GRE® Revised General Test: Quantitative Reasoning Sample Questions

Figures

This document includes figures, which appear on screen. Following each figure on screen is

text describing that figure. Readers using visual presentations of the figures may choose to skip

parts of the text describing the figure that begin with “Begin skippable figure description” and

end with “End skippable figure description.”

Mathematical Equations and Expressions

This document includes mathematical equations and expressions. Some of the

mathematical equations and expressions are presented as graphics. In cases where a

mathematical equation or expression is presented as a graphic, a verbal presentation is also given

and the verbal presentation comes directly after the graphic presentation. The verbal

presentation is in green font to assist readers in telling the two presentation‐modes

apart. Readers using audio alone can safely ignore the graphical presentations, and readers

using visual presentations may ignore the verbal presentations.

Introduction

The revised Quantitative Reasoning section contains four types of questions:

Multiple‐choice Questions — Select One Answer Choice

Multiple‐choice Questions — Select One or More Answer Choices

Numeric Entry Questions

Quantitative Comparison Questions

Each question appears either independently as a discrete question or as part of a set of

questions called a Data Interpretation set. All of the questions in a Data Interpretation set are

based on the same data presented in tables, graphs, or other displays of data. Below are

descriptions, directions, and samples of each type of question.

Multiple‐Choice Questions — Select One Answer Choice

These questions are multiple‐choice questions that ask you to select only one answer

choice from a list of five choices.

Sample question 2 below is based on figure 2.

Figure 2

Begin skippable figure description.

Figure 2 shows the graph in the x y plane of the function f of x = the absolute value of 2x,

end absolute value, + 4. There are equally spaced tick marks along the x axis and along the y

axis. The first tick mark to the right of the origin, and the first tick mark above the origin, are

both labeled 1.

The graph of the function f is in the shape of the letter V. It is above the x axis and is symmetric

with respect to the y axis.

The lowest point on the graph of f is the point 0 comma 4 on the y axis.

Going leftward from the point 0 comma 4 the graph of fis a line that slants upward, passing

through the point negative 2 comma 8.

Going rightward from the point 0 comma 4 the graph of f is a line that slants upward, passing

through the point 2 comma 8.

End skippable figure description.

2. Figure 2 above shows the graph of a function f, defined by f of x

= the absolute value of 2x, end absolute value, + 4 for all numbers x. For which of the following

functions g defined for all numbers x does the graph of g intersect the graph of f?

A. g of x = x minus 2

B. g of x = x + 3

C. g of x = 2x minus 2

D. g of x = 2x + 3

E. g of x = 3x minus 2

Answer: E ( g of x = 3x minus 2)

Multiple‐Choice Questions — Select One or More Answer Choices

These questions are multiple‐choice questions that ask you to select one or more answer

choices from a list of choices. A question may or may not specify the number of choices to select.

Sample Questions

Directions: Select one or more answer choices according to the specific question

directions.

If the question does not specify how many answer choices to select,

select all that apply.

The correct answer may be just one of the choices or may be as

many as all of the choices, depending on the question.

No credit is given unless you select all of the correct choices and no

others.

If the question specifies how many answer choices to select, select

exactly that number of choices.

C. f is a factor of h minus g.

Answer: A (f is a factor of g squared), B (f is a factor of gh.), and C (f is a factor of

h minus g)

Numeric Entry Questions

Questions of this type ask you either to enter the answer as an integer or a decimal in a

single answer box or to enter it as a fraction in two separate boxes — one for the numerator and

one for the denominator. In the computer‐administered test, the computer mouse and keyboard

are used to enter the answer.

Sample Questions

Directions: Enter your answer in the answer box(es) below the question.

Equivalent forms of the correct answer, such as 2.5 and 2.50, are all

correct. Fractions do not need to be reduced to lowest terms.

Enter the exact answer unless the question asks you to round your

answer.

1. If x = 10 to the power negative 1, what is the value of

open parenthesis, x + the fraction 1 over x, close parenthesis, times, open

parenthesis, 1 over x, close parenthesis?

Answer Box

Answer: 101

2. A university admitted 100 students who transferred from other institutions. Of these

students, 34 transferred from two‐year community colleges, 25 transferred from private

four‐year institutions, and the rest transferred from public four‐year institutions. If two different

students are to be selected at random from the 100 students, what is the probability that both

students selected will be students who transferred from two‐year community colleges?

Give your answer as a fraction.

Fraction answer boxes

Answer: 17 over 150 (or any equivalent fraction).
