Try slowing down. Read the first paragraph and pay special attention the concept it introduces. Try to paraphrase the main idea of paragraph (1) in your head before proceeding to paragraph (2). When you finish (2), do the same thing and then try and think about how (2) relates to (1). Then read (3) repeating the process relating it to (1) and (2). Try to do this all in two or three minutes.
Consider taking a further moment to read the first sentence of (1) and the first and last sentences of the remaining paragraphs. Then proceed to the questions. Be willing to go back to specific parts of the paragraph to answer inference/specific content type questions as needed.
Digest, digest, digest...slowly at first. You're better off taking that approach so that you can breeze through the questions than trying to read quickly, which may end up causing you to get bogged down and confused.
