CAT 2018 Question Paper (Slot 2) Question 89

Question 89

If A = {$$6^{2n} -35n - 1$$}, where $$n$$ = 1,2,3,... and B = {35($$n$$-1)}, where $$n$$ = 1,2,3,... then which of the following is true?


If we carefully observe set A, then we find that $$6^{2n} -35n - 1$$ is divisible by 35. So, set A contains multiples of 35. However, not all the multiples of 35 are there in set A, for different values of $$n$$.
For $$n = 1$$, the value is 0, for $$n = 2$$, the value is 1225 which is the 35th multiple of 3.
If we observe set B, it consists of all the multiples of 35 including 0.
So, we can say that every member of set A will be in B while every member of set B will not necessarily be in set A.
Hence, option A is the correct answer.
