CAT 2019 has three main sections:

  • QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE (QA)
  • VERBAL ABILITY & READING COMPREHENSION (VA&RC)
  • DATA INTERPRETATION & LOGICAL REASONING (DA&LR)

QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE

The quantitative aptitude is the section where numerical questions are asked to test the mathematical skills, accuracy and speed and pressure handling ability of the candidates. In general, the questions in quant for the CAT section are related to basic and elementary mathematics and require the candidates to be completely aware of the fundamental concepts to solve them. In CAT, the quantitative ability is completely a separate section and thus, a separate sectional timing is present in which the candidates are required to solve the questions.
