You have no need to memories all the rule of R.S. Agrawal and even you have no need to draw vein Diagram to solve it, If you follow Time’s CAT materials. There is very simple rule in Time’s materials by which you can solve a syllogism with in 15 sec.

>Figure Series: (5 questions)- This is really very simple. For practice see Agrawal. But don’t waste too much time for it.
>Dice & Cube Problem:(5 questions)- In my apti the prob was like below:
A cube is given and is painted six side with six diff colors.
Red is adjacent of yellow and green.
Pink is opposite of yellow.
Brown is in the bottom face

Now Q:1)Which color is in the top face?
Q:2) Which color in the opposite face of Red?
But there may also come others pattern:
There is a cube and it is cut in 27/64/125 equals pieces of cube. Now two face is colored with black, two green, two red.
Q: No of cube which is painted three faces…No of Uncolored cube…..
Just see 3-5 Example from Agrwal It will come in ur hand.

>Puzzel: (5 questions) – Keep ur head cool for these question. I know puzzle makes everyone puzzeled. Read the question carefully draw the diagram, matrix and put the data one by one according to given information. I am sure that every one can solve it.
