Integrated Reasoning Section: Two-Part Analysis

What The Questions Look Like:

A brief paragraph with a scenario or problem.

A question that asks you to make two choices based on the scenario or problem.  The choices are always connected to each other (either opposite scenarios or two components required to complete a task).

A table with a column for each component presented in the question and rows of possible options. You will only have to make two selections for this table.

 

Strategies:

Read the data carefully and make a list of any relevant information.  This list will help you when you’re selecting your two answer choices.

Read the question carefully. Pay close attention to how the question describes the information presented in the answer-choice table, and make sure you understand exactly what the question is asking you to do.

Analyze all your available answer choices. Do not select an answer for either column until you’ve analyzed the options presented in each row.

Only make two answer choices.  You must select one choice in each of the first two columns of the response table.  Do not select more than two choices!

Remember that the same answer choice might be correct for both columns.
