This question requires more information for a specific response. What grade level? What reading level? What is the purpose of reading a passage rather than a complete text?

My suggestion is to look in the Literacy Continuum for the goals and expectations for the level and see if the passage meets the goals you are teaching, supporting, or reinforcing. More often a complete text allows more opportunities than a passage for meeting the goals and expectations in meaningful ways, with deeper understanding.

Best wishes for success!
