‘Comprehension' means 'understanding'. When you learn to read, you first need to recognize words and understand what they mean. You learn to answer 'who', 'what', 'when', 'where', 'how' and 'why' questions. But comprehending what you're reading goes beyond basic questions. 'Why', for example, is not always straightforward. Sometimes an author only gives you hints and clues about what is happening and why characters behave the way they do.
Authors do this to draw you into their story as well as letting you use your imagination. Some of the most gripping stories leave ‘gaps’ where you can deduce what’s happening yourself.
