Đọc đoạn văn sau và chọn câu trả lời đúng nhất (ứng vơí A, B, C hoặc D) để trả lời các câu hỏi hoặc hoàn thành các câu 71 - 75 If nobody in the United Kingdom smoked, what would happen to your pocket book? Everyone in the UK would be richer. The diseases connected to smoking are a big problem. Doctors think that the annual medical cost for lung cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses connected to smoking is between 12 and 35 million pounds. And smoking cost society money in other ways, between 27 and 61 billions pounds are spent each year: 1. on sick days (when people don't go to work) 2. on wages that you don't get when you don't go to work, and 3. on work lost at the company when you are sick. This money counts the wages from people who die of cancer at young age and stop paying taxes. This does not count fire started by cigarettes, which kill fifteen hundreds people yearly and injure another four thousand. Smoking cost every man, woman and child in the UK from one hundred and ten to two hundred and fifty pounds each year in the lost work and wages. When you add another fifty to one hundred and fifty pounds yearly in insurance cost, that comes to from one hundred and sixty lo four hundred and ten pounds. If everyone stopped smoking, a family of four could have up to one thousand six hundred and forty pounds a year or more. Of course smoking is not going to stop overnight. And NOT smoking will also cause problems, because people who don't smoke will live longer, and so they will lake money from the government when they are old. But they will also work for more years and pay more taxes. In the end the value of a non-smoking nation is not in pounds. The good health of the people is the true value for us all. 71. If everyone stopped smoking, all United Kingdom...... A. would have more money B. would have less money. C. would lise longer. D. would have no more problems. 72. Every year companies lose ......... because of the disease connected to smoking. A. sick days B. wages C. work D. time 73. If everyone slopped smoking, a family of four could have .......... more each year. A. from 110 pounds to 260 pounds. B. from 160 pounds to 410 pounds. C. from 1,340 pounds to 1,430 pounds. D. 1,640 pounds. 74. The true value for the UK of not smoking is...... A. more working people. B. more taxes. C. good health. D. more money. 75. This text is about......... A. taxes which are not paid by smokers. B. diseases that smokers get. C. how much smoking cost UK. D. how much the UK get if everyone stopped smoking.

As a teacher of whole-food vegetarian cookery, I do feel a certain sympathy with the "Men for Meat” group. There is both confusion and just plain, unappetizing cooking in this area, when a whole-food/ vegetable diet should and can be highly nutritious and utterly delicious. The words “whole-food” and “vegetarian” are not synonymous: vegetarians do not eat any “fish, flesh or fowl”. Most eat dairy products. Those who don't are called vegans. I tell students not to turn vegetarian until they have become knowledgeable about nutrition, and especially about protein. It’s very easy to become a sick vegetarian. And a whole-food diet just consists of eating the whole of food, with nothing added, and nothing taken away. For example, you eat whole wheat flour, not while flour, which has had had bleach added. In all, no refined carbohydrates are eaten and very fatty and additive-laden foods are avoided and the stress is on fresh products of the best quality. And that's all except you must then find recipes which are both healthy and delicious because you'll have to cook it all yourself. Very few ready-bought meals fulfill both requirements. 76. "Men for Meat' is a ....... A. cookery group. C. group of vegetarians. B. group of men. D. group that eat all kinds of food. 77. The writer of this article feels a "certain sympathy" for this group because...... A. She is a vegetarian. B. They don't know much about vegetarian cooking. C. “Whole food” and “vegetarian” are not the same. D. Her students do not cat meat. 78. A whole food diet ........ A. has a lot of nutrition. C. is added with flour. B. is easy to eat. D. is often fresh. 79. According to the writer, what is wrong with ready bought meals for vegetarians? A. They can't be both healthy and delicious. B. They can be cooked easily. C. They contain some additives. D. They have best quality. 80. What is NOT true about the writer? A. She is a teacher. C. She supports the whole food. B. She is a vegetarian. D. She dislikes ready bought meals. Đáp án: 1. A 2. D 3. C 4. A 5. B 6. D 7. B 8. A 9. B 10. C 11. B 12. A 13. C 14. C 15. A
