MAT Data Interpretation and Sufficiency (DI & DS)

There were about 10 questions on DS and all were relatively easy. For PT students they were the familiar type I with four options. The directions looked like :

Mark Answer
1 If statement A alone gives an answer, but B does not.
2 If statement B alone gives an answer, but A does not.
3 If neither A nor B is sufficient but, a combination of both is.
4 More data Required.

DI questions too were simple though they had variety. In the DI section there were two question sets based on Pie Charts, one question set based on horizontal graphs, another based on tabular information etc. Questions were:
