[I]n the eight states with close Senate races, just 4.7% of eligible voters on average are Latinos. Among those states, Latinos make up less than 5% of eligible voters in six. Only in Colorado does the 14.2% Latino share among eligible voters exceed the 10.7% national average. Kansas is the only other state where the Latino share among eligible voters exceeds 5%.

A fruit shop sells apples in boxes of different sizes. The fruits are priced at Rs.5 per apple upto 100 apples. For every additional 25 apples, the price of the whole lot goes down by 25 paise per apple. What should be the maximum size of the box that would maximise the revenue?

nik hil @managerbhai 1.6 k

let the total number of apples be x so,

cost = 5x - ((x-100)*(.25x))/25 

cost = (.01)(500x - (x-100)x)

cost = (.01)(600x-x^2)

differentiate and get x=300

should be 324, IMO, because price decreases only after 25 more apples.

@Iambatman5164 The question asked for every 25 apples increase so it probably meant you can only increase in sets of 25. I had the same confusion but looking at the options I corrected my mistake. The language of the question was confusing.

I'm able to enter my work ex only till today (i.e. till the date of filling up the form). And it automatically calculates my work ex in years till today whereas it is mentioned that enter your work ex till March 31st 2015. What's the catch?

Somdeb Chanda @tcpx007

Aamir.. the average salary offered to students is exactly same as has been mentioned in report!! IFMR is very transparent regarding admission and placements... unlike many of the BSchools(including d top ones).. IFMR never inflates its placements statistics...and as of the form submission last date...i have to check it...but for now there is gud amount of time left till the deadline gets over... i remember having applied for IFMR after my CAT and XAT results last year...i hope that answers ur query!!plz get back to me if u have any further questions...

guys, i downloaded my admit card and found to be empty, when i called helpline they asked me to try with latest mozilla version, but still the problem persisted. I found the reason, i opened the pdf using adobe reader touch which is not compatible for that pdf, if anyone has the same problem try opening the pdf with older adobe version. hope it helps!!

Earlier, AIMCATS depressed me to an extent of madness. Now,they are my only respite since CL is coming up with such tough papers and stranger analysis.So, giving the aimcats in unproctored mock one by one.

Guys I think I understood the penalty for unanswered questions issue.
I think it means this:

Penalty for unanswered question is nothing but the marks that question carries. You definitely lose marks from the total when you not attempt that question.

For eg: 
In Present Mock CATs we get a penalty of 3 marks for every unanswered question. We get an additional -1 if we attempt and it goes wrong.

Hence they will declare the exact marks of a question and nothing more. There are no negative marks for not answering; it is just the usual loss of marks for not attempting it. 
Your comments on this analogy please.

Hi.. I wanted to apply for FPM in public policy and management from IIM A,B,C. For that I appeared for GRE and was hoping for 320+. Besides FPM, I was going to apply for MS also. But unfortunately things went so wrong that I would be getting 310 approx. which is hell low and disappointing score to apply anywhere. Can I apply for FPM without a GRE score? Would that be hampering my chances of selection? With this score and below profile any good university abroad for Materials? Below is my profile:

(i) BTech. - Metallurgical and Materials Engg , NIT Jaipur (ii) CGPA- 9.03 (Gold Medalist) (iii) Research internship from IISc Bangalore (iv) One Research paper published in an international journal-JPED (v) 10th/12- 87/85%. Currently working with Raymond's Engineering Business.  Thanks!!!!

If you are ok with just A,B and C you should go ahead and close it this year. A GRE score of 310 is more than sufficient in the FPM program, any higher score does not add to your resume as your qualifications are measured in terms of research propensity and suitability etc.
