To improve my logical deduction and reasoning skills, I'm reading particularly longer passages, questions for which I then answer like https://ell.stackexchange.com/q/33352/8712. While lengthier passages do help, the downside is their unreadability and incommodity. Unfortunately, because I struggle with the passage itself, I don't know what to omit, and so shouldn't.
Yet are there any advice or tips on how to better or simplify these kinds of questions? Do I need to post the passage itself? Can I just link to it, in the interest of brevity? I do apologise for their length.
