Similar problem I faced earlier and I made the same mistake. I didn't consider right angle symbol while solving the question.

And in another problem only box was mentioned and answer was provided taking shape of box rectangular.

So seeing such problems frequently, I have one question.

Should I always consider symbols and shapes as they are given in question in which nothing specifically mentioned?

Expert please help me not repeat the same mistake.

Hi

gvij2017I am no expert. However, I would suggest to follow the below link and guidelines provided in

OG.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/gmat-trick-r ... 01412.htmlOFFICIAL GUIDE:Problem SolvingFigures: All figures accompanying problem solving questions are intended to provide information useful in solving the problems. Figures are drawn as accurately as possible. Exceptions will be clearly noted. Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight. The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero. All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.

Data Sufficiency:Figures:

• Figures conform to the information given in the question, but will not necessarily conform to the additional information given in statements (1) and (2).

• Lines shown as straight are straight, and lines that appear jagged are also straight.

• The positions of points, angles, regions, etc., exist in the order shown, and angle measures are greater than zero.

• All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.
