To answer or not to answer, that is the question

I can't seem to find a firm answer. If I run out of time on a section, is it better strategy to answer all of the questions in hope that I get some right by chance... or is it better to not answer the questions and leave them blank?

    Unequivocally it is better to guess than leave any blank.

    No points get deducted for guessing. The only way one gets a point deducted is if it is wrong, and no answer is 100% wrong. So if you are running out of time start guessing you have a higher chance of getting points then not answering.

    You have a 20% chance of guessing a right answer if you run out of time and a 20% chance of gaining another. If you leave it blank you have a complete 0% chance of getting no points.

    BUT say you leave 4 blank and you have 1 minute left on the section. Pick an escape answer choice and pick that for ALL of the questions. My go to is B on RC and C on LR. Pick 4 C's. Don't mix up your guesses unless you've already marked off wrong answer choices.

    Ok so I was taught that if you don't finish all the questions and don't have enough time, guess on the rest. Basically, you have a chance of getting the ones you guessed on right. There is no incentive to leave them blank so you might as well quickly guess the same letter for the rest you didn't answer. So from here on out, if you have like 30 seconds left or maybe less, figure out which letter you like best, and use that letter and quickly guess on the rest.
