SSC CGL Tier II level Question Set 29 Number system 1

29th SSC CGL Tier II level Question Set, 1st on Number system problems


In this 29th question set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL Tier II exam and 1st on topic Number System, a few of the problems should pose a bit of challenge to the student. But with concept and technique based problem solving approach, explained in the paired solution set, the student should easily solve most of the problems wholly in mind.

This question set can be used as a mini-mock test on number system, even for competitive tests other than SSC CGL.

We should mention that in MCQ test, you need to deduce the answer in shortest possible time and select the right choice. You do not have to write the steps. Writing takes up valuable seconds that you can save by solving problems in mind and writing as little as possible. This is what we call Solving in mind.

In the solution set, main focus always is on how to solve in mind in minimum time.

Based on our analysis and experience we have seen that, for accurate and quick answering, the student

  • must have complete understanding of the basic concepts in the topic area
  • is adequately fast in mental math calculation
  • should try to solve each problem using the basic and rich concepts in the specific topic area and
  • does most of the deductive reasoning and calculation in his or her head rather than on paper.

Actual problem solving is done in the fourth layer. You need to use your problem solving abilities to gain an edge in competition.

The answers to the questions are given at the end.
