The reasoning is a very important section in competitive exams. There is no such thing as enough practice when it comes to this section. Time and time again this section has surprised people with the variety of questions it asks. And that is why we have decided to cover as many topics as we can for reasoning section. And today we are going to discuss with you the rule detection test. This topic is a part of non-verbal communication in reasoning section.

## Non-verbal Communication

Non-verbal communication includes problem-solving through various diagrams and pictures. Thereby testing the ability of a student to analyze the visual information and try and solve the problems based on his/her visual ability. Many times figures are given and you need to find the odd figure among them. For rule-detection, we are given some figures and based on the rules we need to determine the correct figure.

For example, you could be asked to identify which figure among the following could become more open or more closed? You only need to find the figure that obeys the rule given in the question. This type of questions requires your imaginary as well as logical skills. This can be developed through practice. When you practice with different figures and shapes, you develop a different mindset and thus this allows you to imagine out-of-box. These questions are not at all time consuming so it can help you boost your score as well.

Here are some of the questions and the approach to solve it.

### Examples

Q. Out of the following closed figures, which figure will become more open than the other figures?

In this type of question, you need to imagine which figure can be open quickly than the other. In the figures given in the question, the first figure is of a circle which won’t be the quickest. Similarly, the second figure will also lead to a circle. Out of the third and fourth figure, the fourth has been almost opened in the last step and that is why it will open the quickest.

Q. Out of the following closed figures which will be opened the quickest and which open figure will be closed the quickest?

In the given figures you need to find which will open quickly as well as close quickly. From the options, you can see the three options i.e. B, C, and D does not follow any rule. They are neither opening nor closing. The only option that is left is A in which the small curve of the triangle is closing while the triangle is itself opening. So the correct answer is (A).

Q. Find the circle from the following whose size is decreasing but the area is increasing in terms of number.

Here in the question, four different circles are given. In these circles, various types of arrangement are given. Based on this arrangement you can see that the size of the circle is decreasing but in the last option, you can see that the final circle is divided into 8 parts. From the circle rule, you can say that the area of this circle is greater than the previous circle. Thus option D satisfies the given requirement in the question.
