Since, XAT 2022 is a single session exam, it is easy for XLRI to publish the XAT answer keys 2022 for all the XAT questions as against the exams which are held in multiple sessions on multiple days.

So effectively, there are only three important sections for which XAT answer keys are released by XLRI.
