Sorry guys!!!

I had no time.
As you have already understood, it's not allowed to upload file with the questions.

but you can definitely use google to find the file. It will take you 10 min.

This questions are very good to increase your speed and prepare yourself for any type of surprises in SC.
Good luck!!!

PS. I`ve copied all questions from the site, so it's not real Gmat questions.
