CAT Quant Practice Problems

Question: For three distinct real numbers x, y and z, let

f(x, y, z) = Min(Max(x, y), Max(y, z),Max(z, x))

g(x, y, z) = Max(Min(x, y), Min(y, z), Min(z, x))

h(x, y, z) = Max(Max(x, y), Max(y, z), Max(z, x))

j(x, y, z) = Min(Min(x, y), Min(y, z), Min(z, x))

m(x, y, z) = Max(x, y, z)

n(x, y, z) = Min(x, y, z)

Which of the following is necessarily greater than 1?


  1. [h(x, y, z) – f(x, y, z)] / j(x, y, z)
  2. j(x, y, z) / h(x, y, z)
  3. f(x, y, z) / g(x, y, z)
  4. [f(x, y, z) + h(x, y, z) – g(x, y, z)] / j(x, y, z)

Correct Option:4
