    • Hi Saksham
      The answer key for slot 1, 2, 3 is as per data from various places and inputs of the live tool. We (and all who have been helped by the key) are very thankful to you if you had made the key for slot 1. With the CAT 2020 being a not so great paper for many candidates, the memory based key is a small way of reducing anxiety. Hopefully, the official keys will be out soon and everyone will have a better idea of how things went.

      Wish you the very best of luck for your result!
