Candidates have started preparing for SSC CGL 2020 exam and the competition is only going to get tougher next year. Do not get left behind and start preparing right now while waiting for SSC CGL 2020 new vacancy. The following are some topics you can start your preparation with.
Matrix: In this, two matrices are given. The first row and column of both the matrices have numbers and the rest of the cells have alphabets. Each alphabet can be denoted by two numbers (one of row and other of column). Similarly
one alphabet can be denoted by multiple pairs of numbers. In the question, a word will be given and you will be asked to find the correct sequence of the pair of numbers that denotes each letter of that alphabet.
Word formation: There are different types of words formation-
1. Unscrambling letters - In this, different kinds of questions are asked using scrambled alphabets and you have to unscramble the letters to form a meaningful word. For example,
OVELS - Choose the correct sequence of letters to form a meaningful word:
Denote O=1, V=2, E=3, L=4, S=5
The meaningful word that can be formed is SOLVE. According to this, the sequence is 5,1,4,2,3. Hence, it is the correct answer.
2. Using letters of a word - In this, you need to form different words using the letters of a given word. For example,
MEASURE - Write the first letter of the meaningful word that can be formed with the letters of the given word. If no word can be formed, choose X. If more than 1 word can be formed, choose M.
Words that can be formed are SURE, REAM, SEAM. Since more than one word can be formed, the correct option is M.
Venn Diagram: These depict a relationship between two elements and the data is represented with the help of geometric figures like circle, triangle, rectangle, square, etc. Two types of questions can be asked-
1. Establish a relationship between two or more entities - It is necessary to be aware of common relationships since you would need to link different entities and derive their relationship if any.
Find the exact region - In this, the Venn diagram will already be labelled and you would need to find the region asked in the question.
Direction and distance: This topic is also quite easy and scoring. You need to remember the four main directions which are North (Up), South (Down), East (Right) and West (Left). The four cardinal directions are North-East, North-West, South-East, and South-West. The question asked will be in the following form-
A man walks 5km to the East, takes a right turn and walks 10km. Then he again turns right and walks 6km and finally walks 10km in the North direction. How far is he from the starting point facing which direction?
The answer will be North, 1km.
