Puzzles are an important part of Reasoning Section, the one that you cannot escape from. It is the topic that dominates the Reasoning Section of all sorts of banking exams. So many other miscellaneous topics too are now being asked in the form of puzzles.
The number of questions being asked on puzzles ranges from 60 to 65 percent of the total number of questions in the Reasoning Section. So it is now very obvious that the strategy of ignoring questions based on puzzles, thereby solving other questions won’t be working anymore as neglecting questions on puzzles can risk the likelihood of you clearing the sectional cut off or scoring satisfactory marks in the Reasoning Section.
The puzzles are usually based on Seating Arrangement (linear, circular, triangular, rectangular and sometimes hexagonal even), Floors, Tabular form, Blood Relations, etc. They can be asked in 2-4 variables, depending on the difficulty level of every different question. A mix of Seating Arrangement and Blood Relations is also being frequently asked in the examinations.
An important TIP to solve DIFFICULT PUZZLES with 100% accuracy is to make 2-3 possibilities for the same puzzle and keep canceling them out as you proceed. Another important point to bear in mind while doing puzzles is not to ignore the important key points while reading the question. For example, many times, students happen to ignore “he/she” given in the question itself and keep wondering in the end if what would the gender of a particular character mentioned in the puzzle. So, avoiding such silly mistakes can help you make the grade.
The puzzles that are easy to solve should not consume more than 2-3 minutes, the puzzles of moderate level should be solved within 5 minutes and the difficult puzzles should be finished within 8-10minutes. If the time that you take while solving different puzzles is more than the time affirmed above, then you really need to work on it. The only way out to deal with puzzles is continuous practice. The more you practice, the better you get. So, to let you practice and ace the score in the Reasoning Section of all the Banking Examinations, Bankersdda is proving you with as many as 50+ puzzles. Knowledge is of no value unless you put it in practice. Keep practicing, it will pay big time.
