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.
