Explain 32 Đáp án tập luyện đọc Tiếng Anh Answers and Explanations 1) A deteriorate (verb): to make or become worse or inferior in character, quality, value, etc In the first paragraph, we learn that Mary's grandmother's health "began to deteriorate," and that Mary drove a great distance to visit her grandmother every few days In paragraph 2, we learn that Mary's grandmother was in the hospital We can infer from these statements that the word deteriorate expresses a decline or worsening of Mary's grandmother's health The opposite of that would be if Mary's grandmother's health improved Therefore (A) is correct To increase means to become greater or larger Health cannot become greater or larger Therefore (B) is incorrect To adjust means to conform or adapt Adapting is not the opposite of getting worse Therefore (C) is incorrect To accumulate means to collect or gather Collecting is not the opposite of getting worse Therefore (D) is incorrect 2) B captivate (adjective): strongly attracted; filled with wonder and delight In the second paragraph, the story says that Mary was "always captivated" by "the rough waters churning at the intersection of the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers." In addition, the story says that Mary "preferred to take meandering back roads to her grandmother's hospital" because she wanted to see the rivers We can infer from this that Mary was willing to take longer to get to her destination because she thought that the rivers were beautiful, and that Mary was attracted to the sight of the waters The word fascinated means to be intensely attracted or having your attention fixated Therefore (B) is correct Energize means to invigorate or activate, not to attract or delight While Mary may have been energized by beauty, the story does not offer any information to prove this was true Therefore (A) is incorrect Humbled means made to feel modest or insignificant Feeling insignificant is not the same as feeling strongly attracted Therefore (C) is incorrect When someone is relaxed, he or she is freed from strain or tension This is different from being attracted to or delighted by something Therefore (D) is incorrect 3) A monotonous (adjective): lacking in variety; tediously unvarying In the beginning of the story, the author writes that Mary "hated highway driving, finding it ugly and monotonous She preferred to take meandering back roads to her grandmother's hospital." We can infer from this that Mary found the monotonous road ugly, and preferred the meandering (winding and indirect) route more 33 enjoyable Since something monotonous is different from winding and indirect, it can be inferred that monotonous means straightforward, plain, or unvarying Tedious means boring or tiresome by dullness This is very similar to lacking in variety Therefore (A) is correct Confusing means puzzling or difficult to follow A straight highway would be less confusing than meandering roads Therefore (B) is incorrect Nervewracking means intensely distressing to the nerves While some people may find highway driving distressing, there is no information in the story that tells us Mary does Therefore (C) is incorrect Time-consuming means taking lots of time A direct highway route would take less time than meandering back roads Therefore (D) is incorrect 4) D The flowers "swayed in the wind as if they were whispering poems to each other." This line describes the flowers by using words that would normally describe human actions Only people can whisper poems to each other, so this activity is uniquely human Therefore (D) is correct Vernacular means the dialect of a particular geographical area This line is not written in dialect, but in standard English Therefore (A) is incorrect Assonance indicates the repetition of identical or similar vowel sounds This kind of repetition is not present in this line Therefore (B) is incorrect Foreshadowing means the use of hints to indicate what is to come The flowers swaying in the wind not contain hints about what is to come in the story Therefore (C) is incorrect 5) B A ritual is an established habit or routine In paragraph 6, we learn that "Mary began carrying scissors in the car during her trips to visit her grandmother She would quickly glide onto the shoulder, jump out of the car, and clip a bunch of flowers." Since she did this each time she visited her grandmother, these actions can be described as a habit or routine Therefore (B) is correct Monotonous means lacking in variety to the point of boredom While Mary's stops to cut flowers to her grandmother were repetitive, there is nothing in the story that indicates that Mary found these stops boring Therefore (A) is incorrect Regret is a sense of disappointment or loss over something that could have gone differently Mary does not regret stopping for flowers; indeed, she looks forward to it Therefore (C) is incorrect Torturous means painful or causing suffering There is no information in the story that stopping for flowers causes Mary pain or suffering Therefore (D) is incorrect 6) C In the third paragraph, the story says that the wildflowers "swayed in the wind as if they were whispering poems to each other." The story is about how picking wildflowers on the way to visit her grandmother became a meaningful part of the last days Mary and her grandmother spent together Poetry