JMET Paper 2010 [SET B

]

Section - 1: Verbal Communication

1. (C) The passage talks of everything except for ‘the changing nature of social values’.

2. (D) The passage through out talks of the importance of working from home in the
current scenario. It supports the cause of “home-work” by highlighting numerous
examples. Thus, the most appropriate title for the passage is conveyed by option
(D).

3. (B) The passage, in the third paragraph clearly states that ‘Without doubt, the single
most anti productive thing we do is to shift millions of people back and forth
across the landscape everyday’. This leads us to option (B). Option (A) cannot be
inferred from the passage. Option (C) is out of scope of the passage. Option (D)
is a wayward assumption which is not supported by the passage.

4. (C) Options (A), (B) and (D) are quoted as reasons for working from home. The first
paragraph mentions option (A). Option (B) is mentioned in the third paragraph.
Option (D) finds a mention in the fifth paragraph.

5. (B) Eruct means belch.

6. (C) Cometary means pertaining to comets.

7. (C) ‘Incorruptable’ is the incorrect spelling. It should be ‘incorruptible’.

8. (D) The passage talks of knowledge and goes on to highlight the nature and
meaning of knowledge. This leads us to option (D). Options (A), (B) and (C) do
not highlight the gist of the passage.

9. (B) Option (A) is mentioned in the first paragraph. Option (C) is given in the second
paragraph. Option (D) finds a mention in the last paragraph.

10. (A) In the first paragraph lines, “be it said parenthetically ………… philosophical
police” convey that “ parenthetically means ‘with special reference’. Option (B)
would be too literal a meaning to take and would not fit the context. Option (C) is
out of context and option (D) is irrelevant.

11. (B) The lines, “Observing a stone………. against its will” clearly imply option (B).
Option (A) is distorted. Option (C) and (D) are not implied by the last sentence.

12. (B) Politics means the art or science concerned with winning and holding control
over a government. In other words, politics is the study of power. Similarly,

13. (A) Option (B) states that happiness lies in ‘acknowledging future possibilities of
gloom’. Th e author has not suggested the same. Option (C) is distorted as it talks
about the discovery of self-belief and assessment leads to unhappiness. Option
(D) is nowhere hinted at in the passage. The author in the first line mentions,
“Neither misery nor folly seems to me any part of the inevitable lot of man.” He
further supports this idea in the passage. In fact, even in the second paragraph
the author says “ In the modern world, if communities are unhappy, it is because
they chose to be so”. This clearly leads us to option (A).

14. (B) The line clearly states that morbid miseries have led men into profound inner
discords and this has made all outward prosperity of no avail. This leads to
option (B). The other options do not conform to the meaning of the given
sentence.

15. (D) The line, “But I remain completely incapable of agreeing with those who accept
fatalistically the view that man is born to trouble” conveys that the author
disagrees with people who have ‘pre-fixed’ notions. The rest of the words do suit
the context.

16. (C) ‘Angular’ related to ‘Geometry’ similarly, ‘Hibernal’ relates to ‘Winter’.

17. (A) ‘Cell’ is a subject for study in ‘Biology’. Similarly, ‘Crop’ is a subject of study in
‘Agriculture’.

18. (A) ‘Nescience’ means lack of knowledge or awareness. Hence, ‘Awareness’ would
be its opposite.

19. (C) ‘Preconize’ means to announce or commend publicly. Hence, ‘Conceal’ would be
its opposite.

20. (A) Sentence (A) is the grammatically correct option. Option (B) has two errors as it
states that “who is visiting” and “whether the groom is rubbing”; it changes the
structure and semantics of the sentence. Option (C) conveys a meaning that is
different from the intended meaning of the sentence. The same error is visible in
option (D) along with the incorrect usage of “as because”.

21. (D) The lines “From the memorable night ……………. they had been less the
consequence than the cause” convey the idea reflected in option (D). Options
(A), (B) and (C) are distorted.

22. (C) Option (C) is conveyed by the lines “Cladists advocate classification by pure
genealogy……….. biological role”. Option (A) is incorrect as cladists want
genealogical similarities to be the only basis for classification. Options (B) and
(D) are out of context.

