PROBLEMS FACING POTENTIAL EXPORTERS
Many firms fail because when they begin exporting, they have not researched the target markets or have not developed an international marketing plan to be successful. A firm must clearly define goals objectives and potential problems. Secondly it must develop a definitive plan to accomplish it's objective regardless of problems involved. Unless the firm is fortunate enough to possess a staff with considerable expertise, it may not be able to take this crucial first step without qualified outside guidance.
Often top management is not committed enough to overcome the initial difficulties and financial requirements of exporting. It can often take more time and effort to establish a firm in a foreign market than in domestic one. Although the early delays and costs involved in exporting may seem difficult to justify when compared to established domestic trade the exporter should take a more objective view of this process and carefully monitor international marketing efforts through these early difficulties. If a good foundation is laid for export business the benefits derived should eventually outweigh the investment.
Another problem area is in the selection of foreign distributor. The complications involved in overseas communications and transportation require international distributors to act with greater independence than their domestic counterparts also since a new exporter's trademarks and reputation is usually unknown in the foreign market. Foreign customers may buy on the strength of distributing agent's reputation. A firm should therefore conduct a thorough evaluation of the distributor's facilities, the personnel handling its account and managements methods employed.
Another common difficultly for new exporter is the neglect of the export market once the domestic one booms: too many companies only concentrate on exporting when there is recession. Others may refuse to modify products to meet the regulations or cultural preferences of other countries. Local safety regulations cannot be ignored by exporters. If necessary modifications are not made at the factory the distributor must make them, this is usually at a greater cost and probably not as satisfactory as it should be. It should also be noted that the resulting smaller profit margin makes the account less attractive.
If exporters expect distributing agents to actively promote their accounts they must be trained and their performance must be continually monitored. This requires a company's marketing executive to be located permanently in the distributor's geographical areas until there is sufficient business to support the representative. The distributor should also be treated on an equal basis with domestic counterparts for e.g. special discount offers, sales incentive programmes and special credit terms should be available.
Considering a joint venture or licensing agreement is another option for new exporters. However, many companies still dismiss international marketing as unviable. There are a number of reasons for this. There may be import restrictions in the target market. The company may lack sufficient financial resources or its product line may be too limited. Yet many products that can compete on a national basis can be successful in the majority of world markets. In general, all that is needed for success is flexibility in using the proper combinations of marketing techniques.

If a, b, c are three positive integers such that a and b are in the ratio 3 : 4 while b and c are in the ratio 2 : 1, then which one of the following is a possible value of (a + b + c)?
► a : b = 3 : 4 and b : c = 2 : 1
►Multiplying the second ratio by 2, we have
► a : b = 3 : 4
► b : c = 4 : 2
►Therefore, a : b : c = 3 : 4 : 2.
► a = 3k, b = 4k, c = 2k.
►Since a, b and c are positive integers, their sum should be 9k, a positive integer.
►From the options, only choice (3), which is 207, is a multiple of 9.
After the division of a number successively by 3, 4 and 7 the remainders obtained are 2, 1 and 4 respectively. What will be the remainder if 84 divide the same number?
►Since Dividend = Divisor × Quotient + Remainder, we have three divisors D_{1, }D_{2, }D_{3, }as 3, 4, 7 and their respective remainders as R_{1,} R_{2}, R_{3 }as 2, 1, 4.
►Taking quotient Q_{3 }= 1, we have D_{3 }× Q_{3} + R_{3 = }7 × 1 + 4 = 11. Now 11 becomes Q_{2} for D_{2} and so on.
►Now solving 4 × 11 + 1 = 45, 3 × 45 + 2 = 137.
►Now when 84 divides 137 remainder is 53.

A beautiful equation is an equation whose roots are distinct and difference between roots is at least 26. Find the number of positive integral values of p if x^{2} – p x + 12 = 0 is a beautiful equation.
Let roots are α & β
Then and α + β = p and α β = 12.
► (α  β)^{2} = (α + β)^{2}  4 α β
► p^{2}  4(12)
► p^{2}  48
Given α  β ≥ 26
► (α  β)^{2} ≥ 676
► p^{2}  48 ≥ 676
► p^{2} ≥ 724
► p ∈ (∞  √724) ∪ (√724, ∞)
So, there is infinity many positive integral values of P.

