Common Admission Test (CAT) is a national level entrance exam for admission to management programmes at 20 IIMs and more than 100 B-schools, Every year it’s scheduled in December. CAt Test entry exam is divided into three sections namely, Quantitative Aptitude (QA), Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning (DILR) and Verbal and Reading Comprehension (VRC). Pattern, Syllabus of CAT test slightly changed, However, the only difference is that this year the number of sectional questions are not pre-determined, but it is also likely to follow last year’s pattern. So if you want to check your prepare about recent exam then must take quiz before reach in papers.

Question 24 of 25

25. Suppose, the seed of any positive integers n is defined as follows:
seed(n) = n, if n < 10
= seed(s(n)), otherwise,
where s(n) indicates the sum of digits of n.
For example,
seed(7) = 7, seed(248) = seed(2 + 4 + 8) = seed(14) = seed(1 + 4) = seed(5) = 5 etc.
How many positive integers n, such that n < 500; will have seed(n) = 9?
