Reading Comprehension


There are 20 questions of two primary types on the Reading Comprehension test.  The first type consists of a reading passage followed by a question based on the text.  Both short and long passages are provided.  The reading passages can also be classified according to the kind of information processing required including explicit statements related to the main idea, explicit statements related to a secondary idea, application, and inference. 

The second type of question, sentence relationships, presents two sentences followed by a question about the relationship between these two sentences.  The question may ask, for example, if the statement in the second sentence supports that in the first, if it contradicts it, or if it repeats the same information.
