a) If x < y

b) If x > y

c) If x ≤ y

d) If x ≥ y

**6) I) x ^{2} = 196**

**II) y ^{2} + 2y – 48 = 0**

** **

**7) I) x³ = 6859**

**II) y³ = 3375**

** **

**8) I) 2x ^{2} + 19x + 42 = 0**

**II) 4y ^{2} + 43y + 30 = 0**

** **

**9) I) 72 – 30x = – 2x ^{2} **

**II) y ^{2} – 40/6 = 7/3**

10) I) 2x^{2} – x – 1 = 0

**II) 2y ^{2} – 4y + 2 = 0**

**Answers :**

**1) Answer: B**

Difference = P * r^{2}/100^{2}

30.42 = 1800 * r^{2}/100^{2}

3042/18 = r^{2}

r = 13 %

**2) Answer: B**

Janani’s age today = 19 years

7 years back, Janani’s age = 12 years

Raja’s age = 12/1 * 5 = 60

Current age of Raja = 60 + 7 = 67

After 5 years, Raja’s age = 67 + 5 = 72 years

**3) Answer: C**

Speed in upstream = 500/450 m/sec

Speed in downstream = 500/ (6 * 60 + 30) m/sec = 500/390 m/sec

Rate in still water = ½ * (Upstream speed + Downstream speed)

= ½ * (500/450 + 500/390)

= ½ * (50/45 + 50/39) * 18/5 km/hr

= 4.3 km/hr

**4) Answer: A**

A takes 9 days in completing 25% of work alone

So, for 100% work A alone will take= 9 * 4 = 36 days

Time taken by A in completing 1/3 work = 36 * 1/3= 12 days

12 days taken by B in completing half of work

So, B alone can complete the work= 2 * 12 = 24 days

Required time= 1/36 + 1/24 = 72/5 days

**5) Answer: B**

Total number of balls = 11 + 8 + 13 = 32

Let, E be the event where the ball can be selected which is neither red nor blue

Therefore, P(E) = 8/32 = 1/4

**Directions (6-10) :**

**6) Answer: E**

**I)** x² = 196

=> x = +14, – 14

**II)** y^{2} + 2y – 48 = 0

=> (y – 6) (y + 8) = 0

=> y = 6, -8

**Hence, relationship between x and y cannot be determined**

**7) Answer: B**

**I)** x³ = 6859

=> x = 19

**II)** y³ = 3375

=> y = 15

**Hence, x > y**

**8) Answer: E**

**I)** 2x^{2} + 19x + 42 = 0

=> 2x + 12x + 7x + 42 = 0

=> 2x (x + 6) + 7 (x + 6) = 0

= > (2x + 7) (x + 6) = 0

=> x = -7/2, -6

**II)** 4y^{2} + 43y + 30 = 0

=> 4y^{2} + 40y + 3y +30 = 0

=> 4y(y + 10) + 3(y + 10) = 0

=> (4y + 3) (y + 10) = 0

=> y = -3/4, -10

**Hence, relationship between x and y cannot be determined**

**9) Answer: D**

**I)** 72 – 30x = -2x²

=> 2x² – 30x + 72 = 0

=> x² – 15x + 36= 0

= > x = 3, 12

**II)** y^{2} – 40/6 = 7/3

=> y^{2} – 20/3 = 7/3

=> y² = 27/3

=> y = 3, -3

**Hence, x ≥ y**

**10) Answer: C**

**I)** 2x² – x – 1 = 0

=> 2x² – 2x + x – 1 = 0

=> 2x (x – 1) + 1 (x – 1) = 0

= > ( 2x + 1) ( x – 1)= 0

=> x = -1/2, 1

**II)** 2y^{2} – 4y + 2 = 0

=> 2y^{2} – 2y – 2y + 2 = 0

=> 2y (y – 1) – 2 (y – 1) = 0

=> (2y – 2) (y – 1) = 0

=> y = 1, 1

**Hence, x ≤ y**
