There are 4 parts on the IR: Multi source reasoning, 2 part analyses, table analyses, graphic interpretation.

I want to get just 4,or 5 score and so should do the easy parts.

what is most easy parts? I see Multy source reasoning is headest and want not to do this part.

The easy part really does depend on what your strengths and weaknesses are. It's different strokes for different folks. Practice and find out what you're good at and use that to figure it out..

Also, bear in mind that this system is wildly unpredictable. As best we know, 4 of the 12 IR questions are unscored experimental questions. Skipping problems intentionally will introduce a lot of variance into your score, since you might get lucky and skip all four experimental questions but you also might sink your score by spending all your time solving 3-4 experimental questions.

do you think that the first questions are the most easy questions of the IR section? if that is the case, I will try to solve the first questions. My purpose is to get a "no problem" score, which is about 4 or 5.

some questions in IR is so hard that I can not understand the problem after reading the question. Most of IR questions take me a lot of time. I guess I can do only 4 - 6 questions in 30 minutes.

pls, comment of my thinking.

I don't think that the first questions are the easiest questions. It basically comes down to chance for the difficulty/order of questions in the IR section since it is not adaptive. It is difficult to shoot for a certain score since you can't determine which questions are experimental and which questions are graded.

And in my opinion, graphic interpretation was the easiest form of question. As long as you can read a graph, you should be able to answer the questions easily.

Graphics Interpretation and Table Analysis are generally the "easier" sections of IR. Of course, there can be traps and mistakes that you might make that screw you up in these sections - but generally they don't require as much brainpower as Two-Part Analysis or Multi-source Reasoning.

For Graphics - you might have to look at understanding various charts, figure out subsections of graphs within others, calculate millions divided by thousands (pay attention to decimals), and all kinds of charts. With table analysis, there are a lot of CONDITIONS that require you to figure out the average/median for certain subsets of data.

For Two-Part Analysis - the verbal ones can resemble Critical Reasoning on steroids - multiple steps to visualize and get the right answer. The Quant ones love to use units to add complexity to the problem and these require multiple steps to solve.

Multi-source Reasoning requires a lot of attention to detail and references to 2 or 3 sources of information. It resembles RC because of the "inference" questions but can also involve some math calculations as well.
