Thầy ơi, đây là bài đọc của đề luyện thi, có 1 câu hỏi mà ko có evidence nên ko biết đáp án nào đúng ,mong thầy chỉ giúp ạ. Câu hỏi là: Question 55: Which of the following might be the date of a “blue moon”?
A. January 1                B. February 28             C. April 15                  D. December 31 (đây là đáp án)

Read the following passage and blacken the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions.
There is a common expression in the English language referring to a blue moon. When people say that something happens “only once in a blue moon,” they mean that it happens only very rarely, once in a great while-thinh thoang, lau thiet lau This expression has been around for at least a century and a half; there are references to this expression that date from the second half of the nineteenth century.
The expression “a blue moon” has come to refer to the second full moon occurring in any given calendar month. A second full moon is not called a blue moon because it is particularly blue or is any different in hue from the first full moon of the month. Instead, it is called a blue moon because it is so rare. The moon needs a little more than 29 days to complete the cycle from full moon to full moon. Because every month except February has more than 29 days, every month will have at least one full moon (except February, which will have a full moon unless there is a full moon at the very end of January and another full moon at the very beginning of March). It is on the occasion when a given calendar month has a second full moon that a blue moon occurs. This does not happen very often, only three or four times in a decade.
The blue moons of today are called blue moons because of their rarity and not because of their color; however, the expression “blue moon” may have come into existence in reference to unusual circumstances in which the moon actually appeared blue. Certain natural phenomena of gigantic proportions can actually change the appearance of the moon from Earth. The eruption of the Krakatao volcano in 1883 left dust particles in the atmosphere, which clouded the sun and gave the moon a bluish tint. This particular occurrence of the blue moon may have given rise to the expression that we use today. Another example occurred more than a century later. When Mount Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, the moon again took on –dam nhiemm, a blue tint.

Full moon là trăng tròn làn thứ 2 trong tháng, mà mỗi lần tròn cách nhau 29 ngày.
Bất cứ tháng nào vào 1 tây, 15, 28 tây thì làm vì có được lần thứ 2 ? Nếu lần 1 sớm nhất cũng 1 tây, thì lần 2 = 1 + 29 = 30 tây mới mai ra có lần tròn thứ 2 nhé.
