1.e
HCF is always a factor of LCM. ie., HCF always divides LCM perfectly.

2.d
The difference of required numbers must be 12 and every number must be divisible by 12. Therefore, they are 84, 96.

3. b
The number = HCF×LCMGiven number=16×16032=80

4.A
Let the numbers be a, 2a and 3a.
Then, their HCF = a  so a=12
The numbers are 12,24,36

5.d
LCM of 2,4,6, 8,10 and 12 is 120. So, the bells will toll simultaneously after 120 seconds.
i.e.2 minutes. In 30 minutes, they (302+1) toll times ie.16 times.

6.  C
The required number can be find out by following way.
1×2×3×4=24

7.(A)
The change of interval=(LCM of 48,72,108)sec.=432. So, for every 432 seconds i.e.7 min. 12 sec. the lights will change.  So add 7 min.12 sec.to 8:20:00 Hrs.i.e.8:27:12 Hrs.

8. A
The needed number is HCF of (1657-6) and (2037-5)=HCF of 1651 & 2032=127.

9.D
The prime numbers are 2,3,5,17 in the expression.  The expression can be written as (23)20×(3×5)24×(17)15⇒260×324×524×1715
So number of prime factors are 4. i.e., 2, 3, 5, 17

10.C
Let the numbers are ah, bh respectively.  Here h is HCF of two numbers.  (obviously a, b are coprimes i.e., HCF (a, b) = 1)
Given that HCF = h = 44 and LCM = abh = 264
Dividing LCM by HCF we get ab = 6.
ab can be written as 1 x 6, 2 x 3, 3 x 2, 6 x 1.
But given that the first number is divisible by 3. So only two options possible for A. 3 x 44, 6 x 44. So option C is correct

11. B
LCM of 9,11,13 is 1287. Dividing 1294 with 1287, the remainder will be 7, to get remainder 6, 1 is to be deducted from 1294 so that 1293 when divided by 9,11,13 leaves 6 as remainder.

12. b
LCM = 5 × 3 × 22 = 60
To make this number as a perfect square, we have to multiply this number by 5 × 3
The number is 60 × 15= 900

13.D
LCM = 2×2×2×3×5=23×3×5
But the least perfect square is = 23×3×5×(2×3×5)=24×32×52=3600  as the perfect squares have their powers even.

14. A
The maximum possible length = (HCF of 42, 49, 63) = 7

15. A

The needed number = HCF of 1344, 1856 and 2752=64
