Can you explain how did you solve it? To me this problem looks strange, unless its missing something.

I haven't taken it yet. I decided to just work on problems I got wrong and problems I got right for the wrong reasons. You guys (Duttsit and CompanY) should really buy access to the challenge archives (not to sound like an advertisement) - they are great! The problems are pretty tough.

Having said that, I completed challenge 7 from the archives on Saturday morning. I got blown away - 70th percentile (compared to the folks that took it during the challenge). So I'm going through the damage now.

Unfortunately, I can't post any of the challenges, I just read the sticky asking that people not post challenge materials. I apologize for having had posted some in the past.

Hey duttsit, when are you beating the real test? With your skills, you don't need to wait for so long!

qsr, thanks for inspiratiom, but Kaplan test i took recently tell otherwise. I got slaughtered (in Titleist term). I need to avoid silly mistakes (reading b/a as a/b, missing positive integer as integer etc etc).

Titleist, i never did any challenge. Do you think they are worth practice from the GMAT viewpoint. I heard they are much tougher than what we see in real test even when you scoring high.

I definitely think the challenges are worth it. SOme questions are very difficult while other questions I think are quite reasonable. Although Duttsit, I think you'd probably get close to a perfect score on quant section of the real exam. You are probably just better off working on verbal.

I agree that he doesn't need anymore practice on Quant. But, if he goes off to Verbal, who will post the right answers to your questions?
Some of them, I wouldn't even go near

Oh no! In no way am I telling him to leave the math section. I need this guy!

GSR - you can hold your own!

is there a shortcut to find how many factors a number has given that we can find out the primes?

yes. write number into prime number factorization form. if:
x = a^u * b^v * c^z

the total number of factors: (u+1) * (v+1) * (z+1)

for example:
90 = 3^2 * 2 * 5
total number of factors: (2+1) * (1+1) * (1+1) = 12
