SERIES COMPLETION

In this type of non-verbal test, two sets of figures pose the problem. The sets are called Problem Figures and Answer Figures. Each problem figure changes in design from the preceding one. The answer figure set contains 4 or 5 figures marked A, B, C, D, E. You are required to choose the correct answer figure, which would best continue the series. These tests are based on pattern perception tests, originally devised in England by LS Penrose.

Example

Study the problem figures marked 1,2 and 3 caftfully and try to establish the relationship between them. From the answer figures marked A, B, C, D and E pick out the figure which most appropriately completes the series.

Explanation

Note the direction of arrow which changes alternately. The dots are also changing alternately. Hefice, we are looking for a figure in which the arrow points down and the dots and positimed as in figure 2.

Rotative Type

The various elements in the diagrams move in a specific manner. They may rotate in clockwise or anti-clockwise direction.

Example

Explanation:

The black dot is moving clockwise inside and small circle is moving clockwise outside the rectangular figure.

VERBAL REASONING

Verbal reasoning is a test of logical reasoning, common sense and a fair knowledge of the English language. These tests use words, letters and numbers and also necessitate a reasonable measure of technical, scientific and mathematical knowledge.

WORD ANALOGY

Word analogies test your skill in logical thinking by finding a relationship between words. You are given a pair of words in capital letters – the question pair. This pair is followed by four pairs marked (a) to (d), one of which is the answer. Establish a relationship between the two words of the question pair. Then select a pair from the second set that has a similar or the closest relationship to the first pair.

WISDOM : FOLLY : :

:

 a) Valiant : brave b) Suave : debonair c) Victory : defeat d) Star : constellation

At first, establish a relationship between the two words of the question pair.

Then, look at the four choices and search for the answer pair with the same relationship.

WISDOM and FOLLY are opposites. VICTORY and DEFEAT are opposites too. The answer is (c)

WISDOM : FOLLY : : VICTORY : DEFEAT

This is read as “wisdom is to folly as victory is to defeat” - the colon ( : ) is a symbol that means “is to” and shows that the two words are related in some way. The double colon ( :: ) between the two pairs means “as” showing that the second set of words bears the same relationship.

Note: These questions can be asked in different ways as shown with the examples below:

Type 1

:

 a) Swim : breath b) Novel : read c) Dive : snorkel c) Shaft : engine

Answer: (c) A saddle is used for riding. A snorkel is used for diving.
