Syllogism is often confusing and takes time to solve unless one keeps a cool head. Practicing questions from the syllogism model will make the candidate prepared to attempt the question irrespective of the difficulty level.

Taking mock tests and practicing previous year's questions help you to get an idea of how the question could be asked and come up with different procedures to solve it.
