Analytical Reasoning Skills:-

The Questions on Analytical Skills will examine the logical thinking abilities of a candidate.

No specialized knowledge of any particular field is required for answering the questions and no knowledge of the terminology and conventions of formal logic are presumed.

In the Questions on Analytical Skills you need to analyse the situations on which each Question is based and then select the answer choice that is most appropriate response to the question.

Each set of Questions or group of Questions is based on a passage or set of conditions. In answering some of the Questions, it may be useful to draw a rough diagram. For each Question, select the best answer from the choices given.

Verbal Skills:-

Because the Verbal sections include reading sections from different context areas, you may be generally familiar with some of the material; however, neither the written passages nor the questions assume detailed knowledge of the topics discussed.

Types of Multiple Choice questions used in Verbal sections include:

  • Reading comprehension

  • Sentence completions – your ability to recognize words or phrases that both logically and stylistically complete the meaning of a sentence.
