Qn42) If 7 investors have invested in FDs and MFs (but not in equity), what percentage of people have invested in only one of the three avenues? (Use data from previous question/s if necessary.)

Q41) 

If the number of people investing in all the three is 18 and the sum of number of people investing in only equity and mutual funds (but not in FDs) and only in mutual funds and fixed deposits (but not in equity) is 20, what percentage of investors have invested only in fixed deposits and equity (but not in MFs)?

@Sabya1590 - Did u do this question.....i feel that it is wrong because it is given that investment in shares is the same, but the total investment has increased, so it means FD and MF should have increased in% na?

Ganpath @ganapathy.1989 56

actually investment in shares is the same. So it is Rs.140750/-. If the total is hiked to 600000, the equity investment becomes 23.4%(140750/600000). So is it right to keeo the remaining as 42% and 33%? The total now becomes 42+33+23.4 = 98.4?

Hi

I have some questions here, it will be really great if someone could answer these. Also, I am sure this will kill curiosity amongst many others, having similar doubts

1) 10th - 87.2, 12th - 77.8, BTech(IT)- 75, Work Ex - 4 years as Application Developer, GMAT - 610 AWA 6, IR6. 

Loads of co curricular, including managing of International Conferences to being part of Talent team for entire 4000+ employee at my location, Corporate Responsibility work etc

Do I stand a chance for GLIM Chennai or Gurgaon?

2) I do understand that that fee, faculty, placements differs for Chennai and Gurgaon, but what else differs? Is it better to be at Ggn over Chennai?

3) Has the Ggn campus shifted to Vasant Kunj (GLIM's own campus) ?

4) When are the people notified for their recommendation letters? As of now, my current employer is not aware of my plans to apply for an MBA.. thereby this question.

5) The email address for recommender is taken in the initial form itself?

 Thomas Malthus, the British clergyman-turned economist, predicted that the planet would not be able to support the human population for long. His explanation was that human population grows at a geometric rate, while the food supply grows only at an arithmetic rate. 
Which one of the following, if true, would not undermine the thesis offered by Malthus?

The question has a paragraph from which the last
sentence has been deleted. From the given options, choose the sentence that completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way.


Trade protectionism, disguised as concern for the climate, is raising its head. Citing competitiveness concerns, powerful industrialized countries are holding out threats of a levy on imports of energy-intensive products from developing countries that refuse to accept their demands. The actual source of protectionist sentiment in the OECD countries is, of course, their current lacklustre economic performance, combined with the challenges posed by the rapid economic rise of China and India - in that order.

(1) Climate change is evoked to bring trade protectionism through the back door.
(2) OECD countries are taking refuge in climate change issues to erect trade barriers against these
two countries.
(3) Climate change concerns have come as a convenient stick to beat the rising trade power of
China and India.
(4) Defenders of the global economic status quo are posing as climate change champions.
(5) Today's climate change champions are the perpetrators of global economic inequity.

I made the mistake of putting the wrong DoB and made the payment as well. I talked to the executive (3 times to confirm) and I was told that it's totally okay. Just have to carry the Original Document to prove.

Just call at 18002100151 to let them know.

This is the error from their side. Don't worry guys. I saw it myself while a friend was registering. I thought I had entered the wrong DoB, but it was their mistake.

So chillax all.

@ankittripathi One out of 3 times I called, I was adviced by the executive to refill the form. But in the next conversation, the guy told me not to. I saved my 1600 bucks. Even they were not sure what to do.

Somehow not convinced that the answer to  this question in correct. Is it just me or somebody else too feel that there is a something missing in it?

[AIMCAT]

21.(a) When Nelson Mandela was freed from prison, his vision was of a South Africa that both  
  offered economic, as well as democratic, freedom. 

(b) Basic needs of housing, water and electricity would be met through massive public works programmes. 

(c) But, as power came into the ANC's reach, enormous pressure was put on the party to prove it could govern with 'sound macroeconomic policies.' 

(d) It became clear that if Mandela attempted genuine redistribution of wealth, the international markets would have punished South Africa. 

(e) Many within the party feared understandably that an economic meltdown would be used as an indictment not just of ANC but of black rule itself.
