# 50+ Questions on Classification Non Verbal Reasoning

Under logical reasoning, Non Verbal reasoning practice set is an important component that assesses analytical thinking in addition to several other abilities. Analogy, classification, series, image and figure counting, cube and dice, and other related subjects are some of the other significant subjects covered within Non Verbal reasoning practice set. In this article, we will cover the topic of classification from scratch to advanced.

It’s very important to practice Classification  Non Verbal Reasoning Questions while you get ready for India’s competitive exams. Different categories of Classification Non Verbal Reasoning questions are included in the following article. Now let’s begin practicing classification questions.

## What is Classification? What are Classification Non Verbal Reasoning Questions?

Classification is defined as the method of sorting the various items of a given group based on certain common qualities they possess and identifying the odd one out. The classification section addresses different categorization standards that can be applied to group the items. This classification may be based on some common characteristics they have, such as shape, number of sides, division of figures, etc. So, the things that have these qualities in common are grouped, and the object that doesn’t—the odd one—should be taken out of the group.

Let us understand the basics of classification through one example:

In the above figures, each of the figures except the circle is formed with straight lines. Thus, the circle is the odd one out since it doesn’t fit in with the shared characteristics

## Types of Classification Non Verbal Reasoning Questions

Let’s examine each of the many question kinds that could appear below one by one:

• Choosing the Odd Word Based on General Knowledge: Identify the word that stands out based on overall knowledge.
• Choosing the Odd Number: Differentiate number pairs to identify the one with a unique relationship.
• Choosing the Odd Numeral Pair/Group: Find the incorrect pair or group among given numerical combinations.
• Choosing the Odd Letter Group: Identify the group of letters that don’t fit the established pattern.
• Choosing the Odd Pair of Words Based on Synonyms and Antonyms: Select the pair where the words have an unusual relationship in terms of synonyms or antonyms.
• Choosing the Odd Pair of Words Based on Image: Determine the odd image pair by recognizing visual differences.

## Tips to Solve Non-Verbal Reasoning Practice Set on Classification

Time Management is a very important factor in every competitive exam. One should always have a ready-made strategy beforehand as to how to solve questions in a limited time frame. The challenge is that some questions check your calculation ability as examiners want to be aware of how many students can solve the questions with speed and precision. So if you wish to solve your government or bank or any question paper quickly then you should utilize the below tips of reasoning and Classification (Non Verbal Reasoning) which will help you to solve government, bank, and other exam papers without any problem.

• Since the Verbal reasoning questions dealing with classification are one of the trickier ones, applicants should carefully read the question before selecting their response.
• Since most of the Non Verbal reasoning questions related to classification will call for it, candidates must be able to think creatively and have evaluation abilities to answer questions on Non Verbal reasoning.
• In “Selecting the Odd Figure-based questions”, four or five figures with the labels (a), (b), (c), (d), and/or (e) are provided. Three or four of these figures share qualities and are thus somewhat similar. One of the figures does not fit with the other figures since it lacks the shared qualities. You need to select a figure that does not belong to the group.
• In “Choosing Figure with Same Characteristics based questions” there are questions and answer figures being provided. Based on some shared characteristics, the problem figures are connected, and one of the answer figures is included in the group of problem figures. The figure that you remove from the collection of problem figures is the one you must use as your solution.
