## Study Notes On Data Sufficiency

Data Sufficiency

It is an important topic in almost all competitive exams. As we all know, time is one of the most important factors in exams, but questions of data sufficiency require some time. One must not be guessed or in a hurry while solving these questions. Each question of this topic consists of a question with two statements numbered I and II. One has to analyse the problem, read the given statements and give the answer:

⦁ If data in statement I alone is sufficient, while the data in statement II  alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

⦁If data in statement II alone is sufficient, while the data in statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

⦁ If data in either I alone or in II alone are sufficient.⦁ If data in both I and II together are not sufficient.

⦁ If data in both I and II together are necessary to answer. Questions of Data Sufficiency are based on some typical cases like:

⦁ Relations

⦁ Ages

⦁ Comparison etc.

Comparison is done between two or more persons or things. One needs to carefully read the question and solve both statements thoroughly to get the right option.
