110N/100 + 500 = 120N/100
Oops, just realized, classic example of what nerves are capable of!
So, the correct equation should be 110N/100 + 500 = 112N/100
Solving for N, we have N = 25000
So, 12% increase would be 28000. Ans - D

Thanks

Hello,
So, while this question looks simple, while attempting it, I couldn't somehow make out where I was going wrong. I started out with something like below,

Assuming the initial salary as N, we have,
110N/100 + 500 = 120N/100
Somehow, this doesn't seem to make sense. Please help!

Thanks

Veritas Prep - Using the Question Bank

Hello

I recently created an account on the Veritas Prep Question Bank. While the interface is very intuitive, I couldn't make out if there was a way to repeat/reset already attempted questions. I know the site offers a facility to review questions though. Any ideas..?

Thanks,
Bullzi

SC hangover on RC!

Hello.. This is slightly weird, still, I was curious whether I was the only one going through this. After going through quite a few SC questions, the moment I start working on an RC question, I sub-conclusively start looking for grammatical/other errors in the the passages! I see that it takes me a...

Thanks for your response Rich I actually started realizing that the issue may be with my note-taking skills and not actually with the note-taking strategy itself. I guess I may have to get used to taking short meaningful notes without bothering too much about the clock ticking away When done correc...
