The four types of questions in the Quantitative Reasoning section of the GRE are:

• Multiple Choice (one or more answers)
• Numeric Entry
• Quantitative Comparison

In this section, we’ll cover the first three types. Quantitative Comparison questions are covered in the following section.

This is likely the question format that you’re most familiar with. For these questions, you’ll select one answer from five answer choices. Questions of this type are easier in some ways; you know how many answers there are, and you have the option to guess. However, the GRE is also known for having many trap answers that fool unprepared students. That’s why it’s important to study both the material that the GRE covers and the types of questions and answers you’ll see on test day.

## Multiple Choice (one or more answers)

These questions ask you to select one or more answers from a list of answer choices. The question may or may not tell you how many correct answers there are. These questions can be difficult because all of the correct choices must be selected to get credit.

An important strategy for questions of this type is recognizing patterns and relations between the answers. For example, if you can determine the maximum or minimum value of possible answers, you may be able to eliminate incorrect answers quickly.
