" 'Because the American Indian rodeo includes games and exhibitions developed as early as the seventeenth century'...'as early as' is an idiom, and this looks ok. 'they predate'...what does 'they' refer to? 'rodeo,' which is singular. This is a pronoun number agreement error - it should be 'it predates.' The question is tricking me by making me think 'they' refers to 'Games and exhibitions.' My tentative answer is B, but let's read on...they predate by a few hundred years...'predate by' is the correct idiom. 'they predate by a few hundred years the form of rodeo now seen on television'...'[noun] predates [noun]' is the correct construction. Therefore answer B is the answer as it has an obvious error."
The best way to decide if the SAT or ACT is right for you is to take a timed full-length practice test in each. Since the content and style of the SAT and ACT are very similar, factors like how you handle time pressure and what types of questions you find most challenging can help you determine which test is a better fit. For example, the pace of the SAT gives you a tad more time to think through problems, while the ACT can be more of a time crunch. Some students really thrive under the pressure of the clock, while others prefer the extra time to ponder a question. Try our QUIZ: SAT, ACT, or Both? to learn more.
This was great! You’re right, there are sooooo many ways to be persuasive. One thing that I do (when it fits) is to take a subject or idea that I’m attempting to share and dramatize it. Exaggerate it. It helps to get a point across. For example, a friend of mine just wrote a great radio ad for a business that wanted to let everyone know of ALL their many services. Which is no easy feat if you’re trying to stay away from being boring. So, he wrote an ad for the business as if you were ordering their services at a drive-thru fast food joint. This particular concept also would fit into your “Comparison” tip.
