One of the most dangerous drugs for pregnant women to consume is alcohol. Because alcohol
is delivered quickly into the blood and passes quickly into the tissues and membranes, the human
fetus is particularly vulnerable to its effects. The reality is that the negative effects on a fetus are
so pronounced that babies born after exposure to alcohol are said to be suffering from fetal
alcohol syndrome. As a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, the alcohol is passed into her
bloodstream almost simultaneously. Moreover, because the bloodstream of the fetus is
inextricably tied to that of the mother, the alcohol passes directly into the bloodstream of the
fetus as well. And, what is more, the concentration of alcohol in the fetus is exactly the same as in
the mother.
For the mother, this concentration is not a problem because her liver can remove one ounce
of alcohol from her system per hour. However, the fetus's liver is not completely developed (how
developed it is depends on its stage of development). The rate at which it is able to eliminate the
alcohol from the blood of the fetus is much slower. Eventually, the alcohol will be returned to the
mother's system by passing across the placenta, but this process is slow. By the time this takes
place, major neurological damage may have already occurred.
Research has shown that as little as one drink of alcohol can produce significant, irreversible
damage to the fetus. Babies born after exposure to alcohol generally exhibit facial distortion,
inability to concentrate, and difficulty in remembering. Simply speaking, it is imperative that
pregnant women avoid alcohol.

A. Women and drugs B. The fetus and alcohol

Question 4. In line 3 the word "its" refers to__________
A. the fetus B. the alcohol C. the tissue D. the blood
Question 5. In line 4, the word "pronounced" most closely means_________
A. spoken B. evident C. described D. unfortunate
Question 6. In line 7 the word "inextricably" most nearly means__________
A. unexplainedly B. inseparably C. forcefully D. formerly
Question 7. According to the passage, how does the concentration of alcohol in a fetus compare
to that in the mother?
A. The concentration is more. B. The concentration cannot be measured.
C. The concentration is less. D. The concentration is equivalent.
Question 8. According to the passage, how is alcohol finally returned to the mother's system?
A. it is not completely returned. B. it is expelled by the fetus's liver.
Trang 2/5 - Mã đề: 143
C. it is transferred across the placenta. D. it is carried through the bloodstream.
Question 9. Which one of the following was NOT mentioned as a sign of fetal alcohol syndrome?

C. increased aggression D. memory problems

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 10 to 17.

After 1785, the production of children's books in the Untied States increased but remained
largely reprints of British books, often those published by John Newbery, the first publisher to
produce books aimed primarily at diverting a child audience. Ultimately, however, it was not the
cheerful, commercial-minded Newbery, but Anglo-Irish author Maria Edgeworth who had the
strongest influence on this period of American children's literature. The eighteenth century had
seen a gradual shift away from the spiritual intensity of earlier American religious writings for
children, toward a more generalized moralism. Newbery notwithstanding, Americans still
looked on children's books as vehicles for instruction, not amusement, though they would accept
a moderate amount of fictional entertainment for the sake of more successful instruction. As the
children's book market expanded, then, what both public and publishers wanted was the kind of
fiction Maria Edgeworth wrote: stories interesting enough to attract children and morally
instructive enough to allay adult distrust of fiction.
American reaction against imported books for children set in after the War of 1812 with the
British. A wave of nationalism permeated everything, and the self-conscious new nation found
foreign writings (particularly those from the British monarchy) unsuitable for the children of a
democratic republic, a slate of self-governing, equal citizens. Publishers of children's books began
to encourage American writers to write for American children. When they responded, the pattern
established by Maria Edgeworth was at hand, attractive to most of them for both its rationalism
and its high moral tone. Early in the 1820's, stories of willful children learning to obey, of careless
children learning to take care, of selfish children learning to "tire for others," started to flow from
American presses, successfully achieving Edgeworth's tone, though rarely her lively style.
Imitative as they were, these early American stories wee quite distinguishable from their British
counterparts. Few servants appeared in them, and if class distinctions had by no means
disappeared, there was much democratic insistence on the worthiness of every level of birth and
work. The characters of children in this fiction were serious, conscientious, self-reflective, and
independent-testimony to the continuing influence of the earlier American moralistic tradition
in children's books.

Question 10. What does the passage mainly discuss?


A. Basic differences between British and American literature for children
B. Successful publishers of children's books in Britain and North America
C. The development of children's literature in the United States
D. The career of Maria Edgeworth as an author of children's books

reasons?
A. He had more influence on children American children's literature than any other publisher
B. He published books aimed at amusing children rather than instructing them.

D. He produced and sold books written by Maria Edgeworth.

A. as a part of B. as a result of C. in addition to D. in spite of
Question 13. The word "they" in line 8 refers to________
