Do not leave out marginal topics like set theory, simple and compound interest. There can be a few sitters from these topics. Hence, make sure that you solve questions from such topics too.

In CAT, Quant section will consist questions of both TITA (Type in the answer) and MCQ (Multiple choice questions). Although the TITA questions don’t have any options, the problem will be easy to solve.

How to attempt Quant questions?

The number of correct attempts is very important than the number of attempts. Generally, in quantitative aptitude section, there will be a mixture of easy, moderate, difficult, time-consuming questions. Speed is very important while solving these questions.

Always remember that this section will test your mathematical ability and accuracy with which you can solve a given problem.

Aspirants can solve certain questions logically without getting too mathematical in approach. These questions can save a considerable amount of time. Hence, aspirants must not let such opportunities slip away.

Mostly, questions will involve the use of multiple concepts. Hence, after practising questions from individual topics, aspirants must solve questions from mocks to reinforce their concept.

The ability to recall a concept from the back of your head matters more in this section than the number of concepts you know. Therefore, check periodically whether you are picking up the right cues from the questions.

Also, certain deceptively simple questions will carry a catch. If you feel some question to be too easy, check whether you are missing out some vital part. Also, read the question and options completely before answering the question.

Unconventional approach can help aspirants arrive at the answer faster than solving the question conventionally.

In certain cases, the answer the question requires might be different from what those questions conventionally ask for. In most such cases, the conventional answer will also be in the options to fool the aspirants. Avoid walking into such traps.

Options can often contain the vital clue required to solve the answer. Aspirants must definitely read the options too before solving the question. In certain questions, option elimination can prove to be helpful. Also, in certain questions, aspirants can solve the equations by substituting the options to save time.

Hope this Quantitative aptitude for CAT questions and answers practice sets will definitely help you to learn more and score more in the actual exam.
