Hi ppl, as this thread has become too long I think my post has not been seen by many ppl. I'm reposting it as I really need to know the ans to my query.

I was writing a mock. Found a question which, I'm pretty sure, has all the wrong options. I'm posting the question and would like your help in solving it. The question is :
Five distinct vowels are to be transmitted through a communication channel along with 10 blanks (spaces) with atleast two blanks in between every two vowels. The no. of ways this can be done is :
A. 3003
B. 3600
C. 4320
D. 1800

The ans that I got is 2520.

1) How many attempts you have made?
Section 1-19-20, a very poor time management:banghead:
Section 2- 26 :-(

2) Your last mock score?
hovered from 76 percentile to 95 percentile in aimcats and around 98-99 percentile in simcats.

3) How was your experience of the test?
One tip, pls wear a full sleeve shirt and a full pant to the xam. Surprisingly there were too many mosquitoes under my seat. Asked the prometric guys 4 times to use a good night machine, finally they brought a kala hit and sprayed it all around. Also u can reduce the brightness of the screen for less strain

4) What was the surprise element for you?
None

5) Any tips to handle the computer based exam better?
Nothing as such. Switch off the monitor while seating idle in the waiting hour.

6) Your overall analysis of the exam: Toughness, new topics, sections etc.
QA:It was actually very easy, but somehow I wasted a lot of time. I found a very simple sitter and solved it, but the ans was not among the options. Checked it three times.
DI: Rather than calculating exact values, try to interpret the increase or decrease of the values, u'll solve it faster. One set was very easy, one was moderate and one was calculation intensive.
LR: Very very simple. Hold ur nerves and u'll get through it easily.
VA: It was moderate. The RCs were understandable.

7) Any other details or something you would like to share -
Have already shared everything, All the best.
