successive division will give you smallest remainder

For this question we get 145.If you want any higher multiples Find LCM of (7,8,9)+145. Done

7a+5 = 8b+4 = 9c+2

7a+5 = 5,12,19,26,33,40
8b+4 = 4,12,20..........

Note : 12 is common to both

So number is of the form 8*7 K+12 or 56 K + 12 i.e 12,68,124, 180,236

and it also follows 9c+2

Clearly 236 will be the first such number  

in general N = 56*9 x+ 236 = 504x + 236 @AnjanRaina

The immigration of Europeans and the importation of West African slaves to America resulted in a convergence of cultures, traditions, and art forms, including music. Jazz, first played in New Orleans in the early 1900s, borrowed heavily from the European musical scale and harmonic system. Jazz ensembles were built predominantly on European instruments, such as the trumpet, trombone, saxophone, and piano. The West African influence on jazz was manifested primarily in its performance. Scatting, a technique used by jazz vocalists to mimic the sounds of instruments, had its origin in West African vocal traditions. The emphasis on improvisation in jazz music, in addition to group participation, also came from West African music.

Some musicologists argue that jazz is a purely American form of music. Others, however, contend that jazz is rooted in a history similar to that of America itself, a history of confluence. Proponents of the argument that jazz is purely American often point to its genesis in New Orleans as evidence for this perspective. The irony, however, is that the essence of America lies in the plurality of its roots. To deny the rich and complex history of jazz, and the true origins of the art form, is to deny the very aspects of the art form that make it undeniably American.

1.The author of the passage would most likely agree with which of the following statements?

 a. Although American football was derived from the English sports of soccer and rugby, it should be called a purely American sport because it was first played in America.
b. Because American football was derived from the English sports of soccer and rugby, it should not be called an American sport.
c. Most sports scholars deny the English origins of American football.
d. What makes American football American is its derivation from the English sports of soccer and rugby.
e. Because the essence of America lies in the plurality of its roots, American football should not be called an American sport.

2.Which of the following elements of jazz most likely has its origin in West African musical traditions?

a. the emphasis on a tonal harmonic structure
b. the use of an instrument to mimic a vocalist's sound
c. the use of traditional African instruments
d. the use of many instruments in a jazz ensemble
e. an impromptu call-and-response between two instruments in the ensemble

3.The primary purpose of the passage is to

a. demonstrate how new art forms evolve
b. describe a medium's diverse cultural genesis and a relevant paradox
c. argue that a new art form has its origins in the geographic location where it developed
d. describe the impact of African culture on an American art form
e. claim that one culture had a greater impact than another on the evolution of a new art form

Hello guys ! Hope all of you are going great guns AFA CAT preps are concerned. I am planning to kick start my preparations in a week or two. I do not know if there's sufficient time. Am sharing my brief profile :-

1. 4th year UG when appearing for CAT 14.
2. X - 97 %, XII- 94.7
3. CGPA (Here's the spanner in the wheel) - 7.6
4. Decent extra curricular involvement
5. 1 internship in the power industry, 1 in supply chain

What CAT score/ percentile should I aim at for an A/B/C/L/K/I call ? And am I being realistic expecting a decent CAT score will help me fetch a couple of calls ?

Thanks for your time.

Seeing number of selected candidates and roll numbers i believe all those who had attended interview got selected! Any idea what value does this course has in market and what profile candidates should go for international business?

@ankitdugar007  did you get your call letter ? did you check the experience part they are asking for now?

I just pulled the roll no. and I could see that 180 students range between Roll no. 1001 to 1216, considering 3% students to be absent on exam day which makes 36, resulting selected student to number of 181 which is actually the case as per IIFT website. So, every one who appeared got selected.

Reason for this could be fewer no. of applications this year.

Shikhar Giri @samsungkumar 10

I will share my approach.. Solve the quant section for the first 50 mins easy+Med Questions...  Try to cover/see as many questions as possible. If some question is solvable but lengthy or if you get stuck somewhere, mark it for later. After that move to VA section. Solve all possible questions within one hour(Try to solve all LRs). After that you can devote time to quant section for 30-40 mins and rest for english depending upon your strong area.

u can do it like this.draw only one secant due to this there will be two unbounded regions.now draw one more secant and now there will be 4 unbounded regions and so on so forth.so for every secant there will be double unbounded regions hence answer shoulb be 66.