23. (A) Option (A) is contradicted by the line “Evolutionary relationships are also
genealogical, not primarily functional”. Hence, it becomes the correct answer
choice. The other options find mention in the passage.

24. (D) The last paragraph clearly mentions ‘genealogical propinquity need not follow
from functional similarity’ which is highlighted by the example of “five fingers”.
Option (A) is contradictory to the facts mentioned in the passage. Options (B)
and (C) cannot be inferred from the passage.

25. (B) Options (C) and (D) do not form a coherent sentence. Option (A) should read as
“When I am begin a new habit…………both summon and manipulate at will”.

26. (D) The correct sentence would read as “ there is a close relationship between
competitive recreation and the society that endorses it. This relationship, as
Russell saw it, is reciprocal”. All the other options would be grammatically
inconsistent.

27. (D) Pertinacity means perversely persistent or stubbornly tenacious. The tone of the
sentence also conveys this.

28. (A) Option (A) is grammatically correct. Options (B) and (C) are do not conform to
the rules parallelism. In option (D) ‘perhaps’ is used incorrectly.

29. (C) The usage of the word ‘however’ clearly implies that the two words used should
convey a synonymous connotation. Thus, only ‘humour’ and ‘amusing’ would fit.

30. (D) The correct sentence would read as “Satisfaction of self-esteem leads to a
feeling of self confidence. Indeed, as one …………… well-being”. Indeed is used
in the second part of the sentence to reaffirm the idea mentioned in the first part
of the sentence. Hence, option (D) is the best choice.

JMET Paper 2010 [SET B]

Section - 2 : Logical Reasoning

31. (D) The given statement tells us that nations do not compete with each other in any
regard and corporations do compete with each other.
When we look at option (D), it says that nations go on war to capture territory. It
implies that there is competition between the nations to capture territory.
Similarly, it also says that corporates contend against each other which again
contradicts with the information that corporations compete with each other.

32. (D) This is because from (iii) we can conclude that unhappy children are hungry and
from (ii) it can be concluded that children cry if they are hungry.
Therefore, an unhappy child usually cries. Hence, option (D) can be most
logically deduced.

33. (D) Option (D) follows directly from statement 1 which states that doing well in CAT
imply doing well in JMET. Doing well in CAT results in admission into IIMs and
doing well in JMET results in admission into IITs or IISc.

34. (C) There is a fire – A
Fire alarm goes off –B
Sprinklers start-C
Automatic alarm is set off in fire department –D

According to the given statements
A-B
C’-B’
C-D
Hence A-C-D, therefore option (C) is correct

35. (D) (A) is incorrect as the university campus may be familiar to a person other than
students of university. (B) Is incorrect as it says, “may be familiar …” which also
implies that a student may not be familiar with the campus and therefore the
conclusion in question will become invalid. (C) Is incorrect as it takes into
account only some students. Option (D) takes into account all students and
hence is correct.
The university campus will be familiar to all its students
He is a student of this university
He is familiar with the university campus
Hence conclusion is valid if option (D) is true

After the clockwise movement Burman has reached the point C. So he walked a
units. The only place when Ahmed has stopped is the mid point of side BC, since
he cannot overtake Burman as Ahmed and Burman are walking simultaneously
towards Burman and chhaya.
So option (C) must be false at it says that Ahmed might have walked for a
distance of more than 2a. For this to be possible Ahmed has to overtake Burman
which is not possible according to the condition given in the question.

42. (B) The conclusions that can be made from the two statements are that there could
be 2, 3 or 4 females and three out of the four members are college students.

Out of the conclusions given, II can be made as a maximum of 2 members could
be males.
And even if there were 2 females then there would be at least one female who
would be a college student.

43. (D) Conclusion I cannot be made as it is given some professors perform surgery and
the professors performing surgery may not necessarily be medical doctors.

Conclusion II cannot be made as it is not necessary that some medical doctors
perform surgery as they might be just philanthropists.

Conclusion III cannot be made as no such relation is given.

