Read the passage and choose the most appropriate answer from A , B , C or D to answer the questions
While all my classmates seen to be crazy about a one-way ticket to Mars , I’d rather say Mars is totally unsuitable for human existence. People won’t have enough food supplies there, and the terrible environment would make it impossible for them to live a long life. Besides, the journey won’t be safe. Can anybody explain to me just why people would go to Mars, never to return?

Here are the things you can think of: the desire to explore a foreign and unique environment, the excitement of being the first humans to open up a new world, the expectation of fame and glory…For scientists there is another reason. Their observations and research will probably lead to great scientific achievements.
Donal Trollop, Canada
There are already too many people on the Earth. I think that sometime before the end of the century, there will be a human colony on Mars. It will happen when people finally realize that tow-way trips to the red planet Mars are unnecessary. Most of the danger of space Flight is in the launches and landings. Cutting the trip home would therefore reduce the danger of accidents, save a lot of money, and open the way to building an everlasting human settlement on another world.
Enough supplies can be sent on ahead. And every two years more supplies and more people will needs, and Mars is far more pleasant than the other planets in the outer space.

2,
Being able to multitask—doing several things at the same time—is considered a welcome skill by most people. But if we consider the situation of the young people aged from eight to eighteen, we should think again.
What we often see nowadays is that young people juggle an ever larger number of electronic devices as they study. While working, they also surf on the Internet, send out emails, answer the telephone and listen to music on their iPods. In a sense, they are spending a significant amount of time in fruitless efforts as they multitask.
Multitasking is even changing the relationship between family members. As young people around them. They can no longer greet family members when they enter the house, nor can they cat at the family table.
Multitasking also affects young people’s performance at university and in the workplace. When asked about their opinion of the effect of modern gadgets on their performance of tasks, many young people gave a positive response. However, the response from the worlds of education and business was not quite as positive. Educators feel that multitasking by children has a serious effect on later development of study skills. They believe that many college students now need help to improve their study skills. Similarly, employers feel that young people entering the job market need to be taught all over again, as modern gadgets have made it unnecessary for them to learn special skills to do their work.

Enough supplies can be sent on ahead
(có từ "ahead" : trc tiên sự cung cấp đầy đủ sẽ đc gửi lên sao Hỏa, sau đó con người fai tự lam ra chứ, ko th́ có từ "ahead" làm ji)
every two years more supplies and more people will needs, and Mars is far more pleasant than the other planets in the outer space.
cứ 2 năm một lần , nguồn hàng và số người sẽ đc bổ sung như vậy sao Hỏa sẽ trở lên thân thiện với con người hơn các hành tinh khác ngoài không gian.
(ư ở đây là số người và số hàng tăng lên--->con người tự ḿnh làm ra ----> trên sao Hỏa sẽ dễ chụi hơn nhiều so vs các hành tinh #)
What does Paul Davies think of human existence on Mars?

B. Humans will find Mars totally unsuitable for living.
C. Humans can produce everything they need.
D. Humans can live longer in the colony on Mars.

Có thể chứ , người ta chuyển đồ lên trc ,đó là bước chuẩn bị cho con người có thể tồn tại tại sao Hỏa khi mà ko thể produce.

every two years more supplies and more people will needs, and Mars is far more pleasant than the other planets in the outer space.
cứ 2 năm một lần , nguồn hàng và số người sẽ đc bổ sung như vậy sao Hỏa sẽ trở lên thân thiện với con người hơn các hành tinh khác ngoài không gian.
(ư ở đây là số người và số hàng tăng lên--->con người tự ḿnh làm ra ----> trên sao Hỏa sẽ dễ chụi hơn nhiều so vs các hành tinh #)
Xin lỗi nhưng ḿnh vẫn chưa đồng ư với cách giai thích của bạn. Nếu con người có thể self-produce vậy tại sao lại có cụm từ cứ 2 năm 1 lần

tớ cũng ko mong cậu hiểu v́ tớ cũng ko nghĩ đấy là đ/a đúng nhưng đ/a chỉ có 1, là đ/a C , đi thi nhắm mắt làm bừa (tớ nghĩ đ/a B đúng hơn v́ đoạn đầu có ghi)

I’d rather say Mars is totally unsuitable for human existence. People won’t have enough food supplies there, and the terrible environment would make it impossible for them to live a long life. Besides, the journey won’t be safe.
