Can you pls elaborate on the other keywords which can be asked in place of inference and how they can be solved. Just a brief idea. 

Few ideas that I can tell off the top of my head:

  • Attempt the paper with no inherent information in your subconscious. You know nothing. You have to answer based on what has been presented only! ===> This idea alone will help you sail over the threshold marks.


  • Dealing with generalizations: A generalization is simply a fact that you've read for your GS Prelims test. For example- The growth rate of Indian agriculture has been stagnant at around 3%. This is a fact.  However, it would not be true for RC if the statement has not been used in the given passage. 2 out of 3 times, the Commission puts one or more such generalization to trap students. The logic that is to be used to solve RC questions is very different. In certain questions, you will be asked- Which of the assumptions are valid? Which is the most logical message conveyed by the passage?
  1. In such questions, there's a 95% possibility of getting tricked by such generalizations. Unless a statement is drawn from the passage or is an inference/deduction to whatever is discussed in the passage, you do not mark it right no matter how correct it might appear to you. Assumptions are something that you deduce from the passage.
  2. One should also remember that a fact cannot be a deduction! A deduction has to be a very generic statement. 


I think these observations will help tackle the RC. I'll add to these if any other idea occurs to me.
