(a) 215
(b) 225
(c) 226
(d) 216

Solution

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol.
The total marks of 17 students = 17 × 71= 1207
total mark difference = 65 – 56 = 9
and 50 – 24 = 26
so, 26 – 9 = 17
so, correct average = (1207+17)/17=72

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Interest =(P×r×t)/100
2/5 P=(P×r×5)/100
r = 8%

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Additive inverse means the same number with an opposite sign.
Therefore additive inverse of (-2)/17 is 2/17.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol.
The smallest sum is 10.

S6.Ans.(d)
Sol. After arranging the numbers from the lowest to the highest, we have 1278 < 1279 < 9871 < 10001

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Let x be subtracted from (-5)/7 to get –1.
∴ (-5)/7-x=-1
⇒(-5)/7+1=x
⇒(-5+7)/7=x
∴ x = 2/7

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Here, the next digit to b is 8.
Therfore, a must be greater than 4.

If a = 5; b = 9, a + b = 14

If a = 6; b = 8, a + b = 14

If a = 7; b = 7, a + b = 14

If a = 8; b = 6, a + b = 14

If a = 9; b = 5, a + b = 14

∴ a + b = 14

S9. Ans.(d)
Sol. For a perfect square, the unit’s digit cannot be 2, 3, 7 or 8; therefore, the first option is eliminated.
If the unit’s digit of a perfect square is 5, its ten’s digit is always 2; therefore, the second option is eliminated.
If a perfect square ends in 1, its ten’s digit is always even; thus, option (c) is also wrong.
So, we are left with only option (d), which is the answer.

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. 5 × 2 = 5² + 2² = 25 + 4 = 29
Then,
(5 × 2) . 25 = 29 . 25 = 29² – 25²
= (29 + 25) (29 – 25)
= 54 × 4 = 216
