### GATE General Aptitude 2018 Syllabus (GA) – Sample Questions

Verbal Ability

(A) intrepidity (B) inevitability (C) inability (D) inertness

Ans. (A)

Q.2. Choose the appropriate answer to complete the following sentence:

Medicine is to illness as law is to _________

(A) discipline (B) anarchy (C) treason (D) etiquette

Ans. (B)

Q.3. Read the following paragraph :

“The ordinary form of mercury thermometer is used for temperature ranging from – 400 F to 500oF. For measuring temperature below –40oF, thermometers filled with alcohol are used. These are, however, not satisfactory for use in high temperatures. When a mercury thermometer is used for temperature above 500o F, the space above the mercury is filled with some inert gas, usually nitrogen or carbon dioxide, placed in the thermometer under pressure. As the mercury rises, the gas pressures is increased, so that it is possible to use these thermometers for temperatures as high as 1000oF.”

With what, besides mercury, would a thermometer be filled if it was designed to be used for measuring temperature of about 500o F?

(A) Pyrometer (B) Inert gas (C) Iron and brass (D) Gas

Ans. (B)

The candidates who all want to prepare the General Aptitude section for GATE can check the details below.

General Aptitude constitutes of 2 sections-

• Verbal Ability
• Numerical Ability

These 2 sections of exam will contain all the topics which can be part of exam. These sections have to be studied well for the exam. Aptitude section of exam is a very scoring section in which you can boost the score for this competitive paper. Aptitude section for exam will contain the basic mathematical questions which have been studied from elementary classes in schools.

The basic concepts are only tested in GATE paper because the motive is to check the ability of candidate for the scratch. The topics which can be actually learned on tips or crammed are not asked in exam generally, because they do not bound to any correct checkpoint. The questions can be answered just with the simple tricks and these can be known once the practice for the questions is done thoroughly.
