There are now two types of reading passage questions on the SAT.
Long reading passage questions will require you to read a piece of text between three and six paragraphs long, followed by several questions on what you've just read.
The second type of reading passage is a short reading passage question that will ask you to read a one or two paragraph (100 word) passage and answer related questions.
The questions will relate to the content of the passage, discerning its main points and significant details.
You will also be asked to make inferences based on the information given in the passage.
You might also be asked to describe the author's opinions.
In this section, you're being tested on your ability to synthesize and integrate the ideas presented in the passage.
