ANSWERS

1.D

2. D

Let the three integers be x, x + 2 and x + 4.

Then, 3x = 2(x + 4) + 3 x = 11.

Third integer = x + 4 = 15.

3.B

Let the ten’s digit be x and unit’s digit be y.

Then, (10x + y) – (10y + x) = 36

9(x – y) = 36

x – y = 4

4.B

5.B

6.D

Let the ten’s digit be x and unit’s digit be y.

Then, x + y = 15 and x – y = 3 or y – x = 3.

x + y = 15 and x – y = 3, we get: x = 9, y = 6.

x + y = 15 and y – x = 3, we get: x = 6, y = 9.

number is either 96 or 69.

the number cannot be determined.

7.A

8.D

Let the ten’s digit be x and unit’s digit be y.

number = 10x + y.

Number obtained by interchanging the digits = 10y + x.

(10x + y) + (10y + x) = 11(x + y), which is divisible by 11.

9.A

10.A

Let the number be x.

Then, x + 17 = 60/X

x^2 + 17x – 60 = 0

(x + 20)(x – 3) = 0

x = 3.
