# 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:

Which figure completes the series?

Question Figures ::                    Answer Figures ::

A      B      C       D          E            1     2      3        4       5

 A) 1 B) 2 C) 3 D) 4

Explanation:

The pattern followed in the given figures is

One, two, three, one, two, three.....arcs get inverted sequentially. This inversion takes place in an Anti Clock Wise direction.

Hence, figure 1) will come in the next to complete the series.

Q:

What is the number of straight lines and the number of triangles in the given figure.

 A) 10 straight lines and 34 triangles B) 9 straight lines and 34 triangles C) 9 straight lines and 36 triangles D) 10 straight lines and 36 triangles

Explanation:

The Horizontal lines are DF and BC i.e. 2 in number.

The Vertical lines are DG, AH and FI i.e. 3 in number.

The Slanting lines are AB, AC, BF and DC i.e. 4 in number.

Thus, there are 2 + 3 + 4 = 9 straight lines in the figure.

Now, we shall count the number of triangles in the figure.

The simplest triangles are ADE, AEF, DEK, EFK, DJK, FLK, DJB, FLC, BJG and LIC i.e. 10 in number.

The triangles composed of two components each are ADF, AFK, DFK, ADK, DKB, FCK, BKH, KHC, DGB and FIC i.e. 10 in number.

The triangles composed of three components each are DFJ and DFL i.e. 2 in number.

The triangles composed of four components each are ABK, ACK, BFI, CDG, DFB, DFC and BKC i.e. 7 in number.

The triangles composed of six components each are ABH, ACH, ABF, ACD, BFC and CDB i.e. 6 in number.

There is only one triangle i.e. ABC composed of twelve components.

There are 10 + 10 + 2 + 7 + 6+ 1 = 36 triangles 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

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:

A cube is painted blue on two adjacent surfaces and black on the surfaces opposite to blue surfaces and green on the remaining faces .Now the cube is cut into 216 smaller cubes of equal size.

 A) 56 B) 48 C) 32 D) 64

Explanation:

We know that Cubes with no surface painted can be find using $x-23$, where x is number of cuttings. Here x=6.
