 If parents bring up a child with the sole aim of turning the child into a genius, they will cause a 
disaster. According to several leading educational psychologists, this is one of the biggest mistakes 
which ambitious parents make. Generally, the child will be only too aware of what his parents expect, 
and will fail. Unrealistic parental expectations can cause great damage to children. 
 Trang 2/6 - Mã đề thi 862 
 However, if parents are not too unrealistic about what they expect their children to do, but are 
ambitious in a sensible way, the child may succeed in doing very well – especially if the parents are 
very supportive of their child. 
 Michael Collins is very lucky. He is crazy about music, and his parents help him a lot by 
taking him to concerts and arranging private piano and violin lessons for him. They even drive him 
50 kilometers twice a week for violin lessons. Michael’s mother knows very little about music, but his 
father plays the trumpet in a large orchestra. However, he never makes Michael enter music 
competitions if he is unwilling. 
 Winston Smith, Michael’s friend, however, is not so lucky. Both his parents are successful 
musicians, and they set too high a standard for Winston. They want their son to be as successful as

does not win. Winston is always afraid that he will disappoint his parents and now he always seems 
quiet and unhappy.

 Today we take electricity for granted and perhaps we do not realize just how useful this 
discovery has been. Steam was the first invention that replaced wind power. It was used to drive 
engines and was passed through pipes and radiators to warm rooms. Petrol mixed with air was the 
 Trang 4/6 - Mã đề thi 862 
next invention that provided power. Exploded in a cylinder, it drove a motor engine. Beyond these 
simple and direct uses, those forms have not much adaptability. 
 On the other hand, we make use of electricity in thousands of ways. From the powerful 
voltages that drive our electric trains to the tiny current needed to work a simple calculator, and from 
the huge electric magnet in steel works that can lift 10 tons to the tiny electric magnet in a doorbell, 
all are powered by electricity. An electric current can be made with equal ease to heat a huge mass 
of molten metal in a furnace, or to boil a jug for a cup of coffee. 
 Other than atomic energy, which has not as yet been harnessed to the full, electricity is the 
greatest power in the world. It is flexible, and so adaptable for any task for which it is wanted. It 
travels so easily and with incredible speed along wires or conductors that it can be supplied instantly 
over vast distances. 
 To generate electricity, huge turbines or generators must be turned. In Australia they use coal 
or water to drive this machinery. When dams are built, falling water is used to drive the turbines 
without polluting the atmosphere with smoke from coal. 
 Atomic power is used in several countries but there is always the fear of an accident. A 
tragedy once occurred at Chernobyl, in Ukraine, at an atomic power plant used to make electricity. 
The reactor leaked, which caused many deaths through radiation. 
 Now scientists are examining new ways of creating electricity without harmful effects to the 
environment. They may harness the tides as they flow in and out of bays. Most importantly, they 
hope to trap sunlight more efficiently. We do use solar heaters for swimming pools but as yet 
improvement in the capacity of the solar cells to create more current is necessary. When this 
happens, electric cars will be viable and the world will rid itself of the toxic gases given off by trucks 
and cars that burn fossil fuels. 
Question 66: The author mentions the sources of energy such as wind, steam, petrol in the first 
paragraph to ______. 
A. emphasize the usefulness and adaptability of electricity 
B. imply that electricity is not the only useful source of energy 
C. suggest that electricity should be alternated with safer sources of energy 
D. discuss which source of energy can be a suitable alternative to electricity 
Question 67: Before electricity, what was sometimes passed through pipes to heat rooms? 
A. Gas. B. Petrol. C. Hot wind. D. Steam. 
Question 68: What does the author mean by saying that electricity is flexible? 
A. It is used to drive motor engines. B. It can be made with ease. 
C. It can be adapted to various uses. D. It is cheap and easy to use. 
Question 69: What do we call machines that make electricity? 
A. Voltages. B. Electric magnets. 
C. Pipes and radiators. D. Generators or turbines. 
Question 70: The main forms of power used to generate electricity in Australia are ______. 
A. sunlight and wind power B. wind and gas 
C. water and coal D. atomic power and water 
Question 71: The word "they" in the last paragraph refers to ______. 
A. the tides B. scientists C. new ways D. harmful effects 
Question 72: Electric magnets are used in steel works to ______. 
A. test the steel for strength B. heat the molten steel 
C. boil a jug of water D. lift heavy weights up to ten tons 
Question 73: The advantage of harnessing the power of the tides and of sunlight to generate 
electricity is that they ______. 
A. do not require attention B. do not pollute the environment 
C. are more reliable D. are more adaptable 
Question 74: Which of the following power sources causes pollution by emitting harmful gases? 
A. Petrol. B. Sunlight. C. Wind. D. Water. 
Question 75: The best title for this passage could be ______. 
A. “Why Electricity Is So Remarkable” B. “How to Produce Electricity” 
C. “Electricity: Harmful Effects on Our Life” D. “Types of Power Plants”
