GRE Verbal Reasoning


The GRE has 3 types of verbal reasoning questions:

  1. Reading comprehension

  2. Text completion

  3. Sentence equivalence

In each of the two verbal sections, you will be assessed on your ability to extract important information from a passage (which can be fiction or non fiction) and determine the connections between groups of words in a sentence or a short passage.

In the Revised GRE test, there are no Antonym questions.
