# Logical Sequence of Words - Types and Problems with Solutions

*NEW*

As you know, students have to solve Logical sequence questions by logically in the competitive exams but some students don't understand how to solve these type of questions. So, here I am sharing important questions of the logical sequence of words with its types and problems with solutions.

You can easily understand various types of the logical sequence of words with its problems examples with solutions. So, continue your practice with these types, problems and solutions and practice also with questions.

## Types and Problems of Logical Sequence of Words

### Definition of Logical Sequence of Word:

In these type of questions, certain inter-related words are given and numbered, followed by various sequences of the numbers denoting them, as alternatives. The candidate is required to arrange these words in a logical sequence based on common property and then choose the correctly graded sequences from the given alternatives.

Some common sequences have been discussed below:

### I. Sequences of occurrence of events or various stages in a process:

**Example 1. Arrange the following in a meaningful sequence:**

**1. Consolation 2. Illness 3. Doctor 4. Treatment 5. Recovery**

(A) 2, 3, 1, 4, 5

(B) 2, 3, 4, 1, 5

(C) 4, 3, 1, 2, 5

(D) 5, 1, 4, 3, 2

**Solution.**

Clearly, illness occurs first. One then goes to a doctor and after consultation with him, undergoes treatment to finally attain recovery.

Thus, the correct order is 2, 3,1, 4, 5. Hence, the answer is (a)

**Example 2. Arrange the following in a logical **

**1. Birth 2. Death 3. Funeral 4. Marriage 5. Education**

(A) 1, 3, 4, 5, 2

(B) 1, 5, 4, 2, 3

(C) 2, 3, 4, 5, 1

(D) 4, 5, 3, 1, 2

**Solution **

Clearly, the given words when arranged in the order of various events as they occur in a man’s life, form the sequence: Birth, Education, Marriage, Death, Funeral.

So the correct order becomes 1, 5, 4, 2, 3. Hence, the answer is (b).

### II. Sequence of objects in class or group, form part to the whole:

**Example 1. Arrange the following in a meaningful order, from particular to general:**

**1. Family 2. Community 3. Member 4. Locality 5. Country**

(A) 3, 1, 2, 4, 5

(B) 3, 1, 2, 5, 4

(C) 3, 1, 4, 2, 5

(D) 3, 1, 4, 5, 2

**Solution **

Clearly, a member is a part of a family, which in turn is a part of community. The community lives in a locality which lies within a country. Thus, the correct order is 3,1,2,4,5. Hence, the answer is (a).

**Example 2. Arrange the following in a logical order:**

**1. Shoulder 2. Wrist 3. Elbow 4. Palm 5. Finger **

(A) 2, 4, 5, 3, 1

(B) 3, 1, 4, 2, 5

(C) 3, 4, 5, 2, 1

(D) 5, 4, 2, 3, 1

**Solution **

Clearly, we are given the names of parts of a hand, which may be arranged

(i) from top to bottom, i.e, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Palm, Finger, which is 1,3,2,4, or

(ii) from bottom to top, i.e, Finger, Palm, Wrist, Elbow, Shoulder, which is 5, 4, 2, 3, 1.

Out of these, the sequence 5, 4, 2, 3, 1 is given in the alternative provided. Hence, the answer is (d).

### III. Sequence of increasing/decreasing size, value, intensity, etc:

**Example 1. Arrange the following in a logical sequence from small to big: **

**1. Bungalow 2. Flat 3. Cottage 4. House 5. Palace 6. Mansion**

(A) 3, 2, 1, 6, 5

(B) 3, 2, 4, 1, 5, 6

(C) 3, 2, 4, 1, 6, 5

(D) 5, 6, 4, 1, 2, 3

**Solution.**

Clearly, the names of various dwelling units when arranged in increasing order of their sizes, form the sequence : Cottage, Flat, House, Bungalow, Mansion, Palace. Thus, the correct order is 3, 2, 4, 1, 6, 5. Hence, the answer is (C).

**Example 2. Arrange the following in a logical order :**

**1. Gold 2. Iron 3. Sand 4. Platinum 5. Diamond.**

(A) 2, 4, 3, 5, 1

(B) 3, 2, 1, 5, 4.

(C) 4, 5, 1, 3, 2

(D) 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

**Solution **

Clearly, the given names when arranged in order of increasing values, i.e, from cheapest to the most expensive, form the sequence: Sand, Iron, Gold, Diamond, Platinum. Thus, the correct answer is 3, 2, 1, 5, 4. Hence, the answer is (b).

### IV. Sequence in which a chain of given objects is formed:

**Example 1. Arrange the following in a meaningful sequence :**

**1. Phrase 2. Letter 3. Word 4. Sentence **

(A) 1, 2, 3, 4

(B) 1, 3, 2, 4

(C) 2, 3, 1, 4

(D) 2, 3, 4, 1

**Solution **

A group of letters makes a word. A group of words makes a phrase. A group of phrases makes a sentence. Thus, the correct order is 2, 3, 1, 4. Hence, the answer is (C).

**Example 2. Arrange the following in a logical order:**

**1. Frog 2. Eagle 3. Grasshopper 4. Snake 5. Grass**

(A) 1, 3, 5, 2, 4

(B) 3, 4, 2, 5, 1

(C) 5, 3, 1, 4, 2

(D) 5, 3, 4, 2, 1

**Solution **

Clearly, a grasshopper feeds on grass, a frog feeds on grasshopper, a snakes feeds on frog and an eagle feeds on a snake. Thus, a food – chain is formed. So, the correct order is 5, 3, 1, 4, 2. Hence, the answer is (C)
