The objective of the present study was to compare problem solving ability of elite and sub-elite players. To conduct the study, 50 elite male players from various sports (Ave. age 26.50 years) were selected as sample. The selection of elite male players were done from only those sportspersons who took part in national level individual and team events as well as who came in first four positions in these event. To fulfil the objectives of the study, 50 intercollegiate male sportspersons (Average age 21.09 years) from various sports events were also selected as sample and termed as sub-elite players. Purposive sampling was used for selection of subjects.
