Question of the Day (SAT and ACT): Oct. 30, 2013

If you use my archive, you will see the question related to my SAT explanation for that date.)

The answer is A.  There is no mistake.  Get rid of the phrase between the two commas when you read the sentence and it is much easier.  When you do the grammar sections of the ACT and SAT, minimize the sentences by getting rid of extra words when you can.  Using just the key elements to the sentence makes them much clearer.

Let’s see what the ACT folks have for us today.

ACT Question of the Day: Use your “back” button to return to my website after reading the ACT Question of the Day.

The answer is H.  Using my Insertable strategy (Video #4) makes this question a snap.  If you insert any of the other answers into the passage they will either add to or disagree with what you read.  The only one that fits is “a private person.”  It repeats what you are told in lines 74 and 75.

Enjoy you hump day.
