Re: GMAT Maths (Quantitative) Questions

Hi GoGMAT Team,

I really find the questions testing the application of my concepts but I am not sure if I will be able to solve the questions in around 2 mins.

It would really helpful if you could mention the difficulty level of the problems when you provide solutions for these questions.
