Highest, Longest, Tallest, Largest, Smallest places form an important part of questions in competitive examinations like SNAP, XAT, IIFT, IBPS, TISS, Bank PO etc. Below is a list of some of the most important Longest, Largest, Highest places around the World and in India.
This post has been divided into two sections, Around the World and Inside India.
In the first section, Around the World, all the places have been divided into sub-sections based on Longest, Largest, Highest, Tallest, Smallest and Biggest.
In the second section, Inside India, all the places have been divided into sub-se
Nike caused controversy with its advertising campaign during the 1996 Olympics by using the slogan, "You Don't Win Silver — You Lose Gold." Nike's use of this slogan drew harsh criticism from many former Olympic Silver medallists. In a way, it did undermine the importance of the second position but in Math things are often very different. Figuring out the second last digit is often tougher than figuring out the last digit. It is unlikely but definitely not impossible that in CAT you get a straightforward question that asks you to find out the second last digit of a number (abcpqr). It di
While we do run offers from time to time, Teachers Day has a special place in my heart. In mid of 2012, I was still wondering about whether or not I should quit my job to focus fully on Handa Ka Funda. I had experimented with online content, videos, online courses - paid or free, and multiple other stuff but I wasn't really sure if selling a course online in India with no marketing and virtually no team was a viable business model. I was not looking at Handa Ka Funda as a startup or a big company but like a really small project which could generate enough money for a sustainable living. If
As an astute man Mr. Gump once said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you going to get.” The Permutations and Combinations that life presents us daily is baffling and probably it is because of that inherent fear of choices and cases we get intimidated by such questions in the exam. I understand that P & C is one of the dreaded topics but I hope that once you understand the fundas given below, your fear will reduce.

For this series of articles, I am assuming CAT 2017 would be the first time you would be attempting CAT, which essentially implies that you are not well versed with the basic ideas behind the Quantitative Aptitude portion. In the latter half of the year, I would move to slightly more advanced topics as by then, you would also have moved to the advanced stage of preparation.

I have often seen students struggle with the topic – ‘Permutation & Combination’. As a matter of fact, I have even seen some faculties shy away from conducting those cl
In my previous post on games and tournaments, we discussed about two of the popular types of questions when it comes to games and tournament questions. So, if you are looking for questions on new types of data representation or questions based on seeding in a tennis tournament, probably you should read that. However, there is another popular type of questions with respect to Games & Tournaments and that is – Football / Hockey tournament questions in which we have to find out Goals scores, winners, ties, etc.
In such tournaments, all competitors play a fixed number of matches. Poin
In Logical Reasoning very often we encounter problems based on games of tournaments. The first thing that as a CAT taker you need to realize is that such tournament based format offers the examiner a multitude of options. So, there cannot be a set formula for solving such kind of questions. However, if you look at the CAT papers of past few years – a pattern seems to emerge. Let us discuss couple of them.
Type 1: The questions are typically in a set where the data will be either in the standard tabular format or a format which you would never find on Cricinfo or for that matter
There are some topics in Quantitative Aptitude, like Permutation & Combination, where you can easily find out the answer and the answer you calculate is there in the options but it turns out to be wrong. And then there are some topics in which you read the question, understand it but cannot even begin solving it. You get stuck at the first step and you have no idea about how to even approach the question. The irritating fact is that you understood the question properly. It happens very frequently with questions on Time Speed & Distance (TSD). I have always been a big advocate of
I guess my first fascination with problems of Time, Speed and Distance began when I first saw Heena. An important part of the story line if you can call it that, saw Rishi Kapoor floating from India to Pakistan without drowning. I remember arguing with my friends that if could float for that long – he could swim back to India as well. My friends nullified the argument by saying: Speed River > Speed Rishi Kapoor I know that the reference is a little dated for most readers of this post, but Zeba Bhaktiyar made me look beyond reason. In this post we will discuss some of the id
In the previous post we discussed lines, triangles, parallelograms, trapeziums, polygons etc. Now, we will discuss other expanses of geometry which are vital as, the questions on these topics are asked repeatedly in CAT. Let us look at few of the fundas / formulae on these topics that are often neglected by students and can fetch some crucial marks in the exam.
Funda 1: Angle made by Secants
In both these cases, PA * PB = PC * PD
Funda 2: Common Tangents
Note: The two centers
