The DILR section was for CAT 2016 was a bit easier in terms of the amount of calculation or logic. However, it was certainly lengthy and more time to consume. VARC, the first section in CAT 2016 paper had 5 passages of RC for 24 Questions overall. It was a pleasant surprise as the RC passages were not very long and quite a few questions were direct.
