The Ultimate Guide to SAT® Grammar Workbook, 3rd Edition, includes six full-length tests that reflect the format and content of the multiple-choice Writing section of the redesigned SAT. Thorough explanations cover grammar as well as techniques for identifying correct and incorrect answers, and are designed to reinforce the explanations and strategies discussed in The Ultimate Guide to SAT® Grammar, 3rd Edition.
Test 1, question 5, answer should read:
The previous sentence states that Yunus decided to take matters into his own hands, with “matters” referring to the village woman’s inability to earn a living wage from selling brooms. The sentence in question should thus indicate what Yunus did to help. In addition, the following sentence refers to the tiny loans, so the sentence in question should logically introduce the idea of the loans. Both A and C contain the idea of lending, but only A explains what Yunus did to help the villagers. C focuses on the banks, not on Yunus.
p. 38, Test 2, question 31: “they” should be underlined in the passage (Choice A).
p. 136, Test 6, question 16, answer should read:
D: Pronoun agreement
Logically, the underlined pronoun must refer to the plural noun “the main engines” (what else could fly itself back to Earth?). “Itself” is singular, eliminating A. “Oneself” and “him- or herself” are singular but only refer to people. “Themselves” is plural and correctly refers to things.
p. 101, Test 5, question 14: choice D should read “it did not, however, produce”
