Alphanumeric Series Alphanumeric (sometimes shortened to alphameric) is a combination of alphabetic and numeric characters. In some cases, it may include upper and lower case letters, punctuation marks, and symbols (such as @, &, and *,). This type of reasoning is a mixed bag of coding-decoding, series-based reasoning and finding positions based reasoning questions. Points to note Before jumping to the questions, let us understand the meaning of few key words that are generally used in such questions like "following, followed by, preceding, and preceded by". Let us take two successive alphabets Y and Z. Here, Y is preceding Z and Z is preceded by Y. Also, Z is following Y and Y is followed by Z. Now, take three successive alphabets X, Y and Z. Here X and Y are preceding

Logical Reasoning: Directions Concepts In this article, we are going to discuss how to solve direction sense test questions in reasoning Directions questions asked in the exam are based on two principles- Distance Direction The first step for solving the questions using the concept of 'directions' is to understand the direction chart, which has 8 directions. Take a look at the direction chart given below. The first point you need to remember is that each main direction change undergoes a 90° change in direction e.g. from North to West/East it will be 90° change. But the change between North and North-east is only 45° The next important point that needs to be kept in mind is that directions problems generally quiz you about the minimum distance, distance by air, crow fl

Number Test Example 1 : How many 6s are there in the following number sequence which are 8 6 6 10 5 6 8 7 5 6 10 9 8 6 7 8 7 5 4 3 6 7 8 9 Solution: In this series, you are looking for a group consisting of 6, followed by 7 i.e. 67, which is preceded by 8 i.e. 8 appears before 6. Hence, the complete number becomes 867. Thus in the given series, 8 6 6 10 5 6 8 7 5 6 10 9 867 8 7 5 4 3 6 7 8 9, the required sequence appears once.  Measure your progress by t
