The resoning paper was quite tough. I had studied english or verbal portion from the study material provided by IMS (for CAT) and trust me the questions in the paper were of the similar pattern and same difficulty level as given in the study material.
Cut off for LR was about 16 questions and for Verbal was about 23.Total 64 out of 230 were selected from my college for interview.
