    I seem to be getting these types of questions wrong a lot on my practice tests, particularly in boths cience sections. I feel like I understand what's going on in the passage, but I can't figure out what to mark as the answer on these questions. I can always narrow it down to 2 choices, and then pick the wrong one. Any tips for answering these types of questions?

    The strategy I used is simply going choice by choice and saying "if this is not true, does the argument still hold up?" For example, if the author is proposing a change in policy, an assumption might be that the old policy was insufficient or something like that.

    Of course you first need to have a good understanding of the argument the author is making.
