In the town of Snyder, Bank A and Bank B were exhibitors at the annual Snyder Days Summer Festival in an attempt to find new depositors. Both Bank A and Bank B displayed booths and manned the booths with bank employees. At the end of festival, Bank A had registered 50 new depositors, and Bank B had registered 20 new depositors, leading to $200,000 in new deposits for each bank. Banks A and Bank B each spent$5,000 obtaining the new deposits from the festival, and each calculated its likely profits from the festival at $3,000. Which of the following conclusions can be most properly drawn from the statements above? a) Bank A and Bank B generated equivalent revenue from the festival b) On average, Bank A's new depositors deposited more money than did the new depositors of Bank B c) On the last day of the festival, Bank A and bank B each received the same number of new deposits d) Bank A has more depositors than does Bank B e) At the festival, Bank B specifically targeted those who would be able to deposit higher amounts of money I got it wrong (don't have the OA), but here's my approach: [Reveal] Spoiler: a) Bank A and Bank B generated equivalent revenue from the festival Hold b) On average, Bank A's new depositors deposited more money than did the new depositors of Bank B Other way around c) On the last day of the festival, Bank A and bank B each received the same number of new deposits Don't know about the different days d) Bank A has more depositors than does Bank B No information given e) At the festival, Bank B specifically targeted those who would be able to deposit higher amounts of money Maybe they just got one rich customer and 19 poor ones. The rich one raised the average. Maybe they just got their deposits by accident without targeting a special group. Don't know If you have any questions you can ask an expert New!

Which of the following conclusions can be most properly drawn from the statements above?

d) Bank A has more depositors than does Bank B
e) At the festival, Bank B specifically targeted those who would be able to deposit higher amounts of money

I got it wrong (don't have the OA), but here's my approach:
[Reveal] Spoiler:
a) Bank A and Bank B generated equivalent revenue from the festival Hold
b) On average, Bank A's new depositors deposited more money than did the new depositors of Bank B Other way around
c) On the last day of the festival, Bank A and bank B each received the same number of new deposits Don't know about the different days
d) Bank A has more depositors than does Bank B No information given
e) At the festival, Bank B specifically targeted those who would be able to deposit higher amounts of money Maybe they just got one rich customer and 19 poor ones. The rich one raised the average. Maybe they just got their deposits by accident without targeting a special group. Don't know

If you dont have the OA - how can u tell its the wrong answer?

i will go for E , because both the banks earns same amount of deposits, but Bank A registered 50 new depositors and Bank B registerd 20, so clearly Bank B has targeted higher amount depositors

a) Bank A and Bank B generated equivalent revenue from the festival - REVENUE vs. PROFIT
b) On average, Bank A's new depositors deposited more money than did the new depositors of Bank B - opposite may be true
c) On the last day of the festival, Bank A and bank B each received the same number of new deposits - maybe, maybe not.
d) Bank A has more depositors than does Bank B - in question are NEW depositors, not total
e) At the festival, Bank B specifically targeted those who would be able to deposit higher amounts of money - IMO, correct

A.
Profit=Total revenue-Total cost
For banks A and B, profit and total cost is same.
Then revenue must be same.

If you do their sample tests, they will mark your answers green (correct) or red (wrong). However, they don't tell you the correct answer. My "A" was red so it's wrong. Still, I don't know whether it's B, C, D, or E...

And what price are they asking to reveal the OA's and OE's, may I ask?

Only A makes sense.

What kind of practise tests are these if OA are not explained and revealed?
