Toefl reading comprehension
Glass is a remarkable substance made from the simplest raw materials. It can be colored or colorless,
monochrome or polychrome, transparent, translucent, or opaque. It is lightweight impermeable to liquids,
readily cleaned and reused, durable yet fragile, and often very beautiful Glass can be decorated in multiple
ways and its optical properties are exceptional. In all its myriad forms - as table ware, containers, in
architecture and design - glass represents a major achievement in the history of technological developments.
Since the Bronze Age about 3,000 B.C., glass has been used for making various kinds of objects. It
was first made from a mixture of silica, line and an alkali such as soda or potash, and these remained the
basic ingredients of glass until the development of lead glass in the seventeenth century. When heated, the
mixture becomes soft and malleable and can be formed by various techniques into a vast array of shapes
and sizes. The homogeneous mass thus formed by melting then cools to create glass, but in contrast to most
materials formed in this way (metals, for instance), glass lacks the crystalline structure normally associated
with solids, and instead retains the random molecular structure of a liquid. In effect, as molten glass cools,
it progressively stiffens until rigid, but does so without setting up a network of interlocking crystals
customarily associated with that process. This is why glass shatters so easily when dealt a blow. Why glass
deteriorates over time, especially when exposed to moisture, and why glassware must be slowly reheated
and uniformly cooled after manufacture to release internal stresses induced by uneven cooling.

VnDoc - Tải tài liệu, văn bản pháp luật, biểu mẫu miễn phí
Another unusual feature of glass is the manner in which its viscosity changes as it turns from a cold
substance into a hot, ductile liquid. Unlike metals that flow or "freeze" at specific temperatures glass
progressively softens as the temperature rises, going through varying stages of malleability until it flows
like thick syrup. Each stage of malleability allows the glass to be manipulated into various forms, by
different techniques, and if suddenly cooled the object retains the shape achieved at that point.
Glass is thus amenable to a greater number of heat-forming techniques than most other materials.
Question 21. Why does the author list the characteristics of glass in lines 1-5?
A. To demonstrate how glass evolved

B. To show the versatility of glass

C. To explain glassmaking technology

D. To explain the purpose of each component

of glass
Question 22. The word "durable"' in line 3 is closest in meaning to_____.
A. lasting

B. delicate

C. heavy

D. Plain

Question 23. What does the author imply about the raw materials used to make glass?
A. They were the same for centuries. B. They are liquid C. They are transparent D. They are
very heavy.
Question 24. According to the passage, how is glass that has cooled and become rigid different from most
other rigid substances? A. It has an interlocking crystal network. B. It has an unusually low melting
C. It has varying physical properties.

D. It has a random molecular structure.

Question 25. The word "customarily" in line 16 is closest in meaning to_____.
A. naturally

B. necessarily

C. usually

D. certainly

Question 26. The words "exposed to" in line 18 are closest in meaning to_____.
A. hardened by

B. chilled with

C. subjected to

D. deprived of

Question 27. What must be done to release the internal stresses that build up in glass products during
A. the glass must be reheated and evenly cooled.
B. B. the glass must be cooled quickly.
C. The glass must be kept moist until cooled.
D. The glass must be shaped to its desired form immediately

Read the following passage on commuting, and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to
indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 6 to 15.
Commuting is the practice of travelling a long distance to a town or city to work each day, and then
travelling home again in the evening. The word commuting comes from commutation ticket, a US rail
ticket for repeated journeys, called a season ticket in Britain. Regular travellers are called commuters.
The US has many commuters. A few, mostly on the East Coast, commute by train or subway, but
most depend on the car. Some leave home very early to avoid the traffic jams, and sleep in their cars until
their office opens. Many people accept a long trip to work so that they can live in quiet bedroom
communities away from the city, but another reason is ‘white flight’. In the 1960s most cities began to
desegregate their schools, so that there were no longer separate schools for white and black children. Many
white families did not want to send their children to desegregated schools, so they moved to the suburbs,
which have their own schools, and where, for various reasons, few black people live.
Millions of people in Britain commute by car or train. Some spend two or three hours a day
travelling, so that they and their families can live in suburbia or in the countryside. Cities are surrounded by
commuter belts. Part of the commuter belt around London is called the stockbroker belt because it contains
houses where rich business people live. Some places are becoming dormitory towns, because people sleep
there but take little part in local activities.

