Guptaaastha,

Try the crack-gmat.com free full length diagnostic test. I thought it was close to the real GMAT CAT.

If you buy the Princeton review material, it comes with 4 full length tests, which are of decent quality too.

GMATPrep has two full length CATs, you can take one of those tw...

Avinash,

Good to know about your interest. And I welcome you aboard.

For the question related to which material you should buy ( physical form ),

Kaplan 800

OG-11 ( which you already have )

should suffice the need considering that you have the other xsniped stuff like OG-10, 1000 ...

I think answer choice D explains it :)

Because the option says, spreading of chemical in potato fields

makes the nemetodes come out of the cyst.

And then, look back to the manifacturer's suggestion to spread the

chemical while the potatos are not planned.

So, option D quantitativ...

Answer choice as pointed by dumbJoe, man-h , is B ( 2 alone sufficient ).

The reason I shared this question is, to let you all know the following points :

As told ealier , posting the explaination for this question :

If you call the three numbers x, y and z, and let x be the biggest, then the question tells you that x = square root of the product of x, y and z. If you square both sides of this equation you get:

x = xyz (which gets rid of the...

Sharad, good explaination that the lengths of tangents from external point will be same.

So, the sides have to be x+6, x+8 ;

but then the later explaination in the solution diagram assumes that the extension of the

angular bisectors are going to become parpenticulars onto the apposite si...
