CAT Quantitative Aptitude | CAT 2020 Question Paper

CAT 2020 slot Quant was medium in terms of the level of difficulty and was dominated by Arithmetic followed by Algebra. In Arithmetic, the questions were dominated by topics like Speed-time-distance, Mixture and Alligations. This year, there was a surprise. The questions from Geometry were relatively on the lower side as compared to the previous years. There were 8 TITA Qs this year. Overall this section was at a medium level of difficulty.
