    4 TIPS on answering Aptitude Questions on Data Interpretation


    Tip 1: Use a physical calculator and a notepad


    Online proctored tests disallow candidates from using Calculator Software Applications in Desktop/ Laptop/ Mobile Device where the test is being given. However, a separate handheld calculator can be used.

    Use a notebook with a pencil to jot down relevant numbers to help you in making quick calculations.



    Tip 2: While calculating averages, it is easier to assume an approximate mean and calculation average of differences from that mean




    Question: What is the average marks scored by the student across all six periodical exams?

    Solution:

    You can assume the mean to be 380.

    The differences from the assumed mean are: -20, -15, -10, +5, +20, +25

    Average of the differences = + 0.83333

    Average Marks = Assumed Mean + Average Difference = 380.8333

    Tip 3: Percentage of Change (Increase/ Decrease) = Difference/ Original Value * 100
    Question:

    If the expenditure in 2000 is 25% more than expenditure in 1997, then the income in 1997 is what percent less than the income in 2000?

    Solution:

    Assume that Expenditure in 1997 is Rs.100. Expenditure in 2000 = Rs.125.

    Profits in 1997 = Rs45 (45% of expenditure)

    Income in 1997 = Rs145

    Profits in 2000 = Rs75 (60% of expenditure)

    Income in 2000 = Rs200

    Change in income from 2000 to 1997 = Change/ Original Value x 100 = 55/200 * 100 = 27.5%

    Tip 4: Grasp the information from the chart visually to answer some questions very quickly
    Question: Nearly 20% of the funds are to be sourced through?

    Solution:

    Roughly a quarter of all the funds are to be sourced through this channel. Which implies a sector with an angle of around 90⁰.

    The only sector with an angle close to 90⁰ is “External Assistance”.

  • Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems
    9 TIPS on cracking Aptitude Questions on Visual-Spatial Problem Solving

    Tip 1: For pattern construction questions, remember that the resultant pattern must be formed using only the given figures

    Question: Find out which of the figures (1), (2), (3), (4) can be formed from the pieces given in figure (X).
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    The figure must consist of a right triangle, a trapezium and an irregular pentagon, as shown above. Looking at the options one by one, we see that option (1) consists of the given figures rotated by 90⁰, the triangle and trapezium, clockwise, and the pentagon, anti-clockwise. (2) is not made of any of (X) except the trapezium. Similarly, (3) does not contain the pentagon and (4) consists of all shapes other than those in (X). Thus, the correct option is (1).

    Question: Find out which of the figures (1), (2), (3), (4) can be formed from the pieces given in figure (X).
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    (X) Consists of 2 isosceles triangles and 2 right angled triangles. Now, (1), (2) and (4) cannot be formed using only these figures. Only (3) can be made using them, as follows:

    Thus, the answer is (3).



    Tip 2: Sometimes, it is quicker to just eliminate the invalid options

    Question: Find out how the key figure (X) look will like after rotation.
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    We analyze the options one by one. (1) Can be eliminated since it contains more sections than the given figure. Similarly, (2) and (3) are also different from (X). Hence the answer is (4).

    Question: Select the alternative in which the specified components of the key figure (X) are found.
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    Analyzing the options one by one, we see that (1) and (2) do not consist of ( ̶ ), while (3) consists of (ᴓ), which is not present in (X) at all. Thus, all these options are eliminated, and the correct answer is (4), which, we may cross-check as containing all components of (X) only.



    Tip 3: For problems on Paper Cutting, imagine the process of folding, cutting and opening, and draw indicative diagrams if required

    Question: Choose a figure which would most closely resemble the unfolded form of Figure (Z).

    A. (1) B. (2) C. (3) D. (4)
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    The paper has been folded at 2 corners and 1 hole has been made on each fold. Since the paper was folded from either corner, when they are unfolded, there will be 4 holes, all on the diagonal joining them. Thus, figure (3) is the correct figure, and the answer is (C).

    Question: Choose a figure which would most closely resemble the unfolded form of Figure (Z).

    A. (1) B. (2) C. (3) D. (4)
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    The paper has been folded equally thrice. Now, when it is unfolded, it will consist of 4 symmetrical parts, that look exactly like the cutout in form (Z). Thus, one of (2) and (3) is correct. Now, figure (3) is incorrect since there is a cut along the base of the (Z) which will result in a joint shape. So the answer is (B).



    Tip 4: In Dot Situation problems, simply find the figure that contains all the sections as the dots in the original figure

    Question: Select the figure which satisfies the same conditions of placement of the dots as in Figure-X.
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    In (X), one of the dots lies in the region common to circle and square only, another dot lies in the region common to square, triangle and rectangle only and the 3rd dot lies in the region common to triangle and rectangle only. In each of the figures (1), (2) and (3) there is no region common to square, triangle and rectangle only. Only fig. (4) Consists of all the 3 types of regions.



