To give a concrete example, I was preparing for the writing task for the GRE which has an issue and argument essay. I was confused about the difference and other details about the instructions and wanted to get a concrete answer on what the difference is. Is this the right site to ask this or where may I ask something along these lines

Note I am looking a right answer about the writing advice. There might multiple but I'd care for any one single answer. Maybe the simplest one I would request on this hypothetical question.

    This seems more like a question about the GRE than about English. You may get better answers on study sites for the GRE or the GRE site itself

    English Language Learners might also be a good place to ask, since the question would be about learning and being tested on one's English language skills.

  • @ColleenV thanks collen. I've been through that and the GRE books I bought and still need a way to answer my question more directly. Nov 15, 2017 at 16:44
  • Not every question about something written in English is a question about learning English. ELL can help with specific questions about English. If your question fits with what is on-topic on ELL, we will be happy to have it. Historically, questions asking for a fluent speaker to explain a block of text/guess at what it actually means haven't been well received. The Details, Please post on ELL's meta has some advice for writing questions that is worth looking over.

  • @ColleenV what about something like this: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/31465/… does it belong to any site? Nov 16, 2017 at 3:44
  • @ColleenV on the links you've provided for GRE, where do u ask questions for those sites? Nov 16, 2017 at 3:49
  • I don't know of any specifically, but a quick search for "GRE test help forum" turned up this link that looks promising: greprepclub.com/forum
