Question of the Day: GED Language Arts (RLA)
Adapted from The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling (1894)
The Law of the Jungle lays down very clearly that any wolf may, when he marries, withdraw from the Pack he belongs to. But as soon as his cubs are old enough to stand on their feet he must bring them to the Pack Council, which is generally held once a month at full moon, in order that the other wolves may identify them. After that inspection the cubs are free to run where they please, and until they have killed their first buck no excuse is accepted if a grown wolf of the Pack kills one of them. The punishment is death where the murderer can be found; and if you think for a minute you will see that this must be so.
What is the author implying in the last sentence?
that punishment is inescapable
that murder is common in the Jungle
that it is common for the wolves to cheat punishment
that members of the Jungle speculate about the punishment laws
that new punishment laws are needed
The GED Reasoning through Language Arts (RLA) Question of the Day is a great way to brush up on your skills prior to taking the GED. Question of the Day is a daily test practice, which encompasses only one question each day for the RLA topic. The question can be emailed to you, or you can access it through the website or the application. It is a great way you can work in daily test review with only a small amount of time, as it can be done anywhere and at any time, as long as you have an internet connection. This makes test review possible while riding the bus, waiting in line at the store or coffee shop, or while getting your oil changed.
Question of the Day for GED RLA is based on a wide variety of commonly asked questions or questions you may see on the language arts portion of the exam on test day. The questions may cover anything from evidence and argument or language usage and grammar, to reading comprehension. The questions are a random selection, so you will be able to cover all the areas, and keep them fresh in your mind.
After answering the question, you get a detailed and personalized report on your performance as a whole for all questions answered. This report details the number of correct and incorrect questions you have answered, how others who have answered the questions have done, and the amount of time it took you to answer each question. The results are shown in graph form, which is great to be able to picture where you are with your studying and where you need to improve. There is also an explanation of how to answer the question, so you will know if your reasoning for your answer was correct.
This detailed report also will help you to determine what areas are your strengths and which areas you need to strengthen. This will help you to streamline your test review so you can focus more on the areas that you need, rather than on all the possible content, which makes test review more manageable. So if your weaknesses are in passage meaning or inference, you can focus more on that than say, usage and grammar. However, Question of the Day still keeps the areas you are stronger in fresh in your mind for the exam day.
You can combine Question of the Day with the other free practice Learning Tools, such as Practice Tests, Flashcards, and Learn by Concept, to create a full spectrum test review that is completely customizable to your learning needs. Also, because of the number of different test review Learning Tools, you can use it to work with your study and learning style.
