I hope you are doing well.

A month from now, I have to appear in a GMAT-like exam in a local university. I tried previous year but I scored really low in their maths section because it contained questions like below. My question is that what is the best resource to master such questions (a resource that contains tips and tricks to master such questions and also contains lot of practice questions). All help is really appreciated.
