CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 3

Directions: Read the following passage and answer the given question.

Some researchers suggest that emotional intelligence can be learned and strengthened, while others claim it is an inborn characteristic. The purpose for developing our emotional literacy is to precisely identify and communicate our feelings. When we do this, we are helping nature fulfil its design for our feelings. We must know how we feel in order to be able to fill our emotional needs. And we must communicate our feelings in order to get the emotional support and understanding we need from others, as well as to show our emotional support and understanding to them.

Also, one of the first steps to developing our emotional intelligence is to improve our emotional literacy. In other words, to improve our ability to identify our feelings by their specific names – and the more specific we can be, the better. In the English language we have thousands of words which describe and identify our emotions, we just don't use many of them. If you are interested in working on your emotional literacy, the first step is to start using simple, three word sentences such as these: I feel sad. I feel motivated. I feel offended. I feel appreciate. I feel hurt. I feel disrespected. When we talk about our feelings using three word sentences, we are sending what have been called "I messages". On the other hand, when we say things like "You make me so jealous", we are sending a "you message". These "you messages" typically put the other person on the defensive, which hurts communication and relationships rather than helping.

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 11

Directions: Please read the passage below and answer the question that follows

Throughout the world, society stereotypes man as strong, aggressive, logical, insensitive, unemotional, impatient, non-nurturing and mechanically talented while a woman is stereotyped as illogical, emotional, sensitive, patient and naturally nurturing. These stereotypes have exercised a strong hold on how society has viewed men and women. We can see that stereotypes for both man and woman have some positive and some negative characteristics.

Early psychological research suggested that females score high on verbal skills while males score higher on mathematical and spatial skills. Studies also found that men listen with their left hemisphere while women with both hemispheres, which suggests that in addition to content of the statement, women also pay attention to the tone and emotion. However, later researches have found that these differences in cognitive abilities of the two sexes have become less and less obvious as the society has begun to treat the two genders as equal. It has been found that male and female identity begins to develop as early as one year of age, owing to the way our society socialises our children. As a child grows, he/she is told to behave according to what is considered appropriate for his/her sex. The influence that culture can have on our personality was revealed in a landmark study by Margaret Mead in which it was found that there is no identity crisis during adolescence in Samoa tribe due to their liberal gender attitude.

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 16

Directions: Choose the correct option to fill in the blanks.

The village headman was unlettered, but he was no fool. He could see through the ________ of the businessman's proposition and promptly ___________ him down.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 16 "Not a fool" suggests that the village headman had common sense. The words ''see through'' and ''proposition'' indicate that the ''headman'' realised the deception behind the ''proposition''. So, a word similar to ''deception'' is required in the first blank. This is found only in options 1 and 4. But, for the second blank ''forced'' does not fit. A person can accept or turn down a ''proposition''.

"Sophistry" means "the use of clever but false arguments, especially with the intention of deceiving''.

Thus, 4 is the best choice.

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 17

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 19

Directions: Select the most appropriate words to fill in the blanks.

Advocates say the idea of a basic income eliminates poverty traps and _____ income while _____ the individual and reducing paperwork.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 19 The 'idea of basic income' would not earn income. So, options 2 and 3 are ruled out. To maintain parallelism with 'reducing' we need to use 'empowering'. So, option 1 is correct.
CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 20

Directions: Four alternatives are given for the idiom/phrase underlined in the sentence. Choose the alternative which best expresses the meaning of the idiom/phrase.

His behaviour indicates that he has blue blood.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 20 'Blue blood' means 'a person of noble birth; someone who is born in a socially prominent family'.

An electronic device beeps after every 60 seconds. A different device beeps after every 62 seconds. They beeped together at 10 a.m. The next time that they would beep together at the earliest is at

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 23 The LCM of 60 and 62 is 1860, which is equal to 31 minutes.

(60 = 2 × 30)

(62 = 2 × 31)

(∵ LCM = 2 × 30 × 31)

1 minute = 60 seconds

So, (2 ×30×31) ÷ 60 = 31 minutes

So, they would beep together again after 31 minutes at 10:31 am.

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 24

Sushma had marked up her jewelry set up by 33.3%. What approximate percentage discount could she offer if she wanted to earn a profit of 18%?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 24 Let CP = x

MP = 1.333x

SP = 1.18x

Let the discount be y%.

⇒ SP = 1.333x - 1.333x x (y/100)

⇒ 1.333x - 1.333x x (y/100) = 1.18x

⇒ 133.3x - 1.333xy = 118x

⇒ 15.3 = 1.333y

⇒ y = 11.477% ≈ 11.5%

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 25

Given below are two statements.

