If n = 4; $\frac{n}{m}$ will be greater than $\frac{1}{5}$ if m is less than 20. Similarly at n = 4; $\frac{n}{m}$ will be lesser than $\frac{1}{2}$ if m is greater than 8. So, for n = 4; 8 ≤ m ≤ 20. m can only take one of the values in {5, 6, 7, 8, 9} Hence m = 9. m - 2n = 9 - 2$4) = 9 - 8 = 1.

The question is "Let m and n be natural numbers such that n is even and 0.2 < $$frac{m}{20}$, $\frac{n}{m}$, $\frac{n}{11}$ < 0.5. Then m - 2n equals" ##### Hence, the answer is, "1" ###### Best CAT Online Coaching Try upto 40 hours for free Learn from the best! ###### Prepare for CAT 2023 with 2IIM's Daily Preparation Schedule ###### Know all about CAT Exam Syllabus and what to expect in CAT ###### Already have an Account? ###### CAT Coaching in ChennaiCAT 2023 Classroom Batches Starting Now! @Gopalapuram ###### Best CAT Coaching in Chennai Introductory offer of 5000/- Attend a Demo Class ###### Best Indore IPM & Rohtak IPM CoachingSignup and sample 9 full classes for free.
