  • Hello there, my name is Richard McMunn from the psychometric testing website MyPsychometricTests.com,

  • and a very warm welcome to this tutorial, which is Verbal Reasoning Test questions.

  • So, if you have a verbal reasoning test coming up, this tutorial will make a huge difference

  • to your preparation.

  • I'm going to tell you what verbal reasoning tests are, I am going to give you some great

  • tips for scoring highly, and more importantly, I'm going to go through a number of sample

  • test questions and get you to try some yourself!

  • The aim is, by the time you and I get to the end of this video tutorial, you will be fully

  • prepared for your verbal reasoning, test and project into those very warm welcome to this

  • verbal reasoning test.

  • Welcome to this training tutorial.

  • My name is Richard McMunn.

  • That's me there in the center.

  • I've been helping people to pass their verbal reasoning tests and their job interviews for

  • about 20 years now.

  • On that basis, please do SUBSCRIBE to my channel by clicking the red button below the video,

  • and then you won't miss out on any of the weekly training videos that I'm uploading.

  • And I would also very much appreciate it if you supported my channel by giving the video

  • a “LIKE” - thank you very much.

  • So, what is a verbal reasoning test?

  • A verbal reasoning test basically assesses your ability to answer questions as even TRUE,

  • FALSE or CANNOT SAY based solely on the information or the text provided.

  • You are given a passage of text.

  • You are then given a question and you have to answer that question based solely on that

  • information.

  • So, this is very important.

  • This is the first crucial step in helping you to pass a verbal reasoning test.

  • You can only answer the questions based on the information that is provided.

  • And I will explain in more detail what I mean about that in a second.

  • So let's take a look at a sample verbal reasoning test question.

  • It says: read the following passage before answering the question that follows.

  • We are given a passage of text and then a question appears and we have to answer that

  • question as either TRUE, FALSE or CANNOT SAY.

  • Let me just quickly read this passage of text.

  • Now, the text that you are given is usually quite boring in nature and is designed to

  • be so.

  • Okay, but there is a really important tip which I am going to show you in the next slide

  • of how to save time and answer these questions quickly.

  • So I'll quickly read that text.

  • It says: A uniform is a set of standard clothing worn by members of an organisation whilst

  • participating in that organisation’s activity.

  • Modern uniforms are often worn by armed forces and paramilitary organisations such as; police,

  • emergency services and security guards, in some workplaces and schools and by inmates

  • in prisons.

  • In some countries, officials also wear uniforms in some of their duties; such is the case

  • of the Commissioned Corps of the United States Public Health Service or the French Prefects.

  • And then the question isPolice officers are required to wear a uniform.

  • TRUE or FALSE or CANNOT SAY?”

  • Now, we can only answer that question based solely on the information.

  • Now, you and I know for a fact that police officers are required to wear a uniform.

  • However, the answer is CANNOT SAY, because we cannot say from that text.

  • It doesn't say it anywhere, that police officers are required to wear a uniformit actually

  • says, “modern uniforms are often worn.”

  • Okay, so that's the important thing.

  • The answer to the question is CANNOT SAY based on the information that you are given.

  • So many candidates, and this is where you are going to score higher than your competitors,

  • is that many candidates will answer this question as TRUE, because we all know that police officers

  • do, in fact, wear a uniform.

  • But crucially, the word required is not mentioned in that passage.

  • And it says police officers are required.

  • So don't fall into the trap with these verbal reasoning test questions of answering the

  • questions based on what you know, only answer them based on what is within the passage!

  • The important lesson here is to only answer the question based solely on the information

  • provided, regardless of what you know to be fact.

  • Now, here's the really important tip.

  • To read and fully understand every word of every verbal reasoning test passage, is going

  • to take time, and ultimately, it will eat into the time you have to answer each question.

  • So you're going to be answering these questions based on the strict time conditions.

  • Here's a really useful tip.

  • The majority of people, and I would estimate 95 percent of candidates who undertake verbal

  • reasoning tests, will start off and they will read that whole passage.

  • That's not what you should do.

  • OK.

  • What you should do is scan the passage to locate the word or words that are prominent

  • in the question, and then answer the question that way.

  • So, I would look at this and I would not even read the text.

  • I would look at the question.

  • And it says – “police officers are required to wear a uniform.”

  • I would then pick out the PROMINENT two words, ‘police officersanduniform’.

  • I would then scan the passage to locate those two wordsthere’s POLICE and there's

  • UNIFORM.

  • I would then focus my efforts entirely on that passage.

  • That particular part.

