I have found that my DS ability is severely lacking compared to PS. As of now, my strategy:

1. Attempt to reword the question. I am usually only successful at this about 20% of the time. Either I reword to something that isn't helpful, or I am not able to do it at all.

2. List out abcde, and look at each statement at a time, trying to eliminate possible answers.

I rely heavily upon backsolving in PS, which can't be done in DS. How does everyone else attack DS?
