800 people were supposed to vote on a resolution , but 1/3 of the people who had decided to vote for the motion were abducted. however ,the opponents of the motion ,through some means managed to increase their strength by 100%. the motion was then rejected by a majority ,which was 50% of that by which it would have been passed if none of these changes would have occurred . how many people finally voted for the motion and against the motion?

  • for the motion = 200; against the motion = 600. 3m.

Gave CL unproctored 16 today, found QA pretty tough:

QA & DI: 24C/30A = 66 (90.81 percentile)

VA & LR: 36C/46A = 98 (94.81 percentile)

OA: 164 (96 percentile)

And I used to think my QA is strong.

Rahul mathur @rahulmathur1990 37

Min. no. of reversals = 1001. Now for each ray, let the reversal be x. Therefore for each ray, a reversal is to be made 2x times to bring it back to its original position. So R = 1001 + 2x which is an odd no.. In the options, only D is odd hence D is the answer 

himanshu khandelwal @ansh.r12 97


yaar thoda explain karoge kaise kia ye? yaar agar saari rays ek direction mein hain to we need 1001 operation correct? but agr kuch ek direction mein hain aur kuch dusri mein to do we need to reverse the rays those rays 2 times which are already in the desired direction?

Rahul mathur @rahulmathur1990 37

haan original direction me laane ke lye 2 baar karni padegi min. toh 1001 hai uske addition me fir 2x hongi so no. will always be odd

a. The when part at least is becoming clearer: After some academic skirmishes over the past decade, most biologists agree that the Pilbara Hills of Western Australia contain traces of life dating back nearly 3.5 billion years. 

b. The evidence for life gathered so far includes fossilized microbial mats called stramotolites and tiny features embedded in rocks, thought by many researchers to be microfossils.  

c. Recently, evidence has been found in the same region for an entire fossilized ecosystem.  

d. There are really three puzzles rolled into one here: the when, where and how of biogenesis.  

e. Now a focus of intense international research, the ancient rocks jut from arid hillsides in a wild and desolate terrain about four hour’s drive through the bush from the coastal town of Port Headland.

@vikelec -- dude ur looking for remainder wen SUCCESSIVELY divided by x,y,z formula ...which wont do here!

Achyut Kulkarni @kulk 68

@vikelec --- successively matlab ,,,ex : 400 wen divided by 3,7,5 remainders are 400/3(remainder-1,quotient - 133), now 133/7(r-0,q-19) , divide 19/5(r-4,q-3) 400wen divided by 3,7,5 leave 1,0,4 remainders respectively,,,,

the other one is normal ..ex 400/3 gives r-1 : 400/5 gives r-0 and 400/7 gives r-1...and so on..

Harsh Vardhan Singh @harshcat91 3.1 k


The Chicken McNugget Theorem states that for any two relatively prime positive integers 'm, n', the greatest integer that cannot be written in the form 'am+bn' for non-negative integers a, b is 'mn-m-n'. The story goes that the Chicken McNugget Theorem got its name because in McDonalds, people bought Chicken McNuggets in 9 and 20-piece packages. Somebody wondered what the largest amount you could buy was, assuming that you did not eat or take away any McNuggets. They found the answer to be 151 McNuggets, thus creating the Chicken McNugget Theorem.

Eight students - A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H - appeared in an examination named PXT. On the basis of the marks obtained in the exam, each of A, B, C and D calculated the difference between his/her marks and the marks obtained by each of E, F, G and H in the exam. The following table provides partial information about the differences calculated by A, B, C and D. For example, the entry in the cell corresponding to 'Row 1 and Column 1'(R1C1) is 2, which means that A scored 2 marks more than the marks scored by E. Same holds true for the rest of the entries. It is also known that, out of A, B, C and D, some of them committed mistakes in calculating the required differences, due to which some entries in the table are incorrect.

Out of the 6 entries given in the table for B and C put together, if only one is incorrect, which of the following cannot be the incorrect entry? a.R3c2 b.R3c4 c.r3c1 d.r2c1

If the entry in R1C4 is 2 and A did not commit any mistake in calculating the required differences, the number of incorrect entries given in the table for C cannot be more than a.0 b.1 c.2 d.3

can some1 give proper explanation to the above?
