5) 623

1. 3;

I. x^2 – 26x + 169 = 0

(x – 13)^2 = 0

x = 13

II. y^2 – 28y + 196 = 0

(y – 14)^2 = 0

y = 14

x < y

2. 2;

I. 2x^2 + 12x – 6x – 36 = 0

2x (x + 6) –6 (x + 6) = 0

(x + 6) (2x – 6) = 0

x = –6, 3

II. 2y^2 + 12y + 13y + 78 = 0

2y (y + 6) + 13 (y + 6) = 0

(y + 6 ) (2y + 13) = 0

y = –6, -13/2

x > y

3. 5;

I. 7x^2 + 13x + 91x + 169 = 0

(x + 13) (7x + 13) = 0

x = – 13, -13/7

II. y^2 + 13y – 3y – 39 = 0

(y – 3) (y + 13) = 0

y = 3, – 13

Relationship between x and y cannot be established.

4. 5;

I. x^2 – 8x + 2x – 16 = 0

(x + 2) (x – 8) = 0

x = – 2, 8

II. 3y^2 + 22y + 24 = 0

3y 2 + 4y + 18y + 24 = 0

(y + 6) (3y + 4) = 0

y = –6, -4/3

Relationship between x and y cannot be established.

5. 1;

From A, we get,

P = 100*SI/R*T = Rs. 1200

5. 5;

P + Q + R + S = 86

From A, P + Q + S = 24 × 3 = 72 R = 86 – 72 = 14

From B, R + S = 28 × 2 = 56

We cannot get Q’s present age from both statements.

6. 2;

From statement B, work done by Q = 18 × 4/3 = 24 days.

7. 2;

Out of 14 players, let us element 2 particular player

which are excluded. Now, there are 12 players for selection of these 12, three have to be included in team always. Thus remaining players are (12 – 3) = 9 and the required players for team (10 – 3) = 7. Now,

selection cannot be done in

9C7 ways.

9C7 = 9!/7!2! = 36 ways.

8. 1;

Let the present age of mother and daughter be 7x and 3x year.

7x – 4/3x – 4 = 5/2

14x – 8 = 15x – 20

x = 12

Mother’s age five years from now = 12 × 7 + 5

= 84 + 5 = 89 year

9. 5;

In Set A, 9x + 2(1 + 2 + ..... + 8) = 657

9x + 8*9*2/2 = = 657

9x + 36 × 2 = 657

x = 65

lowest number of another set = 65 + 18 = 83

Sum of seven consecutive number of another set

= 7x + (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6) × 2

= 7x + 6*7*2/2

= 7x + 21 = 83 × 7 + 42 = 623

10. 4;

First arrange the 7 boys in a row in 7P7 = 7! ways.

Then, there are 8 gaps between them. Now 5 girls can be

arranged in 8 gaps in P5

8 ways.

Required number of ways of arrangement = 7! × 8P5 = 7 ! * 8 !/5!

= 8! × 7 × 6 = 42 × 8 !
