Isn't the solution for Q.92 wrong? How is C addressing all the things mentioned in the solution? No wonder only 7% of the people attempting it got it correct

shashank krishnakumar @superkk 224

TIME VA solutions make little or no sense.But C is correct IMO.A and D can be eliminated.We can infer B from the first para,but the last sentence 'Was it just a .....and a woman' suggests that C is correct.

Ankita @ankita.13 7

B says that Spivak is mentioned to support the contention that Derrida gave a voice to the depressed segments. However, how can simply translating a piece of work give a voice to someone? If you read the sentence 'And by the end of that decade,Derrida had been taken up by disciplines across the humanities...........' and then read the last line as 'Was it just a coincidence that his first major American translator, Gayatri Spivak'+blah blah+'was an Indian-born US transplant and a woman?', you can say that the author is stressing the identity of the person who first attempted to translate the work.

diameter of circle =diagonal of square , 2r=rt2(side of square )

side of square =2r/rt2

Devraj Höm Roy @devraj99 671

side of the octa = 2*a*tan45/2 = 2*a*(sin45 / 1+cos45) = 2r / rt2+1

Area of octa = 8a^2/1+rt2

Area of square = 2a^2

ratio = 4 : rt2+1 ?

A. It also made clear that economic ideology in the service of capitalism does not need logic on its side!

B. The debate on capital theory was logically won with its devastating implications for standard theory, and yet nothing changed in the profession!

C. In this demolition job of neoclassical capital theory, Joan Robinson again became a main player, and popularised its implications for economic theory through her writings.

D. In disgust, Joan Robinson picked up the word “mumpsimus”, which means a traditional notion that is obstinately held although it is unreasonable.

E. Business continued as usual, because the vested intellectual interest in standard neoclassical economics as a worldwide industry was too great.

How sure are you, because if wht u are saying is true, then it defeats the purpose of making the correspondence guys book their slots online prior to a test.

CL mock 10.. such an easy mock with so many sitters and I managed to screw it.. OA-124  (QA- 26C,4W VA- 21C, 13W  )

1. Decided to start with VA- bad decision

2. Mouse was not working properly. I wasn't able to figure out whether I need to double click or single click and had to click 8-10 times for every answer.

3. A friend was calling continuously in ast 15mins of my test and phn was on vibrations..

well, still it's no time to give excuses,you never know how the D-day would be.. But I am really disappointed after this mock..

Hello. @The_Statesman @Messerschmitt My profile is this: I am yet to take the GMAT but I am averaging a score of 690 on practice tests. I have very good acads (90%+ in 10th and 12th) and a CGPA of 8.3. I am currently in my final year of B.E. Computer Science. Extra-curricular: I have a technology-blog where I have written over 50 articles and done SEO and have made $500 via affiliate commissions. I am a freelance writer on and have made $600 writing articles there (does this count as work experience? ). I have also written a Kindle e-book (100 pages) which has made around 100 sales on the Amazon store. 

Would you say that I am likely to be selected since my profile is quite versatile and acads are good too?

  • Also no major academic achievements or adversities faced .... 8h.

Also no major academic achievements or adversities faced in life to speak of (just a regular dude).

Excess inventory, a massive (large in scope or degree "the feeling of frustration, of being ineffectual, is massive David Halberstam") problem for many businesses, has several causes, some of which are unavoidable. Overstocks may accumulate through production overruns (a run in excess of the quantity ordered by a customer) or errors. Certain styles and colors prove unpopular. With some products-computers and software, toys, and books-last year's models are difficult to move even at huge discounts. Occasionally the competition introduces a better product. But in many cases the public's buying tastes simply change, leaving a manufacturer or distributor with thousands (or millions) of items that the fickle public no longer wants.

One common way to dispose of (dispose of: v.处理) this merchandise is to sell it to a liquidator, who buys as cheaply as possible and then resells the merchandise through catalogs, discount stores, and other outlets (an agency (as a store or dealer) through which a product is marketed "retail outlets"). However, liquidators may pay less for the merchandise than it cost to make it. Another way to dispose of excess inventory is to dump it.

Hi Puys,

I would like to share some info regarding CAT 2014 registration.

a) Please make sure that the Caste Certi that u upload is in either English or Hindi. If not, then download the SC/ST caste certificate from the CAT website and get that attested by any of the officials mentioned in the second sheet of the downloaded copy. U can fill he details like ur name, caste etc. with ur hand, need not be typed.

b) Make sure that ur Caste certi is SELF-ATTESTED. If not, u will be required to register again.(I had to do this:(....)

c) If it is the student who makes mistake while registering, then they will not reimburse the amount and u will have to register again.

d) After u have registered and made the payment successfully, plz call up the Cat helpline number(1800 210 0151) to ensure that ur application and Caste certi are valid.( U need to do this coz they will not notify you that ur caste certi is invalid. U need to call them up to find out abt it)