44. (A) Note that question takes into account possibilities as well
According to the given statement Raja may go for lunch irrespective of whether
Ravi agrees to stay back or not
Correct option is (A)

45. (A) According to statement 1 illegal production and marketing of coal is a significant
aspect of everyday life in eastern India. Statement 2 is consistent with this as it
talks about this illegality hiding unpleasant social reality. Statement 3 is not
consistent with the above two statements.
Answer is (A)

46. (A) CLOSE DNRWJ
C – D shift of one alphabet
L → N shift of 2 alphabets
O → R shift of 3 alphabets
S → W shift of 4 alphabets
E → J shift of 5 alphabets
Thus APART → BRDY. So, answer is (A).

47. (B) Statement 2 and 3 are incorrect as better roads/infrastructure can be a result of
elements other than local self-government. Hence option (B) is correct.

48. (C) The correct answer key for the questions from 1 to 4 is DCAA respectively.
Thus, through this answer key, the student who has answered as BCAA has got
3 questions correct. So answer is (C).

49. (C) The given statement says that any student who is taking a course in Marketing
as well as Strategy is also enrolled in Statistics course.
So, it is given what happens when a student is taking a course in Marketing as
well as Strategy.

Option (A): It is not necessarily true as there might be student taking Statistics
and not taking Strategy.
Option (B): It is not necessarily true as there might be student taking only
Statistics.
Option (C): It must be true as if a student is not taking Statistics, the reason must
be that he has not taken either Marketing or Strategy.
Option (D): It might be possible that a student has just not taken Marketing. Even
then he would not be able to take Statistics.

50. (B) Statement 1 and 2 are incorrect as ‘government support’ and ‘government
intervention’ may not be synonyms. Statement 4 is incorrect, as the argument
does not talk about exporting of goods. Hence option (B) is correct.

For question 51 to 55:
From the information given in the statements from 1 to 4 the given table can be deduced.

Wife City Month
* Jasmine
Abhishek * Brinda Ahmedabad
Deepak
* Geetika
Mridul * Veena Chennai
Pritam

* Jasmine
Ranjan * Brinda Delhi
Salil
Kolkata February
Hema * Ahmedabad April

* means does not belong to that place.
Now, from information no. 5, Getika can get married in Chennai or Kolkata, but from information
no. 1, Mridul wedding took place in Chennai and he was not married to Geetika.
So Geetika got married in Kolkata in the month of Feb and Ispita got married in Chennai with
Mridul in the month of Nov.

Now the table will be

Wife City Month
* Jasmine
Abhishek * Brinda Ahmedabad
Deepak
Mridul Ispita Chennai November
Pritam
* Jasmine
Ranjan * Brinda Delhi
Salil
Geetika Kolkata February
Hema * Ahmedabad April

Now from information No. 6, Pritam does not got married in Bengaluru or Kolkata, so he must got
married in Mumbai in December
& from information no. 7 we can say that
Salil got married to Jasmine in September
Now the table looks in September

Wife City Month
* Jasmine
Abhishek Ahmedabad
* Brinda
Deepak Geetika Kolkata February
Mridul Ispita Chennai November
Pritam Mumbai December
* Jasmine
Ranjan * Brinda Delhi April
Hema
Salil Jasmine September

Now, Salil got married in Bengaluru which in the only place left.
Now Pritam got married to Brinda, which is the only option left for her, since Abhishek doesn’t got
married to Brinda.
So, Veena got married to Abhishek which is the only person for her in the only left month July
So finally the table looks like..

Section - 3 : Quantitative Ability

For questions 61 and 62:

Machine 1 Machine 2
Product A 2 hrs 4 hrs
Product B 3 hrs 1 hrs
Total Time Available 6 hrs 8 hrs

X and Y represent the number units of A and B to be produced on a given day.
For Maximum Profit
Formulation will be:
Max profit = 5 X + 7Y
2X+3Y ≤ 6
4X + 1 Y ≤ 8
X + Y ≥ 8, X and Y ≥ 0 and integers

61. (A)

62. (C) There is no integer which satisfy the conditions.

63. (A) Rakesh took 15 hours and 40 minutes to paint four walls and the ceiling of a
room. Also the volume of the room is 900 cu. ft. and height is 10 ft.
So area of the ceiling of the room = 90 sq. ft.

