or creatures lacking a spinal column (including crustaceans, insects, and many different types of worms) - make their livings directly at the expense of other creatures In the face of this onslaught, living things have evolved a variety of defense mechanisms for protecting their bodies from invasion by other organisms Certain fungi and even some kinds of bacteria secrete substances known as antibiotics into their external environment These substances are capable of killing or inhibiting the growth of various kinds of bacteria that also occupy the area, thereby eliminating or reducing the competition for nutrients The same principle is used in defense against invaders in other groups of organisms For example, when attacked by disease - causing fungi or bacteria, many kinds of plants produce chemicals that help to ward off the invaders Members of the animal kingdom have developed a variety of defense mechanisms for dealing with parasites Although these mechanisms vary considerably, all major groups of animals are capable of detecting and reacting to the presence of "foreign" cells In fact, throughout the animal kingdom, from sponges to certain types of worms, shellfish, and all vertebrates (creatures possessing a spinal column), there is evidence that transplants of cells or fragments of tissues into an animal are accepted only if they come from genetically compatible or closely related individuals The ability to distinguish between "self" and "nonself", while present in all animals, is most efficient among vertebrates, which have developed an immune system as their defense mechanism The immune system recognizes and takes action against foreign invaders and transplanted tissues that are treated as foreign cells Trang 2/22 Question 33: The word "intricate" in line is closest in meaning to A widespread B difficult C complex D critical Question 34: The expression "an army" in line most likely means A an illness B an attack C a large number D a distinct type Question 35: According to the passage, some organisms produce antibiotics in order to A prevent disease in humans B aid digestion C fight off other organisms D create new types of nutrients Question 36: The paragraph following the passage most probably discusses A how the immune system in vertebrates fights off foreign cells B different types of bacteria and lung C how vertebrates and invertebrates differ D examples of different groups of organisms Question 37: All of the following are defined in the passage EXCEPT A parasites (line 3) B invertebrates (line 5) C nutrients (line 10) D vertebrates (line 16) Question 38: The word "they" in line 17 refers to A individuals B vertebrates C transplants D sponges, worms and shellfish Question 39: According to the passage, a transplant of tissue between genetically incompatible organisms will result in the transplanted tissue A becoming a parasite B being treated as an invader C developing a new immune system D altering its genetic makeup Question 40: What does the passage mainly discuss? A how antibiotics work to cure disease B how organisms react to invaders C how the immune systems of vertebrates developed D how parasites reproduce Question 41: The word "vary" in line 14 could best be replaced by “ ” A endure B differ C balance D contribute Question 42: According to the passage, the ability to distinguish between "self" and "nonself" enables vertebrates to A detect and react to invasion B get rid of antibiotics C accept transplanted cells D weaken their immune system Mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the word that is closest in meaning to the underlined part in each of the following questions Question 43: “Oh no!

On my desk at home, I have a collection of souvenirs; objects that remind me of places I’ve visited and important events in my life These objects include a model boat that I saw being (56) _ from a piece of wood on a Caribbean island, a piece of lava that (57) _ hot from a volcano in the year I was born, and a shell picked up on my favourite childhood beach (58) everything else, from which memory and detail fades, it is as if the longer you hold on to certain objects, the (59) their associations with the past become, and the sharper the recollections that gather around them They are, (60) , real souvenirs, encapsulations not only of the place, but of your time in the place But these days, the term “real souvenirs” sounds like a contradiction in (61) , and this is because the objects sold to tourists as souvenirs are often cheap mass-produced imports that have nothing to (62) _ with the place at all It’s often the case that the best souvenirs, like my shell, are found rather than purchased, but (63) for souvenirs can also be a fun holiday activity But if you are buying souvenirs on holiday this summer, make sure they (64) the reality test A good souvenir is not just made in the area where it is bought, it also says something about the culture of that area It is something made by local people using sustainable local materials, and because you are effectively supporting the local economy, it shouldn’t (65) too cheap, either Question 56: Question 57: Question 58: Question 59: Question 60: Question 61: Question 62: Question 63: Question 64: Question 65: A sketched A emerged A Opposite A harder A albeit A terms A gain A browsing A win A cost B thrown B developed B Unlike B wider B therefore B meanings B B seeking B take B come C scratched C arrived C Different C larger C whereas C words C make C surfing