SECTION II: Quantitative Abssility & DI

Evaluation:This year this section was much easier than last year. A lot of questions were direct and were easy. Equal weight age was given to current issues, Indian economy, and rural development. One with an average level of preparation could have easily attempted 30-35 questions.

25 questions (with accuracy of about 80%) in about 20-25 minutes.
