Data Interpretation (DI) has been a vital section of the CAT Paper. In the changed scenario of the CAT exam pattern (where there are only two sections), DI forms a critical part of the Quantitative Ability and Data Interpretation Section. Therefore, it is essential to develop your skills in DI to the level where you can comfortably attempt the DI questions.
