Ankita @sawanbaing 190

Yo Baba. See the previous question this guy has posted. Incorrect usage of the word 'good'. I can bet all my fortune that the word 'good' has been used correctly in all the sentences. 

Nikhar Mattu @Dark_Passenger 1.1 k

Apparently the source is CL and they consider a incorrect sentence and a sentence in which the specified word has been used incorrectly as the same, so OA is in all probability C.

Nikhar Mattu @Dark_Passenger 1.1 k

Good score but I would keep my expectations under check, in the last one I got 95.xx at 139 and people are saying this one's easier so it could be 95+ but in all probability it would be somewhere around 91-92.

Can anyone explain this?

1. Is it like we will not able to navigate to the next question in a section until we mark the one displayed on our screen.

They have corrected the calculator thing. Negative for unattempted remains


Clarification for Pt 1: They mean that "If you feel more than one answer to be correct for a question, mark the best one"

Q.  Arrange the sentences A,  B, C and      D to form a logical sequence  &              to construct a coherent paragraph.

A. It must be viewed, as some new epidemic would be viewed, as a common peril to be met by concerted action.

B. If we are to think wisely about the new problems raised by nuclear weapons, we must learn to  view the whole matter in a quite different way.

C. These conflicts are so virulent and so passionate that they produce a wide spread inability to understand even very obvious matters.

. D. It is a profound misfortune that the whole question of nuclear warfare has become entangled in the  age-old conflicts of power politics.

I dont get it!

They have given me Lucknow which was my 3rd preference and date as 22nd November.  I filled the early, I dont know if that matters but I do want to know what did I do wrong to be not given a slot in my first two preferred cities.

Roger Messi @gkcat14 202

dude, the slot has been given on a random basis. not first come - first serve. i have got a centre which is on the outskirts of bangalore, 40 kms from my house, where  as  there were a couple of venues near to my house. 

Be Phenomenal OR Be Forgotten @ashishsingh_courage 341

I dont think the cities are given on random basis. Maybe there were too many ppl who applied for the same centre Aditya. Whereas, the exam locations within cities are totally random.

Roger Messi @gkcat14 202

@ashishsingh_courage yeah.. thats what i meant. i got my 1st preference city. but the centre is too far from my home. when i had registered for CAT in the first week after it started, while ppl who registered late got centres nearer to there house.

How many circles can be determined out of 12 points, if 8 out of these 12 are collinear? pls explain with sol.

  • maximum no. of circles is the actual question\. 2h.
venky pradyumna @venkyPradyumna 18

answer is "cannot be determined", right? a circle passes through 3 non collinear points, but can't be sure of whether it will pass through other points.


actually...the anwser is possible .. a cicle passes through 3 noncolliner points is 12c3 subtract 8c3 i.e.12c3-8c3=164 coz out of 12 points 8 points are colllinear they cant make a circle..


and there is also another way..4c3+4c2*8c1+4c1*8c2=164..

venky pradyumna @venkyPradyumna 18

@123asd: Your answer will be true if it is mentioned that any particular circle passing through 3 distinct points will not pass through any other point, but it's not mentioned here. Just draw and see that any circle might pass through not just 3 points but a 4th point, in that case you have counted same circles as 2 nos.

A and B are at two points P and Q and they start moving towards point Q and P respectively. As soon as one reaches the end, he immediately turns back and start moving again. They keep on moving like this. 

In such type of problems, when the formula to calculate time for nth meet =  { (2n-1) * x} / (a+b), can be applied.??

x is the distance b/w P and Q. And a and b are the speeds of A and B respectively.
