Do you get a feeling that GRE Text Completion questions seem complex? Do you have trouble getting answers to problems which you already practiced? Are you able to consider all options presented before deciding on the correct answers? Do you feel confident about using the root words, prefixes, and suffixes to derive the meaning of words you may be unfamiliar with?


You have come to the right place where you will be able to use a Proven 4 Step Formulae to solve the GRE Text Completion questions.

Instead of spending hours and hours on just problem solving, FIRST focus on building rock solid knowledge on the fundamental Method of solving. Every question you continue to practice after this course will stick in your mind because it will just add to the reservoir of knowledge you have already built.


In this GRE Text Completion – Mastery Course, we use the 4 Step Proven Formulae to learn how to identify the Direction Words and the Context Clues in the given question. The list below is an example of direction words normally seen on the GRE Text Completion questions. The Topics are arranged to easily form a mental structure comprising of Topics and Question types for the GRE.

1. Contrast

Contrast sentences contain dissimilar or opposing ideas. Key words indicating contrast sentences include:

  • although
  • but
  • despite
  • however
  • whereas
  • on the contrary
  • yet
  • on the other hand
  • surprisingly
  • unlike
  • in contrast
  • rather

2. Similarity or support

Sentences of this type compare distinct but similar ideas. When choosing a word to fill the blank, you must look for a word that allows the two ideas of the sentence to be similar in meaning.

Key words for similarity sentence completions:

  • likewise
  • in the same way
  • for instance
  • similarly
  • furthermore
  • as
  • same
  • just as
  • specifically
  • such as
  • as an example
  • resembles
  • like
  • also

3. Reiteration or restatement.

Sentences of this type usually have two ideas, one of which clarifies or further supports the other. The ideas will have the same general meaning, but restated in a slightly different or more explanatory way.

Keywords to identify reiteration type problems:

  • in fact
  • in other words
  • to be sure
  • and
  • namely
  • that is
  • furthermore
  • likewise

4. Cause and Effect

Another common sentence structure seen on the GRE is one that contains two ideas, one that causes another.


Keywords that may indicate cause and effect include:

  • because
  • as a result
  • thus
  • resulting from
  • therefore
  • consequently
  • causes
  • leading to
  • due to

Next, we learn how even the most complex sentence can be simplified using the direction words and the Context Clues. This simplified version of the actual sentence makes it much easier to understand the actual question.

Then we learn the art of predicting a word or a phrase in the simplified version of the sentence. This word need not be classy or elegant. It can be any word or a phrase as long as it fits the context.

Finally, we eliminate the options that don’t match the word we have predicted. We have our answer pair that not only fits the blank but also is similar in meaning.
