Tips and Ticks to solve Match the Column type Questions
In 'Match the column' questions, candidates need to join two parts of a sentence in a way that they form a meaningful and grammatically correct sentence. Two columns are provided in the question. In this, three/four incomplete sentences are given in both the columns. The first column consists of the first half of these sentences and the second column consists of the second half of these sentences. Students are required to match both the columns in a way that all the sentences are connected properly in a meaningful way.
Go through the following tips and tricks to solve questions faster -
1. Read the instruction/direction of the questions properly.
2. Go through both the columns one by one and try to find connectors of the sentences.
3. Connect the sentences by understanding the context of the sentences.
4. Eliminate the pairs immediately which cannot be matched anyhow.
