This made it easier to find bad answers. I think you're talking about the prescriptive/descriptive language; that was a bitch because the perspectives were all jumbled together in the paragraphs. I think I had a few minutes at the end and legitimately could not figure out one of the questions because the passage was so confusing. Other two passages = easy.
UNESCO was fairly easy to read, passage B was especially straightforward, as you noted. However, I think two of the questions were really difficult. On RC the difficulty can lie in either the passage or the Q's. I don't know about prescriptivism/descriptivism, I feel like that one might vary a lot in difficulty depending on how familiar one is with that topic. Being a bit of a grammar/linguist nerd myself, I was really comfortable with all the points being made in the pasage.
Despite the fact the UNESCO was of different style than the usual, I also found it far easier to read (and quicker too!) than most RC passages. I had an experimental RC as well, and found the actual one to be easier. That being said, I'm not sure that I got the questions right per se.
I feel like at this point, I no longer have any idea whether I did well or not. I came out of the test thinking that things went well... But the longer time drags on, the lower I'm thinking that my score is.
