800 people were supposed to vote on a resolution , but 1/3 of the people who had decided to vote for the motion were abducted. however ,the opponents of the motion ,through some means managed to increase their strength by 100%. the motion was then rejected by a majority ,which was 50% of that by which it would have been passed if none of these changes would have occurred . how many people finally voted for the motion and against the motion?

guys i need a quick and honest review from you. just attempted the va & rc section from cat 2003. 44 attempted 30 correct-14 wrong. time taken: around 60-65 minutes. want to know how bad the score is

p.s I know i should've completed the whole test but i'm feeling too damn sleepy to do it

Nikhar Mattu @Dark_Passenger 1.3 k

@pulkit_malik Only scrabbler can tell you the proper analysis as only he knows all the CAT papers inside out, bki agar neend aa rhi thi to diya kyun...I find I best perform in a mock/sectional when I have just woken up and thus when my head is clear and unfazed.

Off PG Temporarily :( @scrabbler 22.7 k

In 40 minutes that would be a good attempt. In 65...well, that leaves 55 min for 50 questions of QA and 50 of DI+LR, you would have a rough time clearing the sectional cutoffs. If you scored the equivalent of 55 marks (in a +3/-1 format) that should have been enough to clear the sectional cutoff, so perhaps you should have moved to the other sections sooner. @pulkit_malik do ensure that you take test, whenever possible, at the same time as your actual test is going to be (and that you learn to not feel sleepy while doing so   )

NotDarkKnight ✔© @sav-9 4.5 k

totally agree with scrabbler ... try to take mocks at ur actual cat slot ...!!

Pulkit Malik @pulkit_malik 965

@sav-9 I wanted to ask you one thing. Are these questions easier than those in aimcats? Coz i found most of them to be of the same level as those of aimcats. Infact a few of the quant questions were there in aimcats too

NotDarkKnight ✔© @sav-9 4.5 k

@pulkit_malik lol .. bhai main wahi shuru se bolta aya hun .. saab kehte hai ki mocks are tougher than cat .. but reality is cat is incomparable to mocks .. mocks only target the old cat papers ...!! every year cat gives 99% brand new questions ....!! so cat is a totally different ball game ....

Writing this post after attempting Mock CAT on CAT website. Like some of you there are certain questions in my mind.

1) As VA sections did not have any question on Vocab, Paragraph Completion

2) There were no Data Sufficiency questions unlike predicted by GP.

Should we expect the same paper format in Real CAT? What do you think should be the percentage of marks required with this kind of format to get 99.5+.

P.S.- I hope everybody must be having their point of views and questions. Please discuss because every time there is strategy involved acc. to format.

rahul bakshee @baks 38

i do it as sourabh has mentioned... manually

seeking for a pattern

Joydeep Debnath @joy161989 84

It can be done by putting 2x=k ...

so k+y+z= 18 ......   (i)  

y+z = 18-k

y>=0 . z >=0...  18-k >=0

k<=18 and k is even

y+z = (18-k) ...... (ii)    equation (ii) >=0                                                                     So no of non negative integral solutions for equation (ii) will be  (n+r-1) C (r-1)

i.e. no of solutions =( 18-k+2-1) C (2-1) = (19-k) C 1 = 19-k

k will take values  as 0,2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18

for k =0  --------> no of solutions= 19-0 =19

k=2 -----------> no of solutions= 19-2 =17

k=4 ----------> no of solutions= 19-4 =15


k= 18 ------------> no of solutions= 19-18 = 1

Total no of solutions = 19+17+15+13+11+9+7+5+3+1 = 100   Ans.

Adolf Hitler @plant.waters 3.1 k

slightly quicker method is take 2x to the other side x+y=18-2x, now use n+r-1cr-1, 19-2x, when y=z=0 x=9 so x goes from o to 9 19(10)-9*10=100

Rahul mathur @rahulmathur1990 37

Min. no. of reversals = 1001. Now for each ray, let the reversal be x. Therefore for each ray, a reversal is to be made 2x times to bring it back to its original position. So R = 1001 + 2x which is an odd no.. In the options, only D is odd hence D is the answer 

himanshu khandelwal @ansh.r12 97


yaar thoda explain karoge kaise kia ye? yaar agar saari rays ek direction mein hain to we need 1001 operation correct? but agr kuch ek direction mein hain aur kuch dusri mein to do we need to reverse the rays those rays 2 times which are already in the desired direction?

Rahul mathur @rahulmathur1990 37

haan original direction me laane ke lye 2 baar karni padegi min. toh 1001 hai uske addition me fir 2x hongi so no. will always be odd

a. The when part at least is becoming clearer: After some academic skirmishes over the past decade, most biologists agree that the Pilbara Hills of Western Australia contain traces of life dating back nearly 3.5 billion years. 

b. The evidence for life gathered so far includes fossilized microbial mats called stramotolites and tiny features embedded in rocks, thought by many researchers to be microfossils.  

c. Recently, evidence has been found in the same region for an entire fossilized ecosystem.  

d. There are really three puzzles rolled into one here: the when, where and how of biogenesis.

Harsh Vardhan Singh @harshcat91 3.1 k


The Chicken McNugget Theorem states that for any two relatively prime positive integers 'm, n', the greatest integer that cannot be written in the form 'am+bn' for non-negative integers a, b is 'mn-m-n'. The story goes that the Chicken McNugget Theorem got its name because in McDonalds, people bought Chicken McNuggets in 9 and 20-piece packages. Somebody wondered what the largest amount you could buy was, assuming that you did not eat or take away any McNuggets. They found the answer to be 151 McNuggets, thus creating the Chicken McNugget Theorem.
