Reading 1: 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.
First Man on the Moon On July 16, 1969, America launched the Apollo 11, Lunar Landing Mission from Kennedy Space Center. This was a 363-foot-tall space vehicle, the five engines of which on the Saturn V rocket generated 7.5 million pounds of thrust. Twelve minutes after the launch, the astronauts were in orbit 120 miles above the Earth.  At a speed of 17,400 mph, they began their four-day journey to the moon.  They had nearly a quarter of a million miles to go.On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong descended from the lunar module ladder.  Just prior to taking his first step on the moon, Armstrong pilled on a special ring, causing a TV camera to automatically deploy. As he stepped onto the moon’s surface he proclaimed, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”  However, Armstrong inadvertently omitted the “a” before “man”. This error slightly changed the meaning of what was to become known as Armstrong’s famous statemenQuestion 1: What is this passage mainly about?

Reading 2: 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.
Glass is a remarkable substance made from the simplest raw materials. It can be colored or colorless, monochrome or polychrome, transparent, translucent, or opaque. It is lightweight impermeable to liquids, readily cleaned and reused, durable yet fragile, and often very beautiful Glass can be decorated in multiple ways and its optical properties are exceptional. In all its myriad forms – as table ware, containers, in architecture and design –glass represents a major achievement in the history of technological developments.
Since the Bronze Age about 3,000 B.C., glass has been used for making various kinds of objects. It was first made from a mixture of silica, line and an alkali such as soda or potash, and these remained the basic ingredients of glass until the development of lead glass in the seventeenth century. When heated, the mixture becomes soft and malleable and can be formed by various techniques into a vast array of shapes and sizes. The homogeneous mass thus formed by melting then cools to create glass, but in contrast to most materials formed in this way (metals, for instance), glass lacks the crystalline structure normally associated with solids, and instead retains the random molecular structure of a liquid. In effect, as molten glass cools, it progressively stiffens until rigid, but does so without setting up a network of interlocking crystals customarily associated with that process. This is why glass shatters so easily when dealt a blow. Why glass deteriorates over time, especially when exposed to moisture, and why glassware must be slowly reheated and uniformly cooled after manufacture to release internal stresses induced by uneven cooling.
Another unusual feature of glass is the manner in which its viscosity changes as it turns from a cold substance into a hot, ductile liquid. Unlike metals that flow or “freeze” at specific temperatures glass progressively softens as the temperature rises, going through varying stages of malleability until it flows like a thick syrup. Each stage of malleability allows the glass to be manipulated into various forms, by different techniques, and if suddenly cooled the object retains the shape achieved at that point. Glass is thus amenable to a greater number of heatforming techniques than most other materials.
Question 1: Why does the author list the characteristics of glass in paragraph 1?
Question 2: The word “durable“‘ in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to______.
Question 3: What does the author imply about the raw materials used to make glass?
Đoạn 2: . ….in the seventeenth century : …..ở thế kỉ 17==> cùng thế kỷ.
Question 4: According to the passage, how is glass that has cooled and become rigid different from most other rigid substances?
Ý của Question hỏi là: Theo đoạn văn, thủy tinh mà được làm lạnh và trở thành thể rắn khác như thế nào so với hầu hết các chất liệu khác. Dựa vào nội dung đoạn 2: The homogeneous mass thus formed by melting then cools to create glass, but in contrast to most materials formed in this way (metals, for instance), glass lacks the crystalline structure normally associated with solids, and instead retains the random molecular structure of a liquid. (Khối chất mà được hình thành bằng việc nung chảy sau đó được làm lạnh để tạo thủy tinh, nhưng trái với hầu hết các nguyên liệu khác cũng được hình thành theo cách này (ví dụ như kim loại), thủy tinh thiếu cấu trúc tinh thể thường được kết hợp với thể rắn, và thay vào đó giữ lại một cách ngẫu nhiên các phân tử cấu trúc của thể lỏng.) –> D. It has random molecular structure. (Nó có cấu trúc phân tử ngẫu nhiên) là đáp án đúng.
Question 5: The word “customarily” in paragraph 2 could best be replaced by “______”.
Question 6: The words “exposed to” in paragraph 2 most likely mean ______.
exposed to=subject to:tiếp xúc với
Question 7: What must be done to release the internal stresses that build up in glass products during manufacture?
Question 8: The word “induced” in paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to_______.
Question 9: The word “it” in paragraph 3 refers to______
Question 10: According to the passage, why can glass be more easily shaped into specific forms than can metals
