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.
