## Tips and Tricks to solve the Personal Interviews Questions for Campus Recruitment Test

• If you want to stand out & beat the competition in your Campus Placements, the first step is to ace the Written Aptitude Test. Reasoning  Aptitude contributes a lot to increase your scores. No aptitude test is complete without questions based on coding, series & odd man out
• Methods of learning in one chapter can be used in other chapters
• Whether the Question is simple or difficult you can know the options.
• Focus on all areas in reasoning will help you crack Reasoning section

Click on below video session by P V Rama Sasank (IIM-Calcutta) having 10+ years of experience in Reasoning Ability, to know more about the topics (Coding, Number series and Odd Man Out)

The Following questions are based on coding, series & odd:

1. 8, 12, 14, 18, 20, 24, __

A. 30

B. 31

C. 28

D. 26

Explanation:

The given series in form  8, 12, 14, 18, 20, 24, _

The difference between the series in form 4, 2, 4, 2, 4, 2

So the next term should be added +2

so it will be 26.

2. 840, 820, 700, 780, 540, __

A. 210

B. 200

C. 220

D. 320

Explanation:

The given series are in form 840, 820, 780, 700, 540, __

The difference between them is 20, 40, 80, 160, 320

Every difference term is multiplied by 2

So, 160 becomes 320

The Next term will be (540-320)=220.

3. 8, 18, 29, 42, 58, __

A. 68

B. 63

C. 78

D. 84

Explanation:

The given series are in form 8, 18, 29, 42, 58, __

The difference between them is 10, 11, 13, 16, 20

The difference between 10,11= 1

The difference between 11,13= 2

The difference between 13,16= 3

The difference between 16,20= 4

So the next term in given series is (58+20)= 78

4. 1000, 992, 965, 901, ___

A. 667

B. 676

C. 776

D. 767

Explanation:

In the  Level 2, the next difference between them is 0

The Level 1 differences are 31, 37, 41, 43, (43+0)

So the series will be in form 9, 40, 77, 118, 161, (161+43)

The next term will be  201

The Level 3 difference between them is  6

The Level 2 the next term will be is  14, 20, 26, (26+6)

The Level 2 the next term will be is  14, 20, 26, 32

The Level 1 the next term will be is  9, 23, 43, 69, (69+32)
