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!