is also a meaningful way of communicating for many people Therefore (C) is correct 34 The story takes place in the fall, but the setting is not a significant part of the story Therefore (A) is incorrect While the story does describe Mary's time on the road, that is only part of the story It is where part of the story took place, but it does not capture the full meaning of the impact of the flowers on Mary's grandmother Therefore (B) is incorrect None of the actions in the story relate to a future purpose or have to with living for tomorrow Therefore (D) is incorrect 7) C In the last paragraph, Mary arrives at the hospital to find her grandmother "weak and unresponsive." However, when Mary held her grandmother's hand, "she felt a squeeze on her fingers." Since Mary's grandmother squeezed Mary's hand, we can infer that Mary's grandmother knew that Mary was with her, and wanted to communicate that Since this is the last communication that Mary and her grandmother have, it is their last "conversation," even though no words are spoken Therefore (C) is correct Mary's grandmother was too weak to have a splendid conversation with her She is too weak to anything but squeeze her hand Therefore (A) is incorrect Although Mary's grandmother was "very weak and unresponsive," she was able to communicate with Mary by squeezing her hand Therefore, (B) is incorrect While Mary's grandmother probably would have liked the flowers Mary brought, it is unclear from the story whether her grandmother was even aware the flowers were there However, she is aware of Mary's presence, and made happy by it, as we know because she squeezes Mary's hand Therefore (D) is incorrect 8) C The passage tells us that Mary hated driving on the highway because it was "ugly and monotonous," and that Mary "preferred to take meandering back roads" because she was captivated by "the beauty of the rough waters" that she was able to see on that drive This tells us that Mary would rather take longer to get where she is going in order to enjoy beautiful scenery Therefore, we can infer that Mary is not impatient because she is willing to take a longer route This eliminates option (I) This information also allows the reader to infer that Mary is drawn towards beauty, because she deliberately alters her course to one that is more beautiful This supports option (II) In paragraph five, we learn that "Mary was overjoyed by the ability of the flowers to wake something up inside her ailing grandmother." After that, Mary brings flowers to her grandmother each time she visits These actions show that Mary loves her grandmother This supports option (III) Therefore, (C) is correct 9) C lucid (adjective): mentally sound; sane or rational; intelligible; clear; easily understood Paragraph says Mary's grandmother "seemed more lucid than usual She thanked Mary for the flowers, commented on their beauty and asked where she had gotten them Mary was overjoyed by the ability of the flowers to wake something up inside her grandmother." We can infer from these statements that when Mary's grandmother was more lucid, she was awake, able to see what was around her and able to speak with Mary about it Muddled can mean confused or not clearthinking Not clear-thinking is the opposite of clear Therefore (C) is correct False means untrue Untrue is not the opposite of clear Therefore (A) is incorrect Realistic means showing an awareness and acceptance of reality Accepting reality is related to being mentally sound It is not the opposite of clear or mentally sound Therefore (B) is incorrect Determined means decided or resolved Resolved is not the opposite of clear or mentally sound Therefore (D) is incorrect 35 10) C In paragraph 5, we learn that "Mary was overjoyed by the ability of the flowers to wake up something inside her ailing grandmother." In the next paragraph it says, "Each time Mary placed the flowers in the pitcher, her grandmother's eyes would light up and they would have a splendid conversation." We can infer from these statements that the flowers in some way helped Mary's grandmother communicate with Mary Therefore (C) is correct Although Mary does find natural beauty in the flowers by the roadside, her opinion is that beauty is the exception, not the rule, on the highway Therefore (A) is incorrect While taking the time to stop and collect the flowers might give Mary time to compose herself before visiting her grandmother, there is nothing in the story that suggests that the flowers serve that purpose Therefore (B) is incorrect Though the flowers may make the hospital room more pleasant, that is not what they signify most to Mary The connection and communication with her grandmother through the flowers are much more important to her Therefore (D) is incorrect 36 ... ôn tập thi tốt với mẹo làm thi trắc nghiệm môn tiếng anh Các loại câu hỏi thường xuyên xuất phần đọc hiểu đề thi THPT Quốc gia môn Tiếng Anh (Ảnh: Minh họa) Lời khuyên cho sĩ tử làm đọc hiểu đọc. .. cho đọc hiểu – Bước 3: kiểm tra lại từ đầu đến cuối, tìm sai sót sửa có Thời gian khoảng 30 giây – phút – Mẹo làm thi trắc nghiệm môn tiếng anh phần đọc hiểu – Bước 1: Hãy đọc mạch thật nhanh... làm thi trắc nghiệm môn tiếng anh thật tốt – Lướt qua lượt đề thi: phát đề, giám thị cho ta 5-10p để kiểm tra đề có thi u sót, sứt mẻ không Hãy tranh thủ thời gian này, quí báu đấy, lướt đề nhanh