C beat C go D carved D appeared D Dissimilar D greater D otherwise D names D get D pursuing D pass D charge 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 A useful definition of an air pollutant is a compound added directly or indirectly by humans to the atmosphere in such quantities as to affect humans, animals vegetations, or materials adversely Air pollution requires a very flexible definition that permits continuous change When the first air pollution laws were established in England in the fourteenth century, air pollutants were limited to compounds that could be seen or smelled - a far cry from the extensive list of harmful Trang 4/22 substances known today As technology has developed and knowledge of the health aspects of various chemicals has increased, the list of air pollutants has lengthened In the future, even water vapor might be considered an air pollutant under certain conditions Many of the more important air pollutants, such as sulfur oxides, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides, are found in nature As the Earth developed, the concentrations of these pollutants were altered by various chemical reactions; they became components in biogeochemical cycle These serve as an air purification scheme by allowing the compounds to move from the air to the water or soil on a global basis, nature's output of these compounds dwarfs that resulting form human activities However, human production usually occurs in a localized area, such as a city In this localized regions, human output may be dominant and may temporarily overload the natural purification scheme of the cycle The result is an increased concentration of noxious chemicals in the air The concentrations at which the adverse effects appear will be greater than the concentrations that the pollutants would have in the absence of human activities The actual concentration need not be large for a substance to be a pollutant; in fact the numerical value tells us little until we know how much of an increase this represents over the concentration that would occur naturally in the area For example, sulfur dioxide has detectable health effects at 0.08 parts per million (ppm), which is about 400 times its natural level Carbon monoxide, however, has a natural level of 0.1 ppm and is not usually a pollutant until its level reaches about 15 ppm Question 66: The word "altered" in line refers to A eliminated B caused C slowed D changed Question 67: What does the passage mainly discuss?

A It will damage areas outside of the localized regions B It can overwhelm the natural system that removes pollutants C It can be dwarfed by nature's output of pollutants in the localized region D It will react harmfully with naturally occurring pollutants Question 71: The word "adversely" in line is closest in meaning to A considerably B admittedly C quickly D negatively Question 72: Natural pollutants can play an important role in controlling air pollution for which of the following reasons? A They are less harmful to living beings than are other pollutants B They have existed since the Earth developed C They function as part of a purification process D They occur in greater quantities than other pollutants Question 73: It can be inferred from the first paragraph that A water vapor is an air pollutant in localized areas B the definition of air pollution will continue to change C a substance becomes an air pollutant only in cities D most air pollutants today can be seen or smelled Question 74: Which of the following is best supported by the passage? A To effectively control pollution local government should regularly review their air pollution laws B One of the most important steps in preserving natural lands is to better enforce air pollution laws C Scientists should be consulted in order to establish uniform limits for all air pollutants D Human activities have been effective in reducing air pollution Question 75: According to the passage, the numerical valued of the concentration level of a substance is only useful if A the other substances in the area are known B it is in a localized area C the naturally occurring level is also known D it can be calculated quickly Mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the word that differs from the rest in the position of the main stress in each of the following questions Question 76: Question 77: Question 78: Question 79: Question 80: A accessible A identify A delicacy A acrobat A technological B apprenticeship B integrity B deliberate B accurate B personality C apprehension C intimate C demonstrate C ancestor C representative D alternative D interior D desperate D accelerate D environmental - THE END -Trang 5/22 SỞ GD&ĐT QUẢNG BÌNH TRƯỜNG THPT CHUYÊN ĐỀ THI THỬ ĐẠI HỌC LẦN NĂM 2012 Môn: TIẾNG ANH; Khối D Thời gian làm bài : 90 phút, khơng kể thời gian phát đề ĐỀ CHÍNH THỨC (Đề thi có 05 trang) Mã đề thi 209 Họ, tên thí sinh: Số báo danh: ĐỀ THI GỒM 80 CÂU (TỪ QUESTION ĐẾN QUESTION 80) 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 A useful definition of an air pollutant is a compound added directly or indirectly by humans to the atmosphere in such quantities as to affect humans, animals vegetations, or materials adversely Air pollution requires a very flexible definition that permits continuous change When the first air pollution laws were established in England in the fourteenth century, air pollutants were limited to compounds that could be seen or smelled - a far cry from the extensive list of harmful