If you’re always stuck between two answer choices, the problem isn’t your reading comprehension – it’s that you’re getting tricked or deceived by one of the wrong answer choices. In these situations, your best bet is to focus more on the WRONGNESS of the answer choices than the rightness. Remember: four of the answers are WRONG. They are factually, objectively, without-question wrong – so if you have two choices left, one of them must be WRONG. With that in mind, stop focusing on what you like or what’s “better” about the choices, and instead only focus on what’s WRONG with them. For one answer choice, you’ll find that there’s an objective problem – there must be. For the other, you won’t. If you focus exclusively on errors, eliminating rather than picking, and combine that with your more focused reading, you’ll see this error fade away.
