[Reveal] Spoiler:
O(3.2) = 5 (notice that we must round up pretty far)

E(–1.7) = 0 (remember that the 0 is larger than –1.7)

o(–1.3) = –3 (we have to round down pretty far, and –3 is less than –1.3)

e(2.7) = 2

5 + 0 + (–3) + 2 = 4

Confusing like hell
I wont like to see this kind of problem during last 10 mins of the quants section. Very easy to make mistakes if u r in a hurry.
Level may be 700 but definitely not over 720; since most of the 700+ questions tests multiple concepts and are quite complex. This one meets both criteria but is not so complex.
