  1. sir, i think the answer to ques. 16 should be 6?? m i correct or pls tell me how it is 4.

    1. ya, u r right! thank u, I will rectify that

    2. sir i think 7 colours r in 16 th question

    3. Well,clef me chk n correct. Thank u

    4. brother can you please explain me ques38 didnt got wht u explained and thx a lot for this mock test

  2. Replies
    1. ya, that structure is rigid in deed! it cannot move if you give little push, that;s y option 1 suits

    2. Hello sir.
      according to mechanics if it is stated in the question that given picture is a "structure" then its already states that it is not going to have any degree of freedom,,i mean it is a solid, and rigid cannot move!!!
      so that mechanics is going to apply hear or not am confused?

    3. Ya, structure itself has no DOF, but it doesn't mean it is solid, even mechanisms having non zero DOF (are considered) are made of solids right, Don't worry abt mechanics, just chk (observe) whether the given mechanism is able to move or not with little displacement, that's it.

    4. Sir, can you explain to me how is the above structure rigid.
      only the bottom ones are fixed. rest all are free to move.
      if i push the top point downwards or upwards, wont it move?
      the bottom pts are pivoted to ground, it must mean that the bottom line is rigid, but other lines which are attached to the two pivoted points can rotate about their axis. so in the mechanism if i push the top pt downwards, the two diamond shaped formations will come towards each other.

    5. Basically the links are so connected that even if you push bottom or up or sideways, it won't move, there is always lateral constraints that will estriol the movement. Such mechanisms in mechanics are called structured, designs of which are often seen in bridges etc it is for sure static means it won't move

  3. Sir in Q.14, How did 'A' appear 13 times ? It appeared 16 times in visual.

    1. Exactly, it's 16, I chked that,
      I had my final exm today but was doing this mock test and answers yesterday!, probably did these mistakes in hurry! Thank you v much for pointing it our.

    2. sir once recheck the count of E in same... i got answer as 13... ignore if i am wrong.

    3. One more mistake from me! I must be sleeping at that time!
      Ya, it's 13, Thank u.

  4. Replies
    1. It's 32, (4*8) that's a typo, thank u

  5. Sir, in Q.15, there are 5 triangles & 4 semicircles of different colour ! If not, please explain how ?

    1. 2 triangles are colored white, what I asked in ques is "how many triangles with diff colors" so consider only 1 tiangle, ok ? and two semi circles are over lapping, coz of which part of their shape is different coloured and the color is not uniform, that's y I neglected, doesn't matter if u have done mistake in this ques. May be my questioning is not clear!

  6. Yes Sir, I got it ! Thank You ! :)

  7. Thank u all for pointing out the mistakes, it's embarrassing to see myself doing this many, probably coz of exams :P I will try to be careful for the next tests......

  8. Sir ! Q.no 42 , Google says "eternal india " is written by "indira gandhi" bt u have mentioned mahatma gandhi.. Plz check it out :) and Thank you for your wonderful blog :)

  9. Hi Sir,
    For question 19 A, I figured out 9 triangles but you have mentioned Optionc C (11 triangles) as correct option. Can you please help me out! :)

  10. sir plz could u explain Q 9 Shouldn't it be C and in Q 28 Coke bottles, Coke tins and Aquafina water bottle not recycleable??

    1. Actually, the ques should be which one is recyclable, thank u

    2. Sir Q.no 9 shouldn't it be C and plz could u upload more of these type of questions
      especially the solution of those which appeared in uceed 2015

    3. will try to release more mock test soon, let me deal with ceed exam students as there exm is tomorrow

  11. How much %age in mock test will labelled as good prep!bhai

    1. Can't compare with actual exam bhai, there level varies. Mock tests are to give you idea of the type of ques asked and to revise what you have learnt

  12. answer to question no. 11 shuould be c,d,e,f..

  13. How many marks are good marks for UCEED ? Please give some estimate.

  14. in question no16 is Grey not a color
    :P i am gettting one extra

  15. Replies
    1. Saurabh Dixit, the questions asks you about how many different patterns are in that image. Meaning how many different images/patterns exist. Do keep in mind that simple rotations do not add to as a new pattern or image and also keep in mind that some patterns might look very alike but might have the slightest difference between them, thus they are considered as different patterns and are not same ones at all. Hope this helped.

    2. Thank you for the explanation

    3. Thank u so much
      but i am still not able to get 12 :/

  16. what is a good mark to be ranked in the top 14 sir?
    please let me know. Thank you sir.

    1. Not sure Koushic, it varies every year depending on the max marks n competition.

  17. Darn this one felt tough was I suppose to feel that

  18. Someone please elaborate and explain the answer of question no 22

    1. acc. to figure string attatched to mass 2 is free, while other end is fixed to the centre of the pulley.If we consider m1 goes down by X cms., then the fixed end should increase by X cms. and also the string on the other side of the pulley holding mass 1 should increase by X cms. Now as mass 2 is attached to fixed end all the added string of (X+X) cms has to come from string on the side of mass 2.thus if mass 1 comes down by X cms. Mass 2 will go up by 2Xcms.Hope u got it Saurabh

  19. sir, not getting ques.24...how 32 is ans. pls explain!

  20. Sir, in Question 34... E can not be flipped downwards as it is symmetrical about horizontal?

  21. Hi, in question 8 there are images of croissants, baguettes and even wine which Paris is famous for; so shouldn't they also be included?

    1. I'm not pretty sure, as far as I know Germany is famous for wine and Mexico for baguettes. Pl correct if im wrong

  22. I cant understand ques number 38.

  23. In Answer no. 15, will there not be 4 semi circles of different colours(instead of given answer i.e. 2)?
    Please help Sir.

    1. Two semi circles are partly in one color and partly in other color. So, I didn't considered them! that's it.

    2. Sir what logic did you use for that?
      I am extremely confused..

      I am appearing or UCEED 2016, so if i come across a similar question, then should i or should i not consider the partly-overlappin semicircles?

    3. bro, I'm not understanding, why do u want to stress on a single question? It's ok, assume that the question is not clear and go ahead or otherwise if finding different colored semi-circles is the requirement, then I think 2 is fine!

  24. sir in question 9 PARIS is written 11 times and there are total 3 E.Towers so the answer should be 14.. am i right?

    1. Ya, u r right, considering the word paris in the small projected protion, it counts to 11 +3 = 14, thank u.

  25. Sir in ques 17 your answer is 12 by considering two identical patterns oftwo different colors as diffetent,, can you explain why co i think patterns of same geometry but different color must be considered as single pattern

    1. good question, I suppose what u said can be considered, thanks

  26. ques 7 ans C and D are same! :P
