Answers:-
1.D
Since each desired number is divisible by 5, so we must have 5 at the unit place. So, there is 1 way of doing it.
The tens place can now be filled by any of the remaining 5 digits (2, 3, 6, 7, 9). So, there are 5 ways of filling the tens place.
The hundreds place can now be filled by any of the remaining 4 digits. So, there are 4 ways of filling it.
Required number of numbers = (1 x 5 x 4) = 20.

2.B

3.B
If only one of the boxes has a green ball, it can be any of the 6 boxes. So, this can be achieved in 6 ways.
If two of the boxes have green balls and then there are 5 consecutive sets of 2 boxes. 12, 23, 34, 45, 56.
Similarly, if 3 of the boxes have green balls, there will be 4 options.
If 4 boxes have green balls, there will be 3 options.
If 5 boxes have green balls, then there will be 2 options.
If all 6 boxes have green balls, then there will be just 1 options.
Total number of options = 6 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 21.

4.A
There are seven positions to be filled.
The first position can be filled using any of the 7 letters contained in PROBLEM.
The second position can be filled by the remaining 6 letters as the letters should not repeat.
The third position can be filled by the remaining 5 letters only and so on.
758
Therefore, the total number of ways of rearranging the 7 letter word = 7*6*5*4*3*2*1 = 7! Ways.

5.D
The probability that he will not hit the target in one shot = 1 – 1/4 = 3/4
Therefore, the probability that he will not hit the target in all the four shots =81/256

Hence, the probability that he will hit the target at least in one of the four shots = 1 – 81/256
= 175/256 .

6.C
If he picks any of the three socks invariably any two of them should match. Hence the probability is 1.

7.A

8.D
We may have (3 men and 2 women) or (4 men and 1 woman) or (5 men only).
Required number of ways = (7C3 x 6C2) + (7C4 x 6C1) + (7C5)
=756

9.C
We may have(1 black and 2 non-black) or (2 black and 1 non-black) or (3 black).
Required number of ways = (3C1 x 6C2) + (3C2 x 6C1) + (3C3)
=64

10.A
Required number of ways = (7C5 x 3C2) = (7C2 x 3C1)
=63

11.A
Total number of balls = (2 + 3 + 2) = 7.
Let S be the sample space.
Then, n(S)= Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of 7
= 7C2 `
=(7 x 6)/(2 x 1)
= 21.
Let E = Event of drawing 2 balls, none of which is blue.
n(E)= Number of ways of drawing 2 balls out of (2 + 3) balls.
= 5C2
=(5 x 4)/(2 x 1)
= 10.
P(E) =n(E)/n(S=10/.21

12.A
Total number of balls = (8 + 7 + 6) = 21.
Let E= event that the ball drawn is neither red nor green
= event that the ball drawn is blue.
n(E) = 7.
P(E) =n(E)/n(S)=7/21=1/3.

13.B
In a simultaneous throw of two dice, we have n(S) = (6 x 6) = 36.
Then, E = {(1, 2), (1, 4), (1, 6), (2, 1), (2, 2), (2, 3), (2, 4), (2, 5), (2, 6), (3, 2), (3, 4),
(3, 6), (4, 1), (4, 2), (4, 3), (4, 4), (4, 5), (4, 6), (5, 2), (5, 4), (5, 6), (6, 1),
(6, 2), (6, 3), (6, 4), (6, 5), (6, 6)}
n(E) = 27.
P(E) =n(E)/n(S)=27/36=3/4

14.C
P (getting a prize) = 10/(10 + 25)=10/35 =2/7 .
