  1. hi,
    I m having a problem with Q.31...I m getting 28 no of sides(after considering the bottom side).I hav tried ur technique too bt still m getting the same...ur answer is 29...

    1. Yes, it has to be 28, my counting mistake!

      I have corrected that with explanation,
      Thank you for bringing it to me :)

    2. Btw thanks for putting up these kind of exercises. I gained a hell lot of confidence.

  2. Hi Bhanu

    in the same question 31, do we need to assume another triangle on left side like we have on right side of the image appears to be symmetrical. my confusion is do we need to assume such missing outline or do we need to strictly follow the image.


    1. Hello Sandeep,

      Such kind of solids usually come in symmetrical way, so obviously we have to assume the same kind of pattern as in left side (for this particular solid). If the solid is not symmetry, then the image that you will be provided with, will show all the details, so I don't think there will be confusion in such cases.

    2. 25th answer seems to be D -Polypropolene as per wikipedia, refered link (wikipedia.org/wiki/Optical_disc_packaging)

    3. For 25th question, Answer is D.Polypropylene.
