Question of the Day: GED Language Arts (RLA)

From Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare, III.ii.13-33 (1599)

[This is a speech by Brutus to a crowd at Caesar’s funeral.]  


Romans, countrymen, and lovers! Hear me for my

cause, and be silent, that you may hear. Believe me

for mine honor, and have respect to mine honor, that

you may believe. Censure me in your wisdom, and

awake your senses, that you may the better judge.

If there be any in this assembly, any dear friend of

Caesar's, to him I say that Brutus' love to Caesar

was no less than his. If then that friend demand

why Brutus rose against Caesar, this is my answer:

Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved

Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and

die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead to live

all free men? As Caesar loved me, I weep for him;

as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was

valiant, I honor him; but as he was ambitious, I

slew him. There is tears for his love, joy for his

fortune, honor for his valor, and death for his

ambition. Who is here so base that would be a

bondman? If any, speak, for him have I offended.

Who is here so rude that would not be a Roman? If

any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so

vile that will not love his country? If any, speak,

for him have I offended. I pause for a reply.

By what grammatical device does Brutus construct the parallelism found in the underlined sentences?

By using short, punctuated sentences

By only speaking with forceful language

By using the imperative mood, following each order with an explanation

By addressing the crowd in a frank, honest manner

By increasingly appealing to emotions through rhetorical devices

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.
