This question arises from the fact that preliminary exam has aptitude paper in which some questions based on logic and reasoning, analytical skills and reasoning ability are asked. Students from mathematics background may find them easier to answer. Given the type and nature of questions asked in the last three years, it can be said that even candidates with social science background can answer them, if they apply their mind as these are basic and fundamental questions, not requiring much mathematical background.
