About OG Problems I had already registered for my test and was pressed for time. So I did not complete all the problems in the OG 12th edition. I was able to get to only about 60-70 questions of each type (PS & DS) in Quant and 30-35 of each type in Verbal. These questions, as you may be aware, are...
