Mettl – Domain-Specific Tips for Preparation
Logical Reasoning domain
Logical Sample Question
In a hi-tech company, no engineer plays basketball, but some engineers are sprinters.
The correct answer is (C) – Neither I nor II follows.
According to the statement, Engineers don't play basketball, and some engineers are sprinters. The following illustration represents the statement:
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.
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.
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?
Alternatively, go over the answer options one by one and see if any of them works out as true.
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.
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 follow a statement/ only one of them follow the statement/ none of them follows the statement.
When solving Analogy questions, start by defining the relationship between the pair of given words, by placing them in a sentence that precisely describes that relationship. Then you can pick the answer which replicates the same relationship.
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 Sample Question
If the sum of squares of two different integers is greater than 144 and their product is smaller than 40, what is the possible value of the integers' difference?
Let the two integers be x and y. According to the question:
x² + y² > 144 and x * y < 40
The connection between the integers' sum of squares and their product, in a way that will lead to their difference, is the contracted multiplication formula of:
(x - y)²
(x - y)² = x² - 2xy + y² = x² + y² - 2xy
Knowing that x² + y² > 144 and x * y < 40
x² + y² - 2xy > 144 - 2 * 40 => x² + y² - 2xy > 144 - 80 => x² + y² - 2xy > 144 - 80 =>(x - y)² > 64 => x - y > 8 or x - y < -8
Therefore, a possible value for the integers' difference would be a number greater than 8 or smaller than -8. The only value in the answer options that fits that demand is 12.
Refresh your memory regarding the use of a calculator – four basic operations, percentages, exponents, functions etc.
Refresh your memory regarding various high-school and college level math topics such as: percentage formulas, proportions, unit-conversions, statistics and probability, algebraic formulas, geometry, differential math, work-rate and travel questions etc. Fortunately, we are here to assist you, with dozens of extra practice quantitative questions in our Mettl General Aptitude PrePack to ensure and solidify your preparation.
When facing numerical word-problems, graphs, charts or tables:
Read the problem carefully and mark important data.
Pay attention to what you are being asked.
Understand and process your steps of calculation.
Re-check your calculation.
A nice way to build your confidence is to practice mental math in everyday situations, like calculating discounts and change at stores.
Verbal 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.
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).
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 familiarising 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.
Familiarise yourself with the correct usage of grammatical times, preposition, adverbs and adjectives, etc.
When asked to correctly structure a text, read it afterwards as a whole, and verify its logic and coherence.
** Work on expanding your vocabulary – learn different words' meanings, their synonyms and antonyms. Familiarise yourself with different idioms
