I think I will rate these as easy. from my point of view, medium questions will have atleast 2 clause with lot of verbage, idiom, and/or "as/than/like/such/compared to/in comparison with/ as a result of/ because of' type of sequece which can throw one off.
hard will be, i guess, comparison question, phrase usage, squinting modifiers, restrictive clause, misplaced modifier/dangling modifer etc...
I will post the OA later. I do not think about posting only hard questions or medium level difficulty ones. The purpose here is to let members learn. If you notice, I seldom pose questions. I will start doing so, for two reasons. Firstly, I think new members who are just starting to prep need some easy ones to get confidence and also to start tackling questions. It does not help them if they attempt 10 questions and get all of them wrong. But that doesn't mean I'll always pose easy ones, I'll still get hard ones up here in this forum. Just give me time to look for them.
Secondly, there's been a lot of request for a 1000SC document. I've seen it a long time before, posted here by a member called bigb. That was about a year ago. But I do not know the source of those questions, so I'll not post the document here for download again. There must be a reason why it's not a sticky in the forum for this today. However, I can still get some of those questions out here for discussion, so in that way, members are not mising out much. Let me know if you have a concern or a better approach. I'm always looking out for ways to help members because I've got a lot of help when I was just starting out here.
Ywilfred, Please do not get me wrong. I cannot agree with you more. It is thru questions like these that I have learnt. Your suggestions and questions have always been of great help.
Hey, no problem. I'm not misunderstanding you in any way. I just thought I'd let you know why I posted relatively easy ones to start. I know from personal experience, how important morale and confidence can be. Once a person is confident, he/she will think nothing can get him/her down...
Don't worry, we're all here for one purpose, that is to help each other to learn, isn't it?? Let's keep the good work going!!
