Here’s a Mathematics MCQ with Answers for a late-night revision

Mathematics/Maths/Algebra/Geometry/Arithmetic there is no nice way of saying it. Yes, we recognize why they are called ‘problems’ but they teach you something you just cannot escape. There is no way you can live without mathematics. You can be an artist and still have to pay taxes and do calculations that require your entire attention. There is a saying ‘the faster you run from your problems the quicker they catch up to you’ so instead of avoiding mathematics like most do, let us face it with a brave front (it is ok to cry about mathematics by the way).

For those of you that do like mathematics and those that dread it, this is the perfect time to revise before your exams. We have lined up an interesting maths MCQ with answers for you, that pans across every maths chapter in ICSE and maths chapters in CBSE. You not only test your knowledge but also learn something if you happen to fall back. Keep your rough notebook and textbook ready! Let’s go:

    Respected Madam,

    I am writing this e-mail with immense happiness and gratitude. To see Niharica improve slowly and steadily has given me a lot of confidence that she will do well in her academics even in her higher classes. She now reads very well and independently. She also remembers things better. Her writing has improved as well.

    I would like to thank you mam for your patience, understanding and encouragement. I would also thank the school management for having such a set up where the kids can be given special attention to improve in the areas that they are weak in.

    Mam, I am sure that with your guidance Niharica will have a wholesome growth. Thank you once again.

    Yours sincerely,
