SIMCAT 4 DI Set-1 Duckword Lewis Method-


In the Australia vs. South Africa cricket match at Johannesburg, Australia batted first and scored 356 runs in its 50-over innings. South Africa started batting and scored 292 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in 45 overs. At that time, it started raining and as a result, the inning of South Africa was truncated to 45 overs.  
Who won the match?

Australia
South Africa
It was a tie
More information is needed to answer the question

SIMCAT 4- QUANT Question 11 How did they deduce that the value of log2X will lie between 6 and 7?

log(base 2)x at x=64 = 6 and log(base2)x at x=128 =7 

since 2 digit numbers so the log value will be between these two ranges . 

Hope u get it !

SimCAT 4 - VA Question 5:

In the past five decades, the effective resolution of our televisions has increased by a factor of about twenty-one since 1941.

How is this sentence correct? 'In the past five decades' and 'since 1941' - isn't it redundant to use both these phrases?

Madness is like gravity. All it takes is a little push... And the push has come to shove.

@Apjoshua64 same here in Kolkata. Previously, I used to take the mocks in mostly empty exam halls and now it's always a full house of 20 students, even for self-proctored mocks. 😲

Simcat 4 IMS: 

VA-RC:  46 marks , 91.66 %ile

DI-LR:   20 marks,  75.95%ile

QA:      45 marks , 99.13 %ile

Overall :111 marks,  96.06 %ile

This was my second Simcat of this season . I had appeared for  Simcat 1 and scored 120 marks(95 %ile). I am really struggling in DI-LR-I am barely able to attempt 10-12 questions or 2.5 sets in 1 hour and get stuck on multiple questions.  I have solved a lot of DI - LR  sets from  CareerLauncher material but they are way too straightforward, just not of the same standard as in these mocks.  Any advice on how to improve in DI -LR performance...really nervous.

Don't be nervous, that would only make things worse. It's just the matter of solving a couple of sets more (considering the difficulty level). Analyze the mocks and solve Arun Sharma (tough sets). :-)
