TEST 1 – READING PASSAGE 1:

  • Questions 1 - 5
Reading Passage 1 below has 5 paragraphs (A-E). Which paragraph focuses on the
information below? Write the appropriate letters (A-E) in
Boxes 1-5 on your answer sheet.
1. The way parameters in the mind help people to be creative.
2. The need to learn rules in order to break them.
3. How habits restrict us and limit creativity.
4. How to train the mind to be creative.
5. How the mind is trapped by the desire for order.
THE CREATION MYTH
A. It is a myth that creative people are born with their talents: gifts from
God or nature. Creative genius is, in fact, latent within many of us,
without our realising. But how far do we need to travel to find the path
to creativity? For many people, long way. In our everyday lives, we
have to perform many acts out of habit to survive, like opening the
door, shaving, getting dressed, walking to work, and so on. If this were
not the case, we would, in all probability, become mentally unhinged.
So strongly ingrained are our habits, though this varies from person to
person, that, sometimes, when a conscious effort is made to be creative,
automatic response takes over. We may try, for example, to walk to work
following a different route, but end up on our usual path. By then it
is too late to go back and change our minds. Another day, perhaps. The
same applies to all other areas of our lives. When we are solving
problems, for example, we may seek different answers, but, often as not,
find ourselves walking along the same well-trodden paths.


B. So,for many people, their actions and behaviours are set in immovable
blocks, their minds clogged with the cholesterol of habitual actions,
preventing them from operating freely, and thereby stifling creation.
Unfortunately, mankind’s very struggle for survival has become a tyranny
– the obsessive desire to give order to the world is a case in point.
Witness people’s attitude to time, social customs and the panoply of
rules and regulations by which the human mind is now circumscribed.


C. The groundwork for keeping creative ability in check begins at school.
School, later university and then work teach us to regulate our lives,
imposing a continuous process of restriction, which is increasing
exponentially with the advancement of technology. Is it surprising then
that creative ability appears to be so rare? It is trapped in the prison
that we have erected. Yet, even here in this hostile environment, the
foundations for creativity are being laid; because setting off on the
creative path is also partly about using rules and regulations. Such
limitations are needed so that once they are learnt, they can be broken.


D. The truly creative mind is often seen as totally free and unfettered. But a
better image is of a mind, which can be free when it wants, and one
that recognises that rules and regulations are parameters, or barriers,
to be raised and dropped again at will. An example of how the human kind
can be trained to be creative might help here. People’s mind are just
like tense muscles, that need to be freed up and the potential unlocked.
One strategy is to erect artifitial barriers or hurdles in solving a
problem. In this way, they are obliged to explore unfamiliar territory,
which may led to some startling discoveries. Unfortunately, the
difficulty in this exercise, and with creation itself, is convincing
people that creation is possible, shrouded as it is so much myth and
legend. There is also an element of fear involved, however subliminal,
as deviating from the safety of one’s own thought patterns is very much
akin to madness. But, open Pandora’s box, and a whole new world unfolds
before your eyes.


E. Lifting barriers into place also plays a major part in helping the mind to
control ideas rather than letting them collide at random. Parameterrs
act as containers for ideas, and thus help the mind to fix on them. When
the mind is thinking laterally, and two ideas from different areas of
the brain come or are brought together, they form a new idea, just like
atoms floating around and then forming a molecule. Once the idea has
been formed, it needs to be contained or it will fly away, so fleeting
is its passage. The mind needs to hold it in place for a time so that it
can recognise it or call on it again. And then the parameters can act
as channels along which the ideas can flow, developing and expanding.
When the mind has brought the idea to fruition by thinking it through to
its final conclusion, the parameters can be brought down and the idea
allowed to float off and come in contact with other ideas.

My answers:

1.E. Because you can find the following text in passage E which shows "The way parameters in the mind help people to be creative":

And then the parameters can act
as channels along which the ideas can flow, developing and expanding.

