Directions (6-10): In each of these questions, two equations (I) and (II) are given. Solve both the equations and mark the correct option:

Q6. I. 15x² + 11x + 2 = 0
II. 24y² + 11y + 1 = 0
if x>y
if x≥y
if x<y
if x≤y
if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.
Solution:
I. 15x² + 5x + 6x + 2 = 0
5x (3x + 1) + 2 (3x + 1) = 0
(5x + 2) (3x + 1) = 0
x = -2/5, -1/3
II. 24y² + 8y + 3y + 1 = 0
8y (3y +1) + 1 (3y + 1) = 0
(8y + 1) (3y + 1) = 0
y = -1/3, -1/8
⇒ x ≤ y

Q7. I. x² – 30x + 221 = 0
II. y² – 17y + 60 = 0
if x>y
if x≥y
if x<y
if x≤y
if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.
Solution:
I. x² – 13x – 17x + 221 = 0
x (x – 13) – 17 (x – 13) = 0
(x – 17) (x – 13) = 0
x = 13, 17
II. y² – 12y – 5y + 60 = 0
y (y – 12) – 5 (y – 12) = 0
(y – 5) (y – 12) = 0
y = 5, 12
⇒ x > y

Q8. I. x² + 6x + 8 = 0
II. 8y² + 22y + 15 = 0
if x>y
if x≥y
if x<y
if x ≤y
if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.
Solution:
I. x² + 6x + 8 = 0
x² + 2x + 4x + 8 = 0
x (x + 2) + 4 (x + 2) = 0
(x + 4) (x + 2) = 0
x = –2, –4
II. 8y² + 22y + 15 = 0
8y² + 10y + 12y + 15 = 0
2y (4y + 5) +3(4y + 5) = 0
(2y + 3) (4y + 5) = 0
y=(-3)/2,-5/4
⇒ x < y

Q9. I. x² – 20x + 96 = 0
II. y² – 15y + 56 = 0
if x>y
if x≥y
if x<y
if x ≤y
if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.
Solution:
I. x² – 20x + 96 = 0
x² – 8x – 12x + 96 = 0
x (x – 8) – 12 (x – 8) = 0
(x – 12) (x – 8) = 0
x = 12, 8
II. y² – 15y + 56 = 0
y² – 7y – 8y + 56 = 0
(y – 7) (y – 8) = 0
y = 7, 8
⇒ x ≥ y

Q10. I. x² + 2x – 35 = 0
II. y² + 3y – 10 = 0
if x>y
if x≥y
if x<y
if x ≤y
if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.
Solution:
I. x² + 2x – 35 = 0
x² + 7x – 5x – 35 = 0
x (x + 7) – 5 (x + 7) = 0
(x – 5) (x + 7) = 0
x = 5, –7
II. y² + 3y – 10 = 0
y² + 5y – 2y– 10 = 0
(y + 5) (y – 2) = 0
y= –5, 2
⇒ no relation can be established between x and y

Directions (11-15): What comes at the place of question mark in the following number series?

Q11. 27, 1358, 1277, 1620, ? , 1622
1546
1536
1596
1598
1595
Solution:
pattern is
27+11³=1358
1358-9²=1277
1277+7³=1620
1620-5²=1595
1595+3³=1622
So, ?=1620 – 5² = 1595

Q12. 48, 72, 180, 810, ?, 69862.5
6078
6075
6077
6080
6085
Solution:
Pattern is –
48×1.5=72
72×2.5=180
180×4.5=810
810×7.5=6075
So,?= 810 × 7.5 = 6075
