Đề thi học kì 2 Tiếng Anh Lớp 8 - Đề 18 (Kèm đáp án)

Read the passage and answer the questions. Circle A, B, or C.
The Moon is approximately 384,400 kilometers from the Earth. Its diameter is 3,479 kilometers, about 1/4 the diameter of Earth. The average temperature on the surface of the Moon during the day is 107°C, hot enough to boil water on Earth. During the night, the average temperature drops to −153°C.
Because of its smaller size and mass, the gravity of the Moon is about 1/6 the gravity on the Earth. That means that a person who weighs 180 pounds on Earth would only weigh 30 pounds if measured on the Moon.
The force of gravity from the Moon affects Earth. Its gravity reaches Earth and pulls the oceans toward the Moon, causing the tides. The gravity from the Sun also affects the tides. The highest tides will always occur when the Moon and Sun are aligned. That is when there is a New Moon or a Full Moon.
1. What is the first paragraph mainly about?
A. A comparison between the Moon and Earth
B. Physical characteristics of the Moon
C. The effect of the Moon on Earth
2. The word “its” in paragraph 2 refers to which of the following?
A. the Moon’s
B. Earth’s
C. gravity’s
3. According to the passage, which of the following is true?
A. A person would lose 5/ 6 of their weight if they were on the Moon.
B. A person would weigh much less on the Moon than on Earth.
C. The Earth weighs six times as much as the Moon.
4. What can we learn about the tides?
A. They happen twice a month at New Moon and Full Moon.

It was named ENIAC – Electronic Numerical Integrator and Calculator. Thanks to the development of technology, computers become smaller and smaller. The first personal computer was actually introduced in the 1970s by MITS, Apple Computer and IBM. They didn’t look exactly like now but they were surely revolutionary at the time. Scientists are finding ways to make computers as smaller and slimmer as possible. Some of the today computers are small enough to carry out in pockets. But technology doesn’t stop there. They will continue to bring out smaller computers. Who knows? Maybe one day we will not need the big desktops or laptops. We may need a computer chip that is as small as a fingernail. 1.

I must write to tell you about the natural disaster I saw on TV this morning. It was a huge tsunami in Japan two days ago. At first, there was a very strong earthquake, and then the tsunami swept through the coastal areas of northern Japan. It was so devastating. What used to be busy and lively cities now has become a vast area of debris. Houses were totally destroyed, and pieces of furniture and means of transport were scattered everywhere. Luckily, thanks to early warning, there was no human loss. I felt terrible .I intend to donate some of my pocket money to help the Japanese people.Would you like to join me? Love
