6th SSC CGL Tier II level Question Set, 3rd on Geometry

SSC CGL Tier2 level question set 6 geometry3 top

This is the 6th question set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL Tier II exam and the 3rd on topic Geometry.

For maximum gains, the test should be taken first, that is obvious. But more importantly, to absorb the concepts, techniques and deductive reasoning elaborated through the solutions, one must solve many problems in a systematic manner using the conceptual analytical approach.

Learning by doing is the best learning. There is no other alternative towards achieving excellence.

Method for taking the test and get the best results from the test set:

  1. Before start, go through the tutorials on Geometry basic concepts part 1 on points lines and triangles , Geometry basic concepts part 2 on Quadrilaterals Squares Rectangles,Geometry basic and rich concepts part 3 on Circles, Basic and rich Geometry concepts part 4 on proof of arc angle subtending concept, Basic and rich geometry concepts part 5 on proof of median relations, Basic and rich Geometry concepts part 6 on proof of triangle area from medians, Basic and Rich Geometry concepts part 7 on laws of sines and laws of cosines, or any other short but good material to refresh your concepts if you so require.
  2. Answer the questions in an undisturbed environment with no interruption, full concentration and alarm set at 15 minutes.
  3. When the time limit of 15 minutes is over, mark up to which you have answered, but go on to complete the set.
  4. At the end, refer to the answers given at the end to mark your score at 15 minutes. For every correct answer add 1 and for every incorrect answer deduct 0.25 (or whatever is the scoring pattern in the coming test). Write your score on top of the answer sheet with date and time.
  5. Identify and analyze the problems that you couldn't do to learn how to solve those problems.
  6. Identify and analyze the problems that you solved incorrectly. Identify the reasons behind the errors. If it is because of your shortcoming in topic knowledge improve it by referring to only that part of concept from the best source you get hold of. You might google it. If it is because of your method of answering, analyze and improve those aspects specifically.
  7. Identify and analyze the problems that posed difficulties for you and delayed you. Analyze and learn how to solve the problems using basic concepts and relevant problem solving strategies and techniques.
  8. Give a gap before you take a 10 problem practice test again.

Important: both practice tests and mock tests must be timed, analyzed, improving actions taken and then repeated. With intelligent method, it is possible to reach highest excellence level in performance.

Now set the stopwatch alarm and start taking this test. It is not difficult.
