Means Is this some kind of rule .?

@marim  ·  0 karma

@Patsum_MBA ya it's a formula for eg-take no 6, 6=2*3 so it has total 2 odd factors    therefore,2-1=1.so 6 can be written as a sum of 2 or more consecutive no.s in1 way i.e.1+2+3

In TIME Bangalore they taught an unique technique to solve Syllogisms questions assigning Tick (✓) and Cross (X). Following that two ✓ means no conclusion etc. Was a student in 2012. Gave the material and forgot the technique too.

Sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

@monali_dey agree..venn diagram works best for 4 statements

@rheetammitra  ·  320 karma

@Rupali4 Ya but if u deduce conclusion quickly n then again compare with other statements, it works well.

Comparing fractions

If percentage change in numerator is lesser  than percentage change in denominator, then resultant fraction has more value than the original fraction.

Plz explain this. This is useful in solving DI ques.

A. This very insatiability of the photographing eye changes the terms of confinement in the cave, our world.

B. Humankind lingers unregenerately in Plato's cave, still revelling, its age-old habit, in mere images of truth.

C. But being educated by photographs is not like being educated by older images drawn by hand; for one thing, there are a great many more images around, claiming our attention.

D. The inventory started in 1839 and since then just about everything has been photographed, or so it seems.

E. In teaching us a new visual code, photographs alter and enlarge our notions of what is worth looking at and what we have a right to observe.
