CAT 2020 Question Paper | VARC Slot 1

CAT Previous Year Paper | CAT VARC Questions | Question 19

Sentence rearrangement or Para Jumbles is one of the easiest as well as the trickiest section that you could face in the CAT exam. Usually, this feels to be easier because you can connect the 4 options into a group of two but grouping those two into one is trickier. Basically, you must pick 1 out of 24 possibilities. In the CAT previous year papers, we saw that there were 4 questions on an average per slot in Sentence Rearrangement. CAT 2020 saw a reduction of questions from 34 to 26 in VARC section because of which the average no. of questions got reduced from 4 to 3. The best place to start your online CAT preparation is the CAT Previous Year Paper. We at 2IIM Online CAT Coaching offer you exactly that, in a user-friendly format to take value from this.
