A punching machine is used to punch a circular hole of diameter two units from
a square sheet of aluminimum of width 2 units, as shown below. The hole is
punched such that the circular hole touches one corner P of the square sheet
and the diameter of the hole originating at P is in line with a diagonal of the

the order of the digital root is defined as the number of times the process of adding the digits of a number is carried out to reach the final single digit number For example. Out of 15 points that lie on a plane. Given that 𝑚 = 1! + 2! + 3! + 4! + 5! … + 100!. find the last two digits of ‘𝑚′ (a) 1 (b) 9 (c) 13 (d) 19 13. Then which of the following is true? (a) 𝑝 + 𝑞 = 𝑟 + 𝑠 (b) 𝑝𝑟 = 𝑞𝑠 (c) 𝑝 + 𝑟 = 𝑞 + 𝑠 𝑝 𝑟 (d) 𝑞 = 𝑠 8. A two digit number is reversed and twice the resultant number is subtracted from the original number. find the remainder when m is divided by 168 (a) 33 (b) 129 (c) 153 (d) 67 The digital root of a number is the number obtained by adding all the digits. and then continuing the process till a single digit number is obtained. then what can be said about the value of m? (a) 𝑚 < 62 (b) 62 ≤ 𝑚 < 63 (c) 63 ≤ 𝑚 < 64 (d) 𝑚 ≥ 64 10. Given that 𝑚 = 1! + 2! + 3! + 4! + 5! … + 100!. find the number of triangles that can be formed using these points. If the result obtained is 13. then adding the digits if the number thus obtained. what can be said about the original number?
