Tips And Tricks And Shortcuts For Visual Reasoning
Visual Reasoning Tips and Tricks and Shortcuts
Under this page we will provide you many tips and tricks to clear your doubts about the topic and for solving visual reasoning questions in a quick and simple manner.
There are several types of questions which come under the examination. Details of the same are given below.
Tips and Tricks and Shortcuts for Visual Reasoning- Series Problems(NON-VERBAL)
The questions under non-verbal series will be asked in a box on various patterns such as signs, codes, patterns, shapes and different images.
For example: A same figure x will come again and again but there will be a change in the position of x. These types of problems contain four or five figure series. The examiner may ask to find out the incorrect pattern or missing series. What all you need to do is identification of the changes in the figures and based on that answer the same. Let’s understand the problem by below given sample.
Question 1. Out of the Problem Figure find out the right solution from the five choices given in the solution figure.
Explanation: The lower short line rotates 90’o anti clock wise in each step while the upper short line rotates 90’o clock wise in alternate steps.
Tips and Tricks for Visual Reasoning- Classification Problems
Under classification problems, few figures will be given to you and you need to identify the one which is different from the group. Identification of various patterns is the most important part of this problem. Try to practice the different-2 patterns so that you can crack the questions easily.
Question 1. Five figures are given below. Four out of these five are alike in some way; however one figure is different from other. Find out that one?
Explanation: In all the figures except figure c two lines are parallel to each other. Hence option C is correct.
Visual Reasoning Tips and Tricks and Shortcuts- Mirror Images
Mirror image is an image which we see in a mirror. These are the objects which are similar to another, but with the reversed arrangement. In other words the image of an objects change its side such as left side of an object will show right side and right side of an object will show left side.
Further mirror images are divided into 5 parts mainly:
1) NUMBER MIRROR IMAGES: In number mirror image problem number will change its side such as left side of a number will come in right side and right side of a number will come in left side. The mentioned picture will help you to understand more about the number images.
Select the option which closely looks like the mirror image of the specified combination?
Option D clearly follows the above given number chart arrangement.
2)LETTER MIRROR IMAGES:
In letter mirror image problem letter image will change its side such as left side of a letter will come in right side and right side of a letter will come in left side. The below mentioned picture will help you to understand the topic properly.
In this if you observe carefully there are some letters which are having same mirror images. By remembering these letters you can easily solve the questions without putting an extra effort. List of these letters are: A, H, I M, O, T, U, V, W, X, Y. let’s understand the same by an example.
Question 2. Select the option which closely looks like the mirror image of the specified combination?
Explanation: Option B clearly follows the above given image chart arrangement.
3)SHAPE MIRROR IMAGES: In shape mirror image problem various types of shape problems will be there. In this shapes will change its side such as left side of a shape will come in right side and right side of a shape will come in the left side. The below mentioned sample will help you to understand the same much better.
Question 3. Select the option which closely looks like the mirror image of the specified combination?
Explanation: Figure A will clearly resembles the mirror image of the given figure.
4)GEOMETRICAL IMAGES: Under geometrical mirror image rules clock and time questions are asked. If we put a clock in front of a mirror then its image will be total different then the real one. Few tips are there to understand the clock and time problems easily.
Tip 1: If a clock time is between 1.01 to 10.59 then subtract the time by 11.60.
Tip 2: If a clock time is between 11.01 to 12.59 then subtract the time by 23.60.
Tip 3: If you want to find out the timings based on hour then subtract by 12.
Question 4. If the time in a clock is 6.10 then what will be its mirror image?
As per geometric mirror image rule for clock time between 1.01 to 10.59, clock time needs to be subtracted by 11.60. Hence 11.60-6.10= 5.50. Refer the below image for more clarification.
5)MIX MIRROR IMAGES: Under mix mirror image rules questions are asked containing mixed type such as alphabets and numbers. For solving these problems we need to first understand the rule of letters and numbers.
Let’s understand quickly with the help of an example.
Pick the option which strictly looks like the mirror image of the given combinations.
Option D clearly follows the rule of letter and number mirror images. Hence D is correct.
