In this section, we are going to take a deeper look at the different types of Analytical Reasoning by dissecting them into their parts and laying it all out on a silver platter. When you have to perform Analytical Reasoning questions during your Assessment, you will be presented with a combination of questions which consist of passages, graphs, tables, shapes and you will have to figure out whether there are any patterns that you can induce or deduce.
With regards to the Logical Reasoning parcel of the Analytical Reasoning Preparation Package, you can expect:
- 15 Logical Reasoning tests with 150 questions!
- 12 Inductive Reasoning test with 144 questions in total!
- 9 Deductive Reasoning tests with 135 questions!
With Logical Reasoning, candidates will be assessed with regards to their capacity to formulate an accurate argument and respond to a posed question through the efficient use of Logical thinking and argumentation. Within the field of Logical Reasoning, there are two opposite brain mechanisms, namely, ‘top-down’ Deductive Reasoning, and, ‘bottom-up’ Inductive Reasoning.
Inductive Reasoning focuses more on the non-verbal questions as you are presented with images and have to engage in so-called “ Figural Reasoning”. The images you are shown include “ next in series” questions, “ which is the odd one out” and “ figural analogies”. They measure your spatial thinking ability. These skills are not frequently discussed and exposed in everyday life, nevertheless very important to have. Deductive Reasoning questions predominantly consist of verbal questions where you are presented with a lot of premises, ideas, and statements and you have to draw a logical conclusion.
For further practical application, we give you a no-strings-attached Free Logical Reasoning Test session with 10 questions and solutions. Click on the link above or on the image below to see how you rank against your peers!
Looking further at the Verbal Reasoning parcel of the Analytical Reasoning Preparation Package, you can expect:
- 13 tests with 156 questions in total!
Analytical Reasoning aptitude tests assess your Verbal Comprehension skills. With Verbal Reasoning some questions, you are presented with a written paragraph and it is upon you to conclude whether a statement about the text is true/false/can’t say (too ambiguous to tell).

With other questions, you are challenged to draw conclusions based on several statements. This type of questioning is called Syllogisms and it can be categorized as having elements of both Verbal Reasoning and Deductive Reasoning.

With regards to the numerical reasoning parcel of the Analytical Reasoning Preparation Package, you can expect a:
- 12 Tables and Graphs tests with a total of 240 questions!
- 7 Math Word Problems amounting to 140 questions!
Numerical Reasoning or commonly referred to as Quantitative Reasoning, and, Arithmetic Reasoning does not intend to solely test your proficiency in mathematics. A Numerical Reasoning Test is designed to let participants decipher and logically order numerical data and transpose it to formulate logical conclusions. A basic understanding of arithmetic is enough to ace a Numerical Reasoning test as long as you are equipped with advanced levels of critical and Logical Reasoning skills. Numeracy is an integral part of psychometric tests and you don’t have to be a mathematical genius to figure them out.
In Numerical Reasoning Assessments, you are often challenged with Tables and Graphs questions where you have to interpret numerical data and decipher the information to arrive at the right conclusion through the use of simple arithmetic.

In addition, you can expect Math Word Problems, which are written-out maths questions in a real-life practical situation.
