Each of them had his/her share 

Indranil Roy @rafaelnadal 1.1 k

Some indefinite pronouns are particularly troublesome Everyone and everybody (listed above, also) certainly feel like more than one person and, therefore, students are sometimes tempted to use a plural verb with them. They are always singular, though. Each is often followed by a prepositional phrase ending in a plural word (Each of the cars), thus confusing the verb choice. Each, too, is always singular and requires a singular verb.

Everyone has finished his or her homework.

You would always say, "Everybody is here." This means that the word is singular and nothing will change that.

Each of the students is responsible for doing his or her work in the library

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 in through company sponsorship if I clear its cut off?

Prateek Malhotra @prateekm28


We don't have the exact number of how many people applied through company sponsorship last year, but the process and cut offs are same for everyone. 

Yes you are allowed to keep a personal car and regarding the hostel accommodation, FORE has leased hostel to third party. Hostels are fully furnished and have all the amenities such as AC, geyser, RO water etc. Hostel is 5 min drive from college.

Your acads are great you surely stand a chance. All the Best

Prateek Malhotra @prateekm28

@Mirnalika company sponsored candidates are the people who are funded by the company in which they are working for their MBA. These candidates are then required to join back their organization depending upon what is the agreement between the candidate and the company.

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?<<<

The order of players' positions is given... It gives one possibility.

Sriram Ramesh @bluesypher 7

Question is incorrect, fabregas is no longer with barca

Ronit Varshney @varshneyronit 1

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

The only arrangement for this statement would only be Y R W na.. not W  R  Y.. as the word they have used is respectively ?

@vikram khatore @vikram.khatore 5

ineasta --1.79 tallest , yellow shirt , taking 2 passibilities

jimmy xavier @jboy 8

@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
