IIFT 2018 General Knowledge Questions Answers and Expected Cutoff

IIFT 2018 was conducted today. Given below are the images for the questions from the IIFT General Knowledge section. I think the General Knowledge section was not exceptionally hard and it was on the usual pattern. I think the cutoff for the General Knowledge section is bound to be around 3-4 questions. So, if you solved 3-4 questions in the IIFT GK section and had no errors, you should be able to clear the sectional cutoff. However, for someone who was well prepared with General Knowledge section – he/she should be able to solve 8-10 questions in the GK section.

Cutoff for IIFT GK 2018 should be around 1.5

One important fact to consider is the fact that the total number of questions has gone down to 18 from 25-30 over the past few years. In 2018 also, GK had 18 questions but they were a lot harder. Cutoff for GK was ~1 marks last year and  I expect it to be around 1.5 this year.
Easy questions in IIFT GK 2018 that everyone should have attempted and got right – 97, 98, 99, 101, 109, 112

Medium level questions in IIFT GK 2018 that should have been answered by good students – 104, 106, 110, 111, 113, 114
