In verbal section antonym and synonym were little tough and words like ‘bellow’ ‘inequity’ and ‘intrepid’ were asked which are quite tough unless one has practised vocabulary extensively. Passage asked was also not straight forward, the passage was little logical in nature. Though compared to the last AFCAT this was little easier this time. Questions asking for meaning of a ‘Phrase’ were easy.
There were 4 question from history and other from geography, civics, sports and books all in just 15 questions, and this GK section was tough and a specific and intense practice is need.
