These stories of killer bees in the news in recent years have attracted a lot of attention as the bees have
made their way from South America. Killer bees are reputed to be extremely aggressive in nature,
although experts that their aggression may have been somewhat inflated.
The killer bee is a combination of the very mild European strain of honeybee and the considerably
more aggressive African bee, which was created when the African strain was imported into Brazil in
1955. The African bees were brought into Brazil because their aggression was considered an


4

advantage: they were far more productive than their European counterparts in that they spent a higher
percentage of their time working and continued working longer in inclement weather than did the
European bees.
These killer bees have been known to attack humans and animals, and some fatalities have occurred.
Experts point out, however, that the mixed breed known as the killer bee is actually not at all as
aggressive as the pure African bee. They also point out that the attacks have a chemical cause. A killer
bee stings only when it has been disturbed; it is not aggressive by nature. However, after a disturbed
bee stings and flies away; it leaves its stinger embedded in the victim. In the vicera attached to the
embedded stinger is the chemical isoamyl acetate, which has an odor that attracts other bees. As other
bees approach the victim of the original sting, the victim tends to panic, thus disturbing other bees and
causing them to sting. The new stings create more of the chemical isoamyl acetate which attracts more
bees and increases the panic level of the victim. Killer bees tend to travel in large clusters or swarms
and thus respond in large numbers to the production of isoamyl acetate.
41. The subject of the paragraph before paragraph 1 was mostly likely_________.
A. the creation of the killer bee

B. the chemical nature of killer bees attacks

C. stories in the media about killer bees

D. ways of producing honey

42. The word "inflated" in paragraph 1 means_________.
A. aired

B. exaggerated

C. blown

D. burst

43. Why were African bees considered beneficial?
A. They spent their time traveling.
B. They were productive, even in inclement weather.
C. They produced an unusual type of honey.
D. They didn't work hard in inclement weather.
44. The word 'their' in paragraph 2 refers to_________.
A. the European bees'
C. the killer bees'

B. the African bees'
D. the honey bees'

45. It is stated in the passage that killer bees_________.
A. are less aggressive than African bees
C. are more deadly than African bees

B. never attacks animals
D. always attack African bees

46. Which is NOT mentioned in the passage as a contributing factor in an attack by killer bees?

B. The odor of isoamyl acetate

C. Disturbance of the bees

D. Inclement weather

PHẦN 9: BÀI ĐỌC 2
Đọc đoạn văn và trả lời 8 câu hỏi kèm theo.
The Alaska pipeline starts at the frozen edge of the Arctic Ocean. It stretches southward across the largest
and northernmost state in the United States, ending at a remote ice-free seaport village nearly 800 miles
from where it begins. It is massive in size and extremely complicated to operate.
The steel pipe crosses windswept plains and endless miles of delicate tundra that tops the frozen ground.
It weaves through crooked canyons, climbs sheer mountains, plunges over rocky crags, makes its way
through thick forests, and passes over or under hundreds of rivers and streams. The pipe is 4 feet in
diameter, and up to 2 million barrels (or 84 million gallons) of crude oil can be pumped through it daily.
Resting on H-shaped steel racks called "bents," long sections of the pipeline follow a zigzag course high
above the frozen earth. Other long sections drop out of sight beneath spongy or rocky ground and return
to the surface later on. The pattern of the pipeline's up-and-down route is determined by the often harsh
demands of the arctic and subarctic climate, the tortuous lay of the land, and the varied compositions of
soil, rock, or permafrost (permanently frozen ground). A little more than half of the pipeline is elevated
above the ground.
The remainder is buried anywhere from 3 to 12 feet, depending largely upon the type of terrain and the
properties of the soil.
One of the largest in the world, the pipeline cost approximately $8 billion and is by far the biggest and
most expensive construction project ever undertaken by private industry. In fact, no single business could
raise that much money, so eight major oil companies formed a consortium in order to share the costs.
Each company controlled oil rights to particular shares of land in the oil fields and paid into the pipeline-



6

construction fund according to the size of its holdings. Today, despite enormous problems of climate,
supply shortages, equipment
breakdowns, labor disagreements, treacherous terrain, a certain amount of mismanagement, and even
theft, the Alaska pipeline has been completed and is operating.

pipeline's route EXCEPT the
A. A. climate
B. B. lay of the land itself
C. C. local vegetation
D. D. kind of soil and rock

A. A. removed
