Reading Comprehension: Work Order

In Reading Comprehension questions, why is it important to diagnose the question type after reading the question stem?

Excellent!

The first reason why it is important to diagnose the question type after reading the question stem is in order to determine our next step: If the question is general, we do not need to go back to the passage as the question is general and we already read the necessary information in the Initial Reading. If the question is specific, we'll go back to the passage, looking for the answer to the question there.

The second reason why it is important to diagnose the question type after reading the question stem is in order to know whether the answer to the question is stated or implied in the passage.

While this is indeed one reason why it's important to diagnose the question type after reading the question, it is not the only reason. The other reason is in order to know whether the answer to the question is stated or implied in the passage.

Therefore, the correct answer is both of the above
