with a series of sample tests with exam-
ples of verbal, numerical, abstract, situa-
tional judgment, accuracy & precision,
and prioritizing & organizing questions.

graph of text on virtually any topic, this
test requires to choose from 4 or 5 an-
swer options the one that fully matches
the statements in the original text.
There is always only one correct an-
swer because other options may con-
tain insufficient information or false
statements. There are 20 verbal reason-
ing questions in a competition, and the
allocated time is 35 minutes.
2.Numerical Reasoning: In the form of
multiple-choice this test requires data
interpretation and mathematical calcula-
tions. Using information presented
through tables and graphs, you will be
required to draw conclusions and calcu-
late changes within these data sets. Ba-

ages, arithmetic operations, and ratios
must be reviewed prior to taking the
test. There are 10 numerical reasoning
questions in a competition, and the allo-
cated time is 20 minutes.

of images, this test requires candidates
to identify which one should be next in
the row, based on an inherent logic be-
