Hi.

For starters, you could share your doubts with us. Following the past year papers is a sure-shot way of being prepared for what may come. AILET generally has a higher standard compared to CLAT. The next step for you to zero in on your problem and rectify it would be to post the questions on the forum, and discuss it with others.

Thanks Aditya.I have solved past year questions of AILET but they are not sufficient enough for practicing.and I  have solved from MK pandey also.now the same questions appears everywhere. I don't get new kind of questions anywhere.

Hi. So do you want more questions or can you not solve a particular kind of question? In both cases, please post them as a discussion so that I can help you understand where you've been making mistakes or I can alternatively suggest more materials to practise from.

Please do not fret over it, it is likely to be a very small part of the whole exam. Keep practicing everything else!

I want more such questions for practice.I would be great if you could tell the source from where I could get the material for practice. Actually  such questions are very time consuming and I am not able to complete it on time,so I want to make myself comfortable for particular type of questions so that I can solve it on time.

What type of questions exactly? Give an example.

The type of questions which comes in NLUD. you might have seen the past year papers of NLUD. The conditional type puzzle questions in reasoning section.

Conditional - puzzle - reasoning brings three types to mind rather than one. :P 

Just post one as a discussion?

Haven't you gone through the past year papers of NLUD.? If not,then I will post an example.

Not for the past one year, I haven't. It's not striking my mind. Just post one for the benefit of the community members. :)
