Does anyone know if reading comp questions are likely to test knowledge of nouns, adjectives, metaphors etc? A lot of the test papers you can buy have a significant no. of questions such as 'Which word in line 12 is the adverb?' or 'The quote '......'(line 16) is an example of a simile, personification etc.' Or is it more likely to be contextual ques?
Feeling overwhelmed!!

It can be both but I do not know about your area. Comprehension means understanding of the passage which also means appreciating the structure and language.

These things are now all part of SPAG which is part of Sats so your student will have been taught it. DG
