In order to identify Fact Questions, What are the main words that TOEFL use to introduce those questions?

Great Question Pablo! Here are some of the common "leading phrases" that introduce a FACT question:
"According to . . . "
"In paragraph 2 . . . "
"In the passage . . ."

Sometimes these leading phrases are dropped and the FACT question just begins with its inquiry. For example:
"What problem does Freud find with Jung's theory of the collective unconscious?"

And sometimes, a FACT question begins with a statement that you then have to finish. For example:
"Some of the biggest circuses in the early 20th century were . . ."

I hope this helps. Take one of your TOEFL books and try to identify the fact questions now. If you have trouble with one of them, post it here and we can tell you if it is a fact question or not!

GOOD LUCK!

You may determine key words in the question, search for these key words or synonyms in the passage and you may find the answer near from those words.

It's better to use your notes from the vocabulary questions to answer fact questions.
