CAT Quantitative Aptitude | CAT 2022 Question Paper

CAT 2022 Quant, unlike previous years was not dominated by Arithmetic. Though Arithematic was the most tested topic 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.
