The content provides an in-depth analysis of how to approach comparative questions on the GRE, specifically focusing on identifying the relationship between two passages or parts of passages.
  • Comparative questions require understanding the relationship between passages, often before looking at the question itself.
  • A unique aspect of some comparative questions is comparing the entirety of one passage with just a part of another.
  • The example provided illustrates how to dissect answer choices by comparing theoretical and practical aspects of passages.
  • The correct answer choice (D) is identified by matching the theory presented in one passage with the argument in another, supporting the importance of understanding the underlying relationship.
  • Incorrect answer choices are eliminated through careful analysis of the passages' content, intent, and the specific language used in the options.
