TANCET MBA 2014 Data Sufficiency (DS)
The 2014 TANCET MBA had 20 questions in data sufficiency. Data sufficiency has been a main stay of the TANCET MBA exam and accounts for a fifth of the paper. There were few questions that were relatively easy and a student who would have prepared seriously for the TANCET should be able to get 10 in this section if he or she allotted about 20 minutes to this section in the test. These questions appeared as the 61st to the 80th question in the TANCET test.
Please note that the level of difficulty suggested for any question has been mentioned keeping an average TANCET test taker. If you are preparing for a different exam, the difficulty levels of quite a few questions could differ.
Instructions for answering
The questions are followed by two statements labelled (1) and (2), in which certain data are given. You have to decide whether the data given in the two statements are sufficient for answering the question. Using the data given in the problem plus your knowledge of mathematics and everyday facts, choose the answer as:
 If statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.
 If statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.
 If both the statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement alone is sufficient.
 If each statement ALONE is sufficient.
 If statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are not sufficient, and additional data is needed.
