Let's talk about visuals in learning. You don't have to scan through dozens of research papers to conclude that the human brain processes images faster than words. But it's good to know MIT neuro-scientists say human brain can process an image in 13 milliseconds. At the same time Cambridge neuro-scientists say we can recognize a word in 200 milliseconds. So our brains are more engaged in visuals.
It's the reason why The Learning Board tuition centre utilizes graphs, charts, maps and diagrams during class. This series of photos can guide you through 12 common grammar questions in examinations. The thinking process is more important than the answers themselves. So take time to learn about each question type and the thinking process to find solutions.
Did you notice something wrong after going through the images? If not, look at the second question again (starting with "Yesterday..."). The suggested answer is A. However, the adverb "yesterday" tells us that this sentence should be in past tense. Hence, the correct answer is C.
Exam papers often contain tricky questions. Avoid careless mistakes by considering other options of an MCQ and reviewing your answers one by one. Likewise, during class, practice critical thinking by questioning the answers given to you and clarify your doubts with your tutor.
The photo below contains the full explanation and correct answer for question number 2.
