Passage: October 94 LSAT(test 12)
Questions: 1-8
Theme: Modern Architecture
Hit c for tips
1. This is a book review passage.
2. In book review passages, differentiate between the viewpoints of passage author and those of the book author
3. Don’t let wordy choices suck you in. Roughly rephrase the answer. Go from the stem to the passage, pick up the gist, and then scan the choices with the author’s
ideas in mind, dismissing those that don’t begin to click. The only one that’s worth your extra time and thought is the correct one!
4. For questions which ask for "Least Supports", look out for four choices which support than one which doesnt support.
5. Always read question carefully
6. Note: Hot lines in any passage are the first third, plus the first and last sentences of each
paragraph. Those lines always yield points — here, for instance, they unlock Q.’s 1, 3,4, 5, and 7!

Wrong Answer Choices Forms
1. Repeats a point mentioned in the passage opening statement, which is then left behind.
2. Contradicts the passage
3. Out of Scope
Suggestion while Reading Answer Choices for General Questions:

Incorrect choices in global questions are often wrong for reasons that may elude you if you read them too quickly. Read every one with care, and don’t endorse any choice
before considering whether it’s consistent with the text’s topic, scope, and purpose.
So dont read quickly. Take every choice see if its supported by passage. There might differences between words such as

1. Compare X to older Theories
2. Compare X to older Theories of relativity

Second choice is correct in case the passage talks about specific theories.
For detailed Question, like, According to the passage type question:

Never try to answer an explicit text question on a hunch or a vague remembrance of
the text. Use the information (or line reference) in the question stem to find the relevant piece(s) of text and reread, reread, reread.
So for Detailed Questions

1. GO back to passage and check whether this choice is true
2. Possible answer choices can be
1. Opposite
2. distorts the text
3. comparison
If you didn’t go back to the text and reread, all of the choices may have looked good
to you. Rereading, contrary to what you may think, will actually save time, by
allowing you to throw out incorrect choices in short order.
For detailed questions, like, According to the passage, go back to passage and recheck each choice, saves time!!

Don’t nitpick over incorrect choices. Worrying about their precise meaning will tie
you up if you’re not careful. Only one choice will be categorically correct. Once
you’ve found it, quickly discard the other choices.

How should you react to timing and paragrpahs when a passage describes in details about something, which is very hard to understand?
Ex: The proposed legislation would cause many barriers..some of the barriers include...<Starts explaining those barriers>
If you are pressed on time, and you dont know whether you are going to get a question on that piece, I would say read it 1 time, full concentratedly, If you get it get it, else...you can comeback when a question comes on it and dig deeper into it.
When a question stem provides a line reference, the correct answer can be found by
reading the lines around that reference—i.e., by getting a sense of the context in
which the relevant term or detail appears.

How to handle abstract, tough, passages in Reading Comprehension
Many of you may have found this a difficult passage because of its rather abstract nature. Don’t worry if you don’t understand all of the points made by the author—
you’re not going to be asked about most of them. The most important thing to pick up on in a passage like this one is the author’s critical tone—that’s what’ll really help
you to answer questions.
