The point is simple-->

No matter where the institute is located, it is an IIM. IIM. And IIM Shillong sounds pretty good too And as far as the infrastrructure and all are concerned, my take is that they are not at all a problem as IIM S would walk in the shoes of IIM I, which was originally a single block of building!

And looking at the way the Indian business is roaring, the placements in IIMS would soon pickup. Probably earlier than what some people have guessed it here... 3-4 years?

Shillong is definitely a good place to have an IIM unless people would get bored with hills, rains and beautiful nature. With an IIM around, the city sure is going to improve. Now, this will take some time... but anyway all this doesn't matter cos--> we are havaing an IIM!

I'm not really sure how many would call this an RGIIM. I prefer an 'IIM-S' You know.. IIMS sounds more royal than RGIIM!

Hi All,
1) A majority of the students are hard workers.
2) A majority of the students works hard.
3) A majority of voters wants to unseat the incumbent.
Is the usage of singular/plural in all the 3 sentences correct?
Pls provide the answer with reasons.
Thanks,
Neeraj


Neeraj,

1) A majority of the students are hard workers - (here, hard workers are students).
Here, you are directly referring to the students. So, it has got to be a plural. See it this way - "Students are hard workers".

The same concept applies to the below two sentences also. Except that the verb takes a singular form when the subject is plural and vice-versa.

2) A majority of students work hard.
3) A majority of voters want to unseat the incumbent.

Cheers,
technogeek

I don't think so because no matter wht the diameter is by the law of hysics in an intreconnected vessel . the level of water is always same so effectively the volume becomes double.


Also, it is not given in the question if the second container has any leaks or outlet pipes... so how can the time of filling be same for containers having outlet and a container which doesn't ?
A tank has 5 inlet pipes....
....the volume of the connecting pipe as negligible.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm specifically looking at an answer for the second question...!

Q1. 8000 litres.
Q2. 160 hrs.

For the second question, is there any significance for the diameter of the pipe given here?

As in, a very thin pipe would take longer time (until certain increasing diameter) to transfer the contents when compared to a very thick pipe right?
A tank has 5 inlet pipes. Two of the inlet pipe are of same capacity and each one of them fill the tank at rate of 20 litres per hour when working independently. The reaming three inlet pipes are of similar type and each of them fill the tank at rate of them fill the tank at 40 litres/ hour. There are 10 outlet pipes attached to the tank which are of two types. The first type which are 2 in numbers empty the tank at rate of 10 litres/ hour each when working independently. The second type are 8 in numbers and each one of them empty the tank at rate of 5 litres per hour. When all the inlet and outlet pipes are working together it takes
80 hours for the tank to fill.

Q1. What is the capacity of the tank.
Q2. If bottom of another tank of similar capacity is connected to the bottom of first tank with a pipe of diameter 10 cms , in how many hours will the two tanks get full if all the above mentioned inlet and outlet pipes are working. Consider the volume of the connecting pipe as negligible.

I tried thanking twice by using two different methods, and it said you can't thank twice.

great going guys! looks like IIM-B is all set to receive a score of bangy junta this time around to eat their heads! ATB!!


A rather absurd and out-of-context doubt. Sorry if it pisses of anyone:

prem_ravi, how did you thank twice in this post?

The mistake in the second option, B, is redundancy of information:

B) the annual cost of illiteracy to the United States is at least $20 billion a year because of lost industrial output and tax revenues.
Bloody this! screwed my night :angry: :lookroun:Nevertheless, an interesting problem
