actually i did one thing now.....just take number of copies as 100 & 1000 - 2 cases - in both the N bharath will be minimum. The effect of 0.2 is not much when compared to other variables. - when he said only it striked me

Vaibhav Gupta @pheonix2013 772

u can see deccan and fpi has 2 lakh each now times and navbharate has approx ration 2:3 so approx copies for times and navbharat will be 1.6 and 2.4 on multiplying by price u will see prices as 4.4. , 4.8 , 3.6 and 3.8 (jst using numerals) least advertising will be one with lowest total revenue and max print revenue which will be 4.8 i.e. navbharat. It can be said observational if writing 4.4 ,4.8,3.6 and 3.8 is not consider@ganapathy.1989

Industry standard No. 23 stipulates that the dependants of a worker who suffers injuries or death due to accident inside the factory within his working hours is to be adequately compensated by the company. A worker who stays for five minutes after his stipulated working hours to wind up his work, suffers an accident and is injured. 

The answer to which of the following questions is least inappropriate in helping to determine whether or not the company is liable to pay compensation?

a)Is winding up of the work considered a part of the duty expected to be performed by the worker?

b)Is the time of the accident within the buffer time, if any, within which, if the accident occurs, the company is liable to compensate the victim?

 c)Does the factory have a system of indicating to a worker that his day's work is over?

d)Was the company following all safety measures to prevent accidents at work spots?

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.

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

  • 5Comments
  • @123asd: Your answer will be true if it is mentioned that.... 14 Oct.
  • maximum no. of circles is the actual question\. 3h.
venky pradyumna @venkyPradyumna 19

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 19

@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.
