It would be hard to cite a development that has had more impact on American industry than the Bessemer
process of making steel. It made possible the production of low-cost steel and established the foundation of the
modern steel industry. In many ways it was responsible for the rapid industrialization of the United States that took
place in the formative period of the late 1800s.
The first Bessemer plant in the United States was built in Wyandotte, Michigan, in 1864, near the end of the Civil
War. It was capable of producing only 2 tons of steel ingots at a time. The ingots were rolled into rails-the first steel
rails made in the United States. Acceptance of the process was initially slow. By 1870, the annual output of Bessemer
steel was a mere 42 thousand tons. Production grew rapidly after about 1875, rising to 1.2 million tons in 1880, when
it exceeded that of wrought iron for the first time.
The rise of the U.S. steel industry in the last quarter of the nineteenth century was brought about largely by the
demand for Bessemer steel rails for the nation’s burgeoning rail network. Steel rails were far more durable than
those made of iron. Spurred by this demand, the U.S. steel industry became the largest in the world in 1886, when it
surpassed that of Great Britain.
The Bessemer process was the chief method of making steel until 1907, when it was overtaken by the open-
hearth process. By the 1950s, the Bessemer process accounted for less than 3 percent of the total U.S. production.
Question 24. With what topic is this passage mainly concerned?
A. The history of metal working.
B. A comparison of the U.S. and British steel industries in the nineteenth century.

A. the establishment of the modern steel industry in the United States.
B. the manufacture of weapons during the Civil War.
C. lowered costs for steel.
D. industrial development in the United States during an important period.
Question 26. What can be inferred from the passage about wrought iron?
A. At one time, more of it was produced than Bessemer steel.
B. It is a by-product of the Bessemer process.
C. It was once primarily imported from Great Britain.
D. It later became a more important product than Bessemer steel.
Question 27. The word “burgeoning” is closest in meaning to

D. It was becoming more and more important.

Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C or D on your sheet to indicate the correct
answer to each of the question
Experts in climatology and other scientists are becoming extremely concerned about the changes to our climate
which are taking place. Admittedly, climate changes have occurred on our planet before. For example, there have
been several ice ages or glacial periods.
These climatic changes, however, were different from the modern ones in that they occurred gradually and, as
far as we know, naturally. The changes currently being monitored are said to be the result not of natural causes, but
of human activity. Furthermore, the rate of change is becoming alarmingly rapid.
[trang 2/ mã đề 132]
The major problem is that the planet appears to be warming up. According to some experts, this warming
process, known as global warming, is occurring at a rate unprecedented in the last 10,000 years. The implications for
the planet are very serious. Rising global temperatures could give rise to such ecological disasters as extremely high
increases in the incidence of flooding and of droughts. These in turn could have a harmful effect on agriculture.
It is thought that this unusual warming of the Earth has been caused by so-called greenhouse gases, such as
carbon dioxide, being emitted into the atmosphere by car engines and modern industrial processes, for example. Such
gases not only add to the pollution of the atmosphere, but also create a greenhouse effect, by which the heat of the
sun is trapped. This leads to the warming up of the planet.
Politicians are also concerned about climate change and there are now regular summits on the subject,
attended by representatives from around 180 of the world’s industrialized countries. Of these summits, the most
important took place in Kyoto in Japan in 1997. There it was agreed that the most industrialized countries would try to
reduce the volume of greenhouse gas emissions and were given targets for this reduction of emissions.
It was also suggested that more forests should be planted to create so-called sinks to absorb greenhouse
gases. At least part of the problem of rapid climate change has been caused by too drastic deforestation.
Sadly, the targets are not being met. Even more sadly, global warnings about climate changes are often still
being regarded as scaremongering
Question 32. According to the passage, in what way did the climate changes in the ice ages differ from the modern
A. They occurred naturally over a long period of time B. They were partly intended.
C. They were wholly the result of human activity. D. They were fully monitored by humans.

C. do not add to atmosphere pollution D. are unusual gases
Question 36. It can be inferred from the passage that the countries which are mainly responsible for global
warming are .
A. countries with the warmest climate B. developing countries
C. developed countries D. the most industrialized countries
Question 37. Which of the following is NOT true, according to the passage?

B. The so-called sinks created by forests can absorb greenhouse gases.
