Rule of thumb,  trust yourself.  If you have taken our course, we study grammar rules and learn to recognize style errors so you have your A game on.  By the time students take the ACT, they should have a good idea of what is and isn’t correct.  If a sentence doesn’t  “sound right” you are probably right that something is wrong with the sentence.  Don’t worry about the why just be able to identify the best choice.
