This section in CLAT 2015 was tougher when compared to the previous years CLAT Papers. The passage based critical reasoning questions were difficult. There were questions on Fact, Inference and Judgement, Data Sufficiency, Coding-Decoding and Blood Relations which were easy to attempt.
There was also 1 question on direction sense, 1 on linear arrangement and 1 on calendars. There were two sets of questions on puzzles, both of which were time-consuming and difficult. A good attempt for this section was around 30 questions.
|Indian Penal Code||9|
|Law of Torts||8|
|Law of Contract||3|
On a general level we could easily divide the legal section into:
20 questions - Principle Fact questions
10 questions- Assertion Reason
20 questions- legal facts & legal G.K questions
Candidates who read the newspaper regularly would find the Legal GK questions easy to attempt. Questions related to reasoning were time consuming but of an easy to moderate difficulty level. Legal Fact questions were fairly direct in nature. Average attempt of 40+ questions was good for anybody who had a good understanding of the fundamentals of the constitution, legal principles, and the current legal affairs.
