Eachproblem figure changes in design from the preceding one. The answer figure set contains 4 or 5 figures marked A, B, C, D, E. Youare required to choose the correct answer figure, which would best continue the series. These tests are based on pattern perceptiontests, originally devised in England by LS Penrose.ExampleStudy the problem figures marked 1,2 and 3 caftfully and try to establish the relationship between them. From the answer figuresmarked A, B, C, D and E pick out the figure which most appropriately completes the series.Answer EExplanationNote the direction of arrow which changes alternately. The dots are also changing alternately. Hefice, we are looking for afigure in which the arrow points down and the dots and positimed as in figure 2.

  • VERBAL REASONINGVerbal reasoning is a test of logical reasoning, common sense and a fairknowledge of the English language. These tests use words, letters and numbersand also necessitate a reasonable measure of technical, scientific andmathematical knowledge.WORD ANALOGYWord 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.
