GMAT Quant Questions  Inequalities
Inequalities is an important topic and you will get questions in inequalities in the quantitative reasoning section of the GMAT exam. Questions in inequalities appear in both variants  data sufficiency and problem solving. Inequalities, data sufficiency, indices, and absolute value is a potent combination.
A collection of GMAT practice questions in inequalities is given below. Attempt these questions and check whether you have got the correct answer. If you could not solve the question, go to the explanatory answer or the video explanations (wherever provided) to learn how to crack the question.
