So we have all been there. We come across a question on the ARE, and we immediately have 10 other questions we need to know to answer it. In a work setting, we would ask someone. But we can't do that here. I get caught up on these questions the most (this is something I've been terrible at my whole life, not just the ARE.) Questions where all the answers seem equally right, and it just depends on what issue they prioritize based on the minimal information given. Questions where none of the answer seem correct based on the minimal information given. Questions where we are not 100% sure what they are asking us to answer.
I know there is no perfect answer for this, but I'm just wondering what sort of tactics and methods you use to solve these. Are there particular hints you look for in the phrasing of the question? What do you do when you aren't exactly sure what the question is asking? How to dissect a question that is confusing? My tactic so far has been to just pick an answer I think is correct, and hope that is what they wanted. But judging by my passing rate, it's not a good tactic. Is there a better way to go about this?
