For speed and accuracy in solving such questions please remember place value of each English aplphabet when placed in a sequence


1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

And also when these are placed in reverse order.

Also when the first half is reversed or 2nd half is reversed

or when both the halves are reversed

Remember: Keep in mind the direction from which the letters are to be counted from LEFT or RIGHT

Before answering a question, please imagine and place the given facts in proper sequence for quick and correct answer i.e, with SPEED and ACCURACY


Preview 24:27

Certain words are the key hints in such problems. Preceding or succeeding, middle, equidistant etc read in proper context will help in solving the questions with SPEED and ACCURACY

PRECEDING ....means before

SUCCEEDING ... means after/following

How to trace out letters/numerals following certain given conditions or lying at defined position.

Basic rule is to

Satisfy the given conditions,

better to identify the conditions and

then satisfy one by one and

with PRACTICE one is able to GRASP SHORT CUTS also.

Reasoning - 02 - Conditional Letters Numbers

For effective solutions of these questions, candidate must have good knowledge of the alphabetic series and place value of letters in continuous and reverse order


1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

Reasoning - 07 - Ranking Test

Knowledge of directions -

Four main direction .. East, West, South and North

Cardinal directions - NE, SE, SW and NW
