GRE Verbal Reasoning Section
Learn how to Improve your score
The Verbal Reasoning section of the GRE test last 30 minutes and has two sections each containing 20 multiple-choice questions. There are three types of questions in this section.
i. Reading Comprehension
The Reading Comprehension questions are designed to test a wide range of abilities that are required in order to read and understand the kinds of prose commonly encountered in graduate school.
ii. Text Completion
The Text Completion questions omit crucial words from short passages and ask the test taker to use the remaining information in the passage as a basis for selecting words or short phrases to fill the blanks and create a coherent, meaningful whole.
iii. Sentence Equivalence
The Sentence Equivalence questions consist of a single sentence with just one blank, and they ask you to find two choices that lead to a complete, coherent sentence while producing sentences that mean the same thing.
