The highway from Ipswich to Rodway is currently overcrowded with traffic, which deters potential customers from visiting Rodway's stores. The congestion has gotten so bad that many of the stores in Rodway are struggling to survive. Meanwhile, in Ipswich, the stores are thriving since they widened...

In how many ways can 3 men and their wives be made stand in a line such that none of the 3 men stand in a position that is ahead of his wife?

Let the families be Mr and Mrs A, B and C. Let us first arrange AABBCC in 6! / 2!2!2! ways. Now this gives us two positions for each family. Within those two positions, there is only one way to arrange (WH) and hence that is the answer.  @Nipun008

*The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders responded with a competing plan of their own, a proposal for a shared stadium in Carson.* Is this sentence correct?

@technorati  Not necessarily. Both are acceptable.

In fact, there is a school of thought (to which I emphatically do NOT belong) which says that the use of a semi-colon is show-off-y and should be avoided (this is the same bunch of people who try to simplify Philosopher's Stone to Sorceror's Stone, losing the whole point of the name).

Me, I think that a semi-colon adds richness to the texture of the language; if it was good enough for Wodehouse and Tolkien, it is good enough for me, thank you very much

@scrabbler I have a doubt regarding para completion questions. Nowadays I'm encountering many questions in which if I look for the source article I find that the oa although follows the given statements but it doesn't complete the paragraph. So I end up choosing another option which seems to end ...

Where are you encountering these questions? Because some question-setters don't know the correct meaning of the word "paragraph". If you are using those people's questions, then I cannot help you. Nor will they help you in CAT.

Lots of manual effort and use of the inclusion-exclusion principle. Probably not worth doing for more than 3 people! @Nipun008

@Nipun008  let us agree to disagree then. Because that would not be my assumption in the example you quoted.

Besides, if you want to use that as an analogy, then my assumption parallel to option B would be "you already know that that book is very good" (and that is CERTAINLY not an assumption I would make)

Anyway we seem to have different opinions of what constitutes an assumption, and I am no expert in this topic so will retire from the discussion without confusing the issue further
