 Onionknight, you were correct of about the square matrix of matrix (Q.5). Rest of the answers are same. Amit sir can you please help in Q.2 of ISI PEB 2015. Should we take bribe as the price in demand equation or divide consumers' surplus by the quantity to get bribe/connection.

## Re: ISI 2015 PEA Answer Key

 Q1.) In the short run, K is fixed as K* so the only decision the firm needs to make is how much labour to employ. Whatever labour the firm employs, the production function is Y= L^0.25 * K^0.25 and since capital is fixed as K*, L^0.25 = Y/K^0.25 which means L= Y^4/K. Now cost in the short run is wage rate times labour which is 10*Y^4/K. In the long run, to maximize profits, set marginal derivative of profit with respect to labour=0, which gives 0.25*p*L^-0.25*K^0.25 = 10 Similarly, set marginal derivative of profit with respect to capital =0 0.25*p*K^-0.25*L^0.25 = 10 Divide the two equations to get K=L Now K^0.25 * L^0.25 = Y, L and K are equal so L=K= Y^2 cost= w*L+r*K = 20*Y^2

 In reply to this post by deepti This image shows the budget set of the consumers and also their allotments and their final chosen sets : http://s28.postimg.org/cnt5m6kfx/20150503_203428.jpg. Yes, they can have the same preferences since there is nothing that suggests otherwise. For instance, both of them could have their bliss point for consumption of y at y=15 and spend all the money left on x.

## Re: ISI 2015 PEA Answer Key

 For q.7 put x+2y = a and x-2y = b solve these simultaneous equations to get x and y in terms of a and b. This will give you f(a,b) Q.21 P(A intersection B) may be zero or non-zero => P(A|B) may be zero or non-zero. If it is zero, it is definitely < P(A) because P(A) is non-zero ALWAYS. Similar argument can be made for P(A|B) P(A|B) = P(A) - P(A|B') which obviously is =

 In reply to this post by Amit Goyal A matrix is said to be zero matrix or null matrix if all its elements are zero. Hence, answer of 5 should be a. Copied and pasted above line from NCERT.

 hi dhruv, the correct answer is d only. The ques is asking about the square of this matrix not the given matrix.

 Yeah, you are right. Also, have you tried ISI PEB 2015, compared to previous sample papers, I found it really hard.

 It was but then again, solving 2-3 questions *correctly* was good enough to get you an interview call last year, from what I've heard (I didn't give the test myself).

 In reply to this post by dhruv Arey I filed an RTI regarding the cut offs. The cut off for 2014 PEB was 31 and PEA 83. As rightly said by onion , if the paper is tough cut off will go down for sure.
