__SOLUTION__

**Direction (1-5) :**

1) Answer: c)

x2 -22x + 96 =0

x2 -16x -6x + 96 =0

(x-16) (x-6) =0

=>x = 16, 6

y2 -20y + 91 =0

y2 -13y- 7y + 91 =0

(y-13) (y-7) =0

=>y= 13, 7

Hence the relationship cannot be determined.

2) Answer: e)

I) x2 = 1089

x = 33,-33

II) y = √1369

y = 37

Hence x < y

3) Answer: a)

I) x2 -x -272 =0

x2 -17x+ 16x – 272 =0

(x-17) (x+16) =0

x = 17, -16

II) y2 +y -156 =0

y2 +13y- 12y – 156 =0

(y+13) (y-12) =0

y = -13, 12

Hence the relationship cannot be determined.

4) Answer: c)

I) 5x2 -18x + 9 =0

5x2 -15x-3x +9 =0

(5x -3) (x-3) = 0

x = 3, 3/5

II) 20y2 -13y + 2 =0

20y2 -8y- 5y + 2 =0

(5y -2) (4y-1) = 0

y = 2/5, 1/4

Hence x > y

5) Answer: e)

I) 2x2 -x -1 =0

2x2 -2x +x-1 =0

(2x +1) (x-1) = 0

x = -1/2, 1

II) 2y2 -4y + 2 =0

2y2 -2y-2y + 2 =0

(2y -2) (y-1) = 0

y = 1, 1

Hence x ≤ y

Direction (6-10) :

6) Answer: b)

Number of persons selected from Salem =150 +175+ 250 +300 = 875

Number of persons selected from Chennai = 225 +275 +300 +350 = 1150

Difference = 1150 -875 =275

7) Answer: a)

Number of persons selected from Madurai in 2017 = 250

Ratio between number of boys to number of girls selected from Madurai in 2017 = 2:3

Number of boys selected from Madurai in 2017 =100

Number of girls selected from Madurai in 2017 =150

Number of girls selected from Chennai in 2017 =150 + 75 =225

Number of person selected from Chennai in 2017 = 300

Number of boys selected from Chennai in 2017 = 300 – 225 = 75

8) Answer: d)

Total number of candidates selected from all the cities in 2018

= 150 + 200 + 175 + 150 + 225

= 900

Total number of candidate selected from all the cities in 2016

= 175 + 225 + 225 +250 + 275

= 1150

Required Percentage = (900/1150)×100 = 78.2 %

9) Answer: c)

Total number of candidate selected from Tirunelveli in 2015 & 2018 = 200 + 150

= 350

Total number of candidate selected from Coimbatore in 2016 & 2017

= 225 + 175 =400

Ratio = 350:400= 7: 8

10) Answer: b)

Candidate selected from Tirunelveli in 2015 =200

Candidate selected from Tirunelveli in 2014 = 42/100 ×200 = 84

The ratio between number of girls to boys selected from Tirunelveli in 2014

= 7: 5

Thus, Number of girls selected from Tirunelveli in 2014 =84/12*7= 49
