In 2010, UK-based research organization examines these symptoms arouse in mobile phone users and you will amaze to listen that only in Britain 53% of cell phone users are Nomophobe who react rubbishly when they lose their mobile phone, run out of battery, credit, or network coverage. Recently, Caglar Yildirim, a Ph.D. student in human computer interaction and Ana-Paula Correia, an associate professor at ISU’s School of Education have decided to identify four dimensions of this contemporary phobia. With the association of US researchers, questionnaire has prepared to determine the score based results of Nomophobia developed in the country.In Questionnaire, participants were provided with question list and their scores were calculated based on their responses 1 (Strongly disagree) to 7 (Strongly agree). The list included the questions like “I would feel uncomfortable without constant access to information through my Smartphone”, “Being unable to get the news (example happenings, weather, etc.) on my Smartphone would make me nervous.”Moreover, other queries were like I would be annoyed if I could not look information up on my Smartphone when I wanted to do so. I would be annoyed if I could not use my Smartphone and/or its capabilities when I wanted to do so.Running out of battery in my Smartphone would scare me. If I were to run out of credits or hit my monthly data limit, I would panic. If I did not have a data signal or could not connect to Wi-Fi, then I would constantly check to see if I had a signal or could find a Wi-Fi network. If I could not use my Smartphone, I would be afraid of getting stranded somewhere. If I could not check my Smartphone for a while, I would feel a desire to check it… were some more detailed queries in Questionnaire.Additionally, there is another section which is headed with the line ‘If I did not have my Smartphone with me’ then I would feel anxious because I could not instantly communicate with my family and/or friends, I would be worried because my family and/or friends could not reach me.Other questions were: I would feel nervous because I would not be able to receive text messages and calls.

Agra’s pride and a symbol of immense love ‘Taj Mahal’ turned out to be the first ever monument listed its account in illustrious Social Media portal ’Twitter’. On the eve of independence, UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav launched the official twitter account – @Taj Mahal. Throughout the world, no such monument greeted this way. In 1653, Mughal emperor Shah Jahan made it in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. History itself designated this tomb shaped building as the world’s most celebrated structures. But with the time the monument is losing its luster and immense popularity too. Just with an idea to give its esteem back, UP government has taken monument’s Twitter account within you people. Now you can share your pictures and memories linked with it on hashtag #MyTajMemory.Sources say that it was suggested to launch the account from Taj Mahal itself but while keeping an eye on security issues Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) denied the purposal. While this big release, CM Yadav shared his family picture standing in front of Taj Mahal and tagged it on account. Till now more than 2500 visitors has written their stories and many are following.On the bio of the Twitter account written “The official Twitter handle of the World’s most Loved Monument, located in Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India. One of the wonders of the World.” So, when you are going to Share your love and everlasting memories with beautiful pictures on Twitter? Post it today and give your love mate a gift showing affection before the whole world.

Symmetric Relation I
Taller, bigger, heavier, smaller, more, less etc are the recognized words of English, however once it comes in “reasoning portion” make the puzzle more baffled and almost out of head.There are n ways to crack these types of symmetrical puzzles but I have taken most easygoing technique i.e. Directional Arrows. Let’s see how…
Problem 1: If John is richer than Samantha, but not so rich as Danny, then Samantha is?
Richer than John
Richer than Danny
Poorer than Danny
Neither richer nor poorer than Danny
Condition is John is richer than Samantha – Draw a Downward arrow showing John is richer than Samantha
Condition is but no so rich as Danny- In sentence the comparison of Danny is with John as main subject where it cleared than John is not so rich as Danny that means Danny is richer than John.
Merging both diagrams, it shows Danny is richer than John and John is richer than Samantha.
Conclusion- As shown in figure above, Samantha is poorest of all.
Options (c) Poorer than Danny: True! Samantha is poorer than Danny as well as John. Problem 2: A is taller than B but shorter than C. D is taller than A but shorter than C. E is taller than B but shorter than A. The tallest person is?
A is tallest
B is tallest
C is tallest
D is tallest
Condition is A is taller than B but shorter than C: A is taller than B whereas A is shorter than C.
Condition is D is taller than A but shorter than C: D is taller than A but D is shorter than C
Condition is E is taller than B but shorter than A: E is taller than B but E is shorter than A.
Conclusion: Merge all the conditions and the sequence becomes C>D>A>E>B
C is Tallest option (c) is right.Problem 3: Out of five friends, the age of Deepak is in the middle. Kamal is the youngest. Alka is older than Naren. Mohan is the younger as compare to Deepak and Deepak is younger as compare to Naren. Who is the eldest?
Condition is Deepak is in middle: Deepak age is in between all his four friends.
Condition is Kamal is the youngest: Kamal age is lowest means it is at the lowest level.
Condition is Alka is older than Naren: Alka age is higher than Naren
Condition is Mohan is the younger as compare to Deepak and Deepak is younger as compare to Naren:
Merge Condition 3 and 4:
Applying Condition 2: Kamal has lowest age the sequence becomes Alka>Naren>Deepak>Mohan>Kamal
Alka is eldest option (a) is right.Problem 4: Among five colleagues, Joy earns less salary than Kim but more than Rocky. David earns more than Joy but less than Eddy. Eddy earns more than Kim. Who earns the highest salary?
Condition is Joy earns less salary than Kim but more than Rocky: Kim has highest salary
Condition is David earns more than Joy but less than Eddy:
Condition is Eddy earns more than Kim: Merge in condition 1…
The sequence becomes Eddy> David/ Kim>Joy>Rocky.
Eddy earns highest salary. Option (a) is correct.Now one question for you let’s see how much you have learnt.. Question: Five boys A, B, C, D and E are sitting on a ladder. E is above A, C is below B, B is below A and D is above C. Who is at the bottom? Options are A,B,C or D. >>CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD PDF FILE..Related Posts: Discover how to polish Reasoning skills, Blood Relation IIPosted byShikha Nandaat02:57Email ThisBlogThis!Share to TwitterShare to FacebookShare to PinterestLabels:Reasoning SkillsFriday, 21 August 2015
Do you know our divine Sun is going on 15 day trip?
Yes! It’s true! NASA has declared 15 Days of Darkness in November 2015. But it doesn’t mean you are free from office and day to day work. Some even believes that world is going to end. Hold on! The report says that people need not to worry as this is completely a natural phenomenon that occurs after every 26,000 years.This ‘November Black out’ event will take place between November 15 to November 29, 2015, NASA said. Astronomers clarify the fact that this process is called ‘galactic eclipse’ which haven’t taken place over 1 Million. The big reason behind this ‘15 day night out’ is some another astronomical event that will happen within Jupiter and Venus resulting a complete darkness starting at 3 A.M on November 15 and will ended at 4:15 P.M on November 30. In detailed study, scientist unwrap some very interesting things like while astronomical event happening between Venus and Jupiter, our earth passes from dark rupture of the galaxy in solar system that cause gap resulting in complete absorption of all the photons. Because this phenomenon came about between earth and sun, not a single sun ray will hit the earth leading dark shade.Blown up? Out of mind? This announcement has taken a form of debate and people are separated on their different opinions.Some say its false where as some really believe this is going to happen and finish their life. Well from my end, its gonna be a big surprise for us. What do you think? Is that all true? What are you planning to do in these 15 days? Think over it….

