Another type of test in the Civil Service exam that will test your verbal ability is the Paragraph Organization. Just like reading comprehension, this one too is really time consuming because it is about arranging a set of sentences or phrases in chronological order in order to form a paragraph or story that make sens. Hence, it is named Paragraph Organization.

Civil Service Reviewer for Paragraph Organization

Paragraph Organization Techniques:

1. Determine the topic sentence/introduction. It usually contains the main idea or the main topic.
2. Next find the supporting sentences that support that topic sentence;
3. Then look for the concluding sentence or the closing sentence. It is usually the final thought or conclusion and marks the end of the article, paragraph or story.
