The test-taker has to choose the correct answer from the given options. There are three formats in which the given scientific information can be presented. These three formats are as follows:

  1. Data Representation: This information can be in the form of tables, graphs or any other diagrammatic/graphic form.
  2. Research Summaries: This form of information consists of experiments and their descriptions.
  3. Conflicting Viewpoints: This form of information will consist of several hypotheses which may be interrelated but inconsistent with each other.

You are not permitted to use calculators in the ACT Science test. The ACT Science section is based on testing your reasoning skills.
