Solutions
S1. Ans.(d)
S2. Ans.(d)
S3. Ans.(b)
S4. Ans.(c)
S5. Ans.(d) Add on type- A set of objects is ‘added on’ to a similar set of objects, making the initial set bigger. Each problem is dynamic in nature as there is a dynamism if giving or taking, adding or removing. In the Combination-type problems, two smaller sets were joined to make a bigger set, whereas in the Adding-on type, the initial set itself becomes larger.
In combination-type structures, two or more sets of similar type are combined to get a larger set. Depending upon the known and the unknowns will determine if the problem is of addition type or subtraction type.
In the take-away structures, a set of objects is ‘taken away’ from an initial set, making the initial set smaller.
In comparison situations, we compare the cardinality of two set.
S6. Ans.(c)

S8. Ans.(b)
S9. Ans.(c)
