Reasoning section can be the most confusing part when compared to theother sections. This is because the preparation for this part is totally different and requires less cramming. A strategic approach is necessary for getting desired marks.
Pace academy, a renowned SSC CGL coaching institute from Gurgaon, has presented these tips on how to prepare for this section.
Check for negative prefixes
Various questions carry negative prefixes that can result in different answer than what you are thinking. Therefore, read the questions carefully for prefixes like ‘non’ and ‘un.’
Numerical position of alphabets
It is a wise idea to remember the numerical position of alphabets. It saves a lot of your time while solving these types of questions. If you find it difficult to remember every alphabet with its respective number, try remembering the numbers that are positioned on multiples of five.
Avoid making unnecessary questions
For the most of the questions from this section, the answer is derived from the data provided in the question. Therefore, you shouldn’t make unnecessary assumptions, as it can result in wrong answers.
Attempt coding-decoding at the end
Coding-decoding questions usually take more than time than other questions from this section. Try these questions at the end to avoid wastage of time. Also, the classification-related questions are easiest. Start the reasoning section with these questions.
