###### CAT Previous Year Paper | CAT Quant Questions | Question 2

CAT 2022 Quant 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.

$$frac {$ 3 - x ) ^ { 2 } } { 3 - x } + $frac { 1 } { 3 - x }$ $3 - x + $frac { 1 } { 3 - x }$ Since $x < 3$, $3 - x$ is positive. Let k = $3 - x$. Since k is positive, the minimum value of $k + \frac { 1 } { k }$ is 2. The question is " The minimum possible value of $\frac{x^2-6 x+10}{3-x}$, for $x\lt3$, is " ##### Hence, the answer is '$2$' Choice C is the correct answer. ###### Best CAT Online Coaching Try upto 40 hours for free Learn from the best! ###### Prepare for CAT 2024 with 2IIM's Daily Preparation Schedule ###### Know all about CAT Exam Syllabus and what to expect in CAT ###### Already have an Account? ###### CAT Coaching in ChennaiCAT 2024 Classroom Batches Starting Now! @Gopalapuram and @Anna nagar ###### Best CAT Coaching in Chennai Attend a Demo Class ###### Best Indore IPM & Rohtak IPM CoachingSignup and sample 9 full classes for free.
