Welcome to Academic IELTS Help Forums Student Support Critical Thinkin : "Why" question Reply To: Critical Thinkin : "Why" question


Hi again,
I’m still not clear on composing the right question in critical thinking.
In a lesson video “IELTS Reading – Academic – Key Strategy and Practice Part 2” on aehelp’s youtube account, there’s an example about Critical Thinking which used the first paragraph of “Mountains of Ice” passage.
In that example, the “how” question for the paragraph is “How does this happen?”.
I compared it to other examples from aehelp and I found various form of the “how” question.

Why don’t we make the “how” question for the 1st paragraph of “Mountains of Ice” become like this: “how does the author explain the paragraph” or “how is this idea presented in this paragraph?”

How to make sure that I make the correct “how” question?
