Reading Comprehension: Work Order

Is the following statement TRUE or FALSE?

In Reading Comprehension, after reading the question stem, understanding what we're being asked and identifying the question type, we have to go back to the passage in order to find the answer to the question.

Incorrect.

This statement is FALSE. If the question is general (e.g., What is the main idea of the passage?), we do not need to go back to the passage. We have already read the sentences that contain the answer in the InitialReading.

We need to go back to the passage in order to find the answer to the question only if the question is specific (e.g., In which year did this and this happen?).
