The Quantitative Reasoning section of the GRE® General Test measures your ability to:
 understand basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis
 reason quantitatively
 solve problems in a quantitative setting
There are three types of questions in the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GRE General Test:
 Quantitative Comparison — These questions test your ability to reason quickly and accurately about the relative sizes of two quantities or to perceive that not enough information is provided to make such a comparison.
 Problem Solving — The format of these multiplechoice questions varies. The solution may require simple computations, manipulations or multistep problemsolving.
 Data Interpretation — Some problemsolving questions involve data analysis. Many occur in sets of two to five questions that share common data in the form of tables or graphs that allow you to read or estimate data values.
