SAT Instructor Terri K. shows how you to tackle paired multiple choice questions on the SAT Reading Test by following some basic strategies.

Here are some specific strategies on how to approach paired multiple-choice questions and remember it’s okay to work on them both at once

  1. Read the passage actively and underline key facts, dates, etc. This is evidence and you may have already found the evidence you need to answer a question.
  2. Read and find the best answer to the first question. Use textual evidence: FAQ, date, words that an author uses to signal his or her point of view.
  3. Look at the answer choices for the second (evidence) question carefully. Perhaps rereading particular parts of the passage will make something more clear or will draw your attention to a crucial detail that you overlooked.
  4. Revisit your answer to the first question. You may reconsider your answer based on the new information. Remember, the questions must support one another.
  5. Don’t overthink it or second-guess yourself too much.
