CAT Verbal Ability | Syllabus | Questions | Preparation tips

Cat verbal ability (VA) and reading comprehension (RC) are two different units of the CAT VARC section.

While CAT reading comprehension is all about reading comprehension alone, cat verbal ability primarily comprises parajumbles, odd sentences, and para summary. Of late one new variety has been added to VA. It has been termed as ‘Fill in the missing sentence’. Many also call it paragraph completion. But conceptually and in approach, it is very similar to parajumbles and odd one out.

Barring the latest addition of paragraph completion, the VARC paper pattern has been pretty much consistent for the past eight years. However, if we take a look at the papers of pre 2015 era, we find that a number of questions came from grammarvocabulary  and a few other topics. Though grammar and vocabulary are no longer a part of  CAT VARC, they are a very important part of the verbal section of other management entrance exams.



One more thing that all aspirants must know is that in the VA part there are some questions that are of non MCQ type. In other words, these are questions that don’t have options. One has to instead enter the right answer in a box given below the question.

Parajumbles and Odd One Out are non MCQ type of questions. They don’t carry any negative marking. If the answer is correct, you get full marks. If wrong, there is no negative marking. But for paragraph summary and for fill in the blanks (para completion) you are provided with options from which you have to choose your answer; there is negative marking if you mark the wrong option.
