Analysis of sections:

General English
The General English section of SNAP-2022 was easy like last year’s SNAP. There were no RC
questions. All questions were on Verbal Ability.
Following was the break-up of the questions in the section:

SNAP Analysis -2

The General English section was dominated by Grammar questions. There were questions on

synonyms (1 question) and spellings (1 question). There was also a proverb-based question where

one had to identify the statement representing the meaning of the given proverb. In Grammar, fill-in-the

blanks and other miscellaneous questions were asked which tested tenses, conjunctions,

prepositions and other parts of speech. There was one question that required one to identify the

correct assertive sentence. The poem-based question required one to identify the line which had no

object. No RC questions were asked which made the section less time-consuming.

Since the section was overall easy, one could attempt 13 or 14 questions with high accuracy in

about 13 or 14 minutes.

Analytical & Logical Reasoning

Out of the 25 questions in this section, 14 questions were on Verbal Reasoning and the remaining 11 were on Non-Verbal Reasoning.

The questions on Verbal Reasoning included 1 on Critical Reasoning. The other Verbal Reasoning questions were on expected lines with Courses of Action and Decision Making (4 questions), Statement and Assumption (2 questions), Strong-Weak Arguments (1 question), Cause-Effect (2 questions), and Syllogisms (2 questions).

The questions on Non-Verbal Reasoning included questions on clocks, family trees, Series completion, Linear arrangement etc. There were no set-based questions. Unlike previous years of the SNAP test, no question in this section required any understanding of Physics in order to be able to answer the question.

The majority of the questions in the section were easy to medium in terms of the level of difficulty.

The following table shows the break-up of the questions in this section.

Question types Number of questions Level of difficulty
Verbal Reasoning (14 questions)
Statement & Assumption 2 Easy
Strong/Weak Arguments 1 Easy
Syllogisms 2 Easy
CR – Strengthen 1 Easy
Course of Action and Decision Making 4 Easy
Cause-Effect 2 Easy
Miscellaneous (Anagram-based etc) 2 Easy
Non-Verbal Reasoning (Total 11 questions: good attempt is 6-7 questions)
Complete the series 4


(Alphanumeric – 1 e, 1 d; Numeric – 2 m)

1 easy, 2 medium, 1 difficult
Clocks 2 1 easy, 1 medium
Linear Arrangement + Directions 1


(Reference to directions was given using a map of India and Sri Lanka)

1 difficult
Family Tree 2


(According to student feedback, the difficult question was ambiguous)

1 easy, 1 difficult
Sequential Output 1 medium to difficult
Binary Logic 1 1 medium

Overall this section was of medium difficulty level. A good strategy would be to attempt around 18-19 questions in 24-26 minutes.

Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency

Out of the 20 questions in this section, 18 questions were on Mathematics and there were two questions on Data Interpretation. The two questions on Data Interpretation were based on the same data but they didn’t appear consecutively in the paper. There was no question of Data Sufficiency. Overall this section was a little bit higher than the medium level of difficulty. Though some questions in the section were easy and could be solved orally, about 8 to 9 questions were somewhat challenging. This section had 60% of questions at a medium level of difficulty and 20% at a difficult level of difficulty. Overall, this section was slightly more difficult than the QA section of last year’s paper on SNAP-2021.

The questions on Mathematics were dominated by Arithmetic (6 questions), followed by Modern Mathematics (5 questions) and Geometry (3 questions). Students reported that many questions in the section had ‘None of the above as an option and a few questions had an element of ambiguity (the two symbols of pi and square root were misplaced).

Following was the break-up of the questions in the section:

Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency Easy Medium Difficult Total
Arithmetic 1 4 1 6
Modern Mathematics 1 2 2 5
Geometry (Circle+Triangle, Trigonometry, Mensuration) 0 3 0 3
Numbers 1 0 0 1
Number Grid 0 1 0 1
Algebra 0 1 1 2
Data Interpretation 1 1 0 2

A good strategy would be to attempt around 12 to 13 questions in 20-22 minutes.
