## 41st SSC CGL level Question Set, 3rd on topic Mensuration

This is the 41st question set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL exam and 3rd on topic Mensuration. Students should complete this question set in prescribed time first and then only refer to the corresponding solution set.

We will repeat here the method of taking a 10 problem test if you have not gone through it already.

### Method for taking this 10 problem test and get the best results from the test set:

**Before start,**go through the tutorials**Basic concepts on Geometry 1**,**, Basic concepts on Geometry 2**or any other short but good material to refresh your concepts if you so require.**Basic concepts on Geometry 3****Answer the questions**in an undisturbed environment with no interruption, full concentration and alarm set at 15 minutes.**When the time limit of 15 minutes is over,**mark up to which you have answered,**but go on to complete the set.****At the end,**refer to the answers at the end of this question set 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.**Identify and analyze**the problems that**you couldn't do**to learn how to solve those problems.**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.**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.**Give a gap**before you take a 10 problem practice test again.

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