### BAA at ZS Associates was asked...

15 May 2013
 How can you find 3 fastest horses among of 25 horses with 5 race tracks given to you to find out by race them up(in minimum races)?6 AnswersI answered at 8 races. Divide 5 groups of five horses. Race one by one group and will get a fastest horse from every group.(5 races) Race between all 5 fastest horses of all group. (5+1 races). Race between all 5 second fastest horses of all group. (5+1+1 races). Race between all 5 third fastest horses of all group. (5+1+1+1 races).You missed out the probability that all 3 horses might be of the same groupDivide 5 groups of 5 horses. Get top 3 in each group(5). You are left with 15. Then 3 more races in that group of 15 (5+3). You are left with 9. Then 2 more races in that group of 9(5+3+2). You are left with 6. Then 1 more race in that group of 6(5+3+2+1). You are left with 4. Then a last and race to decide best 3 of 4.(5+3+2+1+1). So, total comes to 12.Show more responses9 is the lowest I can figure out. Run 5 races with five random groups of horses, call the groups A B C D and E. Take the winners from each group and put them in their own group (Winner's group). Also put the second place winners in the Second Place group, and the third place winners in the Third Place Group. At this point there have been five races. The key to the problem is to recognize that while the Winner's Group may or may not contain the first, second, AND third fastest horse (or the first and second, or just the first), the Second Place Group cannot contain the fastest horse (since every horse in the Second Place Group has been beaten by at least one horse). The Second Place Group MIGHT, however, contain the second and third fastest horse. Similarly the Third Place group cannot contain the first or second fastest horse, since each horse in the TPG (third place group) has been beaten by 2 horses. So, now at this point, we can easily find the fastest horse by simply racing the Winner's Group, to bring us up to a total of 6 races. Now race the SPG (second place group) and TPG, for 2 more races, bringing our total to 8. Take the second and third place horse from that race, the first and second place horse from the SPG, and the fastest horse from the TPG, and race them (9 races). The winner of that race is the second fastest horse, and the runner up the third fastest.1 race! Make all 25 horses run on one race track. The top 3 are your fastest horses.5+1+1 = 7 Races. 5 races: 5 random groups( A,B,C,D,E). After the race assign them numbers as per finished position ( A1, A2, A3 ,A4, A5). 6th race: Take 1's of all 5 groups ( A1, B1, C1 , D1, E1) and race them. Lets assume A1 comes 1st , B1 comes 2nd and likewise E1 comes fifth. A1 occupies 1st place and need not race again. It is the fastest horse Now the possibilities for 2nd place are A2 (or) B1 (2nd position of 6th race) ( A2 & B1 - 2 horses selected to race again) Possibilities for 3rd place : A3 (or) B2 (or) C1 ( 3 horses are selected to race again ) 5 horses are selected 7th Race : Race all these 5 horses ( A2, B1, A3,B2,C1) and the winner would be 2nd fastest while runner up would be 3rd fastest

### Decision Analyst at EXL Service was asked...

10 Aug 2013
 There was a tricky question on logical reasoning, which, if not encountered before, can be loopy. It goes like this: 3 men go to a hotel and pay the hotel manager a total of Rs. 30. (10 each) Later the manager realizes that the rent is Rs 25 and sends back Rs 5 via the bellboy. He then gives 1 each to the three men, which makes their net contribution Rs 9 each. The bellboy keeps the remaining Rs 2. So that makes it a total of Rs (3*9 + 2)= Rs 29. Where has the remaining Re 1 gone?3 Answersit is 3*9.333.. not 3*9So the guys gave 25 (to manager) and 2(to bellboy). This sums up to 27, each contributed Rs 9. In other words, manager kept 25, which he had to keep, bellboy kept 2, so 1 rs must have gone to them.the initial contribution to the manager is 3*8.333 and nt 3*9. so amount paid is 25+2(with bellboy) which gives 27. its the remaining 3 that goes to the guys. there is absolutely no loss anywhere, its just for tricking purpose.
