Direct method: You may also call it "The Conventional Method" of solving questions. We can solve the question based on the information given by applying the formula.
Substitution method: This method is useful in solving problems related to algebra. A few values in the question given can be swapped with the other values to get the answer.
'Elimination' method: This is considered to be the most effective one as far as apitude questions are concerned. Options give some inkling of the answer and through expertise gained by regular practice you can easily tackle the questions.
