INTRODUCTION

A sequence is a set of related events, movements, or items that follow each::her in a particular order.

 

 

 

TYPES OF SEQUENCE

 

 

TYPE - I: SEQUENCE OF WORDS

 

 

In this particular type of problem, certain interrelated words are given and numbered, followed by various sequences of the numbers denoting them, as alternatives.

 

Students are required to arrange these words in a logical sequence based on a common property and then

Choose the correctly graded sequence from the given data.

 

Examples:

 

1.            Arrange the words given below in a meaningful sequence.

1. Key       2. Door      3. Lock     

4. Room     5. Switch on

(a) 5, 1, 2, 4, 3                           (b) 4, 2, 1, 5, 3   

(c) 1, 3, 2, 4, 5                                       (d) 1, 2, 3, 5, 4

 

Ans.     (c)

Explanation:

The correct order is:

 

 

2.            Arrange the given words in a meaningful sequence.

1. Skull      2. Shoulder    3. Neck    

 4. Face     5. Legs

(a) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5                           (b) 1, 4, 3, 2, 5   

(c) 1, 3, 4, 2, 5                                       (d) 1, 4, 2, 3, 5

 

Ans.     (b) The meaningful sequence is

 

 

3.            Arrange the given words in a meaningful sequence.

1. Animal                                  2. Cow      

3. Grass                                     4. Mammal

5. Milk

(a) 4, 1, 2, 5, 3                           (b) 1, 4, 2, 5, 3   

(c) 1, 4, 2, 3, 5                                       (d) 4, 1, 2, 3, 5

 

Ans.     (c) The meaningful sequence is:

 

 

 

4.            Arrange the given pictures in the proper sequence by using their alphabets.

 

 

(a) ABCD                      (b) DCBA     

(c) BCAD                       (d) CBDA

 

Ans.     (d) CBDA is the proper sequence

 

 

 

TYPE - II: FORMATION OF WORDS

 

 

In these type of questions, certain words are given and students are required to observe them in order as they are asked to do.

 

Examples:

 

1.            V A R S T E  Choose the correct order of letters which are required to 123456 form the correct word.

(a) 2, 3, 1, 6, 4, 5                       (b) 3, 2, 4, 5, 6, 1

(c) 4, 5, 2, 3, 1, 6                       (d) 6, 3, 4, 5, 2, 1

 

Ans.     (c)

Explanation: Here, we've to create the correct word and 'V has been labelled as 1, 'A' as 2, 'R5 as 3, 'S' as 4, 'T' as 5 and 'E' as 6.

On observing, we can see the correct word is STARVE. So, option (c) is correct.

 

 

2.            In the following question, a group of letters is given which are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Below are given four alternatives containing combinations of these numbers. Select that combination of numbers so that letters arranged accordingly, form a meaningful word.

 

R       

U       

S       

G      

A

1       

2       

3       

4       

5

(a) 1, 5, 4, 2, 3                           (b) 5, 3, 4, 1, 2   

(c) 3, 2, 4, 5, 1                           (d) 4, 5, 3, 2, 1

 

Ans.     (c)

Explanation: On observing, we can see the correct word is SUGAR. So, option (c) is correct.
