**Solution:**

S2. Ans.(d)

Sol. Quantity I:

x² – 15x + 56 = 0

x² – 8x – 7x + 56 = 0

x (x – 8) – 7 (x – 8) = 0

(x – 8) (x – 7) = 0

x = 8, 7

Quantity II:

y² – 12y + 35 = 0

y² – 7y – 5y + 35 = 0

y(y – 7 ) –5(y – 7) = 0

(y – 7) (y – 5) = 0

y = 5, 7

So, Quantity I ≥ Quantity II.

S3. Ans.(b)

Sol. Quantity I:

Let speed of boat in still water be ‘x km/hr’ and speed of stream be ‘y km/hr.’

Atq,

182/7 = x + y

x + y = 26 … (i)

And ((182 × 200/13 × 1/100))/7=x-y

x – y = 4 … (ii)

On solving (i) and (ii), we get:

x = 15 km/hr.

So, Quantity II > Quantity I.

S4. Ans.(b)

Sol. Quantity I:

44x² – 79x + 30 = 0

44x² – 55x – 24x + 30 = 0

11x (4x – 5) –6 (4x – 5) = 0

(4x – 5) (11x – 6) = 0

x = 5/4,6/11

Quantity II:

15y² – 59y + 56 = 0

15y² – 35y – 24y + 56 = 0

5y (3y – 7) –8 (3y – 7) = 0

(3y – 7) (5y – 8) = 0

y = 7/3 ,8/5

So, Quantity II > Quantity I.

S5. Ans.(b)

Sol. Quantity I:

Let cost price of the article be Rs. 100x.

So, marked price of the article = 100x × 160/100 = Rs. 160x

And selling price of the article = Rs. 1830

100x × 122/100 = 1830

x = 1830/122

x = 15

So, CP of article = 100x = Rs. 1500

And MP of article = 160x = Rs. 2400

Required difference = (2400 – 1830) – (1830 – 1500)

= 570 – 330 = Rs. 240

Quantity II:

16/100× 2100 = ?

?=336

So, Quantity II > Quantity I.

S8. Ans. (e)

Sol.

I. 6x^2-726=0

x^2-121=0

x=±11

II.y^2+y=56

y^2+y-56=0

y^2+8y-7y-56=0

(y-7)(y+8)=0

y=7,-8

So, no relation

S9. Ans. (b)

Sol.

I.2x+3y=7/12

II.3x+2y=2/3

On solving both equation

x=1/6 and y=1/12

So, x>y
