LR preparation for CAT practice questions

CAT exam normally has 14-16 questions on Logical Reasoning or LR as it is a part of DILR section (Date Interpretation + Logical Reasoning). The difficulty level of the questions is moderate but you can't crack them with maximum accuracy so easily. Cracking CAT Logical Reasoning questions require practice because there is no formula to be memorised or concepts to be understood. LR questions are basically puzzles that you need to solve on the basis of given data, pattern, visuals, etc. 

The topics in Logical Reasoning section of CAT include Alphanumeric series, Analogies, Blood Relations, Calendars, Cause and Effect, Clocks, Coding-Decoding, Cubes and Cuboids, Data Sufficiency, Decision Making, Statement Analysis, Figure Matrix, Input-Output, Dices, Odd One Out, Syllogism, Picture Series and Sequences, Pattern Series and Sequences, Shape Construction, Statement and Assumptions, Statement and Conclusions.

Cracking Logical Reasoning questions for CAT exam is not difficult if you see them as brain teasers. All that you require is to develop logical thinking to solve the puzzles.
