Language and Writing section is Passage based and each passage is accompanied with 11 questions. Every question in the passage is of multiple-choice one. You’ve to answer 44 questions in 35 minutes. 

 

Tips and Tricks are discussed below to overcome Language and Writing section problems.

 

 

BRUSH UP ON GRAMMAR 

 

The Language & Writing  Test doesn’t just test your knowledge of grammar, but it makes up a big portion of it. The Standard English Conventions subscore is based on 20 out of 44 questions, or about 5 questions per passage, and I find it is the easier of the two subscores to work on.

 

 

WATCH OUT FOR AGREEMENT 

 

Errors in subject-verb or pronoun-antecedent agreement are difficult for students to catch. Often, the sentence separates the two related parts using prepositional phrases, parentheticals, or appositives.

 

 

COMMAS AND IN-SENTENCE PUNCTUATION 

 

Many SAT test takers are uncomfortable with commas and other types of in-sentence punctuation like dashes, semi-colon, colons, and parentheses. If you find yourself in this situation, learn when you can use each type of punctuation and when you can’t.

 

 

FIGURE OUT THE STYLE 

 

The passages on the Language and Writing Test are unfinished drafts, and they each have a different intended audience or level of formality.

 

 

CONSIDER THE WHOLE PASSAGE 

 

Speaking of a passage’s style, you should consider the passage as a whole. Many students only look at the particular sentence for each question, and maybe the sentences surrounding it before deciding their answer.
