Saurabh Bansal, COO, and co-founder at Adda 247 termed the paper moderate. “ In today’s exam, the questions asked in reasoning section were of easy level and one-two questions were a bit time-consuming. Coding-decoding, mathematical operations were asked majorly. Overall, if all the shifts are considered, this section was the easiest of all. One can easily attempt 22-23 questions,” he said.
“In the quantitative section, 17-20 attempts with accuracy can be good attempts in this section. Trigonometry, mensuration, geometry questions are being asked mostly in every shift. The trigonometry question asked in the third shift was very long.” Bansal added.
In the GA section, questions based on current affairs till March 2021 were asked. Most questions were asked from ancient History. Other questions are easy but demanded deep knowledge of the subjects.
“Although the good attempts vary with each shift, in today’s shift 22-23 questions in reasoning, 16-18 in general awareness, 17-20 in quantitative aptitude and 21-22 in English should be considered good attempts considering the difficulty level of today’s session” Bansal concluded.
