Sure, I'd be happy to help with that! **7a. One aspect that both skimming and scanning have in common:** Both skimming and scanning are techniques used to quickly find information in a text without reading it in full. They are both used to efficiently extract information from a document. **7b. One difference between the strategies:** - **Skimming**: This strategy involves quickly looking over the text to get a general idea of the content. The reader focuses on headings, subheadings, and the first and last sentences of paragraphs to understand the main themes or the overall gist. - **Scanning**: This strategy involves looking for specific information or details within a text, such as keywords, dates, names, or specific phrases. Here, the reader doesn't focus on the whole text but instead searches for particular points of interest. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any more questions.
