The most difficult and time-consuming section in the verbal aptitude test. It has a set of jumbled sentences that must be rearranged in order to have a proper meaning.

These questions assess your ability to comprehend the larger picture presented in a sequence of sentences. One or more fixed sentences may be presented to you and you will be asked to rearrange them all.

When more than one sentence fits precisely, it can be more difficult. In this scenario, you must rely on the vocabulary and context to choose the most appropriate answer. 


Sentence Re-arrangement, sometimes known as Jumbled Sentences, is a test for arranging jumbled sentences in sequential and logical order. Your grammar skills are put to the test by providing a set of puzzling sentences or words that must be organized correctly to make sense of a sentence. This verbal aptitude section is the most complex and time-consuming. 


These questions assess your ability to comprehend the larger picture presented in a series of sentences.  

How to identify the test? 

The test will have one or more fixed sentences, and you are asked to rearrange them altogether. It can be more challenging when more than one sentence fits perfectly. In this situation, you must choose the best answer based on the vocabulary and context

Things to remember when solving jumbled words questions: 
Always read the question (every sentence carefully) and try to grasp the context and the overall concept, concentrate on the meaning of the passage, and then form a sequence.

Identify the Opening Sentence  

Understand the theme of the passage. Identifying the first sentence becomes simple when you have the subject, or the main point sorted out. The theme can be found by looking for the whole word(s) connected to each sentence. 


  • Assuming a sentence begins with a 'name' of an individual, that sentence will be the first sentence in the section. 
  • If an article is at the beginning of a statement, the likelihood of that sentence being the first 
  • If a sentence begins with a pronoun other than 'You' or 'I,' it will very certainly not be the first sentence in the piece. 
  • If a sentence begins with the phrases 'That,' 'These,' 'Consequently,' and 'Those,' it will almost probably not be the first sentence in the passage

Identify the Closing Sentence 
Assume that a sentence starts with the words Hence, Finally, or Therefore, then the sentence is towards the end of the passage. 

Detecting the linking words, such as but, however, hence, therefore, likewise, similarly, also, etc. These linking words can be located at the beginning or end of the sentences related to one another. Articles, modifiers, relational terms, conjunctions, and any other word that can add to the topic's knowledge can help you understand the correct order of the sentence. 

Identify transition words such as however, likewise, generally, simultaneously, etc. These words represent the transition from one thought to the next in a sentence and can thus assist you in determining the proper sequence. 

Practice pattern recognition by solving as many questions as possible. You will be able to solve even  the most difficult questions in less time if you practice recognizing patterns between jumbled sentences and words. 

Learn to recognize pronoun antecedents by analyzing the types of words that are commonly used before a pronoun, be it relative (who, whom, which, whose, etc.), demonstrative (these, that, this, those, etc.), or personal (he, she, I, it, they, etc.). 

Recognize the link between sentences 

Words like 'then,' 'so,' 'now,' 'afterward,' 'finally,' and other sentence linking words help understand the sequence of events. 

Learn some popular English root words that can assist you in guessing the correct sentence by understanding the words and corresponding meanings. 

Look for prefixes such as RE or ING. You may quickly form and extend the word with the help of these. 

The easiest method is to change the tense or pluralize the word.

We should just read each of the given sentences and understand the general idea driving it. When we get it, the rest of the test turns out to be much more normal. 

Jumbled Sentences Examplesː

Rearrange the following jumbled statements.

important/activities / studies / are as / as Activities are as important as studies.
complimented / he / be / to / likes. He likes to be complimented. 
breakfast/what/is/for/today? What is for breakfast today?