    Tip 5: For problems on Embedded Images, find the figure from the given options in which the original figure can be completely traced

    Question: Find out the alternative figure which contains figure (X) as its part.

    (A) 1 (B) 2 (C) 3 (D) 4
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    Looking at the answer figures one by one: (X) Cannot be traced anywhere in (1). Again, in (2), the figure is the lateral inversion of (X). Similarly, in (4), the figure is broken. Thus, all of these can be eliminated. Only in fig. (3) can fig. (X) be traced. Therefore, the answer is (C).

    Question: Find out the alternative figure which contains figure (X) as its part.

    (A) 1 (B) 2 (C) 3 (D) 4

    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    From the figures, it is clear that fig. (X) cannot be traced in fig. (1), (2) and (3), but can be traced only in fig. (4). Thus, the answer is (D).



    Tip 6: Mirror Image of a figure has all parts of the figure laterally inverted but not vertically

    Some points to note are:

    1. Mirror images of alphabets A, H, I, M, O, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and digits 0, 8, are the same as the original ones.

    2. The mirror image of a sequence of words and/or numbers is the mirror image of each, written in the reverse order.

    3. The figure should remain the same vertically.

    Question: Choose the alternative which is closely resembles the mirror image of the given combination.
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    Only the 2nd option can be correct since in all the other options the 1st and last characters are incorrect, i.e. not beginning with the mirror image of 2 and ending with A. Thus, the answer is (2).


    Question: Choose the correct mirror image of the figure (X) from amongst the alternatives
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    Options (1) and (2) may be eliminated since they are vertically inverted as well. Now, since the small square appears on the left side of the line in (X), it should appear on the right side of the line in the mirror image. So the answer is (3).



    Tip 7: Water Image of a figure has all parts of the figure vertically inverted

    Thus, here:

    1. The water images of alphabets B, C, D, E, H, I, K, O, X, and of digits 0, 8, remain the same as the original.

    2. The water image of a sequence of words and/or numbers is the water image of each, written in the same order.

    3. The figure should remain the same vertically.

    Question: Choose the alternative which closely resembles the water-image of the given combination.
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    Option (1) can be eliminated since it is laterally inverted as well. Again, in (2), L and in (3), E is laterally inverted as well. Only (4) is the correct water image of (X).



    Tip 8: While counting the number of figures, count smaller ones first followed by larger ones etc.

    Note: Remember to count all the figures. For example, if you are asked to count the no. of triangles in a figure, count the simplest triangles, triangles made by 2 simpler components, those made by 3 simpler components, etc. until no triangle can be formed any longer.

    Question: Count the number of triangles and squares in the given figure.

    (A) 36 triangles, 7 squares (B) 38 triangles, 9 squares

    (C) 40 triangles, 7 squares (D) 42 triangles, 9 squares
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Solution:

    The figure may be labeled as follows:

    Triangles:

    Simplest triangles: BGM, GHM, HAM,

    ABM, GIN, UN, JHN, HGN, IKO, KLO,

    LJO, JIO, KDP, DEP, ELP, LKP, BCD and AFE i.e. 18 in number.

    Triangles composed of 2 components each: ABG, BGH, GHA, HAB, HGI, GIJ, IJH, JHG, JIK, IKL, KLJ, LJI, LKD, KDE, DEL and ELK i.e. 16 in number.

    Triangles composed of 4 components each: BHI, GJK, ILD, AGJ, HIL and JKE i.e. 6 in number.

    Total number of triangles in the figure = 18 +16 + 6 = 40.

    Squares:

    Squares composed of 2 components each: MGNH, NIOJ and OKPL i.e. 3 in number.

    Squares composed of 4 components each: BGHA, GIJH, IKLJ and KDEL i.e. 4 in number.

    Total number of squares in the figure = 3 + 4 = 7.

    Therefore, the answer is (A).



    Tip 9: For problems on Paper Folding, draw mirror/water images as required for the folded section and merge with the other section

    Question: Find out from amongst the four alternatives as to how the pattern would appear when the transparent sheet is folded at the dotted line.

    Solution:
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    The mirror image of the right side of the image is given by (C). Hence, it is the correct answer.

    Question: Find out from amongst the four alternatives as to how the pattern would appear when the transparent sheet is folded at the dotted line.

    Solution:
    (See Image..) Tips on Non-Verbal Reasoning Test on Visual Spatial Problems

    Option (A) is clearly not the correct answer. Again, options (2) and (3) may be eliminated since in fig. (X), the two straight lines on the left side are vertical, and those on the right are horizontal. Thus, the answer is (D).
