TESTfunda - CAT Question of the Day 14-Jan-10

Buzz It
 If you're having trouble viewing this email, see the Question of the Day and Tip of the Day on the Web.

CAT Question of the Day
The number of positive integers n such that (n6 + 206) is divisible by (n2 + 2) is:
OPTIONS
 
 1)14
 2)6
 3)8
 4)4
 5)None of these
Tip of the Day
When articulating a stand on any topic, be aware of the points that may be used by people taking an opposing stand. Think of how to rebut those points.
Last year's Question of the day (14-Jan-09)
The following question has a paragraph from which the last sentence has been deleted. From the given options, choose the one that completes the paragraph in the most appropriate way.

Technocrats can of course reliably make an electricity plant work better. The goal is simple: to produce electricity at as low a price as possible. This is mostly a matter of engineering, not politics. Economic policies are usually not technocratic in this sense. They involve tradeoffs: some may lead to higher inflation but lower unemployment; some help investors, others workers. Economists call policies where no one can be made better off without making someone else worse off Pareto efficient. _____________
OPTIONS
 
 1)In reality, few policies are Pareto efficient.
 2)If no one was made worse off by choosing one policy, the policy would indeed be purely "technical."
 3)Economic policies cannot be left to technocrats.
 4)Banking "reform," is an example:  it soon required government bail-outs, leaving a few people much richer, but the country much poorer.
 5)Sometimes there are policies that can promote both growth and equality, and the job of good economists is to search for them.
