I’ve done my best here to be faithful to the structure of an SAT section 10, although I’ve obviously been a bit loose with the subject matter. Since this is designed to mirror a section 10, though, you should time yourself on it. You’ll get 10 minutes to complete the last writing section on the real test, so you should give yourself 10 minutes to do this one.

Once you’re done, click the link to the answer key, which also contains brief explanations of why the wrong answers are wrong. If you’d like more of an explanation than is provided there, obviously feel free to leave a comment right here on this post.
