correct answer to each ofthe questions from 16 to 55.
A rather surprising geographical feature of Antarctica is that a huge fresh water lake, one of the
world's largest and deepest, lies hidden there, under four kilometers of ice. Now known as Lake Vostok.
This huge body of water is located under the ice block that comprises Antarctica. The lake is able to exist
in its unfrozen state beneath this block of ice because its waters are warmed by geothermal heat from the
earth's core. The thick glacier above Lake Vostok actually insulates it from the frigid temperatures on the
surface.
The lake was first discovered in the 1970s while a research team was conducting an aerial survey
of the area. Radio waves from the survey equipment penetrated the ice and revealed a body of water of
indeterminate size. It was not until much more recently that data collected by satellite made scientists
aware of the tremendous size of the lake: the satellite-borne radar detected an extremely flat region where
the ice remains level because it is floating on the water of the lake.
The discovery of such a huge freshwater lake trapped under Antarctica is of interest to the
scientific community because of the potential that the lake contains ancient microbes that have survived
for thousands upon thousands of years unaffected by factors such as nuclear fallout and elevated
ultraviolet light that have affected organisms in more exposed areas. The downside of the discovery,
however, lies in the difficulty of conducting, research on the lake in such a harsh climate and in the
problems associated with obtaining uncontaminated samples from the lake without actually exposing the
lake to contamination. Scientists are looking for possible ways to accomplish this.
Question 46: The word hidden in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to..
A. undrinkable

A. It is completely frozen.

B. It is a saltwater lake.

C. It is beneath a thick slab of ice.

D. It is heated by the sun.

A. Extremely cold.

B. Easily broken.

C. Quite harsh.

D. Lukewarm.

Question 49: All ol the following are true about the 1970 survey of Antarctica EXCEPT that it
A. was conducted by air
B. made use of radio waves
C. could not determine the lake's exact size

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 to 65.
Psychologists have debated a long time about whether a child's upbringing can give it the ability
to do outstandingly well. Some think that it is impossible to develop genius and say that it is simply

_______________________________________________________________________

Kho Luyn gii mn Ting Anh C V Mai Phng


something a person is born with. Others, however, argue that the potential for great achievement can be
developed. The truth lies somewhere between these two extremes.
It seems very obvious that being born with the right qualities from gifted parents will increase a
child's ability to do well. However, this ability will be fully realized only with the right upbringing and
opportunities. As one psychologist says, "To have a fast car, you need both a good engine and fuel."
Scientists have recently assessed intelligence, achievement, and ability in 50 sets of identical
twins that were separated shortly after birth and brought up by different parents. They found that
achievement was based on intelligence, and later influenced by the child's environment.
One case involving very intelligent twins was quoted. One of' the twins received a normal
upbringing, and performed well. The other twin, however, was brought up by extremely supportive
parents and given every possible opportunity to develop its abilities. That twin, though starting out with
the Same degree of intelligence as the other, performed even better. This case reflects the general
principle of intelligence and ability. The more favorable the environment, the more a child's intelligence
and ability are developed. However, there is no link between intelligence and the socio-economic level of
a child's family. In other words, it does not matter how poor or how rich a family is, as this does not affect
intelligence.
Gifted people cannot be created by supportive parents, but they can be developed by them. One
professor of music said that outstanding musicians usually started two or three years earlier than ordinary
performers, often because their parents had recognized their ability. These musicians then needed at least
ten years' hard work and training in order to reach the level they were capable of attaining.
People who want to have very gifted children are given the following advice:
Marry an intelligent person.
Allow children to follow their own interests rather than the interests of the parents.
Start a child's education early but avoid pushing the child too hard.
Encourage children to play; for example, playing with musical instruments is essential for a
child who wants to become an outstanding musician.
Question 56: The upbringing of highly intelligent children requires.
A. an expensive education
B. good musical instruments
C. parental support and encouragement
D. wealthy and loving parents
