Distance travelled by shyam = 60*61= 3660
Relative distance (same direction) = 3660-1830= 1830m
1st meeting at 66 m , and rest at so rest 44 m, rest distance =1830-66 =1794
Perimeter of Track = 44 m. number of meetings in 1808 m = [1764/44] = 40

We know that faster meets or overtake slower in its every round except if they meet at
extreme ends then this meeting is including in a meeting of two rounds.

Time of meetings (in opposite direction) is given by (2n-1)*D/Speed Relative , where D is

Total round covered by faster (A) in 80 sec = [80 /(16/10)] = 50 rounds
Number of meeting at extreme end in 80 sec = 0
We know that faster meets or overtake slower in its every round except if they meet at extreme

& in 680! there are 676, 2's (i.e. 2^676 in 680!) and only 7 times 97 (i.e. 97^7 in 680!)
We have 7 bundles of 97^1 in 680! but only 6 bundles of 2^97 in 2^676
So, we have only 6 bundles of 2^97 in 2^676
so only n=6

CHOTU SESSION VERBAL #XAT:


Solution
141. Pecuniary is fiscal or related to money and
tectonic is related to the structure of the earths
surface. [d] is irrelevant. [a] and [b] have pairs of
words that share a qualitything relationship. Thus,
they do not share the same relationship as the
root pair. Hence, [c].
142. Acrophobia is a fear of heights.
Logophobia is a fear of words. Nelophobia is a
fear of glass. Pediophobia is fear of children.
Photophobia is the fear of light. Hence, [d].
143. The relationship between the given pair is one
of antonyms. Eclipse and unveiling are antonyms.
Similarly, pedigee is the point nearest to the earth,
while apogee is the point farthest from the earth.
Peripatetic means going from place to place in
order to work; eclectic means choosing from a wide
variety. They dont share the same relationship. [a]
& [b] are irrelevant. Hence, [d].
144. A 'bard' is a 'poet' or one who composes
poetry. A 'toreador' is a 'bullfighter'. A 'bugler' is
one who uses the bugle (a musical instrument), used
typically for sounding military signals. A 'bugler'
must, hence, not be confused with a 'burglar' who
is a thief. A 'drunkard' is described as a 'tippler' and
not a 'tipster'. A 'tipster' is one who sells tips or
information to bettors or speculators. A troubadour
is a wandering singer or minstrel. Hence, [b].

148. An imagery is the creation of mental


images that signifies sensory perception referred to
in a literary work. Ramesh uses imagery to
describe the mountains. Hence, [d].
149. An abbreviation is a shortened form of a
word or phrase. Thus, MRI stands for Magnetic
Resonance imaging. This is used by Smith, as he
has already mentioned it in brief during his
presentation.
Hence, [a].
150. A cliffhanger is a melodramatic narrative,
especially in films, serially published novels, etc., in
which each section ends at a suspenseful moment, so
that the audience will wait for the next episode.
Leena uses a cliffhanger on the advice of Cassia.
Hence, [c].
151. An anachronism is placing an event, person,
item, or verbal expression in the wrong historical
period. A car scene in a film based on Biblical
times is totally out of place. Ismail used this
anachronism in his school report. Hence, [c].
152. A synecdoche is a figure of speech in which
a part is used to designate the whole or the whole to
designate a part. When the captain of the ship bellows
All hands, he refers to his/her crew i.e., a part
for a whole. Hence, [b].

145. 'Antediluvian' and 'primeval' are synonyms and


mean very old, old-fashioned, or out of date;
'antiquated' or 'primitive'. Similarly 'neoteric' is
synonymous to 'recent' and also means 'modern'. All
other options are irrelevant. Hence, [a].

153. An onomatopoeia is a figure of speech in


which the sound of the words is made to suggest or
echo the sense. Joe reads aloud the lines showing
onomatopoeia, in Scotts novel. Thus, it is Scott
who used the figure of speech. Hence, [d].

146. An archaic term is a word, expression,


spelling, or phrase that is out of date in the
common speech of an era, but still deliberately used
by a writer, poet, or playwright for artistic purposes.
For sooth, which means in truth, is an archaic
term and is used by Saurav. Hence, [d].

154. An allegation is a public statement that is


made without giving proof, accusing somebody of
doing something that is wrong or illegal. Mr. Sequeira
made the allegation against Alistair of breaking into
his home. Hence, [c].

147. A palindrome is a word, sentence, or verse


that reads the same way backward or forward. Tot,
which means a small amount or a young child, is a
palindrome and is used by Sara. Hence, [b].

