Hey Rajesh, Odd one out is where we will be given a set of sentences in any order and will be asked to punch the corresponding number of the sentence which would not fit in those set of sentences and would not form a logical sense to have it in them. We have to punch in that particular sentence as the answer. Para-jumbles again will be having a set of sentences in no particular order, however we will be asked to punch the correct order in which those sentences should come to form a coherent paragraph. For more on odd one out and para jumbles and their techniques visit paragraph structure lesson under https://www.mockat.com/prepzone/. All the best
What’s the difference between Odd one out and Para jumbles?
Hey Karni, Vocabulary is important for CAT and students who are good at it have a slight edge over the test but that doesn't imply that you have to be excellent at vocabulary. CAT tests logic more than the vocab. But make sure you noting the meaning of the unknown words then and there and try to recall them regularly. This might help you during the test. All the best
Do we need to improve our vocabulary to crack CAT and other MBA Exams?

Thanks for the suggestion. Can you also please tell me how should I select articles for reading? Should I read more abstract articles?
Hi Mahima, reading is very important and will give you an edge over the VARC section, however, it is not sufficient to ace the section. Practice is as important as reading. Keep practicing RCs and non-RC questions regularly. You can start by taking short-timed tests as a warm-up before taking a full-length sectional or mock. You can try our Quiz of the Day at https://www.mockat.com/prepzone/#compete, you'll get 5 Verbal quizzes each week. This will help you enhance your accuracy and speed, and once you gain confidence, you can start taking Mocks and sectionals.
At the same time, please continue with the reading, but you can take it up a notch by finding the Summary or the Author's Point of View (PoV). Use our free Telegram channel for this (https://t.me/crackcatwithiimlgrads). Write your point of view and compare it with the one we are sending and see how you can improve it. Do this as an exercise to improve your comprehension skills. All the best :)
Is reading 1 hour daily, sufficient to ace the VARC section in CAT?