Two boats start from points A and B of a river and travel towards each other with the same speeds of 5 kmph. The first boat covers half the distance covered by the second boat when they meet. After that point the first boat increases its speed and both the boats reach their respective destinations at the same time. What was the stream speed and the increase in the speed of the boat?
Let the initial distance between the point A and B be 3x km, the stream speed be s kmph and the increase in speed of the first boat be y kmph.
Since the speed of both the boats is same and the first boat covers half the distance covered by the second boat, so the first boat is moving upstream and second boat downstream.
Thus,
►x/(5 – s) = 2x/(5 + s)
►5x + sx = 10x – 2sx
►3sx = 5x
►s = 5/3 kmph.
After meeting, the first boat increases its speed and both reach their respective destinations at the same time, hence,
► 2x/(5 + y – 5/3) = x/(5 + 5/3)
► So, y = 10 kmph.
Hence option 1.
ABCD is an isosceles trapezium such that AD  BC, AB = 5 cm, AD = 8 cm and BC = 14 cm. What is the area (in cm^{2}) of trapezium?

BC can be divided as, BC = BE + EF + FC,
such that, EF = AD = 8 cm
^{and BE = FC =} _{}^{= 3 cm}
Solving, AE = DF = = 4 cm
Area trapezium ABCD
► Area △ABE + Area rectangle AEFD + Area △CDF
► (1/2) x 3 x 4 + 8 x 4 + (1/2) x 3 x 4 = 44 cm^{2}

A and B who are 1 km away from each other, start moving towards each other at speeds of 16 m/s and 24 m/s respectively. Each time they meet, they reduce their speeds to 7/9^{ths} of their previous speeds respectively. What distance more has B traveled when they meet for the 8^{th} time?
► The 1^{st} time they meet, the total distance covered by them will be 1 km.
► After that, both reach the opposite ends and turn back to meet somewhere in between.
► So, the total distance traveled by them between the 1^{st} and the 2^{nd} meeting is 2 km. This will be true of all subsequent meetings.
► So, the total distance traveled by them when they meet for the 8^{th} time will be 1 + 7 × 2 = 15 km.
► Since the time taken is fixed,A and B will travel the 15 km in the ratio of their speeds, i.e., 2 : 3.
► Thus, B will have traveled (1/5) × 15 = 3 km more.
A pipe can fill a tank in 15 minutes. A leak present 1/3 of height of tank results in 50% more time to fill the tank than the time taken when leak is present at 2/3 of height of tank. Find time taken to fill the tank when leak is present at 1/5th the height of tank.
Let the leak can empty the tank in X min.
Then speed after the level of water raise to leak =
Now for both cases i.e. first 1/3^{rd} and last 1/3^{rd} of tank is filled with same speed
In first case speed is
so, 1/3 ^{rd} will be filled in time.
But in 2^{nd} case speed is 1/15 so 1/3^{rd} will be filled in 5 min.

Solving it we will get X = 45
So if leak is at 1/5^{th} then after leak it will be filled in 3 min.
For next 4/5^{th }speed will be
So, total time = 18 + 3 = 21 min.
A survey conducted in a library shows that 3746 persons like to read thriller novels, 2829 persons like classical novels and 4225 like romantic novels. The number of persons who like both thriller and classical novels but not romantic novels is 30% of the number of persons who like only thriller novels. Number of persons who like both classical and romantic novels but not thriller novels is 50% of the number of persons who like only classical novels. The number of persons who like both thriller and romantic novels but not classical novels is 60% of the number of persons who like only romantic novels. If 108 persons like to read all the three types of novels, then find the total number of persons on whom the survey was done in the library. (All the persons surveyed like at least one of the three types of the novels)
►Let x, y and z be the number of persons who like to read only thriller, only romantic and only classical novels, respectively.
⇒ x + 0.3x + 0.6y + 108 = 3746. i.e., 13x + 6y = 36380 .......(1)
⇒ z + 0.3x + 0.5z + 108 = 2829. i.e., 3x + 15z = 27210 .........(2)
⇒ y + 0.6y + 0.5z + 108 = 4225. i.e., 16y + 5z = 41170 .........(3)
⇒ (3) × 3 –(2) gives 16y – x = 32100 ..........(4)
⇒ (4)× 13 + (1) gives y = 2120, x = 1820 and z = 1450
►Thus the total number of persons who were surveyed in the library
⇒ x + y + z + 0.3x + 0.6y + 0.5z + 108 = 1820 + 1450 + 2120 + 546 + 725 + 1272 + 108 = 8041

