    DILR section is a very tricky section nowadays in CAT. How do we improve our performance in them.

    Post Data Interpretation and logical reasoning

    Hi Vaibhav,

    DILR is one of the most evolving topics of CAT. Gone are the days when they used to ask you how much percentage 13 is of (45*6). Then you were supposed to know your tables and solve the Q. (u never know they may come back with those kind of questions)
    From 2005 you would see a discerning trend in CAT that the questions on logic started coming more and more. It caught its peek in 2006 where the Erdos number question was a complete Googgly!!! i can't think of a better word than that.

    Even if you remember the Olympic question in CAT 05 i think that was even tougher than the Erdos question. I would say CAT 2005 was a landmark CAT where it started shedding its old image and took on a new garb.

    The way to tackle DILR is to become familiar with numbers and logic. For logic you need to start doing some mental exercise. Solve as many puzzles as you can. CAT would not ask you lateral thinking puzzles. But its a good exercise as you need to take puzzle/logic solving as a hobby rather than taking it as a curriculum.

    Am i getting to boring and sounding like a professor. but believe me, you can excel in something only when you start enjoying it.

    Bhaskar

    In DI-LR Tables is the most important topic,
    In CAT 07 there were 4 set of questions on tables.

    CAT 06 has DI section tougher as compared to other sections
    CAT 07 had QA section tougher as compared to other sections

    So this year it might be VA section.

    I dont think it follows logically. 1st stmnt says ONLY cactus are found in desert which means nothin else bu cactus is found in desert. Which means cactus is also found elsewhere. So 3rd stmnt doesnt follow logically as we cant say for sure that camels are found in desert.

    The explanation looks correct to me. But i wonder if it is the actual answer. No one seems to be posting the answer

    I think Vibhs's answer is correct.
    The statement would have followed logically if the first statement would have been Cactus are found ONLY in desert

    excatly! The word 'ONLY' changes the whole meaning depending on where it is placed. Only cactus as used in the question gives our Vibha's answer. The statement would have followed logically if the sentence was Cactus are found ONLY in desert
