## What is ‘Sequential Order of Words’?

This sort of question gives you a bunch of words and asks you to rearrange them in a coherent and logical sequence, as the name implies. It may appear simple, but the questions might be difficult to answer at times. So let’s talk about different types of sequences and how to deal with them effectively.

## Tricks & Strategy for ‘Logical Sequence of Words’

### The order in which steps of a process or a sequence of events occur

In these types of questions, the provided combination of words denotes the phases of development of a process or a sequence of events that culminated in a noteworthy event. You must determine the sequence in which the steps of the process are completed from beginning to end. For example, the events leading up to a conflict, the stages of production, and so on.

### Increasing or reducing value/size/intensity in a certain order

These kinds of sequences are simple to put together all at once. You must arrange the set of words in ascending or descending order. Age, size, value, area, intensity, cost, and other factors may be considered.

### Arranging based on the dictionary

In this sort of sequence, you must arrange the words in the dictionary’s specified order. To put it another way, you must sequence them alphabetically.

### From ‘part’ to ‘whole,’ the order of objects/things

The provided words in this sort of sequence pertain to a certain group or class of items. You must organise things in such a way that the vital portion of something is seen to the total.

### Sequential order of things question asked in bank exams

The sequential order of things for Bank Preparation In this type of question, some clues are given regarding the occurrence of the events done by objects. We have to scrutinize the clues to frame the proper sequence of events. After that, based on this sequence, we will give answers to the given questions.

## Another common type of question is seating arrangement type

In a movie theatre, nine people (Anaya, Bali, Charlie, Danish, Emily, Faiz, Gargi, Hannah and Ira) sit in a row facing north to see a film. Bali is located at the far end of the row. Both Faiz and Gargi are seated next to Hannah. Charlie is directly to the right of Danish, and third to the right of Emily. Anaya is positioned just to the left of Faiz. The third position to the left of Bali is occupied by Faiz.

### Q1. Who is the person in the middle of the row?

1. Bali
2. Anaya
3. Faiz
4. Hannah

Sol: We need to line up 9 persons in a row here. We’ll start by filling in the direct data. It is assumed that Bali is at one of the row’s ends. As a result, Bali might be at any end of the row. As a result, we have two possibilities:

 * * * * * * * * Bali

OR

 Bali * * * * * * * *

Faiz is third to the left of Bali on the last line; hence the first placement will be rejected since there is no area to the left of Bali. Now, in the second arrangement, set the location of Faiz; we obtain:

 * * * * * Faiz * * Bali

There’s more information on Anaya’s position in relation to Faiz this time. Faiz is directly to the left of Anaya. As a result, if we put Anaya in his place, the order will be:

 * * * * Anaya Faiz * * Bali

Simply keep seeking for information that will connect the remaining people to those who have already been sorted. It is assumed that Hannah will be seated next to both Faiz and Gargi. So, Hannah is in the middle of Faiz and Gargi. So, there you have it:

 * * * * Anaya Faiz Hannah Gargi Bali

Charlie is now in third place, to Emily’s right. So there’s only one way Emily might be at the opposite end of the spectrum. So now we have a plan in place:

 Emily * * Charlie Anaya Faiz Hannah Gargi Bali

Charlie is now on Danish’s immediate right.

So, here we have the final arrangement:

 Emily Ira Danish Charlie Anaya Faiz Hannah Gargi Bali

As a result, Anaya is seated in the middle of the row. Therefore, option 2 is the correct answer.

## Conclusion

We can conclude by saying that now you might have got the tricks and tips to improve your skills in solving sequential order questions. Moreover, we have solved quite a few examples and clarified the concept, so now you can solve reasoning questions with ease.
