What is the best answer to a question, ‘How do so many students manage to get such a huge score by attempting so many questions?’ As teachers, whatever answers we think of and even as students, whatever answers we get narrowed down upon just one answer! PRACTICE, CONSISTENT and FOCUSSED PRACTICE!! After going through the entire course material that we have, instead of feeling confident we must feel curious. Curious as in what new pattern can be derived out of the basics that we have already studied, how much extra time would a set take if it were modified a bit and we are brought out of our comfort zone. All this analysis is possible only when one goes through regular practice and keeps attempting new sets of puzzles, inequalities etc… Solve these questions and enjoy! 🙂
