Hello friends,

Here, we present to you a long Table Analysis dataset. The peculiarity of this dataset is that few cells of its column have 2 parameters. Pl. try this.

'The Table below presents status of 19 unfinished Dam Projects. These Dam projects were started during 4 different historical time periods-- Post Independence (1947 - 1975); Post Emergency (1975 - 1991); Post Liberalization (1991 - 2001); & Post Globalization (2001 - till date).'

For each of the following statements, select ‘Yes’ if statement is true based solely on the information provided in the table; otherwise select ‘No’.

Q1: - The number of projects started during Post Globalization period is greater than those started during any other period.

Q2: - The dam projects whose current status is 'Work In Process' were not finished because of 'Rehabilitation' cause of escalation only.

Q3:- Average revised project cost of the projects whose current status is 'Land Acquired' is more than the average revised project cost of the projects whose current status is 'Work Stalled'.

Should you wish to see interactive audio-visual solution to this question, pl. visit e-GMAT for free trial.

Regards!

Hi Shalabh ,
My ans:
1-N
2-N
3-Y

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...

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.

Thanks Shalabh for your reply...I did the same way as you've mentioned without going for actual calculation.However,it took time because of navigation among different windows as I've mentioned earlier.

BTW,request you to come up with some tougher qs. I mean 700+ level qs like verbal.
