hi All

i am posting here just to explain some of the methods ,which help me , to solve all kind of critical reasoning questions..

for CR one has to think critically ...this is what i thought while i started GMAT stuff.
but really with the time and with the experience i came to know that this is not the game of critical thinking at all...though somewhat ..but not fully!!!
So i figured out a very good method..tested one..as i am the source

while i started CR i took 50 questions and i ended up with the score 26/50 but after 2 months..i again took another bunch of 50 questions..all are 700+ stuff..
and guess ..!!!!
score was 49/50..one i missed because of hurryness while selecting ans.

any ways...i will suggest the following steps ..at least you try ..and then please provide me the feedback.
1) SCOPE Elimination.. : As i solve again and again gmat questions i came to know that in general there are 2-3/5 options such that it is totally irrelevent..out of scope.
so try to eliminate those 2-3 options state away..
2) POE(I called it a short form of Process of Elimination): eliminate those involving extreme answers choices ..at least more than 97% questions this is the wrong questions so its better to make it wrong choice.

3) after these 2 steps you must ended up at least 2 and at max 3 choices ..no here is the trick..
to select right one here...
in these 2-3 1 must be looking different from other 2 in case u left wid 3..n mind it..this is the right one..
just try it

"IN THE END I WILL SAY...TO CRACK CR BEST WAY IS ELIMINATION"
please try this method at least onceas it involves 3 months of hard work
and please provide feedback...in case u like it press kudos.. also

thanks

Your ultimate realization will be that whole verbal is about elimination :) - SC is about elimination(choose the best answer); CR is about elimination and RC has well same questions as CR has except the context is different so again elimination helps a lot.
