SAT The “2 OUT OF 5″ Rule

Advertisement

It is considerably harder for a good but incorrect answer-choice than it is to produce the correct answer. For this reason, usually only two attractive answer-choices are offered: One correct, the other either intentionally misleading or only partially correct.

The other three answer-choices are usually fluff. This makes educated guess on the SAT very effective. If you remove lint from the three choices, your probability of answering the question successfully will increase from 20% to 50%.
