Scientific Guessing Techniques to be Successful by Reading Less


Dear Candidates, Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) check your Knowledge and test rationality as well. Very few people know this fact. This is why many candidates make the very simple question wrong. We try to explain this fact with a simple example.

Read the following question-

India's capital is-

(A) Delhi   (B) New Delhi   (C) Kolkata   (D) Chennai

Can there be a simple question from this question, and do you think that if one lakh candidates are sitting in the exam, then all that 100% of the candidates will solve this question.

No, not at all.

Take the example of a little more difficult question.

'Protection of the environment will be practiced, not of the citizen but of the state', the above statement is related to which of the following article -

    (A) 39-A     (B) 43-A     (C) 48-A     (D) 51-A

Now you will be able to better understand that the questions of multi-option type test your knowledge as well as rationality. Let me tell here that the correct answer of the above question is (C) 48-A.

In fact, many times your knowledge is not, but your 'humane error' only puts you out of the examination. This article is basically about the technique of solving those questions on which candidates are gassed.

Keep in mind that the rules outlined in it are not absolute rules, but they have been seen to be fairly realistic on the rules of logic and probability. This article lesson saves you from the humane errors and also tells the method of solving paper with logical and scientific method.

Observe this article carefully and learn how to use the best of what is said. I believe with full confidence that even if you are an average candidate, you will still be successful in this examination.

Let's start ...

Choosing the answer to the shortest or longest option is better.

See the following examples-

E-Biz ' is concerned with whom?
(A) Electronic Commerce
(B) Single window financial transactions
(C) Single window for business inquiries
(D) Single window for approach to government services
Ans. D

It is quite clear from this question that came in UPPCS 2016.

Select the option to break a special order (English or Hindi order)

See the following examples-

Divergent Thinking does not have any of the following characteristics:
(A) Spontaneous                        (B) Free-flowing
(C) Non-linear                          (D) Accuracy

The answer to the question is D and you can see that the other three options have a 'logical similarity' whereas D is breaking the sequence of similarity.

If two options are exactly the opposite, then look for answers in those two options.


See the following examples-

Which of the following is in relation to the President of India, statement is correct
 (A) The position of President in India is like a rubber stamp
(B) The position of President in India is not like a rubber stamp
(C) President of India can become dictator
(D) None of the above

The opposite option questions are generally closed-ended questions. Closed-ended questions are those that can be easily answered by "yes" or "no".

Choose your answer in mid-options in the case of sorted options

See the following examples-

The time of zero hour in Parliament is:
 (A) From 10 A.M. to 11 P.M (B) from 11 A.M. to 12 P.M.
(C) From 12 to 1.00 P.M. (D) from 1.00 to 2.00 P.M.

The answer to the question is C. If there is doubt in choosing B and C, then the answer will definitely be D.

If the answer to the options is numerical, then remove the maximum values.

See the following examples-

In the 2011 census, how much was the percentage of urban population in India's total population?
(A) 25%     (B) 30%     (C) 35%     (D) 40%

The answer to the question is B. And the frequency of the rule can be seen clearly from the above question in NET 2016 in the question paper 'Population Studies'.

Do not do much analysis in the situation, if do not know the correct answer.

See the following examples- (NET-Dec. 2015)

Which of the following pollutants can cause cancer in humans?
(1) Pesticides     (2) Mercury      (3) Lead      (4) Ozone

Our common sense is saying that from childhood we have heard that insecticides are harmful to health, whether it be cancerous or not. At what age did you hear for the first time that mercury, lead and ozone are harmful? The answer to the question is (A).

When you have questions, find the answer by making a brainstorming relationship with one of the first responses to brain and one of the four options.

See the following examples-

Which of the following is an instant messaging app?
(1) Whatsapp (2) Google Talk (3) Viber
Select the correct answer from the code below:
(A) (1) and (2) (B) (2) and (3)
(C) Only (1) (D) (1), (2) and (3)

At the first sight, after reading the question that comes in NET Dec 2015, it seems that it is all three. Do not do much analysis on such questions.

Do not seek answers directly after reading the questions, but try to memorize the related information.

See the following examples (NET June 2014)

Which of the following is considered a sign of motivated learning?
(A) Asking the question of students    (B) Maximum attendance of students
(C) Pin drop silence in classroom    (D) Making notes of students

Motivated learning is a keyword, as soon as we read that, some thoughts come in our brain easily. In motivated teaching, students remain comfortable towards the teacher. They are not scared. They are excited to ask questions. Based on these things, there should be the answer (A) that is in the brain.

By reading the question or the keyword of the question, the option that matches the visual picture created in your brain is the best answer.

See the following examples (NET June 2014)

 The research stream of immediate application is
(A) Conceptual research                                (B) Action research
(C) Fundamental research                             (D) Empirical research


The mental picture of instant use connects us directly to the action so that is the correct answer.

Connect the demand of the question to the list of anytime, heard, read or seen information. The logical connection to which option will be the right choice.

See the following example - (NET Dec 2013)

The power of the Supreme Court of India falls under it to decide the disputes between two or more states.
(A) Advisory jurisdiction                    (B) Appeal jurisdiction
(C) Original jurisdiction                     (D) Article jurisdiction

Though the courts perform many functions, but their basic work is to settle disputes, so it should be their original jurisdiction. The logical answer is obviously   (C).

Elect to change the answer on a logical basis rather than on an emotional basis.

See the following example - (NET Dec 2013)

Post-industrial society has been nominated-
(A) Information Society                     (B) Technology Society
(C) Arbitrator society                         (D) Non-agricultural society

You may be in doubt about the options (A) and (B) of this question, but if you look carefully, today's technical sphere is being given more attention to the information technology. So, after choosing option A, do not go to option B without solid reasoning. Avoid Second Guess.

Live the life you truly deserve!
