Two passages (Attempt in the last)
Correction of Sentences (Do them as soon as possible)
Inferential Reasoning (Do them as soon as possible)
Dont do a mistake in attempting passages at first because they will eat your time. Please do the other part with accuracy
Analytical (Refer Verbal and NonVerbal Reasoning by R.S. Aggarwal)
Cubes (One definite one)
Binary no Question- The logic given in the question is confusing. The trick is to just convert the Decimal no to binary and represent into $ and *
Venn Diagrams(easy ones)
Data sufficeiency(Refer R.S Aggarwal Solved Questions)
Some profit-loss and Ration proportion(R.S aggarwal)
Try to do some Puzzles in R.S aggarwal as they will help you in cracking logic.
