GRE Quantitative Practice Questions — Quantitative Comparison Format

Available here are four GRE Quantitative practice questions, all in the Quantitative Comparison format (where you compare two quantities and decide which, if either, is greater).

NOTE: During the actual exam, each Quantitative Reasoning section will include several questions in this format, mixed with questions in three other basic formats.

Scroll down each page for an explanatory answer to the question at hand. The link to Directions returns you to this page. This is not a timed test. But if you want to simulate GRE testing conditions, limit yourself to 1¾ minutes per question, on average.


Compare Quantity A and Quantity B. Use additional, centered information (if any) to make the comparison. Select one of four answer choices:

A. Quantity A is greater.

B. Quantity B is greater.

C. The quantities are equal.

D. The relationship cannot be determined from the
      information given.

NOTE: Any symbol appearing more than once in a question has the same meaning throughout the question.


All numbers used are real numbers.

All figures lie on a plane unless otherwise indicated.

All lines shown as straight are straight.

All angle measures are positive.

Figures are intended to provide useful information for answering the questions. However, unless a figure is accompanied by a "Note" stating that it is drawn to scale, answer the question using your knowledge of mathematics and not by visual measurement or estimation.
