These problems will be in random order. Cause these are practice papers, for those who already have a clear basic. For basic level preparation you can first complete concept based courses and then come to practice course.

  4. LOGICAL REASONING: Seating Arrangement >Complex Data Arrangement >Matching Puzzle Team Formations Quantitative Reasoning

  5. DATA INTERPRETATION: Table Bar Charts Pie Charts Line Graph/X-Y Graph Case let

  6. VERBAL REASONING and OTHER REASONING TYPES: Syllogisms Binary Logic >Venn Diagram Blood Relations > Numbers and letter series, etc.

  7. How to Prepare?

  8. LOGICAL REASONING: With lots of practice you need to develop . Ability to analyze information and reach proper conclusion in as less as possible time. Ability to pick sets wisely. . Assuming data of any kind is injurious to your score. So, be very careful! Stick to the information conveyed by the given problem. (P.S. This is I think the most commonly committed mistake in logical reasoning section)

  9. DATA INTERPRETATION Interpreting the question correctly plays an important role here. Since, the data that is necessary to solve those question will be mostly given directly in the form of graphs/ charts/tables >Choosing sets wisely is important, as some sets could be deceptive. It would seem to be less challenging, but turn out otherwise. >With practice you can overcome the threat of being deceived. Mostly, DI involves many high school mathematics topics like ratio, percentage, averages, profit / loss, etc. So, it's important to keep the basics clear to attain maximum calculation efficiency and speed.



  12. 3. Keep an eye on the watch. While you practice, assess which kind of problem requires more time by clocking yourself. . Play the "Challenge game" with yourself. Move out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself to solve a certain question within stipulated time. Once you achieve a target, make it even more challenging. It time to test your limits.

  13. Keep Calm and Practice a lot!

  14. Overview of the course: .
