How has the reading comp section changed over time?

Aside from the dual passages, has the section changed in any other ways (difficulty etc..)

Talking with a few other instructors at our last meeting, I think the consensus we came up with was that, over the past few administrations, the passages became slightly more straight-forward/easier to comprehend, while the questions became more difficult. Which I like, as some of the more difficult passages were giving an advantage to people with a background in those areas. I know people who majored in a science definitely had an easier time getting through the science passages.

Okay cool then that is good for me as I value easier passages over easier questions. Easy questions are useless if your comprehension of the passage is lacking.
