The most recent trend is for test takers to see 4 RC passages. The first two usually have 4 questions each and the latter two have 3 questions each.

There's no "rule", however - you could see anywhere from 3-5 passages, with 3-5 questions per passage.

Agree with Sid. Expect 4, but it can range from 3-5.

I think it could be anywhere from 3-4, But less than 5. Last time, I took a test on GMAT prep, I had 4 RC passages. I hope this helps.
