The Verbal Reasoning test assesses candidates' ability to comprehend and reason about written communication in English.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. Office-based jobs that require a great deal of written communication and a high level of verbal ability. Tasks such as reading and understanding emails, reports, and other written communication. An accurate understanding is more important than ever, as changes in the modern workplace, often with team members scattered across the world, can cause clarification loops that take days to complete.

This test requires candidates to read text and answer questions about it, such as selecting which claims are true or false based on the text or which statement most effectively summarizes the whole text.

Carefully read the following excerpt from an article on marketing and branding:

Without a robust core idea on which to build, even the most creative and well-targeted advertising won’t boost a brand’s value. Good marketing plays a major role in motivating sales and consumer love by expressing what a brand stands for. But it can have a powerful multiplier effect if the core idea around the brand, i.e. its proposition, is strong, genuine and meaningful to the target audience. Advertising alone struggles to deliver value if the brand proposition is not clear and meaningful. A strong proposition, however, stands pretty well on its own. In a study, the value of the brands that focused on this rose 76% over the 10 years, even where they didn’t have excellent advertising. Good performance no longer helps a brand command a premium or keep customers returning. When people need a clear reason to choose one product or service over the next, being different becomes more important. A point of difference can be found in product functionality, but also in the brand experience and communications. Even the best communication is, by itself, often insufficient.

Carefully read the following excerpt from an article on paper production:

With the recovery rate of used paper for recycling approaching 70 percent in the United States and Europe, and approaching 80 percent in Japan, to keep up with our demand for paper we need to continue using fresh fiber as well as recycled, according to the premise set forward in a new report by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).

Detailing the reasons why fresh fiber combined with recycled is important for a single integrated wood fiber system, the report examines the “complementarity” of using both and discusses the functions of different types of fibers and the issues related to both recycling old fiber and sourcing fresh fiber. In 2012, 400 million tons of paper and paperboard were produced and consumed globally, which is double that in 1985, notes the report. As the population continues to expand and standards of living increase, this number is expected to climb by another 40 percent by 2028. While many would advocate for cutting down on paper use in the first place, in the face of global demand the most sustainable fiber may have to be the next best thing. But therein lies the rub: finding adequate quantities of said fiber will be the challenge of the global pulp and paper industry.
