Need some help with RC general questions.
I just picked up the RC section & am facing issues with the general questions, questions like:
1) what is the main purpose of the passage / point the author is trying to make
2) What is the role of the third paragraph / how is 2nd paragraph related to 3rd etc...
I am a non native English speaker, when I read the passage I am able to understand pretty much everything except the MAIN POINT. I picked up MGMAT RC
book, It is pretty good & has god concepts tips & tricks.
But when I answer the general questions, I don't seem to have confidence answering them, I am usually able to eliminate 2 out of 5, but the rest 3 I find hard to shortlist........I think this is also one of the reasons I often get the specific detail questions wrong.
I follow every thing the book tells to.....make a headline list/skeletal sketch while reading...etc.......but that doesn't seem to be working. Any suggestion to improve the comprehension of the passage........especially to answer general questions????
