What's the best way to tackle GMAT Analytical Writing Assesment?
Remember that GMAT AWA is more of an argument analysis than an essay-writing question. Your proficiency in grammar and your adroitness with vocabulary, while good, will not play a great role in fetching you a 6 on 6 in GMAT AWA. Your argument is analyzed by a programmed computer first and then by a person. The best way, in my opinion, to tackle this section is to stick to the below format (it helped me get a 6 on 6 in my GMAT): 1st Paragraph - Restate the crux of the argument in simple terms and clearly specify if you are for or against the presented argument. 2nd Paragraph - Write 'Firstly'......followed by your strongest argument to support or counter the question statement. 3rd Paragraph - Write 'Secondly'.....followed by your second logical argument 4th Paragraph - Write 'Finally' ....followed by your final argument 5th Paragraph - Write 'To conclude/To Summarize'....Follow it by a one-line summary of the 3 points you have mentioned above. State that 'On the pretext of the above-mentioned points'....followed by your conclusion (whether you support or counter the question stem). Also, state a way or two to improve or strengthen the argument or how can the veracity of the stated argument be verified. That's it! Enjoy your 6!
Subject: C Programming
What will happen if in a C program you assign a value to an array element whose subscript exceeds the size of the array?
While modern compilers do take care of this case, in older compilers, the index of the array size is exceeded, thereby crashing the program.
How do you visualize current?
Current is a reverse flow of electrons and can be very easily visualized with the help of an analogy. Imagine the transfer of heat. Heat is a flow of energy from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature (the temperature gradient). Heat continues to flow between tow bodies unless their temperatures become equal. Similar is the flow of electricity. Instead of a difference of temperatures and the creation of a consequent temperature gradient, in this case, there is a difference in potentials (potential gradient). Current flows across the potential gradient as long as the potentials on both the fronts are equalized.
