Omitting in Critical Reading

<p>Are there any strategies to this? For questions that I'm not 100% sure, I can usually eliminate 3 out of the 5 answer choices, and after that I make a guess. More times than not, I'd guess wrong. I want to omit the question, but there's also a 50% chance of gaining a point. Does anyone have any sort of solution to this dilemma?</p>

<p>Guess</p>

<p>or if you always guess the wrong one, fill in the one you think is wrong ;)</p>

<p>Yes, you have to guess. Statistically, you only have to get one right out of every four guesses to come out ahead. And if you've narrowed it down to two, you're absolutely better off guessing. Just do it, and don't second guess yourself :)</p>

<p>In other words, leaving on blank is like is like losing points for getting 4 questions wrong. You're much better off answering each and every question.</p>

<p>Not really. If you get four questions wrong, you "lose" a total of two points if you include what you could have gotten had the question been answered correctly. If you skip one question, you lose one point.</p>
