Reading Comprehension: Detail Questions

To which Reading comprehension question type does the following question stem belong?

"According to the passage, ...."

Main Idea questions usually include a word that stresses the fact that they're about the main idea of the entire passage, such as primarily, chiefly or main.

Correct!

Detail Function questions usually include a word (or several words) that stresses the fact that the question is not about the detail itself but rather about the function it fulfills in the passage. For example, the author uses [detail] toshow that...

Inference questions ask about something that's implied by the passage rather than stated in it. An example of an Inference question is, "The passage implies/suggests that..." or, "It can be inferred from the passage that..."
