Hey Frank, Do you feel anxious while you work on SC questions? If yes, you are bound to feel helpless when ever an SC questions appears on screen. So, the root cause is the anxiety and not necessarily your lack of SC skills. You can try this technique - Take just one question from OG. You will start...

Maroli, Truely inspirational De-Brief!! I'm also not very good with Quant section, and i've realized that underperforming on quant makes me want to not put much effort on the verbal bit. As a result, my overall score goes down. I would request you to explain the tricks and "knowing the enemy" part f...

n = 8 x p p has only two factors: 1 and p itself. Note that since p>2, it is odd and therefore does not share any common factor with 8, which is basically 2x2x2, except 1. 8 has 4 factors - 1, 2, 4 & 8. Factors of 8 - 4 Factors of p - 2 Total - 6 + 1(8xp is also a factor)=7 1 is repeated twice, ther...

Guys, Rahul is correct. The position of the standing man isnt important here. It's merely given so that we can figure out the length of the train. Sketch a platform quickly and try to visualize how a train covers the platform. Its Engine first reaches the start of the platform and then reaches the o...

@Zerks: Median is not the middle number, by number, in the set. Median is, after arranging the numbers of the set in descending order, the middle number, by value. I hope you understand this. When you say 45 is the highest number, the lowest number must be 15 (range is 30). Agreed? All this means is...

This is how i solved it. m can be either odd or even but not both at the same time. Lets take m=odd. So in 9 x 6, m is 9. Therefore 9x3=27 and 27x6=162. Since 162 is not a given answer, m cannot be odd and therefore must be even (m is a positive integer). If m is even, then in 9x6, m is 6. so 1/2 x ...

There was a question about how to attempt these in 1.5 min or so. I think the best way to proceed on the fully underlined SC questions is to read the stem first and understand the intended meaning. Then check whether A is correct, using grammer and other stuff you know about SC. It's better to treat...

Is |X|= A-B? Stmt1: X=A-B; Say A=3 and B=2. A-B will be 1, i,e X=1 and thus |X| will remain 1. Thus in this case |X| is equal to X or A-B. Now take A=2 and B=3. A-B will be -1, i.e X=-1 and thus |X| will become 1. |X| is not equal to X or A-B in this case. Two results, NOT SUFFICIENT. Stmt2: Do the ...
