  • ‘Decision making’ is an exclusive topic of XAT exam, which is meant to test the exam takers’ ability of problem-solving in a limited period of time. Decision-making questions are posed to examine how a candidate uses his ethics and morals in problem-solving and his understanding of the contemporary world and business affairs. Decision-making questions are given in both mathematics and reasoning topics.
