153+ CAT RC [Reading Comprehension] Practice Questions

One of the most frequently asked questions by a CAT aspirant is how to practice Reading Comprehension Passages and from where. Reading Comprehension is one of the most dreaded areas of CAT Verbal Ability [VARC]. CAT RC preparation needs patience and practice. In other words, improvement in RCs can be seen only in retrospect.

The Reading Comprehension passages that have come in past year CAT papers are the best source for CAT RC preparation. Apart from this students can also refer to GMAT, GRE and LSAT passages, which are tougher than the CAT RCs. In fact, there is no scarcity of online resources to practice and prepare from.

However, it is very important that the student sticks to one resource and completes it before moving on to the others. You must remember that collecting PDFs and videos is not the solution to the problem.

The next important point is that blind practicing will never result in improvements. Since the VARC section of CAT is not very easy, the CAT reading comprehension practice passages must be of a higher difficulty. Also, there must be good explanations to the questions. This will help you in fine-tuning your approach and work out a strategy that best suits your reading speed.

We have designed a page that has reading comprehension exercises with answers. The passages are divided into different categories:

  • Business and economics
  • Science and technology
  • Social sciences and philosophy.

Furthermore, the reading comprehension examples have been divided into short passages and long passages, similar to the ones that came in past year CAT papers. These are some of the tough reading comprehension passages that you must solve to hone your RC skills.

Tips on how to solve CAT Reading Comprehension

  • Don’t get into the minor details of the passage; just focus on what each paragraph has to say
  • As you read, create a map of the passage; you must remember what thing is located wherein the passage
  • Once you read the question, come back to the part of the passage that is likely to have the answer
  • Compare the options and eliminate the incorrect choices based on the evidence that you see in the passage
  • Choose the answer once you are convinced of the right choice
