Analyzing mocks for mistakes in paper strategy and previous year CAT papers for area specific prep would be a good start.

 Q1. of DI in simcat 7 

Nayar Pistons Pvt. Ltd manufactures pistons required for automobiles. The company has received a large order from a leading automobile company abroad. The company has only 6 days to manufacture the required number of pistons. The company employs 4 workers on the 1st day and 5 workers on the 6th day on this order. The number of workers working on this order starting 2nd day is either one more than or one less than the number of workers working on this order the previous day. All the workers work for 8 hours per day and manufacture equal number of pistons every hour. The company pays a uniform wage of Rs. 100 per hour to each worker. .....


Where is it hinted that total 6 workers were there..i assumed 5 due to last day fig..please help

Because permutation among two teams each of size 2 does not matter.

  Let speed of trains = v ,Speed of Basanti = b ,Relative speed of first train wrt Basanti = v-b ,Relative speed of second train wrt Basanti = v+b ,Distance travelled by first train in 8 minutes = distance travelled by second train in 6 minutes (by using relative speed) ,(v-b)*8 = (v+b)*6 ,V = 7b ,Let the time interval between two trains from pune is “x” , 7b*(8-x) = 8*b, X = 48/7

Last RC about greek music and Aristotle one, the 22nd question explanation is worong in my opinion. Can someone better explain it as in 2nd paragraph it is mentioned that Plato and Aristotle considered dance accompanying music to be exceedingly coarse and tasteless.

"There is no creature on Earth half so terrifying as a truly just man" "Victory is in Preparation" "All roads lead to Entropy"

 In fact, Plato and Aristotle considered music in which the lyre and flute played alone and not as the accompaniment of dance or song to be ‘exceedingly coarse and tasteless’.  So they meant exactly the opposite :)
