Posted by dadangiskandar on July 27, 2009






  1. 1.       Skim the reading passage to determine the main idea and the overall organization of ideas in the passage. You do not need to understand every detail in each passage to answer the questions correctly. It is therefore a waste of time to read the passage with intent of understanding every single detail before you try to answer the question
  2. 2.       Look ahead at the questions to determine what types of questions you must answer.   Each type of question is answered in a different way.
  3. 3.       Find the section of the passage that deals with each question.     The question-type tells you exactly where to look in the passage to find correct answers.
  • For main idea questions, look at the first line of each paragraph.
  • For directly and indirectly answered detail questions, choose a key word in the question, and skim for that key word (or a related idea) in order in the passage.
  • For vocabulary questions, the question will tell you where the word is located in the passage
    • For where questions, the answers are found anywhere in passage.
  1. 4.       Read the part of the passage that contains the answer carefully.    The answer will probably be in the same sentence (or one sentence before or after) the key word or idea
  2. 5.       Choose the best answer to each question from the four answer choices listed in your test book. You can choose the best answer according to what is given in the appropriate section of the passage, eliminate definitely wrong answers, and mark your best guess on the answer sheet


 The following chart outlines the key information that you should remember about main idea question.

    • What is the main idea of the passage?

    • Which of the following would be the best title?
WHERE TO FINDTHE ANSWER The answer to this type of question can generally be determined by looking at the first sentence of each paragraph.
  1. Read the first line of each paragraph.
  2. Look for a common theme or idea in the first lines.
  3. Pass your eyes quickly over the rest of the passage to     check that you really have found the topic sentence(s).
  4. Eliminate any definitely wrong answers and choose the best answer from the remaining choices.

PASSAGE TWO (Questions 3-4)




       The extremely hot and humid weather that occurs in the United States in July and August is commonly called the “dogs days” of summer. This name comes from the star Sirius, which is known as the Dog Star. Sirius is the brightest visible star, and in the hot summer months it rises in the east at approximately the same time as the Sun. As ancient people   saw this star rising with the Sun when the weather was at its hottest, they believed that Sirius was the cause of the additional heat; they believed that this bright star added its heat to the heat of the Sun, and these two together made summer weather so unbearably hot.

 PASSAGE THREE (Questions 5-6)









       The term “primitive art” has been used in a variety of ways to describe works and     styles of art. One way that this term has been used is to describe the early period within      the development of a certain style of art. Another way that this term has been used is to describe artists who have received little professional training and who demonstrate a nontraditional naiveté in their work.       A wonderful example of this second type of primitive artist is Grandma Moses, who    spent all her life living on a farm and working at tasks normally associated with farm life.She did not begin painting until she reached the age of seventy-six, when she switched to painting from embroidery because the arthritis in her hands made embroidery too   difficult.
