GMAT diagnostic

This Free GMAT Diagnostic Test has 24 questions. It offers a simple way to understand the type of questions to expect in the GMAT. The Quantitative Reasoning questions cover topics like number properties, algebra, coordinates, permutation and combination, arithmetic word problems – percentages, time and distance, etc. Both PS and DS types have been included. The Verbal reasoning section consists of questions on Sentence correction, Critical reasoning and Reading comprehension. Some of the questions have been developed in-house and some borrowed from different sources on GMATclub (which are widely available).

Though this is NOT an adaptive test, the time limit to complete the test would be similar to an actual GMAT test.

After the completion of the test, a score will be given as a percentage. Expected Percentage to GMAT score conversion (this is NOT an exact conversion):

  • Less than 20%: Below 500 range => You need to work a lot on your prep
  • 20% to less than 40%: 500 to 550 range => You have basic idea of what the GMAT is. Keep at it
  • 40% to less than 60%: 550 to 600 range => Decent! But still lacking in multiple concepts. 
  • 60% to less than 80%: 600 to 700 range => You are pretty much there. Need a bit of final push
  • 80% or above: 700 to 800 range => You are almost there and maybe ready for the actual test with some brushing up

As the economic role of multinational, global corporations expands, the international economic environment will be shaped increasingly not by governments or international institutions, but by the interaction between governments and global corporations, especially in the United States, Europe, and Japan. A significant factor in this shifting world economy is the trend toward regional trading blocs of nations, which has a potentially large effect on the evolution of the world trading system. Two examples of this trend are the United States-Canada Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and Europe 1992, the move by the European Community (EC) to dismantle impediments to the free flow of goods, services, capital, and labor among member states by the end of 1992. However, although numerous political and economic factors were operative in launching the move to integrate the EC’s markets, concern about protectionism within the EC does not appear to have been a major consideration. This is in sharp contrast to the FTA; the overwhelming reason for that bilateral initiative was fear of increasing United States protectionism. Nonetheless, although markedly different in origin and nature, both regional developments are highly significant in that they will foster integration in the two largest and richest markets of the world, as well as provoke questions about the future direction of the world trading system.

The passage suggests which of the following about global corporations?

Antarctic seals dive to great depths and stay submerged for hours. They do not rely solely on oxygen held in their lungs, but also store extra oxygen in their blood. Indeed, some researchers hypothesize that for long dives these seals also store oxygenated blood in their spleens.

Each of the following, if true, provides some support for the researchers' hypothesis EXCEPT:

Five years ago, during the first North American outbreak of the cattle disease CXC, the death rate from the disease was 5 percent of all reported cases, whereas today the corresponding figure is over 18 percent. It is clear, therefore, that during these past 5 years, CXC has increased in virulence.

Which one of the following, if true, most substantially weakens the argument?

Some animals, such as dolphins, dogs, and African grey parrots, seem to exhibit cognitive functions typically associated with higher-order primates such as chimpanzees, gorillas, and humans. Some parrots, for example, have vocabularies of hundreds of words that they can string together in a comprehensible syntax. This clearly shows that humans and primates are not the only animals capable of using language to communicate. One parrot, named Alex, has been known to ask to be petted or kissed and will exhibit aggression if the gesture offered is not the specific one requested.

Which of the following, if true, would most strengthen the conclusion above?

The noise caused by airplanes during takeoff and landing imposes a large burden on people who live or work near airports. When airports operate late at night or early in the morning, the disturbance can disrupt normal sleeping patterns, even leading to severe sleep deprivation disorders. When the flight paths of airplanes lie too close to the ground, the resulting noise interferes with work performance in nearby businesses and the peaceful enjoyment of life by residents in the proximity. However, the operation of an airport, unlike a neighbor who simply plays music too loudly, provides a valuable benefit to the surrounding community, in the form of convenient transportation for both personal and economic purposes. Thus the only option is to establish standards for the reasonable operation of airports and fine those that violate the guidelines.

The bold phrase plays which of the following roles in the argument above?

18 / 24

Choose the correct option:
Three-digit numbers are formed using the digits 1 to 6 such that each digit is used only once. How many three-digit numbers are possible if the digits in the hundreds’ place is greater than the digit in the tens' place, which is again greater than the digit in the units’ place?
