OA + OB = 20 BR + AP = 7 & PR = OQ = radius of circle = 10 1 ∴ Length of boundary = π x 100 + 7 + 10 = 17 + 25π 4 7. (2); Given in 1000 ml of liquid C, A and B are in the ratio 3 : 2 A = 600 ml. B = 400 ml Now 400 ml is vapored where A and B are in the ratio 4 : 1 A = 320 ml. B = 80 ml Hence in remaining 60% of liquid C, liquid A is 280 ml and liquid B is 320 ml If we fill the container with liquid B then A = 280 ml & B = 320 + 400 = 720 ml A : B = 7 : 18 (1); Let Ram, Shyam and Ghanshyam take r, s, and g days respectively to complete the work rs + rg rs + sg + gr sg Then applying the condition, r = m or m = or m + 1 = s+g sg sg n+1= p+1=

‘b’ reaches at A 13 sec before. Then ‘a’ reaches at B. So he travels for 13 sec, before ‘a’ reverse the 5 325 direction it means both ‘a’ and ‘b’ then cover remaining distance viz. 130 − 13 x = meter with the speed 3 3 10 5 65 + = m/s 7 3 21 325 x 21 Hence the time taken is = 35 sec 3 x 65 In 35 sec ‘a’ covers 50 m from the shore B The distance between both the meeting points is 20 m (2); If b returns back to shore B. It covers 260 m in whole by the same time A will cover 260 x 260 −

Directions for Qs. 18 & 19: Refer to the following information for the following solutions. Let the set representations be TOI → A = 50 IE → B = 75 ET → C = 85 HT → D = 65 Also A ∪ B ∪ C ∪ D = 175 Now let, exactly 3 news paper readers = Exactly 2 newspaper readers = exactly 4 newspaper readers = x. ∴ At least 2 newspaper readers = 3x At least 3 newspaper readers = 2x ∴ n(A ∪ B ∪ C ∪ D) = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) + n(D) – {n(A ∩ B) + n(B ∩ C) + n(C ∩ A) + n(D ∩ A) + n(B ∩ D) + n(D ∩ C)} + {n(A ∩ B ∩ C) + n(B ∩ C ∩ D) + n(A ∩ B ∩ D) + n(A ∩ C ∩ D)} – n(A ∩ B ∩ C ∩ D) ∴ 175 = 50 + 75 + 85 + 65 – 3x + 2x – x x = 50 18. 19. 20. (1) (3); Exactly one newspaper = 175 – 3 x 50 = 25 (1); Statement I: n is a positive integer So 4n will always leave reminder 1 when divided by 3 hence 4n would not be divisible by 3. 1 Statement II: n is a real number when n is , 4 n + 1 = 3 2 Which is divisible by 3. 1 m When n is or other like number (4n + 1) would be divisible by 3. but when n is other than m ∈ N 4n + 1 2 2 would not be divisible by 3. hence by II it can not be answered.

1 2 P' time for a dis tan ce s 9 = 4= According to the question Q' time for the dis tan ce s 2 8 P ' speed 8 s = Q' speed 9 s Going through option only (3) satisfied the ratio. But at the same time (5) may be the answer. So we will approve the answer by checking further condition which is in 3 hrs. P would cover 120 km and in 2 hrs would cover 90 km Now as they both cover the remaining 120 & 150 at the same time (in 3hrs.) hence it is approved. {Q’s speed would be 45 + 5 according to question}
Hence 23. (3); A P D 75° C Q According to the theorem if we join PQ it would pass through the center. It means ∠ QCP = 90° & ∠CQP = 75° hence ∠ CPQ = 15° ∠ QAC = 15° {angle by same segment} B
