(3^2003-1) even & 3^2003 + 1 also even therefore LCM will be (3^4006 - 1)/2 Now last digit of (3^4006 - 1) is 8 which gives 8/2=4

Hi all how are u all doing the part b of the paper ... i usually fail to complete the paper by 85 mins , most of the time i end up not attempting the RC at all , can u share me the best approach of doing the part b .. thanks in advance

  • thanks man ..... :). 4m.

barfi . @abd7 307

first 15 mins scan those 50 questions and mark the halwaa ones and make sure to even solve AT LEAST 3-4

examples: direct vocab questions, FIBs, odd one out,etc

next 20 mins focus on PJ PC LR sitters(6-7 of them) and the halwa ones which you kept aside there

next 15 minutes choose that one LR set which you feel is doable

last 30 minutes choose 2 or say 3 RCs (out of the 5-6 of them which TIME gives -.- ) and make sure to comprehend the shit out of them

total 80 mins

honestly this is really subjective and depends entirely on a person's capacity. there are some who wouldn't advise to spend more than 8-9 mins on one LR set and some start taking questions as and when they come. no scanning and shit. so devise a strategy that works the best for you

Good score but I would keep my expectations under check, in the last one I got 95.xx at 139 and people are saying this one's easier, so it could be 95+ but in all probability it would be somewhere around 91-92.

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.

actually i did one thing now.....just take number of copies as 100 & 1000 - 2 cases - in both the N bharath will be minimum. The effect of 0.2 is not much when compared to other variables. - when he said only it striked me

pheonix2013
Vaibhav Gupta @pheonix2013 773

u can see deccan and fpi has 2 lakh each now times and navbharate has approx ration 2:3 so approx copies for times and navbharat will be 1.6 and 2.4 on multiplying by price u will see prices as 4.4. , 4.8 , 3.6 and 3.8 (jst using numerals) least advertising will be one with lowest total revenue and max print revenue which will be 4.8 i.e. navbharat. It can be said observational if writing 4.4 ,4.8,3.6 and 3.8 is not consider@ganapathy.1989

B. If we are to think wisely about the new problems raised by nuclear weapons, we must learn to  view the whole matter in a quite different way.

C. These conflicts are so virulent and so passionate that they produce a wide spread inability to understand even very obvious matters.
