    Hi UKCAT Students,

    We hope your revision is going well. Often our students tell us that they do not find the explanations on question sites sufficient, and wish they had another explanation with more detail.

    So we have set up this Q & A board to help students out with questions!

    Our UKCAT Online Course has more content for you if you so wish: www.ukcatcourse.co.uk

    So for this one I think you have grasped the basic pattern which is you have two pairs of shapes, one being black the other being white.

    In Set A, the shapes have a horizontal line of symmetry (regardless of colour).

    In Set B, the shapes have a vertical line of symmetry. So judging the pattern based on this alone, you will be able to narrows down the options to A and C.

    If we look the top row of shapes in Set A, you will notice that the shape with an odd number of sides is white and the shape with an even number of sides is black. Take the first box in Set A, for example. In the top row, the pentagon with five sides is white and the cross with eight sides is black. We are looking at the top row of shapes because the boxes in Set A have a horizontal line of symmetry.

    Similarly, in Set B, you are looking at the shapes on the left because the shapes have a vertical line of symmetry. If the shape has an odd number of sides, the shape is now shaded in black and if the shape has an even number of sides, the shape is white. For example, the first box in Set B has a pentagon which is shaded in black and a cross which is white. So if we look at the answer you put down, A, the pentagon on the left has an odd number of sides so we should expect the pentagon to be white but instead it's black so it can't fit into Set A.

    Each box has a dot in the middle and contains a number of parallelograms. One shaded parallellogram below the line and there is one paraallelogram with a shaded dot above the line. When we go from box 1 to box 2, the shaded dot moves one position to the left and when it reaches the end, the next box will have one less parallelogram from the top and one more at the bottom.

    The same occurs with the parallelogram that is shaded. It moves one step to the right and once it reaches the end, a parallelogram is removed from the top and added to the bottom.

    We should get C, as the last box shown in the question displays the parallelogram that is shaded furthest to the right and therefore it has to go back to its original position where it is furthest to the left.

    Melissa is deciding whether to book a place for indoor or outdoor sky-diving for her summer holiday treat.
    Outdoor sky-diving is cancelled if the wind speeds are high. In the past, the Weather Office have predicted a 0.5 chance of strong winds in the summer months.

    The likelihood that outdoor sky-diving is fully booked is 40% and three in sixty for indoor sky-diving.

    Considering only the chance of strong winds and a space being available, should Melinda book outdoor sky-diving?
    • A No, the chance of high wind speeds is greater than the chance of normal wind speeds (3.02% of users chose this answer)
    • B No, a free space is more likely to be available for indoor sky-diving (85.28% of users chose this answer)
    • C Yes, the chance of cancellation due to strong winds is extremely low (Correct Answer 1.51% of users chose this answer)
    • D Yes, the indoor sky-diving is more likely to be fully booked (You incorrectly answered: D 10.19% of users chose this answer)


    • Answer ExplanationThe chance of strong winds is 0.5. Therefore, the probability of strong winds and no strong winds is the same.The chance that outdoor sky-diving is fully booked is 40%. The chance that indoor sky-diving is fully booked is 3 in 60 which equates to 5%.Therefore, the chance of a space being available is much higher with indoor sky-diving.

    I don't know if I am just being blind but how is C the right answer? Surely the chance of the outdoor sky diving being cancelled due to strong winds is high not low?

    1. We know that Kane spent £10 more than Nicole, but he didnt spend the most so it must be £40.
    2. Therefore, Nicole must have spent £30
    3. Now we only have the £65 and £75 to deal with
    4. However, we know that Nancy spent less than Sandra
    5. Therefore, Nancy spent £65 and Sandra must have spent the £75
    6. Therefore the answer is D

    What activities the people did was basically there just as a distraction

    Why is the following method wrong:

    1) Volume of biscuit D, 3.5 x 3x 0.5x 0.7 (thickness) = 3.675 cm3
    2) Because 24% of it falls off 76% is left, therefore, 2.793 should be the remaining volume?

    Am i missing something fundamental?
    Thanks
