There were 3-4 questions each on antonyms-synonyms, one word substitution & phrase meaning (Easy), analogies &para jumbles (Easy). Verbal Reasoning questions were based on deductive reasoning, cause & effect statements, implicit-explicit assumptions (1-2 questions each).

Except vocabulary questions, the section was easy and doable

Other topics were numbers (2Q), averages & percentages (3Q), simple & compound interest & partnership (2Q), Time-Speed-Distance, work &effort (6Q), mensuration (2Q).There were a few questions on equations. There were no questions from modern math. Overall, it was a like a typical SET BBA quant section

General Awareness

Quite a few questions were asked from static GK topics like economic terms, national insignia, establishments, books-authors & general sciences. Around 40% questions were from current affairs topics like awards, sports & personalities. Thus, it was once again a representative GK section & similar to past exams. Overall difficulty level was moderate.

Analytical & Logical Reasoning

Key topics tested in this section were coding-decoding (3-4 Q), matrix arrangements (8-9 Q), family tree, directions, logical puzzles, odd-man-out (2-3 Q), groups and conditionality. There was no syllogisms based question. This section was easy
