How to Answer Verbal Classification Questions
Read the instructions. Sounds simple but a pretty common mistake! More on how to take a test
Analyze the given group. Examine the items carefully and look for commonalities, patterns, or relationships. Identify any distinguishing features or characteristics.
Identify the odd item. Try to identify the item that does not fit the established pattern or relationship. Look for differences or deviations from the expected pattern.
Eliminate options. Go through each option and compare it with the other items in the group. Determine if there are any clear differences or if it shares a common feature with the other items. Start eliminating options that fit the pattern or relationship observed among the majority of the items. Elimination is your best multiple choice strategy
Use logical reasoning. Consider the relationships or properties of each item and evaluate if they match the given criteria. Logic Practice
Watch out for multiple relationships. There might be multiple patterns or relationships within the group. If you can identify more than one relationship, use them to guide your decision-making process.
