- [Voiceover] It pays off to work on ACT science questions…step-by-step since there's so much information involved…in experiments.…This video I'll go over a sample question to show you…one way to work through it.…So here we have a question about a graph asking…about the salinity of a sample…and what its freezing point would be.…So the first thing you probably wanna do…when you see a question is think about what specifically…in the question gives you an indication…to go somewhere within the experiment?…Here it's pretty easy because we know it's pointing…us directly to the only graph on the page,…but often when you see a science question…there can be all kinds of information,…maybe spread out over two pages.…
You'll have to really determine where to look.…So the next thing I would suggest you do…is that you underline or circle the relevant information…in the question and then locate the relevant place to look…on the graph.…So notice the question is asking about mL/L.…I might make a little note there,…and then I'm gonna make a note…
