### Group Question Answer the following question based on the information given below. In an MBA entrance exam, questions are classified into two sections - Quants and Verbal. The number of questions in Quants is less than 100 while that in Verbal is not less than 75. Within each section, the questions are classified into Easy or Difficult based on the number of concepts involved. An easy question requires not more than 1 concept, while a difficult question requires 2 or more concepts to solve.Further, a question could be lengthy (atleast 3 minutes to solve) or non- lengthy (less thanl minute to solve). Based on the following data, answer the subsequent questions. 1. The number of difficult, non-lengthy questions in Verbal is 10 less than half the number of easy, non-lengthy questions in Quants. 2. The ratio of number of easy, lengthy questions in Quants to number of difficult, lengthy questions in Verbal is 5:3. 3. The number of non-lengthy, difficult questions in Quants is 5 less than thrice the number of lengthy, easy questions in Verbal. 4. The number of lengthy questions in Verbal is 35 less than the number of easy questions in Quant. 5. The number of non-lengthy questions in Quants is 30 more than the number of difficult questions in Verbal. 6. The number of easy, non lengthy question in Verbal is thrice the number of lengthy, difficult questions in Quant. 7. Each sub-section had atleast 5 questions.   Q.What is the number of easy, but lengthy questions in the Verbal section?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 1 - Question 1

Represent Quant-lengthy-easy as Q-L-E, Verbal-non-lengthy-difficult as V-NL-D and so on.
Let Q-L-E = 5x, Q-NL-E = 2z, Q-L-D = K and V-L-E = y

V-L-D = 3x (from 2), V-NL-D = z - 10 (from 1), V-NL-E = 3K (from 6) and Q-NL-D = 3y - 5 (from 3)

Now, the questions in Quants and Verbal can be classified as easy/difficult or lengthy/non-lengthy as shown below.

The number of non-lengthy questions in Quants is 30 more than the number of difficult questions in Verbal.

2z + 3y - 5 = (3x + z — 10) + 30

3y + z - 3x = 15 ...(i)

The number of lengthy questions in Verbal section is 35 less than the number of easy questions in Quant.

y + 3x = (5x + 2z) - 35

2x - y + 2z = 35 ...(ii)

From (i) and (ii)

7y - 8x = 15

(x,y) = (6, 9) or (13, 17) or (20, 25) etc.

Corresponding value for z = 16 or 13 or 10 etc..
Since each sub-section has at least 5 qestions, the number of non-lengthy, difficult question in the verbal section
(z - 10) > 5.
> 15
z = 16
Thus, (x,y ,z) = (6, 9, 16) Also,the number of question in Quants is less than 100 while that in verbal is not less than 75.
Number o f questions in Quants = 5x + 2z + (3y - 5 ) + K = M + K < 100

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 1 - Question 9

If Rohan was born on 29th March 1990 on Thursday, on what day on the week will his 25th birthday fall?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 1 - Question 9

Rohan’s 25th birthday will be on 29th March 2015.
Now, the first 2000 completed years comprise 5 sets of 400 years each. Since there are 0 odd days in 400 years, there are 0 odd days in the first 2000 years as well.
The 14 completed years from 2000 to 2014 have 3 leap years (2004, 2008 and 2012) and 11 non-leap years.
Since a non-leap year has 1 odd day and a leap year has 2 odd days,

Total odd days in these 14 years = 11(1) + 3(2) = 17 = 7(2) + 3 i.e. 3 odd days.

Total number of days in 2015 (upto 29th March) = 31 + 28 + 29 = 88 days (as 2015 is not a leap year).
Number of odd days in this period = 7(12) + 4 i.e. 4 odd days.
So, total odd days till Rohan’s birthday = 3 + 4 = 7 i.e. 0 odd days.
Hence, Rohan’s 25th birthday will fall on a Sunday.
Hence, option 3.

NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 1 - Question 10

An Ant is at (2, 4) and wants to go to (9, 14) but in the process it has to carry food lying on the x-axis. Where should it touch the x-axis, so that it has to cover minimum distance in the entire journey?

Detailed Solution for NMAT Quantitative Skills MCQ Quiz - 1 - Question 10

If we try to solve this problem by using distance formula, it will require a lot of calculations.
Let us approach this problem in a different way.

‘C’ is the mirror image of B(9, 14)

Now the path taken by the ant is APB, where P(x, 0).
We know that PE = PC

We can safely say that path taken by the ant is APC.
And we need to find minimum length of APC.
APC will be minimum if A, P, C lie on a same straight line,

i.e. AC = AP + PC

Equation of line AC is:

Hence, option 4.
