A and B are two players throwing 2 dices in a turn with A starting first and taking turns alternatively. A wins if he gets 8 as sum and B wins on getting sum as 7 .What is the probability that A wins in first draw?

My Answer:6/36((3,5),(5,3),(4,4),(4,4),(2,6),(2,6)) As per my understanding if dice are different suppose of red and blue colour then 4,4 should be counted twice and if both dices are identical then 2,6 and 6,2 will also look same

Book Answer: 5/36

Please explain the logic behind any of these answers

@Madhurmoudgil As you said, take red and blue dice. You can differentiate 2 and 6 but not 4 and 4. Hence, the latter will remain a single outcome.

My CATchy journey

CAT 2014

I know it is too long to read, so read it at your own risk!  :D

The journey started almost 8-9 months back, with me planning to write CAT one last time. With FMS as the only target in my head (couldn't trust A B C anymore after they didn't shortlist me even for interview despite scoring 99.90 in CAT 2013), I went on with the preparation with a goal to just score enough to secure the college admission. The job was not satisfactory anymore and the family was also pushing me to try one last time (though they had some higher targets in their mind!).

My preparation mostly relied on few books that I had along with googling for some questions and eventually the Pagalguy question bank. Never took any coaching, or mocks for any of my three CAT papers, one reason to miss the spotlight and to be frank, the one reason that I could focus more on preparation.

A week before the CAT, I had to rush to home for some urgent work and returned just the day before the paper. CAT centre was an overnight journey, left in night to reach there in the morning. Went through the paper, looked like I was out of practice. Tried easier questions first, especially in quant's and then moved for tough ones and at last verbal. Quant took away almost 65-70 minutes and I was mostly satisfied and finally left the centre with a feeling that I might get something around 99.5 (relying on past experience).

From there, it felt like decades before the results were out, I started coming on PG more frequently, saw people doing analysis, tried my hand too, made a graph to calculate percentile (I know it sounds funny, but you guys don't need any explanation for this). Slowly I came to realize that I might get better than my expectation. Anyway, long story short, let's skip to the day of the result.

I was among lucky few who could access the result within the first 10 minutes, and to my surprise, it was much more than I could bear. I had excelled in the part I considered myself really weak in, the VA with 99.92 in the section, my QA took a marginal dip from 99.94 last year to 99.86 this year, but it was the overall percentile that made me more hopeful, that may be this time I would get a call from the big three.

The calls came eventually, from L, A, B (Marginally in my opinion), C (Again marginally in) and K. Checked last year records and decided my preference as A>C>B>FMS>L (FMS due to ROI thingy) and hence decided to skip K interview. IIM-L I would attend just for an experience as it was the first interview I would ever face (Jan 22), followed by the biggest one (A on Jan 25) followed by my marriage on Jan 29 (Yes! You read it right! ).

L went okay, A was pretty smooth with questions mostly on work ex and AWT (Philip Hughes cricket bouncer case). Went home, got married, returned back to attend B (the worst experience, was sure of not getting in). Then came JOKA, interview was weird, with questions like innovative methods to cheat in exam etc etc. Was never sure if I did good or bad!! FMS list came, was sure of converting, and so just chilled during the interview and it went pretty smooth with a cool smiling panel and extempore topic "I love my tie!"

Finally with the results pouring in, my first result (B) was obviously a reject, as expected. Next day, sitting in my office I kept on checking C website, and eventually left for home at 5:50pm. On my way, I got a call from a friend, who converted ISB and IIM-B and he told me -"Dude! You made it to A!" and I was like-"Yaar result kab aaya!". With my internet pack outdated, I called my better half and within a minute she was already shouting on phone-"Yes!!" Well, that was it. The whole evening went over phone with calls to relatives, friends etc. And now today I got the JOKA results.

Finally for the people, who couldn't get in, or were marginally left out, I would just like to say one thing-"It's just the time testing you, don't lose hope and come better prepared next year! They can stop you once, may be twice, but not forever, if you have the will, you will move forward! All the best everyone!"

Hello people! I have joined CL Test series. With that I am thinking of joining just one more test series as three will be too much to handle. Should I join TIME, which is known to be  tougher than the actual exam but has the biggest base , or IMS which is simpler in terms of difficulty level and closer to the actual paper.

Which among the two will compliment the CL test series ?

Hello people, some help needed here.

I gave CAT'14 and got 99.61 but couldn't convert the old IIMs. So, I am going to give CAT again this year and want to join only a test series. Which one should I join - TIME enhanced or basic? or bullseye? or some other test series?

You will get heavy discount in time, ims, not sure about cl. Cost will be 5k for cl, 4k for ims, should be lesser for time. Test taker base : Time > Cl > Ims. Bulls eye is free.
