Till last year these portion were part of Tier-2 English question paper. Rest of the chapters were same like 3 questions each from sentence improvement, error detection, Idioms and phrases,Antonyms, synonyms, one word substitution and spelling check etc. Synonyms and antonyms were on tougher side(phrasal verb, antonyms, synonyms were on tougher side than rest of portions).

Quantitative Aptitude(Mathematics) was a bit calculative considering the fact that SSC has reduced the exam duration  from 75 Minutes to 60 Minutes. So you need to be very selective while you attempt this section. It is always a wise decision to skip lengthy question for the last otherwise it can ruin your paper as a whole. There was one DI consists of tabular graph having 5 questions(Questions were calculative). Apart from DI, 2-3 question each were from Algebra, geometry, time and work, trigonometry, mensuration, S.I&C.I, profit loss etc.
