23rd April Test (2000)
***********************
2 gals, one guy. Want to Date. Live on Same Street
with houses from 1100. guy stays in house number
less
than both girls.
Rita asks 2 questions
Is ur house number GT 50
Is ur house number a square ??
Sita asks 2 Questions
Is ur house number LT 25
Is ur house number a Cube ??
to both, first answer he gave wrong, second answer
he
spoke the truth. both girls thought he answered
both
truly and reached 2 different houses but both were
wrong. What was Sita's and the guys house number.
Another given Condition which i can't remmeber is
that
the sum of all these houses is a square, or smthg
like
that ???
This was the only one i cudn't answer. All the
rest
were easy.
Another 8 marks question was
John and 5 other friends, one who is a banker,
play
some [email protected]~*^%$ game to decide who will drive a car.
Everyone is given a Card out of A, King, Queen,
Jack,
Ten and Nine. other conditions are also given like
the
Broker did not finish last and the Gardener was
not
Mr. Banks and mr. Robin's card was lower than Mr.
Idiot's and so on. Just Construct a sort of 3D
Table
and go on cancelling the impossible sitautions. A
bit
tough to construct the table but once that is done
8
marks are yours.
Don't attempt the Series Question(23,344,4564, ?)
for
more than 2 minutes. Too tuf . everyone wasted
time
on
it.
Another 4 mark Question was abt a Grandfather ,
his
son and his Grandson's age. Easy One. Attempt
initially.
Another tough 8 marks question was abt Directions.
78
Villagaes are given. A is to the east of B and
south
of C. F is to the nort of D and east of G and so
on.
4
questions. Go for it if u are good in it and have
practised it. I answered 2 and the other 2 i
guessed.
One stupid Question. Sharad has 7 friends. Abhinav
visits him every day, Vikas every other Day,
Sachin
every 3 rd and so on . When will all of them meet
together. Answer is just multiply all numbers and
That's the answer.
A 2 or 3 marks Question
A man said to woman " your only brother's son is
my
wife's brother".
How is the woman related to the man's wife...
Answer is Aunt.
Tactic is to secure as many marks as possible in
the
shortest time. So GO FOR THE 8 MARKS QUESTIONS
FIRST.
Might take some time , but it's equivalent to
doing
2
4 marks questions in less the time.
Don't spend much time on any one question. COme
back
to it later and always make a new Graph. u might
have
done a mistake earlier
