Few Examples Of Comparison Type Questions

Competitive exams offer limited time. As a result, it's critical that you've practised as many different types of questions as you can beforehand. Comparison type questions are one component of the reasoning skill that demands a lot of study and practice.

You must organise or place individuals based on their ranks in such problems. You may also have to locate the position using the information provided in the question. For example, where does this individual sit, what floor does he reside on, and so on. Using concepts and a few tricks, you can quickly answer these questions. This will elevate your morale and, more significantly, allow you more time to answer questions. Because time is limited, it is critical to have mastered these approaches. And that is the reason we have decided to provide the students with a thorough review of the topic by providing some examples of comparison type questions. You’ll know if you’ve grasped this topic properly by tackling these questions. This way, solving some comparison examples will make the concepts clearer.

Conclusion

One of the essential parts that will be asked in competitive exams and placements is comparison. One should practise many sorts of sums to prepare for this part. And while solving, there are two points one should keep in mind. First, in terms of the row and rank, the person’s position might be from either side. It might be from left to right or right to left, and it can be from top to bottom or bottom to top. And second, one should try to read the question line by line before one solves it. After that, you’ll be able to tackle problems on a case-by-case basis. Additionally, one should note that studying theoretically will not suffice. One should consider taking a look at examples of comparison type questions and various types of comparison questions and answers in order to gain confidence and command over the topic.
