Discrimination against women in business,the demands of caring for families, and lack of business training had kept the number of womenentrepreneurs small. Now, however, businesses owned by women account for more than $40 billion inannual revenues, and this figure is likely to continue rising throughout the 1990s. As Carolyn DoppeltGray, an official of the Small Business Administration, has noted, "The 1970s was the decade ofwomen entering management, and the 1980s turned out to be the decade of the womanentrepreneur". What are some of the factors behind this trend? For one thing, as more women earnadvanced degrees in business and enter the corporate world, they are finding obstacles. Women arestill excluded from most executive suites. Charlotte Taylor, management consultant, had noted, "Inthe 1970s women believed if they got an MBA and worked hard they could become chairman of theboard. Now they've found out that isn't going to happen, so they go out on their own".In the past, most women entrepreneurs worked in "women's" fields: cosmetics and clothing, forexample. But this is changing. Consider ASK Computer Systems,$22-million-a-year computersoftware business. It was founded in 1973 by Sandra Kurtzig, who was then housewife with degreesin math and engineering. When Kurtzig founded the business, her first product was software that letweekly newspapers keep tabs on their newspaper carriers, and her office was bedroom at home,with shoebox under the bed to hold the company's cash. After she succeeded with the newspapersoftware system, she hired several bright computer-science graduates to develop additionalprograms. When these were marketed and sold, ASK began to grow. It now has 200 employees, andSandra Kurtzig owns \$66.9 million of stock.Of course, many women who start their own businesses fail, just as men often do. They still facehurdles in the business world, especially problems in raising money; the banking and finance world isstill dominated by men, and old attitudes die hard. Most businesses owned by women are still quitesmall. But the situation is changing; there are likely to be many more Sandra Kurtzigs in the yearsahead.Câu 1: What is the main idea of this passage?A.

The customary postal systemrequires messages written on paper to be transmitted physically from one location to another. Withelectronic mail, messages are converted into electronic signals, transmitted anywhere in the world,and then changed back into their original written forms, all in several seconds or minutes at most.Through the use of video screens in company offices, single document can be transmitted tohundreds of people in dozens of branch offices simultaneously Thus, electronic mail, along withdata bases, can be an important asset in teleconferences. Furthermore, the use of electronic mail inthe form of the “mail box” attached to telephone is also of great value. Since in offices manytelephone calls go uncompleted on the first attempt, with electronic mail, two-way conversion is notessential, which reduces telephone use and saves time.Electronic mail is far more expensive than the postal system, as it must compete for transmissionspace on satellite, telephone, and cable links. But planned increases in satellite communicationsshould lower the price and assist in the spread of electronic mail.Doc24.vn(Adapted from The Heinle Heinle TOEFL Test Assistant Reading)Câu 16: This passage mainly discusses __________.A. the substitution of electronic mail for the postal systemB. using electronic mail in the officeC. the cost of electronic mailD. the uses of electronic mailCâu 17: It can be inferred from the passage that electronic mail __________.A. can never replace the current postal system B. is considered breakthrough invention inoffice workC. is useless without the databases D. is too expensive for most officesCâu 18: The word “customary” in paragraph can be best replaced by “__________”.A. sustainable B. controversial C. outdated D. conventionalCâu 19: The word “their” in paragraph refers to “__________”.A. electronic mails B. forms C. signals D. messagesCâu 20: According to the passage, document can be shown to many people altogether via__________.A. branch offices B. telephone C. postal system D. video screensCâu 21: The word “simultaneously” in paragraph mostly means “__________”A. in seconds B. at the same time C. on average D. at high speedCâu 22: It can be inferred from the passage that __________.A. teleconferences have brought many difficulties in communicationB. more and more people are going to use electronic mail in the futureC. due to the big money spent on managing the system, electronic mail won’t become popularD. electronic mail will be replaced by another more efficient mailing systemCâu 23: According to the passage, one disadvantage of electronic mail is _________.A. it costs lot of money to make use of B. the databases are easily broken downC. two-way conversations are impossible D. the data sent are usually lostCâu 24: The word “it” in paragraph refers to “_________”.A. electronic mail B. two-way conversation C. postal system D.telephone useCâu 25: It can be inferred from the passage that the reason for the preference for electronicmail is __________.A. it is portable and can be used outside the officeB. it is fast and convenientC. it is more economical though little time-consumingD. one speaker can always speak to the other right at the first callMark the letter A, B, or on your answer sheet to show the underlined part that needscorrection from 26 to 30 .Câu 26: The (A) new computer made easier (B) for (C) the students to finish (D) the project.Doc24.vnCâu 27: People today use aspirin to relieve pain, alike (A) past generations (B), who used (C) thebark of the white willow tree in powder (D) form.Câu 28: Although she is so (A) pretty, she is no longer (B) young to enter (C) beautiful (D)contest.Câu 29: Some jellyfish make (A) daily journeys from deep (B) water to the surface and back (C)while others migratehorizontal (D)Câu 30: The first doctor had (A) said that my mother suffered from (B) asthma, but (C) the secondone told that (D) she was healthy.Mark the letter A, B, or on your answer sheet to indicate the sentence that has that samemeaning as the original one from 31 to 35 .Câu 31: Tom told his girlfriend, “Let me tell him if you can’t.”A.
