Editing & Revising Paragraphs
The Improving Paragraphs section of a standardized test presents a draft of a short essay, which you must read and answer questions about. Many questions require you to understand the essay as a whole. For example, a question might ask about a particular sentence in the context of the paragraph it is from. The questions might provide a variety of editing options and ask which revision is most needed. When there are a few choices that would work, how do you know which one to choose? The tips and practice questions here will arm you with the expertise to tackle this section on editing and revising.
