12th SSC CGL Tier II level Question Set, topic Trigonometry 3

SSC-CGL-Tier-2-question-set-12-trigonometry-3-questions-answers

This is the 12th question set for the 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL exam and 3rd on topic Trigonometry. The answers to the questions and link to the detailed solutions are given at the end.

We repeat the method of taking the test. It is important to follow result bearing methods even in practice test environment.

Method of taking the test for getting the best results from the test:

  1. Before start, you may refer to our tutorial Basic and rich Trigonometric concepts and applications or any short but good material to refresh your concepts if you so require.
  2. Answer the questions in an undisturbed environment with no interruption, full concentration and alarm set at 12 minutes.
  3. When the time limit of 12 minutes is over, mark up to which you have answered, but go on to complete the set.
  4. At the end, refer to the answers given at the end to mark your score at 12 minutes. For every correct answer add 1 and for every incorrect answer deduct 0.25 (or whatever is the scoring pattern in the coming test). Write your score on top of the answer sheet with date and time.
  5. Identify and analyze the problems that you couldn't do to learn how to solve those problems.
  6. Identify and analyze the problems that you solved incorrectly. Identify the reasons behind the errors. If it is because of your shortcoming in topic knowledge improve it by referring to only that part of concept from the best source you can get hold of. You might google it. If it is because of your method of answering, analyze and improve those aspects specifically.
  7. Identify and analyze the problems that posed difficulties for you and delayed you. Analyze and learn how to solve the problems using basic concepts and relevant problem solving strategies and techniques.
  8. Give a gap before you take a 10 problem practice test again.

Important: both practice tests and mock tests must be timed, analyzed, improving actions taken and then repeated. With intelligent method, it is possible to reach highest excellence level in performance.
