The problem of traffic congestion in Athens has been testing the ingenuity of politiciansand town planners for years. But the measures adapted to date have not succeeded indecreasing the number of cars on the road in the city centre. In 1980, odds and evensnumber-plate legislation was introduced under which odd and even plates were bannedin the city centre on alternate days thereby expecting to halve the number of cars in thecity centre. Then in 1993 it was decreed that all cars in use in the city centre must befitted with catalytic converters, the only condition being that the buyer of such a 'clean'car offered for destruction, a car at least 15-years old.Which one of the following options if true would best support the claim that themeasures adopted to date have not succeeded?

1. In the 1980s, many families purchased second cars with the requisite odd or even number plate.
2. In the mid-1990s, many families found it feasible to become first-time car owners by buying a car more than 15 years old and turning it in for a new car with catalytic converters.
3. Post-1993, many families found it feasible to become first-time car owners by buying a car more than 15-years old and buy 'clean' cars from the open market, even if it meant for going the import tax subsidy.
4. All of the above

I thinks u need to give more attention to section 2 

i don't think you give more than 40 minutes to section 2 . Being on a same boat as you when it comes to section 2, I would suggest you to attempt the verbal logic questions- FIJ's , PJ's PC's and the LR part too (these are the questions that saves my grace in AIMCATs and actual CAT ) . Also I would suggest you to be a bit patient while attempting questions in section 2, if 30 more seconds per question can improve ur accuracy then give that damn question 30 more seconds . Just don't be in a hurry to finish a question .

These are the things that I keep in mind while attemting section 2 (anyone might disagree )

Find the no of ways in which 16 chocolates can be distributed among 4 kids such that each kid get a minimum of 2 chocolates and a maximum of 6 chocolates.

Solution : a+b+c+d=16 

min=2 and max=6 

a'+b'+c'+d'=16-8=8 

so total cases = 8+4-1C4-1=11c3

now ...

a''+b'+c'+d'=8-5=3

so ways= 3+4-1C3-1=6C3 

4*6C3

answer= 11c3-4*6C3

Similar question with a diffrent set of values just for the understanding purpose

Find the no of ways in which 12 chocolates can be distributed among 4 kids such that each kid get a minimum of 1 chocolates and a maximum of 5 chocolates.

a+b+c+d=12

a'+b'+c'+d'=12-4 (minimum 1 ka case...)

so

a'+b'+c'+d'=8 .. yeh 8+4-1C4-1=11C3 ...

nw second condition is max=5 

so 5+1=6 is nt acceptable ..!!

a''+b'+c'+d'=8-5=3

a''+b'+c'+d' can be arranged in 3+4-1C4-1= 6C3 ways ..!! this will be valid for b c d as well !

so 11C3-4*6c3

if 6 is not allowed shouldn't it be 8-6=a+b+c+d??=5c2(as we are trying to subtract all the impossible cases?) then 4 cases so 4*5c2?

you would need your original caste certificate and need to convinvce the revenue inspector to sign on the certificate . he might need some proof of u being non creamy though . the whole procedure is likely to take round 2 weeks

@MrRohitKumar
