When we have 20 minutes, we must try to make the most of it! 20 minutes is not less a time for a section that’s everybody’s favorite but as we know, there are no free lunches and hence we will need to put our heart into the efforts to make the most of those 20 minutes so that we can speed up and try to score the maximum marks out of this section. Only practice can help us achieve the same. Bringing to you our time bound test for practice!

Good Luck! 🙂
