A table is in the shape of an isosceles triangle having three seats along each of the 3 sides of the triangle. In how many ways can 9 people sit across the table?
The solution says all seats are different but shouldn't the seats along the equal sides be considered same?

pick the sentence that is not part of that context
1.Greater wealth in South Asia brings with it a soaring demand for food, especially for water-intensive meat and other protein; industry and energy-producers also use water, though they return it, eventually, to the rivers.
2.The scarcity of water in South Asia will become harder to manage as demand rises - South Asia's population of 1.5 billion is growing by 1.7% a year, which means an extra 25 million or so mouths to water and feed.
3.In any case the cost of running short of water is already becoming clear - in Bangladesh 77 million people were poisoned by arsenic in a village by pumping up ground water
4.Worse, overall supply will not only fail to keep up with rising demand but is likely to fall as the Himalayan glaciers are melting.
@ People who're giving take home simcats, how close would you say are these to the proctored simcats? Are they of a similar difficulty level as the proc ones?
why does the overall percentile of any mock keeps on decreasing day by day......i know people are taking it as unproc...but seriously ??

Four persons, Pavan, Tarun, Venky, and Waqar, are standing on the left bank of a river, whereas another four persons, Qureshi, Ramesh, Sanjay, and Uday, are standing on the right bank of the river. A ferry, which can be used to cross the river and go to the other bank, is present initially on the left bank. The ferry can carry a maximum of two people at a time. However, there must be at least one person in the ferry in order to guide it to the other bank. The travel of the ferry from one bank to the other is called a trip. The eight persons have certain preferences regarding how they would like to travel in the ferry. The following information is known about their preferences:
(i) If Pavan is present in the ferry, Tarun must also be present in the ferry.
(ii) If Venky travels to a bank on which Sanjay is already present, Sanjay will immediately travel to the opposite bank.
(iii) Qureshi will travel in the ferry only when Uday is not present in the ferry.
(iv) Venky and Waqar cannot travel together in the ferry.
Q.What is the minimum number of trips the ferry must make so that all the eight people are present on the same bank?
Q.If Tarun and Ramesh are in the ferry during its second trip, what is the minimum number of trips in which all the people on the left bank could go to the right bank and vice versa?
Q.If Ramesh and Uday are in the ferry during its second trip, who among the following could not have travelled in the ferry during its first trip
Q.After the ferry completed three trips, which of the following pairs of persons cannot be on the left bank?
I would like to nominate myself to one of the positions which I think very much tells my story as an underdog.
You can go through the link to find an underdog in me who doesn't have the word "QUIT" in his dictionary; working hard to get counted among the elite from being a mediocre.
Struggling and giving everything to try to get that inch ahead, the name summarizes it all. The story continues, this time against a new furious warrior named CAT. Till now the journey has been really a tough one which you can see below as I have failed miserably many a times but the fire within to get into those coveted IIMs has never been extinguished.
Which is why I can see myself here in the Underdog Team who can contribute much to the team with my hardcore experiences motivating everyone to give everything in them to hit the bulls eye.

It has become something of a literary
cliche to bash the thesaurus, or at the very least, to warn fellow writers that
it is a book best left alone. Some admonitions might be blunt, others wistful,
as with Billy Collins musing on his rarely opened thesaurus. But beyond the
romantic anthropomorphizing of words needing to break free from 'the warehouse
of Roget', what of Collins' more pointed criticism, that 'there is no/such
thing as a synonym'? That would suggest that the whole enterprise of
constructing a thesaurus is predicated on a fiction.
It is only a fiction if one holds fast to the notion that synonyms must be exactly equivalent in their meaning, usage and connotation. Of course, under this strict view, there will never be any 'perfect' synonyms. No word does exactly the job of another. In the words of the linguist Roy Harris, 'If we believe there are instances where two expressions cannot be differentiated in respect of meaning, we must be deceiving ourselves.'
But the synonyms that we find gathered together in a thesaurus are typically more like siblings that share a striking resemblance. 'Brotherly' and 'fraternal,' for instance. Or 'sisterly' and 'sororal.' They may correspond well enough in meaning, but that should not imply that one can always be substituted for another. Consulting a thesaurus to find these closely related sets of words is only the first step for a writer looking for le mot juste: the peculiar individuality of each would-be synonym must then be carefully judged. Mark Twain knew the perils of relying on the family resemblance of words: 'Use the right word,' he wrote, 'not its second cousin.'
No matter how tempting the metaphor, though, words are not people. We cannot run genetic tests on them to determine their degrees of kinship, and a thesaurus is not a pedigree chart. We can, nonetheless, look to it as a guidebook to help us travel around the semantic space of our shared lexicon, grasping both the similarities that bond words together and the nuances that differentiate them.
(1) Which of the following is the primary purpose of the passage?
A.To outline and examine the validity of the criticisms levied against the thesaurus.
B.To demonstrate that the thesaurus is not a collection of synonyms but a collection of related words.
C.To argue that despite the criticism against it the thesaurus can still be a useful tool to understand the relationship between words.
D. To highlight the futility of trying to find the perfect synonym.
(2) Which of the following is synonymous with 'predicated' as it is used in the last sentence of the first paragraph?
