Question of the Day: ACT English

Adapted from The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

As they entered, they saw Dorian Gray who was seated at the piano his back to them, turning over the pages of a volume of Schumann's "Forest Scenes." "You must lend me these, Basil," he cried. "I want to learn them. They are perfectly charming." "That entirely depends on how you sit to-day, Dorian."

"Oh, I am tired of sitting, and I don't want a life-sized portrait of myself," answered the lad, swinging round on the music-stool in a willful, petulant manner. When he caught sight of Lord Henry, a faint blush colored his cheeks for a moment, and he started up. "I beg your pardon, Basil. I did’nt know you had any one with you."

"This is Lord Henry Wotton, Dorian, an old Oxford friend of mine. I have just been telling him what a capital sitter you were, and now you have spoiled everything."

"You have not spoiled my pleasure in meeting you, Mr. Gray," said Lord Henry, stepping forward and extended his hand. "My aunt has often spoken to me about you. You are one of her favorites, and, I am afraid, one of her victims also."

"I am in Lady Agatha's black books at present," answered Dorian with a funny look of penitence. "I promised to go to a club in Whitechapel with her last Tuesday, and I really forgot all about it. We were to have played a duet together: three duets, I believe. I don't know what she will say to me. I am far too frightened to call."

Choose the answer that best corrects the underlined portion of the passage. If the underlined portion is correct as written, choose "NO CHANGE."

NO CHANGE

played a duet together three duets, I believe

played a duet together—three duets, I believe

played a duet together; three duets, I believe

played a duet together—three duets. I believe

When preparing to take the ACT, it is important to learn how to manage your time in order to be as ready as you can be on test day. Beyond that, each portion of the test provides different challenges for different people, making it vital to prepare accordingly. One of the subjects tested by the ACT is the English comprehension portion, which will test your ability to utilize capitalization, punctuation, and comprehension, among other English topics. Whether you need ACT English tutoring in New York, ACT English tutoring in Chicago, or ACT English tutoring in Los Angeles, working one-on-one with an expert may be just the boost your studies need. Another way to prepare for the ACT English section is to use Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools ACT English Question of the Day.

The Learning Tools English Question of the Day can be a very good way to test your knowledge of the English language and prepare yourself for your upcoming ACT by giving you a single sample question each day. By doing so, this will help to keep your mind sharp on the general concepts of the English language, while at the same time testing you on a specific topic that may be on the ACT.

The Learning Tools ACT English Question of the Day separates itself from other ACT English practice tests by giving you more information than simply the answer to each question on a daily basic. Along with answers, the test will give you specific statistics that will help you see where you may need extra work for your upcoming test. One of the statistics is the percentage of other test takers that answered the question correctly. Another statistic will keep track of your correct versus incorrect answers on your questions each day. A third statistic will measure the time that it takes you to answer a question, and shows your time against other people that have answered the same question. These statistics will, over time, allow you to see how you stack up against others who are also preparing to take the ACT, giving you an idea of where you stand against other prospective test takers, as well as where additional study may be needed. You may also benefit from the help of an ACT English tutor.

Beyond statistics, the Learning Tools English Question of the Day gives you additional study tools for you to continue your preparation once you have answered the question. Along with the answer, you will receive a specific explanation as to why the answer you selected was correct or incorrect. Further, you will also be able to access an area that focuses on the general concept that is similar to the Question of the Day. Within this concept area, you will be able to go over a number of questions that are similar to the one you just answered, giving you additional practice on a concept, complete with the answers already provided. This can be particularly helpful if you don’t feel you understand a specific concept for your upcoming test, while at the same time giving you questions of varying difficulty on a similar topic to prepare best for the test. In addition to ACT English tutoring, Varsity Tutors offers resources like a free ACT prep book to help you with your self-paced study.
