To those who weren't good at RC in the beginning and got significantly better through practice,
I would appreciate if you could give me some advice!

    Hey! I think the biggest thing to keep in mind with RC is that you should always be looking for main ideas as opposed to hyper-analyzing every detail in the passage. As long as you're able to map out the structure of the passage, it will become easier to separate trap answers from right answer. Another thing to keep in mind is that every right answer, even inference questions, will always be defended by something written in the passage. This test is not designed to make you read between the lines. For questions that you miss in RC, try going back to the passage and seeing what line would have allowed you to get to the right answer. I hope that was helpful and let me know if you have any other questions!
