When reviewing the OG you see that the passages show line numbers down the side of the paragraphs. Does the actual GMAT exam show the same?

no lines on the actual GMAT- if you have taken any of the officials practice CATs you'll see that there are no numbers and same for the official exam administered at the testing center.

NO it doesn't. Suggest you start ignoring the line/para numbers while practicing. It hit me badly when I realized that I will have to find the quoted lines and words by myself in the actual passage.

No they don't. And I find practicing RC on GMATClub directory to be 10x more productive, and closer to what the real deal will be atleast a bit.

there will be no line numbers along the side of the paragraphs in actual GMAT test.
However in some RC passages, GMAC might use bold text to highlight some part of the passage and there will be a question related to this bold text

Check this link for an example from OG
