Hi Shalabh ,
It was rather an easy one but time consuming..For me actually its taking time for navigating among qs. window-tables-calculator screen. Are we going to face the same navigation issue in real GMAT scenario..?Will the onscreen calculator be available on the same screen like main qs. screen in actual GMAT ?
Could you please share the OA and corresponding explanations for this qs...?
BTW,look forward to seeing many such posts on the club from e-gmat
. Hope you'll keep the bar high in IR also like Verbal...
Appreciate your reply.
Thank you debayan for appreciating.
Yes. The answers are N/N/Y
. I agree that the questions are easy, but I do not think that they are time consuming. I think question # 3 might have taken more time had you approached through traditionally.
Secondly, in real GMAT exam, you need not navigate through multiple images. The table will be provided to you with sorting feature, but you can sort the table in ascending order only. With a mere click, one can sort the table column-wise. Also, the on-screen calculator will be provided to you.
As far as question 3 of this dataset is concerned, there is no need to calculate the mean revised project cost of Land Acquired, & Work Stalled projects. Simple estimation will do. If you sort the table by column 5, you can group Land Acquired, & Work Stalled projects as shown in the image.
Here, you will observe that the revised cost of Warna ( $ 21,495.4M) of Land Acquired subset projects is more that 10 times the highest revised cost of work Stalled dam project- Ghansor ( $1989.5M). So it is obvious that the mean revised project cost of Land Acquired would be more than the revised cost of Work Stalled projects.
