  • Question Types: Connections

    Connections questions ask about how two events, characters, or ideas are related. The three most common connections types are cause-and-effect, compare-and-contrast, and sequential connections.

  • Question Types: Vocab-in-Context

    Vocab-in-Context questions require you to deduce the meaning of a word or phrase by using the context in which the word or phrase appears. You can recognize Vocal-In-Context questions because the wording of the question stem.
