Hello GMAT experts and friends,

I recently sat the GMAT and got the ESR for it (please see the attached photo). However, there are something that I do not understand.

1) For my critical reasoning part, it says my performance on construction / plan questions are considered weak. What exactly are 'construction / plan questions' and how can I improve on these type of questions?

For my sentence correction, my performance on communication questions are considered weak. What are 'communication questions' and what can I do about it?

Much appreciated and thank you for your time!

Best,

Hello ywp033402 ........ I am not an expert , but, to my understanding :
1. CR construction / plan questions : Are Inference , Evaluate etc
2. SC communication : Idioms, Diction & Meaning Based question

Ideally, Construction/plan questions in CR mean the questions that ask you find the parallel construct and reasoning in the stimulus, but as there is little chance of encountering those type of questions on GMAT, i guess the evaluate questions also qualify the type.
And, Communication questions in SC mean the questions that deal with intended meaning, diction and overall style of the sentence.
