So, after 2 good mocks in the past couple of days, back to my dismal standards... It seems it has been a lifetime that I have left the CL centre with a smile on my face after a mock. Y god, Y??

A,B,C seem distant dreams now.

CL Mock 15-

QA- 29A 22C 7W- 59 (Accuracy n speed both went for a toss)

VA- 45A 31C 14W- 79 (Still, chalta h.. though need to get atleast 35+ correct)

OA- 74A 53C 21W- 138 (Yes,21W !!!!! )... Degutted to say the least...

Making a mockery of myself n also of being an Engineer. Being that, is it wrong for me to expect atleast 75 in QA. Need to devise a strategy. Missed all DI's in this one...

I won't write the other two AIMCATS i.e 1518-N and AIMCAT 1517-N..it is useless..i dont understand why those people who already knew the answers wrote this test. looking at the scores which people have got in this AIMCAT, people like me, who gave this test with sincerity , are feeling sad..and on top of that the result says " you haven't appered for the xam" ..

Why be sad? The more questions you do, the better it is for you....mock percentile is just that - a mock percentile. Don't let it bother you, just keep working.

The question given below is followed by two statements, A and B. Mark the answer using the following instructions:
Mark (a) if the question can be answered by using either statement alone.
Mark (b) if the question can be answered by using one of the statements alone, but cannot be answered by using the other statement alone.
Mark (c) if the question cannot be answered even by using both the statements together.
Mark (d) if the question can be answered by using both the statements together, but cannot be answered by using either statement alone.

Q. Two friends, Mubashir and Himanshu, are standing in a room in a way that Mubashir is 5 steps to the left of door 1 and 4 steps to the right of door 2, and Himanshu is 4 steps to the left of door 1 and 5 steps to the right of door 2. Each of them tosses a coin and moves one step right if the outcome is heads and moves one step left if the outcome is tails. After a series of tosses both of them stop on reaching a door. 

Who is at which door?
A. Mubashir gets 5 more heads than tails, and Himanshu 5 more tails than heads.
B. They stop after 17 tosses each.

@deepchou . i head = 1 movement to the right and 1 tail movement means 1 movement to the left. If we get 1 head and 1 tail then effectively no movement happens. Now given the condition Mobashir make 5 moves towards the right(door1) and Himanshu 5 moves towards the left(door2) Hope this helps

Some smaller and identical cubes are taken and each one is painted red on all of its faces. 27 such cubes are taken together to make a bigger cube and is then painted blue on all of its faces. Similarly such 27 blue cubes are taken to form one bigger cube and painted green on all of its faces.

1)How many smaller cubes are painted in green?

2)How many smaller cubes are painted in only red and blue?

u can take any. the given 2 triangles have same angle (vertically opposite) and the next 2 angles are supplementary..

If the trapezium is divided into four triangles by its diagonals AC and BD, intersecting at O, then the area of AOD is equal to that of BOC, and the product of the areas of AOD and BOC is equal to that of AOB and COD. The ratio of the areas of each pair of adjacent triangles is the same as that between the lengths of the parallel sides. (35/144)

askankita91
Shelly Verma @askankita91 5

@ manju sahu .. we get the area of trapezium to be 144  (where H = 10+14 = 24 ) .. so 144 -  (25+49) = 70 .

and 70 is nothing but the area of the traingles AXB and BXC i.e ar(

AXB +BXC ) =70  .. and these two traingles always have the equal areas .. so each 35 and ration is 35/144
