A pilot cannot fly by sight alone. In many conditions, such as flying at night and landing in dense fog, a pilot must
use radar, an alternative way of navigating. Since human eyes are not very good at determining speeds of
approaching objects, radar can show a pilot how fast nearby planes are moving. The basic principle of radar is
exemplified by what happens when one shouts in a cave. The echo of the sounds against the walls helps a person
determine the size of the cave. With radar, however, the waves are radio waves instead of sound waves. Radio
waves travel at the speed of light, about 300,000 kilometers in one second. A radar set sends out a short burst of
radio waves. Then it receives the echoes produced when the waves bounce off objects. By determining the time it
takes for the echoes to return to the radar set, a trained technician can determine the distance between the radar set
and other objects. The word “radar”, in fact, gets its name from the term “radio detection and ranging”. “Ranging” is
the term for detection of the distance between an object and the radar set. Besides being of critical importance to
pilots, radar is essential for air traffic control, tracking ships at sea, and for tracking weather systems and storms.

Because writing has become so important in our culture, we sometimes think of it as more real than speech. A
little thought, however, will show why speech is primary and writing secondary to language. Human beings have
been writing (as far as we can tell from surviving evidence) for at least 5000 years; but they have been talking for
much longer, doubtless ever since there have been human beings.
When writing did develop, it was derived from and represented speech, although imperfectly. Even today
there are spoken languages that have no written form. Furthermore, we all learn to talk well before we learn to write;
any human child who is not severely handicapped physically or mentally will learn to talk: a normal human being
cannot be prevented from doing so. On the other hand, it takes a special effort to learn to write. In the past many
intelligent and useful members of society did not acquire the skill, and even today many who speak languages with
Trang 2/4 - Mã đề thi 248
writing systems never learn to read or write, while some who learn the rudiments of those skills do so only
To affirm the primacy of speech over writing is not, however, to disparage the latter. One advantage writing
has over speech is that it is more permanent and makes possible the records that any civilization must have. Thus, if
speaking makes us human, writing makes us civilized.

A. all languages should have a written form
B. writing has become too important in today’s society

Câu 33: Normal human beings ______.
A. learn to talk after learning to write B. learn to write before learning to talk
C. learn to write and to talk at the same time D. learn to talk before learning to write

A. is represented perfectly by speech B. represents speech, but not perfectly
