A. Renunciation was the catchword, poverty the goal and austerity the norm of the day. 

B. Wealth, claimed the pundits of yore, was a sin if it was not accumulated for a 'godly' purpose.
C. There was, however, an easy way out, just keep donating money to religious institutions and God would turn a blind eye to how you earn your wealth.
D. If you did not practice these, you were a sinner, decreed to being either reborn as a lower animal if a Hindu, or to be barbecued in the fires of hell, if a Christian.

Guys I think I understood the penalty for unanswered questions issue.
I think it means this:

Penalty for unanswered question is nothing but the marks that question carries. You definitely lose marks from the total when you not attempt that question.

For eg: 
In Present Mock CATs we get a penalty of 3 marks for every unanswered question. We get an additional -1 if we attempt and it goes wrong.

Hence they will declare the exact marks of a question and nothing more. There are no negative marks for not answering; it is just the usual loss of marks for not attempting it. 
Your comments on this analogy please.

  • what if the question itself doesnt get saved , everytime .... 39m.
  • genuine concern. 39m.
Ankur Jhavery @ajhavery 131

I don't think we have a confusion here.

"If you do not understand a question on the test, you should answer the question to the best of your ability"
This simply means that if you're not able to understand what a question is asking, you shouldn't raise your hands and start asking the invigilator like you do in schools.

It simply means do as you understand to the best of your ability.

And "Details on negative marking and penalty for unanswered questions will be shared closer to the test day." means there could be penalty for unanswered questions which none of us can speculate until the final verdict comes through CAT website.

what if the question itself doesnt get saved , everytime you select and option and move after clicking save and next

All the chapters of a book have an equal number of sections such that the number of chapters and the number of sections in each chapter differ by 10. If Ram reads four sections per day, he can finish reading the book on the 14th day. If he reads 2 sections per day, he can finish reading the book on the 28th day and if he reads 3 sections per day, he can finish reading the book on the 19th day. If Ram reads 3 sections per day, and no two sections of two different chapters on the same day, then find the minimum number of days he requires to finish reading the book.

I think here @bbansod09  is talking about getting the no of co-primes as a pair which represent the breakup of the corresponding number.

CAT 13 : 91.88 XAT 14 : 82.32 :( .
jayraj dabral @jayrajdabral 27

For 4 factors it must be of form ab or a^3

So a^3(8,27)=2 nos

Now for ab form so with a=2 (prime nos from 3 to 47)=14

Shelly Verma @askankita91 2

for a^3 ...  its a= 2^3 = 8  ..  a=3^3 = 27 .. a= 4^3 = 64 .  guys y u all are not including 4 too

Ankita @sawanbaing 109

Ma'am, 4^3= 2^6 so it has more than 4 factors.

 If the number has four factors, it will be of the form a^3 or ab, where a and b are prime numbers.

its right only!! but i think there is a mistake in question 21.!!

Amritesh Kumar @singh.amritesh1 5

@FrozenAngel I understand your confusion. The question asked for every 25 apples increase so it probably meant you can only increase in sets of 25. I had the same confusion but looking at the options I corrected my mistake.

Shashwat Gangwar @shashwatdgr8 826
