Improving Sentences
Improving Sentences are the second type of multiple-choice question on SAT II Writing. Each of the 16 Improving Sentences questions consists of a single sentence with one underlined word or phrase. Unlike Identifying Sentence Error questions, Improving Sentences questions do not require you to check out four underlined parts of the sentence to look for an error; only that one underlined part will contain an error. Your job with that underlined portion of the sentence is twofold. First, you must figure out if there is a problem with the underlined part. Then, if there is a problem, you must decide which answer choice fixes the problem. Sometimes— 1/5 of the time, in fact—no error will exist.
The Improving Sentences questions are organized in one group, which is located right after the first group of Identifying Sentence Error questions and before the Improving Paragraphs questions.
