Logical Reasoning :

Statement & Conclusion: Identify whether the conclusion logically follows from the statement (e.g., Statement: All swans are white. Conclusion: Some white birds are swans - True).

Cause & Effect: Establish a cause-and-effect relationship between events (e.g., The car wouldn't start. The battery was dead - Cause: Dead battery, Effect: Car wouldn't start).

Strengthening & Weakening Arguments: Evaluate arguments and identify factors that strengthen or weaken them (e.g., Weakening Argument: If it rains, the ground is wet. The ground is wet, so it rained - There could be other reasons for a wet ground).

Identifying Assumptions: Recognize underlying assumptions in arguments (e.g., Assumption: Everyone who works hard will be successful - Not everyone who works hard is guaranteed success).

Analogies: Identify relationships between concepts and find similar relationships in other pairs (e.g., Doctor : Patient :: Teacher : Student).

Exercise 1: Analyze the following statement and conclusion: "All flowers are red. Roses are flowers. Therefore, all roses are red." Is the conclusion logically true? Why or why not?

2. Alphanumeric Series :

Identify the pattern in a sequence of letters and numbers and predict the next term (e.g., A1, B2, C3, D4, E...).

The pattern could involve alternating letters and increasing numbers, adding a fixed value to both letters and numbers, or following a more complex logic.

Exercise 2: Find the next term in the series: 2W, 4X, 6Y, 8Z, ...

3. Ranking/Direction Puzzle :

You are given information about the relative positions or directions of objects or people (e.g., A is to the left of B, C is between D and E).

Use this information to deduce the final arrangement or answer questions about their positions.

Exercise 3: In a line, A sits to the left of B, C sits to the right of D, and B is not next to D. Who is in the center?

4. Data Sufficiency :

You are presented with data in the form of statements or numbers and asked to determine if the data is sufficient to answer a specific question.

Analyze the information carefully and identify if it's enough to reach a definite conclusion (e.g., Data: The total cost of 2 apples and 3 oranges. Question: Is the cost of an apple more than the cost of an orange? - Insufficient data).

Exercise 4: Data: The average weight of 5 students. Question: Is one student heavier than 70 kg? - Insufficient data (we need individual weights).<
