Solutions
S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given pattern is 3 × 3 + 3 × 3 = 12, 4 × 4 + 4 × 4 = 16 and 5 × 5 + 5 × 5 = 20.
Here, the numbers of every expression are added.
∴ 12 × 12 + 12 × 12 = 12 + 12 + 12 + 12 = 48.
S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Place value of 6 in 437699 = 600
Face value of 6 is 437699 = 6
∴ Required sum = 600 + 6 = 606
S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given number is 847342.
Place value of first 4 = 40000
Place value of second 4 = 40
∴ Required difference
= 40000 – 40 = 39960
S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. ∵ 1 million = 10⁶
∴ 4.02 × 10⁶ = 4020000
S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. From the given options, √11 cannot be written in the form of p/q.
So, it is an irrational number.
S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. 2 is the first prime number.
S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. 2 is the only even prime number.
S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given, x + y = 21 and x – y = 11.
∴ x = 16 and y = 5
S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. Given, x = 3y and x + y = 20
⇒ 4y = 20 ⇒ y = 5
∴ x = 3y = 3 × 5 = 15
S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. ∵ 3-digit greatest number is 999
On adding 1, we get 999 + 1 = 1000,
Which is the least 4-digit number.
