**Double Line up**

Here are some of the tips to score better in the doubles line up.

- The reasoning is one of the topics that is not based on calculations. Thus, it becomes quite important to begin building your concepts by practicing a variety of questions.
- It is important to monitor your progress daily by giving mock tests. This will help you in determining your accuracy and speed. Furthermore, the self-analysis will help in knowing your strong and weak areas in the reasoning section.
- Practice reasoning tests by solving previous years papers. Also, it will help you understand the pattern and different types of questions.
- All these strategies will help you in your preparation and you will approach all the problems easily.
- Moreover, you can also strategize your topics for exams beforehand by attempting the time-consuming questions first and then moving on to the easier section.
- Also, you can refer the given order of questions based on series, coding and decoding, syllogism, blood relation, puzzles, direction sense, logical reasoning, and analytical reasoning.

**Few Questions onÂ Double Line up**

Q. Study the information given in the question carefully and answer the questions based on it.

There are eight people A, B, C, D, E, F, G, and H that likes different colors like black, blue, green, red, violet, pink, yellow, and brown in no particular order. Furthermore, they also like to play different games like cricket, hockey, chess, carrom, football, table tennis, volleyball, and lawn tennis. Again the games are not in any order.

B’s favorite game is table tennis, while the favorite color of F is green. Also, D likes blue color and also his favorite sport is volleyball. The person that loves black color plays hockey. A and E doesn’t like to play hockey. Also, the person that plays chess loves red color. It is clear that A does not like red color. While H does not like brown color. But it is mentioned that H loves to play carrom. Also, the person that plays cricket likes pink color. Additionally, C likes violet color very much but doesn’t like lawn tennis.

Q. Based on the information given above, answer the following questions

Q. Which person would love to play football?

The best way to solve these types of questions is to divide the question into short sentences. Try and draw a table using the information given in step by step format. Based on the information, you will form a table like this.

Thus, the correct answer here is person C who loves to play football.

## Double line up Reasoning Questions

C. The person that likes to play hockey loves the green color.

D. The one who loves table tennis also likes yellow color.

E. All the above statements are incorrect.

Answer:Â E. All the above statements are incorrect.

There are a number of errors on this page:

In example 2:

“You can see that each of the numbers is a square and that the sequence is a perfect square series. 1, 22, 32, 42 (=16). The alphabet that corresponds to 16 is P. ”

should read

“You can see that each of the numbers is a square and that the sequence is a perfect square series. 1, 2×2, 3×3, 4×4 (=16). The alphabet that corresponds to 16 is P. ”

(I suspect that the original text from which this was prepared used superscript but this has not been reflected in the online version, so use “2×2” or “2^2” which most people are familiar with from Excel)

In Circular Arrangement Series:

“These type of questions are similar to the ones we saw earlier. But there our numbering scheme would stop at 26 with X.”

should read

“These type of questions are similar to the ones we saw earlier. But there our numbering scheme would stop at 26 with Z.”

In example 3:

“Answer: The lesser the number of alphabets present, the greater the difficulty of the question. Here you see that V and A have a difference of 4 alphabets between them. Similarly, A and H have a difference of 6 alphabets between them if we follow the circular order of the alphabets. Thus the next alphabet will have to have a difference of 8 alphabets with H. This alphabet is Q. Thus the series is V, A, H, Q. Therefore the correct option is s) P.”

This letter is Q. Thus the series is V, A, H, Q. Therefore the correct option is d) P.”

In example 4:

“Answer: We will have to figure out the rule to every sequence. If you use the table, you will see that it becomes much more convenient to guess the rule. For example, in the first series, Q = 17; T = 20, X = 24; C = 29 [circular alphabet order]. Thus it forms a series under the rule. Similarly for the second option, F 6, P = 16, Z = 26 and J = 36. It also forms a correct sequence. Let us see the third one i.e. W = 23; U = 21; R = 18; and N = 14. So it is a wrong sequence. In place of N = 14, we should have had O.

That means the only series here that has a wrong term should be d). Let us check it. We have A = 1, L = 12, W = 23, H = 34.
