5) The mean of 20 observations is 20. On checking, it was founds that two observations were wrongly copied as 6 and 12. If wrong observations are placed by correct values 18 and 4. Then the correct mean is

a) 20.2

b) 20

c) 21

d) 22.5

6) A water tank has X inlet pipes and y outlet pipes. An inlet pipe can fill the tank is 10 h while on outlet pipe can empty the full tank is 15 h. If all pipes are left open simultaneously it takes 18 h to fill the empty tank. What is the relationship between x and y?

a) x : y = 1 : 4

b) x : y = 4 : 1

c) x : y = 5 : 4

d) x : y = 4 : 5

7) What is the maximum possible value of (31 sin x + 12cos x)?

b) 31

c) – 15√5

d) √43

8) PQRS is a quadrilateral. The diagonals of ABCD intersect at the point A. The area of the triangles PAS and QAR are 9 and 36, respectively. If the areas of the triangles PAQ and RAS are equal, then the area of triangle PAS is

a) 18

b) 12

c) 16

d) 10

9) 1319 + 1119 will be divisible by which of the following number?

a) 24

b) 2

c) 3

d) All

10) Find the number of degrees subtended at the center of a circle by an arc, whose length is 19.62 times the radius.

a) 1123.69

b) 1113.5

c) 1125

d) 1024

We have, x2 – 3| x | – 2 |x| + 6 = 0

|x|2 – 3 | x | – 2 | x| + 6 = 0

(|x| – 3) (|x| – 2) = 0

|x| = 3 & | x | = 2

x =± 3 & x = ± 2 By comparison, P = 1, q = – 5, r = 10

(P + r)r + q = (1 + 10)10 – 5

= (11)5

Let the distance of the boat from the foot of lighthouse is x meter.  Radius of the circle = AC = BC

[As, AC = OB = BC = OA =7.25]

Given that, mean of 20 observations = 20.

Sum of 20 observations = 20*20 = 400

Sum of actual (correct) observations

= 400 – (+ 6 + 12) + (18 + 4) = 400 – 18 + 22 = 404.

Correct mean = 404 / 20 = 20 .2

One hour work of 1 intlet pipe = 1/10

One hour work of x inlet pipes = x/10

One hour work of 1 outlet pipe = 1/15

One hour work of y outlet pipes = y/15

x/10 – y/15 = x – y / 18

(9x – 6y)/90 = 5 (x – y)/ 90

9x – 6y = 5x – 5y

9x – 5x = – 5y + 6y

4x = 1y

x : y = 1 : 4 We know ratio of area divided by diagonals is same.

9/x = x/36

x2 = 9 * 36

x = 3 * 6 = 18 xn + yn is divisible by (x + y) where n ϵ odd numbers

So, 1319 + 1119 (13 + 1a) divides it.

24 and its factors also divide it so, 24, 2, 3 all divides it.

Number of radians in the angle,

= 19.620 = 16.62 * 180/π

= 1123.69
