Aaron of Prepped and Polished shows you how to quickly and efficiently find reasons for your answers on rhetoric based questions on the SAT and ACT tests.

When dealing with either the SAT writing language section or the ACT English section, it’s important to always determine what type of question you are trying to answer in each section.

If you are dealing with the rhetoric section, typically, this is when the portion of the test asks you a question as to something: what does this do, or does this work? Typically, we see questions asking if the author should add this or if the author should delete this.

When you start seeing these questions, you should underline what it is that they are looking for. If they are asking for the most concise answer, then we have to look for the most concise choice. That gets the point across and is correct when dealing with rhetoric questions. Typically, we don’t have to worry about either grammar or punctuation.

Usually, the author says that assuming all are logical, correct, and comprehensive, which choice works best. We’re asking here if it fits within the sentence or within the paragraph.
