Numerical reasoning tests your decision-making ability based on the statistics given. You will have to make data-driven decisions and solve problems using numerical reasoning. Data interpretation is analysing and viewing the data in any particular way to reach any conclusion. Numerical Reasoning and Data Interpretation, etc. are important topics covered in the GA (General Aptitude) section of the GATE exam. Some of the prominent papers that ask Numerical Reasoning and Data Interpretation, etc. GATE questions are GATE CS, GATE CE, GATE ME, GATE MT, GATE EE, etc.

You need to interpret the Numerical Reasoning & Data Interpretation questions asked in the form of tables, graphs, etc. The GA section of the GATE exam also judges the logical thinking ability of the applicants. Read on to know more about Numerical Reasoning, Data Interpretation, etc. for GATE.

## Important Numerical Reasoning & Data Interpretation Topics for GATE CE

 Topic Explanation Logical Inference You will have to come to a conclusion based on the evidence provided. An example of a logical inference question for GATE is: Clock Based Questions You can be asked numerical ability questions based on the various hands of a clock i.e. minute, hour, and second. Modulo Problems Modulo operator is used for returning the signed/unsigned remainder after a division. You can be asked problems based on the Modulo operator under data interpretation questions of the GATE exam. Graphical Interpretation The information will be given to you in the GATE exam in the form of a graph. You can encounter various graphs in the GATE exam like a pie chart, bar graph, mixed graph, radar graph, etc. You will have to interpret the information and jump to a conclusion.
