Note: GMAT Quant questions cover Problem Solving, and so much more. Be sure to use our GMAT Practice Test to test your knowledge of these concepts.
On the GMAT Quantitative section, the Problem Solving questions are just the familiar five-choice multiple choice math problems you have seen on every standardized test since well before puberty. Here, you have discovered a veritable treasure chest of Problem Solving sample questions.
Below is a link to thirty-two different articles on this blog, each with at least two Problem Solving questions. The sample GMAT Problem Solving questions are often at the top of the article, although sometimes they are further down in the text. The total number of sample Problem Solving problems available from this page is far more than 37, the total number of math questions you will see on a full Quantitative section of the GMAT.
In each blog, the solutions & explanations to the sample questions are at the ends of the articles. (If the topic is less than crystal clear for you, you may find the article itself enlightening.)

Addendum to the table: A special note on Sentence Correction questions
Sentence Correction questions are the very shortest questions on the test, both in terms of word count and time. Ideally, you should complete any SC question in less than one minute. Make sure you set your speed for this question type carefully. And be aware that Sentence Correction questions do NOT have their own subsection in GMAT Verbal; instead, SC is mixed in with Critical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension on the GMAT.
