GMAT Verbal Question Types:
1: Sentence Correction questions
Sentence correction questions are the most frequent type of question you will encounter in the GMAT Verbal section -- a little bit more than a third of of the questions are of this type, or 14-17 questions total.
In this type of question, you need to pick the best version of the underlined section of a sentence that contains up to two flaws. The first answer choice always repeats the original, which you should select if there are no flaws.
Analyze and draw conclusions from discourse; reason from incomplete data; identify author's assumptions; understand multiple levels of meaning, such as literal, figurative and author's intent.
Abelson's world class reading and analytical skills will teach you what the verbal questions are asking using our proven formulaic strategies.
2: Reading Comprehension questions
You can expect12-15 Reading Comprehension questions (4 reading passages, 3-4 questions on each passage), in which you are required to read a passage and answer various questions about its content and structure. When you get Reading Comprehension questions, the screen splits into an area for the passage and an area for the question and answer choices.
3: Critical Reasoning questions
You can expect 11-14 Critical Reasoning questions, in which you are required to analyze an argument and find the logical solution to the question stem, such as point the main logical flaw in the argument, choose a sentence that weakens/strengthens the argument, and so on.
