how to solve para jumbles

How to prepare for Para Jumbles:

Practice, practice, practice!: A student can improve a lot in para jumbles by practicing. You get used to the process of looking for connectives and joining different threads together into a coherent chain of thought

Read: The skills used in Para Jumbles are the same as the skills used in Reading Comprehension. Therefore you should get into the habit of reading everyday. Read opinion articles in any of the major dailies. Analyze the information given in them and summarize each paragraph

Important points to note:

Main point of the paragraph: Read all sentences. Try to understand what is the main point of the paragraph. Find the sentence where the subject of the paragraph - person, event or idea is first introduced. This sentence is likely to be the first sentence or would at least be in the first few sentences.

Try to find verbal connectives: Verbal connectives like but, on the other hand, nevertheless etc provide important clues regarding the paragraph. If you find a negative connective like but, nevertheless etc find the idea being rejected in that statement. The line that states this idea would immediately precede this line. However, a note of caution : Some paragraphs can begin with connectives like However, but etc.

Try to find logical connectives: When a statement lists two reasons, or two concerns or any enumeration of this sort find the the two sentences with the reasons. These sentences should follow the line.

Analogies: If an analogy is given it should precede the real life example. For example if the author states that when a stone is dropped in water, its ripples are felt for some time after the event. If there is a sentence which gives the example of how we are still feeling the ripples of a great event, this line with the real life example must be after the line with the analogy

Definition of subject: Find lines where pronouns like he, it are used. They should immediately follow lines where this noun is defined.

Hi Satish, we are sorry to hear that you want to delete your profile. Please let us know what we can do to make your preparation experience better. Thanks!

I have given a free mock and my first mock today in cracku. First of all thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving an opportunity to take the mock. But after giving the mock, its ideal to spend nearly 4 to 6 hours to analyze the paper. But no such thing is offered by cracku, they just gave the score. Why so.?

In an examination, a candidate has to pass in each of the 6 subjects. In how many ways can he fail??

Pv Aaditya

3 years, 4 months ago

Number of ways in which the candidate can fail in all 6 subjects = 1

Number of ways in which the candidate can fail in 5 subjects = $$^6C_5$$

Number of ways in which the candidate can fail in 4 subjects = $$^6C_4$$

Number of ways in which the candidate can fail in 3 subjects = $$^6C_3$$

Number of ways in which the candidate can fail in 2 subjects = $$^6C_2$$

Number of ways in which the candidate can fail in 1 subject = $$^6C_1$$

So, number of ways in which the candidate can fail = $$^6C_1 + ^6C_2 + ^6C_3 + ^6C_4 + ^6C_5 + ^6C_6 = 2^6 - ^6C_0 = 64 - 1 = 63$$ ways

Every subject has two possibilities either pass or fail.

total number of possibilities for pass and fail= 2*2*2*2*2*2=64

Total number of possibilities for candidate has to pass = 1 possibility i.e. he has to pass all the subjects

No.of possibilities for student fail = 64 - 1=63.

how do prepare all quantitative apptitude questions?

Pv Aaditya

3 years, 4 months ago

Hi Vanaraj,

There are three stages of preparation as far as Quant is concerned. In stage 1, go through all the concepts and related basic level exercises. This will help you gain a basic understanding of all the concepts. In stage 2, take as many sectional tests as possible. This will help you get an understanding of the different variety of questions asked and also the difficulty level of questions. In stage 3, take as many mock tests as possible. After each mock, analyze it to see where you have gone wrong.

If you plan your preparation according to these three stages, your Quant will improve significantly.

how do i solve simple interest and compound interest

Pv Aaditya

3 years, 4 months ago

Hi,

Simple Interest is usually calculated using a simple

$$SI = \frac{P*R*T}{100} $$

SI = Simple Interest

P = Principal or amount borrowed or lent initially

R = Rate of Interest (per annum)

T = Time in years.

Principal earned at the rate of interest compounded annually after a certain period of time can be calculated by using a

A = P $$[1+\frac{R}{100}]^n$$

A = Amount due

P = Initial principal

R = Rate of Interest (in % p.a.)

n = Time (years)
