3)Analytical Reasoning:

Take Barrons 12th edition and go through all of the model test papers(1-5). Omit the passages containing 1 or 2 qns. Study the pasages with 4 or more qns. The passages and qns are cut ,copy, paste from Barrons. Some times (rarely), they change the names.

I had gone through the previous 40 qn papers in this site and found out which passages were asked. They are:

Model test 1: Section5 - qns 1-4 (motorist), qns 13-16 (red and brown).... Section6 - qns 1-4 (conservative,democratic), qns 8-11 (latin, sanskrit), qns 12-18 (joe,larry,ned), qns 19-22 (a causes b)

Model test 2: Section1 - qns 19-22 (wallachia and rumelia) ---i got this qn, but the names were changed as london and paris, and a,b,c etc were changed as french, italian etc.

Section6 - qns 8-12 (ashland, liverpool), qns 13-16 (spelunker) ---i got this qn, qns 17-22 (pesth) ---i got this one too

Model test 3: Section6 - qns 1-4 (all Gs are Hs)

Model test 4: Section5 - qns 8-11 (horizontal row), qns 19-22 (a,b,c cause d)

Section6 - qns 8-12 (spanish, italian), qns 13-16 (all As, Bs), qns 17-22 (progressive federal party)

Model test 5: Section3 - qns8-11 (museum), qns 19-22 (A is the father)

Section7- qns 1-5 (prahtu, brahtu), qns 21-25 (scurvy)

Analytical section consists of 12 qns to be answered in 30 mins.
