For e.g. if you are getting a question of 600 level wrong, you will not get a 700 level question most of the times. Does it mean no matter what kind of question it is (CR/SC/RC), it will be of low level ?

Or does it mean if you are getting a question of 600 level wrong of a type say CR, and hence you will not get a 700 level question of that type.

Could you please clarify in case you know this!!

The GMAT is a question adaptive exam. The question format is irrelevant (except for content balancing). There are other constraints, but none that test takers need to be concerned about.

A quick way to understand question selection is this: the GMAT generates an estimate of a test taker's ability after every single question, on the basis of all questions attempted till that point (excluding experimental questions). That estimate is what is used to select subsequent questions. The test taker's section score is the ability estimate after the final question.

Also, the GMAT measures difficulty on a continuous scale. The 200-800 scale is not used internally.
