(Popil, 2011) Critical thinking is all about making choices and it analytical, judgmental, and selective in nature on the other creative thinking is thinning creative and listing fresh ideas evolved in mind and it is non-judgmental, generative, and expensive in nature. The mind is free if you are adopted creative thinking but in case of critical thinking mind is restricted to the specific situation and problem solving thinking is focus on the particular situation. Problem solving is the mental process that includes recognizing, analyzing and solving the problem which may be obstacle for the care and the solution should be for resolving the issue. Problem solving approach is required better understanding of particular situation and critical thinking requires understanding of our view regarding to the problem (Rubenfeld, and Scheffer, 2010).
