Improving Paragraphs

Here are some general hints for Improving Paragraphs.

  1. Read the entire essay quickly to determine its overall meaning. The essay is meant to be a draft, so don't be surprised if you notice errors. Don't linger over those errors.
  2. Make sure that your answer about a particular sentence or sentences makes sense in the context of the passage as a whole.
  3. Choose the best answer from among the choices given, even if you can imagine another correct response.
