Direction for questions 1 to 5: Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow with reference to it. Retailing — no marks for guessing this is the most active and attractive sector of the last decade. While the retailing industry itself has been present through history in our country, it is only the recent past that has witnessed so much dynamism. It’s the latest bandwagon that has witnessed hordes of players leaping onto it. While international retail store chains have caught the fancy of many travellers abroad, the action was missing from the Indian business scene, at least till recently. The emergence of retailing in India has more to do with the increasing purchasing power of buyers, especially post-liberalisation, increase in product variety, and the increasing economies of scale, with the aid of modern supply and distribution management solutions.

The current retailing revolution has been provided an impetus from multiple sources. These ‘revolutionaries’ include many conventional stores upgrading themselves to modern retailing, companies in competitive environments entering the market directly to ensure exclusive visibility for their products and professional chain stores coming up to meet the need of the manufacturers who do not fall into either of the above categories.

Compare using the sets. y) = y + 1 = 5. 1) = A(0. b = α1 / y and c = α1 / z 102. 1) = A(0. so y = 4. (i) There are three possible ways of arranging the given condition. Use the set representation answer is [30 + 32 + 22 + 16 + 12 + 18 + 8 + 6] = 144 Use the set representation answer is = (22 + 18) + (18 + 10) = 68 Use the set representation Total number of employees = [145 +174 + 121 + 72] + [100 + 90 + 50 + 36] = 512 + 276 = 788 Number of workers of grade W1 in fabrication department = 35 + 32 = 77 Approximate percentage = 10%. 93. y) = A(0. 2) = A(0. A(1. 2) = 3 A(1. A(1.

From the above analogues example. The projects are (2. XAT . 1) = f(1. 0) = 2 127. No three statements are consistent. → Some A are B and some A are not B. 0) = 3 f(44. 1. 18 8 10 128 123. two assertions can be consistent to one another.

Between two consecutive letters the number of letters are in AP. Both urns should be filled. 3). None of the given answer choices are applicable. (1. 2. 2) = f(2. = 27 ways. 4. Those who are creatures of fantasy can create fantasy. we can see that 1. f(15. 2. → Some A are B. Two balls out of five balls can be selected in 5 C2 ways = 10 ways. the remaining four balls can 4 be distributed in four urns. Two consecutive letters have a difference of three letters between them. Two out of three urns can be selected in C2 ways. 8 + 5 = 13 and letters attached are in decreasing order. 2 + 1 = 3. 3). 112. (Some A are B. It can go to any of the four urns. 3) = f(3. 15) = f(15. (1. Similarly. Two selections. Remaining three different 3balls can be distributed in three different boxes in 3 . All balls can go to any of the four urns. 115. 132. So total number of ways are 2 × 2 × 2 = 8. there are four ways. we have the following.

Subtracting one way (the case of all getting rejected). 3 C2 ways and can be ∴ Total ways of distribution = 3 C2 × 3 C2 × 2 = 18 ways 126. All poets are creatures of fantasy. The only possible way of distributing all five balls into four urns is that one urn has two balls and other three have one-one ball each. (1). T. i. This means for each ball. 6) = f(6.

(3). Two balls out of 5 can be selected in 5 C2 ways. So there is only one way of dividing the balls into two groups (2 balls and 1 ball). (1. 1 can be distributed into 4 urns in 4! ways. 119. Total ways = 4! × 5C2 = 240 ways. The digit is changing as in Fibonacci series 1. 9) = f(9. c fits in. 3) = f(3. 0) = 1 129. 2) = f(2. 114. 5 + 3 = 8. 118. 14) = f(14. 117. we have 8 – 1 = 7 ways. 5. honest is linked neither with unsuccessful nor successful. Every ball can be put in four ways. Ram is a poet. U. So total number of ways = 27 × 10 = 270. 9) = (9. Assertion Example 1. 133. 130.) 3. 5 ∴ Total ways = 4 × 4 × 4 × 4 × 4 = 4 = 1024 ways.
