Chuyên đề rèn luyện kỹ năng đọc hiểu phục vụ ôn thi kỳ thi THPT QG và ôn thi HSG các cấp môn tiếng Anh Like theo dõi Fanpage tại: CHUYÊN ĐỀ RÈN LUYỆN KỸ NĂNG ĐỌC HIỂU TIẾNG ANH (Buổi 1) Read the following passage and choose the correct word or phrase that best fits each of the numbered blanks A trend that has emerged recently is the sharing of childcare (1) _ between husband and wife Young couples will try to arrange their work schedules so that they work opposite hours or shifts in order that one parent is always home with the children Since childcare is expensive, this saves money for the young couple trying to establish themselves and provide a secure environment for the family Husband and wife may also share household chores Some fathers are just as capable as mothers at cooking dinner, changing and bathing the baby, and doing the laundry In some cases, the woman’s salary is for family (2) _ and the father becomes the “househusband.” These cases are still fairly rare One positive trend, however, is that fathers seem to be spending more time with their children In a recent survey, 41% of the children sampled said they spend equal time with their mothers and fathers “This is one of our most significant cultural changes,” says Dr Leon Hoffman, who co-directs the Parent Child Center at the New York Psychoanalytic Society In practice, for over 30 years, Hoffman has found “a very dramatic difference in the involvement of the father in everything from care-taking to general decision (3) _ around kids' lives.” Another factor has recently been added to the childcare formula The number of people who work from home nearly full-time rose 23% from the last decade The (4) _ of technology - computers, faxes, teleconferencing - has made it easier for at-home workers to be constantly in touch Will this new flexibility in the workforce bring a positive change for the (5) _ of children? Only time will tell Question 1: A abilities B techniques C possibilities D responsibilities Question 2: A expenses B payment C fees D fares Question 3: A making B giving C creating D holding Question 4: A access B accessibility C accessible D accessibly Question 5: A well-being B interests C comfort D security Trang Like theo dõi Fanpage tại: Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the questions Quite different from storm surges are the giant sea waves called tsunamis, which derive their name from the Japanese expression for “high water in a harbour” These waves are also referred to by the general public as tidal waves, although they have relatively little to with tides Scientists often referred to them as seismic sea waves, far more appropriate in that they result from undersea seismic activity Tsunamis are caused when the sea bottom suddenly moves, during an underwater earthquake or volcano for example, and the water above the moving earth is suddenly displaced This sudden shift of water sets off a series of waves These waves can travel great distances at speeds close to 700 kilometres per hour In the open ocean, tsunamis have little noticeable amplitude, often no more than one or two meters It is when they hit the shallow waters near the coast that they increase in height, possibly up to 40 metres Tsunamis often occur in the Pacific because the Pacific is an area of heavy seismic activity Two areas of the Pacific well accustomed to the threat of tsunamis are Japan and Hawaii Because the seismic activity that causes tsunamis in Japan often occurs on the ocean bottom quite close to the islands, the tsunamis that hit Japan often come with little warning and can, therefore, prove disastrous Most of the tsunamis that hit the Hawaiian Islands, however, originate thousands of miles away near the coast of Alaska, so these tsunamis have a much greater distance to travel and the inhabitants of Hawaii generally have time for warning of their imminent arrival Tsunamis are certainly not limited to Japan and Hawaii In 1755, Europe experienced a calamitous tsunami, when movement along the fault lines near the Azores caused a massive tsunami to sweep onto the Portuguese coast and flood the heavily populated area around Lisbon The greatest tsunami on record occurred on the other side of the world in 1883 when the Krakatoa volcano underwent a massive explosion, sending waves more than 30 metres high onto nearby Indonesian islands; the tsunami from this volcano actually traveled around the world and was witnessed as far away as the English Channel Question 1: It can be inferred from the passage that tsunamis _ A generally reach heights greater than 40 metres B cause severe damage in the middle of the ocean C are often identified by ships on the ocean D are far more dangerous on the coast than in the open ocean Trang Like theo dõi Fanpage tại: Question 2: From the expression “on record”, it can be inferred that the tsunami that accompanied the Krakatoa volcano _ A was filmed as it was happening in Lisbon B was not as strong as the tsunami C might not be the greatest tsunami ever D occurred before efficient records were kept Question 3: According to the passage, all of the following are true about tidal waves EXCEPT that _ A they are the same as tsunamis B this terminology is not used by the scientific community C they are caused by sudden changes in high and low tides D they refer to the same phenomenon as seismic sea waves Question 4: The paragraph preceding this passage most probably discusses _ A tides B underwater earthquakes C tidal waves D storm surges Question 5: A main difference between tsunamis in Japan and in Hawaii is that tsunamis in Japan are more likely to _ A be less of a problem B originate in Alaska C come from greater distances D arrive without warning Question 6: The word “displaced” is closest in meaning to _ A not pleased B located C moved D filtered Question 7: A “calamitous” tsunami is one that is _ A expected B extremely calm C at fault D disastrous Question 8: The passage suggests that the tsunami resulting from the Krakatoa volcano _ A caused volcanic explosions in the English Channel B was unobserved outside of the Indonesian islands C was far more destructive close to the source than far away D resulted in little damage Trang ...Like theo dõi Fanpage tại: Read the following passage and choose the correct answer to each of the... coast than in the open ocean Trang Like theo dõi Fanpage tại: Question 2: From the expression “on record”, it can be inferred that the