substances known today As technology has developed and knowledge of the health aspects of various chemicals has increased, the list of air pollutants has lengthened In the future, even water vapor might be considered an air pollutant under certain conditions Many of the more important air pollutants, such as sulfur oxides, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides, are found in nature As the Earth developed, the concentrations of these pollutants were altered by various chemical reactions; they became components in biogeochemical cycle These serve as an air purification scheme by allowing the compounds to move from the air to the water or soil on a global basis, nature's output of these compounds dwarfs that resulting form human activities However, human production usually occurs in a localized area, such as a city In this localized regions, human output may be dominant and may temporarily overload the natural purification scheme of the cycle The result is an increased concentration of noxious chemicals in the air The concentrations at which the adverse effects appear will be greater than the concentrations that the pollutants would have in the absence of human activities The actual concentration need not be large for a substance to be a pollutant; in fact the numerical value tells us little until we know how much of an increase this represents over the concentration that would occur naturally in the area For example, sulfur dioxide has detectable health effects at 0.08 parts per million (ppm), which is about 400 times its natural level Carbon monoxide, however, has a natural level of 0.1 ppm and is not usually a pollutant until its level reaches about 15 ppm Question 1: According to the passage, the numerical valued of the concentration level of a substance is only useful if A the other substances in the area are known B it is in a localized area C the naturally occurring level is also known D it can be calculated quickly Question 2: The word "altered" in line refers to A caused B changed C slowed D eliminated Question 3: The word "adversely" in line is closest in meaning to A considerably B admittedly C quickly D negatively Question 4: Which of the following is best supported by the passage?

A The economic impact of air pollution B How much harm air pollutants can cause C What constitutes an air pollutant D The effects of compounds added to the atmosphere Question 74: Which of the following is best supported by the passage? A One of the most important steps in preserving natural lands is to better enforce air pollution laws B Scientists should be consulted in order to establish uniform limits for all air pollutants C To effectively control pollution local government should regularly review their air pollution laws D Human activities have been effective in reducing air pollution Question 75: It can be inferred from the first paragraph that A most air pollutants today can be seen or smelled B the definition of air pollution will continue to change C a substance becomes an air pollutant only in cities D water vapor is an air pollutant in localized areas Question 76: The word "detectable" in line 18 could best be replaced by “ _” A special B measurable C beneficial D separable Question 77: According to the passage, the numerical valued of the concentration level of a substance is only useful if A the other substances in the area are known B it can be calculated quickly C it is in a localized area D the naturally occurring level is also known Question 78: Natural pollutants can play an important role in controlling air pollution for which of the following reasons? A They occur in greater quantities than other pollutants B They function as part of a purification process C They have existed since the Earth developed D They are less harmful to living beings than are other pollutants Question 79: According to the passage, which of the following is true about human-generated air pollution in localized regions? A It will damage areas outside of the localized regions B It can be dwarfed by nature's output of pollutants in the localized region C It will react harmfully with naturally occurring pollutants D It can overwhelm the natural system that removes pollutants Question 80: The word "noxious" in line 14 is closest in meaning to A weak B harmful C noticeable D extensive SỞ GD&ĐT QUẢNG BÌNH TRƯỜNG THPT CHUYÊN - THE END -ĐỀ THI THỬ ĐẠI HỌC LẦN NĂM 2012 Môn: TIẾNG ANH; Khối D Trang 15/22 Thời gian làm bài : 90 phút, khơng kể thời gian phát đề ĐỀ CHÍNH THỨC (Đề thi có 05 trang) Mã đề thi 485 Họ, tên thí sinh: Số báo danh: ĐỀ THI GỒM 80 CÂU (TỪ QUESTION ĐẾN QUESTION 80) Mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the word that differs from the rest in the position of the main stress in each of the following questions Question 1: Question 2: Question 3: Question 4: Question 5: A interior A desperate A apprenticeship A personality A acrobat B intimate B deliberate B alternative B representative B accurate C integrity C delicacy C accessible C technological C accelerate D identify D demonstrate D apprehension D environmental D ancestor Mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the following questions Question 6: You can learn as much theory as you like, but you only master a skill by it a lot A exercising B training C practising D doing Question 7: If you run _ Steve, give him my best wishes A up B to C over D into Question 8: Maria: “I haven’t got anything for you.” Ann: “ ” A It isn’t the matter!

