Aptitude tests are an inextricable part of all public sector entrance exams in India. In India, aptitude tests are divided into two sections:
  • Quantitative Aptitude
  • Logical Reasoning

The Reasoning Ability portion in most competitive tests contains two types of questions. Logical and analytical reasoning are the two forms of reasoning. In this post, we'll go through all of the topics covered in logical reasoning, as well as how to solve them.

What is Logical Reasoning?
Aptitude problems that require a reasonable degree of thought to arrive at the correct solution are referred to as logical reasoning. The majority of the questions are built around ideas, while the rest include creative thinking.

There are two forms of logical reasoning:

Verbal Reasoning is the capacity to consider and solve problems that are articulated in words logically. The ability to derive knowledge and meanings from a sentence is tested in verbal reasoning.

Nonverbal Reasoning is the ability to objectively interpret concepts and solve problems expressed in numbers, letters, or figures in conjunction with words is known as nonverbal reasoning. Nonverbal reasoning assesses a person's ability to deduce and infer logic from data and consequences in a problem.
One such portion is rational reasoning, which appears on almost all major government tests. The two forms of reasoning can be used in substantial parts of the reasoning curriculum.
