  2. MOCK TESTS FOR 10TH ENTRANCE EXAM VU HONG VUONG Read the following passage and mark letter A, B, C, or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions that follow. Man and most animals need a constant supply of water to live. Farmers need water for their crops. Hydroelectric dams hold back needed water and provide power for homes and industries.

Water can be held on the land by planting vegetation. Forests and grass should be planted where there are no natural growths. Dams built across rivers help hold back the water. Reservoirs behind the dams store water during wet seasons for use in dry seasons. Dams help prevent floods by controlling the flow of water. 17. What is the main topic of the passage? A.

  12. MOCK TESTS FOR 10TH ENTRANCE EXAM VU HONG VUONG Read the following passage and mark letter A, B, C or D to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions that follow. There is growing evidence that urbanization has a sharp impact on climate, causing changes that can wreak havoc on precipitation patterns that supply the precious resource of water. The heavy amounts of heat and pollution rising from cities both delay and stimulate the fall of precipitation, depriving some areas of rain while drenching others. Cities are on average one to ten degrees warmer than the surrounding undeveloped areas. Cities also produce large amounts of pollutants called aerosols, gaseous suspensions of dust particles or byproducts from the burning of fossil fuels. Both heat and pollutants change the dynamics of clouds. When hoisted up in the sky, the microscopic particles act as multiple surfaces on which the moisture in clouds can condense as tiny droplets. This can prevent or delay the formation of larger raindrops that fall more easily from the sky, or it can cause the rain to fall in another location. In California, pollution blows eastward and causes a precipitation shortage of around one trillion gallons a year across the Sierra Nevada mountain range. By contrast, in very humid cities, such as Houston, heat and pollutants seem to invigorate summer storm activity by allowing clouds to build higher and fuller before releasing torrential rains. 17. The fact that urbanization plays a part in climate change can be___. A. ignored B. proved C. omitted D. imagined 18. One of the changes in climate by urbanization is___. A. different precipitation patterns B. more pollutants C. a decrease in pollution D. undeveloped areas 19. In cities, the rain patterns have been altered because of___.
