Guys, in the test guide it's mentioned that 'If you do not understand a question on the test, you should answer the question to the best of your ability. Details on negative marking and penalty for UNANSWERED QUESTIONS will be shared closer to the test day.' Any thoughts on this?

@kalpeshj as of now nothing is certain. It might just be a copy-paste job from another guide (TCS conducts several tests after all) or it might be genuine. We will be told more as the test date nears, presumably. Till then, don't panic and prepare contingency plans for all eventualities

@sherlockk Until they give us more information, it is useless to make any kind of plan. Based on the last time we had reliable info (the paper-based days) only raw score matters, accuracy is only about avoiding the -1 and does not carry any extra penalty.

Until/unless they clarify further (and differently) I personally am going to assume that will continue to be the case. I will try to get as close to 100 attempts as I can (without wild guessing, mind you!) as that is the strategy that works for me.

Your guess is as good as mine, though, and you are welcome to follow a different strategy accordingly!

@Nipun008  No flooding in the region is fine. We are using flooding as a noun here and the "in the region" is to indicate where that happened. Flooding of the region would give me the impression that someone intentionally flooded it.

@Dark_Passenger  I don't bother with trying to outguess CAT They have 40 years of experience in sadism. Any of this might be true. However, point # 3  seems unlikely as that would give a perceived advantage to the folks allotted 22nd.

If there is one thing I have learned from CAT, it is to be flexible in expectations, to be ready to change strategy at the drop of a hat. Have a strategy by all means, but be ready to ditch it at a moment's notice if the paradigm shifts.

@jaskarn  We don't *want* anything new. It is a "summary" question, not a "complete the theme". Complete the theme question type was introduced in CAT much later
