(a) 303000000
(b) 30300000
(c) 3030000
(d) 3030000000
Answer: (b) 30300000 Solution: 1 million = 1000000 ∴ 30.3 million = 30.3 × 1000000 = 30300000 |
Q33. If a^{3} =1+7, 3^{3} = 1 +7+ b and 4^{3} = 1+7+c, where a, b and c are different positive integers, then the value of a + b + c is
(a) 58
(b) 68
(c) 77
(d) 79
Answer: (c) 77 Solution: a^{3} =1+7 = 8 ⇒ a = 2 3^{3} = 1 +7+ b ⇒ b = 27 – 8 = 19 4^{3} = 1+7+c ⇒ c = 64 – 8 = 56 ∴ a + b + c = 2 + 19 + 56 = 77 |
Q34. We call a number perfect if it is the sum of all its positive divisors, except itself. For example, 28 is a perfect number because 28 = 1+2+ 4+ 7+ 14.
Which of the following numbers is a perfect number?
(a) 13
(b) 10
(c) 9
(d) 6
Answer: (d) 6 Solution: factor 6 are 1, 2, and 3 Now 1 + 2 + 3 = 6 ∴ 6 is a perfect number |
Q35. Which of the following numbers is a perfect square?
(a) 548543213
(b) 548543215
(c) 548543251
(d) 548543241
Answer: (d) 548543241 Solution: For a perfect square, the unit digit cannot be 2, 3, 7, and 8. So option (a) is eliminated. If the unit digit of a perfect square is 5 then its ten-digit must be 2. So option (b) is eliminated. If the unit digit of a perfect square is 1 then its ten-digit must be even. So option (c) is eliminated. So option (d) is correct |

(a) 2
(b) 4
(c) 8
(d) 16
Answer: (c) 8 Solution: $\frac{3^{502}-3^{500}+16}{3^{500}+2}$ = $\frac{9.3^{500}-3^{500}+16}{3^{500}+2}$ = $\frac{9.3^{500}-3^{500}+16}{3^{500}+2}$ =$\frac{3^{500}\left( 9-1 \right) +16}{3^{500}+2}$ =$\frac{3^{500}\times 8+16}{3^{500}+2}$ =$\frac{8\left( 3^{500}+2 \right)}{3^{500}+2}$ = 8 |

(a) 11
(b) 8
(c) 6
(d) 5
Answer: (b) 8 Solution: 800880 = 8 x 10^{x} +8 x 10^{y} + 8 x 10^{z} ⇒ 8(10^{x} + 10^{y} + 10^{z}) = 800880 ⇒ (10^{x} + 10^{y} + 10^{z}) = 100110 = 100000 + 100 + 10 = 10^{5} + 10^{3} + 10^{1} ∴ x = 5, y = 2, z = 1 ∴ x + y +z = 5 + 2 + 1 =8 |

(a) 10
(b) 12
(c) 14
(d) 15
Answer: (b) 12 Solution: We know that V + F = E + 2, where V = Number of vertices, F = Number of faces and E = Number of edges. ∴ E = 6 + 8 – 2 = 12 |
Q44. If
The sum of the digits a and b is
(a) 15
(b) 14
(c) 13
(d) 12
Answer: (b) 14 Solution: digit to the left of b is 8 Therefore a≥5 If a = 5 then b = 9 ⇒ a + b = 14 If a = 6 then b = 8 ⇒ a + b = 14 If a = 7 then b = 7 ⇒ a + b = 14 If a = 8 then b = 6 ⇒ a + b = 14 If a = 9 then b = 5 ⇒ a + b = 14 |
Q45. Forty-two cubes each of side 1 cm are glued together to form a solid cuboids. If the perimeter of the base of the cuboids is 18 cm, then its height, in cm, is
(a) 1
(b) 2
(c) 3
(d) 4
Answer: (c) 3 Solution: Let length = l, breadth = b, and height = h lbh = 42 and 2(l + b) = 18 ⇒ l + b = 9 Now l and b such that their sum is 9 and product is a factor of 42 Factor of 42 are 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 14 3 + 6 = 9 but 18 is not factor of 42 2 +7 = 9 and 14 is factor of 42 So l and b are 7 and 2 ∴ lbh = 42 ⇒ h 42/14 = 3 |
