Reading Tip: MULTIPLE-CHOICE QUESTIONS
A useful strategy is to use the key words in the question stem – or synonyms of them – to help you identify the correct part of the text. Read the sentence or sentences carefully. Think of your own answer to the question and see which of the options matches it the closest.
Remember that all the options will be mentioned in the text in some way but only one will completely answer the question.
Reading Tip: TRUE, FALSE, NOT GIVEN
Skim read the text quickly before looking at the questions. This will give you a general idea of the structure of the text which will help you locate information quickly and avoid wasting time looking in the wrong part of the text.
Not Given statements are often based on the information you might expect to be in the text but isn’t, and often use words that do appear in the text itself. Read each statement and the relevant part of the text very carefully before deciding whether the ideas are given or not. Make sure you are clear about who is being referred to in the text.