Solving Square Root is a child’s play now
Finding Square Root of two or three digit number is the easiest of all but when digits go on adding, we feel fearsome how to solve puzzle within a second or two. Friends! If you are at the similar situation where you have a long mathematical puzzle in which square root is just a part of it then let me take you out of this agony. Here we go….First of all go through these important facts:Number ending with 2,3,7,8 will never give you a perfect square.
Number ending with odd number of Zeros again has no perfect square.
Let’s try to solve the Square Root with simplest methodSquare Roots of four digit number (For Perfect Squares):
Question1: √ 1024
Solution: Steps to solve:Break the number into two halves i.e. 10 and 24
Take the second half i.e. 24 and check extreme last digit 4 appearing in the table:
The extreme last digit 4 is coming after the squaring of 2 and 8.This indicates that answer will contain last digit from these options 2 and 8.
Now take first half i.e. 10 and check the table again.
Now check first half 10 lies in squares and choose the smaller value always.
From 3 and 4, 3 is smaller and become first digit of your answer.
Now we have options of first and last digit of answer 32 or 38.
To find out the right option multiply 3 and 4.
Given 10<12 b=””> so choose the smaller option 32.
Square Root of 1024 is 32.
Question2: √ 2116
Solution:Break into two halves 21 and 16
Take the second half and check extreme digit 6 appearing in the same table.This indicated that answer will contain last digit from these two 4 and 6.
Now take first half i.e. 21 and again check the table.
Now check first half 21 lies in squares and choose lower value always.
From 4 and 5, 4 is smaller and become first digit of your answer.
First and last digit options of answer 44 and 46.
To find out the right option multiply 4 and 5
Given 21>20 so we choose greater value i.e. 46.
Square Root of 2116 is 46.
Square Root of Five Digit Number (For Perfect Squares):
Question1: √ 13456
Solution:Break into two halves such that you always left with two digits in second half.
134 56Repeat step 2 and 3 again.
6 appear in 4 and 6 and become options of answer’s last digit.
Now take first halve. Table is extended as we have now first half containing three digits.
Now check first half 134 lies in squares and choose lower value always.
11 becomes first digit of the answer.
First and last digit options of answer are 114 and 116.
To find out the right option multiply 11 and 12
Given 134 >132 so choose greater value i.e.116
Square Root of 13456 is 116.
Question2: √ 9025
Solution:Break into two halves 90 and 25 such that you always left with two digits in second half. .
90 25Second half 25 is perfect square of 5 so we have only one option of last digit i.e. 5
Take 90 and check where it lies and take the lower value always.
9 will be your first digit of answer.
Square Root of 0925 becomes 95.
Square Root of Six Digit Number(For Perfect Squares):
Question1: √ 262144
Solution:Break into two halves 2621 and 44 such that you always left with two digits in second half.
2621 44Check the second half 44 appear in table.
Last Digit 4 appears at 2 and 8.
Now take first halve. Table is extended as we have now first half containing four digits .
Now check first half 2621 lies in squares and choose lower value always.
51 becomes first digit of the answer.
First and last digit options of answer are 512 and 518.
To find out the right option multiply 51 and 52
Given 2621 < 2652 so choose smaller value i.e. 512 and is the answer.
