 There are three bags, one contains only red marbles, one contains only green marbles and the last contains both red and green. You do not know how many marbles are in each bag. Each of the bags is incorrectly labelled. How many times do you have to draw to figure out the correct labels of each bag?5 AnswersOne drawtwo draws maxDraw one from each bag first (i.e. three in total) - two will be of the same colour. You could get red, green and green, for example. In that case, the bag you drew the red from is red only. Now you need to work out which of the other 2 bags is green only and which is mixed. So then you need to draw one from each of the 2 bags until you find a red - the one you draw the red from is the mixed bag. Therefore, the total number of draws you would need is unknown.Show more responsesYou will need to draw one from each bag initially and then again one more time to confirm if each bag has the same colour marble in it as you may pick a red marble from a certain bag but it could be the one with mixed marbles in it1 Draw. Solution: If all bags are labelled incorrectly, there's only two possibilities: (Using R=Red Bag, G=Green Bag, M=Mixed Bag) Actual Order: R G M Possible Labels: G M R or M R G (All other labelling makes one bag correctly labelled, can't be) Draw 1 marble from the bag labelled "M". If it's green, you've drawn from the green bag. If it's red, you've drawn from the red bag. Looking at the two possible labelling's, you can identify the other 2 bags.

 I can't remember the questions exactly but they were related to your personal skills and experiences and how these link to DLG and they values.3 AnswersHey I did an assessment centre almost two weeks ago now and haven't heard anything yet - do you know if unsuccessful applicants are also told by phone? :) thanks!Hey, remain patient as it took a couple of weeks for me to hear back. I was also told that they were still in the process of letting applicants know the outcome and that they still had over half the people to inform. I'm sure you will be contacted one way or another so fingers crossed!Hi there, I had my assessment centre later than you on the 18th of August and have still not heard anything. Any idea if this is good or bad and when I should expect to hear back? Thanks in advance

 Q: Assume you want to get from city A to city B. There are three roads you can choose uniformly from. However only one road leads actually to city B, which takes 2 hours. The other two roads end up in city A again and both are 1 hour long. Given that you don't know which road you took, If you return to city A (i.e. you have to choose uniformly a road again), what is the expected time to get to city B?2 Answers2.5 hours (if expected time is the same as expected value here)? If it's equally probable to choose right (2 hour) or wrong (1 hour) and then, finally, right (2 hour) route (i.e. total 3 hours), then the expected time is the mean (2+3)/2 = 2.5 hoursX=1/3*2+2/3*(X+1) → X=4h

 Let’s play a game of Russian roulette. You are tied to your chair and can’t get up. Here’s a gun. Here’s the cylinder of the gun, six chambers, all empty. Now watch me as I put two bullets in the gun, adjacent to each other. I close the cylinder and spin it. I put a gun to your head and pull the trigger. Click. Lucky you! Now I’m going to pull the trigger one more time. Which would you prefer, that I spin the cylinder first, or that I just pull the trigger?2 AnswersIts better not to spin.Better to spin again since probability of hitting would decrease to 2/6 from 2/5.
