MATHS — PRACTICE SET 22 — SOLVED

These Practice Sets for Maths are specially designed keeping in view of the pattern that we see in the various competitive exams, especially the Combined Graduate Level Examination (CGLE), SI Delhi Police and CPO Exam, and Grade-II DAAS (except Geometry and Trigonometry)  of the Staff selection Commission (SSC) and the DSSSB. I hope they’ll help you immensely.
