a) + and ÷

b) + and –

c) ÷ and –

d) None of these

by applying BODMAS we have
=462.767-(34.428*3)+134.568
=462.767-103.285+134.568
=494.05

by applying BODMAS we have
=245+1280-312
=1525-312
=1213

Expression : $77 + 78 + 79 + ……… +113$

This is an arithmetic progression with first term, $a = 77$ , last term, $l = 113$ and common difference, $d = 1$

Let number of terms = $n$

Last term in an A.P. = $a + (n – 1)d = 113$

=> $77 + (n – 1)(1) = 113$

=> $n – 1 = 113 – 77 = 36$

=> $n = 36 + 1 = 37$

$\therefore$ Sum of A.P. = $\frac{37}{2} (a + l)$

= $\frac{37}{2} (77 + 113)$

= $95 \times 37 = 3515$

The $n^{th}$ term of an A.P. = $a + (n – 1) d$, where ‘a’ is the first term , ‘n’ is the number of terms and ‘d’ is the common difference.

3rd term, $A_3 = a + (3 – 1) d = 1$

=> $a + 2d = 1$ —————–(i)

Similarly, 9th term, $A_{9} = a + 8d = 25$ ——————(ii)

Subtracting equation (i) from (ii), we get :

=> $(8d – 2d) = 25 – 1$

=> $d = \frac{24}{6} = 4$

Substituting it in equation (i), => $a + 8 = 1$

=> $a = 1 – 8 = -7$

$\therefore$ 13th term, $A_{13} = a + (13 – 1)d$

= $-7 + (12 \times 4) = -7+48 = 41$

=> Ans – (D)

Given, Expression : $\frac{13167}{19019}$

We need to check whether any of the prime factors from 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19…… divides both numerator & denominator.

We observe that they can be divided by 7, 11 & 19.

Dividing both numerator and denominator by 7, we get = $\frac{1881}{2717}$

Similarly, dividing by 11, we get :

= $\large\frac{171}{247}$

Similarly, dividing by 19, we get :

= $\large\frac{9}{13}$

=> Ans – (B)

Let the number be $n$

According to ques, 1.8% of $n$ = 45

=> $\frac{1.8}{100} \times n = 45$

=> $\frac{1.8n}{100} = 45$

=> $n = \large\frac{45 \times 100}{1.8}$ $= 2500$

=> Ans – (A)

Given Expression : $\large\frac{2275}{2457}$

We need to check whether any of the prime factors from 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19…… divides both numerator & denominator.

We observe that they can be divided by 7, 13.

Dividing both numerator and denominator by 13, we get = $\frac{175}{189}$

Similarly, dividing by 7, we get :

= $\frac{25}{27}$

=> Ans – (D)

Given,  $t_{1}=2$, $t_{2}=3$

$t_{n+2}$ = $t_{n}+2t_{n+1}$

putting n=2, we get the 4th term. therefore,  $t_{4}$ = $t_{2}+2t_{3}$

So,we need to find, $t_{3}$

$t_{3}$ = $t_{1}+2t_{2}$ = 2+2(3) = 8

$t_{4}$ = $t_{2}+2t_{3}$ = 3+2(8) = 19

so the answer is option B.

Given, $\ p^{2}+16q^{2}\ = 8pq$

$p^{2}+16q^{2}=6pq$

$\Rightarrow p^{2}-8pq+16q^{2}=0$

$\Rightarrow (p-4q)^{2}=0$

$\Rightarrow p-4q=0$

$\Rightarrow p=4q$

$\Rightarrow \frac{p}{q}$=$\frac{4}{1}$

$\therefore p: q=4: 1$

Given, $7\Large\frac{1}{3}$ $+$ $5\Large\frac{1}{4}$ $-$ $8\Large\frac{3}{5}$ $+$ $15\Large\frac{2}{7}$ $=$?

= 7+5-8+15+$\large\frac{1}{3}+\frac{1}{4}-\frac{3}{5}+\frac{2}{7}$

=19+ $\large\frac{140+105-252+120}{420}$

= 19$\large\frac{113}{420}$

7$\frac{1}{5}$+2$\frac{1}{3}$-4$\frac{2}{15}$-3$\frac{5}{18}$+5$\frac{2}{9}$

= 7+2-4-3+5+$\frac{1}{5}$+$\frac{1}{3}$-$\frac{2}{15}$-$\frac{5}{18}$+$\frac{2}{9}$

=7+ $\frac{18+30-12-25+20}{90}$

= 7$\frac{31}{90}$

$\Large\frac{628}{60}$ $-$ $\Large\frac{44}{45}\div\frac{6}{9}$ $+$ $\Large\frac{575}{624}\div\frac{25}{104}$ $+$ $\Large\frac{13}{15}\div\frac{2}{5}$

$=$ $\Large\frac{314}{30}$ $-$ $\Large\frac{44}{30}$ $+$ $\Large\frac{115}{30}$ $+$ $\Large\frac{65}{30}$

$=$ $\Large\frac{450}{30}$ $=15$

$15.921$ $+$ $9.679$ $+$ $101.36$ $-$ $94.76$ $-$ $17.976$ $-$ $6.224$ $=$ ?

$15.921$ $+$ $9.679$ $+$ $101.36$ $=$ $126.96$

$94.76$ $+$ $17.976$ $+$ $6.224$ $=$ $118.96$

$126.96$ $-$ $118.96$ $=$ $8$

$\large\sqrt{1936}\div\sqrt{1331}\times\sqrt{50625}\div\sqrt{14400}\times\sqrt{64}$ $-$ $\large7920\div132$ $=$ ?

$\Large\frac{44}{11}$ $\times$ $\Large\frac{225}{(\Large\frac{120}{8})}$ $-$ $\Large\frac{7920}{132}$

$4$ $\times$ $15$ $-$ $60$ $=$ $0$

$522\div150\times25$ $=$ $87$

$96\div180\times15$ $=$ $8$

$\Large\frac{1125}{135}$ $\div$ $\Large\frac{5}{9}$ $=$ $15$

$87$ $+$ $8$ $-$ $15$ $=$ $80$

$x^{2}+9y^{2}$=6xy

$\Rightarrow x^{2}-6xy+9y^{2}$=0

$\Rightarrow (x-3y)^{2}$=0

$\Rightarrow$ x-3y=0

$\Rightarrow$ x=3y

$\Rightarrow \frac{x}{y}$=$\frac{3}{1}$

$\therefore$ x:y=3:1

Terms = $3^{200},\ 2^{300}\ and\ 7^{100}$

Dividing all the exponents by 100, we get :

$\equiv3^2,2^3,7^1$

= $9,8,7$

Thus, the largest number = $9\equiv3^{200}$

=> Ans – (A)

Total number of students = 40

Among the student who have passed, Raman’s rank from top = 13th

Raman’s rank from bottom = 17th

=> Total students who passed = $(13+17)-1=30-1=29$

$\therefore$ Number of students who have failed = $40-29=11$

=> Ans – (A)

L.H.S. = $1.39-2=-0.61\neq20$

(B) : + and –

$\equiv25-18\div2+4=20$

L.H.S. = $25-9+4=20$

=> Ans – (B)
