前几篇文章讲的都是根据一篇文章回答问题,今天我们来看一下如何根据两篇文章回答问题。

SAT的阅读有时会给出两篇文章,也就是一组对比文章,问题是有关这两篇文章的。在两篇文章之前,会给出相关信息。

大家要先阅读信息,再读文章。这些信息会包括文章背景、作者、目的等信息。两篇文章会有所不同,写作意图也不同。

读完这些信息后,再去浏览问题,不要先读文章,因为文章可能会很长。问题的顺序与文章的顺序基本相同,意味着第一篇文章的问题后才是第二篇文章的问题。

但是,在第二篇文章的问题后,会出现一些对比、比较两篇文章的分析和评价性问题。

总的来说,第一篇文章会有一个中心支持观点,而第二篇文章的观点会与之不同。但有时也会遇到两篇主题相似或完全不同的文章。

看到比较性问题,首先要做的就是总结两篇文章大意。例如,你可能会总结出:

Passage 1: Believes that religion is the source of major conflicts in the world

Passage 2: Discusses the benefits of sprituality and religious life

下面,我们就来看一下问题:

1. "How would the author of passage 2 likely respond to the author of passage 1 in his claim that "religion was the source of wars in the 17th century?"

这一类型的问题基于对文章的推断。 在文章中找不到直接的答案。大家应根据第二篇文章坐着的态度选出正确答案。例如,第二篇文章作者的态度是 "pro-religion",可能就会假设作者反对第一篇文章的观点。

2. "Which of the following is a view expressed by both passages?" 

这是SAT考试中比较典型的问题。要求考生比较这两篇文章,并找出共同点。因此大家就要找出两篇文章中作者都同意的观点。这不是推理性问题,因此不要根据自己的理解推断作者的想法,要根据文章得出答案。

3. "Which of the following is a difference between passage one and two?"

这是典型的对比问题,找出两篇文章主要的不同点。这也是从文章中得出答案。
