COULD COMPUTER GAMES BE GOOD FOR YOU AFTER ALL
In Britain, the average young person now spends more money on games each year than
on going to the cinema or renting videos. But is this 31 necessarily a bad thing? For years,
newspaper reports have been 32 saying that children who spend too much time playing computer
games become unsociable, bad- tempered, even violent as a 33 result. But new research, 34
carried out in both Europe and the USA, suggests that the opposite may be true.
Indeed, playing some of the more complicated games may help people of all ages to improve
certain skills. Researchers claim that this is because the games 35 make the brain work harder in
certain ways, like 36 noticing sounds and movements quickly and identifying what they are. The
fact that people play the games repeatedly 37 means that they get a lot of practice in these skills
which are therefore likely to become highly developed.
Social skills may benefit, too. Researchers in Chicago think that fans of first- person shooter
games (38 such as)
“Counterstrike” are better than non-players when it comes to building trust and co-operation, and
that this (39 helps )them to make good friendships and become strong members of their
communities. So rather than (40 giving) up computer games, perhaps young people need to
spend more time on them?
A. in order to
B. such as
C. due to
D. as well as
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 from 41 to 50
A number of factors related to the voice reveal the personality of the speaker.
The first is the broad area of communication, which includes imparting (truyền đạt)
information by use of language, communicating with a group or an individual and specialized
communication through performance. A person conveys thoughts and ideas through choice of
words, by a tone of voice that is pleasant or unpleasant, gentle or harsh (chua, chói), by the
rhythm that is inherent within the language itself, and by speech rhythms that are flowing and
regular or uneven and hesitant, and finally, by the pitch and melody of the utterance. When
speaking before a group, a person's tone may indicate uncertainty or fright, confidence or calm.
At interpersonal levels, the tone may reflect ideas and feelings over and above the words chosen,
or may belie them. Here the participant’s tone can consciously or unconsciously reflect intuitive
(trực giác) sympathy or antipathy, lack of concern or interest, fatigue, anxiety, enthusiasm or
excitement, all of which are .usually discernible (nhận rõ) by the acute listener. Public
performance is a manner of communication that is highly specialized with its own techniques for
obtaining effects by voice and /or gesture. The motivation derived from the text, and in the case
of singing, the music, in combination with the performer's skills, personality, and ability to create
empathy will determine the success of artistic, political, or pedagogic (sư phạm) communication.
Second, the voice gives psychological clues to a person's self-image, perception of others, and
emotional health. Self-image can be indicated by a tone of voice that is confident, pretentious,
shy, aggressive, outgoing, or exuberant (cới mở), to name only a few personality traits. Also the
sound may give a clue to the facade or mask of that person, for example, a shy person hiding
behind an overconfident front. How a speaker perceives the listener's receptiveness, interest, or
sympathy in any given conversation can drastically (mạnh mẽ) alter the tone of presentation, by
encouraging or discouraging the speaker. Emotional health is evidenced in the voice by free and
melodic sounds of the happy, by constricted (hẹp hòi) and harsh sound of the angry, and by dull
and lethargic (thờ ơ) qualities of the depressed.

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 from 56 - 64
Butterflies are among the most extensively studied insects - an estimated 90 percent of
the world's species have scientific names. As a consequence, they are perhaps the best group of
insects for examining patterns of terrestrial biotic diversity and distribution. Butterflies also have
a favorable image with the general public. Hence, they are an excellent group for communicating
information on science and conservation issues such as diversity.
Perhaps the aspect of butterfly diversity that has received the most attention over the past century
is the striking difference in species richness between tropical and temperate regions.
For example, in 1875 one biologist pointed out the diversity of butterflies in the Amazon
when he mentioned that about 700 species were found within an hour's walk, whereas the total
number found on the British islands did not exceed 66, and the whole of Europe supported only
321. This early comparison of tropical and temperate butterfly richness has been well confirmed.
A general theory of diversity would have to predict not only this difference between
temperate and tropical zones, but also patterns within each region, and how these patterns vary
among different animal and plant groups. However, for butterflies, variation of species richness
within temperate or tropical regions, rather man between them, is poorly understood. Indeed,
comparisons of numbers of species among the Amazon basin, tropical Asia, and Africa are still
mostly "personal communication" citations, even for vertebrates, In other words, unlike
comparison between temperate and tropical areas, these patterns are still in the documentation
In documenting geographical variation in butterfly diversity, some arbitrary, practical
decisions are made. Diversity, number of species, and species richness are used synonymously;
little is known about the evenness of butterfly distribution. The New World butterflies make up
the preponderance of examples because they are the most familiar species. It is hoped that by
focusing on them, the errors generated by imperfect and incomplete taxonomy will be minimized.
