SAT Chemistry Instructor Samantha shows you how to tackle the correct explanation portion of relationship analysis questions on the SAT Chem subject Test.

This is part 2 of a video covering the relationship analysis questions for the SAT chemistry subject test.

We’re going to be looking at how to do correct explanation questions. Now you have two true statements and you’re going to need to decide whether the second statement is the correct explanation of the first.

Step 1 Isolate

We want to isolate the phenomenon in statement 1 and isolate the explanation in statement 2.

Step 2 Evaluate

Now that we’ve isolated, we can evaluate. The second statement should be a direct explanation or a logical conclusion for the phenomenon in the first.

Step 3 Check in Context

This is optional if you’re really sure about your chemistry. However, if you’re a little shaky and you’re not quite sure you have the right
answer, go back and bring in the details.

What was your biggest takeaway from this video tutorial about Tackling Relationship Analysis Questions on the SAT Chemistry Subject Test? Do you have any question for Samantha and Alexis Avila?
