"Keep in the dark about" nghĩa là gì?

'Keep in the dark about something' có từ dark là tối tăm, ngu dốt, không biết gì; vì thế cụm từ này nghĩa là mù mờ/không biết rõ về điều gì.

Ví dụ
Home Ministry was kept in the dark about Naga peace pact.

Tianjin residents have been kept in the dark about fatal blasts, Hong Kong witness says.

Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has rejected claims MPs have been "kept in the dark" about the involvement of British pilots in airstrikes in Syria.

With no public nod to Project Titan, however, and even the bulk of Apple's own staff kept in the dark about the research, Apple is likely loath to file the documents required for such testing. At the very least, it would need to apply for a self-driving vehicle permit from the California DMV.
