I have gone through the article. The author has given eighteen questions on arithmetic and mensuration. Although these types of questions are quite common in the quantitative aptitude section of various competitive examinations, the author has merely mentioned the correct alternative (answer) in respect of each of the question. She has not indicated the process by which the problem can be solved. I wonder how this would help the aspirants, especially those who are not from mathematics background, or who have forgotten the basic concepts of arithmetic and mensuration.
I sincerely hope that the author would write similar useful articles in future and also elaborate the mathematical processes involved in respect of the problems. I thank the author for attempting to help the Government job aspirants.
