Number of policeman is the diameter of bubble, from that we can conclude that number of policeman in Italy is approximately equal to sum of policeman of France and Belgium (by observing the number of blocks covered at farthest points of bubble)

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?

A. compromised

B. grounded

C. tethered 

D. balanced

I would suggest you give cat, xat and other related examinations to maximize your chances. XLRI doesn't give a high weightage to past academics. So you have a good chance if you do well in the exam. All this is my personal opinion though.

I am studying in XLRI with a score of 83.xx% in 10th, 79.xx in 12 and 7.37 percentile in graduation. All the best for all your exams  :)

Takls @I_like_beer 11

haha fu @aniket_t5  cause you definitely can score 50 in Quant. If majority of the questions are going bouncer, then quickly get your basics clear(Takshzila Shikshak on YouTube, or your coaching teachers); if it's lack of time/panicking, then get used to the section by giving sectional tests. Either way, practice is going to pull you out of the ditch. Stay strong lol

AIMCAT 1614N: Q25

If (1 + x + x5)15 = a0 + a1x + a2x2 + a3x3 +...+a74x74 + a75x75, then for how many values of i (0 ≤ i ≤ 75) is ai ≠ 0?

Can someone please explain this in an easier way? I am unable to understand the explanation provided in the answer section of AIMCAT.

  • #. 23 Aug.
  • Let the general term of expansion (1 + x + x5)15 be K.(1).... 8h.

Let the general term of expansion (1 + x + x5)15 be K.(1)^a.(x)^b.(x^5)^c. Therefore a+b+c=15 and b+5c has to lie between 0 to 75 (Powers of x). b+5c can not take values 74 ,73,72 (b+c>15 e.g.->c=13&b=9,8,7

) and 69,68,64( Again b+c>15->e.g.->c=12 &b=7,6,5

). So total 76-6=70 solns
