#### GMAT RC question

Sun Jun 17, 2012 12:00 pm
Is it true that adaptive algorithms stops working in RC questions ? The questions of a RC are constant irrespective of how one answers part of them.

That's an interesting information. Would the same be applied to PS and DS problems ? PS problems are used to test your conceptual knowledge or basic mathematical skills, while DS is used to test the skills necessary to decide whether the information given is relevant or not.

The same is true for the quant questions. So your ability to answer PS questions does not affect the type of questions you will receive for DS, or any other question type. I hope that helps!

You are correct that the CAT format is specific to question type. So, the level of difficulty of questions you receive is based on your performance on that same type of question, only. So, your ability to answer high-level sentence correction questions will not affect the difficulty level of critical reasoning questions you receive. I hope that answers your question.
