The English section of the ACT test is 45 minutes and 75 questions long. It covers the usage and mechanics of English, including grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. Rhetorical skills are also tested, including strategy, organization, and style.

There are 5 passages of prose on the test, each accompanied by multiple choice questions. The questions ask whether the selected parts of the passage should remain as-is or be changed for grammatical, organizational, or stylistic reasons.
