### Bank PO Preparation Tips for Data Interpretation

#### Elimination Through Visual Approximation

When it comes to bar graphs and line charts, you may rely on visual approximation. When you start calculating, you should try to rule out a few possibilities based on visual cues. By just glancing at the pie graph or line graph, several of the alternatives presented in the question can be quickly ruled out.

Typically, you are left with only a few alternatives from which to choose the best one. So, to save time, make a comprehensive computation for these two choices.

#### Get to Know All of The Different Sorts of DI Questions

You’ll notice that there are several types/ formats of DI questions as you practise. For instance, pie charts, line graphs, bar graphs, and charts. You will acquire confidence in solving all sorts of questions in the IBPS PO and Clerk exams if you become familiar with all forms of DI questions.

#### Interpret the Data before Calculating

Do not start addressing problems without first reading and interpreting the facts. Make sure you don’t miss any of the statements in the question. Keep in mind that banks like to select candidates who are skilled and at ease with statistics.

#### Answer the Questions in the Following Order

The answer to the first question is frequently found to be helpful in resolving the second. As a result, it’s best to answer the questions in the order they occur.

Also, if you make an error figuring the first question, you’ll almost certainly make a mistake figuring the next ones. As a result, double-check your responses.

#### Don’t Practice with Calculators

You are not permitted to use a calculator during the exam. As a result, you will get into the habit of visually calculating percentage increases and decreases in your regular practise. Rather than looking for precise values, attempt approximations to achieve the nearest result. This will steadily raise your speed till you sit the test.

#### Conclusion

You must be cautious when reading data from the correct location. It’s quite simple to copy data from the wrong chart, graph, or column while gathering data from a graph, table, or chart.

To prevent making dumb mistakes while copying numbers, tip your thumb to the data you want, then position it immediately opposite the question and keep it there until you’re confident you’re looking at the proper section of the right graph.

It is preferable to read twice and then compute once. The majority of errors are caused by incorrect data rather than computations. Various units are sometimes used to mislead you. As a result, don’t copy hastily.
