About RC 100

Reading Comprehension (RC) passages constitute an integral part of the Verbal Ability section of most management admission Tests. These passages can be of varying lengths and cover a wide variety of topics in areas such as current affairs, history, literature, sociology, philosophy, anthropology etc. Needless to say you cannot expect to score very well in English section till you are good at RC, which means you have good speed as well as accuracy, as RC questions are more challenging and time consuming.

RC 100 has been created to provide entrance test-takers with sufficient practice so that they get familiar with the different kinds of passages & question types.

All major MBA entrance exams such as the CAT/XAT/IIFT/NMAT/SNAP etc. have been covered in this book, with regard to the types of passages and the types of questions that appear in these examinations.

This book has the following components:

  1. 100 passages across varying levels of difficulty
  2. 400 Specific/Inferential Questions classified as “Must Do”, “Doable” and “Difficult”
  3. Performance Monitor Chart to help you monitor your RC proficiency

How to use the book?

  • The passages in this book have been categorized from Level 1 to Level 5 – with Level 1 being the easiest and Level 5 being the most difficult.

  • The 100 passages have been distributed into 25 sets of four passages each – with each set having specified time-limits. Within a set, the passages are arranged in increasing order of difficulty.

  • You may choose to either attempt 1 passage at a time or a set of 4 passages at a time – but do not attempt passages without time-limits.

  • After the specified time-limits, check your accuracy and score. The Performance Monitor Scorecard given at the each set will help you evaluate your performance with respect to the target score. Your RC proficiency is
    • “Good” if you are able to accurately attempt a majority of the questions classified as “Must Do” or “Doable”
    • “Superior” if you could also solve a majority of the “Difficult” questions accurately.
