Data Sufficiency
Data sufficiency problems can be broadly classified in terms of (a) subject content and (b) format. The subject content could be quantitative or non-quantitative. Some tests like BIM, Anna University, MAT etc., stress only the quantitative. Others like CAT, MAT, XLRI and many others include logical, analytical or common sense quantitative patterns, which may generally be termed non-quantitative. The format contains 2 statements and a question, or sometimes 3 statements and a question (some times this is seen only in XLRI). The answer choices may be 4 or 5. The 4-choice pattern adopted by CAT, MAT, S P Jain and sometimes XLRI takes the following pattern, In order to answer the question, mark A. If the question is answerable from the first statement alone. B. If the question is answerable from the second statement alone C. If the question can be answered with the help of both statement 1 and statement 2. D. If the question cannot be answered even with both the statements. The 5-choice pattern options are In order to answer from the questions, mark A. B. C. D. E. If If If If If it it it it it answerable from statement 1 alone. is answerable from statement 2 alone. is answerable from both statement 1 and statement 2. is answerable from either 1 or 2, mutually independently. is not answerable for want of sufficient statements.

The XLRI pattern sometimes has 3 statements 1, 2 & 3 In answering the question the student will mark as the response choice A, B, C, D or E as A. B. C. D. If a particular statement alone can answer the question If a particular pair of statements alone can answer the question. If any one pair of statements can answer the question unambiguously If all three statements are necessary and sufficient to answer the given question and E. If the question cannot be answered for want of sufficient statements
