About the test

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.

When writing an argumentative essay, it's very important to establish credibility with the audience. Providing inaccurate or false information is a surefire way to lose credibility with the reader. Once the essay’s credibility is lost, the reader will be less likely to believe other statements even if they are backed up by facts.

Newspaper Excerpts

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.
