**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (B)**

Let the number be x.

=> (9+x)(83+x) = (23+x)(41+x)

=> $747 + 92x + x^2 = 943 + 64x + x^2$

=> 28x = 196

=> x = 7

**2) Answer (B)**

Total age of Saurav and Sachin 10 years ago = 20 * 2 = 40 years

So, total age of Sachin and Saurav 5 years hence = 40 + 10*2 + 5*2 = 70 years

Total age of all three 5 years hence = 40*3 = 120 years

So, Viru’s age 5 years hence = 120 – 70 = 50

Viru’s present age = 50 – 5 = 45 years

**3) Answer (C)**

Let the number of chocolates with the man be N.

So, chocolates remaining with him after the distribution = N – (N/5 + N/4 + N/3) = N – 47N/60 = 13N/60 = 65

So, N = 65 * 60/13 = 300

**4) Answer (C)**

For any given number, that can be represented as $ A^{x} \times B ^ {y} $, etc

The number of factors is denoted by (x+1) x ( y+1), etc

360 = $ 2 ^ {3} \times 3 ^ {2} \times 5^ {1}$

So the number of factors = (3 +1) x (2+ 1) (1+ 1) = 4x3x2 = 24

For 240, it is $ 2 ^ {4} \times 3 ^ {1} \times 5^ {1}$

Number of factors = 5 x 2 x 2 = 20 only

**5) Answer (D)**

Only in option D the product of numbers is 182.∴option D is the right choice.

**6) Answer (D)**

Given, a = 6, b = 2, c = -8

Here, a+b+c = 0.

We know that if a+b+c = 0, then $a^3+b^3+c^3 = 3abc$

Therefore, $a^3 + b^3 + c^3 = 3 \times 6 \times 2 \times (-8) = -288$

**7) Answer (B)**

Given, $x + \dfrac{1}{x} = 3$

Cubing on both sides,

$(x + \dfrac{1}{x})^3 = 27$

$x^3 + \dfrac{1}{x^3} + 3 \times x \times \dfrac{1}{x} (x + \dfrac{1}{x}) = 27$

$x^3 + \dfrac{1}{x^3} + 3 \times 3 = 27$

Therefore, $x^3 + \dfrac{1}{x^3} = 27-9 = 18$

**8) Answer (C)**

Let the three numbers be 2n-2, 2n,2n+2

sum=6n

We have 6n=48

n=8

Substituting n=8 we have 14,16,18

Square of 18 is 324.

**9) Answer (C)**

By expressing the given value in terms of square we have $(x+6)^{2}+6$

Minimum value of the term in square is zero

And so minimum value of the expression is 6.

**10) Answer (D)**

From the remainder theorem we have if f(x) is divided by (x-a) then f(a) is the remainder and so by substituting -1 in f(x) we have

=$2*(-1)^{4}-(-1)^{3}+5*(-1)^{2}-2*(-1)+6$

=2+1+5+2+6

=16

**11) Answer (B)**

let the number be x

Given $x^{2}-(x/2)$=33

$2x^{2}-x$=66

$2x^{2}-x-66$=0

$2x^{2}-12x+11x-66$=0

2x(x-6)+11(x-6)=0

(2x+11)(x-6)=0

x=6

Cube of 6=216

**12) Answer (A)**

From the remainder theorem when f(x) is divided by (x-a) then f(a) will be the remainder and so substituting x=-1 in the equation we have

=7-5

=2

**13) Answer (A)**

We know that AM$\geq$GM

15$\geq$GM

Let the numbers be a and b

$\sqrt{ab}\leq15$

ab$\geq$225

**14) Answer (B)**

Let the numbers be n and n+1

Then we have (1/(n+1))+(1/(n))=11/30

(2n+1)/(n)(n+1) =11/30

60n+30=$11n^{2}$+11n

$11n^{2}-49n-30$=0

$11n^{2}-55n+6n-30$=0

11n(n-5)+6(n-5)=0

n=5 and so n+1=6

Sum of squares=25+36

=61

**15) Answer (B)**

From the remainder theorem we know that if f(x) is divisible by (x-a) then f(a)=0 an so by substituting x=3 in the expression we have

$3^{3}-4*3^{2}+12*3-k$=0

27-36+36-k=0

27-k=0

k=27
