Reading Comprehension: Initial Reading

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

Good!

The correct answer is yes. Initial Reading involves reading the first few sentences of the first paragraph and the first sentence of each of the remaining paragraphs. Since the boldface type sentence is the first sentence of the last paragraph, it is an integral necessary part of the Initial Reading. Reading it will inform you what the last paragraph is mainly about and how this paragraph relates to both the previous paragraph and the main idea of the passage.