Statement 1: A set of numbers arranged in ascending order is: 30, 30, 31, 32, 32, a, b, 38, 38, 40. The arithmetic mean and the median of the set are 34 and 33, respectively. Then a × b = 1156.

Statement 2: Let a and b be any 2 positive integers. If a + 3b = 24, then a – b = 4.

Which of the above is correct?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 25 The mean of the set is 34.

a + b + 271 = 340

a + b = 69

Given series

30, 30, 31, 32, 32, a, b, 38, 38, 40

n = 10, which is even

To find the median, we have to find average of n/2 th term and ( n/2 + 1)th term

n/2th term = 5th term = 32

(n/2 + 1)th term = 6th term = a

Therefore, median of the given data is:

Average of 5th term and 6th term = = 33

32 + a = 66

a = 34

∴ a + b = 69

34 + b = 69

b = 35

a × b = 1190

Statement 2

The information given in the condition is not proper because there are two variables and the equation is only 1.

So, statement 2 is false.

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 27

Directions: Answer the given question based on the following graph:

Export of Processed Food Tins from a Company

Q. The value per tin was minimum in which of the following years?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 27 Value per tin = Total value/Total number of tins

In 1996, it is 150/100 = 1.5.

In 1998, 330/150 = 2.2

In 1997, 150/75 = 2

In 1999, 400/160 = 2.5

In 2000, 500/200 = 2.5

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 28

From a vessel containing 60 litres of pure wine, 4 litres are drawn out and replaced by water. 4 litres of the mixture is again drawn out and replaced with water. What is the ratio of wine to water in the resultant mixture?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 28 A/Q = (1 – q/Q)n

Where A : Amount of the original liquid (wine) left in the mixture at the end of the transaction

Q : Total volume of the mixture = 60 litres

q : Quantity taken away in each transaction = 4 litres

n : Number of times the transaction is performed = 2

Hence, A/Q = (1 – 4/60)2 = 142/152 = 196/225

Thus, the ratio of wine in the mixture is 196/225.

Hence, the ratio of water in the mixture is 1 – 196/225 = 29/225 i.e. the ratio of wine to water is 196 : 29.

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 29

In an association of 250 people, the Britishers and Spaniards are in the ratio of 3 : 2. After adding some more Spaniards in the association, the number of Britishers became equal to the number of Spaniards. The mean pension that they received of all the group is $500 and the mean of Spaniards' pension is $50 more than that of the Britishers.

Which of the following statements is/are correct?

(A) Mean of Britishers' pension is $475.

(B) Mean of Britishers' pension is $470.

(C) Mean of Spaniards' pension is $525.

(D) Mean of Spaniards' pension is $520.

(E) Mean of Spaniards' pension is $500.

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 29 Let the final mean of pension of all the Britishers in an association be x.

Total number of people = 250

Ratio of the number of Britishers and Spaniards (initially) = 3 : 2

Hence, initial number of Britishers = 3/5 × 250 = 150

Initial number of Spaniards = 2/5 × 250 = 100

New ratio after adding Spaniards = 1 : 1

So, the number of Spaniards added = 50

Now, total number of people in a association = 250 + 50 = 300

New average pension of all 300 persons = 500

Now, we get,

150x + [150 × (x + 50)] = 300 × 500

300x + 7500 = 1,50,000

300x = 1,42,500

x = 475

Hence, the mean of all the Britishers' pension in the association = $475

Mean of all the Spaniards' pension = 475 + 50 = $525

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 30 In 1998, (A + B + C + D + E) = 140

In 1999, (A + B + C + D + E) = 154

Percentage increase = 14/140 × 100 = 10%

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 31

A 7-character code is such that only even digits occur at even places and only odd digits occur at odd places, e.g. 1436789. How many such codes can be made from digits 1-9, if repetition of digits is allowed?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 31 Odd digits: 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

Even digits: 2, 4, 6, and 8

Number of ways to fill an odd place = 5

Number of ways to fill an even place = 4

Therefore,

Total number of cases = (5)4 × (4)3

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 32

A boat takes 6 hours to travel from A to B (upstream). The river flows at the rate of 2 kmph. How long will the boat take to travel from B to A (downstream), if the distance from A to B is 36 km?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 32 Upstream

Let t be the time taken by the boat to travel from A to B = 6 hours

Let V1 be the speed of the boat traveling upstream = x

Let V2 be the speed of the stream = 2 kmph

Distance = 36 km

V1 - V2 = 36/6 = 6 kmph

V1 = 8 kmph

Downstream:

V1 = 8 kmph

V2 = 2 kmph

Net speed = V1 + V2 = 10 kmph

Distance = 36 km

Time = 36/10 = 3.6 hours

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 33

Two taps A and B can fill a tank in 5 hours and 20 hours, respectively. If both the taps are open, then due to leakage in the tank, it takes 30 minutes more to fill the tank. If the tank is full, how long will it take for the tank to empty out due to leakage alone?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 33 Part filled by (A + B) in 1 hour = 1/5 + 1/20 = 1/4

So, A and B together can fill the tank in 4 hours.

