Hi All,

Can anyone please let me know what can be the "level" of this particular passage that is on O.G-12, Pg no. 390 containing 9 questions.

It took me 40 mins to answer the questions. However, i got 8 correct out of 9. I am still furious because it was difficult for me to comprehend.

Thanks & Regards

i did it just some days ago.

As a general rule you should spend on a passage this: # of question x 2 = total time

So in this passage you should spend 18 minutes better if they are 16 max 19 -20 minutes (the latter, however is an extreme hypothesis in my opinion)

This passage for sure was 700 + level.

I suggest you to break it into chuncks (alias paraghraphs) take notes in brief and understand the concepts behind very well

if you need do not esitate to ask

Generally the more difficult rc passages are arranged toward the end of the rc section in the og book.

But there is a lot of variation. Hard passages may be difficult to read..you may also have short one-paragraph passages that may read easy but may have difficult main idea questions that can be tricky.
