Strategy to attempt paper:

Quantitative section was difficult when compared to last year’s paper. So, students preparing for CAT

might have noticed that FMS these days is trying to move towards CAT. The approach in this section

will be very similar to what we do in CAT. Of course, selection was paramount and going for your strong

areas would have helped a lot. But if you had followed the strategy of going for one question after the

other, then, that would have definitely affected your performance. If you had revised your CAT material

well, then shortcuts for the quant questions should not be a problem. Moreover, an options based

approach was apt for this kind of section. There, a higher focus in arithmetic esp. number system, which

alone constituted majority of this section.

Reasoning section:

This section was a good blend of different kinds of reasoning which includes analytical reasoning, logical

reasoning, verbal, coding decoding, blood relation, inference based questions in addition to DI. So a

good performance in this section will be crucial.

English section:

EU section was an easy one and time saving as well. Except for the some of the analogies, all the

questions could be attempted in a very short time span.

RC was as usual with comparatively long passages but most of them were inference based. So, at least

two passages should have been attempted. Overall this section was of average difficulty considering the

length of the passages and the time it took to do them.

If you expect a net score of 340+ in FMS, you hold a good chance of getting a call.

Sample Paper

87 87 87 87

1. ‘?’ in the expression will be best replaced by : ?

83 83 89 89

(a) Greater than (b) Less Than (c) equal to (d) Less than equal to

Ans. (a)

2. Average runs scored by Ganguly, Dravid, Agarkar, Sehwag, and Sachin is 39 .What will be total runs

scored by Ganguly and Dravid if average runs scored by Agarkar, Sehwag, and Sachin is 36?

(a) 85 (b) 86 (c) 90 (d) 87

Ans. (d)

5 x 39 – 36 x 3 = 195 – 108 = 87

3. What is the sum of the prime numbers lying between 10 and 40?

(a) 178 (b) 180 (c) 181 (d) none of these

Ans. (b)

Prime numbers between 10 to 40 are 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37 and their sum is 180.

4. Average of 7 consecutive odd numbers is x. What is the total of the 11 consecutive odd numbers in

the form of x where first odd number is same in both series?

(a) 11x (b) 11x + 11 (c) 11x + 44 (d) 11x +34

Ans. 7 odd numbers essentially are (x – 6), (x – 4), (x – 2), x, (x + 2), (x + 4), (x + 6) then 11 odd numbers

will be = (x – 6), (x – 4), (x – 2), x, (x + 2), (x + 4), (x + 6), (x + 8), (x + 10), (x + 12), (x + 14)

Which is equal to 11x + 44

a ×b

and x, y, z are odd then × y × z is:

c

(a) Always Even (b) Always odd (c) Even or Odd (d) none of these

Ans. (c)

C

If A – 4 = B + 4 = = 4D then what is the share recieved by C?

4

(a) 10 (b)9 (c) 50 (d) 5

Ans. (d)

C

Let A – 4 = B + 4 = = 4D = k

4

Representing it in the form of k we have A + B + C + D = k + 4 + k – 4 + 4k + k/4

= 25k/4 = 125

Therefore share recieved by D = 5

7. Which is the next term in the series:

AJKTU, BILSV, CHMRW, DGNQX

(a) EFOPY (b) EJOPX (c) EJOQY (d) EJOPY

Ans. (a)

8.

Ans.

If circles are drawn in the figure as shown with vertices of a square as the center of the triangle then

how many days it will take for the unshaded area If work done in covering the shaded area is 11 days?

Ans– Asuming side of the square as 2 cm we have radius of the circle = 1cm. Area of the shaded

region in side the triangle = pie x 1

Unshaded area = 4 – pie

Number of days needed in doing the work done for unshaded area = 1/ pie x ( 4 – pie)2

= 1.099

9. At 10% compound interest annual Rs 10,000 put in every year for 3 years. What will be the amount

at the end of 4 years?

Amount after one year = 10000 x 1.1+ 10000 = 11000 + 10000 = 21000

Total amount after two years = 21000 x 1.1 + 10000 = 33100

Total amount after three years = 33100 x 1.1 + 10000 = 46410

= 14:09:40
