Beat Improving Sentences
Care to guess what you have to do for Improving Sentences Questions? That’s right: You have to improve sentences. Improving Sentences questions consist of a single sentence with one underlined word or phrase. Your mission with that underlined portion of the sentence is twofold. First, you have to figure out if there’s a problem with the underlined part. Then, if there is a problem, you have to decide which answer choice fixes the problem. Sometimes—one-fifth of the time, in fact—no error will exist.
The SAT contains 25 Improving Sentences. A group of 11 of the Sentence Improvements appear in the 25-minute Writing timed section (they appear first in that section). A group of 14 Sentence Improvements makes up the entirety of the 10-minute Writing timed section. Groups of Sentence Improvements generally increase in difficulty from the first question in a group to the last question in the group.
