Collection is very good for practicing and learning the various usage of already known concepts. However, some questions are suffering from problem such as typo error while some others are just poorly constructed questions. It means that the questions are not that difficult but rather they are controversial.
Also, what makes these SC questions difficult is not the concept but the picking of a better one out of the final two options, and which are in few cases not provided with a justifiable explanation.

Though I really appreciate the effort of the creator of the collection. Thanks.
