Rhetoric is the art of making a point in words, spoken or
written. On the ACT, this means your ability to choose and organize
words, phrases and sentences into paragraphs that clearly and effectively
convey a message.
Just as for the Usage/Mechanics questions, the ACT tests your
abilities in rhetoric by giving you a series of examples. Each question
asks you how to rearrange or augment a sample passage to improve its
rhetorical effectiveness. Our free tutorial can help you out with strategy
tips and personalized practice sessions.
