Any figures that accompany the questions in this section may be assumed to be drawn as accurately as possible EXCEPT when it is stated that a particular figure is not drawn to scale. Letters such as x, y, and n stand for real numbers.
Part One — Word Problems
Each question in Part One consists of a word problem followed by four answer choices. You may write in your test booklet; however, you may be able to solve many of these problems in your head. Next, look at the four answer choices given and select the best answer.

The correct answer is 11, so circle C is darkened.
Sample Answer
Part Two — Quantitative Comparisons
All questions in Part Two are quantitative comparisons between the quantities shown in Column A and Column B. Using the information given in each question, compare the quantity in Column A to the quantity in Column B, and chose one of these four answer choices:
(A)The quantity in Column A is greater.
(B)The quantity in Column B is greater.
(C)The two quantities are equal.
(D)The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
EXAMPLE 2:
