Hi all Please carry forth the discussions on Data Sufficiency for CAT 2012 and other MBA exams for the upcoming season here. Link to thread of last year: http://www.pagalguy.com/forum/quantitative-questions-and-answers/70785-data-suffcie...
Page 1 of 4 In a college, five different subjects viz Physics, Chem, Botany, Zoology and maths are taught on five different days of same week starting from Monday to Friday. Is Chemistry taught on Friday?

1) Two subjects are taught between Zoology and Maths.Maths is taught before Zoology. Chem is taught immediately next to the day when physics is taught. Botany is not taught on Friday?

2)Three lectures are taught between Botany and Zoology. Maths is  taught immediately before Physics.

1st is sufficient, 2nd is not
2nd is sufficient, 1st is not
Both are together insufficient to solve the question
Either one or both statements individually sufficient
Both statements are together required to solve the answer of the 60 animals , 2/3 are either pigs or cows .How many are cows?

1)the farm has more than twice as many cows as it ha spigs
2) the farm has more than 12 pigs

Options:

(1) If answer can given using statement 1 only

(2) If answer can be given using statement 2 only

(3) If answer can be given using either 1 or 2.

(4) If answer cant be given even by using both 1 and 2.

(5) If answer can given using both 1 and 2. Write a comment
Write a comment... Are x and y both positive ?????

Options:

(2) If answer can be given using statement 2 only

(3) If answer can be given using either 1 or 2.

(4) If answer cant be given even by using both 1 and 2.

Write a comment... Consider the integers x,y,z . What is the min possi value of x^2 +y^2+z^2?

A : x+y+z= 89 B: Among x,y,z two are equal.
1)using A alone not B alone
2)using B alone not A alone
3)A n B togethr not either a or b alone
4) Cant be answered with a n b also.

Approach k sath likhna dostoon MG

Write a comment... hey even i understood this but go to know that statement 2 could only answer that is
due to the consideration of fractional nos. eg 15*2/3=10 hence even toh isliye man
If that is the case then x is 2/3 which is a fraction. Then it is neither odd nor even. so u meant taking as fractional implies x is neither odd nor even ...........ya u right man thanks got it
life has given u a chance to succed or not its ur choice Write a comment
Write a comment... Ans is (d) as anyone statement tells us that x is odd

hey even i understood this but go to know that statement 2 could only answer that is
due to the consideration of fractional nos.
eg 15*2/3=10 hence even toh isliye man

@erm bro the options are not clear.. is C option both taken together or both taken seperately??
3 and 15 are odd so odd*odd = odd no so we can answer with both taken alone.
yeah bt i got to know the answer to this question is by only statement II and not I
considering fractional nos.
eg 15*2/3=10

but i could understand how this is not true for 3*2/3=2

hence plz explain if understood
