      Suggestions for improving Verbal Ability:

      1. Increase your vocabulary.( http://www.vocabulary.com)
      2. Try to go through the Basic Grammar Books like Wren & Martin and read basic topics like tenses, subject-verb agreement etc.
      3. For Solving the Reading comprehension and Paragraph Jumbles, you need to have knowledge of different areas.

      Practice as much as you can. It will take some time to improve the verbal ability section.
