GRE Revised General Test: Verbal Reasoning Question Types
The GRE Verbal Reasoning section of the GRE® revised General Test contains
three types of questions:
- Reading Comprehension
- Text Completion
- Sentence Equivalence
Reading Comprehension questions appear in sets; Text Completion and Sentence
Equivalence questions are independent.
Reading Comprehension Questions:
There are three types of Reading Comprehension questions:
- Multiple-choice Questions: Select One Answer Choice: These are
the traditional multiple-choice questions with five answer choices of which
you must select one.
- Multiple-choice Questions: Select One or More Answer Choices:
These provide three answer choices and ask you to select all that are
correct; one, two or all three of the answer choices may be correct. To gain
credit for these questions, you must select all the correct answers, and
only those; there is no credit for partially correct answers.
- Select-in-Passage: The question asks you to click on the sentence
in the passage that meets a certain description. To answer the question, you
choose one of the sentences and click on it; clicking anywhere on a sentence
will highlight it.
