CAT 2020 Question Paper | VARC Slot 3

CAT Previous Year Paper | CAT VARC Questions | Question 26

Sentence Elimination (a) Odd one out is one of the if not the easiest section that you could face in the VA section under the CAT exam. The probability of getting it right is much higher than the Sentence Rearrangement section and being non-negative in nature makes it easier to answer. In the CAT previous year papers, we saw that there were 3 questions on an average per slot in Sentence Elimination. 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 3 to 2. The best place to start your CAT online preparation for the CAT Exam are the actual CAT Previous Year Papers.
