Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 1

Read the following passage and answer the question.

The ongoing conflict between two mega cola companies is known to all. All carbonated beverages generally lie under the flagship of two champs in this field, Coca Cola Company and PepsiCo. The brand conflict has furthered to a great extent. The lust to dominate does not extend to supermarkets alone. The turmoil extends from control over restaurants' supply of colas to supplies to big countries. The rivalry is for global control.

This long battle to sweep the global market has lasted for decades. It seems as legendary as the conflict of good and evil. But the choice depends on consumers’ taste buds. The consumer taste criteria adjudge what is ‘good’ and what is the ‘evil’. Both Coca Cola and PepsiCo leave no stone unturned. They go to the extent of deterring the rival company on URLs and through commercials. Despite all the convulsive episodes, and both companies claiming the ball to be in their court, the consumer i.e. the jury is still undecided who rules the market.

The steaming competition is forcing the companies to launch new products. The companies are daily remodelling their marketing strategy. Through commercials, promotional campaigns and consumer benefit schemes, they want to take the market with a stride but the judgment of the winner lies with the rising sales, profits and consumer loyalty. They are trying to increase the market share in other beverage categories.

The war to lead the market goes on. Though Pepsi has often shown the strategy of developing new products, Coke followed the steps and instructed the newly appointed marketing executives to pursue the same technique. Pepsi had innovative advertising ideas which Coca Cola lacked to an extent but both have tried to find and capture any new market (foreign) that they could.

The Coca Cola advertising heads have now tried to capture youth’s fancy by using celebrities. While Coca Cola is trying to bank on nostalgia with its new Vanilla Coke. Pepsi is taking over the young chasers with Blue Pepsi. Whereas Coke is a leader in sodas, Pepsi banks on its snack business. If Pepsi allures the new genre, Coke also has a way to go with new consumers in its kitty.

Q. Why are the two cola superbrands in conflict?

Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 6

Read the following passage and answer the question that follows.

There is a subtle difference between enduring continuance, which in other words is persistence, and firmly adhering to one’s chosen course of action which is called obstinacy. Something of note here is the difference between the attitudes of scientists around the world. While some of them persistently work on some projects; others give them up at some stage or the other. A notable example here is Fleming. Fleming started doing work on penicillin in the late 20s. He tried his best to purify it but failed in his efforts. He wrote in 1932 that he discontinued working on penicillin and gave his reasons as well. He said that it would never be useful and found it to be very unstable. Later on, in 1941 Florey and Chaine started their efforts to purify penicillin. And because of their persistent efforts, they discovered a process to purify it. Both of them along with Fleming were awarded the Nobel Prize.

The stumbling blocks for me were in the beginning when we put forward the idea that tumours need to have their own blood supply. The only response that we got was of hostility and jeering disbelief. When we persistently kept on talking about it, other’s response was that this will be a meaningless exercise. ”There will be no molecules”. When we finally proved in 1983 (starting in the late 60s) that these were actually molecules, they gave another observation,” you’ll never prove that that’s what tumours use.” The most cynical group insisted that this discovery might be true on mice but it did not hold true on people. But my response has always been that I would not give up my efforts and I cannot stop if somebody else wanted me to stop. I even made the offer if they would give their observations under signature. If they agreed to do so, it would save huge money of the public and the government and we would stop doing the experiments. But nobody agreed to do so.

So, my final observation is that whatever field you have chosen in life, the success will come to you only by way of dogged determination. A pessimistic would say, "Ok, if they became successful, they were lucky enough.” But I differ with it. Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. If you want to be successful, you can become so only with persistence and determination. The only thing is that do not give up making efforts. Keep on pursuing whatever you are after against all odds.

Q. "I even made the offer if they would give their observations under signature." These words reflect

Detailed Solution for Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 6

(1) The remark does not represent the author's frustration. The author rather challenges the naysayers to stand by what they say.

(2) The author is being sarcastic here about the cynics. The naysayers try to discourage him by saying that it can't be done. The author sarcastically observes that if their conviction is so strong, why don't they put it in writing?

(3) The quotes do not reflect the author's lighter vein, but belief in his own convictions.

(4) Although the author is persistent in his pursuits due to his own conviction, the quotes do not reflect the author's persistence.

Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 16

The year next to 1988 with the same calendar as that of 1988 is

Detailed Solution for Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 16

It is to be noted that 1988 is a leap year.
So, the year which has the same calendar as 1988 has to be a leap year.
Now, for every leap year there are 3 ordinary years that are not leap years. 
Thus, we have to evaluate how many sets of leap years and ordinary years starting with 1988 give an exact multiple of 7 so that the next year is then a leap year an its calendar matches exactly with that of 1988.

Let there be a such sets containing an exact set of 7 days numbering b in number.

Thus, 366a + 365 x 3a = 7b 
Or, 1461a = 7b

The only possible solution is a = 7 and b = 1461

Thus, there are 7 sets of 4 years starting with 1988.
Thus, these 28 years are 1988 to 2015.
Thus, the next year is 2016.

Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 17

A total of 430 mangoes are to be divided among 45 people, consisting of men, women and children. The total mangoes given to men, women and children are in the ratio 12 : 15 : 16. But, the mangoes received by each man, woman and child are in the ratio 6 : 5 : 4. Find the respective numbers of mangoes that each man, each woman and each child got.

Detailed Solution for Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 17

Ratio of mangoes received by each man, each woman and each child = 6 : 5 : 4
Ratio of the total mangoes = 12 : 15 : 16

Ratio of men, women and children  = 12/6 :  15/6  : 16/4  = 2 : 3 : 4
Sum of these ratios = (2 + 3 + 4) = 9

Number of men =  (45 x 2) /9 = 10
Number of women =  45 x 3 / 9  = 15
Number of children = 45 – (10 + 15) = 20

Now, dividing 430 mangoes in the ratio 12 : 15 : 16, total mangoes of men's share 
= 430 x 12 / 43   = 120
Total mangoes of women's share = 430 x 15/43 = 150

Total mangoes of children's share = [430 – (120 + 150)] = 160
Each man's share = 120/10 = 12
Each women's share = 150/15 = 10 
Each child's share = 160/20 = 8

Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 18

There are two numbers. 25% of one of the numbers is greater than the other number by 5. What is the ratio of the greater number to the smaller number, if the sum of the numbers is 70?

Detailed Solution for Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 18

Let the two numbers be x and y. 
0.25x - y = 5, x + y = 70 
x – 4y = 20 
X + y = 70
On solving :
y = 10 and x = 60
Required ratio = 60 : 10 = 6 : 1

Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 19

In a community, 36% of the total families use desert coolers and 71% of the total use ACs. What is the minimum percentage of families that use both desert coolers and ACs?

Detailed Solution for Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 19

The number of families in a community that use both desert coolers and ACs will be the minimum if each family uses at least one item out of desert coolers and ACs, i.e. 100% families use at least one item out of desert coolers and ACs.

So, the minimum percentage of families using both desert coolers and

Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 20

A certain amount of money compounded annually becomes Rs. 5120 after 10 years and Rs. 10,000 after 16 years. What is the initial amount?

Detailed Solution for Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 20

Let the initial amount of money be Rs P.
According to the given condition:

P ( 1 + R / 100)10= 5120 … (1)
P ( 1 + R / 100)16= 10,000 … (2)

Dividing (2) by (1), we get
(1 + R / 100)6 = 1000/512

Taking cube root of both sides, we get 
( 1 + R / 100)2 = 5/4

Putting this value in equation (1), we get
P ( 5/4)5= 5120
P = 5120 ( 4/5 )5 = 1677.72 = 1678 (approx.)

Thus, the initial amount = Rs. 1678

Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 52

Read the following passage and answer the given question.

UN war crimes investigators have denounced a “staggering loss of civilian life” caused by the US-backed campaign to reclaim Raqqa, the de facto capital of Islamic State.

The independent commission of inquiry tasked with investigating violations of international law, war crimes and crimes against humanity in Syria said the intensification of airstrikes by the US-led coalition had ______ the deaths of at least 300 civilians in the city.

The Raqqa operation began last week with a ground assault by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an umbrella group comprising Kurdish and Arab militiamen armed by the US and supported by coalition airstrikes.

Q. Which of the following arguments, if true, can be made against the airstrikes?

A. As the operation is gaining pace very rapidly, civilians are caught up in the city under the oppressive rule of ISIS, while facing extreme danger associated with movement due to excessive airstrikes.
B. While the success of the campaign is dependent on freeing civilians in Raqqa from the yoke of ISIS, many face the prospect of death by coalition airpower.
C. People living in ISIS areas are subject to inconsistent screening procedures to determine if they are sympathisers with the militant group.

Detailed Solution for Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 52

If the mission is about freeing the people, civilian casualties will lead to the failure of the mission. So, it is the correct argument here.

Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 57

Out of 100 students in Holy Christ School of Science, 40 study Physics and 70 study Mathematics. If there are at least 20 students who study neither Mathematics nor Physics, what is the possible range of students who study both Mathematics and Physics?

Detailed Solution for Practice Mock Test for SNAP - 6 - Question 57

Total students = Physics + Mathematics – Both 'Mathematics' and 'Physics' + Neither 'Mathematics' nor 'Physics'
Here's what we know: 
Total = 100 
Physics = 40
Mathematics = 70
Both (B) = Unknown 
Neither (N) = Unknown 
or we have
100 = 40 + 70 - Both + Neither 
100 = 110 - B + N (Let's isolate 'B' since we are solving for possible values of 'B') 
B = N + 10 

Now, the minimum value of N is 20 and the maximum value can be 30. 

Thus, the minimum value of B is 30 and the maximum value of B is 40.
