Important vocabulary should be written in the margins or presented orally. 
I think it is false because unimportant vocabulary can be presented orally, but important one shouldn't be.
and No.6
isn;t it true that synonym are words related to a certain word through context?

Hi Hye Yeon Shin,

Well, let's take a look at your questions.

I agree with what you are saying, but important vocabulary should be written in the margins, and/or presented orally.  Don't think that "presented orally" just means a quick presentation.  It depends on the teacher, but by presenting it orally, a teacher could give a good explanation of what the word means, and this will hopefully help the students remember the word.  That is a tricky question though.

Secondly, in regards to the sixth question, I have to disagree with you.  A synonym is a word of a similar meaning.  So, like we discussed in class, bake or fry are synonyms of the word "cook".  Words like pot or spoon are not synonyms of the word "cook".  However, they are related to the word "cook" through context.  Words related to another word through context are words that "surround the original word", and might be used when talking about that word.  Synonyms are just words of  a similar meaning.

I hope that helps!  Try not to be discouraged.  Making mistakes is an important part of learning, and they will only help you improve further. 

Have a wonderful day and good luck on all future quizzes!
