Mettl – Domain Specific Practice Tips for Preparation

Logical Reasoning Domain

Logical Reasoning Sample Question

In a hi-tech company, no engineer plays basketball, but some engineers are sprinters.


Conclusions:

  • Programmers who are sprinters, play basketball.
  • Some sprinters play basketball.

Choose the correct answer:

A. Only conclusion I follows
B. Only conclusion II follows
C. Neither I nor II follows
D. Both I and II follow
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

According to the statement, Engineers don't play basketball, and some engineers are sprinters. The following illustration represents the statement:

Mettl Logical Reasoning Answer

Based on the illustration, it is clear that there is no information regarding programmers, which dismisses conclusion I, and there is no information regarding basketball playing among sprinters who are not engineers. One can only tell that engineers, in general (including those who are sprinters), don't play basketball. Therefore, none of the conclusions can be deduced from the statement.

 

 Important Logical Reasoning Practice Tips

  1. In questions with a complex set of information (e.g. seating arrangement questions, family relations riddles, language coding, etc.) Use a pen and paper to write down details you discover or answers you rule out. You can also create a table/flow chart and use it to organize your information.

  2. When you’re done going over the clues once, do it again – can you infer any new information or rule any answer out, now that you have some new conclusions?

  3. Alternatively, go over the answer options one by one and determine which one is true.
  4. When dealing with Syllogisms, distinguish between generalizing statements (something always happens with something else) and existence statements (something sometimes happens with something else). Remember - generalizing ≠ existence. Therefore, you should refrain from inferring a general rule out of an existing phenomenon.
  5. When dealing with Cause and Effect questions, in which you have to decide whether two sentences maintain a cause and effect relation or not, relate only to the information given in the question and refrain from making personal assumptions. The same advice applies to Data Sufficiency questions, in which you have to decide whether two given conclusions: A. Follow a statement. B. Only one of them follows the statement. C. None of them follows the statement.
  6. When solving analogy questions, start by defining the relationship between the pair of given words, and placing them in a sentence that precisely describes that relationship.  Then you can pick the answer which replicates the same relationship.
  7. When solving Number Matrix questions, read both rows and columns of numbers carefully. Take into account that the logical rule of transition is different between rows and columns, therefore, choose to focus on either rows or the columns of the matrix and find the rule they dictate. For the purpose of validation, you may then find the other rule, and proceed to verify the correctness of your answer by checking whether the number you came up with fulfills the other rule as well.

Quantitative Reasoning Domain

Quantitative Reasoning Sample Question

Ann, Matt and Zack are working for a cleaning company. Together, they can clean a house in 2 hours. If Ann does the job alone, she can finish it in 5 hours. If Matt does the job alone, he can finish it in 6 hours. How many hours will it take Ann and Zack together to finish the job?

Choose the correct answer:

A. 3
B. 4
C. 5.5
D. 6
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

Step 1:
In order to solve this problem, first find out Zack's work rate indicated as 1/Z (1 house in Z hours).

According to the question, the total work rate of all three people together is 1/2 (1 house in 2 hours), Ann's work rate is 1/5 (1 house in 5 hours), and Matt's work rate is 1/6 (1 house in 6 hours).

Each person contributes his share to that total rate, meaning:
Ann + Matt + Zack = total
 1/5 + 1/6  + 1/Z   = 1/2
=> 1/Z = 1/2 – 1/5 – 1/6    //30 is the lowest common denominator
=> 1/Z = (15-6-5)/30         //Multiply both sides by 30
=> 30/Z = 15 – 6 – 5
=> 30/Z = 4                       //*Z
=> 30 = 4Z                        //Divide both sides by 4
=> Z = 7.5
Thus, Zack's work rate: 1/7.5


Step 2:
The total time it will take both Ann and Zack to clean a house:
1/t = 1/5 + 1/7.5       //15 is the lowest common denominator
=> 1/t = (3+2)/15
=> 1/t = 5/15
=> 1/t = 1/3             // Multiply both sides by 3t
=> t = 3 hours.

A nice way to build your confidence is to practice mental math in everyday situations, like calculating discounts and change at stores.


Verbal Reasoning Domain

Verbal Reasoning Sample Question

Identify the error in the given sentence.


'They go to the party without him by the time he got there,' said Jean.

Choose the correct anwser:

A. Go
B. Hi
C. Time
D. There
Correct Answer
Incorrect Answer

Since going to the party occurs before he gets there, the verb to go must be in the past tense. Thus, the correct sentence is as follows: 'They went to the party without him by the time he got there,' said Jean.


Note that the going must have happened in the past because the past tense verb 'got' is not an answer choice and, consequently, must be correct.


Therefore, the correct answer is (A).

 

Important Verbal Reasoning Practice Tips

Reading Comprehension questions

  • For most questions, it is recommended to read the question first, notice what you are being asked and identify the process you need to perform.
  • Mark keywords in the question and find the corresponding paragraph in the text.
  • In case of a quote-specific question, locate the paragraph in which the quote appears, and in addition to reading it, also read the ending sentence of the preceding paragraph and the beginning sentence of the next paragraph.

Verbal Ability questions

  • Notice grammar and syntax, by familiarizing yourself with the differences between commonly confused words, like there vs. their vs. they're, etc. Learn when and where, in a sentence, each can be used.
  • Familiarize yourself with the correct usage of grammatical times, prepositions, adverbs and adjectives, etc.
  • When asked to correctly structure a text, read it afterward as a whole, and verify its logic and coherence.

** Work on expanding your vocabulary – learn different words' meanings, their synonyms and antonyms. Familiarize yourself with different idioms.
