__SOLUTIONS__S1. Ans.(b)

Sol.

The pattern is

S2. Ans.(c)

Sol.

Series is

3.Ans (a)

Sol.

3³ – 3 = 27 – 3 = 24

5³ – 3 = 125 – 3 = 122

7³ – 3 = 343 – 3 = 340

9³ – 3 = 729 – 3 = 726

11³ – 3 = 1331 – 3 = 1328

13³ – 3 = 2197 – 3 = 2194

S4. Ans.(d)

Sol.

Series is

2009 – 11 × 9 = 2009 – 99 = 1910

1910 – 11 × 7 = 1910 – 77 = 1833

1833 – 11 × 5 = 1833 – 55 = 1778

1778 – 11 × 3 = 1778 – 33 = 1745

1745 – 11 × 1 = 1745 – 11 = 1734

S5. Ans.(c)

Sol.

Series is

2 × 1 + 1 = 3

3 × 2 + 2 = 8

8 × 3 + 3 = 27

27 × 4 + 4 = 112

112 × 5 + 5 = 565

565 × 6 + 6 = 3396

6.Ans.(e)

Sol.

I. 16x² - 88x + 117 = 0

16x² - 36x – 52x + 117 = 0

4x(4x – 9) – 13 (4x -9) = 0

𝑥 =13/4,9/4

II. 25y² - 125y + 156 = 0

25y² - 65y – 60y + 156 = 0

5y (5y – 13) -12 (5y – 13) =0

𝑦 =12/5,13/5

∴ Relation cannot be established

7. Ans.(e)

Sol.

I. 2x² + 11x – 195 = 0

2x² + 26x – 15x – 195 = 0

2x (x + 13) – 15 (x + 13) = 0

𝑥 = −13,15/2

II. 3y² + 10y – 125 = 0

3y² + 25y – 15y – 125 = 0

y(3y + 25) – 5 (3y+ 25) = 0

𝑦 = −25/3,5

∴ Relation cannot be established.

8. Ans.(e)

Sol.

II. 2y² – 13y + 21 = 0

2y² - 6y – 7y + 21 = 0

2y (y – 3) -7(y – 3) = 0

𝑦 = 3,7/2

Putting these value in (i)

y = 3

3x + 4(3) = 24

x = 4

x > y

y =7/2

3𝑥 + 4 × (7/2) = 24

𝑥 =10/3

y > x

∴ No relation can be established

9. Ans.(d)

Sol.

x² +17x + 52 = 0

x² + 13x + 4x + 52 = 0

x(x + 13) + 4(x + 13) = 0

x = -4, -13

II. y² + 27y + 182 = 0

y² + 14y + 13y + 182 = 0

y (y + 14) + 13 (y + 14) = 0

y = -14, -13

x ≥ y

10. Ans.(b)

Sol.

I. 3x + 7y = 25

II. 7x + 6y = 48

Solving (i) & (ii)

x = 6, y = 1

x > y

S (11-15):

Total number of players = 800

Number of woman players =

1/4× 800 = 200

Number of man players =

3/4× 800 = 600

Number of cricket players = 25% of 800 = 200

Number of badminton players = 110

Number of tennis players = 10% of 800 = 80

Number of baseball players = 800 – (200 + 110 + 80 + 220) = 800 – 610 = 190

Number of woman cricket players = 30% of 200 = 60

∴ Number of man cricket players = 200 – 60 = 140

Number of woman badminton players =

1/2× 60 = 30

∴ Number of man badminton players = 110 – 30 = 80

Number of woman tennis players = 10% of 220 = 22

∴ Number of man tennis players = 80 – 22 = 58

Number of woman hockey players = Number of woman baseball players

=1/2

[200 − (60 + 30 + 22) =1/2

[200 − 112] =88/2] = 44

∴ Number of man hockey players = 220 –44 = 176

And number of man baseball players = 190 – 44= 146

Tabular form of above information is as follows

S11. Ans.(b)

Sol. From the table, number of woman hockey players = 44

Number of man badminton players = 80

∴ Required ratio = 44 : 80 = 11 : 20

S12. Ans.(c)

Sol. From the table, it is clear that the total number of man players in hockey, cricket and

baseball = 176 + 140 + 146 = 462

S13. Ans.(a)

Sol. Number of woman baseball players = 44

Number of man hockey players = 176

∴ Required percentage =

44/176× 100% = 25%

S14. Ans.(e)

Sol. Number of man baseball players = 146

Number of woman tennis players = 22

∴ Required difference = 146 – 22 = 124

S15. Ans.(d)

Sol. From the table, it is clear that women are maximum in cricket and men are minimum in

tennis.
