Here are a couple one from the same set ... since all these questions are appearing right at the start, I assume tht these should be relatively simpler .. but i haven't seen such kind of questions previously and not sure about the approach to follow .... experts please guide me .. may be it will benefit few others
Simple hai yar :
+ (-3) (-9) 0
---|------------
4 | 1 -5 4
10 | 7 +1 10
5 2 -4 +5

so answer is 5, 3rd option.

Question (2)
As per the question when the tree is planted it is 4ft tall. After which it grows
at a uniform rate.
0th year --> 4 ft
1st year --> 4+x
2nd year --> 4+2x
3rd year --> 4+3x
4th year --> 4+4x
5th year --> 4+5x
6th year --> 4+6x
It is given that at the end of the 6th year, the tree was 1/5th taller
than it was at the end of the 4th year.
--> 4+6x = 1/5 (4+4x) + (4+4x)
Solve to get x = 2/3
ANSWER IS 2/3.
------------------------------------------------------------
Question (1):-
Statement 1 ->16 students at the school study both French and Japanese.
This only tells that 16= 4/100 (Total Students). We will therefore we be able to find the Total Number of Students as 400. However, this is NOT SUFFICIENT as it does not provide us any information about how many french students are there to compare with the no. of japanese students.
Statement 2 -> 10 percent of the students at the school who study japanese also study french. This statement is SUFFICIENT. Reasoning given below:-
10/100 (Japanese Students) = 4/100 (French Students)
--> J = 4F
This information is sufficient to find out which number of students is higher.
(Note the 4/100 (french students) is already given in the question).
ANSWER IS (B) - STATEMENT 2 ALONE IS SUFFICIENT.

Thanks a lot for your explanation
For the 1st question i thought 4+6x = 1/5 (4+4x) equation applies... just got corrected

Can Somebody help me with this.. the CR questions where in we have to select the statements which the writer might have assumed before writing it are troubling me. No matter whatever I assume always happens to be incorrect. Please guide me on how to crack this type of questions?
