I don't know if I am wording this confusingly, but wouldn't it make the most sense? The answers are all there for you - but its just a matter of finding them, and making note of key details and structure. I feel as though these answers can be answered most confidently, in comparison to an LR sect.

Just wondering because everyone -(well a lot of us) seems to accept RC as their worst section (including myself), but I'm really beginning to question why!

Dude, the LSAT is a logic test. All the answers are in the stimulus/game/passage, not just RC.

No, because not everyone has the same level of English comprehension skills and ability to properly process and understand fairly dense material designed to test higher level reading skills. There is a reason the section type is called reading comprehension instead of 'reading skillz- find matching sentences and phrases'

That latter sentence made me laugh.

Wouldn't it be great if the RC section were five minutes longer? I know I'd be -0/-1 at that point. But it's not. And so time management is such a major concern on RC, which makes it tough. This applies to all sections of the test to most people to varying degrees, granted.
