Geometry Practice Questions

Angles, Triangles, Quadrilaterals, Circles, Semi circles and squares. A collection of curated practice questions on Geometry that typically appear in TANCET, GMAT, GRE, CAT and other B School admission tests. Detailed explanatory answers and shortcuts, wherever applicable, are provided for each of the questions.
