Section 3: Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation Prep for this Month

Target Topic: Logical Reasoning

The first type of questions we explore in this section are based on various seating
arrangements and what would be the sequence of individuals in any such arrangement. The
trick to solve this questions is to make a small diagrammatic representation of the given
problem and then to fill in the information given. This is the flowchart approach to solve
these questions and this works best. Solving these questions verbally can leave you in a
tangle. So make sure you draw a small little diagram every time you solve these sets.Explore
the logical reasoning sets here.

Puzzles for CAT

Though a topic that does not directly appear in CAT, puzzles form an important part of a
students preparation strategy. Solving a lot of puzzles will definitely enhance your logical
reasoning abilities and these one-question problems can actually act as stepping stones for
solving full-fledged LR sets. Explore some puzzles here.
