Non Verbal Reasoning Questions


What is Non Verbal reasoning?


The term 'non verbal' indicates 'does not involve any language'. Non verbal reasoning is a test that involves ability to understand, interpret and analyse the visual data and solve problems using visual reasoning. The questions in Non verbal appear in diagrammatic and pictorial form .so, these tests can also be called as diagrammatic or abstract reasoning tests. Non verbal reasoning test includes identifying relationships, finding series, Image analysis, finding similarities and differences between shapes and patterns, identifying errors and inconsistencies in a large variety of topics as series, pattern completion, Image analysis, paper folding, cubes and dice, mirror images, classifications, shape construction, figure matrix, dots analysis, grouping of images, paper cutting, analytical reasoning and more.


Non verbal reasoning skills show one's general intelligence and ability to learn new things. We do find non verbal reasoning questions in many Entrance tests, competitive exams and placement interviews. Usually reasoning questions are found in Entrance exams, UPSC exams, PSC exams, bank exams, MBA exams and other tests to calculate one's critical thinking abilities. One can easily solve Non verbal reasoning with logical thinking, quick analysing abilities and thorough practice.

Q:

Find the number of triangles in the given figure.

A) 28 B) 32
C) 36 D) 40
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 36

Explanation:

  

The simplest triangles are AML, LRK, KWD, DWJ, JXI, IYC, CYH, HTG, GOB, BOF, FNE and EMA i.e. 12 in number.

The triangles composed of two components each are AEL, KDJ, HIC and FBG i.e. 4 in number.

The triangles composed of three components each are APF, EQB, BQH, GVC, CVJ, IUD, DUL and KPA i.e. 8 in number.

The triangles composed of six components each are ASB, BSG, CSD, DSA, AKF, EBH, GGJ and IDL i.e. 8 in number.

The triangles composed of twelve components each are ADB, ABC, BCD and CDA i.e. 4 in number.

Total number of triangles in the figure = 12 + 4 + 8 + 8 + 4 = 36.

Q:

How many dots are there on the dice face opposite the one with three dots?

A) 2 B) 4
C) 5 D) 6
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 5

Explanation:

From figures (i), (ii) and (iv), we conclude that 6, 4,1 and 2 dots appear adjacent to 3 dots. Clearly, there will be 5 dots on the face opposite the face with 3 dots.

Q:

Find the minimum number of straight lines required to make the given figure.

A) 11 B) 14
C) 16 D) 17
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 14

Explanation:

  

The horizontal lines are AK, BJ, CI, DH and EG i.e. 5 in number.

The vertical lines are AE, LF and KG i.e. 3 in number.

The slanting lines are LC, CF, FI, LI, EK and AG i.e. 6 in number.

Thus, there are 5 + 3 + 6 = 14 straight lines in the figure.

Q:

What is the number of triangles that can be formed whose vertices are the vertices of an octagon but have only one side common with that of octagon?

A) 64 B) 32
C) 24 D) 16
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 32

Explanation:

  

 

When the triangles are drawn in an octagon with vertices same as those of the octagon and having one side common to that of the octagon, the figure will appear as shown in (Fig. 1).

 

   

 

Now, we shall first consider the triangles having only one side AB common with octagon ABCDEFGH and having vertices common with the octagon (See Fig. 2).Such triangles are ABD, ABE, ABF and ABG i.e. 4 in number.

 

 

 

Similarly, the triangles having only one side BC common with the octagon and also having vertices common with the octagon are BCE, BCF, BCG and BCH (as shown in Fig. 3). i.e. There are 4 such triangles.

 

This way, we have 4 triangles for each side of the octagon. Thus, there are 8 x 4 = 32 such triangles.

Q:

Observe the dots on a dice (one to six dots) in the following figures. How many dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots?

A) 2 B) 3
C) 6 D) Cannot be determined
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 2

Explanation:

We shall assume the dice in fig. (ii) to be rotated so that the 5 dots appear at the same position as in fig. (i) i.e. on RHS face (i.e. on face II as per activity 1) and 1 dot appears at the same position as in fig; (i) i.e. on Front face (i.e. on face I). Then, from the, two figures, 2 dots appear on the top face (i.e. on face V) and 4 dots appear on the Bottom face (i.e. on face VI).

Since, these two faces are opposite to each other, therefore, two dots are contained on the face opposite to that containing four dots.
