35 Rhetorical Skills Questions
On the ACT English Test, you'll have 45 minutes to answer 75 questions—that's about 30 seconds per question! The test is divided into 5 passages, each with about 15 questions.
You're not being tested on spelling or vocabulary. Rather, the ACT English Test is designed to assess your understanding of the conventions of English—punctuation, grammar, sentence structure—and of rhetorical skills. Rhetorical skills are more strategic including things like organizing the text and making sure it's styled clearly.
ACT English Question Format
Almost all of the English questions follow a standard format. A word, phrase, or sentence in a passage is underlined. You're given 4 options: to leave the underlined portion alone ("NO CHANGE," which is always the first choice), or to replace it with one of the three alternatives.
Some English questions don't follow the standard format—usually about 10 per exam. These items pose a question and offer four possible responses. In many cases, the responses are either "yes" or "no," with an explanation.
Many of the nonstandard questions occur at the end of a passage. Some ask about the meaning, purpose, or tone of individual paragraphs or of the passage as a whole. Others ask you to evaluate the passage. And still others ask you to determine the proper order of words, sentences, or paragraphs that have been scrambled in the passage.
