Description

About The Book

Verbal Ability and Reasoning are integral parts of most of the competitive examinations that are based on testing the aptitude of an aspirant. While Verbal Ability measures the ability of a student to effectively comprehend and present the written text, Reasoning measures the ability of an individual to analyse a given situation and logically arrive at a solution. The objective of this book is to effectively guide the students to understand and master the areas of Verbal Ability and Reasoning. The pedagogy of the book is closely aligned with the most effective approach towards developing these two skills.
