Logic puzzles are designed to test your analytical and reasoning skills. While there can be any number of logic puzzles, they all fall under two basic categories: qualitative reasoning puzzles and quantitative reasoning puzzles. Simply put, the qualitative reasoning puzzles require you to use your skill of finding logic in statements and situations while the quantitative reasoning puzzles are about finding logic in numbers.
