Logical Reasoning BASED ON TEAM FORMATIONS INTRODUCTION
About Me . I hold a B.E degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering. . CAT, 17. DI & LR-98.29 %ile. I would take you through the Dl & LR lessons for CAT . Not all are born Einstein's but trust me with hard work and dedication we can together make it possible.
Contribution of the topic Total Questions from DI & LR section: 32; All questions were in sets form, wherein each set comprised 4 questions. 16 Questions (i.e., 4 sets) on LR Logical Reasoning (LR) 16 Questions (i.e., 4 sets) on DI Of the 4 sets on LR, 1 set i.e., 4 questions may be based on Team Formations. Hence, we can say 25% of LR may be cleared if we thoroughly prepare this topic. NOTE: This analysis is based on previous year papers.
What is Team Formation? Team formation questions consist typically of a group of people/objects that have to be put together in teams-albeit with a set of constraints/conditions about certain people who need to be put together/ cannot be put together in a team. . A lot of information needs to be comprehended in these problem, and hence, care should be taken to ensure that an appropriate framework which will aid smooth fitting and assimilation of data will be used
Key Skills Involved The key skills involved in solving team formation questions would involve the following (i) The ability to visualise the structure of the teams to be formed including the number of people/objects in each team (ii) The ability to order the clues in the correct order of usage (as explained in the theory of logical reasoning) (ii) The ability to create symbolic representations of the various clues provided so that you can bring together each of the relevant clues while creating the teams (iv) The ability to wait for and reach the appropriate time in the problem solving situation from where the indirect clues provided in the question can be used.
Example: Study the following information carefully and answer the questions given below: Five places are visited by six friends (Anirudh ,Chanakya, Duryodhan, Chaitanya Eshvar, Bali) for their project research. The places are Mathura, Ayodhya, Swarghat ,Gokul and Arki. The friends went in a team of either two or three people. The following is the list of visits carried out: i. Anirudh and Chanakya visited Mathura and Ayodhya i. Duryodhan and Anirudh visited Ayodhya and Swarghat ii. Chaitanya and Bali visited Gokul and Mathura iv. Duryodhan,Eshvar and Bali visited Swarghat and Gokul v. Eshvar and Duryodhan visited Swarghat and Arki
Solution: Mathura Ayodhya Swarghat Gokul Arki Anirudh Chanakya Duryodharn Chaitanya Eshvar Bali Mathura Ayodhya Swarghat Gokul Arki Anirudh ChanakyaYes Duryodhan Chaitanya Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Eshvar Yes Yes Bali Yes Yes
Answer the following Q1. Who visited Swarghat, Gokul, Ayodhya and Arki? (a) Anirudh (b) Bali (c) Chaitnya (d) Duryodhan Q2. Who visited Swarghat, Gokul and Mathura? (a) Anirudh (b) Bali (c) Chaitnya (d) Eshvar Q3. Who visited Swarghat, Mathura and Ayodhya? (a) Anirudlh (b) Bali (c) Chanakya (d) Duryodhan Q4. Who visited Swarghat,Gokul and Arki but did not visit Ayodhya? (a) Anirudh (b) Bali (c) Chanakya (d) Eshvar
Answer kev: Problem 1: Q1. (d) Q2. (b) Q3. (a) Q4. (d)
