Blue book page 975. In the passage about Trabb’s boy, I was not able to fully comprehend the details of the passage but was still surprisingly able to answer all the questions correctly. Is this normal or should I work towards increasing my comprehension?

It’s not uncommon for the toughest passages to have slightly more straightforward questions. If Trabb’s boy is the only passage you’ve ever failed to fully comprehend, then you shouldn’t worry too much—it’s pretty unlikely that nothing like that will appear on your SAT.

That said, I’m of the belief that you should always be working on your comprehension. There is no skill more important than reading comprehension. If your comprehension is not up to snuff, it will eventually limit you in pretty much any academic discipline or career you choose.