VnDoc - Tải tài liệu, văn bản pháp luật, biểu mẫu miễn phí
Most commuters travel to and from work at the same time, causing the morning and evening rush
hours, when buses and trains are crowded and there are traffic jams on the roads. Commuters on trains
rarely talk to each other and spend their journey reading, sleeping or using their mobile phones, though this
is not popular with other passengers. Increasing numbers of people now work at home some days of the
week, linked to their offices by computer, a practice called telecommuting.
Cities in both Britain and the US are trying to reduce the number of cars coming into town each day.
Some companies encourage car pooling (called car sharing in Britain), an arrangement for people who live
and work near each other to travel together. Some US cities have a public service that helps such people to
contact each other, and traffic lanes are reserved for car-pool vehicles. But cars and petrol/gas are cheap in
the US, and many people prefer to drive alone because it gives them more freedom. In Britain many cities
have park-and-ride schemes, car parks on the edge of the city from which buses take drivers into the centre.
(Extracted from Oxford Guide to British and American Culture, Oxford University Press, 2000)
Question 46: Which of the following definitions of commuting would the author of this passage most
probably agree with? A. Travelling to work and then home again in a day within a rural district.
B. Travelling for hours from a town or city to work in the countryside every day.
C. Regularly travelling a long distance between one’s place of work and one’s home.
D. Using a commutation ticket for special journeys in all seasons of the year.

A. buying a season ticket again.
C. saying something again.

B. happening again and again.
D. doing something once again.

II. TOPIC: Write an essay to discuss the benefits of doing exercise.
Health is considered to be the most valuable thing one possesses. Improving health is always a
prior task in one’s daily routine. And the simplest, cheapest, but the most effective way to better one’s
health is doing regular exercise.
One advantage of doing exercise is to reduce stress. People who exercise are likely to feel more
relaxed, healthier, and of course happier. Doing regular exercise helps the body produce happy chemicals
that make the exercisers reduce the worries about life and work as well as forget the boredom and
Another benefit exercising brings us is that we will feel more energetic to face and overcome our
daily difficulties. Doing exercise helps us reduce the possibilities of being ill, protects us from some fatal
diseases as heart disease, cancers and diabetes. Regular exercisers are believed to have healthier, happier
and longer lives. The other good thing is that doing exercise helps us feel more self-confident. We know
exactly what we can do or what abilities, talents we have. We will think positively, do confidently, and lead
an optimistic life if we practice exercising regularly. Controlling our weight effectively is another value.
Perspiration occurs when we exercise, which helps our bodies get rid of bad things inside. Fats are burnt
during our practicing exercise, which helps us to keep fit.
To sum up, doing exercise enables people to have good body-buildings, keep fit and brings
exercisers many benefits. Sparing time doing exercise will ensure us a longer, healthier and happier life.

II. TOPIC: Write about a sporting event you saw recently.
Last Sunday at our school football field, a friendly football match was held. Our school Female
Students’ Football Team played against the neighboring school’s one.
It was a really nice Sunday morning then. The football field where the match took place was
previously well-decorated. Red flags could be seen along the roads from our school gate passing the school
play-ground to the gym then to the football ground, together with numerous slogans, posters, and of course
pictures of the two teams and individual players. Then came the most important moment of the day when
the two teams entered the field from the changing rooms, following the two headmasters of the two schools,
and the referees. Spectators all burst into applauses to welcome the players. As soon as the game began,
spectators started cheering and shouting for one side or the other. Others sang and danced, some even
called out the players’ names with love and pride. The crowd kept discussing and commentating happily.
On the first half, our team played much better to score two goal to lead the guest. The football field seemed
to be filled with applauses and bravos when the first and then the second goal were scored by the two
different home strikers. The players of the two teams played so well that it made spectators forget the time
as the referee blew his whistle to finish the first half. When the second half came the guest players played
much better and scored a goal. The players still played enthusiastically but no more goal was scored. The
match ended with the winning score of 2-1 for the home team.

It was a very happy weekend day for us all and it was, in my opinion, the best game I have ever watched.
We all agreed that such sporting event brought us closer together, made us feel relaxed and we very much
felt confident and proud of our school.

