**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

Mode = 3(Median)-2(Mean)

7 = 3(5)-2(mode)

7-15 = -2(mode)

-8 = -2(mode)

mode = 4

So the answer is option D.

**2) Answer (A)**

Given, $\dfrac{sin a}{cos a} = \dfrac{x}{y}$

⇒ $\dfrac{sin a}{x} = \dfrac{cos a}{y}$

Let $\dfrac{sin a}{x} = \dfrac{cos a}{y}$ = k

$\dfrac{sin a}{x} = k ⇒ sin a = kx$

$\dfrac{cos a}{y} = k ⇒ cos a = ky$

We know that $sin^2 a + cos^2 a = 1$

$sin^2 a = (kx)^2 = k^2 x^2$

$cos^2 a = (ky)^2 = k^2 y^2$

⇒ $k^2 x^2 + k^2 y^2 = 1$

⇒ $k^2 ( x^2 + y^2 ) = 1$

⇒ $k^2 = \dfrac{1}{x^2 + y^2}$

$sin^2 a – cos^2 a = k^2 x^2 – k^2 y^2 = k^2 (x^2 – y^2)$

Substituting $k^2 = \dfrac{1}{x^2 + y^2}$ in above equation

Therefore, $sin^2 a – cos^2 a = \dfrac{x^2 – y^2}{x^2 + y^2}$

**3) Answer (C)**

we know that $\sec^{2}\theta-\tan^{2}\theta$=1

$(\sec\theta+\tan\theta)(\sec\theta-\tan\theta)$=1

$(\sec\theta+\tan\theta) \times 4=1$

$\csc\theta+\cot\theta$=1/4

**4) Answer (A)**

Given $\sin\theta$=5/13

From $\sin^{2}\theta+\cos^{2}\theta$=1

$\cos\theta$=12/13

$\sec\theta$=13/12

$\tan\theta$=$\sin\theta$/$\cos\theta$

=5/12

sum=(13/12)+(5/12)

=18/12

=3/2

**5) Answer (A)**

We know that AM$\geq$GM

15$\geq$GM

Let the numbers be a and b

$\sqrt{ab}\leq15$

ab$\geq$225

**6) Answer (B)**

Let the least odd number be 2n+1 then

2n+1+2n+3+2n+5+2n+7+2n+9=10n+25

10n+25=125

10n=100

n=10

Least odd number=21

Largest number=29

Product of 21*29=607

Hence, option B is the correct answer.

**7) Answer (D)**

let the cost of cake be x

40x=((2x-1)/2)42+9

40x=42x-21+9

2x=12

x=6

If x=6 total money with him is 40*6=Rs 240

Hence, option D is the correct answer.

**8) Answer (D)**

Substituting the values in (1), we get 3 * 3 + 4 * 4 – 6 = 19

So, (1) is false.

Substituting the values in (2), we get 3 * 4 + 4 * 6 – 6 *3 = 18

So, (2) is true

Substituting the values in (3), we get 3 * 4 * 6 – 4 * 4 + 6 * 3 – 4 = 50

So, (3) is false.

Substituting the values in (4), we get 3 * 3 * 6 > 4 * 4 * 3

So, (4) is true

Hence the correct option is (d)

**9) Answer (C)**

Volume of a cone=$(1/3)\pi r^{2}h$

r2=2*r1/5

$(r1)^{2}h1$=$ (r2)^{2}h2$

h1=(4/25)h2

h1:h2=4:25

**10) Answer (C)**

Given $\angle ABC = 90^\circ$

In a triangle, if two sides are equal, then, opposite angles are equal.

Here, AB = BC ⇒ $\angle A = \angle C$

Let $\angle A = \angle C = x^\circ$

Sum of angles in a triangle is equal to $180^\circ$

⇒ $90^\circ + 2x = 180^\circ$

⇒ $ 2x = 90^\circ$

⇒ $ x = 45^\circ$

Hence, $\angle ACB = 45^\circ$

**11) Answer (C)**

Volume of cake = vol.of bread + vol.of chocolate

(20)(14)(8) = vol.of bread + 880

2240 = vol.of bread + 880

Vol.of bread = 1360

So the answer is option C.

**12) Answer (A)**

Given,

Mean temperature of a week = $ 28^{0} $ i.e Total temperature 28 x 7 = 196

Mean temperature for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday is $ 27.5^{0}$ i.e total temperature = 27.5 x 4 = 110 and

The mean temperature for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday is $ 29^{0}$ i.e total temperature = 29 x 4 = 116

Now, the temperature recorded for Thursday is,

(110 + 116) – 196 = 226 – 196 = 30

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

**13) Answer (C)**

Let the present age of the son be x years

Mother’s age at the time of his birth will be 42 – x years

Given, 42 – x = x ⇒ 2x = 42

⇒ x = 21 years

Hence, The present age of the son = 21 years.

**14) Answer (D)**

$432 = 2^4 * 3^3$

So, log 432 = log $(2^4 * 3^3)$ = log $2^4$ + log $3^3$ = 4 log 2 + 3 log 3

= 4 * 0.3010 + 3 * 0.4771 = 2.6353

**15) Answer (B)**

For each friend, there are two options – he is invited, he is not invited.

So, the number of ways of inviting the friends is 2*2*2*…*2 (10 times) = $2^{10}$

From this, we have to subtract the case when none of the friends are invited. So, the total number of ways of inviting the friends such that at least one friend is invited is $2^{10}$ – 1