Part filled by (A + B) due to leakage, in 1 hour = 1/4 - 2/9 = 1/36

CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 89

Directions: Read the following information carefully and answer the given question.

A minimum viable product (MVP) is a development technique in which a new product or website is developed with sufficient features to satisfy early adopters. The final, complete set of features is only designed and developed after considering feedback from the product's initial users. This technique helps them in making the final product much better. With the help of MVP concept, the research or the marketing team will come to know where the product is lacking and or what are its strengths or weaknesses.

MVP has three distinct features. One is that it will have enough features for consumers to purchase the product (it becomes easier for the company to market it), the other is that it will have some sort of a feedback mechanism wherein users would be able to send their feedback about the product. And, lastly it should have enough future benefits for consumers who choose to adopt the product first (Google gave free upgrade of its OS to all Nexus users). The idea is to get feedback from the consumers which will in turn help in making the desired changes in the final product. MVP actually tests the usage scenario that is much more helpful for the company to make changes to the final product.

The developing team of an MVP will not waste any time on anything beyond the bare minimum, and build every other feature over time as they assess the customers' wishes and preferences as they start using the product. The product may change even dramatically or even get abandoned as feedback from users may significantly diverge from the original project. However, the developing teams will not waste any resources (efforts, time, money, advertising) on a product that no one really wants, needs, or likes. The catch to this development technique is that it assumes that early adopters can see the vision or promise of the final product and provide the valuable feedback needed to guide developers forward.

The whole focus is learning during product development by collecting information from customers that are validated already. Observing users as they utilize the product is much more reliable than trying to validate marketing hypotheses with questionnaires or forecasts. A common pitfall is to release a bare-bone product that is so much below the users' expectations that is not viable at all. In general, the MVP technique is particularly viable for technically-oriented products used by technical users who are often keen on providing practical insights on how to improve or update the product. The concept of MVP has, in fact, been widely adopted by many verticals in the informatics industry. For example, many video games today spend many months (sometimes years) as early access products and are slowly developed as the community grows. Some popular franchises, such as Farmville, fully leveraged the concept of MVP by implementing new gameplay features over time while progressively improving overall user experience.

Q. Which of the following limitations, if true, would hinder the proper adoption of a minimum viable product?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 89 (1) - Even if the product is expensive, it does not mean that it cannot attract feedback. The product may be a high-cost product intended to attract feedback from a set of special users only.

(2) - Even if the free upgrades are there for a limited period, this cannot hinder the adoption of MVPs. The fact that free upgrades are being offered is what matters.

(3) - Standalone surveys are less effective than actual usage metrics. However, when these surveys are conducted specifically to record usage, these can be effective. Hence, it cannot impede the adoption of MVPs.

(4) - This is the correct answer as inferable from 'A common pitfall...expectations that are not viable at all' in the last paragraph.

Q. Which of the following statements is true in context of the passage?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 90 (1) - Nothing is inferable with respect to this. In fact, it is likely that consumers have less knowledge and are willing to provide feedback only after using the product.

(2) - No 'significant' expectations are present because of the 'bare' nature of MVP.

(3) - This is true as mentioned in 'Observing users as they...questionnaires or forecasts' in the last paragraph.

(4) - This is incorrect as inferable from 'not waste any resources...needs, or likes' in the third paragraph.

Q. Which of the following is an appropriate example of a minimum viable product?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 91 Only option 1 is the correct example of an MVP. Since the beta programme is first launched before full deployment, it satisfies the features of being bare minimum, potential to improve and inviting customer feedback. Option 2 'game' is already critically acclaimed and hence cannot be an MVP. In option 3, the prototype is only meant for design rather than its actual usage by customers.

Q. Which of the following best describes the meaning of a minimum viable product (MVP)?

Detailed Solution for CMAT Mock Test - 5 (New Pattern) - Question 92 Certain characteristics that distinguish an MVP from other products is its bare nature, its capacity to improve and its ability to incorporate feedback.
