Section-wise analysis of the last year’s question paper

Section 1- Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension

Analysis- This one section probably gets all the energy drained out in fickle ways. Last year question paper was of moderate length containing questions from the Economics, Linguistic Studies, Environment, etc. the questions were extremely confusing since, the MCQs were pretty close to right. The candidates had to struggle to determine the best possible answers. Since they had to read the passages multiple times to find the correct option. Aspirants ran out of time thus reducing the overall attempts in this section. The para-formation questions were the toughest ones due to the absence of answer choices. It proved to be a massive task for the exam takers to identify relevant connections. At first, VARC may seem a readable and not-so-tough section. But, the close choices in the Reading Comprehension questions can really take a toll on you. Last year, Questions from Verbal Ability section were quite tough to crack since there were no options to guide the students.

Section 2- LRDI (Logical Reasoning & Data Interpretation)

Analysis- since 2015, CAT faced a new benchmark set for CAT aspirants in terms of difficulty level for the LRDI section. Candidates who had been working furiously,  even those felt that CAT difficulty has increased. Questions in LRDI section certainly went up one notch in CAT 2016. However, Data interpretation questions were yet achievable. Questions were tricky. Moreover, candidates the overall LRDI section was a little intimidating. The DILR section can create mess if the candidate does not prepare for this section well.

Section 3- QA (Quantitative Ability)

Analysis- The quant section is the most scoring section. Last year, most of the questions were from Geometry which was moderate to difficult. However, questions from other topics Arithmetic, numbers etc. were solvable. Some portions posed a little problem for example- in a few cases mathematical symbols were not easy to interpret.
