of a digital camera depends on its quality factors. The resolution of a digital camera or the “size of a digital image”, is measured in pixels which are photosensitive elements. It is common knowledge that the bigger the amount of pixels in the camera properties is, the better it is. Therefore, if a high-detailed photo is required, the usage of the zoom on a digital camera with low resolution will not give the desired result. In this case, a person choosing a digital camera needs to exactly know what it will be used for and to choose it according to its future destination. It is necessary to mention that the resolution of 640 x 480 is the lowest resolution any customer should be orientated to. It is the minimal resolution with which the purchase of a digital camera still remains reasonable. The lens of the camera or the zoom properties allows saving a lot on the price of the device but hits the quality of the pictures. The memory card is a very important issue, too. It is much better to choose a good camera with a small memory capacity than an average digital camera with a larger memory capacity. The presence of an LCD display is no longer a wish. It is a requirement for any digital camera. It allows people to check the future image, to anticipate it and to delete bad images and therefore to save space. (Adapted from TOELF Junior Reading) Question 17. What is the best title for this passage? A. Problems in Purchasing a Camera B. Elements of a Digital Camera C. How to Choose a Digital Camera D.

Many of the major supermarket chains have come under fire with accusations of various unethical acts over the past decade. They've wasted tonnes of food, they've underpaid their suppliers and they've contributed to excessive plastic waste in their packaging, which has had its impact on our environment. But supermarkets and grocers are starting to sit up and take notice. In response to growing consumer backlash against the huge amounts of plastic waste generated by plastic packaging, some of the largest UK supermarkets have signed up to a pact promising to transform packaging and cut plastic wastage. In a pledge to reuse, recycle or compost all plastic wastage by 2025, supermarkets are now beginning to take some responsibility for the part they play in contributing to the damage to our environment, with one major supermarket announcing their plan to eliminate all plastic packaging in their own-brand products by 2023. In response to criticisms over food waste, some supermarkets are donating some of their food surplus. However, charities estimate that they are only accessing two per cent of supermarkets' total food surplus, so this hardly seems to be solving the problem. Some say that supermarkets are simply not doing enough. Most supermarkets operate under a veil of secrecy when asked for exact figures of food wastage, and without more transparency it is hard to come up with a systematic approach to avoiding waste and to redistributing surplus food. Some smaller companies are now taking matters into their own hands and offering consumers a greener, more environmentally friendly option. Shops like Berlin's Original Unverpakt and London's Bulk Market are Trang 3/4 - Mã đề 903
  28. plastic-free shops that have opened in recent years, encouraging customers to use their own containers or compostable bags. Online grocer Farmdrop eliminates the need for large warehouses and the risk of huge food surplus by delivering fresh produce from local farmers to its customers on a daily basis via electric cars, offering farmers the lion's share of the retail price. There is no doubt that we still have a long way to go in reducing food waste and plastic waste. But perhaps the major supermarkets might take inspiration from these smaller grocers and gradually move towards a more sustainable future for us all. (Adapted from Question 37. Which is the most suitable title for the passage? A. Sustainable Supermarkets B. Grocers vs. Supermarkets C. Major Supermarket Chains D. Friendly Supermarkets Question 38.

Innovation in mobile phones has been happening so fast that it's difficult for consumers to change their behaviour. Phones are constantly swallowing up other products like cameras, calculators, clocks, radios, and digital music players. There are twenty different products that previously might have been bought separately that can now be part of a mobile phone. Mobiles have changed the way people talk to one another, they have generated a new type of language, they have saved lives and become style icons. Obviously, the rich have been buying phones faster than the poor. But this happens with every innovation. Mobile phone take-up among the poor has actually been far quicker than it was in the case of previous products, such as colour television , computers and Internet access. Indeed, as mobile phones continue to become cheaper and more powerful, they might prove to be more successful in bridging the gap between the rich and the poor than expensive computers. There are obviously drawbacks to mobiles as well : mobile users are two and a half times more likely to develop cancer in areas of the brain adjacent to their phone ear, although researchers are unable to prove whether this has anything to do with the phone; mobile thefts now account for a third of all street robberies in London, and don't forget about all the accidents waiting to happen as people drive with a mobile in one hand. But, overall, mobile phones have proved to be a big benefit for people. Trang 4/5 - Mã đề 903

