    Two small but effective strategies have improved my accuracy in assumption questions.

    i hope it helps u.

    1) whenever u come across an assumption question, the first thing u should figure out is the flaw in the argument made by the author. Just ask urself what could be the possible flaw in the argument. more often than not the answer choice which will negate this flaw made by the author will be the assumption made by the author.

    2) if u r confused between two choices, just make one of the answer choices as false n check whether the argument still holds its intended meaning. if it still makes ny sense then that answer choice u can eliminate.
