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 mainly six 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.

A.  1
B.  2
C.  3
D.  4
E.  5

Answer: D

Explanation:

The 2 semi circles revere their directions alternatively one after the other. 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?

A.  A
B.  B
C.  C
D.  D
E.  E

Answer: C

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 below mentioned picture will help you to understand more about the number images.

Question 1.

Select the option which closely looks like the mirror image of the specified combination?

33222

Answer: D

Explanation:

Option D clearly follows the above given number chart arrangement.

  1. 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?

RIO

Answer: B

Explanation:

Option B clearly follows the above given image chart arrangement.

  1. 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?

A.  A
B.  B
C.  C
D.  D

Answer: C

Explanation:

As per shape mirror image rule the left side of a shape will come in right side and right side of a shape will come in the left side. The actual mirror image of a real image is C as per this rule.

  1. 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?

A.  6.10
B.  5.50
C.  6.30
D.  5.55

Answer: B

Explanation:

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.

  1. 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.

Question 5.

Pick the option which strictly looks like the mirror image of the given combinations.

KAL1NGA231B

Answer: D

Explanation:

Option D clearly follows the rule of letter and number mirror images. Hence D is correct.

Tips and Tricks for Visual Reasoning- WATER IMAGES

In the water how an objective reflects is known as its water image. In other words it is the reversed object which we get by turning the image an upside down. In this type the main thing which needs to remember is that the left side of the real image will be there at left side only and the right side of the real image will be at right only. There will not be any changes in the position of the main image but the image will change upside down. The below mentioned picture will help you to understand the topic properly.

Looking at the above mentioned water image samples it is very clear now that these images are totally different from the mirror images because it does not changes the position but turns upside down horizontally. Let’s do a sample to know the subject more clearly.

Question 1.

Pick the option which strictly looks like the water image of the given combinations.

HARD

Answer: A

Explanation:

Look at the explanation picture above. As water image rule says the image does not change the position but it turns upside down. Option A clearly follows the rule.

Tips and Tricks and Shortcuts for Visual Reasoning- Spotting Out The Embedded Figure

An embedded figure is the image which hides them in some other image. In this an individual image will be given which will be followed by 4 other images. The question will be asked to find the similar image out of the given options.

 Question 1.

Select the option which closely looks like the embedded figure of the given figure.

A.  A
B.  B
C.  C
D.  D

Answer: D

Explanation:

Looking to the option D we can find that the main image hides itself under the influence of new image which is not the case for A, B and C. hence option D is correct.

Visual Reasoning Tips and Tricks-COMPLETION OF INCOMPLETE PATTERN

This type of problems under nonverbal reasoning is also called as Analogy problems. In this all you need to do is comparison between images. Few related figures will be given to you and you need to develop a new relationship chemistry based on the given data. Let’s quickly solve an example.

Question 1.

Below mentioned figure contains a specific relationship among each other. A,B,C and D contains a problem set while 1,2,3,4 and 5 contains a solution set. There is a connection between figures A and B. you need to develop a same connection between figure C & D by choosing a right option.

A.  1
B.  2
C.  3
D.  4
E.  5

 Answer: D

Explanation:

Looking to the problem set we can see that the figure gets rotated 90 degree anticlockwise.
