On the ACT English Section, you can expect to see questions about specific sentences from the passage, as well as questions that ask about the passage as a whole. The latter will ask you to evaluate the purpose, find the main idea of the passage, or provide you with a summary and ask you to question its accuracy. Be sure to pay attention to the primary focus of the passage; one method for doing this is to look back at the introduction and conclusion of the passage. Come to your answer by process of elimination in order to determine the best answer for the question.
