On the SAT Reading Test (and other passage-based exams/tests), there are questions that refer back to previous questions, and they ask you to “find the evidence” as to why you chose the answer to that question it refers to.

For example:

How was Bob most likely feeling when Dud told him …?

A) …

B) …

C) …

D) …


What lines in the text show evidence to why you chose the answer to the previous question?

A) Lines … to …

B) Lines … to …

C) Lines … to …

D) Lines … to …

Does the correct answer to the second question depend on the answer you chose for the first one? So, is it possible to get the first question wrong, but the second question correct?


Reopen question: This is generalizable to graduate students. The SAT is only an example, and there are many such tests/exams that non-undergraduate students may take. Undergraduate questions