155. A soliloquy is a speech made to oneself; a


monologue. Reeves is caught speaking to himself by
Mohan.
Hence, [a].
156. According to Hoyle means in keeping with
the established rules. Up to the mark means good

AMIYA KUMAR ; Maths By Amiya, 3E Learning, Ranchi 9534002244


www.fb.me/MathsByAmiya

enough. After a fashion means to a certain degree,


not satisfactorily. At the top of the tree means in the
highest position or rank in a profession or career.
Given the context of the sentence a business
transaction the best fit would be option [a].
Hence, [a].
157. Art nouveau is a style of decorative art and
architecture that uses complicated designs based on
natural shapes. Since the sentence is talking about
film-making and not art or architecture, option [a] is
ruled out. la mode means fashionable and does not
fit the context. Florentine is used for food items and
is a dish too. Thus, only avant garde, which means
new and very modern ideas in art, music or literature,
that are sometimes surprising, fits in well with
the meaning of the sentence. Hence, [c].
158. Oscar Wilde says, through this quotation, that
people who lack imagination, in order to cover up this
lack, call it uniformity, consistency, a highly prized
concept. Option [a] makes the generalization that all
consistent people are unimaginative. Option [d] is
incorrect as the quote is not about weak imagination
but of a total lack of imagination. Between options [b]
and [c], [b] is a better answer when all else fails
corresponds with last refuge of the quotation it
implies that, when nothing else works, lack of
imagination is dubbed uniform action, which is
actually the meaning of the quotation. Hence, [b].
159. Mark Twains quote means that the outcome of
a fight is decided by the determination to keep
fighting rather than having the strength and skills
to fight. Option [d] is only partly true. Option [b]
contradicts the quotation because it implies that
sometimes strength is enough to win a fight. Only
option [a] gives the right meaning. Hence, [a].
160. Oliver Goldsmiths quote means that ones
strength is proved in the face of adversity. Option [a]
is incorrect, as it is not the intensity of the
circumstances but the hardships that make us prove
our strengths. Options [c] and [d] do not bring in the
hardship angle. Also, option [d] distorts the meaning.
Only option [b] gives the right meaning of the
quotation. Hence, [b].
161. To get along famously cannot fit in the
context because it means to have a good relationship
with somebody. Option [b] also cannot be used in the
context because it means to be punished or criticized
for something. To gather steam means to progress at
an increasing speed. Only to get a handle on, which

means to acquire an understanding of, can


replace the underlined phrase. Hence, [c].
162. A person who cannot be trusted is called a bad
egg; hence, the expression cannot be used in the
context. A person who is underweight is called a bag
of bones and paper tiger refers to a person or
institution that looks powerful but is actually weak.
Therefore, [c] and [d] are also negated. A person
who is bad and has a negative influence on others
is called a bad apple. Hence, [b].
163. A person who is untrustworthy is called a
dirty dog. Vicar of Bray refers to a person
who changes his beliefs and principles to stay
popular with his superiors. A person who advises
people on their personal problems is called an agony
aunt. The term devils advocate refers to a person
who argues only for the sake of argument. Hence, [a].
164. Volpone is another name for fox.
Salamander is a mythical being that looks like a
lizard and is believed to be able to live in fire.
A reeve is an administrative officer of a district or
town. Cherubim means a winged celestial being or
an angel. Hence, [d].
165. Plutocracy refers to a government or state
in which the wealthy class rules. Hence, [a].
166. An idolater is a person who worships idols in
an unquestioning manner. An iconodule is one who
serves images. An iconoclast is a person who
opposes accepted beliefs and traditions.
Ethnocentricism is the belief in the superiority of
ones ethnic group or culture. Hence, [c].
167. Ponder means to consider or think about
something deeply and thoroughly. Cogitate means
to ponder hards and ruminate means to reflect
on a matter over and over again. Therefore, the
correct sequence should be: think, ponder, cogitate,
ruminate. Only [b] gives the correct sequence.
Hence, [b].
168. Irritate, enrage and provoke are
synonymous and mean to disturb or annoy someone.
But to exasperate someone means to irritate or
provoke somebody to a high degree. Hence, [a].
169. To mesmerize someone means to fascinate
somebody almost in a hypnotic manner; whereas, to
astonish means to surprise someone. Petrify means
to turn into stone out of fear or any strong emotion.

AMIYA KUMAR ; Maths By Amiya, 3E Learning, Ranchi 9534002244

Only fidget, which means to move about restlessly


or nervously, is the appropriate word. Hence, [b].
170
Titter means to laugh quietly in an
embarrassed way. Chortle is to laugh loudly in
amusement and snigger means to laugh in an
unpleasant way at somebodys mistakes. Laugh is
the most general term, which is not indicative of any
strong or particular emotion like the other options.
Hence, [d].
171. To put the clock back means to return to a
situation that existed in the past and does not explain
the context properly. Option [b] is inadequate
because to keep a close eye means to just watch
somebody carefully and does not imply curtailing
someones powers or freedom. To close the book on
something means to stop doing something because
one no longer believes in its success; hence, it does
not fit the context. To clip somebodys wings means
to restrict a persons freedom or powers. Hence, [d].
172. Oblique means not straight or direct.
Outright, which means straightforward, is its

antonym. Bombastic means verbose or


pretentious; hence, its antonym would be
terse, meaning concise or pithy. Rhetorical is
synonymous to bombastic; inanemeans severely
critical. Therefore, none of these can be the correct
answer. Hence, [a].
173. To be up to ones neck in something means
to be very busy with something. To get something in
the neck means to be punished or criticized for
something that one has done. To save somebodys
neck means to prevent something bad from
happening to someone. To breathe down ones neck
means to pay very close attention to what one does
in such a way that it worries the person. To be
neckdeep in work means to be deeply involved
in something. Hence, [b].
174. Sharpness is an essential quality of a razor;
similarly, slyness is associated with a fox. Hence,
[c].
175. Positivism is a belief concerning philosophy
and not religion or God. Hence, [b].
