Intelligence has been defined as “innate ability” to solve problems. Innate ability is which is present in a person from birth.
Verbal reasoning is a collection of problems, which are required to be solved within the specific time limit.
There are various different types of Verbal Reasoning:
In this article we will be discussing assertion and reason.
A simple statement
Reason is the explanation for the assertion.
Study the two statements labelled as Assertion (A) and Reason (R).Point out if:
Let us look at an example:
First we will check if the assertion is true or not.
In this case the assertion is true.
Now we will check if reason is true or false.
In this case the reason is false, as Seeds are treated with fungicide before sowing to avoid seed borne disease. But, it is not a true fact that unless seeds are treated with fungicide solution, they cannot germinate. Hence, option(c) is true.
Let us look at one more example:
Again we will follow the above given steps.
Check if assertion is true, and then check if reason is true.
Thus it is clear that; appendix is a vestigial organ in the human body and does not participate in digestion. Hence assertion and reason are correct and given reason fully explains given assertion. Hence, option (a) is our answer.
