Question of the Day: GED Language Arts (RLA)

1 I am a rather elderly man. 2 The nature of my avocations for the last thirty years has brought me into more than ordinary contact with what would seem an interesting and somewhat singular set of men, of whom as yet nothing that I know of has ever been written:—I mean the law-copyists or scriveners. 3 I have known very many of them, professionally and privately, and if I pleased, could relate divers histories, at which good-natured gentlemen might smile, and sentimental souls might weep. 

4 … I am a man who, from his youth upwards, has been filled with a profound conviction that the easiest way of life is the best. 5 Hence, though I belong to a profession proverbially energetic and nervous, even to turbulence, at times, yet nothing of that sort have I ever suffered to invade my peace. 6 I am one of those unambitious lawyers who never addresses a jury, or in any way draws down public applause; but in the cool tranquility of a snug retreat, do a snug business among rich men's bonds and mortgages and title-deeds. 7 All who know me, consider me an eminently safe man. 8 The late John Jacob Astor, a personage little given to poetic enthusiasm, had no hesitation in pronouncing my first grand point to be prudence; my next, method. 9 I do not speak it in vanity, but simply record the fact, that I was not unemployed in my profession by the late John Jacob Astor; a name which, I admit, I love to repeat, for it hath a rounded and orbicular sound to it, and rings like unto bullion. 10 I will freely add, that I was not insensible to the late John Jacob Astor's good opinion.

11 Some time prior to the period at which this little history begins, my avocations had been largely increased. 12 The good old office, now extinct in the State of New York, of a Master in Chancery, had been conferred upon me. It was not a very arduous office, but very pleasantly remunerative.

How would the speaker characterize his own profession?

Calamitous

Wrathful

Obsequious

Doleful

Excitable

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.

The GED is a way to show your career and college readiness, and proper test review is imperative. You can use the free Question of the Day to help fit test preparation into your busy schedule.
