Process for all CR questions

Step 1: Identify the question.

Step 2: Deconstruct the argument.

Step 3: State the Goal.

Step 4: Work from wrong to right.

The Critical Reasoning Challenge

Do you like to point out the assumptions in others' arguments? Do you like to home in on logical flaws like a detective, and analyze precisely how arguments could be made better, or worse? Then CAT Critical Reasoning is for you. So start dissecting op-ed pieces and cutting the contestants on television debates down to size. When you see your CAT score, you'll be glad you did!

Which of the following can be most properly inferred from the passage above?

(A) Mastering the Critical Reasoning question type will ensure an excellent CAT score.
(B) No question type contained on the CAT is represented in more sections of the CAT than is Critical Reasoning.
(C) Op-ed pieces and television debates contain content that is related in some way to material tested in CAT Critical Reasoning.
(D) Logical flaws and assumptions are question types that appear only on the CAT.
(E) Thinking like a detective has no impact on one's CAT score.

Explanation: Choice (C) is correct. The final two sentences strongly imply that dissecting op-eds and debates will lead to a higher score, which, in fact, it certainly can. There must therefore be some relation between CAT content and the content of these forums. As for the others: Mastering Critical Reasoning is necessary to achieve a top CAT score, but is not sufficient; one must ace the other content areas of the test as well. So (A) is not inferable. There's no basis for (B) either—the number of sections on the test is outside the scope of the argument. (D) isn't inferable.

For all we know, other tests such as the NTSE test these same areas. And (E) represents the opposite of what the passage suggests: The instructor strongly implies that the proclivity for playing detective is relevant to (hence, inferably bodes well for) one's Critical Reasoning performance.

So win arguments! Prove people wrong! Amaze your friends! Be the life of the party! Get 100 in the CAT! ... Just a few of the many and varied uses of the ability to master the subtle art of Critical Reasoning.

Disclaimer: Hacking through the bogus arguments of others and/or demonstrating superior logical acumen in everyday conversation will NOT make you the most popular person in town. However, the ability to do so will do wonders for your CAT score. The purpose of this section is to help you hone your critical thinking skills through practice on some of the toughest Critical Reasoning material around.
It is very important topic for the ones who are preparing for the CAT like exams because critical reasoning problems seem to be very difficult and time consuming. I want to add a document where you will find some great tactics for solving these critical problems.
