There are 4 qualifying examinations to enter into IIMs; CAT, BAT, SAT, and PAT. An IIT ian cannot go to IIMs through BAT or SAT. A CA, on the other hand, can go to the IIMs through the CAT, BAT and PAT but not through SAT. Further, there are 3 ways to become a CA (viz. Foundation, Inter and Final). Find the ratio of number of ways in which an IITian can make it to IIM to the number of ways a CA can make it to the IIMs?
  • a)
    3:2
  • b)
    2:3
  • c)
    2:9
  • d)

IITian can make it through BAT or SAT so 2 ways
CA can make it through CAT BAT OR PAT so 3 ways
further to become CA there are 3 ways so 3×3=9 ways
Ratio = 9:2

D is the correct option. Solution-
IITian can make it through BAT or SAT so 2 ways; CA can make it through CAT BAT OR PAT so 3 ways; further to become CA there are 3 ways so 3×3=9 ways. So, the Ratio = 9:2

IITian can make it through BAT or SAT so 2 ways CA can make it through CAT BAT OR PAT so 3 ways further to become CA there are 3 ways so 3×3=9 waysRatio = 9:2
