Hi, I have been solving GMAT official quant 700 level level questions, mainly DS, from 1 month of practice I got to know that GMAT doesn't real checking my quant skills, rather it is really testing my general aptitude and level of attentiveness.

Am I thinking right about it?

Why would you say that?
Your general aptitude and level of attentiveness is tested throughout the exam and just not in Quant.
All the questions are related to some topic and you got to know number properties, probability, combinations, and various other topics, so surely quant skills are a must even on DS.

You will have to elaborate on what exactly you mean by it.

Yes, it was my bad for not stating the question clearly. I was talking only about quant section, especially DS. Before solving the questions, I was expecting a bit long methods to solve the problems, as we used to do in our schools. But later realized that it was more of a "attentiveness" demanding section. Most questions can be solved quickly, and pay attention to the question, by not missing key details such as "x is a prime or x is a positive integer". I felt a bit comfortable with the questions and got to know they are testing my quant skills but also my reasoning skills equally.

Yes, I agree. DS questions test not only your math skills but also your reasoning skills. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out.
