#### Assessing the Question Level for RC passage

Tue Oct 02, 2012 8:01 pm
Hello there,

Could anyone guide me the way how to gauge the question level of the RC passage (i.e 600 level or 700 level). Some folks have been saying that it depends on the number of questions in the passage. If they are less than 4, the passage/questions is of 600 level and vice versa. Any comments, please ?

Hello, amjadshanu. I'm happy to help you with your question. There is no correlation between the number of questions associated with an RC passage and the difficulty level of the question.

Hey Rebecca,

Rebecca, is it true that OGs (particularly 12 or 10) usually have less number of difficult questions (700 level) and have more of 600 level ?

All of our OG's will have a similar level of questions for each difficulty level from edition to edition, so there would be no difference in the number of difficulty questions.
