Answer14 D
KeywordsScan for the keywords, synonyms and similarities: acceptance, not all diseases, totally eliminated
– diseases = Illness
LocationLook in Para D
ExplanationThe words “continue to spread” and “still fighting to find a better cure” mean that humans cannot control the above-mentioned diseases and still need “a better cure” for them, which is the same as they are not “totally eliminated”. Later in the paragraph, we find a key statement : “…people will always be prone to illness…”
Answer15 C
KeywordsScan for the keywords, synonyms and similarities: examples, physical conditions, human behavior
LocationLook in Para C
ExplanationThe human behavior referred to includes: “the massive number of cars being driven”, and “the cutting down of forests”. The physical conditions which have resulted in large cities are “smog and pollution that cause asthma, lung problems, eyesight issues and more”.
Answer16 F
KeywordsScan for the keywords, synonyms and similarities: reference, classify diseases, basis, extend, geographically
– Classify = categorise
– Spread = extend
LocationLook in Para F
ExplanationRead this line, “work to create a clear way of categorising illnesses, diseases and epidemics into local and global scales. Health geographers can map the spread of illnesses and attempt to identify the reasons behind an increase or decrease in illnesses”.

“Categorising…into local and global scales” can be understood as “how far the extend geographically”. Hence, the information in paragraph F matches the statement.
Answer17 G
KeywordsScan for the keywords, synonyms and similarities: reasons, level of access to healthcare, vary, within a country
– Vary = discrepancy
– Options available = level of access
LocationLook in Para G
ExplanationRead this line, “a very large discrepancy between the options available to people”. “A very large discrepancy” is the same as “vary” and “options available to people” can be seen as “level of access”. In the previous sentence, the author was talking about the availability or the lack of healthcare provision, so we can understand they are “level of access to healthcare”. And the author named some reasons for this large discrepancy – “different social classes, income brackets, and levels of education”.
Answer18 D
KeywordsScan for the keywords, synonyms and similarities: health geography, mixture, academic fields
– Mixture = combination
LocationLook in Para D
ExplanationRead this line intensively, “Health geography is the combination of, on the one hand, knowledge regarding geography and methods used to analyse and interpret geographical information, and on the other, the study of health, diseases and healthcare practices around the world.” “Combination” is the same as “a mixture”. It is a mixture of “knowledge regarding geography”, “methods used to analyse and interpret geographical information”, and “the study of health, diseases and healthcare practices”. Those can be considered as “different academic fields” which, when combined, make a “hybrid science” (= a science which is the product of mixing different disciplines)
Answer19 B

In tropical regions, malaria is widespread. However, in high-altitude deserts, this disease “is much less of a problem”. High-altitude deserts is a type of area, and “much less of a problem” means it is very unusual, or we can consider it as “rare”.
