b) 10

c) 5

d) 15

e) 12

Direction (1-5) :

I) x3 = ∛3112136 – 652 ÷ 4 + 92

X3 = 146 – (652/4) + 81

X3 = 146 – 163 + 81

X3 = 64

X = 4

II) y2 = 16

Y = 4, -4

X ≥ y

3x – 4y = 3 –> (1)

5x – 2y = -9 –> (2)

By solving the equation (1) and (2), we get,

X = – 3, y = -3

X = y

I) x2 + 21x – 72 = 0

(x + 24) (x – 3) = 0

X = -24, 3

II) y2 + y – 56 = 0

(y + 8) (y – 7) = 0

Y = -8, 7

Can’t be determined

I) 4x2 – 7x – 36 = 0

4x2 – 16x + 9x – 36 = 0

4x (x – 4) + 9(x – 4) = 0

(4x + 9) (x – 4) = 0

X = -9/4, 4 = -2.25, 4

II) 3y2 + 22y + 19 = 0

3y2 + 3y + 19y +19 = 0

3y (y + 1) + 19(y + 1) = 0

(3y + 19) (y + 1) = 0

Y = -19/3, -1 = -6.33, -1

Can’t be determined

I) √x ÷ ∛13824 = ∜6561 ÷ 72

√x ÷ 24 = 9/72

√x = (9/72)*24 = 3

x = 9

II) y2 – 13y + 42 = 0

(y – 7) (y – 6) = 0

Y = 7, 6

X > y

Directions (6-10):

Number of pink bottles in R1 = x

Number of yellow bottles in R1 = x-1

Number of green bottles in R3 = x-1

Number of green bottles in R1 = (x-1) +5 = x+4

Number of yellow bottles in R2 = (x-1) +5 = x+4

Number of red bottles in R3 = (x-1) +5 =x+4

Ratio of the number of green bottles in R2, red bottles in R3 and pink bottles in R3 = 1: 2: 1 = y: 2y: y

Number of red bottles in R3 = x+ 4 = 2y => y = (x+4)/2

Number of green bottles in R2 = y = (x+4)/2

Number of pink bottles in R3 = y = (x+4)/2

Number of red bottles in R2 = 90/100 * Number of red bottles in R3

= 90/100 * (x+4)

= 9/10 * (x+4)

Ratio of the number of pink bottles in R2, yellow bottles in R3 and red bottles in R1 = 8: 9: 7 = 8z: 9z: 7z — (1)

Number of red bottles in R1 and R3 = 41 — (2)

Number of red bottles in R1 = Number of red bottles in R3 + 1

Number of red bottles in R1 – Number of red bottles in R3 = 1 — (3)

Solve the equation (2) and (3), we get

Number of red bottles in R1 = 21 and Number of red bottles in R3 = 20

Substitute the value in equation (1)

Number of red bottles in R1 = 21 = 7z => z = 3

Number of pink bottles in R2 = 8z = 8* 3 = 24

Number of yellow bottles in R3 = 9z = 9* 3 = 27

Number of red bottles in R3 = 20 = x+4 => x = 20-4

x=16 Total number of bottles in each row is 72.

Required probability = 1 – Probability of none is pink

= 1 – 56c2/72c2

= 1 – (56*55/72*71)

= 1 – 385/639

= (639-385)/639

= 254/639

Required ratio = (21+18+20): (20+10+15)

= 59: 45

Required percentage = [(16+24)-20]/20 * 100

= 20/20 * 100 = 100%

Required average = (20+10+15)/3

= 45/3 = 15

Required difference = (15+20+27) – (16+24+10)

= 62 – 50 = 12
