Verbal reasoning is understanding and logic through concepts and words. Its purpose is to assess the ability to think constructively, rather than by controlling simple reading or vocabulary. Verbal reasoning tests provide an assessment of a candidate's ability to think, explain, and solve problems in different ways. These skills can be broken down into the following groups: Vocabulary, Grammar, Comprehension, and Critical Reasoning.

The Verbal Reasoning Test

Vocabulary assessments test your understanding of the words that are used in your line of work. This is measured through various assessments, such as mixed sentences tests, complete the sentence tests, spelling tests, and more. Grammar tests examine your understanding of English grammar and your ability to recognize good or bad grammar. Comprehension tests are designed to measure your ability to understand written information, analyze it, and interpret what you have read to answer questions. Critical Reasoning tests (e.g. the Watson Glaser Test) are more advanced tests that measure how you analyze the information in front of you.

Verbal Reasoning Sample Questions:

Open to Practice

Companies wishing to increase their growing pace occasionally use the method of franchising which provides a new owner with the permit to use their business identity and in return to purchase products exclusively from the company. However, most companies will aim to minimize the use of this method and often prefer the expansion of the companies' own branches. Companies who have previously used franchising learnt the essential need to monitor the business operation of the franchised branch. Difficulties arise from franchisees and companies disagreeing on business policies such as customer care, service delivery efficiency and quality of human interaction. Inadequate attention to the monitoring of franchisees on the part of the companies is typically the cause of subsequent problems.

Q1. All companies are now more aware of the need to monitor franchisees.

  • a) True
  • b) False
  • c) Cannot Say


We know that "most companies will aim to minimize the use of this method" and that "Companies who have previously used franchising have learned the essential need to monitor the business operations of the franchised branch". However, the text doesn’t mention companies that have never franchised beforehand. Therefore, this saying cannot be generalized to all companies. For instance, it could be that franchising companies have become more aware of the need to monitor, while the opposite trend has gone on with all other companies.

The answer is: Cannot Say

Q2. Franchisees may have different views than the 'mother' company on how to manage the franchised business.

  • a) True
  • b) False
  • c) Cannot say


The text clearly states that, "Difficulties arise when franchisees and companies disagree on business policies…".

The answer is: True.

Q3. Franchising is likely to become the most popular method of increasing business expansion.

  • a) True
  • b) False
  • c) Cannot say


The text states clearly that most companies will, "… aim to minimize the use of this method”. Therefore, franchising is not likely to become the most popular method of increasing business expansion.

The answer is: False.

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions

What the test will look like?

In most cases, the test will contain a text that will be presented to you with questions that will be answered using True, False or impossible to say without more information. In some cases, you will be asked about the meaning of a word or sentence from the text. It is recommended to contact the employer and try to obtain any information you can about the actual tests you will be taking, this in order for you to prepare properly.

What does Verbal Reasoning analyze?

The tests are designed to assess your understanding, reasoning and analytical ability rather than your vocabulary and grammar. One very important quality that the employer will address is whether you are “jump” to conclusions or analyze and think before giving an answer. Sample sentences:
The lights were on in the house - Did the conclusion be that there is someone in the house? The answer is No.
If a car A is larger than car B - Does it mean that the car is small? The answer is No.

Is it important to be able to read fast?

Being a fast reader will certainly help but it is more important to understand what you are reading and to know the difference between fact and assumption. The amount of answers you give is important, but it is more important to answer correctly and not be mistaken.

Important Tips:


  • Divide the time correctly between the questions
  • Read the questions first before giving answers
  • Do not use your general knowledge but focus on the writing only
  • Do not try to "see" things that are not part of the text
  • Do not waste time on an unclear question, if you have time at the end go back to it
  • Try to ignore everything around you
