Q:   What is the difficulty level of the LSAT India?

A:

The difficulty level of the LSAT India exam is moderate to difficult. The exam has lengthy questions, and reading these questions takes time. In addition, candidates also need time to solve all these questions. But the time limit to solve all the questions is 2 hours and 20 minutes, or 140 minutes. Thus, they get very little time to read and solve lengthy questions in the question paper of the LSAT India exam, which increases its difficulty. Moreover, the Reading Comprehension section of the LSAT India exam is difficult. On the contrary, the questions in the LSAT India are not based on General Knowledge and Quantitative Aptitude or Mathematics. The absence of these two sections that requires continuous practice makes the LSAT India exam easier than the CLAT and AILET exam. The sections under which questions are asked in the LSAT India exam are Analytical Reasoning, Logical Reasoning 1, Logical Reasoning 2, and Reading Comprehension. All LSAT India exam takers need to note that the difficulty level of all exams depends on your preparation. If you prepare well, you can crack the LSAT India and other entrance exams.

 

 

Q:   What are the important topics related to Analytical Reasoning section of the LSAT India exam?

A:

The main topics related to the Analytical Reasoning section of the LSAT India entrance exam are those that aim to analyse the analytical abilities of candidates. Candidates need to provide solutions to problems by considering the given situations and scenarios in the analytical reasoning section of the LSAT India exam. The main topics related to the section are statements and syllogism, directions, coding-decoding, blood relations, course of action, and ranking and time sequence. Studying these topics well can provide candidates with a strong command of the Analytical Reasoning section of the LSAT India exam.
