Reasoning and logic analysis

Topic Reasoning in Competitive tests and Logic analysis

Apart from Maths and English, problem solving skill is tested in modern day leading competitive tests through a relatively new topic Reasoning. Though in daily life use, reasoning involves use of result bearing common sense also, in a formal academic test environment usually there is no place for subjectivity. Thus a number of different types of problems each with precise answers have been designed for testing the pattern recognition skill, analytical skill and logic analysis skill of the student, and are clubbed under the topic Reasoning.

Typically Reasoning includes problems of types, Analogy, Coding-decoding, Family relations, Logic puzzles or even English word, sentence and paragraph analysis.

We will start this new branch with how to solve the relatively more difficult and confusing logic puzzles efficiently in quick time by applying the powerful collapsed column logic analysis technique and then will go on to explore other types of Reasoning problems that require efficient problem solving.

In general stress will be on logic analysis.

How the following posts are organized

All the posts starting with "How to solve..." belong to the top level category of Tutorial. The rest are gathered from other categories of posts because the content of such a post is predominantly rich in Reasoning or Logic analysis. The tutorials are more academic with more detailed explanations.

An example of such other-than-Tutorial category posts is, SBI PO type high level floor stay reasoning puzzle solved few confident steps 1 under subcategory SBI PO which is under top level category Exams. This has been the first post in a series of SBI PO level reasoning puzzles solved and explained in detail under category exams.

A second example of such other-than-Tutorial category posts is, Method based solution of Einstein's logic analysis puzzle whose fish under subcategory Brain teasers which is under top level category Variety. This in fact is the detailed solution of a very popular and large assignment logic analysis puzzle generally known as Einstein's puzzle or Einstein's riddle that we solved applying the efficient Collapsed column logic analysis technique.

This series of posts starts with first presentation of the Collapsed column logic analysis technique in How to solve difficult SBI PO level reasoning puzzles in a few simple steps 1.

The posts appear in latest first time sequence.
