Number Properties & Sequences

GMAT Practice Questions in Number Theory, AP, GP

What's your choice?
Study mode or Quiz mode

You could choose study mode and access each question and its explanation in a sequence. Alternatively, you could opt for the quiz mode and take a timed test with the same questions and benchmark your performance. Rest assured, in either mode you get complete video explanations.

You may get five to seven questions from Number systems, number properties and number theory and one or two questions from sequences and series in the GMAT quant section - in both variants viz., problem solving and data sufficiency. The concepts tested include LCM, HCF, perfect squares, prime factorization, number of factors, remainders, factorials, odd and even numbers, and arithmetic and geometric progressions.

If you have difficulty in solving the question, go to the explanatory answer or the video explanations (wherever provided) to learn how to crack the question.
