We read the paragraph first and answered the questions second. Sometime the question was read before the paragraph, but not answered. It was only meant to give a CLUE as to what would be asked later.
As I recall it, the BEST dubs read the article as soon as it came in the mail (later, picked up at the hall)
Then the week before they read each paragraph, looked at the question, and read the paragraph again in order to underline the answer.
Then on the day of the meeting, it was read outloud again and the question was asked.
Then 3 or 4 people would reread the paragraph in the course of their answers.
Then review questions were asked, and 3 or 4 paragraphs were reread in THOSE answers.
By now each paragraph had been read about 6 times---give or take. I'm rounding.
And the super bestest dubs of all would sometimes say they had to read the article THREE times because it was so deep. So let's add another 3, bringing us to 9.
Sometimes, after studying it on their own, some would then study it with friends or family. Read, answer. Add two. Up to 11 times.
THEN, the next year, the paragraphs are rehashed in the Daily Text. Read once, look at question, Read again. Add two. 13 times.
THEN when someone started struggling, Elders often assigned old articles to read. And another read. 14 times.
Fourteen times. That's how many times a paragraph is read. That's my scientific conclusion.
