SAT Writing/Language question: Choose the answer that best fits the sentence grammatically. The height of the tree was larger (than the building.) A) NO CHANGE B) than that of the building's. C) than the building's. D) than those of the building.
The correct answer is B. This is because the sentence as it is right now compares the height of the tree to "the building" instead of the height of the building. Changing it to "than that of the building's" ensures that the height of the tree is being correctly compared to the building's height, while using the correct pronoun of "that" since it is a singular noun.
Subject: College Admissions
Should I be participating in every single extracurricular I can find?
No, not necessarily. College admissions officers and colleges look for students that are passionate for academics and whatever field they would like to pursue. And while they still want well rounded students, partaking in every extracurricular that you come across is not in your best interest. They want to see that you readily are taking leadership and interest in your extracurricular activities. And trust me, it is not hard to tell when a student is just doing an activity so they can enter it into another slot on their application. Just do the activities you actually enjoy and feign interest in, and that will be enough!
What is the ACT Science section like and how should I prepare for it?
The ACT science section can seem daunting at first, but really it is not too different from what you're already familiar with. You do not need any prior science knowledge to successfully complete the science section. The section can be most closely be compared to the ACT reading section, since similar skills such as analysis and synthesis are needed for both. However, in the science section you will need to focus your studying on being able to correctly analyze and predict based off of data presented in a variety of forms, most commonly graphs and tables. Preparing for this section just comes with becoming familiar with the types of passages the test will throw at you. Do many practice sections and even complete ACT/SAT reading sections for more practice on analysis (plus most reading sections have one science passage that is similar to that of the ACT science section passages). Time is of the essence when completing this section, and when you study, you will want to practice finishing the test within less than the given time; this will ensure that you are adequately prepared to complete the real thing. Good luck!
