11 Plus Verbal Reasoning

Type Z - Comprehension

This type of question differs from all the other types in that you are given a lot of written information which you need to interpret and analise to find the answer.

There is no set format or structure to these questions although they usually involve multiple people/animals/objects, values/amounts and time.

A good strategy for these questions is to transfer the written information into a visual form, like a timeline, table or chart. This makes it easier to understand and compare the data.
