The Maxilux car company’s design for its new luxury model, the Max 100, included a special design for the tires that was intended to complement the model’s image. The winning bid for supplying these tires was submitted by Rubco. Analysts concluded that the bid would only just cover Rubco’s costs on the tires, but Rubco executives claim that winning the bid will actually make a profit for the company.

Which of the following, if true, most strongly justifies the claim made by Rubco’s executives?

Q. 1.  Directions: In each question, there are five sentences. The sentence labelled A is in its correct place. The four that follow are labelled B, C, D and E, and need to be arranged in the logical order to form a coherent paragraph. From the given options, choose the most appropriate option. 

  A. According to materialists, the universe was eternal, and therefore, there was no purpose or special creation in it. 
B. Claiming that everything came into being as the result of unconscious atoms assembling at random, they believed that no matter how much complexity, balance and magnificent regularity was exhibited by the external world, these were still the result of purposeless coincidences. 
C. Materialists imagined that all the balances, equilibrium, harmony and order in the universe were solely the results of chance. 
D. Since materialism rejected the concepts of purpose and creation to the universe, it also denied the existence of a Creator. 
E. Materialist minds had held such preconceptions ever since the days of Ancient Greece.

what is the sum of first 1000 terms of the series  1,1,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,3,3,4,4... and so on ???

  • 21088. 1h.
Tushar Kathuria @librantushar 2

The series can be written as 1*2+2*4+3*6...i.e summation n(2n)= 2*[n(n+1)(2n+1)]/6. So we need to find the value of n to put in this. 1 is repeated 2 times and so on so it is an AP with a=2,d=2. Sum of this AP should be less than equal to 1000. Sum=x(x+1). The closest values that satisfy are 31*32=992. So the 992th term will be 31*62 as 2+(31-1)*2=62 and the series is of the form n*2n. After this the 993 to 1000 terms will be 32,32,32..8 times. So put n=31 in the very first equation to get 20832 (sum of 992 terms)and add 8*32 to it for the last 8 terms. Ans= 21088

6 years - 5 CATs, 4 XATs, 2 FMS, 3 IIFTs, 3 GMATs, 2 JMETs and over 500 Mocks, 1 failed start up  and 

Finally got 760 in GMAT and joining Tepper school of Business - Carnegie Mellon University.

I loved the journey, in fact I loved it too much for my liking. Met remarkable person and saw stories which will inspire the dead from the grave to rise up and write CAT, XAT, GMAT etc.

Guys, never give up because it is not worth it, just not worth it. Just one score and admit and rest can be history.

Pain of hardwork is temporary but glory of achievement is permanent.

Let me not rant about my boring story. 

Lowest points:

1) CAT 2010 - got 17.XX %tile in verbal and same year I got 99.XX%tile in verbal in XAT.

2) CAT 2010 and CAT 2011 got 69.XX%tile and 64.XX%. Missed XAT cut off by 5%tile in one section. 

Met some remarkable people and cherished their dedication and got inspired by them

@r11gupta  , @the_hate   , @Samurai-X   , @shashank3012   , @Poluka_Praveen  , @Roger.Federer   ,@seba_catrpillar  , @seshendra   , @ThEbmr  , @sarcastix   , @TnT  , @Medhavin   , @prem_ravi , @ravi.tejapalla  , @GIXX3R 

Each one of them have a story and each story is enough to pick you up from slumber of mediocrity, so if you have time do go through their struggle stories. Very privileged to have studied with them. 

One regret !!

1) Identify what can work for you and adapt. I should have taken GMAT long time because that is the way to go for 4+ years of experience.

2) Go where your experience is valued but not taken as a burden.

3) Don't limit your options. You don't know what can work for you and what doesn't. 

4) US schools are not that expensive if you plan it well and target the schools which suit you. 

I have 9 years of work experience and I am going for 2 year program with a scholarship

A huge thanks for @pagalguy and @grondmaster   for entrusting with Mod role. has been an addiction to me for last 6 years and I loved every bit of it. 

Thanks to all the Puys for your support and help. And awesome PG meets in Bangalore. Those meets were always close to my heart. 

Flying off in exactly 5 days to start another rollar-coaster ride and I have waited for this for loooooooooooong time patiently but not anymore. 

So puys and pirls, never give up. There is light at the end of the tunnel, just one more bent in the tunnel and you will be there. Don't give up ever !!  

Signing off !

A. The recent communal violence in Hyderabad and in Bareilly a month ago has remained on the sidelines of national attention. 

B. In both cities, the present round of violence was preceded by mobilisations and speeches, primarily by Hindu fundamentalist groups. 
C. Fortunately, there was no death in the violence in Bareilly, while in Hyderabad only three people were killed. 
D. Yet, the scale, planning and causes behind the riots indicate a certain change in the morphology of the typical riot, a change which needs to be identified and understood if we want to keep religious sectarianism and violence in check. 
E. Communal violence has become so endemic to the polity of India that it has ceased to attract much attention outside its immediate area of impact, or unless it crosses very high levels of fatality and barbarity.
