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 .
Like many other fast-growing cities around the world, Mexico City is facing severe water shortages. Many of its 20 million inhabitants receive only one hour of piped water per week. Others receive none at all for weeks on end. Those who can afford the expense build their own home water system to catch and keep rainwater to supplement the city water. The situation, according to intemational experts, is the result of a combination of factors. First, the system of pipes is old and poorly managed, with the result that the pipes lose almost 40 percent of the water that they distribute aroundthe city. Second, the demand for water, which has grown with the rapid population growth, far exceeds the supply. Furthermore, the water is consumed not only by residents for household use, but also by thirsty industries such as beer-brewers and soft-drink bottlers, and there is little incentive for them to conserve or recycle water.
The current water shortages in Mexico City contrast remarkably with the city's situation in the past. When the Spanish arrived at the Aztec Capital in 1519, they destroyed the buildings, and began draining the water from the lakes to build what became Mexico City. For the next four centuries, the city was able to meet its water needs from springs, shallow wells, and the remaining lake water. In the mid-nineteenth century, the residents of the city began taking water from the underlying aquifer. In the twentieth century, as water needs grew and supplies from the aquifer became inadequate, city authorities brought water up from two nearby river systems. Twenty-five years ago, they began piping in water from 80 miles (130 km) away. Because Mexico City is located on a highland, the water must all be pumped uphill at considerable expense. Related to the shortages is another problem: the city is sinking. Other cities around the world (such as Venice, Italy) are also experiencing this phenomenon, but the situation is most dramatic in Mexico City. Some neighborhoods are going down by as much as 15 inches (40 cm ) a year, or a total of about 30 feet (9.1 m) over the last century. The cause is simply the fact that water is being removed from the aquifers faster than it can be replaced by rainwater. As water ismoved, the spoogy soil rises up and becomes more compact, and the city slow settles down.
The effects are evident. Buildings and streets ha e been damaged by the uneven settling of the city, and so have the water and sewage systems. Since the city is now 6 feet below the level of nearby Lake Texcoco, flooding has become a frequent problem and because of the poor taste of the sewage systems, the flood waters are often full of untreated waste.

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.
The photograph shows a tall, blond young man holding what looks like a musical score. His eyes scared, his shoulders rounded and slightly turned away, he appeared to avoid contact with the camera. Found several weeks ago on a windy road beside the sea on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, England, he was dripping wet and apparently very disturbed. He would not answer questions or speak with anyone. He was wearing a black suit and a white shirt, but since all the labels had been mysteriously cut out from his clothes, authorities had no way of even identifying his nationality. Since then he has continued to remain silent, refusing or unable to give information about who he is or where he comes from. He was taken to the accident and emergency department at the Medway Maritime Hospital in Gillingham, but later was moved fo the psychiatric clinic in Dartford, where he continues to baffle doctors.
A spokesman for the hospital says that the first clue to his identity came when someone in the hospital had the idea of leaving him with a piece of paper and pencils and he drew a detailed sketch of a grand piano. Hospital staff then took him to the hospital’s chapel, which contains a piano. He sat appearing calm and relaxed for the first time since he had been found. According to reports from the hospital, he is also a good musician and a pleasure to listen to, even if he tends to play rather melancholy music. One staff member identified a piece from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, but acknowledged that she was not an expert in classical music.
According to a social worker assigned to the case, the young man is shy in the extreme and avoids any kind of social interaction. Though interpreters in various northern and central European languages have been called to the hospital to visit him, he has failed to respond to any of them. His photograph has been circulated in newspapers around the world. prompting hundreds of phone calls to the Missing Persons Bureau. However, none of these has provided useful information about his identity. There is, of course, the delicate question of whether the man is really in need of psychiatric care or just pretending to be ill. Doctors at the hospital say that they have no reason not to take him seriously and they have a duty to care for him as long as he needs it.

Câu 73: According to the passage, which of the following is NOT True?
Câu 74: What can be inferred from the fact that the police brought the man to the hospital?
Câu 75: What do the hospital staff think about the man?
