WST Practice Exam: 45 Minutes—75 Questions

In the five passages that follow, certain words and phrases are underlined and numbered. In the right–hand screen, you will find alternatives for each underlined part. You are to choose the one that best expresses the idea, makes the statement appropriate for standard written English, or is worded most consistently with the style and tone of the passage as a whole. If you think the original is best, choose “NO CHANGE.”

You will also find questions about a section of the passage, or about the passage as a whole. These questions do not refer to an underlined portion of the passage, but rather are idendified by a number or numbers in a box.

For each question, choose the alternative you consider best and click the corresponding button. Read each passage through once before you begin to answer the questions that accompany it. You cannot determine most questions without reading several sentences beyond the question. Be sure that you have read far enough ahead each time you choose an alternative.
