SC 1 minute

QS 2 mintes

You should not spend more than 5 minutes in reading a passage. Then each question should be answered within a minute.
So If your passage has 5 questions.

Then it translate to 2 min per question.

However if your passage has less questions, say 3.
Then you are taking around 2.66 min which very high.

Try to keep it around 2 min per question, which also includes 5 mins for reading the entire passage. The quicker you read the passage, the more time you have to answer the questions.
