The quantitative ability & data interpretation section was the tougher among the two sections.

The quantitative ability & data interpretation was tougher among the two. The logical reasoning sets were extremely easy. The RC passages were a bit lengthy."

The Quant area saw a majority of questions from geometry and algebra (5-6 questions each). They were also tricky in nature. DI was calculation intensive but doable."
