I don't have experience with the ACT -- but I think I know what kind of questions these are. The test asks you what is wrong with the underlined parts.
If you copy a few of the questions you didn't know, we'll be glad to steer you toward some good resources.
Often these questions have to do with pronoun/antecedent agreement, subject/verb agreement, and wrong verb forms.
Here is one that I missed:
For some people, traditional American Indian music is assoicated and connected with high penetrating vocals accompanied by a steady drumbeat.
A. NO CHANGE
B. connected by some of them
C. linked by association
They said the answer was D
I put A
Ah -- that's a misspelled word.
If you read each word carefully, you'd probably realized that the word couldn't be spelled that way.
Sorry the underlined part was "assoicated and connected"
Oh sorry, I was careless and missed spelled it when I was typing it.
For some people, traditional American Indian music is associated and connected with high penetrating vocals accompanied by a steady drumbeat.
associated and connected are redundant... so is linked by association. All that is needed is D.
Ah, so if two words that mean the same thing are next to each other, only one is needed?
So either associated or connected could be taken out if that was an answer choice?
Ahh, I see. I'm kind of stressed over this test. I have to find a way to apply all of these "rules" when I'm taking this test.
There are lots of places onliine where you can take practices tests -- or parts of them. Here's one:
