The pairs of numbers are (1,20), (2,20), (4,20) , (5,20) , (10,20) , (20,20) , (4,5) , (4,10). So, the number of unordered pairs is 8.

**10) Answer (E)**

The required number is the HCF of (91 – 43), (183 – 91) and (183 – 43) = HCF of (48, 92, 140) = 4

**11) Answer (D)**

The LCM of 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 is 120. So, the bells rings together once every 2 minutes. So, they ring together 15 times in a half-an-hour period.

**12) Answer (B)**

The LCM of the numbers is 288. So, multiples of 288 are divisible by all the numbers. LCM of 288 and 10 = 1440. So, the required number = 144

**13) Answer (A)**

Let the two numbers be 5h and 6h where h is the HCF of the numbers. Product of the numbers = Product of LCM and HCF.

=> $30 h^2$ = 120 => h = 2

So, the HCF of the two numbers is 2

**14) Answer (E)**

Let the numbers be ha and hb. HCF of the numbers = h and LCM of the numbers = hab.

Sum of reciprocals = (a+b)/hab

h(a+b) = 65

h = 5

(a+b) = 13

hab = LCM = 180

So, sum of reciprocals = 13/180

**15) Answer (D)**

The required number is the HCF of (1070 – 3, 1265 – 4) = HCF of (1067, 1261)

1067 = 11*97 and 1261 = 13*97

So, HCF = 97

**16) Answer (A)**

LCM of fractions = LCM of numerators/HCF of denominators

HCF of (3, 4, 5) = 1

So, LCM of the three fractions = 1/1 = 1

**17) Answer (B)**

From expression R > O = A > S < T, the two conclusions are made

R > O> S < T

R > A> S < T

Hence from the above expression S < R is definitely true.

**18) Answer (D)**

The given expression is P > L ? A N = T In order to satisfy the condition that ‘P > A’ as well as ‘T ≤ L’ we should replace ‘?’ with ‘’ (or) = symbol i.e. P > L ≥ A ≥ N = T satisfies both the condition. P > L = A ≥ N = T satisfies both the condition.

**19) Answer (D)**

In order to satisfy the condition i.e. ‘B > N’ as well as ‘D$\leq$L’ for the given expression, the expression should be written as B > L = O = N ≥ D From this expression, it is clear that B > N and D <= L

**20) Answer (E)**

For the given condition ‘A < P’

From option a, L < N < P > A => A < P

Hence, option a satisfies the condition.

From option b, L < A < P > N => A < P

Hence, option b satisfies the condition.

From option c, A < L < P > N => A < P

Hence, option c satisfies the condition

From option d, N < A < P > L => A < P

Hence, option d satisfies the condition

From option e, P < N < A > L => A > P

Hence, option e does not satisfy the condition

Option e does not agree with the condition ‘A < P’.

Therefore the correct option to choose is E

**21) Answer (C)**

For the given condition ‘F > N’ and ‘U > D’

From option a, F < O < U > N = D, F can be > N and U > D

Hence, option a does not make the conditions definitely false.From option b, F < O = U = N > D, F < N but U > D. Hence, both are not definitely false.

From option c, F < O = U = N < D, F < N and U < D. Hence, both are definitely false.Hence, option C.

**22) Answer (D)**

We start by placing M. To find people to one’s right, we move in the anti-clockwise direction and for left in the clockwise direction. With M placed, we can place B. Four places to the left or right will essentially be opposite spot. Hence, we can place K. We can place P with respect to B and W from P. Only three spots remain, so they must be arranged between H-D-Q as shown below.Hence, H is third to the right of B.

**23) Answer (E)**

We start by placing M. To find people to one’s right, we move in the anti-clockwise direction and for left in the clockwise direction. With M placed, we can place B. Four places to the left or right will essentially be opposite spot. Hence, we can place K. We can place P with respect to B and W from P. Only three spots remain, so they must be arranged between H-D-Q as shown below.Hence, PK are immediate neighbours of D.

**24) Answer (B)**

We start by placing M. To find people to one’s right, we move in the anti-clockwise direction and for left in the clockwise direction. With M placed, we can place B. Four places to the left or right will essentially be opposite spot. Hence, we can place K. We can place P with respect to B and W from P. Only three spots remain, so they must be arranged between H-D-Q as shown below.D is third to the right of W.
