I always miss on the primary purpose questions in RC,
I narrow down to 2 choices , OA will be in that set of 2, but I will always end up choosing the wrong one.

Some of techniques I am trying to follow is re read the first sentence of the RC and last sentence of RC, keeping the answer choices in mind

pls suggest if you have any techniques or clues you look for to answer these questions.

Thanks in advance for the help

Hi rrkan,

The Kaplan Method for reading comprehension, explained in our classroom courses and in our on-the-shelf books, recommends that you always figure out the author's purpose as you're reading, before you even get to the relevant question. Figuring out the purpose is much easier as you go into the passage than as you re-read it for the third time, and knowing the answer in advance can help you rule out those tempting wrong answer choices. Meanwhile, having the author's primary purpose can also help narrow down answer choices for some of the trickier Inference questions.

Best of luck with your studying!
