**How to solve Missing Data Interpretation Questions**

Understanding the various conditions of the **Missing** **DI table** is very important. Try to **find a relation between data in missing D.I** on the basis of condition. To make the **chapter easy for you all,** we are sharing with you important short tricks and tips to solve **Missing Table Questions in DI**. Here we are explaining two types of Missing D.I questions with a detailed explanation.

The first thing to keep in mind is that you don’t need to have studied mathematics at a high level to perform well on questions involving data interpretation. The ability is in analyzing the facts, extrapolating them into a mathematical answer, and then maybe using that response to reach a conclusion.

Scan the information after starting with the data. What does the title say? What do the axes or the keys represent? Make a mental note of whether anything is a number, an age, or some other kind of data; but, don’t spend too much time thinking about information that could be unimportant.

Reading the question on its whole will help you determine which specific data is needed (e.g. March and April, not any other months). It’s not like in school where how you solved a problem is valued. An incorrect response is an incorrect response for the numerical reasoning test.
