Some students like the questions that are easier and faster to answer.Those will start with expressions like:

“List five reasons . . .?”

“What events led up to. . .?”

You can answer these questions first and then go for more time-consuming questions that require more thought and concentration.After answering each question, you will need to quote the book when appropriate to back up your thoughts.Remember carefully only quote three to five words at a time. Otherwise, you will fall into the trap of copying answers from the book and you’ll lose points for that.
