    Though all competitive exams do not allow using a calculator, but where they are permitted, there are restrictions on the models allowed.

    Though all competitive exams do not allow using calculators,
    Not all competitive exams allow the use of a calculator,
    Every competitive exam does not allow using of calculators,
    No correction required

    1. GujjU PoOH_N!T

      Note that there is a ‘but’ in the sentence immediately following the clause given. So the option that starts with “though” isn’t correct.

      What do competitive exams allow/not allow? In answer to this question, “the use of a calculator” is the correct wording of the response. Both “using calculators” and “using of calculators” are incorrect.

      The quantifier ‘every’ stresses all the members of the complete group. Here, we want to say that only some (not all) exams allow the use of a calculator. So option c is also incorrect.

      The correct option is (b). Not all competitive exams allow the use of a calculator, but where they are permitted, there are restrictions on the models allowed.

      Correct Answer: B

      As the sentence starts off with “Denouncing it…”, the clause that follows has to first refer to who denounced it- in this case, it is the critics.

      Option B is not correct, as it implies critics impose draconian limits on the activities of trade unions.

      The pronoun “which” after the “Lobbying Act” in option C clarifies that it is the Act that limits the activities of the trade unions.

      Correct Answer: C

    While people in the Middle East have good reason to feel gravely threatened by terrorism,but elsewhere in the world, its more that people are paying greater attention to the terrorist threat then they used to.

      There are 3 errors to spot in the given sentence:

      Firstly, as the sentence starts with “while…”, any option that follows this clause with “but” is incorrect.

      Secondly, “its” is a personal pronoun- not the correct word to use here. “It’s” meaning “it is” is the right word to use in the given context.

      Thirdly, the sentence says people are paying greater attention to the terrorist threat “then” they used to. This is incorrect. The correct word to use instead is “than”.

      The only option that corrects these errors is B.

      Correct Answer: B

    In the past, hosting a party meant ringing friends, organising food and drink and ensuring that the venue was in order. (————) There is the event manager who picks a theme and supplies the props, be it decorations, deejays, dancers or appearances by movie stars. The final product is intended to be a cocktail of novelty, glamour and designer brands that get noticed and mentioned.

    1. Ambika

      Throwing grand parties is fast becoming a status symbol. Sentence E continues the idea about parties. Hence E is most appropriate choice.

    The Indian government’s attempt to tap the clout and wealth of the hugely successful diaspora to boost the domestic economy and serve the national interest in the international arena is laudable. But it has to give a value proposition to the NRI community, lest it is more than happy in the cosy comforts that the west has to offer. The diaspora’s attitude towards India is still patronising but it may not simply run to help India in its hour of need. It would want counter guarantees. (————-)
    (a) Risk evaluation precedes patriotism.
    (b) China, due to its trade-friendly policies, has been able to get its diaspora to invest heavily while we are still lagging behind.
    (c) What should concern us is the regular exodus of brilliant students from the IITs, IIMs and medical colleges who see greener pastures overseas.
    (d) It is shameful that for an Indian to be recognised, he first has to leave the country.
    (e) Can we look up to the diaspora to help lndians in their hour of need?

    Scientists say that intensely imagining doing something wires the areas of the brain that will be involved once you get down to the same task.

The same applies to one’s moods as well. (———) So smile.

    . (—————–) An engineering degree, even from an IIT, is not sufficient to get a job, without an MBA from another reputed institute.

    A dishonest dealer purchases goods at 20% discount of the cost price of Rs. X and also cheats his wholesaler by getting 20% extra through false weighing, per kg. Then he marks up his goods by 80% of x, but he gives a discount of 25% besides he cheats his customer by weighing 10% less than the required. What is his overall profit percentage?

    1. $~$PrAdeEP$K$~$~$

      let the purchase price =100
      =>100 ——–80
      =>p(1) =20 =>p(1)%=25%
      now by false wt crieteria p(2) =20%
      => by successive =p(a) =50%
      similarly p(3) =35%
      false wt p(4) =100/9% => p(b) =50%
      now resultant profit p(r) = 50% +50% +25% =125%

    Pipe A can fill an empty Tank with water in 24 hours. Pipe B can fill the empty Tank with a mixture that contains 24% pure alcohol, in 16 hours. If both the pipes are opened alternately for one hour, starting from pipe A, what will be the alcohol concentration in the tank when it gets filled?

    1. $~$PrAdeEP$K$~$~$

      a =24
      b =16 lcm =48
      now a =2 b=3
      now 5 work =2 hour
      =>45 work =18 hour
      now remaining work =3
      now a do 2 work from 3 in 1 hour
      and remaining 1 work is done by b
      =>3b=1 =>b =1/3
      total days =18+1+1/3 =19(1/3) hour
      now in 1hour b pumps 3 liter mix
      now conc.of alc.in mix =0.24 *3 =0.72l
      now 0.72l alc =1 hr
      =>for 28/3 hrs alc =0.72* 28/3 =6.72l
      total conc =48l
