Hi Anshul,

what strategy do you follow while solving the DS questions?

I do the following:--

As soon as i see the question I note what is given and what is asked.

Then i take statement 1 and see if its sufficient
If its true
then i keep the answer choice A/D as a contender
If its false
then I keep B/C/E as contender

Then i go to statement 2 and Check if its true (while checking this I also check for the case in which both A and B will give me the answer,otherwise I have to solve again!)
IF B alone is sufficient
if A was sufficient too
then I mark the answer as D
else
I will mark B as answer
else If A and B together are sufficient
then I will mark C as answer
else
i will mark E as answer


Now, My question to you is: why are you getting the DS questions wrong? Are you not looking into all the possible cases?
Are there any specific type of problems in which you are facing issues?
Are you having problem in between answer choices C and E (i mean those kind of questions where you think that something should be obviously implied and you end up assuming it when it is not supposed to be true?)




Then is ee
