CAT 2017 Verbal Ability Preparation - PaGaLGuY


A. It is against this background and in this context that we must begin our understanding of political theory.

B. Students of anthropology and of animal behavior are making it increasingly clear that in man, most of the other primates, and in many other animal species as well, social life and organization are primary biological survival devices.

C. What we call political and social organization- the customs, practices, and procedures that with varying degrees of firmness hold men together in interrelated groups- is perhaps the most important form of human adaptation to environment, both external and internal.

D. Man has no leathery armor like a turtle or spines like a porcupine, but he does have social life and the capacity to organize it effectively for survival purposes.

Guys.. I couldn't find any LRDI for CAT 2016 page.. so created one..

Lets start practicing that as well .. plz join it!!

These are the threads for CAT 2016, for those who aren't able to find them.. 😃




A number lies between 300 and 400. If the number is added to the number formed by reversing the digits, the sum is 888 and if the unit's digit and the ten's digit change places, the new number exceeds the original number by 9. Find the number.


Figures show that homebuyers looking for 90% mortgage deals now have more choice, with 244 products open to them, compared with 199 at the start of this year and 77 two years ago. But some would argue that if there are signs of hope for homebuyers on the mortgage front, they are faint. The rates on these deals are usually much higher than those paid by people who can afford to stump up hefty deposits. While the average new two-year fixed rate for someone who can manage a 10% deposit has edged down to 5.95%, its lowest level since early 2008, this compares with the 3.73% that someone who can manage 40% would pay. And many of the 90% and 95% LTV (loanto- value) products have major strings attached.

1   These often prove counterproductive; many prospective homebuyers give up scouting for a home.

2  There will often be qualifying requirements and/or the credit scoring will be tough.

3  In all, the lending landscape hasn't changed much.

4  As a result, an average homebuyer feels exasperated.

5  Recession is also one of the possible reasons for this difficult situation.

Can someone please help?

It is simply absurd to accuse someone in Indian politics of autocracy and undemocratic behavior because our entire political culture has been undemocratic (leader-centric) and hypocritical. As the veteran politician, the late P V Narasimha Rao candidly wrote in his memoirs, our political culture has always been feudal at the core, where the leader assumed all powers. Intra-party democracy never existed in any party. This country, proclaiming itself a republic, vesting sovereignty in its people, actually practises the worst kind of concentration of power in a supreme leader. Can there be any greater hypocrisy than this? It began right at the dawn of self-rule: Mahatma Gandhi, the supreme leader of the Congress chose Nehru to be the king and simply asked other contenders like Sardar Patel and Maulana Azad to endorse his choice.

  • It is again a corollary of the feudal political culture that makes the leader assume all powers to do whatever he or she likes and certainly, Mayawati is not the one who set the precedent.
  • Barring a few short preludes, when, for instance, Lal Bahadur Shastri or Narasimha Rao became prime minister (albeit not for democratic reasons), for a large part of its post-independence period, India has been ruled by the Nehru dynasty.
  • Indian politics is not new to this; for instance in the Mahabharata the entire ‘epic’ unfolds as a result of unstinted power vested in the hands of a leader.
  • There is practically no accountability of the leaders to anyone except the token concern for their voters at the end of five years, which is also at best a momentary surge and not an underlying principle.
