a) Selected b) Rejected c) Referred to Chairman d)Data Insufficient

50- Q.55 were also a bit easy and were of two types:
Example of type 1:
If * means +, + means -, - means / and / means *, then what is the value of-
Example of type 2:

Important things to be remembered:
Most of the questions were easy; all you need is time management and accuracy. Try to attempt the paper in two passes. In the first pass, solve the ques u r able to and leav others for the last mins. Then start the paper again to do the remaining questions. Doing this you may find that you have attempted 35-38 questions in half the time (in 30-33 mins). So don't feel low because paper is very easy!...and paper get repeated...so search well for papers b4hand..u will get an idea bout it..
