Hello,

Below are few questions which I faced while appearing the practice test.

I had taken a practice test and below have mentioned a few questions which I made wrong while appearing the test. Although I managed the question No.4 to be correct in the test but it took more than 3 mins.

1.The figure shows a square surrounded by an equilateral triangle. If the edge X of the inscribed square is 12 inches long, then what is the perimeter of the equilateral triangle?(Note:I couldn't draw the figure here but I hope you can imagine reading the question , if you have any problem in imaging the figure, please let me know I shall draw and send it back to you again)

A. 36 inchesB. 36√3 inchesC. 36√3 inches + 24 inchesD. 24√3 + 36 inchesE. 72 inches

2.Are the integers a, b, and c consecutive?
(1) b – a = c – b.
(2) The average of {a, b, c} is equal to b

.A. Statement (1) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (2) by itself is not.
B. Statement (2) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (1) by itself is not.
C. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question, even though NEITHER statement BY ITSELF is sufficient
D. Either statement BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question, meaning that further information would be needed to answer the question.

3.Is |x – z| > |x – y|?
(1) |z| > |y|
(2) 0 > x
A. Statement (1) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (2) by itself is not.
B. Statement (2) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (1) by itself is not.
C. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question, even though NEITHER statement BY ITSELF is sufficient.
D. Either statement BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question, meaning that further information would be needed to answer the question.

4.Car A and car B start traveling simultaneously around a circular park with an area of 1256 square miles. Both cars leave from the same point, the START location shown above. Car A travels counter-clockwise at 40 miles per hour and car B travels clockwise at 60 miles per hour. Approximately how long does it take for the cars to meet? Use 3.14 for π.

A. 30 minutes
B. 40 minutes
C. 75 minutes
D. 125 minutes
E. 180 minutes

5.After the elections the Parliament, which consists of 400 members, is considering passing a new bill. If a bill requires 189 votes to be passed, will it pass?
(1) Exactly 85 percent of the Laborites will vote for the bill.
(2) None of the Republicans or Democrats will vote for the bill.

A. Statement (1) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (2) by itself is not.
B. Statement (2) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (1) by itself is not.
C. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question, even though NEITHER statement BY ITSELF is sufficient.
D. Either statement BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question, meaning that further information would be needed to answer the question.

6.Set A has 20 numbers and Set B has 40 numbers. Is the range of Set B greater than 45?
(1) The range of Set A and Set B combined exceeds 50.
(2) The range of Set B > range of Set A.

A. Statement (1) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (2) by itself is not.
B. Statement (2) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (1) by itself is not.
C. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question, even though NEITHER statement BY ITSELF is sufficient.
D. Either statement BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question, meaning that further information would be needed to answer the question.
