Direction (6 - 10) :- Two equations (I) and (II) are given in each question. On the basis of these equations. You have to decide the relation between 'x' and 'y' and give answer :-

1) If x > y

2) If x < y

3) If x >= y

4) If x <= y

5) If x = y or no relation can be decided between 'x' and 'y'.

6.

I. x = (-7)^2

II. y^2 - 46 y - 147 = 0

7.

I. 4x^2 - x - 3 = 0

II. 4y^2 - 16y + 15 = 0

8.

I. 2x^2 - 117x + 1701 = 0

II. y = Sqroot(992.25)

9.

I. 12x^2 - 41x + 35 = 0

II. 3y^2 - 17y - 28 = 0

10.

I. 4x - 3y = 16

II. 7x - 8y = 17

Answers:

1. 1

The four honours are King, Queen, Ace and, Jack. So no. of ways of choosing those 4 honours of same suit = 4

No. of ways of choosing 4 cards out of 52 is

52C4 = (52 * 51 * 50 * 49)/(4 * 3 * 2) = 270752

Probability = 4/270725

2. 1

Sum = Diff (100/10)^2 = 40 × 100 = Rs 4000

3. 2

Rajesh is always included. So in a group of 4 ladies and 6 gents only 2 are chosen.

Total no. of ways = 10C2 = (10 * 9)/ 2 = 45

When both are ladies,

No. of ways of selection is = 4C2 = 4*3/2 = 6

Required probability = 6/45 = 2/15

4. 2

Reqd population = (14500 - 12500)/10 * 5 + 12500 = 13500

5. 2

Outstanding amount in the beginning of 2nd year = 6000 (103/100) - 1200 = Rs. 4980

Outstanding amount in the beginning of 3rd year = Rs. 4980 (103/100) - 1200 = Rs. 3929.4

6. 3

7. 2

8. 4

9. 5

10. 1
