## 45th SSC CGL level Question Set, 11th on Algebra

This is the 45th question set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL exam and 11th on topic Algebra.

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 this conceptual analytical approach.

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

Before taking the test you may like to refer to our **concept tutorials** on Algebra and other related topics,
