Differentiating Question Types

I am having trouble differentiating “Illustrate” and “Method of Reasoning” question types. Am I right that a method of reasoning could be an illustration of a concept? Please share any perspective you have on strategies to differentiate these question types. Additionally, some of the question stems for must be true questions seem like they could be main point questions. For example, “The passage is structured to lead to which one of the following conclusions” refers to a must be true question. Isn’t it just asking to identify the conclusion, which is what main point questions ask? Thank you!

Hi Mahosmar,

I don't see a specific question attached to your message. Based on the subject line, however, it seems that you are looking to better understand how to differentiate question types.

I'm not sure if you have yet watched the video "Examples of Question Types" within the "Intro to LR" lesson yet, but I would recommend you study this for a little bit to familiarize yourself with typical question stem constructions for the various question types.

If any question types at all are still difficult to identify, then please let us know which question types you would like us to cover in more detail and we will be happy to help!

Best of luck studying :)
