Hii guys...

I am new to PG and to lucknow for CAT prep, so i need ur help. I have to join a coaching institute. No idea about which is the best one !! Have heard about IMS/CL/SATYAM/TIME. I personally visited the CL centers , and didn't find it quite impressive (the faculty seemed very ordinary).
So please help me to start wid my prep for CAT 2013.
This thread looked quite relevant to me and so i am expecting a genuine guidance.

Thank you

Infinitives
The must know concept.

The Infinitive

Recognize an infinitive when you see one.
To sneeze, to smash, to cry, to shriek, to jump, to dunk, to read, to eat, to slurp-all of these are infinitives. An infinitive will almost always begin with to followed by the simple form of the verb, like this:

to + verb = infinitive

Important Note: Because an infinitive is not a verb, you cannot add s, es, ed, or ing to the end. Ever!

Infinitives can be used as nouns, adjectives, or adverbs. Look at these examples:

To sleep is the only thing Eli wants after his double shift waiting tables at the neighborhood caf.

To sleep functions as a noun because it is the subject of the sentence.

No matter how fascinating the biology dissection is, Emanuel turns his head and refuses to look.

To look functions as a noun because it is the direct object for the verb refuses.

Wherever Melissa goes, she always brings a book to read in case conversation lags or she has a long wait.

To read functions as an adjective because it modifies book.

Richard braved the icy rain to throw the smelly squid eyeball stew into the apartment dumpster.

To throw functions as an adverb because it explains why Richard braved the inclement weather.

Recognize an infinitive even when it is missing the to.
An infinitive will almost always begin with to. Exceptions do occur, however. An infinitive will lose its to when it follows certain verbs. These verbs are feel, hear, help, let, make, see, and watch.

The pattern looks like this:

special verb + direct object + infinitive - to

Here are some examples:

As soon as Theodore felt the rain splatter on his hot, dusty skin, he knew that he had a good excuse to return the lawn mower to the garage.

Felt = special verb; rain = direct object; splatter = infinitive minus the to.

When Danny heard the alarm clock buzz, he slapped the snooze button and burrowed under the covers for ten more minutes of sleep.

Heard = special verb; alarm clock = direct object; buzz = infinitive minus the to.

Although Dr. Ribley spent an extra class period helping us understand logarithms, we still bombed the test.

Helping = special verb; us = direct object; understand = infinitive minus the to.

Because Freddie had never touched a snake, I removed the cover of the cage and let him pet Squeeze, my seven-foot python.

Let = special verb; him = direct object; pet = infinitive minus the to.

Since Jose had destroyed Sylvia's spotless kitchen while baking chocolate-broccoli muffins, she made him take her out for an expensive dinner.

Made = special verb; him = direct object; take = infinitive minus the to.

I said a prayer when I saw my friends mount the Kumba, a frightening roller coaster that twists and rolls like a giant sea serpent.

Saw = special verb; my friends = direct object; mount = infinitive minus the to.

Hoping to lose her fear of flying, Rachel went to the airport to watch passenger planes take off and land, but even this exercise did not convince her that jets were safe.

Watch = special verb; passenger planes = direct object; take, land = infinitives minus the to.

To split or not to split?
The general rule is that no word should separate the to of an infinitive from the simple form of the verb that follows. If a word does come between these two components, a split infinitive results. Look at the example that follows:

Wrong:Sara hopes to quickly finish her chemistry homework so that she can return to the more interesting Stephen King novel she had to abandon.
Right:Sara hopes to finish her chemistry homework quickly so that she can return to the more interesting Stephen King novel she had to abandon.
Some English teachers believe that thou shall not split infinitives was written on the stone tablets that Moses carried down from the mountain. Breaking the rule, in their eyes, is equivalent to killing, stealing, coveting another man's wife, or dishonoring one's parents. If you have this type of English teacher, then don't split infinitives!

Other folks, however, consider the split infinitive a construction, not an error. They believe that split infinitives are perfectly appropriate, especially in informal writing.

In fact, an infinitive will occasionally require splitting, sometimes for meaning and sometimes for sentence cadence. One of the most celebrated split infinitives begins every episode of Star Trek: "To boldly go where no one has gone before ...." Boldly to go? To go boldly? Neither option is as effective as the original!

When you are making the decision to split or not to split, consider your audience. If the piece of writing is very formal and you can maneuver the words to avoid splitting the infinitive, then do so. If you like the infinitive split and know that its presence will not hurt the effectiveness of your writing, leave it alone.

Thoda Gerund bhi jaan lo.

Gerund

Gerund is the name given to the present participle form of a verb that is used as a noun. In the following sentences the gerund is shown in red:

Smoking is bad for your health. (gerund as subject)
A popular hobby in England is stamp-collecting. (gerund as complement)
I dislike shopping. (gerund as object)
Gerunds are not difficult to use as subjects or complements, as in the above sentences. The problem arises when the learner wants to use the verb-noun as an object and does not know whether the gerund or the infinitive is required. Here are some examples of the variety of use:

She doesn't enjoy working on Sundays. (gerund only)
She objects to working on Sundays. (gerund only)
She agreed to work on Sunday. (infinitive only)
She hates to work on Sundays. / She hates working on Sundays. (both infinitive and gerund possible: same meaning)
She stopped eating. (gerund - meaning: she did not eat any more)
She stopped to eat. (infinitive - meaning: she stopped what she was doing and started to eat)
This is a difficult aspect of English grammar. The learner must use the dictionary carefully case-by-case to make the correct choice of gerund or infinitive.

Lucknow Dt 2011??? bani hai kya, aur kya banne ke chances hein???


Lucknow DT was formed last year,all thanks to the efforts of Varun ( visioniim_acl ) and Rohit ( cadet1970).To form a DT you need to have at least 11 members and they must devote time towards the thread.DT is good idea provided it stays so until the season ends.Invariably,this doesn't happen for Lucknow.Still if you guys have the conviction,do contact Varun on this.I think he should be in a better position to answer this.

All the best guys !


And yes,the answer to the above question is correct

Tri. ABC is right angled at A. D is a point on AB such that CD = 1. AE is the altitude from A to
BC. If BD = BE = 1, what is the length of AD?



if point of intersection of AE and CD is marked as F
than use similarity of triangles for these pairs
ABC and CEF

ABC and ABE
to get the answer as 2^3 - 1

Factorize karenge x^3-x=y
==> x(x^2-1)=y
==> x(x-1)(x+1)=y

to x=2 se 10 tak to values satisfy karing sirji..so,9 values.

total of 9 values of x

y= x^3 - x= x(x-1)(x+1)
y is product of three consecutive integers so divisible by 6

from x=2 to x=10
total 9 values
