Read the text (upto 300 words) and answer the multiple-choice question by selecting the correct response. Only one response is correct.
‘Note the key words in the prompt before you read the text.’
‘Evaluate the response options.’
Read the question before the options and decide what you need to read for. If you are looking for the ‘writer’s main purpose’, you are reading for the overall idea or argument.
If you do not understand a word in the question, check to see whether it has been explained in the passage.
