# Part-II: General Abilities (weightage = 20%) a) Basic Arithmetic, Algebra and Geometry, (SSC Level) b) Logical Reasoning and

Analytical Ability c) General Mental Ability a) Basic Arithmetic, Algebra and Geometry, (SSC Level) Well, this portion has been something quite alarming for the aspirants. Well, you don’t have to worry at all. You just have to go through the Mathematics of 5th and 8th standard. Keep it in mind that this very portion of Mathematics contains hardly 10 marks out of the paper of 200. Therefore, give it the time and value of 10 marks ONLY. I wish I could have contributed in this regard as well but I am not able to do so since I have a science and Arts background.  b) Logical Reasoning and Analytical Ability This is the most interesting of all portions of NTS and my most favorite one too. There are hardly 25 to 30 TIPS for attempting this portion. It merely requires a delicate touch of IQ level along with good tinge of Common Sense. Analogy means comparing more or less similar situations and then drawing some result. The symbol ( : ) represents Analogy. Here are some tips for it. i. Try and put the first pair of words into a sentence ii. Try and eliminate the wrong answers using the limination Method in case you don’t know the right one. iii. Try and develop a closer comparison in case you have more than one correct option e.g. If Imran Khan : Pakistan then i. Steve Waugh : Australia ii. M. S. Dhoni : India iii. Allan Border : Australia iv. Jayasuriya : Sri Lanks v. David Camaron : England Now try and develop a relation between Imran Khan and Pakistan. If you say that Imran Khan is the citizen of Pakistan, then all the options would be correct since they are the citizins of their respective countries. Therfore, try and draw a closer relation. Imran Khan was the Pakistani Cricketer. And now you have 4 options as correct ones. Now, even closer relation. Imran Khan was Pakistan’s Cricket Team captain in World Cut. And now you have 3 right options. Closer relation would be that Imran Khan was Pakistan’s first cricket team captain who lifted the world cup. And now you have Allan Border as the right analogical answer. As neither Steve Waugh nor M. S. Dhoni was the first to lift the world cup for his country, Some of the analogical comparisons are as follows: i. Part Of Speech Thief : Steal ( Nounn ) : ( Verb ) ii. Definition Refuge : Shelter iii.
