DIRECTIONS for question: Each of the following questions has a paragraph from which the last sentence has been deleted. From the given options, choose the sentence that completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way. 

Lengthy protection, it is argued, increases the incentive to create. Digital technology seems to strengthen the argument: by making copying easier, it seems to demand greater protection in return. The idea of extending copyright also has a moral appeal. Intellectual property can seem very like real property, especially when it is yours, and not some faceless corporation's. As a result people feel that once they own it - especially if they have made it - they should go on owning it, much as they would a house that they could pass on to their descendants. On this reading, protection should be perpetual ._____________________________________

Identify easy, average and typical questions

The paper of CAT is set in a very smart way. It is the technique of students that how they identify easy, average and typical questions of the paper. There are many questions that can be answered by solving up to two or three steps. These questions always raise your percentile and saves times for other questions that are typical. If you have analyzed difficult questions then don't just waste your precious time on them, leave them and move to the other questions. When you are sure that you have completed all these questions then it is a good time to solve difficult questions. Also your raised confidence will help you to solve them easily.

Apply different methods

As there may be some situations where you will not be able to solve problems by your learnt method. So don't just stick to a single method, try all the methods you can apply for the question. Few questions are not method based so for then use hit and trail method to crack them. Applying all possible methods will raise your chances of solving any problem.

Optimize your time

I am not joking but problems of CAT exam is not that much tough. If you spend some time on them, you will easily find their solution. So what is the key ingredient that creates so much difference in your percentile and toppers percentile. It is your optimization of time. You will be given specific time for doing complete test and how you use your time? How quickly you solve problems is all what we call CAT EXAM?

Elimination of odd choices

Sometimes we find stupid options for few problems. These stupid options are kept there to waste your time because you will think about them for few seconds surely. Try to be mature (Not over mature) in the exam. You should be at least this much smart that you don't waste your time in thinking about these options. As you find these options in the problem, just eliminate them and start focusing on the rest ones.

Use shortcuts

You should memorize all the general and shortcut formulas of mathematics so that you can quickly answer any question by using them. With shortcuts you can save lots of you precious time.

Candidate Identification Affidavit may not be absolutely necessary Gaurav. You need to show either your Passport, PAN Card, Driving License, etc...these are the primary evidences. Candidate Identification Affidavit is also one of the options like them to prove that you are Mr. Gaurav and that you live in such and such a place (address), etc....that is all.....no need to panic regarding Candidate Identification Affidavit. But do keep it ready and let it come handy to you!!!!!!

1. The operation is what has to be done to one



proposition in order to make other out of it.



2. Structure of proposition stands in internal



relations to one another.



3. In order to give prominence to these internal



relations we can adopt the following mode of



expression: we can represent a proposition as



the result of an operation that produces it out



of other propositions (which are bases of the



operation).



4. An operation is the expression of a relation



between the structure of its result and of its



bases.



A. 2 - 3 - 4 - 1 B. 1 - 2 - 3 - 4



C. 4 - 3 - 1 - 2 D. 2 - 1 - 3 - 4



E. 4 - 1 - 2 - 3

Though now a call depends on your profile too, but still aim for around 90%ile to be on the safer side. Some candidates even convert their calls at 70%ile, but then don't be lured by that minimum%ile.

Vimal has an electrical watch with a 12 hour dial. One evening, there was a power cut from 11:00 pm till 11:19 pm as a result of which the watch stops functioning. When the power supply resumed, the watch started functioning from 11:00 pm but its hands started moving in anticlockwise direction at half of their normal speed. When Vimal checked it again, it showed the right time. What could have been the time when Vimal checked the watch?

I am getting around 97%tile in iCATs, with sectional percentiles varying between 85 & 95. My scores are coming in the rang of 90-100, sectional scores in the range of 45-50. However, I am unable to clear the cutoffs. With this kind of performance, what percentile can I get in the actual CAT? & what is the difficulty level of iCATs in comparision to the actual CAT?
