ability to understand complex language material in short paragraphs and answer questions regarding them
questions on stylistic and rhetorical aspects of a short passage including corrections or modifications of particular sentences
ability to understand relationships in statements or short passages and being able to draw reasonable conclusions/inferences from them.
