  1. Section-Wise Analysis

  1. The General English section consists of verbal ability (grammar and vocabulary) and reading comprehension. The vocabulary questions are considered easy in SNAP exam. Among the RC passages, it is advisable to choose the direct ones. Skimming through the passage and questions in a single glance easily gives an idea about the difficulty level of the passages. Someone who is preparing for exams like CAT 2020 or XAT 2021 will find the General English in SNAP 2020 easy.
  2. The QA, DI & DS section consists of 20 questions. Around 40 percent of questions are arithmetic (Number System, Time Speed Distance, Time % Work, Percentages, Profit & Loss, Averages and Ration & Proportion) and 18 percent questions from Geometry & Mensuration. The level of questions not very tough. Usually, there are two DI sets out of which one is easier, so that’s a wise choice to attempt.
  3. The Logical & Analytical Reasoning section is considered tough and needs extensive practice. The questions in this section are not set-based. Thus, you may have to dedicate the maximum time in this section. However, questions on the following topics are easy – Input/output, Visual Reasoning, Series, Puzzles, and Mathematical Reasoning.