Today’s cars are smaller, safer, cleaner, and more economical than their predecessors, but the car of the
future will be far more pollution-free than those on the road today. Several new types of automobile
engines have already been developed than run on alternative sources of power, such as electricity,
compressed natural gas, methanol, steam, hydrogen, and propane. Electricity, however, is the only zeroemission option presently available.
Although electric vehicles will not be truly practical until a powerful, compact battery or other
dependable source of current is available, transport experts foresee a new assortment of electric vehicles
entering everyday life: shorter-range commuter electric cars, three-wheeled neighborhood cars, electric
delivery vans, bikes and trolleys.
As automakers work to develop practical electrical vehicles, urban planners and utility engineers are
focusing on infrastructure systems to support and make the best use of the new cars. Public charging

facilities will need to be as common as today’s gas stations. Public parking spots on the street or in
commercial lots will need to be equipped with devices that allow drivers to charge their batteries while they
stop, dine, or attend a concert. To encourage the use of electric vehicles, the most convenient parking in
transportation centers might be reserved for electric cars.
Planners foresee electric shuttle buses, trains, buses and neighborhood vehicles all meeting at transit
centers that would have facilities for charging and renting. Commuters will be able to rent a variety of
electric cars to suit their needs: light trucks, one-person three-wheelers, small cars, or electric/gasoline
hybrid cars for longer trips, which will no doubt take place on automated freeways capable of handling five
times the number of vehicles that can be carried by freeway today.

A pilot cannot fly by sight alone. In many conditions, such as flying at night and landing in dense fog, a
pilot must use radar, an alternative way of navigating. Since human eyes are not very good at determining
speeds of approaching objects, radar can show a pilot how fast nearby planes are moving. The basic
principle of radar is exemplified by what happens when one shouts in a cave. The echo of the sounds
against the walls helps a person determine the size of the cave. With radar, however, the waves are radio
waves instead of sound waves. Radio waves travel at the speed of light, about 300,000 kilometers in one
second. A radar set sends out a short burst of radio waves. Then it receives the echoes produced when the
waves bounce off objects. By determining the time it takes for the echoes to return to the radar set, a
trained technician can determine the distance between the radar set and other objects. The word “radar”, in
fact, gets its name from the term “radio detection and ranging”. “Ranging” is the term for detection of the
distance between an object and the radar set. Besides being of critical importance to pilots, radar is
essential for air traffic control, tracking ships at sea, and for tracking weather systems and storms.
Câu 51: What is the main topic of this passage?
A. The nature of radar. B. History of radar.

C. Alternatives to radar.

D. Types of ranging.
Câu 52: According to the passage, what can radar detect besides location of objects?
A. Shape.

B. Size.

C. Speed.

D. Weight.

A. “specified”

B. “resembled”

C. “illustrated”

D. “justified”

Câu 54: The word “shouts” in the passage most closely means _______.
A. “exclaims”

B. “yells”

C. “shoots”

D. “whispers”

Câu 55: Which of the following words best describes the tone of this passage?
A. argumentative

B. explanatory

C. humorous

D. imaginative

Câu 56: According to the passage, the distance between a radar set and an object can be determined by
A. the time it takes for a burst of radio waves to produce echoes when the waves bounce off the
B. the term “ranging” used for detection of the distance between an object and the radar set
C. the time it takes for the radio waves to produce echoes and bounce off the object

II. TOPIC: Write an essay to discuss the opinion that arts should or shouldn’t be taught in high schools.
There have existed debates whether arts be taught in high schools. People who support the ideals
find it necessary that high school students know as much about arts as possible. In contrast, the protestors
think teaching arts to high school students is really a waste of time and money.
It is generally said by the supporters that studying arts benefits high school students several ways.
The first good thing is that arts help students have background knowledge of not only the nation but the
world cultures and history. Another benefit is that arts equip students with many necessary skills such as;
creative thinking, observing, problem solving, and critical thinking. People who want arts to be taught to
high school students also agree that arts are very fun and interesting to learn. We can say in other words
arts are attractive to any learners. The other advantage of arts is that learning arts help students to build
team spirit and community as art activities can be done in groups. Moreover, arts enable students to
socialize and students become more and more civilized and responsible.
In contrast, protestors believe that there is not enough time for teachers to cover all kinds of
subjects at school. So they should focus on core subjects like Maths, foreign languages and physics, etc. to
save time and money arts should only be elective, not compulsory subjects. Furthermore, students can learn
more about arts via media and arts are then their leisure activities. Additionally, arts, in the protestors’
opinion, should be taught by parents as they may understand their children’s ability and talents better.
To conclude, there are different opinions that arts should or shouldn’t be taught in high schools.
Each side has reasonable explanations to convince and prove the points of view. For me, we can hardly be
civilized without knowledge of arts. Sooner or later, in my opinion, arts should be taught to students to help
them enrich their knowledge, to discover their talents to better their own lives.
