2) Problem and solution
3) Cause and effect
4) General principle and specific example
5) Contrast or contradiction
6) Analysis or expansion of a claim
7) Reinforcement of a statement
8) Drawing a conclusion or summing up
The sentence relationship type of reading comprehension questions on the Accuplacer exam measure your ability not only to read carefully and understand what you have read, but also to draw logical relationships between the information given.
Since our online practice tests are in the same format as the actual Accuplacer, each of our practice tests contains ten sentence relationship questions.