 90 
Rakesh took   minutes i.e. 180 minutes (i.e. 3 hours) for painting the ceiling
 0.5 
of the room.

Rakesh took 3 hours less for painting four walls w.r.t to four walls and the ceiling
of a room. Hence he took 12 hours and 40 minutes for painting fours walls of the
room.

64. (C)
2007 2008
Salary 10 lakh 9 lakh
Expenditure 4 lakh (4 + 5% of 4) lakh = 4.2 lakh

65. (B) Case-1: If ‘0’ is at the unit’s place, then the number of ways of three-digit integers
= 3 × 4 = 12 ways
Case-2: If ‘5’ is at the unit’s place and ‘0’ is at the ten’s place, then the number of
ways of three-digit integers = 3 ways
Case-3: If ‘5’ is at the unit’s place and ‘0’ is not at the ten’s place, then the
number of ways of three-digit integers = 2 × 3 = 6 ways
So, total number of ways = 12 + 3 + 6 = 21 ways.

66. (A) After traveling a distance of “2 π nr”, both energy levels will be same because
they gain or consumed equal energy per unit distance.

67. (A) After traveling half circle, boost energy of Anand is ‘k π r’. So Anand’s energy
after traveling half circle = 2‘k π r’ and Ben’s energy is 0 after traveling half circle.
Hence difference is 2‘k π r’.

68. Error: The energy lost or gain per unit distance is not defined.

N− 2
69. (A) Interior angle (N) of a polygon =   × 180
 N 

Ν Interior Angle
3 60°
4 90°
5 108°
6 120°
As the number of sides increases, interior angle increases but there is a
decremented increase in the angle values. So option (A) describes the best
possible graph.

70. (A) The LCM of 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 = 6 × 7 × 4 × 3 × 5 = 2520
So, the greatest 4-digit number, which is divisible by 2520, is 7560.
So the number is 7560 – 2 = 7558
Sum of the digits = 25.

71. (D) For roots to be real and distinct D > 0
⇒ (2a)2 – 4 × 2a > 0
a > 2 or a < 0
1 ≤ a ≤ 4 (given)
2 < a ≤ 4 ⇒ a = 3, 4

JMET Paper 2010 [SET B]

Section - 4 : Data Interpretation

For questions 91 to 95:

91. C At the end of 2003:
Price of 1 stock of HDFC = Rs. 375
Price of 1 stock of Kotak = Rs. 375.
Price of 1 stock of Axis = Rs. 125.
Number of stocks of HDFC bought = 750/375 = 2.
Number of stocks of Kotak bought = 750/375 = 2
Number of stocks of Axis bought = (2750 – 750 – 750)/125 = 10.

Total amount obtained at the end of 2005 = Rs. (725 × 2 + 250 × 2 + 300 × 10)
= Rs. 4950.
Let the annual rate of return be 'r'.
Therefore, 2r/100 = (4950 – 2750)/2750
Therefore, r = 40%.

92. D It can be concluded from the graph given in the question that the absolute
amounts of change in yearly closing stock price from 2004 to 2005 and then again
from 2005 to 2006 been most similar.

93. D Stock price of Kotak at the end of 2007 = Rs. 1300
Stock price of Kotak at the end of 2006 = Rs. 410.
Therefore the stock prices have almost trebled.

94. B Statement I:
Since, the line from 2003 to 2005 is straight, therefore the PIICSP of HDFC from
2003 to 2004 will be more than that from 2004 to 2005.
Hence, statement I is not true.

Statement II:
PIICSP of HDFC from 2003 to 2005 is almost 100 % and the PIICSP of ICICI from
2004 to 2005 is 60%. Hence, statement II is not true.

Statement III:
PIICSP of ICICI from 2004 to 2007 is 230.6 % and the PIICSP of Kotak from 2006
to 2007 is around 230%. Hence, statement II is true.

95. D During the two year time period 2004 to 2006, the bank BOB exhibited a
near – zero rate of change in its closing stock price.

For questions 96 to 99:

96. B In rural India, maximum percentage increase in per capita consumption is for the
food item Meat/fish/eggs and is equal to 64.83%.

