Read the post to know how to ace your Logical Reasoning preparation for Law Entrance Exam.

This article has been divided into four sections:

·         Table of weightage of logical reasoning in CLAT, AILET and DU LLB
·         Books you should refer to and paper pattern in previous years
·         Exam strategy
Expected Questions in 2018 law entrances
Section I

First things first, the weightage of marks of this section in CLAT, AILET and DU LLB .

Name of the exam
Total marks for logical reasoning
Marks per question
Negative marking
No negative marking

Section II

Next thing is what should be your study material

The only Reasoning Preparation book that is recommended is, A modern approach to logical reasoning by RS Aggarwal. This is the best book that would find a mention in all CLAT preparation books. It is also talked about as an AILET preparation book.

Now let us look at previous year paper pattern. Questions have been asked from the following topics in last 5 year papers:

·         Puzzles- missing numbers, or missing letters
·         Logical pairs
·         Data sufficiency questions
·         Coding and decoding- artificial language based questions
·         Completion of letter or number series ( Mostly covered only in 2013)
·         Logical conclusions from statements given
·         Seating arrangement questions
·         Calculating distance covered by when data about directions traversed is given
·         Syllogisms

Section III
This section would talk about what should be your exam strategy
Strategy 1 is to definitely go through the past year papers.  Questions do get repeated with minor changes and this will build your confidence.
Strategy 2 is mock tests. More you practice the better you get.
Strategy 3 is not letting many books pile up. This will only build pressure, and get you confused. RS Aggarwal, the one book, is sufficient.
Strategy 4 is devising a method to save time. Try and learn tricks to solve questions faster.
Section IV will talk about Expected Questions in CLAT 2018

Some questions which can be expected in the 2018 exams are as follows
I)     Family relationship based questions are often asked. Different relations between people will be notified in the question paper, and one has to apply logic to arrive at the relation between two given people mentioned in the paper. Expect 3 questions of this kind.

The tip here is that to find the relation between A and B you must know the gender of A. So, start with that.
II)  Data sufficiency or calendar based questions
An example is that you have to find out what day it is going to be on the 13 March in year 2021. You are given two facts. One is that December 25 of the last year was Tuesday and the last year was a leap year. The answer here is that both statements do not provide enough information to answer the question so pick that option.
Tip : These are a little unnerving but also common sense questions if you remain cool. This segment is important from the point of view of DU LLB preparation tips.
III) Coding decoding or letter exchange
In coding decoding questions an artificial language is given for instance "Apple" means "CRRNG" in the new language then what will "sports" be in this new language.
This is a fairly simple and scoring portion.
IV) Direction
Another important set of questions are about direction sense and using movement in different directions to find distance covered. Expect 3 questions from here.
The tip is to make a direction diagram on a rough sheet, and that will make your work much simpler.
V)  Questions of facts, judgment and inference
This section tests your reasoning skills and knowledge of syllogisms.  
Three statements are given and what is the conclusion based on the three statements. Expect two questions of the kind. These are also called Deductive, inductive and abductive reasoning questions
VI) Strong and weak arguments
Strong arguments come from facts and weak arguments do not have facts to support them. Plus, it will be clear from the language as to which argument is weak and which strong. Strong arguments will have terms such as "most", "extremely", "absolutely" and weak arguments will have terms like " perhaps", "maybe", "sometimes"
This means seven easy questions straight in your pocket.
VII)   Visual reasoning or which number/ symbol follows the pattern kind of questions
Further, there are questions where one or more patterns are drawn on sides of a cube, and you have to determine the logical pattern which should come next.
In a symbol series you will be given three symbols and you have to deduce the fourth symbol. The analogy should be found between first two symbols and applied to the third symbol.
Usually, you will see that the second symbol has been arrived at by rotating the first symbol by a certain angle. For example 90 degrees. So, your answer figure will be arrived at by rotating the third symbol by 90 degrees.
Only preparation and practice can make you score in this section.
VIII)   Maths sequence

There are also mathematical sequences where there is a mathematical connection between given numbers, and you have to identify the next number in the series. In the number series there are various types.
If you are good at Maths then this section will be quite easy for you so cover it together with Maths preparation. This is a good way to go about CLAT preparation. Expect 4 questions from here
IX)  Venn diagrams - All apples are oranges, some grapes are apples. Which grapes are oranges?
Here oranges is the largest circle which holds all apples in it. Therefore, apples are the sub sets of oranges. The circles for grapes and apples intersect. Therefore the answer is some grapes are oranges. This answer has been arrived at by making different sets based on given information. This is called the venn diagram representation.
X)   Verbal classification kind of questions are important. There is a link between two words. You have to identify that link, and apply that to the next set of words to find out what the fourth word should be. For example, bird: sky :: ant:?
Here, the relation between bird and sky is that bird moves in the sky, question is where does the ant move so the answer is " ground". These are quite simple to solve.
This information now has covered tips, and expected questions of each type. Use elimination method whenever at a loss. Pick an answer choice, apply that to given facts and see which answer is correct.

Do not forget that time is of essence. If you solve the question but spend 10 minutes on it then you were better off not answering that question. Ideally spend 1 minute per question. Devote an hour of study every day to this section, practice questions discussed above and do not go for rote method, and have clear concepts as this section gets very interesting once you get a hang of it. Practice makes perfect just like in Maths. Wish you luck!
