Hi Guys,

Below is a very simple, basic, but important list of words which i SCAN for to check & identify any possible error in SC Questions (sorted by Error type):

Parallelism Indicators: and - or.

Tense Indicators: In recent years, Sense, words that trigger time.

Agreement Indicators: is/are - has/have - was/were - plays/play.

Comparision Indicators: As/Like - Than - Equal TO - Compare To - Diffrent from.

Placement Indicators: Only - All - Following.

Those words are error signals, i found them very helpful, if any one want to add to the above list please go ahead!

form of "to be" + past participle = passive voice

For example:

When her house was invaded, Jane had to think of ways to take her revenge.

Apart from what you have mentioned below, IMO -

Idioms (cant list all of them) - they are absolutely important. You can save a lot of time & effort if you know them throughly.
Tenses - Manhattan SC's has them listed.

Words - which, being, having
