Tips for solving classification questions

  • Quite a bit of general knowledge is involved in classification type questions.
  • Questions that contain pictures and objects often only involve observation.
  • Check the options for more than one correct answer, some answers are more valid than others.
  • If there is another correct answer avoid it if it is too broad or narrow in scope.
  • Broad scope example: Avoid creating a class out of green things in a situation where there are only two classes examined, fruits and vegetables.
  • Narrow scope example: Continuing the above example, avoid creating a scientific names class, in case there exists such a similarity/difference among the items.
