  1. MAHESH AGGARWAL

    do you have exclusive PACKAGE OF video solutions of last 10-15 years CAT EXAMS? I AM INTERESTED IN JUST THAT. I AM HELPING A GIRL APPEARING FOR CAT 2019 EXAM

    1. We have already included all the good questions from CAT and other MBA entrance exams in our course.
      All these questions are with Video explanations

  2. Sir, for question no. 23:- we can do as x+y=2-z
    => cubing both sides:- x3+y3+z3=8-(2-z)(6z+3xy)
    =>as given that x3+y3+z3=8, then (2-z)(6z+3xy)=0 => z=2(considering an integer value for easy output) ,now putting z value in every eqn given :- x+y=0
    x2+y2=2
    x3+y3=0
    from the above three eqns we find that if one of x or y is +ve then another ll be -ve but both ll be of same magnitude i.e. (+-)1….thus x4+y4+z4=18

  3. Set 1 Question 5.

    I want to know the below logic would be wrong.

    Distance is constant. If the Speed increases by 10km/hr, the time decreases by 4 hours.
    So to decrease time by 2 hours, Speed can be increased by 5km/hr.

    20 + 5= 25 kmph.

    I understand something might be wrong with this logic but could someone help pinpoint that?

    1. the assumption of “to decrease time by 2 hours, speed can be increase by 5km/hr” is wrong. it would be right if you know the initial time and consider from the start but since the journey is already going on, u can’t do that.
