Reading Comprehension: Initial Reading

Is the sentence in boldface type necessarily a part of the Initial Reading?      

While the Initial Reading may involve reading the last sentence of the first paragraph, it doesn't necessarily always involve it in each and every case.

Sometimes, reading the first two sentences of the first paragraph is enough to understand the main idea of that paragraph. In this case, you can go on to the next paragraph after reading these two sentences.

Do not automatically read all the sentence in the first paragraph just because they're part of the first paragraph. Initial Reading is about minimizing time and effort. Therefore, read the least amount of text, the least number of sentences, that still allow you to grasp the main idea of the passage.

Excellent!

The correct answer is NO.