On my desk at home, I have a collection of souvenirs; objects that remind me of places I’ve visited and important events in my life These objects include a model boat that I saw being (51) _ from a piece of wood on a Caribbean island, a piece of lava that (52) _ hot from a volcano in the year I was born, and a shell picked up on my favourite childhood beach (53) everything else, from which memory and detail fades, it is as if the longer you hold on to certain objects, the (54) their associations with the past become, and the sharper the recollections that gather around them They are, (55) , real souvenirs, encapsulations not only of the place, but of your time in the place But these days, the term “real souvenirs” sounds like a contradiction in (56) , and this is because the objects sold to tourists as souvenirs are often cheap mass-produced imports that have nothing to (57) _ with the place at all It’s often the case that the best souvenirs, like my shell, are found rather than purchased, but (58) for souvenirs can also be a fun holiday activity But if you are buying souvenirs on holiday this summer, make sure they (59) the reality test A good souvenir is not just made in the area where it is bought, it also says something about the culture of that area It is something made by local people using sustainable local materials, and because you are effectively supporting the local economy, it shouldn’t (60) too cheap, either Question 51: Question 52: Question 53: Question 54: Question 55: A thrown A developed A Dissimilar A larger A therefore B carved B arrived B Unlike B wider B albeit C sketched C appeared C Opposite C harder C whereas D scratched D emerged D Different D greater D otherwise Trang 18/22 Question 56: Question 57: Question 58: Question 59: Question 60: A terms A gain A browsing A take A charge B meanings B get B surfing B beat B go C names C C seeking C pass C cost D words D make D pursuing D win D come 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 The livelihood of each species in the vast and intricate assemblage of living things depends on the existences of other organisms This interdependence is sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious Perhaps the most straight forward dependence of one species on another occurs with parasites, organisms that live on or in other living things and derive nutrients directly from them The parasitic way of life is widespread A multitude of microorganisms (including viruses and bacteria) and an army of invertebrates - or creatures lacking a spinal column (including crustaceans, insects, and many different types of worms) - make their livings directly at the expense of other creatures In the face of this onslaught, living things have evolved a variety of defense mechanisms for protecting their bodies from invasion by other organisms Certain fungi and even some kinds of bacteria secrete substances known as antibiotics into their external environment These substances are capable of killing or inhibiting the growth of various kinds of bacteria that also occupy the area, thereby eliminating or reducing the competition for nutrients The same principle is used in defense against invaders in other groups of organisms For example, when attacked by disease - causing fungi or bacteria, many kinds of plants produce chemicals that help to ward off the invaders Members of the animal kingdom have developed a variety of defense mechanisms for dealing with parasites Although these mechanisms vary considerably, all major groups of animals are capable of detecting and reacting to the presence of "foreign" cells In fact, throughout the animal kingdom, from sponges to certain types of worms, shellfish, and all vertebrates (creatures possessing a spinal column), there is evidence that transplants of cells or fragments of tissues into an animal are accepted only if they come from genetically compatible or closely related individuals The ability to distinguish between "self" and "nonself", while present in all animals, is most efficient among vertebrates, which have developed an immune system as their defense mechanism The immune system recognizes and takes action against foreign invaders and transplanted tissues that are treated as foreign cells Question 61: What does the passage mainly discuss? A how antibiotics work to cure disease B how the immune systems of vertebrates developed C how organisms react to invaders D how parasites reproduce Question 62: The word "they" in line 18 refers to A sponges, worms and shellfish B vertebrates C transplants D individuals Question 63: The word "intricate" in line is closest in meaning to A difficult B widespread C complex D critical Question 64: The expression "an army" in line most likely means A an attack B an illness C a large number D a distinct type Question 65: The paragraph following the passage most probably discusses A how vertebrates and invertebrates differ B how the immune system in vertebrates fights off foreign cells C different types of bacteria and lung D examples of different groups of organisms Question 66: According to the passage, the ability to distinguish between "self" and "nonself" enables vertebrates to A get rid of antibiotics B accept transplanted cells C weaken their immune system D detect and react to invasion Question 67: According to the passage, a transplant of tissue between genetically incompatible organisms will result in the transplanted tissue A altering its genetic makeup B becoming a parasite C developing a new immune system D being treated as an invader Question 68: All of the following are defined in the passage EXCEPT A nutrients (line 11) B parasites (line 3) C invertebrates (line 5) D vertebrates (line 17) Question 69: According to the passage, some organisms