I have my exam in 15 days from now and I am struggling in RCs of 700-800 level.
Whenever I am attempting these RCs I am getting 1 question from each RC incorrect.
I really want to improve in RC to get higher score as in mocks my score is stuck at 700.
Could anyone help me what is the right way to analyse these RC questions since analyzing is the best way to improve in RC.
Also,how can I find what is lacking in my approach and how can I verify each word in every options from RC passage ?
Sometimes it gets really difficult for me to verify and end up getting incorrect answer.
There is no single best way to crack an RC, however depending on your approach, there can be more than one in the counter for you.
Firstly, Analyze where you are going wrong.
Is it a single type of question that you are going wrong at? (Say "primary purpose" questions?)
In this case spend all you energy on cracking that kind of questions and before that, know the best strategy to crack such questions.
For instance, "Primary purpose" questions can best be answered by parsing through initial and concluding paragraphs completely and first lines of rest of the paragraphs, by skipping the details.
Are you going wrong in a different kind of question every time.
This is where you probably need to change your approach a bit.
1. You probably are not reading with concentration.
2. You probably are not deducing the author's inferences and tone.
This could be because of few reasons, but the most common reason is that students generally tend to read with an aim to complete the paragraph without completely understanding it. The second thing that may work is taking notes. However, you need good experience to anticipate from which part or sentence of your passage could a potential question arise. Hence the point here is practice and practice till you master it.
Consider giving a kudos if this helps
