How to answer the Verbal Reasoning questions in the 11+ (Blog series 5 – Thinking Logically)


Verbal Reasoning aims to evaluate the ability of a pupil to think constructively rather than just recognise vocabulary. It covers a whole range of question types, however predominantly it is how letters, words or numbers can be used to complete a task. VR is not taught in schools, and puts pupils who do not practice these questions at a disadvantage.


Our blog series on how to answer the Non-Verbal Reasoning (NVR) questions in the 11+ continues with the next types of questions pupils may be asked for the NVR section of the 11+; Thinking Logically. This type of question involves a series of statements with which pupils need to come to a conclusion based on the information provided.



Thinking Logically


We have included two questions for you to have a go at below, which will give you an idea of what these types of questions entail (answers are at the bottom of the page).

























Answers:

Q1. C (3).


Q2. Yousuf and Matthew.
