For More Practice Questions on eLitmus visit our collection:** eLitmus Questions Set**

There are 3 Sections of an eLitmus pH Test Paper and each section contains 20 Questions. We will discuss the "**syllabus of Elitmus**" based on each section.

- Quantitative Aptitude:
- Problem Solving or Data Interpretation and Reasoning
- Verbal Ability

There are 20 Questions in each section.

Let's discuss syllabus for each section of the elitmus paper :

## 1. Quantitative Aptitude Syllabus for elitmus pH Test

Please go through the following past eLitmus Quantitative questions to have a glimpse of the level:

Practice set 1

Practice set 2

Details:

- Number Systems (at least 4 Questions)

- Probability (Roughly 2 Questions)

- Permutation Combination (2 Questions)

- Geometry (At least 3 Questions)

- Equations and Inequalities (1-2 Questions)

- Arithmetic , Geometric and Harmonic Progressions (AP,GP,HP) : (1-2 Questions)

- Logarithms (1 Questions at least)

- Speed, Time and Distance (1-3 Questions)

- Time and Work (1-2 Questions), sometimes asked sometimes not

- Mixture and alligation (1 question), sometimes asked sometimes not

- Percentage (1 question), sometimes asked sometimes not

Focus on the following topics to get a good score, I must say a very good score(above 90 percentile) because the competition is very tough now:

- Number Systems

- Geometry

- Probability

- Permutation and Combination

If you prepare just these topics very well and up to the level of eLitmus, believe me you will get above 90 percentile. Another advantage of preparing these topics with a solid knowledge is that these are also the topics for problem solving section, which we will be discussing next, so if you are preparing these topics you are also preparing for problem solving section.

If you are already very good at quantitative aptitude, you don't need to waste too much of your time in preparing this section. You should focus on other section to get a better result.

But, if your quantitative aptitude is weak, you should give time to it my friend because the level of eLitmus paper is quite good(equivalent to CAT paper). Believe me, there is no other way or any shortcut to get good score. Practice continuously for the next 10-15 days until you start feeling comfortable with it.

Please don't try to solve too many questions because this way you will screw yourself(don't forget there is negative marking too in the exam). Just target a certain number of question according to your level, after all everyone knows his/her level of aptitude. Just target to solve a minimum of 4 questions correctly in this section.

Following are the expected percentile based on marks you get:

30 marks ~ 70 percentile

40 marks ~ 80 percentile

50 marks ~ 90 percentile

60 marks ~ 95+ percentile

And if you score more than 60 marks, you are genius !!

Here are some questions for preparing this section:

Mixed Questions

Probability

Geometry

Number Systems

Apart from the links provided above go through Arun Sharma's Quantitative Aptitude Book for CAT. That should be enough for practicing the questions asked in eLitmus test. It covers the syllabus of eLiitmus in a pretty good way for the above topics.

## 2. Problem Solving Syllabus for eLitmus pH Test:

Logic!! Speed!! Practice!!

There are six groups of questions in this section:

- First group contains 4 question based on data interpretation

- Second and third group contains 2 questions each based a paragraph

- Fourth group contains 4 questions based on data sufficiency

- Fifth group contains 5 questions based on data interpretation

- Sixth group contains 3 questions based on crypt arithmetic concept

Group first, and fifth(data interpretation groups) are too lengthy and full of calculation so unless your calculation speed is too good don't try to solve these otherwise you will lose too much of your time without any output.

Group second and third are relatively easy. Though they are also calculation based, they involve less calculation than the first and fifth group. So if your calculation speed is just good you can go ahead and try to solve these questions.

Group fourth contains 4 questions mainly from number systems, geometry, permutation and combination, time speed and distance. If you have prepared well for the quantitative aptitude section then you must try to solve this section.

Group sixth is totally new and must not be touched until practised before. If you are good at playing with numbers you will be able solve this but at a cost of too much of your time. But if don't know how to manipulate numbers, believe me, you can't even solve it. So please practice this section as much as you can. Once practiced, this is one of the easiest question to solve in the whole paper.

Here are some useful links to prepare for crypt arithmetic section:

Link 1

Link 2

Link 3

Follow this link to practice questions for this section.

Though the marks and percentile for this section is also similar as the quantitative section, we are again listing down for ease:

30 marks ~ 70 percentile

40 marks ~ 80 percentile

50 marks ~ 90 percentile

60 marks ~ 95+ percentile

And if you score more than 60 marks, you are genius !!

## 3. Verbal Ability Syllabus for elitmus pH Test:

- 4 Fill in the blanks Questions

- 3 Reading Comprehension paragraphs: Each RC will have 4 Questions.

- 2 Jumbled Paragraphs Questions

- 2 Vocabulary Based Question :Fill the pair of gaps in a sentence with the most appropriate pair of words given.

Past year CAT questions are best to refer to prepare for this section. Altough the level of question is not so tough like CAT but preparing from the CAT paper will boost your confidence.

Improve your grammar as much as you can to score good in this section.

This Section is quite easy and so you will have to score very high to get a good percentile.

Following are the expected percentile based on marks you get:

60 marks ~ 60 percentile

70 marks ~ 70 percentile

80 marks ~ 80 percentile

90 marks ~ 85 percentile

100 marks ~ 90 percentile

If you score more than 100, be sure to get above 90 percentile.

Target at least 9-10 questions in this section. You can save a lot of time from this section.
