# Arithmetic aptitude / Numerical reasoning tests for online practice

The numerical reasoning, also known as arithmetical aptitude / reasoning or quantitative reasoning, is one’s ability to reason with numbers and important mathematical concepts. A person with a higher numerical reasoning ability is better equipped to work in positions that require number sense. So, it is not a surprise that the numerical reasoning questions commonly appear in any placement tests, competitive exams or entrance exams. These tests are also useful for preparing for the Assessment of Competence-Technology (NAC-Tech) tests, conducted by NASSCOM, if you want to join major IT companies such as TCS, Cognizant, Wipro, Accenture and HCL among others.
