Comprehension Questions, Restating Information and Ideas. O ne of the ways the GED exam tests whether you understand. information and ideas is by testing whether you can recognize. restated information and ideas Restated information is the. same information put in different words This is also known as. paraphrasing It means saying something in a new way using new. words The GED exam will show you a paragraph of text and then. let you choose which answer contains the same information in. different words If you can recognize the information even though. it s in different words then you understood what was said. Here s an example of a sentence you might see on the GED. social studies test, Antonio Pigafetta an Italian sailor with Magellan in.
the 1500s was one of the first people to notice the. International Date Line, Here is the same idea restated in new words. One of the first people who paid attention to the, International Date Line was an Italian who sailed with. Magellan in the 1500s named Antonio Pigafetta, Notice that the restated sentence isn t shorter It s just using. different words Here s a practice question for this skill. 2008 by The GED Academy You are licensed one copy of this document for personal use only Any other. reproduction or redistribution is prohibited All rights reserved w w w p a s s G E D c o m.

T his question is about recognizing restated information from. the paragraph Answer 1 uses a lot of the same words as are. in the paragraph The paragraph says Hitler thought the war with. Soviet Russia would end in six months or less and the first answer. says The war with Soviet Russia ended in six months You need. to pay close attention to the meaning of the words to see that these. two sentences are saying something different The first sentence just. says what Hitler thought would happen and the second sentence. says it did happen Reading the whole paragraph it becomes clear. that Hitler was wrong, The second answer also uses words similar to those in the.
paragraph It says that more than 27 million Russian soldiers lost. their lives Pay careful attention The reading says that between 20. and 27 million Russians died but that includes civilians as well as. soldiers It doesn t say that 27 million Russian soldiers died.

Finding a Fact, F inding a fact is similar to recognizing a restated idea but the.
information is not necessarily given in different words The. question will ask about something in the reading and you ll need. to find the correct fact in the reading A helpful skill in finding a. fact is skimming the reading quickly to locate information You. can develop this skill through practice Remember reading the. question first will help you out Once you read the question you ll. know what you re looking for in the reading, Here s an example of finding a fact.
