Question:

20 divided by a positive integer x leads to a remainder of x-2. x could be one of the following: a) 7 b) 8 c) 19 d) 10 e) 11 which one and why?

Answer:

the fact that the remainder is x-2 tells us that k is a factor not of 20, but of 2 more than 20, that is 22. the only choice that is a factor of 22 is 11 (option e) another way is to trial & error, yet the key-point is that the student has to learn how to go as fast as possible when sitting the GMAT (reasoning as above)

Question:

Imagine you are a successful entrepreneur with a fully owned company (all-equity financed). An angel investor comes in and wants to buy your company. You have 2 options: 1) selling 50% of your company for €10m 2) accepting a €10m equity injection in your company in exchange for 50% of it. Do you have a preference or is it indifferent?

Answer:

You should always maximise your value, therefore you should peek the highest implicit value of your company. Enterprise value in 1) €20m - you sell 50% for €10m indeed Enterprise value in 2) is €10m - the post-money valuation of the company is 10+10=20 (in words, only after the equity injection the company is valued €20m and the angel investor will have 50% of this post-money EV) then with option 1) you are better off

Subject: Macroeconomics

Question:

Imagine you know that inflation will be higher than expected in the following years. How would you behave to benefit from this information?

Answer:

Firstly, inflation penalises lenders and benefits borrowers. Therefore, this is the ideal moment to buy a house with a fixed-rate mortgage. You, as a borrower, will have a lower real cost of debt in the presence of higher than expected inflation. Secondly, it will depreciate bonds. Then, you should short-sell bonds such as US T-Bills. This depreciation comes from the foundational characteristics of the bond market - bonds pay a rate which is strongly linked to inflation rates. Thirdly, your currency will lose value relative to other currencies. Therefore, an easy profit could be made by buying/selling currency pairs. (let's say you are American, then you should short-sell USD/EUR or buy EUR/USD)
