It is important to note that these questions are worth twice as much as any other question on the test. For every scrambled paragraph that is correct, the student is awarded 2 points on their raw score. There is no partial credit, so, all 5 sentences must be arranged in the right manner to receive credit. This is the section most students find difficulty with.

There are specific types of questions in the logical reasoning section such as but not limited to: contrapositive of a conditional statement, deciphering codes and determining positions of objects.
