Tips to solve Logical Reasoning Questions for CAT

Since there is no standardized approach, we cannot define a method that applies to all kind of sets. Logical reasoning sets are like puzzles, which can be unique and might need an altogether new approach. However, here are a few things that students must do before they attempt any logical reasoning and data interpretation set:

  1. Scan the entire logical reasoning set including the questions
  2. Identify the number of parameters (variables) (if the variables are too many and too confusing, then you can come to that question later)
  3. If you think that the variables are not many, then devise a structure of the set on paper
  4. Identify the critical data/conditions given and note them down
  5. Fill the direct data from the conditions and/or represent the data pictorially on paper
  6. combine the conditions to interpret the possibility of conclusive information and put the data and info on the structure.
  7. If required revisit the conditions to narrow down possibilities, and again reinterpret and fine tune the structure
  8. In case of insufficient conditions, scan the question to figure out if we can answer some of the questions. There may be some conditions stated in the questions.
  9. Combine these conditions with existing conditions to figure out the answer.
