 There are 98 given points on a circle. Amar, Akbar and Anthony start playing a game by drawing a chord one by one between two of the points which have not yet been joined together. The game ends when all such points have been joined exhaustively. The winner is the one who draws the last chord. If Anthony starts the game, followed by Akbar, and then Amar, then who will win?

Guys, in the test guide it's mentioned that

'If you do not understand a question on the test, you should answer the question to the best of your ability. Details on negative marking and penalty for UNANSWERED QUESTIONS will be shared closer to the test day.' Any thoughts on this?

I have few queries.

1. How many students applied through company sponsorship for PGDM? Out of these how many got selected?

2. What was the cut off for CAT for the students applying through company sponsorship? Any sectional cut off?

3. Are we allowed to keep personal car?

4. Do enlighten me over the hostel accomodation.

5. I have 91.2% in class X. I have 92.2% in class XII. BCom from DU and having 70% in graduation. Do I have a chance to get admission through company sponsorship if I clear its cut off?

Akarsh Prasad @akarshp 342

IMI accepts company sponsored students within the approved strength of the program which varies across years. Also, note that the students applying through company sponsored category have a different fee structure and do not receive any placement assistance from college

All programs at IMI are fully residential with both on and off campus hostels. The students are allowed to have their personal vehicles on campus

You need to clear the CAT/GMAT cut off first to get a WAT/PI call. Your performance in that along with your overall profile will be considered before the final call

@akarshp Please enlighten me over last year cut offs for company sponsorship candidates.

Akarsh Prasad @akarshp 342

The exact cut off is unknown to me but it was in the range of 80 to 85%ile

Also note that the cut offs vary every year based on the number of applications received

The Statesman @The_Statesman 12

Depends on company to company. Some company prefer freshers, some prefer ppl with work ex. Ppl with work ex do get excellent placement.  Depends on field, profile etc.

@aimk Relevance of your work ex, your profile and your interviews all play a part, we have people with high work ex getting great jobs.. totally depends on you and your spec

Harish and Sachin are playing a game of matchsticks. There are N matchsticks on the table to start with. Each player, in his turn, picks up at least one matchstick and at most eight matchsticks. The two players take turns alternately. The player who clears the table loses. Assume that each player plays intelligently with an objective of winning. The first move is made by Harish. No player is allowed to pass his turn without picking up any matchsticks.

Instead of a minimum of one matchstick, each player has to pick up at least two matchsticks in his turn. The only instance that a player is allowed to pick up one matchstick is when there is only one matchstick left on the table.

If it is known that N is greater than 128 but less than 138 and that Harish picked up 6 matchsticks in his first move and eventually won the game, then what is the value of N?

total number of triangles can be formed(nc3)= no sides common (x) + one side common n*(n-4)+ two sides common (n) .. therefore no sides common is -> nc3 - ( n*(n-4) + n) ..
