    Re: Problems in GATE preparation and discussion and their solutions

    Well, i think answer must be 5. As profit = selling price - production cost. So in all 4 cases, profit will be as follows :
    1.) Profit = (5 x 50) - (5 x 5 x 5) = 125
    2.) Profit = (10 x 50) - (5 x 10 x 10) = 0
    3.) Profit = (15 x 50) - (5 x 15 x 15) = - 375
    4.) Profit = (20 x 50) - (5 x 20 x 20) = 0

    And i have done mech engineering 7 years before so may be i am wrong in above given approach as trying such question after a long time...

    Thank you for replying and answering it.
    Basically u r checking it by the options, but by your approach I got an idea how to solve it.
    Assume no. of units as 'x'
    so, profit = 50x - 5x2
    so differentiate it to maximize.

    thanks for replying !!

    you are absolutely right that by differentiation we can get answer directly (50 = 10x)...anyways.....that's the beauty of objective questions....

    Choose the grammatically INCORRECT sentence:


    The committee initially asked for a funding of Fifty Lakh rupees, but later settled for a lesser sum.

    This country’s expenditure is not less than that of Bangladesh.

    They gave us the money back less the service charges of Three Hundred rupees.

    This country’s expenditure on educational reforms is very less

    The answer to this problem is D.
    I think the mistake is in 'very less' but I am not sure.
    And if u know the reason then explain.

    May be "The answer to this question is A"
    "funding" is incorrect ,fund should be mentioned here instead of funding.

    Answer is definitely D, as I checked it from the answer keys also. And all the four statements are focussing mainly on 'less'. So considering that we have to check keeping it in context.