An astronomical clock has its dial divided into 24 divisions instead of 12, and the small hand goes round in 24 hours, the large hand going round once every hour. The 24th hour is noon. Find when the hands are at right angles between 24 and 1.
►Now, the hour hand covers = 15 degrees in 60 min.
►In 1 min. it covers 1/4 degrees and minute hand covers 360/60 = 6 degrees in 1 min.
►Relative speed of the minute hand is degrees per min.
►Minute has to cover 90 degrees to make a right angle so it will take min. past 24.
Parvati Patil enters a forbidden chamber at the Hogwarts School of witchcraft and wizardry. She is cursed and petrified and placed on a stone S which moves 25 steps per year. There are two more stone blocks  A and B and they also move. But the movement of block S does not obstruct the movement of blocks A or B. A moves 5 steps towards B in a year and 4.5 steps in the direction away from B in the next year. B moves 9 steps in the direction away from A in a year and 11 steps towards A in the next year. However, when A moves towards B, B moves away from A and vice versa. The initial distance between A and B is 1000 steps. Parvati's curse will be lifted when blocks A and B bang each other. What is the sum of the distances travelled byParvati's block, block A and block B when the curse is lifted?
►Block A and B move in the same direction in a year. B moves 9 steps away from its initial position in the first year and 11 steps towards A in the next.
►Thus, it moves 2 steps towards A in 2 years. Similarly, A moves 0.5 steps towards B in two years.
►Thus, A and B move 2.5 steps towards each other every two years.
►Hence, they will cover the distance of 1000 steps in 800 years. In this time, Parvati’s block will travel 800 × 25 = 20000 steps.
►Now, block A covers 5 + 4.5 = 9.5 steps in 2 years and block B covers 9 + 11 = 20 steps in 2 years.
►∴ Blocks A and B cover 400 × (9.5 + 20) = 400 × 29.5 = 11800 steps in 800 years.
►∴ Sum of the distances travelled by Parvati’s block, block A and block B = 11800 + 20000 = 31800 steps. Hence option 2.
Which of the four cubes pictured below are correct view when the six squares are folded (in clockwise direction) into a cube?
► 3 lies opposite the black dot
► Slanting line lies opposite W.

► In option (2) 3 is on the adjacent face of the black dot whereas it should be opposite.
► In option (3) slanting line is on the adjacent face of W whereas it should be opposite.
► In option (4) O is on the top and hence the positions of the black dot and W are not correct.
Hence first option is the answer.
DIRECTIONS for the question: In the question below, a statement is followed by two assumptions numbered I and II. An assumption is something supposed or taken for granted.
Statement: Should the fees of all the private professional colleges be made equal to those of the government professional colleges?
Arguments:
I. No private colleges need additional funds to maintain quality of education.
II. Yes, otherwise a large number of meritorious students will not be able to study in these colleges given the exorbitantly high fees.
►As private colleges do not get any aid, they need more funds to maintain quality of education.
►Hence option (1) is strong.On the other hand the exorbitant fees will prevent meritorious students from studying in these colleges.So option (2) is also strong. Since both the arguments are strong, so, D.
Seventy percent of the employees in a multinational corporation have VCD players, 75 percent have microwave ovens, 80 percent have ACs and 85 percent have washing machines. At least what percentage of employees has all four gadgets?
► VCD = 70% Microwave = 75% ACS = 80% Washing M/c = 85%
► Least percentage of employees having both VCD and Microwave = 70 + 75  100 = 45%
► Least percentage having all 3  VCD, Microwave, ACs = 45 + 80  100 = 25%
► Least percentage having all 4 = 25% + 85%  100% = 10%
The minute hand of a clock overtakes the hour hand at intervals of 64 minutes of correct time. How many minutes in a day does the clock lose or gain?
In a correct clock, the minute hand gains 55 min spaces over the hour hand in 60 min.
To be together again, the minute had must gain 60 min over the hour hand.
We know that 60 min are gained in (60/55) x 60 = 65(5/11)min. But they are together after 64 min.
Gain in 64 min = 65(5/11)  64 = 1(5/11) = 16/11 min.
∴ Gain in 24 hrs
Mohan is thirteen from the left end in a row of children. Prabir is twelfth from the right end and eighteenth from the left end. How many children are towards the right of Mohan in that row?
►Prabir is 12th from right and 18th from left, therefore in total there are (12 + 18  1) = 29 children.
►Now, if Mohan is 13th from left, there should be (29  13) = 16 children on his right.
►Therefore the correct answer is option (D).

Assume that the moon takes exactly 30 days to complete the cycle and also assume that it rises in the East exactly at 6.48 p.m. on the first day. On the fourth day, at what time will it rise?
►After 30 days, the moon will rise again at 6:48 p.m.
►This means that the timing for moonrise goes through 24 hours in a 30 day period.
►This means that each day the timing of moonrise will move ahead by 24/30 hours = 48 minutes.
►So, on 4th day, the timing will move ahead by 144 minutes, i.e., 2 hours 24 minutes.
►So on the fourth day, the moon will rise at 9:12 p.m.
