Its a very important part for students with Urdu medium background. Try to prepare this part in natural way. I want to say that you should try to read maximum essays, short stories and novels of English literature. There is no need of memorizing the dictionary. You should also read the basics of English grammar only for academic study.
Analytical Reasoning Section
Generally scenario based and statement based questions are asked in analytical reasoning section. This sections will test your common sense and IQ level. Book worms can not clear this portion easily. You will have to learn the art of out of the box thinking for getting good marks in this portion. Analytical questions are asked just to test the analytical skills of students. Student’s ability to analyze a given situation, scenario or statement is measured through such questions. Students are given some unusual scenarios, statements or a situations in a form of a paragraph, tables or set of facts and they are asked question about various aspects of them to test their analytical reasoning ability.
