# Maths Questions for CTET,KVS Exam : 28th september 2018

Dear Students!!! There is most general as well as a scoring section in all the competitive entrance examinations in the teaching field i.e “Mathematics”.Because in this section only one thing is work i.e your accuracy and that could be nourished with the daily practice. So, for this, we are providing you the daily quiz for all teaching exams i.e CTET Exam 2018, DSSSB ,KVS,STET Exam.

Solutions

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. We have
11=(x+x+2+x+4+x+6+x+8)/5
⇒55=5x+20
⇒5x=35
⇒x=7
Now, the mean of first three observations:
=(x+x+2+x+4)/3=(3x+6)/3
=x+2=7+2=9

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Here, we have
8=(6+4+7+p+10)/5
⇒40=27+p
⇒p=40-27=13

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Mean height =(sum of heights of all persons)/(Number of persons)
=(114+152+151+158+155)/5
=730/5
=146 cm

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Mode = 3Median – 2Mean
Here, mode (Z) = 26.6, mean = 28.1
∴26.6=3Median-2×28.1
⇒3 Median = 26.6 + 56.2
⇒Median=82.8/3
⇒ Median = 27.6

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Arranging all the numbers in ascending order, we get
5, 10, 12, 13, 25, 36, 45, 50
Range = Highest value – Lowest valu
= 50 – 5 = 45

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Range = Highest value – Lowest value
Or, lowest value = Highest value – Range
= 85 – 51 = 34

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Class size = Upper limit – Lower limit
= 92 – 29
= 63

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. We know that
classmark=(Upperlimit+Lowerlimit)/2
=(17+27)/2
= 22

S10. Ans.(b )
Sol. We know that the mode is the number that appears most often.
So here, the mode is 3.