When the mind has brought the idea to fruition by thinking it through to
its final conclusion, the parameters can be brought down and the idea
allowed to float off and come in contact with other ideas.


2. C: The need to learn rules in order to break them.

Yet, even here in this hostile environment, the
foundations for creativity are being laid; because setting off on the
creative path is also partly about using rules and regulations. Such
limitations are needed so that once they are learnt, they can be broken.

3. A How habits restrict us and limit creativity.

In our everyday lives, we
have to perform many acts out of habit to survive
......If this were
not the case, we would, in all probability, become mentally unhinged

4. D How to train the mind to be creative

An example of how the human kind
can be trained to be creative
might help here.


5. B How the mind is trapped by the desire for order.

Unfortunately, mankind’s very struggle for survival has become a tyranny
the obsessive desire to give order to the world is a case in point

6. C

It is a myth that creative people are born with their talents: gifts from
God or nature.

7. C

But how far do we need to travel to find the path
to creativity? For many people, long way.

8.A


Unfortunately, mankind’s very struggle for survival has become a tyranny

9.D

School, later university and then work teach us to regulate our lives,
imposing a continuous process of restriction, which is increasing
exponentially with the advancement of technology


10.D


Is it surprising then
that creative ability appears to be so rare?

11.True


But a
better image is of a mind, which can be free when it wants, and one
that recognises that rules and regulations are parameters, or barriers,
to be raised and dropped again at will.

12.Not given

13. Not given

14. True

There is also an element of fear involved, however subliminal,
as deviating from the safety of one’s own thought patterns is very much
akin to madness


15. False

The mind needs to hold it in place for a time so that it
can recognise it or call on it again. And then the parameters can act
as channels
along which the ideas can flow, developing and expanding.

1.E.Mình nghĩ clue chỗ này:"Parameterrs
act as containers for ideas, and thus help the mind to fix on them" +
And then the parameters can act as channels along which the ideas can flow, developing and expanding " +the parameters can be brought down and the idea
allowed to float off and come in contact with other ideas. (mình nghĩ ideas được develop,expand,contact với những idea khác bởi
parameters nên parameters in the mind help people to be creative.)
2.C. vì key phrase nằm ở đầu với cuối đoạn C
keeping creative ability in check begins at school.;Such
limitations are needed so that once they are learnt, they can be broken.
3.A.(Đoạn này writer show that habits limit our creatity and the habits we need to survive play a role in this information.)
5.B.Đoạn này show how parameters help the mind to be creative.
4.Vậy câu 4 này là D,vì còn sót lại mỗi câu này thôi.hihi.Ngân hok bit' làm.
6.C.
It is a myth that creative people are born with their talents.=It is not that creative people are born with their talents.
7.C(mình nghĩ đáp án trong đoạn A,măc dù words trong đây không rõ lắm;Đáp án A thì không đúng vì it's myth;Đáp án B sai vì
when a conscious effort is made to be creative,automatic response takes over";D cũng ko đúng vì well-trodden paths prevent creativity.
8.D.trong đoạn B:
Unfortunately, mankind’s very struggle for survival has become a tyranny.
9.A .trong đoạn C:
a continuous process of restriction, which is increasing
exponentially with the advancement of technology;đáp án B và C giống nhau.
10.D.trong đoạn C:
Is it surprising then that creative ability appears to be so rare?
11.Yes.Trong đoạn D
But abetter image is of a mind, which can be free when it wants:and one that recognises that rules and regulations are parameters, or barriers, to be raised and dropped again at wil
12.Not Given.
13.Yes.trong đoạn D:
Unfortunately, the difficulty in this exercise, and with creation itself, is convincing people that creation is possible, shrouded as it is so much myth and legend.
14.Yescũng trong đoạn D:
There is also an element of fear involved, however subliminal, as deviating from the safety of one’s own thought patterns is very much akin to madness.
15.Yes.Mình nghĩ trong đoạn E thì phải.
