Four players from Barcelona Football Club viz. Fabregas, Messi, Iniesta and Xavi are sitting in a row from left to right. Each of them is of different height and is wearing a different colour t-shirt viz. Red, Yellow, Blue and White but not necessarily in the same order.

The player wearing Red colour t-shirt was between players wearing Yellow and White coloured t-shirts respectively.

The player wearing White t-shirt is taller than taller than the player wearing Red t-shirt and shorter than the player wearing Yellow t-shirt.

There is one player who has a height of 1.79 m. and he is not wearing a blue t-shirt.

Iniesta is taller than Fabregas.

The difference in the heights of the player wearing Blue t-shirt and the one wearing White t-shirt is 0.04 meters.

The player wearing Yellow t-shirt is the only one between players whose heights are 1.68 meters and 1.72 meters.

Who is the tallest among them? (Ans: Iniesta).

>>> I got the t-shirt colors associated with each height, but I am not able to connect the players with their heights or t-shirts. Could someone please tell me an approach to do so?<<<

@ana195 : i came up with 2 possibilities a) left to right BYRW and b)  WRYB  since F,M,I,X, are seated left to right and since yellow is tallest 1.79 so yellow -Messi or yellow is Iniesta

Valar Morghulis @ferlonso 505

I feel CAT difficulty level will lie somewhere between CL Mocks and SIMCATs with chance of it being closer to SIMCATs just because it is the first year of the new format. Till now no official confirmation of the marking pattern, so I hope after all these uncertainties the paper turns out to be a bit on the easier side

Valar Morghulis @ferlonso 505

But yes, CL difficulty has risen quite sharply in especially Sec I

prashant @findingbugs 243

I feel the same.. closer to simcats and bulls eye.. cl used to give closer to cat papers but it seems they are just completing formalities.. !!

Nikhar Mattu @Dark_Passenger 1.2 k

I hope CAT is exactly like CL...tough QA and easy VA....all the QA specialists will see their score fall(which is a fair number of people) and all the VA specialists will see their score increase(which is like 50 people all India or something )

the minimum percentile for ST category student to get a call from old IIMs??

  • Exactly!! The higher the percentile, better are ur chances.. 6h.
  • @Sumana08 are u st category student as well?. 1h.
Dhaakad Chhora @DhaakadChhora 11

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.

Sumana RB @Sumana08 36

Exactly!! The higher the percentile, better are ur chances.