produce antibiotics in order to A fight off other organisms B create new types of nutrients C prevent disease in humans D aid digestion Question 70: The word "vary" in line 15 could best be replaced by “ ” A differ B contribute C endure D balance 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 Trang 19/22 A useful definition of an air pollutant is a compound added directly or indirectly by humans to the atmosphere in such quantities as to affect humans, animals vegetations, or materials adversely Air pollution requires a very flexible definition that permits continuous change When the first air pollution laws were established in England in the fourteenth century, air pollutants were limited to compounds that could be seen or smelled - a far cry from the extensive list of harmful substances known today As technology has developed and knowledge of the health aspects of various chemicals has increased, the list of air pollutants has lengthened In the future, even water vapor might be considered an air pollutant under certain conditions Many of the more important air pollutants, such as sulfur oxides, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides, are found in nature As the Earth developed, the concentrations of these pollutants were altered by various chemical reactions; they became components in biogeochemical cycle These serve as an air purification scheme by allowing the compounds to move from the air to the water or soil on a global basis, nature's output of these compounds dwarfs that resulting form human activities However, human production usually occurs in a localized area, such as a city In this localized regions, human output may be dominant and may temporarily overload the natural purification scheme of the cycle The result is an increased concentration of noxious chemicals in the air The concentrations at which the adverse effects appear will be greater than the concentrations that the pollutants would have in the absence of human activities The actual concentration need not be large for a substance to be a pollutant; in fact the numerical value tells us little until we know how much of an increase this represents over the concentration that would occur naturally in the area For example, sulfur dioxide has detectable health effects at 0.08 parts per million (ppm), which is about 400 times its natural level Carbon monoxide, however, has a natural level of 0.1 ppm and is not usually a pollutant until its level reaches about 15 ppm Question 71: The word "altered" in line refers to A slowed B changed C caused D eliminated Question 72: What does the passage mainly discuss? A What constitutes an air pollutant B How much harm air pollutants can cause C The economic impact of air pollution D The effects of compounds added to the atmosphere Question 73: The word "detectable" in line 18 could best be replaced by “ _” A special B measurable C beneficial D separable Question 74: The word "noxious" in line 14 is closest in meaning to A extensive B weak C harmful D noticeable Question 75: Which of the following is best supported by the passage? A To effectively control pollution local government should regularly review their air pollution laws B Human activities have been effective in reducing air pollution C One of the most important steps in preserving natural lands is to better enforce air pollution laws D Scientists should be consulted in order to establish uniform limits for all air pollutants Question 76: According to the passage, the numerical valued of the concentration level of a substance is only useful if A the other substances in the area are known B it can be calculated quickly C it is in a localized area D the naturally occurring level is also known Question 77: Natural pollutants can play an important role in controlling air pollution for which of the following reasons? A They occur in greater quantities than other pollutants B They function as part of a purification process C They have existed since the Earth developed D They are less harmful to living beings than are other pollutants Question 78: It can be inferred from the first paragraph that A most air pollutants today can be seen or smelled B a substance becomes an air pollutant only in cities C the definition of air pollution will continue to change D water vapor is an air pollutant in localized areas Question 79: The word "adversely" in line is closest in meaning to A admittedly B negatively C considerably D quickly Question 80: According to the passage, which of the following is true about human-generated air pollution in localized regions? A It will react harmfully with naturally occurring pollutants B It can be dwarfed by nature's output of pollutants in the localized region C It will damage areas outside of the localized regions D It can overwhelm the natural system that removes pollutants - THE END Trang 20/22 SỞ GD&ĐT QUẢNG BÌNH TRƯỜNG THPT CHUYÊN Số TT 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 ĐÁP ÁN ĐỀ THI THỬ ĐẠI HỌC LẦN NĂM 2012 Môn: TIẾNG ANH; Khối D Mã 132 C B A D D C A D B A D A A C C C C D B C B A A D B B D C B A C D C C C A C C B B B A A A C B C Mã 209 C B D D D D A A B C D C D B B D B A C D D B B B C B C C A A B A D C B D B C A D C C B C C B A Mã 357 C A D C A B A D C B A C B D B B B D C B C D C B C C D A B A B C A B D B A C D A D C A B C A D Mã 485 B B D D C C D B B A A D B B B C C B C D A D C A D B A B A C D C A D D B C D C C C B A B C A B Trang 21/22 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 B A C B D D D B D A B D B A B A D B D A D C B D C B A C C C B D D C A D B D C C C D C A B C D D B C B A B B D B D A A C C B A B D D C D C D D A B D A B C D A D D C B C C B C C B A B C C B B D B D B C C D B D B D A A C A C D C C C C B D D A A A B A B C A D B C B D Trang 22/22 ...
