Matching Paragraph Headings
Quickly read through the paragraph headings so that you can see what they say, and what’s the paragraph about? Then, after clear in heading, look at the first paragraph. Often only the topic sentence need to be read carefully because the main idea and answer are there – you may be able to just skim the rest. Often only the topic sentence needs to be read carefully because the main idea and answer are there – you may be able to just skim the rest.
Sometimes, however, the answer is not in the topic sentence and the whole paragraph needs to be read more carefully. If a match is not immediately obvious, move to the next one. If you are unsure between two answers at first, put them both in. You may be able to eliminate one answer later if it fits another paragraph better.
There are always more choices of paragraph heading on the list than paragraphs, so be careful when matching them. Watch out for synonyms – often words in the paragraphs and paragraph headings will not be the same; they will be synonyms.
