Dear Friends,

I would like to know following while answering questions in RC section:

How to find out whether author is
suggesting,
complaining,
evaluating,
comparing,
drawing a conflict and giving corrective methods,
supporting etc.

If anybody can update on a little blue print on how to trap these type of questions, I am sure lot would be helped by this.

I think that we need only practice practice and practice...we would find how to manage different types of questions by ourselves...anyway, I'll try to past as many rc passages as possible, so that we can discuss about them...

I think I can help you in this:

Suggesting: when author is indicative , meaning he writes something like Elephant, although being more powerful than Lion, is usally defeted by him. So he suggests here that Elephant is more powerful than Lion and Lion usually defeats Elephant.
Saying he puts things like as if they are facts.

Complaning: it contains words/phrases which go for negativity. e.g. Pollution, if not stopped can lead to heavy destruction and therefore Government must now quit their frivolous attitude. This is complaining.

Evealute: Usually author gives a theory and then says about plus and minus of it without being biased. So basically he is just evaluating the finding/theory/position anything

Compare:- Author talks about two things in seperate paras or altogethers for example, Lion is so powerful that even humans are frightened of it. On the other hand , elephant can scare anybody in this world... So you need to look for phrases/words like these
