  • In jumbled sentences, the sentences are not supplied in proper arranged manner.
  • The sentences are jumbled up, made complex so as to make the students confused.
  • There is not any set rule to work out these problems, but only practice.
  • You have to be aware of the sense indicated in the jumbled phrases and parts of sentence so as to make out their correct meaning.

 

 

 

  • However, although, since the time, in context to, prior to, etc. are terms that help to link sentences.
  • Look out for quick clues, such as pronouns, conjunction, etc. in the beginning of sentences to help you establish a sequence. v In choices that are closely related, identify a mandatory pair of sentences (two sentences that should form a sequence).

 

 

 

 

  • It is essential that you look at the jumbled phrases, comprehend the meaning implied and put the sentence in order.
  • Be cool, have patience and work out correctly.
  • Avoid reading the sentences closely as it will be a waste of time.
  • Inspect the choices; if each of the choices begins with different letters, identifying the sentence to begin the sequence leads to the correct answer.
  • In four sentences variety, work backward from sentence 4 if there is no obvious clue to work from sentence 1; many a time we overlook the hints that may be available.
