a. There is still a tendency, supported by excessively quantitative orientation of modern economics, to treat the energy supply problem as just one problem alongside countless others. 

b. It is impossible to get away from it or overemphasize its centrality, if energy fails then everything fails. 

c. Although these basic facts are perfectly obvious, they are not yet sufficiently appreciated. 

d. On the other hand, a shortage of primary energy would mean that the demand for most other primary products would be so curtailed that a question of shortage with regard to them would be unlikely to arise. 

e. As long as there is enough primary energy – at affordable prices – there is reason to believe that bottlenecks in any other primary materials can either be broken or circumvented.

dude, the slot has been given on a random basis. not first come - first serve. i have got a centre which is on the outskirts of bangalore, 40 kms from my house, where  as  there were a couple of venues near to my house. 

ashishsingh_courage
Be Phenomenal OR Be Forgotten @ashishsingh_courage 341

I dont think the cities are given on random basis. Maybe there were too many ppl who applied for the same centre Aditya. Whereas, the exam locations within cities are totally random.

@ashishsingh_courage yeah.. thats what i meant. i got my 1st preference city. but the centre is too far from my home. when i had registered for CAT in the first week after it started, while ppl who registered late got centres nearer to there house.

answer is "cannot be determined", right? a circle passes through 3 non collinear points, but can't be sure of whether it will pass through other points.

123asd
@123asd

actually...the anwser is possible .. a cicle passes through 3 noncolliner points is 12c3 subtract 8c3 i.e.12c3-8c3=164 coz out of 12 points 8 points are colllinear they cant make a circle..

123asd
@123asd

and there is also another way..4c3+4c2*8c1+4c1*8c2=164..

venkyPradyumna
venky pradyumna @venkyPradyumna 18

@123asd: Your answer will be true if it is mentioned that any particular circle passing through 3 distinct points will not pass through any other point, but it's not mentioned here. Just draw and see that any circle might pass through not just 3 points but a 4th point, in that case you have counted same circles as 2 nos.

A and B are at two points P and Q and they start moving towards point Q and P respectively. As soon as one reaches the end, he immediately turns back and start moving again. They keep on moving like this. 

In such type of problems, when the formula to calculate time for nth meet =  { (2n-1) * x} / (a+b), can be applied.??

x is the distance b/w P and Q. And a and b are the speeds of A and B respectively.

this question was asked in cl mock but they have given two answers for this....

The belief in temporary incarnation or inspiration is worldwide. Certain people are supposed to be possessed from time to time by a spirit or deity; while the possession lasts, their own personality lies in abeyance, the presence of the spirit is revealed by convulsive shivering and shaking of the man's whole body, by wild gestures and excited looks, all of which refer, not to the man himself, but to the spirit which has entered into him; and in this abnormal state all his utterances are accepted as the voice of the god or spirit dwelling in him and speaking through him. _____________________


A In this respect, there was a striking resemblance between the military tactics of the Polynesians, and those of the celebrated nations of ancient Greece.

b Thus, for example, in the Sandwich Islands, the king, imitating the god, uttered the responses of the oracle from his concealment in a frame of wickerwork.

As soon as the god was supposed to have entered a man, the latter became violently agitated, and worked himself up to the highest pitch of apparent frenzy.

In this state, he often rolled on the earth, foaming at the mouth, and revealed his desires.

Between B and C, B is a better option because C has already been stated in the passage(presence of the spirit is revealed by convulsive shivering and shaking of the man's whole body, by wild gestures and excited looks..) and is hence a mere repetition.
