Although it is not true 100% but most often GMAT preferably goes for the short and concise answers, so you can put your bet on it when you have to guess.

If you are provides with an equation, then just put one of the given variables in it and check whether it fits or not, if no then go with the next one. It can also help you eliminate other possible answers. Such as if you choose a middle answer, say 15, the result comes out to be too low, then you can easily eliminate the lower options, say 7 and 11 and go with the other one.
  4. While giving the test a double sided laminated scratch pad will be provided to you, on which you can write on with the help of a marker. All the GMAT coaching centres in Chennai will encourage you to make the best use of this pad.
