Questions 31 to 40 will carry ONE mark only for correct answer but this does not indicate that these questions are simpler than first 30 questions. These questions are based on following information
In mathematics the numbers with constant difference between them are said to form an arithmetic progression, denoted by AP, for example 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17 . . . . is having common difference as 3, starting with 2. Or 10, 5, 0, -5, -10 . . . is starting with 10 and common difference is “-5”. So general notation of terms is a, a+d, a+2d, a+3d . . starts with “a” and common difference is “d ”. One can prove that nth of such AP is given by t n = a + (n-1)d and sum

of “n” such terms starting from a is Sn = n (2a + (n − 1)d) then— 2 31. The sum of first 50 natural numbers is – (A) 1175 (B)1275 (C)985 (D)2175 32.

Which of the following is correct – (A) if nth terms of different APs are added they form an AP with changed common difference (B) if a constant term is added to terms of AP it forms an AP with changed common difference (C) if nth terms of different APs are subtracted they form an AP with lesser common difference (D) all of above are correct 35.

If nth term is given by tn = 2n2 + 3 then – (A) first term of this AP is 5 (B) second term of this AP is 11 (C) common difference is 6 (D) none of above is correct as it is not representing an Arithmetic progression. 38. If sum of n terms Sn is n2 + 2n + 2 then – (A) first term is 5 (B) tn is 2n + 1 (C) common difference is 2 (D) such Sn is is not for AP 39.

Questions 41 to 45 will carry ONE mark only, for correct answer These questions are based on following information

In mathematics the numbers with constant ratio between then are said to form an geometric progression denoted by GP, for example 2, 6, 18, 54, . . . . is having common ratio as 3 starting with 2 Or 10, 1, 0.1, 0.01, . . . is starting with 10 and common difference is “0.1” so general notation of terms is a, a.r, ar2, ar3 . . starts with a and common ratio is r. One can prove that nth of such GP is given by tn = ar(n-1) and sum of n such terms starting from a is Sn =

A ball when hits ground it bounces up to half of its height from which it is released. If it is released from 1m height the total distance it will cover before it comes to rest will be – (A) ∞ (B)1m (C)3m (D)17m 47. A ball when hits ground it bounces up to half of its height from which it is released. If it is released from 1m height the magnitude of total displacement it will cover before it comes to rest will be – (A) ∞ (B)1m (C)3m (D)17m 48. IF ABCD is a square of side 1m.
