And I never read the text twice,even never go through the text and I only notify some special sentences which are related to the questions below. Now I know it's not a right way to do this kind of excercise.

Thanks again for helping me. :D

I did the same thing before. I only skimmed the text and paid attention to what I was asked to answer. You can try to eliminate this habit by reading short stories, novels, or anything that is in your level. Take your time and you'll be improved since you don't have to force yourself to answer something.

For general understanding, there is another exercise that I like to give.

I ask my students to reduce every paragraph to one or two sentence that express the main message.

At the end, they have to put these sentences together into a summary of the text.

I find that this really helps my students' understanding of the main points of a text.

Try this with some short texts that you already have from your coursebook or some other source within your level.
