Statement: p is prime.reason:1) p=2*a, 2) p>10
Statement: a-2b=10.reason:1) a-3b=14, 2) b>0
**Some syllogisms may appear different, but actually easy overall, attempt all**
Section <b> Topics:
- Sitting Arrangement (4).

**3.5 minutes per question, try them all, easiest first, careful about arrangement qs**
Section <c> Topics:
- Comprehension (easy (1)+medium (1)).
- Sentence correction.
- Fill blanks.
**Try passages in the end, start with easy, DON'T READ IT AT FIRST PLACE, read the questions and work accordingly, around 50 sec per question, overall easy**
