SSC CGL Questions 87 Mensuration 7 header

This is the 87th question set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL exam and 7th on topic Mensuration. Students should complete this question set in prescribed time first and then only refer to the corresponding solution set.

This 10 problem question set can effectively be used as a mini-mock test on SSC CGL Mensuration.

After taking the test, you may refer to the detailed solutions at SSC CGL level Solution Set 87, Mensuration 7, for step by step explanation of the solutions accompanied by suitable figures. In any case, the answers to the questions are given at the end.

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:

  1. Before start, go through the tutorials Basic concepts on Geometry 1, Basic concepts on Geometry 2, Basic concepts on Geometry 3 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 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.
  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.
