We claim to know few topics and we hardly care about the time we spend solving these in our daily practice schedules. What happens next is that in the exams we end up taking more than the time necessary for actually putting into these questions. If we solve these questions on a daily basis, it adds up to our preparation in numerous ways as, we psychologically are aware that in this much time I generally end up solving those many such questions and that helps in the main exam. This awareness of the amount of time taken itself adds up to our existing confidence level. Questions on simplification and quadratic equations however difficult they may seem must be solved without fail as if we claim that we know something, we must solve it in whatever form it may come! So, bind yourself in time and solve these 10 questions in about 6-7 minutes to help yourself get a grip over the clock!