Most libraries require you to register before you are allowed to borrow any of their materials. This means you will probably be asked to fill out and sign a registration card. When you do this, you are not only giving the library your name and address for their files, you are also signing an agreement. The agreement says, basically, that you will obey the rules of the library. A parent or guardian is sometimes also required to sign the card. To be entitled to use your school library, you probably must only be enrolled in that school. Once you are registered, you will be issued a library or borrower’s card. On this card will be your name and a number. Each time you check out, that is, officially borrow something from the library, you will have to present this card to the librarian. If your library is large enough, it may have film equipment that you may borrow. To do so, however, the library usually requires a separate registration. You may also have to take and pass a course the library gives on how to operate the different pieces of equipment. You usually check out and return borrowed materials at the same desk. The sign on this desk may read Circulation Desk, Check Out Here, or perhaps Charge Desk. The library staff member at this desk will take your card and stamp the book card with a date. This is the date by which you are expected to return the material to the library, so others can have the chance of borrowing it. Many libraries allow you to renew the book if it has not been requested by others. Some libraries charge a fine for each day a library book is overdue, kept out beyond the date stamped on the book card. There are also often fines for books returned damaged or written in. Should you lose a library book, you may be required to pay the library the amount it was worth. Not paying fines could result in your losing all library privileges.

A letter of application is a sales letter in which you are both salesperson and product, for the purpose of an application is to attract an employer's attention and persuade him or her to grant you an interview. To do this, the letter presents what you can offer the employer, rather than what you want from the job. Like a résumé, the letter of application is a sample of your work and an opportunity to demonstrate your skills and personality. If it is written with flair and understanding and prepared with professional care, it is likely to be very effective. While the résumé must be factual, objective, and brief, the letter is your chance to Trang 3/5 - Mã đề 904
  33. interpret and expand. It should state explicitly how your background relates to the specific job, and it should emphasize your strongest and most relevant characteristics. The letter should demonstrate that you know both yourself and the company. The letter of application must communicate your ambition and enthusiasm. Yet it must be modest. It should be neither aggressive nor compliant: neither pat yourself on the back nor ask for sympathy. It should never express dissatisfaction with the present or former job or employer. And you should avoid discussing your reasons for leaving your last job. Finally, it is best that you not broach the subject on salary. Indeed, even if a job advertisement requires that you mention your salary requirements, it is advisable simply to call them "negotiable". However, when you go on an interview, you should be prepared to mention a salary range. For this reason, you should investigate both your field and, if possible, the particular company. You don't want to ask for less than you deserve or more than is reasonable. (Adapted from “Select Readings-Intermediate” by Linda Lee and Erik Gundersen) Question 39.

The first drawings on walls appeared in caves thousands of years ago. Later the Ancient Romans and Greeks wrote their names and protest poems on buildings. Modern graffiti seems to have appeared in Philadelphia in the early 1960s, and by the late sixties it had reached New York. The new art form really took off in the 1970s, when people began writing their names, or “tags”, on buildings all over the city. In the mid seventies it was sometimes hard to see out of a subway car window, because the trains were completely covered in spray paintings known as “masterpieces”. In the early days, the “taggers” were part of street gangs who were concerned with marking their territory. They worked in groups called “crews”, and called what they did “writing” – the term “graffiti” was first used by The New York Times and the novelist Norman Mailer. Art galleries in New York began buying graffiti in the early seventies. But at the same time that it began to be regarded as an art form, John Lindsay, the then mayor of New York, declared the first war on graffiti. By the 1980s it became much harder to write on subway trains without being caught, and instead many of the more established graffiti artists began using roofs of buildings or canvases. The debate over whether graffiti is art or vandalism is still going on. Peter Vallone, a New York city councillor, thinks that graffiti done with permission can be art, but if it is on someone else’s property it becomes a crime. ‘I have a message for the graffiti vandals out there,’ he said recently. ‘Your freedom of expression ends where my property begins.’ On the other hand, Felix, a member of the Berlin-based group Reclaim Your City, says that artists are reclaiming cities for the public from advertisers, and that graffiti represents freedom and makes cities more vibrant. For decades graffiti has been a springboard to international fame for a few. Jean-Michel Basquiat began spraying on the street in the 1970s before becoming a respected artist in the ’80s. The Frenchman Blek le Rat and the British artist Banksy have achieved international fame by producing complex works with stencils, often making political or humorous points. Works by Banksy have been sold for over £100,000. Graffiti is now sometimes big business. (Adapted from Question 20. What is the most suitable title for the passage? A. Taggers in graffiti B.
