Q1. If $\frac{\mathrm{x}}{\mathrm{y}}=\frac{3}{5}$ then the value of is $\frac{\mathrm{x}-\mathrm{y}}{\mathrm{x}+\mathrm{y}}$

(a) $-\frac{1}{4}$

(b) $\frac{1}{4}$

(c) $-\frac{1}{6}$

(d) -6

**Solution:**$\frac{\mathrm{x}}{\mathrm{y}}=\frac{3}{5}$

Using Dividendo and Componendo

$\Longrightarrow \frac{\mathrm{x}-\mathrm{y}}{\mathrm{x}=\mathrm{y}}=\frac{3-5}{3+5}=-\frac{1}{4}\,\,$

Q2. If x is negative real number, then

(a) |xl = x

(b) | x| = –x

(c) | x| = $\frac{1}{\mathrm{x}}$

(d) |x| = $-\frac{1}{\mathrm{x}}$

**Solution:**Clearly, defined absolute value i.e | x| = – x

Q3. What is the maximum value of m, if the number N = 35 x 45 x 55 x 60 x 124 x 75 is divisible by 5^{m}?

(a) 4

(b) 5

(c) 6

(d) 7

**Solution:**N = 35 x 45 x 55 x 60 x 124 x 75

= 3 × 5 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5 × 11 × 5 × 12 × 124 × 5 × 5 × 3

= 5^{6} × 3^{4} × 11 × 12 × 124

Since N is is divisible by 5^{m}

∴ 5^{m} = 5^{6} or m = 6

Q4. A student was asked to multiply a number by 25. He instead multiplied the number by 52 and got the answer 324 more than the correct answer. The number to be multiplied was

(a) 12

(b) 15

(c) 25

(d) 32

**Solution:**Let the number = x

52x – 25x = 324

⇒ 27x = 324

⇒x = 12

Q5. Consider the following statements:

I. No integer of the form 4k + 3, where k is an integer, can be expressed as the sum of two squares. II. The Square of an odd integer can express in the form 8k +1, where k is an integer.

Which of the statement (s) given above is/ are correct?

(a) Only I

(b) Only II

(c) Both I and II

(d) Neither I nor II

**Solution:**I. f(k) = 4k+3

For k=1, f(k) = 7; for k=2, f(k) = 11; for k=3, f(k) = 15

Values of f(k) cannot be expressed as sum of two squares for k = 1, 2, 3, …

f(k) = 8k+1

For k=1, f(k) = 9= 3^{2}; for k=2, f(k) = 17; for k=3, f(k) = 25 = 5^{2}

for k=4, f(k) = 33; for k=5, f(k) = 41

Values of f(k) are square of an odd integer only for some values of k

So, the only statement I is correct

(d) 2014

**Solution:**$\sqrt{\left( 2013 \right) ^2+2013+2014}$

= $\sqrt{\left( 2013 \right) ^2+2.2013.1+1}$

= $\sqrt{\left( 2013+1 \right) ^2}$

= 2014

**Solution:**$\frac{\left( 0.5 \right) ^4-\left( 0.4 \right) ^4}{\left( 0.5 \right) ^2+\left( 0.4 \right) ^2}$

= $\frac{\left( \left( 0.5 \right) ^2+\left( 0.4 \right) ^2 \right) .\left( \left( 0.5 \right) ^2-\left( 0.4 \right) ^2 \right)}{\left( \left( 0.5 \right) ^2+\left( 0.4 \right) ^2 \right)}$

= (0.5 + 0.4) (0.5 – 0.4) = 0.09

(a) 108°

(b) 135°

(c) 72°

(d) 120°

**Solution:**sum of all interior angles of a regular convex polygon = (2n – 4)×90°

∴ (2n – 4)×90 = 1080

⇒ 2n – 4 = 12

⇒2n = 16

⇒ n = 8

∴ each interior angles of a regular convex polygon = $\frac{1080\degree}{8}=135\degree$

Q10. The mean of range, mode and median of the data 4, 3, 2, 2, 7, 2, 2, 0, 3, 4, 4 is

(a) 4

(b) 3

(c) 5

(d) 2

**Solution:**Arranging the given data in a table with their frequency:

Data | Frequency |

0 2 3 4 7 | 1 4 2 3 1 |

From the table Range = 7 – 0 = 7

Mode = 2 ( frequency 4)

Median = 3

∴ mean of range, mode and median = $\frac{7 +\,\,2 +3}{3}=4$

Q12. In a quadrilateral ABCD, ∠D = 60° and ∠C = 100 °. The bisectors of ∠A and ∠B meet at point P. The measures of ∠APB is

(a) 80°

(b) 70°

(c) 100°

(d) 60°

**Solution:**

Let ∠A = 2x and ∠B = 2y

∴ 60° + 100° + 2x + 2y = 360 ( sum of all interior angle of quadilateral is 360°)

or x + y = 100

From Δ APB, x + y + ∠APB = 180° ( sum of all interior angle of traiangle is 180°)

Or, APB = 180 – 100 (since, x + y = 100°)

∠APB = 80°

Q13. A train T leaves a place P at 5:00 a.m. and reaches another place Q at 9:00 a.m. another train T2 leaves place Q at 7:00 a.m. and reaches place P at 10:30 a.m. The time at which the two trains cross each other is

(a) 8:26 a.m.

(b) 7:56 a.m.

(c) 8:15 a.m.

(d) 8:00 a.m.

**Solution:**Let Distance between P and Q = x km. And the train meet each other t hour after 7:00 am

Speed of first train x/4 km/hr and distance coveer when they meet = $\frac{\left( 2+\mathrm{t} \right) \mathrm{x}}{4}$ km

Speed of 2^{nd} train = $\frac{2\mathrm{x}}{7}$ km/hr and distance coveer when they meet = $\frac{2\mathrm{xt}}{7}$

Now, $\frac{\left( 2+\mathrm{t} \right) \mathrm{x}}{4}+\frac{2\mathrm{xt}}{7}\,\,=\mathrm{x}$

⇒ 14 + 7t + 8t = 28

⇒ 15t = 14

⇒ t = 14/15 hr = 56 min

∴ They meet each other at 7:56 am

Q15. If after 24

(a) 70000

(b) 90000

(c) 80000

(d) 89000

**Solution:**the total output of the coal-mine = 100x quintals

Wastage = 24x and use full output = 76

76x = 68400

⇒ x = 900

∴ the total output of the coal-mine = 90000 quintals

Q16. A man purchased a watch for 400 and sold it at a gain of 20

(a) 300

(b) 320

(c) 440

(d) 500

**Solution:**Let selling price = 100x

Then, 400 + 20x = 100x

⇒ 80x = 400

⇒x = 5

∴ Selling price = 500
