Reading Comprehension-New Project!!



Each day we will be posting 3 tough and long RC passages for practice. There may be new passages or passages which are already discussed in forum!!!

I believe spending 20 minutes/ day for practicing 3 RC passages will help a lot in improving the comprehension speed, skimming the details, and getting tough and tricky RC passages correct, especially when these RC passages appear at the very end of the test.


Day 1:

1. Those who opine lose their impunity when the circumstances

2. Few ideas are more deeply entrenched in our political culture

3. Arguments abound over whether marijuana should be legalized


Day 2:

1. In the mid-1970’s, Walter Alvarez, a geologist, was studying Earth’s

2. It is hard to find a politician who doesn’t have some sort of plan

3. Archaeologists working in two recently discovered limestone

Day 3:

1. The single-celled parasite known as Toxoplasma gondii infects more

2. Adverse selection may be making health insurance prohibitively

3. Given the scarcity of quality professional service providers

Day 4:

1. Despite their acronymic similarity, LEDs and LCDs represent distinct display technologies

2. In April 1841, medical missionary Reverend Peter Parker

3. When A. Philip Randolph assumed the leadership of the Brotherhood

Day 5:

1. Outsourcing, or the allocation of specific aspects of a corporation to a business entity specializing in those areas

2. The historical basis for the King Arthur legend has long been debated by scholars

3. The Seventh Symphony (1812) was, at the time, Beethoven’s last

Day 6:

1. While there is no blueprint for transforming a largely government-controlled economy

2. Although bacteria are unicellular and among the simplest autonomous forms of life

3. As to when the first people populated the American subcontinent is hotly debated.


Project Resumed Today(Aug 26th 2015) and will continue as long as I have new passages to post :-D

Day 7:

1. Young Enterprise Services (YES) is a federal program created

2. Nearly all the workers of the Lowell textile mills of Massachusetts

3. Until recently, Ascaris azure, known as the Diaz blueworm, and Ascaris


Day 8:

1. Items that seem unremarkable today might once have altered the course of history

2. For years, employers in the United States have counted on a steady flow of laborers from Mexico willing to accept low-skilled, low paying jobs.

3. Despite their acronymic similarity, LEDs and LCDs represent distinct display technologies

is anyone going to take care of this post? I find it really good idea but without nobody taking care of it, it becomes useless.

Dear All,

I have just finished to read notes on RC from Manhattan. Besides, I have started to read notes from Veritas RC. However, there is a huge contrast between these sources. Such as, Manhattan claims that when one reads a passage she/he must make a diagram to be able to answer the questions. As for Veritas RC book, it notes that diagramming is meaningless...

To what extent do you agree/disagree with these approaches?

Hey mrslee : First of all, try to follow only one guide!! For example: you can follow Veritas prep for SC, Powerscore CR bible for CR and MGMAT for RC. But DONOT mix them like you did while preparing for RC..

Follow only one principle. Too many principle will screw your preparation. If you started reading for RC with Veritas Prep continue with that. Each book is written by experts who feel that these are best approach. Every person has his/her own opinion.

Hope it helps!!

Thanks Gnpth,

What is your take on on this issue? To go for Veritas, or Manhattan?
