Reasoning ability is something that your mind actually thinks about why and how. It is the ability to take inputs from 5 sensory organs process the data and give the relative solution. The only way to test reasoning ability is by taking part in problem-solving and checking the time taken for the solving problem. Less time consumed during solving a problem can lead you to a higher ranking. That’s why you need a proper preparation strategy and tips to solve the reasoning question.
The reasoning is necessary to be able to make decisions based on the factual nature of the situation and not just an emotional response. But in competitive examination Reasoning plays a vital role in enhancing the marks because of its handy nature. The importance of this section becomes valuable when the questions of reasoning belong to a high level.

In this section ability to think logically is required. In this section, Statement and Conclusion, Statement and arguments, Statement and assumptions, Statement and cause and effect are included.
The level of questions require an extra approach to deal with. Input-Output, Puzzle, Inequality, Syllogism, Decision Making are included.
General Mental Ability:

The easiest chapter of reasoning are included.
How to Prepare for Quantitative Aptitude
The question asked from this section are very basic in nature requiring a thorough knowledge of basic mathematics from class-V to class-X. If you are preparing for the first time, the NCERT books of mathematics may prove a boon to you. To solve the question of this section very efficiently and accurately you must know certain things. Also, a proper preparation strategy and tips should apply. Here are some important things you should know:
- The basic rules applied in each chapter.
- All the formulas and their application to solving the sums.
- You must know the traditional method of solving a sum or equations and after that, you can practice the short cut tricks to solve the same. This will clear your concept of understanding the basics.
- Basic calculation and approximation( or rounding off) concepts are highly needed as sometimes they can drive you straight to the correct answer.
- The concept of percentage is very much important and it is the core of the entire Arithmetic. You must know it properly.
Now, lets come into solving another type of question. These are Data Interpretation and Data Analysis. To solve the sum of data interpretation and data analysis, you must first know the followings things-
- The type and nature of the graph involved in a certain problem as it can give a hint about the right answer.
- You must know the concept of ratio and proportion.
- You Must Know the concept of average and percentage.
The whole questions regarding data interpretation and data analysis hinge upon calculating the average, percentage, and the ratio of variables. As you calculation consumed times. Doing fast and accurate calculations can play a big role in your examination. To improve your calculation speed you need to practice more and more.