97. B The total per capita consumption of “Total Cereals” in India in 1988 is equal to
11.05 + 14.74 = 25.79, which is highest among all the given food items and hence
the food item “Total Cereals” has maximum percentage share.

98. D The food item “Other Cereals” has shown maximum possible decline in per capita
consumption and the percentage decline is equal to 43.27%.

99. B Four food items viz. Dairy, Edible Oils, Meat/fish/eggs and Vegetable fruit have
shown an increase in per capita consumption from 1988 to 2002 for whole of India.

For questions 100 to 102:

100. D Let the volume (in terms of quantity) of sale of garments = x = volume (in terms of
quantity) of accessories for store H.

Percentage of revenue from accessories = 17.5
Percentage of revenue from garments = 100 – 17.5 = 82.5

Average price of accessories in store H = Rs. 310.
Revenue generated from accessories = 310x = 17.5 % of total revenue.
Therefore 82.5% of total revenue would be equal to 1461x

Hence, average price of the garments for store H = Rs. 1461.

101. D Let 'a' be the volume (in terms of quantity) for stores B as well as F.
For store B:
Percentage of revenue generated from accessories = 30 %.
Percentage of revenue generated from garments = 100 – 30 = 70 %.
Average price of accessories = Rs. 365.
Revenue generated from garments sale = (7/3) × (365a) = 851.66a

For store F:
Percentage of revenue generated from accessories = 22.5 %
Percentage of revenue generated from garments = 100 – 22.5= 77.5 %
Average price of accessories = Rs. 100
Revenue generated from garments sale = (775/225) × (100a) = 344.44
Therefore, the required ratio = 2.47

102. B Let the revenues of the stores E and L be 'y'.

Revenue generated from accessories for store E = 0.425y.
Revenue generated from accessories for store L = 0.70y.

Volume (in terms of quantity) of accessories for store L = 0.7y/450 = 0.00155.
Volume (in terms of quantity) of accessories for store E = 0.425y/130 = 0.003269

Required Ratio = 0.475.

For questions 103 to 106:

103. C Required percentage = (20 + 15 + 30 + 12)/(38 + 42 + 50 + 20) x 100 = 51.33%.

104. C Required proportion = (8 + 20)/(38 + 50) = 28/88 = 7/22.

105. D Required fraction = 20/(10 + 20 + 10 + 5) = 4/9.

106. Percentage of experienced male students in the regular program
= (20 + 8 + 30 + 20)/(38 + 42 + 50 + 20) x 100 = 52%.

Percentage of experienced male students in the DLP program
= ((30 + 20)/100) × 100 = 50%.
Required difference = 52 – 50 = 2%

For questions 107 to 111:

107. A Required percentage = 0.1 × 0.4 × 800000 = Rs. 32,000.

108. D Increase in the annual income of a family is due to increase in the father's and the
mother's income.
Net Increase = 0.4 × 0.4 × 800000 + 0.3 × 0.3 × 800000 = 0.25 × 800000
= Rs. 200000.
Annual salary in 2008 = Rs. 800000 + Rs. 200000 = Rs. 1000000.

Amount spend on education in 2007 = 0.25 × 800000 = Rs. 200000.
Amount spent on education in 2008 = 2 × 200000 = Rs. 400000.

Required percentage= (400000/1000000) × 100 = 40 %.

109. B Expenditure in 2007 for all categories except Education = 0.7 x 800000
= Rs. 560000.
Expenditure in 2008 = Rs. 560000 + Rs. 400000 (spent on education)
= Rs. 960000.
vings = Rs. 1000000 – Rs. 960000 = Rs. 40,000.

110. A Amount spent on clothing and medical expenses in the year 2007
= (0.1 + 0.1) × 800000 = Rs. 160000.
In 2008 it remained the same = Rs. 160000.
Required answer = Rs. 320000.

111. C Amount spent on bills and miscellaneous expenses in the year 2007
= (0.08 + 0.12) × 800000 = Rs. 160000.
This remained the same in the year 2008.
Required percentage = (160000/1000000) × 100 = 16%.

For questions 112 to 115:

112. C In six years, viz. 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2007 all the variables have
shown similar trend.
