maam,
basically the question patterns of almost all clerical exams in india have reasoning questions to be answered.the way you answer them totally depends on your own way of thinking.here are a few tips for you to answer them..
1> solve as much as sample papers before you actually sit in the exam.
2> think every question in a diferrent simple way than a complicated way.
3> FOR EXAMPLE

What will come in place of the question mark (?) in
the following sequence?
ARRANGEMENTS, RRANGEMENT, RANGEMEN, ?, NGEM
(a) RANGEME
(b) ANGEME
(c) ANGEMENT
(d) NGEMEN
(e) None of these
Ans: ( b ) ANGEME
they are very simple questions that analyse you imazing and justifying capability.so it wd totally depent on you approach towars the question.
here is a link where you can find the sample resoning question papers for clericals.
http://www.allinterview.com/showanswers/27633.html.
hope i cd have been able to fulfill the quest.
thankyou

I would better say ,first of all relax yourself, then see the logical or analytical reasoning questions with full concentration, the first thing you should do is read the given question thoroughly and slowly understand the meaning of the given question, then i think u might get the problem easily solved .
Better you go to bookshops and ask them for some books regarding clerical reasoning.You better purchase or have a look to this book known as "The magical book of analytical reasoning" BSC publication ,author M.K.Pandey.
Try this book an ask for some more books regarding analytical reasoning, i think this way your problem will be solved.

Best of Luck

Hai,

Reasoning Ability refers to the ability to apply the process of induction or to reason from specific information to a general principle. Here RA is measured by items requiring the subject to inspect sets of four letters and discover how four of the five sets presented follow a general principle, while 5th does not. Thus, you try to understand, that no reliance is placed on learned material, words, numbers, so that RA scores are the best indicator of non-verbal, non-culturally biased intelligence.

There are Visual Reasoning, Numerical Reasoning tests, where you have to find out what comes next, in the series from your Reasoning ability.

There are no tricks or tips to solve this RA.
Only thing is you should keep on working on various problems, practice, practice well enough to solve them within the time frame. That is the only secret of success.

Regards

Some of the sites which can help you with tips and solutions for logical reasoning questions are Koolcareer.com,indiastudychannel etc
If you are really struggling on our own, join some training institute as the success rule is simple, as many questions you do, more better will you become in solving reasoning questions. Time is also a critical factor. So being able to think and act quickly is the key and for that you need to attempt doing as many questions as possible.

see can't tell you tips and tricks here itself as its not a matter of writing 10-15 lines its matter of entire reasoning section....but try to work on questions on round tables like 5-6 persons are sitting on a table Mr x is right of Mr y and Mr z is third to left of Mr n...in these questions drawing a diagram will help you a lot....if there any particular kind of questions let us know we can tell you tips and tricks for them....

dear friend

According to me, Just get the various authors books from market and
keep practice daily, If you get more practice you will get confidence
on you and try to practice concentration and meditation regularly. This
will help you to remain focused during preparation and also on the day of
the exam..........

remember one thing....see questions from any where in the world but try to solve them on your own and not by looking at solutions and understanding them....u might get stuck up at a question for 20-25 min but even that stuck up is worth since it evolves the ability to think....and this ability will help you crack questions in real exam....just by seeing solutions and understanding them wont help you a great deal...having said that for some typical repeated kind of questions you can have a look at solutions if you get stuck initially since the method to solve those kind is same.....

HI!

For solving reasoning questions one must have good logical & analytical skills.

The reasoning questions that are being asked in different clerical exams are based on specific patterns & topics. The questions will be different in different clerical exam but the pattern & topic will be the same.

Generally the questions are asked from these topics:
Odd one out
Family relationships
Sitting arrangements

You need to understand how the problems based on specific topics are solved. Once you understand it you will solve any problem based on these topics & you will easily clear the reasoning section of clerical exams.

You can refer the book of reasoning by R.S.Agarwal. And try to solve model question papers as well as previous year question papers.

Default Re: Tips to solve reasoning questions in clerical exams?

Bank exams, be it PO or clerical arenít that difficult as people think. But the problem is the vacancies: applicantís ratio. So all you need to worry is about your preparation and not the toughness of the paper.

If you are preparing for PO exam, the first thing you need to know is the pattern of the exam. A written test for a PO exam consists of 2 parts, objective part and a descriptive part . The objective part consists of four sections namely, English language test, quantitative ability, Reasoning and General Awareness/ Marketing aptitude.

The exact pattern for a specific bank can be found in the Ďacquaint yourself bookletí which you get when you apply to an exam.

But for now Iíll discuss on how to attempt a standard bank PO exam which has 225 questions in total with 135 minutes time i.e., 2 hrs and 15 minutes.

225 questions in 135 minutes comes out to be 36 seconds per question. It may seem daunting but itís not the end of the world since we arenít attempting every question. If you can attempt 175-185 questions (> 190 is excellent) with 90 percent accuracy, youíve done a good job.

So as soon as you are told to start answering, I would recommend starting with the General awareness/ Marketing aptitude section and there wonít be much to think or solve in it. Just see the question and mark the answer. Attempt as many questions as you can in this section (only if youíre sure of the answer) but you should be able to complete the section in 25 minutes (20 minutes would be excellent).

The next section to go for would be English and I generally the first 9-10 questions in it will be that of comprehensive passage. So I would recommend leaving that part of the questions as the rest of the section is pretty Basic English which is very easy. Again you should be able to complete this section in 20-25 minutes.

So weíve done with 2 sections in 40-50 minutes and left with another 135 questions which should be done in 85-95 minutes.

Depending upon your strength, go for either Reasoning or Quant but remember to solve the easiest questions first (this will be the deciding factor). Any thing that requires serious calculation in Quant or serious thinking in Reasoning should be left behind at first and come back to it if time permits at the end. For example questions on circular arrangement in Reasoning and compound interest calculations in Quant could be avoided.

From the feedback given by many test takers, what I found is that the DI part in Quant will be an important part in the test which is also very easiest part. Most of the question in it could be solved without even using your pen. So work hard on DI.

Coming to the time for these 2 sections, 50 questions in Quant (or all that you could solve) should be completed in 40 minutes which leaves out 45-55 minutes to solve 75 questions in Reasoning. Donít neglect the non-verbal part in Reasoning as there would be atleast 15 questions from it.

All said and done, you should have atleast 5 minutes at the last which you could either use to solve the Reading comprehension in English or the arrangement questions in Reasoning.

If you are accustomed with any procedure from the beginning, I would recommend following that so that you dont mess up completely. If this is your first attempt for PO/ clerical exam, then this method would work well.

If you have any other question, donít hesitate put them here. Iíll be greatly obliged to answer them.

Observe the series given.
Keen observation and assumption helps to find the reason in it.

Then applying the reason try to find the answer through verification if it works.

In this manner you can do very easily and fastly.

As far as bank clerical exam is concerned you need to devote maximum time to maths and reasoning section as both these sections are scoring and only 1/3 time given to both english and clerical aptitude section.
Accuracy must be counted in attemptin the questions as negative marking is there
