Quick question regarding LR. The questions I tend to get wrong come down to 2 maybe 3 contenders and when put in a situation like that im having a hard time deciding the correct choice. Is their any advice anyone can give me on how to approach the answers when only a couple remain? Ive tried re-reading the stimulus or prephrasing again but it still doesnt help me for some reason. Any advice is MUCH appreciated. Thanks alot.

Hard to tell without specific examples. On certain question types, you can look for overly strong language or extraneous information that makes an answer incorrect. The difference between TCR and a wrong answer can be subtle, but there is always one right answer and four wrong answers.

I agree with the above posters. When down to 2 or 3, stop looking for reasons why one is more right. Instead, focusing on eliminating the ones that are more wrong. Those quantity words (all, most, some, etc...) are often the culprit - the reason why that particular answer choice is wrong.
