Table Analysis questions present a table similar to a spreadsheet. It can be sorted on any of its columns by selecting the column’s title from a drop-down menu. There may be a brief text explaining the table or providing additional information. The question then presents three phrases, statements, numerical values, or algebraic expressions, and you must indicate for each one whether or not it meets a certain condition.

For example, you may be asked whether

  • Each statement is true (yes or no), according to the information in the table
  • Each statement or numerical value is consistent or inconsistent with the information in the table
  • Each statement or numerical value can or cannot be determined on the basis of the information in the table

In analyzing the table, you may need to, for example,

  • Determine statistics such as mean, median, mode, or range
  • Determine ratios, proportions, or probabilities
  • Identify correlations between two sets of data
  • Compare an entry’s rank in two or more of the table’s categories
