Câu 36

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 from 36 to 42.

Ranked as the number one beverage consumed worldwide, tea takes the lead over coffee in both popularity
and production with more than 5 million tons of tea produced annually. Although much of this tea is
consumed in Asian, European and African countries, the United States drinks its fair share. According to
estimates by the Tea Council of the United States, tea is enjoyed by no less than half of the U.S. population
on any given day. Black tea or green tea - iced, spiced, or instant - tea drinking has spurred a billion-dollar
business with major tea producers in Africa and South America and throughout Asia.
Tea is made from the leaves of an evergreen plant, Camellia sinensis, which grows tall and lush in tropical
regions. On tea plantations, the plant is kept trimmed to approximately four feet high and as new buds called
flush appear, they are plucked off by hand. Even in today’s world of modern agricultural machinery, hand
harvesting continues to be the preferred method. Ideally, only the top two leaves and a bud should be
picked. This new growth produces the highest quality tea.
After being harvested, tea leaves are laid out on long drying racks, called withering racks, for 18 to 20 hours.
Next, depending on the type of tea being produced, the leaves may be crushed or chopped to release flavor,
and then fermented under controlled conditions of heat and humidity. For green tea, the whole leaves are
often steamed to retain their green color, and the fermentation process is skipped. Producing black teas
requires fermentation during which the tea leaves begin to darken. After fermentation, black tea is dried in
vats to produce its rich brown or black color.
No one knows when or how tea became popular, but legend has it that tea as a beverage, was discovered in
2737 B.C. by Emperor Shen Nung of China when leaves from a Camellia dropped into his drinking water as it
was boiling over a fire. As the story goes, Emperor Shen Nung drank the resulting liquid and proclaimed the
drink to be most nourishing and refreshing. Though this account cannot be documented, it is thought that
tea drinking probably originated in China and spread to other parts of Asia, then to Europe, and ultimately to
America colonies around 1650.
With about half the caffeine content as coffee, tea is often chosen by those who want to reduce, but not
necessarily eliminate their caffeine intake. Some people find that tea is less acidic than coffee and therefore
easier on the stomach. Others have become interested in tea drinking since the National Cancer Institute
published its findings on the antioxidant properties of tea. But whether tea is enjoyed for its perceived health
benefits, its flavor, or as a social drink, teacups continue to be filled daily with the world’s most popular
beverage.
Question 36: Why does the author include statistics on the amount of tea produced, sold and
consumed?

A.

To show the expense of processing such a large quantity of tea.

B.

To explain why coffee is not the most popular beverage worldwide

C.

To demonstrate tea’s popularity.

D.

To impress the reader with factual sounding information.

No one knows when or how tea became popular, but legend has it that tea as a beverage, was discovered in
2737 B.C. by Emperor Shen Nung of China when leaves from a Camellia dropped into his drinking water as it
was boiling over a fire. As the story goes, Emperor Shen Nung drank the resulting liquid and proclaimed the
drink to be most nourishing and refreshing. Though this account cannot be documented, it is thought that
tea drinking probably originated in China and spread to other parts of Asia, then to Europe, and ultimately to
America colonies around 1650.
With about half the caffeine content as coffee, tea is often chosen by those who want to reduce, but not
necessarily eliminate their caffeine intake. Some people find that tea is less acidic than coffee and therefore
easier on the stomach. Others have become interested in tea drinking since the National Cancer Institute
published its findings on the antioxidant properties of tea. But whether tea is enjoyed for its perceived health
benefits, its flavor, or as a social drink, teacups continue to be filled daily with the world’s most popular
beverage.
Question 40: The word “eliminate” in paragraph 5 could be best replaced by which of the
following word?

A.

decrease

B.

increase

C.

reduce

D.

remove

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 from 36 to 42.

Ranked as the number one beverage consumed worldwide, tea takes the lead over coffee in both popularity
and production with more than 5 million tons of tea produced annually. Although much of this tea is
consumed in Asian, European and African countries, the United States drinks its fair share. According to
estimates by the Tea Council of the United States, tea is enjoyed by no less than half of the U.S. population
on any given day. Black tea or green tea - iced, spiced, or instant - tea drinking has spurred a billion-dollar
business with major tea producers in Africa and South America and throughout Asia.
Tea is made from the leaves of an evergreen plant, Camellia sinensis, which grows tall and lush in tropical
regions. On tea plantations, the plant is kept trimmed to approximately four feet high and as new buds called
flush appear, they are plucked off by hand. Even in today’s world of modern agricultural machinery, hand
harvesting continues to be the preferred method. Ideally, only the top two leaves and a bud should be
picked. This new growth produces the highest quality tea.
After being harvested, tea leaves are laid out on long drying racks, called withering racks, for 18 to 20 hours.
Next, depending on the type of tea being produced, the leaves may be crushed or chopped to release flavor,
and then fermented under controlled conditions of heat and humidity. For green tea, the whole leaves are
often steamed to retain their green color, and the fermentation process is skipped. Producing black teas
requires fermentation during which the tea leaves begin to darken. After fermentation, black tea is dried in
vats to produce its rich brown or black color.

In the last third of the nineteenth century a new housing form was quietly being developed. In 1869 the
Stuyvesant, considered New York’s first apartment house, was built on East Eighteenth Street. The building
was financed by the developer Rutherfurd Stuyvesant and designed by Richard Morris Hunt, the first
American architect to graduate from the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Each man had lived in Paris, and each
understood the economic and social potential of this Parisian housing form. But the Stuyvesant was at best a
limited success. In spite of Hunt’s inviting facade, the living place was awkwardly arranged. Those who could
afford them were quite content to remain in the more sumptuous, single-family homes, leaving the
Stuyvesant to young married couple and bachelors.
The fundamental problem with the Stuyvesant and the other early apartment buildings that quickly followed,
in the late 1870’s and early 1880’s, was that they were confined to the typical New York building lot. That lot
was a rectangular area 25 feet wide by 100 feet deep - a shape perfectly suited for a row house. The lot
could also accommodate a rectangular tenement, though it could not yield the square, well-lighted, and
logically arranged rooms that great apartment buildings require. But even with the awkward interior
configurations of the early apartment buildings, the idea caught on. It met the needs of a large and growing
population that wanted something better than tenements but could not afford or did not want row houses.
So while the city’s newly emerging social leadership commissioned their mansions, apartment houses and
hotels began to sprout on multiple lots, thus breaking the initial space constraints. In the closing decades of
the nineteenth century, large apartment houses began dotting the developed portions of New York City, and
by the opening decades of the twentieth century, spacious buildings, such as the Dakota and the Ansonia
finally transcended the tight confinement of row house building lots. From there it was only a small step to
building luxury apartment houses on the newly created Park Avenue, right next to the fashionable Fifth
Avenue shopping area.
Question 43. The new housing form discussed in the passage refers to ________

A.

single-family homes

B.

apartment buildings

C.

row houses

D.

hotels
