The best long-term plan to deal with long passages is to maintain your attention and focus. It can be only developed with good practice. 

  1. Concentrate on the opening and closing paragraphs
    Most of the passages will be short, but one or two might be long. In case there is a shortage of time, read the opening and closing paragraphs. This is because the first and the last paragraphs contain the passage's main idea. 
  2. Use context
    If there is a question based on a particular line, read at least two to three sentences before and after the line, to comprehend/understand what it is trying to convey. This will help you write the answer with better accuracy. 
  3. Improve your Vocabulary
    Try increasing your vocabulary. It is extremely vital to build on your core language skills in order to develop into an affluent reader. Keep reading editorials and make a note of new words. Try to use them in your conversations.
