1. Let the number of pages in first volume be x, second volume be x + 50 and third volume be (x 50)

2

According to question, the sum of page numbers on the first pages of the three volumes is

1709

1 + (x + 1) + (x + x + 50 + 1) = 1709

3x + 53 = 1709

3x = 1709 – 53 = 1656

x = 552

3

last page = x + x + 50 + (x + 50)

552 + 602 + 903 = n

EXPERTS OPINION

The Paper contains 5 easy questions, 13 moderate questions, 9 difficult and 3 very difficult questions.

As compared to previous year paper the weightage of number theory and combinatorics was more and

sequence and series was less. Some of the number theory questions also contains logics of counting.

Some questions are very easy and formula base and some were very difficult. Over all the paper was

very interesting and conceptual. The difficulty level of this year paper was quite tough as compared to

previous year paper.

EXPECTED CUTOFF

By the deep analysis of faculties of vibrant academy the exerted cut of should be 22-26.
