Figures Drawn to Scale - General Quant Question  [#permalink]

Hi All - I've been working through the OG and have run into an issue that I believe there is likely an easy answer for. Should I always assume that figures are NOT drawn to scale? I've noticed that in some cases it is explicitly noted that a figure is not drawn to scale, but in other cases the note is not included. I read in the "Test Taking Strategies" section of the OG that figures are not necessarily drawn to scale, which to me means that even if a figure does not explicitly say it is not drawn to scale, it still could be the case that it is not drawn to scale.

More generally, I'm looking for guidance on the best practice with regards to questions in the OG and on the real test involving figures that are / are not drawn to scale.

Thanks for your help and please let me know if I can clarify.

On the GMAT, all diagrams posed as Problem Solving questions can be assumed to be drawn to scale, unless otherwise specified.
However, diagrams posed as Data Sufficiency questions cannot be assumed to be drawn to scale.

Here's a video on the topic of what can and cannot be assumed:
