Transition sentences in ACT, Egyptian Scholastic Test (EST), and Digital SAT

If you’re a high school student preparing for the ACT, Digital SAT, or Egyptian Scholastic Test (EST), there are chances that you’ve heard about transition sentences. But what are they, really? And why are they so important?

What is Transition Sentence?

A transition sentence is a sentence that connects two paragraphs or sections within a larger piece of writing. It serves as a bridge between the ideas presented in the previous paragraph and those that will be presented in the next one. The purpose of a transition sentence is to create coherence and flow in the writing, making it easier for readers to follow the author’s train of thought. Transition sentences are common in ACT, Digital SAT, or Egyptian Scholastic Test (EST).

But don’t worry – transition sentences are your best friend! With a little practice, you’ll be able to use them effectively in your essays. Keep reading to learn more about how to make transition sentences your best friend.

Examples of transition sentences include:

1. “In addition to this point, it is important to consider…”

2. “Furthermore, another factor to take into account is…”

3. “On the other hand, some may argue that…”

4. “In contrast to the previous paragraph, this section will focus on…”

These examples show how transition sentences can signal a shift in focus, introduce new ideas or arguments, or provide contrasting viewpoints. Transition sentences help readers understand how different parts of the text relate to each other and how they contribute to the overall message.

Overall, transition sentences are an essential tool for writers who want to create clear and coherent pieces of writing that are easy for readers to follow and understand. To make sure your transition sentences are effective, practice using them in timed essays and passages. With a little practice, you’ll soon be able to make transition sentences your best friend!

Transition sentences in ACT

Transition sentences in ACT

Nearly you would find a question in every passage about Transition sentence. How you would solve the question in ACT. First, you have to read what is before and after the sentence ( Be careful if there is a transition word in the sentence before you have to read what before the transition word too). Second, focus on the tone of both sentences.

For example:

Type two diabetes is a condition that happens because of a problem in the way the body regulates and uses sugar as a fuel. That sugar also is called glucose. This long-term condition results in too much sugar circulating in the blood. Eventually, high blood sugar levels can lead to disorders of the circulatory, nervous and immune systems.

In type two diabetes, there are primarily two problems. The pancreas does not produce enough insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into the cells. And cells respond poorly to insulin and take in less sugar.

  1. No change
  2. In type two diabetes, there are not any know reasons for it.
  3. Type two diabetes has always been diagnosed wrong.
  4. Type two diabetes is due to the body defects in regulating sugar level in blood.

Let’s apply what we have learned:

When you read what before the underline portion, you will find that the sentence speaks about type two diabetes. The paragraph after speaks about two health issues.

SO the answer is not related to the topic of diagnose as answer (C). The same case in answer (B), it does not mention the reasons. The answer (D) could be little confusing, but it only mentioned what before the underline portion and nothing about what after. The answer here is no change, because it is the only sentence mentioned the two issues and made a clear transition for the idea before.

The question in Egyptian Scholastic Test (EST) depends on connecting both paragraphs together with information fit in the place. The first thing you have to do is to identify the category of the sentence before and the sentence after, then find a sentence that have both categories together.


The history of programming languages spans from documentation of early mechanical computers to modern tools for software development. Early programming languages were highly specialized, relying on mathematical notation and similarly obscure syntax. Throughout the 20th century, research in compiler theory led to the creation of high-level programming languages, which use a more accessible syntax to communicate instructions.

The first high-level programming language was Plankalkül, created by Konrad Zuse between 1942 and 1945. The first high-level language to have an associated compiler was created by Corrado Böhm in 1951, for his PhD thesis. The first commercially available language was FORTRAN (FORmula TRANslation), developed in 1956 (first manual appeared in 1956, but first developed in 1954) by a team led by John Backus at IBM.

  1. No change
  2. The early languages lean on Math
  3. Konrad Ernst Otto Zuse was a German civil engineer, pioneering computer scientist, inventor and businessman
  4. Delete the underline portion

The sentence before speaks about the history of programming language, while the next one speaks about other languages. The rest of the sentence speaks about the inventor of the language, so you have to keep the sentence as it is. Choice B speaks about the importance of math. Choice ( C) speaks about the background of the programmer. You cannot delete the sentence or there will be missing information. ( watch the pattern after)
