Is it better to read each and every text on RC (except details/examples) or just skim through the texts related to MAIN POINT / GIST
Although from web info I got to know latter is preffered but it is very arduous task to handle while dealing with detail/inference questions asking on whole passage

There are many suggestions from experts about the strategy to deal with RC passages. I think that you should try some to know which one is suitable for you. Sometimes the best one doesn't work with you.

Try it both ways and do what ends up working better for you. I'm glad you mentioned 'except details/examples', because you definitely should be skimming those, no matter what. As soon as you realize something is just a detail - or is just repeating something you already read earlier - speed up and skim. Beyond that, you might do better on RC by spending more time on your first read-through, or you might do better by doing your first read-through more quickly.

Don't forget that you can always reread parts of the passage if you happen to be asked a question about them. And if you see a really nasty detail or inference question that covers the whole (long) passage, why not just guess on it and save yourself some time?
