|Sr. No.||Section||No of Questions|
MHCET ‘17 was conducted with 4 sections exactly as per the notification of MHCET exam conducted by DTE (Directorate of Technical Education). “Multiple correct” was the theme of MHCET ’17, meaning almost every question had at least 3 given answers and one had to evaluate how many of them were correct, before marking the correct combination in the options. This meant taking a few precious seconds longer per question. Overall level of difficulty was the same as MHCET ‘17 was tougher compared to MHCET ‘16, but standardized in both slots of Day 1.
Reasoning (Verbal and Analytical)
As usual, Reasoning had the highest weightage in MHCET ‘17. A wide variety of questions from Direction Sense, Blood Relations, Cause and Effect, Syllogisms, Cause & Effect, Statement – Conclusion, Coding – Decoding were seen. Questions from Arrangements and Puzzles had sets of 6 x 2, 7 x 3 and 6 x 3 variable structure which were lengthy in nature. The key was to pick the right sets to solve. A set of Data Structures was there with an easy logic to crack. A few puzzles based on Mathematical Operators were also observed this year. Critical Reasoning had questions based on Strengthening / Weakening Arguments, Inferences, Parallel Reasoning, and Resolve the Paradox. The set on Coding – Decoding had only 1 – 2 words for which one could discern the codes, but the rest had to be derived through logic, not through the standard elimination method.

This section had tricky questions though from the same topics of Series and Analogies. 15 questions were from series and rest from analogies. A prepared student can easily chalk down 18+ correct questions in 18 minutes.

- Ideal Attempts: 22
- Ideal Score: 19+
Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation
Unlike last year, this section was considered as relatively easy questions compared to last year.
A good mix from all topics including Linear & Quadratic equations, Percentage and its applications, Ratio and its application, Time and Work, Time and Distance, Permutation & Combination and Probability. 3 sets from DI including Tables, Line graphs, Pie charts and 1 caselet based on Profit and Loss were asked. 2 sets were easy, one was tough and one calculative. 5 questions from DS were also part of the section from various topics. They were easy to moderate. 5 questions on Data Comparison too were seen this time, which were missing last year. Surprisingly, 5 questions on Series were the part of this section instead of Reasoning on find the wrong number in numerical series. An aspirant good with calculations take this section before other section and can easily crack it.
- Ideal Time: 40 minutes
- Ideal Attempts: 35+
- Ideal Score: 32+
Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension
As expected, there was a spread of questions of all types, with a few unexpected inclusions and omissions. Like last year, Logical Discontinuity (which was asked as “Which of the following sentences are not part of the main idea?”) made an appearance with 5 very easy questions. There was a good focus given to RC this time, with 15 questions (1 passage with 7 questions and 1 with 8 questions) as compared to 10 questions last year. The usual suspects like Find the Synonym OR Antonym (3 questions), Conjunction replacement (5 questions), Find the correct / incorrect sentence / s (2 each on correct and incorrect), and Logical Continuation (5 questions) were present.
The odd things about the section were 5 questions on Underlined Fragment Replacement, where the fragments to be replaced had already been marked and 3 variations of the changes required had been given, with more than 1 variation being correct. The Cloze passage (1 passage with 8 questions) also had a word in the blank itself, with 4 options for each blank containing replacements, and the last option being “The given word is correct”. This is similar to the option “No change required”, but needs a second longer to think and answer.

- Ideal Score: 36+
