help with reviewing a PSAT question?

Modern researchers have invented ways to peer into the Earth just as if they were digging into it or slicing the planet in two. They have devised methods of mimicking the Earth's extremes of pressure and temperature. Using powerful precision vises and controlled explosions, they can now re-create the conditions of the Earth's interior in their laboratories.

"Controlled" most nearly means regulated or conducted?
"Regulated" is correct, although explosions, part of the re-created conditions, are conducted through experiments... Why is regulated better?

I can usually eliminate the choices down to 2, but does anyone have any general advice for discerning between subtle differences when defining words?

Well, in that instance, "control" can mean either a "experiment setup where the variable is removed" or "regulated." Since that's a reading passage, and the PSAT never, EVER requires knowledge outside of the subject (in this case English), "regulated" is correct. Knowing the other definition would require scientific knowledge not given in the passage, so that one is wrong.

Other tips and tricks:
-Rely on your instincts. When you think of "control," you would usually skip right to "regulated," right?

-Look at the passage. "Controlled explosions?" Let's see: Does "conducted explosions" make sense in the context? Or would "regulated explosions" make more sense.

-Always remember: On standardized tests, you will never be required to know things that do not relate to English, math, or whatever else they're testing you on. If they do, then they'll give it to you.
