Hey everyone, this is regarding a question of AIMCAT 2005 DILR section. The set concerned with the number of persons joining the gym says 9 to be the cumulative number of persons joining on Jan 1st but I tried solving it and 8 comes out to be the posssible cumulative number. Can anyone explain why it is 9?

@Awesomiss  ·  1 karma

@tenfeettall Yes but 9 doesn't fit into the picture. 2+!+!+!+!+!+! comes out to be 8 not 9. I think this is an error in this set itself.

The height of one of the persons on 01 Jan is unknown. I think you are missing that person.

Hey guys this is a question related to AIMCAT 2006, but since it's a deadzone there, I'm positing this here. DILR Truth Liar Alternator set me, it is said that Canary is a liar. But in the 2nd statement he says "Loki does not live on the 2nd floor" , so it must mean he's lying and Loki should be on the 2nd floor right. But Loki is a truth teller and he says he's on 4th floor which is a total contradiction. How does that work out guys?

Canary's 2nd statement is actually 2 statements connected with the logical connective "AND". Which means, for his sentence to be true, both parts of his sentence have to be True. So though, Loki doesn't live on the floor numbered 2 may be true, if the first statement "I live on the floor numbered 1" is false, then the whole statement is false.

@tenfeettall Ohh thanks! That very well should be the explanation. Although going by the rules of the language and the usage of words, it shouldn't have happened. DILR questions many a time holds subtle hints in the language used. But here going by that same logic of language, that shouldn't have held true. Anyway Thanks for clearing it up. Cheers! :-)

Extended Window:

VARC 59 (22 C, 9 IC) : No comments.

LRDI 24 (8 C, 0 IC) : No comments.

QA 41 (15 C, 4 IC) : No comments.

OA: 124 (45 C, 13 IC) : No comments.

Can't believe TIME actually bought into a CAT computational error and tweaked the format to this extent. But, it was for good. You never know. Maybe it is the actual plan. This QA was something else.

CAT 18- 96.48|| XAT 19- 96.97|| IIFT 18- 99.32|| SNAP 18- 99.77|| NMAT 18-221|| CAT 19- 98.67|| XAT 20- Moh Maaya|| IIFT 19- 94.59|| SNAP 19- 99.55|| NMAT 19-229

@Fire510 Exactly. I think people were caught in the no mans' land between number of attempts (As there were 38 in total) and accuracy (Always a risk with with more attempts). But baat whi h. TIME apne saath khele toh chalegaa. Agar IIM waale khelne pe aa gaye toh.......

VARC 98 (33C, 34A) (99.99) LRDI 26 (9C, 13A) (95.56) QA 35 (14C, 25A) (90.55) An unexpected setback. Tried to ramp up speed for attempts, accuracy took a steep dive. Expected around 20C. Will need to ensure this doesn't happen again. Overall 159 AIR 10 99.9 QA, a little consistency please!

VARC - (26/31) - 76 - Consistently doing well in this. One of these days I am going to reach my target score of 80.

DILR - (9/11) - 25 - Spent way too much time on sets I didn't even answer. DILR has always been inconsistent for me.

QA - (9/13) - 25 - This section is going to make or break CAT 2019 for me. Focusing all my energy into this and still not seeing any improvement.

OA - 126 (97.88)

Until the next one!
