Introduction

Alphabet is a group of English letters. Alphabet test is a test to solve the problems based on letters of English alphabet.

Some basic facts related to Alphabet Test are given below.

Types of Sequences

TYPE - I

Sequence of Words/Figures

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

Students are required to arrange these words/figures in a logical sequence based on a common property and then choose the correctly graded sequence from the given data.

Example - 1

Arrange the words given below in a meaningful sequence. (From small to big)

1. Elephant

2. Cat

3. Mosquito

4. Tiger

5. Whale

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

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

Ans. (c)

The correct order is:

Example - 2

Arrange the words given below in a meaningful sequence.

1. Leaf

2. Fruit

3. Stem

4. Root

5. Flower

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

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

Ans. (b)

The correct order is:

Example - 3

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

(a) B C E A D                (b) BACED

(c) C A B E D                 (d) B C D E A

Ans. (b)

B A C E D 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.

Directions (Examples 4 & 5): Choose the correct order of letters which are required to from a meaningful word.

Example - 4

 R P E D I 1 2 3 4 5

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

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

Ans. (d)

Here, we have to create the meaningful word and 'R' has been labelled as 1, 'P as 2 , 'E' as 3 , 'D' as 4 and 'I' as 5.

Now, the correct word is PRIDE. So, option (d) is correct.

Example - 5

 T R I F U 1 2 3 4 5

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

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

Ans. (d)

Here, we have to create the meaningful word and T' has been labelled as 1, 'R' as 2, T as 3, 'F' as 4, and TJ' as 5.

Now, the correct word is FRUIT. So, option (d) is correct.
