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.
Archaeologists have found the earliest known evidence of a special connection between humans and cats. Last month in Cyprus they discovered the grave of a 30-year-old villager who died 9,500 years ago. With the body, they found jewelry, seashells, and other items. Less than a meter (3 feet) away, in another grave almost certainly made at the same time, lay the bones of a young cat. Cat bones have been found before near early human settlements, but scientists believe they belonged to wild cats. These cats probably stayed around human villages to catch the mice and rats attracted by the supplies of food.
The new find on Cyprus, however, seems to indicate that the cats in this village were tamed and had some special role to play in human activities or a special relationship with certain individuals. These bones showed no signs of having been butchered for eating. And since they were in the right places in the skeleton, the animal must have been buried soon after death; otherwise, the bones would have been taken by other animals. Other animals were tamed before cats. The first dogs (actually a type of wolf) are known to have lived with humans as early as 15,000 years ago. Their importance in early human settlements is shown by the evidence of dog graves from 12,500 years ago in Israel.
The goat was probably the first animal to produce milk for humans, around 10,000 years ago. But until now, the first evidence of household cats came from Egypt only 4,000 years ago. The discovery of the skeleton of this cat, which had clearly been handled with care, is very exciting for archaeologists.

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 .
Only three and a half years passed between the first moon landing in 1969 and the sixth and last moon landing in 1972. But while the first landing was an enormous achievement in itself, the last landing contributed far more to the advancement of scientific knowledge. On the first mission, the two astronauts were on the Moon for only a few hours and remained close to the landing site. Their time on the Moon was just sufficient to conduct several experiments and collect a small sample of lunar rocks. On the last mission, however, the three men spent much more time on the lunar surface – three periods of about seven hours. With their special moon vehicle, they could travel much further from the landing site to investigate more of the lunar environment and collect a wider range of soil and rock sample.
The Apollo moon landings, may not have led to any great discovery it did have a significant impact on scientific and technological development in the twentieth century. One field that was undoubtedly affected by the moon landings was computer research. NASA, the U.S space agency, did not invent the integrated, but it was the largest single connsumer of integrated circuits in the early 1960s. Working for the space program undoubtedly motivated computer engineers, pushing them toward the development of today's personal computer. Another, related technological development that could be attributed at least in part to the Apollo program was the invention of the Internet. In this case, too, the moors landings served as an indirect motivation for scientists and engineers in their search for ways to communicate from computers in spacecrarft to computers on Earth.
A - In planning for ífuture lunar missions, scientists are faced with one serious limitation to human exploration on the Moon, and that is the lack of water. B - The availability of water would make an enormous difference for humans working on the Moon for any length of time. The search for water, then, remains a high priority for space scientists. One technique that they have used is to send rockets crashing into the lunar surface. The crash treates a cloud of vapor and dust that scientists can collect and analyze for evidence of water. C - Several rockets have already been sent to the Moon, but so far the results have not been conclusive. Another larger and heavier rocket, which will be sent to the moon in 2010, will have a greater impact and may produce different results. D
Câu 71: What can be inferred about the difference between the first and the second moon landing?
Câu 72: What could the astronauts do in the second landing that they could not do in the first one?
Câu 73: What is considered the biggest contribution of the Apollo moon landings?
Câu 74: How does the author describe the impact of moon landings on computer research?
Câu 75: Which of the following is NOT True about NASA in 1960s?
Câu 76: How were computer engineers motivated to develop personal computer?
Câu 77: Apart from the development of personal computer, what is the Apollo program credited with?
Câu 78: What remains a great concern for space scientists?
Câu 79: What can be said about the availability of water on the moon?
Câu 80: Where does the following sentence best fit in the passage? With the data from this larger rocket blast, scientists hope establish conclusively the presence or absence of water on the Moon.
