ENGLISH LANGUAGE
Directions (Q. 11–15): Read each sentence to find out if there is any error in it. The error, if any, will be in one part of the sentence. (Ignore the errors of punctuation, if any.) The number of that part is the answer. If there is no error, the answer is (e).
11).Of the two books (a) / he chose the one (2) / which he considered (c) / the most suitable. (d) / No error (e)
12). When he sleeps (a) / he left the radio on (2) / so that his parents would think (c) / that he was still reading. (d) / No error (e)

Solutions:

1). c) I. √x/4 + 7√x/12 = 1/√x => 10√x/12 = 1/√x => x = 1.2
II. 15/√y – 2/√y = 6√y =>6y = 13 =>y = 2.2

2). a) I. X1/3 x X2/3 x 3104 = 16 x X2=>X x 3104 = 16 x X2 =>X = 194
II. (Y1/4 ÷ 16)2 = 144 ÷ Y3/2 =>Y1/4 ÷ 16 = 12 ÷ Y3/4 =>Y= 192

3). a) I. √x/4 + √x /16 = 250/√x =>5X = 250 × 16 =>X= 800
II. 5/7 – 5/21 = √y/42 => 10/21 = √y/42 =>√y = 20 => y = ±4.5

4). e) I. 46X2 -98X+12=0 =>46X2-92X-6X+12=0 =>46X(X-2)-6(X-2)=0 =>(46X-6)(X-2)=0 => X= 2, 6/46
II. 30Y2 -82Y+28=0 =>30Y2-70Y-12Y+28=0 =>5Y(6Y-14)-2(6Y-14)=0 =>(5Y-2)(6Y-14)=0 => y = 2/5, 14/6
Hence, on relationship between x and y cannot be established

5). c) 41X + 11Y =2110_______ (1)×9; 21X + 9Y = 1650_______ (2)×11
369X+99Y=18990_______ (3);231X+99Y=18150_______ (4)
Eq (3) – (4) => 138X=840 =>X=6.1
Putting the value of X in (i), we getY= 169.1

6). c) (i) 7 days< 2 days (ii) 10 days< 5 days.From (i)& (ii) we can find the days he
took.

7). b) Only (i) and (iii) are sufficient to answer.

8). c) both (i) and (ii) are required.

9). d)E D A _ B; E _ A _ B; so either (i) or (ii)

10). c)I —>qa
Love —> la
Sweet —>ti
Chocolate —> mi

11).    Replace ‘most’ with ‘more’

12). Replace ‘sleeps’ with ‘slept’ as the sentences is in the past tense.
