    in slot 2 the socrates and bacon summary question, answer should be answer 2 and not 4.

  2. Rohit says:

    In VARC(Slot 2m question id : 4891686017), the wimbeldon set odd one out questions states that the option 4 ( Once he had survived the opening week, the second week witnessed the range of a rested Federer’s genius), has been marked as the odd sentence. However according to the flow of other sentences in the paragraph, it is evident that the paragraph is talking about the success of Federer in the recently held Wimbeldon. The 5th option talks about the reasons as to why he will be successful in future, and not about the wimbeldon performance. So should’nt 5th option be the odd one here.

    1. In the LRDI section of slot 1, the question on flights- the minimum number of “DIRECT FLIGHTS to be scheduled” should be 9*10=90 (though the minimum number of ” DIRECT FLIGHT TRIPS” is 180) if we assume that the flights which were sent from, say city ‘A’
    to city ‘B’ in the morning, the same flight is used for coming to city ‘A’ from city ‘B’ in the evening. This is very practical and does not violate the condition given in the question.

    2.In slot 1 RC question on Maps, I believe the answer to the question that asks ” purpose of the passage”- the answer should be ” It explores some myths about maps” and not “It corrects a misconception…”. The reasoning is that the passage completely talks about various myths prevailing at different places based on which people prepared their maps.



  5. Vinay Chaturvedi says:

    The question on Simple Happiness Index in slot 1 was totally wrong. There were 3 countries in total having the highest total score of 17 and the breakup of each of them contained the highest score in exactly one parameter so options can be 746 or 575(SFC).{As 664 won’t be an option as this will violate the point 3 in the question and also 655 adds up to only 16, so all 3 countries need to have a 7 which is not there in the table} As there is no other option and only 2 ‘seven’ scores for S and F are there, there cannot be a C having a 7 for the third country, thus violating the logic. I found many such worng questions in the paper.

  6. […] CAT 2017 QuestionsOfficial Answer KeyScore Vs Percentile Clearly, CAT 2016 was significantly tougher than CAT 2015.