  • And if you see from that, I can answer that question.

  • Police officers are required to wear a uniform.

  • Uniforms are often worn by armed forces and paramilitary organizations.

  • It doesn't say they are REQUIRED to.

  • So, I would answer the question CANNOT SAY - that is a great tip.

  • If you take anything from this tutorial in respect of answering verbal reasoning test

  • questions, take that.

  • That will save you a huge amount of time, because when you are under pressure, you are

  • reading that passage and you will be able to understand it anyway, because you'll be

  • under pressure.

  • Your job is to just pick out the answer from that particular element of the passage.

  • Here's a quick refresher and reminder of what is meant by TRUE, FALSE and CANNOT SAY.

  • This is very important.

  • So please do listen to all three of these, and then I'm going to get you to try some

  • questions yourself to see whether you understand what true, false and cannot say is in the

  • context of verbal reasoning.

  • TRUE.

  • If something is true, it means the statement is true.

  • It is verified by the text.

  • This means the text must explicitly or implicitly mention something which proves the statement

  • to be correct.

  • So in other words, you cannot make any assumptions about the text.

  • There's got to be either direct evidence from the statement or a strong inference to support.

  • So in respect to FALSE, if a statement is false, there must be evidence in the text

  • which contradicts the statement.

  • So for example, if the question statements say, “all swans are white’, but the texts

  • say, “there is such thing as a black swan”, then the statement is FALSE because it is

  • directly contradicted by the text.

  • And in respect of CANNOT SAY, there is not enough evidence in the text or the passage

  • to verify it being true or false, then the correct answer is CANNOT SAY, as we know from

  • the previous question about police officers wearing a uniform.

  • Now it's your turn.

  • I'm going to get you to try some verbal reasoning test questions.

  • So, there are five verbal reasoning test questions that follow.

  • You have 20 seconds to answer each question.

  • There is a timer on the right hand side, a blue timer.

  • I will read the question and the passage once, and then the timer starts to tick down.

  • Please put your answer to each question in the comments section below this video for

  • marking and I’ll come on here each day and mark them for you, to make sure that you fully

  • understand.

  • Here we go.

  • It says: read the following text before answering the questions as either TRUE, FALSE or CANNOT

  • SAY from the information.

  • The five questions are based on this particular passage.

  • I'll read it once, and then I'll show you the five questions.

  • The timer will go down and I'll move on to the next question.

  • It's calledFAMILY HOLIDAYIt says: Janet and Steve have been married for twenty-seven

  • years.

  • They have a daughter called Jessica who is twenty-five-years-old.

  • They all want to go on holiday together but cannot make up their minds on where to go.

  • Janet’s first choice would be somewhere hot and sunny abroad.

  • Her second choice would be somewhere in their home country that involves a sporting activity.

  • She does not like hill-climbing or walking holidays but her third choice would be a skiing

  • holiday.

  • Steve’s first choice would be a walking holiday in the hills somewhere in their home

  • country and his second choice would be a sunny holiday abroad.

  • He does not enjoy skiing.

  • Jessica’s first choice would be a skiing holiday and her second choice would be a sunny

  • holiday abroad.

  • Jessica’s third choice would be a walking holiday in the hills of their home country.

  • So, you can see it's quite confusing.

  • And that's why it's important to not read the text out, but to answer the question.

  • Here we go.

  • Question number one.

  • Jessica's first choice would be a walking holiday in the hills of her home country.

  • Is it TRUE, FALSE or CANNOT SAY, here's your timer.

  • Okay.

  • Question number two: Janet and Jessica have been married for 27 years.

  • A, true, B, false or C, cannot say.

  • Put your answer in the comments section below.

  • Here's a timer.

  • Question number three: Jessica would rather go skiing than go on a sunny holiday abroad.

  • A, true, B, false.

  • C, cannot say.

  • Please put your answer in the comments section below.

  • OK.

  • Well done.

  • Question number four.

  • Janet likes hill climbing.

  • A, true.

  • B, false.

  • C, cannot say.

  • And question number five.

  • Janet and Steve have a daughter who is 27 years old.

  • A, true, B, false.

  • C, cannot say.

  • Put your answer in the comments section below the video, please.

  • Thank you.

  • OK.

  • Well done.

  • So, I'll let you know how you get on, when you put your answer in the comments section

  • below.

  • You see, it's important to answer them based on the text only.

  • They seem really easy, those questions.

  • But I bet you get some of them wrong!

  • Now, the important thing is to read the question; really important.

  • If you want to try some more of these.
