Answer the Questions in the Order They Appear
Answer the Questions in the Order They Appear
Answer ACT English questions in the order in which they appear. This suggestion is really just common sense. After all, the questions appear in a certain order for a reason: a question at the beginning deals with the beginning of the passage, a question in the middle deals with the middle of the passage, and so on. An organization question in the middle of a passage won’t ask you to reorganize the entire passage or a faraway section of the passage. It will ask you to reorganize the material directly to the left of the question. Rhetorical Skills questions on the passage as a whole appear at the end of the passage, and what better time to answer those questions that deal with the entire passage than at the end?
Organization of Usage/Mechanics and Rhetorical Skills Questions
Questions on the English Test do not appear in order of difficulty. On many passages, you tend to see easy Usage/Mechanics questions near the beginning and relatively difficult Rhetorical Skills questions at the end, but there is no set rule about the order of their appearance.
