number of blanks given. we have 2 choose the choice in
the blank.
it was about poeple 2 put money in market. about risk
and etc.
it was easy.
quant
-----
<1> If g (0)=g (1)=1 And g (n)= g (n-1) + g (n -2)
find g (6);
Q like this one. just know the method
Sol:
-----
G(0) = 1
G(1) = 1
G(2) = G(1) + g(0) = 2
G(3) = g(2) + g(1) = 3
G(4) = g(3) + g(2) = 5
G(5) = g(4) + g(3) = 8
G(6) = g(5) +g (4) = 13
<2>A plane moves from 9?N40?E to 9?N40?W. If the plane
starts at 10 am and takes 8 hours to reach the
destination, find the local arrival time?
Q like this one. just know the method
Ans:
-----
The time is calculated on the basis of longitude.
(Based on sunrise)
Sun rises earlier in calcutta than in Mumbai.
The 40 degrees east and 40 degress west are calculated
form 0 degrees.
The plane has travelled westwards by 40+ 40 = 80
Degrees. (WEST)
For each degree there is a difference of 4 Minutes.
The difference in timings is 320 Minutes behind.
As per the starting point time 10.00 AM the flight
should have reached at 6.00
PM.
Reducing 320 Minutes from it we get 12.40 PM local
time at the destination
<3>Given $ means Tripling and % means change of sign
then,find the value of $%$6-%$%6
Q like this one. just know the method
ans
---
((3)*(-1)*(3)*6 ) - ((-1)*(3)*(-1)*6)
<4>The size of a program is N. And the memory occupied
by the program is given by M = 4000 sqr_root(N). If
the size of the program is increased by 1% then how
much % inc in memory?
ans
---
=(4000(sqr_root(1.01N)-sqr_root(N)))/(4000sqr_root(N))
