the aspirant on his/her ability to understand sen tences, paragraphs and passages. Needless to say,no matter how good or bad your Verbal reasoning might be, your f ocus of preparation has to be on trying to improve your ability to grasp the mea nings of sentences, paragraphs and passages on a variety of topics. Before we start to look at the specific requirements for Verbal Section, we firs t need to understand the most basic problem for CAT aspirants in the Verbal Sect ion. If you were to ask test takers about how many questions they attempted corr ectly in test, most of them would be unable to answer.And the things become even absurd when they would be unable to recall the exact number of questions they a ttempted in Verbal section particularly. This lack of awareness has much wider impact than many of us assume.This becomes the biggest hurdle for most students in improving their scores. Besides, it als o results in creation of huge amounts of uncertainty in minds of test takers and they are not able to realize whether they have done enough in this section. Tes t takers carry over of this uncertainty to other sections,results in an overlap drop in confidence and ultimately reflects in scores So,any attempt at improving this your scores in VA and RC has to necessarily work on this issue. Coming back to the main topic, Time available to develop scores is as important as an individual's ability. The strategies and exercises are totally different i n short time span than that of in longer spans. This lesson will focus more on S hort term techniques as CAT is less than two months away. Best short term method to improve your language test scores is to become aware o f the error types that occur while you solve different question types. It is onl y then that you will be able to identify the specific thought error that you are committing and only after identification of the same can you work to remove it STEPS TO IMPROVE The following process if adopted thoroughly has the potential to help you remove the repetitive errors that you are making and hence develop your test scores. STEP # 1 Solve an exercise with or without time constraint. While doing this be sure to w ork on one type of question at a time. Note: Make sure you are comfortable and in good mood to study. Your attitude tow ards Verbal Section should be positive and voracious. STEP # 2 Once you are done with the exercise, without looking at the solutions, go back t o every answer that you have marked. Evaluate the logic of each answer and based on your confidence in the logic you have used in marking the answer, mark each answer as: Definitely correct Probably correct Probably wrong Definitely wrong STEP # 3 Check your answers and find out your scores for each answer type as specified ab

ove. STEP # 4 Analyse your errors based on the following error types. Error Type # 1: Definitely correct gone wrong:This error type is the most sadden ing one as it attacks directly on confidence.You miss out the specific logic whi le solving the problem as well as while making your answer as definitely correct .Note: You shouldn't take it as a big deal and should work on the problem to fig ure out and you can take my word on the fact that you will not miss this topic a gain, if worked out sincerely. Error Type # 2: Probably correct gone wrong: Focus will be still on the same are as that you will be working for the Error # 1 Error Type # 3: Probably correct gone right: The error is as bad as Error # 2. T he focus should be on :-Why were you not able to eliminate the incorrect options completely. This doesn't mean you shouldn't use smart guesses but for practice it should be avoided. Note: Remember,this is this problem we are trying to solve. Error Type # 4: Probably wrong gone right: What made you think that the incorrect option was right, at the first go? Are you not clear with the topic on which problem is based upon? Weren't you seriously thinking while attempting test?% This problem can be called inconsistent thinking or lack of self confidence. Error Type # 5: Probably wrong gone wrong: Question is still the same as the que stions with Error # 4. Focus should be on - " Why were you not able to spot the strength of the specifi c logic that supported the correct option. Error Type # 6: Definitely wrong gone wrong:This error simply shows lack of thin king work while solving the problem or in some cases, you were not able to apply the correct logic (that you were knowing) at the right time. You would mark a question as definitely wrong, only and only if you had somehow realised that the original logic you had used was incorrect. In such a case, you need to ask yourself a simple question: Why were you not able to spot the correct answer while solving the question for the first time? Error Type # 7: Definitely wrong gone right: You should have been able to identi fy the question as definitely right. Only goes to show that you never got a hang of the specific question, or better say topic. In such a case, you need to iden tify the logical oversight that occurred during your analysis of the question th at made you mark answer as definitely wrong instead of definitely correct. In case you are unable to solve a specific question in Verbal Section, it means that the level of doubt inserted inside the question is beating you. Hence, you should focus on Simple lessons on those particular topics.

can any one find out the last non zero digit of the following 1. 37! I am using the samle example to illustrate the simplest way to find the right mo st non zero digit of a factorial. Find the rightmost non zero digit in 37! Step 1: First express the no. as a multiple of 5 In our example it would be 37 = 5 X a + b a = 7, b = 2 Step 2: Now the rightmost non zero digit in 37! = R( R(2^a) x R(a!) x R(b!) ) = R ( R(2^7) x R(7!) x R(2!) = R ( R(128) x R(5040) x R(2) = R ( 8 x 4 x 2 ) rightmost non zero digit in 37! = 4 The best thing about this technique is that it can be used to find the rightmos t non zero digit of even large nos recursively. Hope that solves your problem. Cheers !!!! Ragil Ravindran Hyderabad ) )
