The question is intended to be challenging, and in all likelihood, the context will be minimally familiar or completely unfamiliar. Relax. No matter how new or foreign it may appear, everything you need to answer the question is given. Map, don't memorize In Reading Comprehension, you do not need to memorize every detail of a passage: your goal on the first reading is to extract the main idea and the topic of each paragraph: this gives you a "map", and when you get to a detail question, you will follow your "map" back to the relevant section. That is very much what you will do with MSR question. You don't need to memorize: you do need to figure out (a) where the pieces of information are located, and (b) how information given on one card influences or plays into information given on the other cards. Be careful to distinguish what must be true from what could be true. Make sure you verify the answer to each question with concrete information on the cards.
