**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

Let the two numbers be $12x$ and $12y$ respectively where $x$ and $y$ are co-primes

Product of numbers = $(12x) \times (12y)=2160$

=> $xy=\frac{2160}{144}=15$

Possible pairs of $x$ and $y$ whose H.C.F. is 1 = $(3,5)$

$\therefore$ Required numbers = $(12 \times 3),(12 \times 5)$

= 36 , 60

=> Ans – (C)

**2) Answer (C)**

2 digits numbers which are divisible by 9 are : 18,27,…..,99

Clearly, these numbers form an A.P. with first term, $a=18$, last term, $l=99$ and common difference, $d=9$

Let number of terms be $n$

=> Last term of an A.P. = $l=a+(n-1)d$

=> $99=18+(n-1)9$

=> $(n-1)9=99-18=81$

=> $(n-1)=\frac{81}{9}=9$

=> $n=9+1=10$

Thus, there are 10 two digit numbers that are divisible by 9.

=> Ans – (C)

**3) Answer (C)**

If a number is divisible by 9, then the sum of its digits must also be divisible by 9.

Number : 347P

Sum of digits = $3+4+7+P=(14+P)$

Now, for above value to be divisible by 9, it should be equal to 18 (next highest multiple of 9)

=> $14+P=18$

=> $P=18-14=4$

=> Ans – (C)

**4) Answer (B)**

On dividing 400 by 7, we get : $400=7\times57+1$

Thus, the smallest number which should be subtracted from 400 = 1

Also, $400-1=399$ is completely divisible by 7.

=> Ans – (B)

**5) Answer (C)**

On dividing 300 by 9, we get : $300=9\times33+3$

Thus, the smallest number which should be subtracted from 300 = 3

Also, $300-3=297$ is completely divisible by 9.

=> Ans – (C)

**6) Answer (A)**

The number when divided by 18 leaves remainder 15, => Number is of the form = $N=18k+15$, where $k$ is a whole number.

Now, when $N$ is divided by 6, we get : $\frac{18k+15}{6}$

= $(\frac{18k}{6})+(\frac{15}{6})$

$18k$ is completely divisible by 6, hence the second term will determine the remainder.

=> Remainder when 15 is divided by 6 is $15\%6=3$

=> Ans – (A)

**7) Answer (D)**

Number : 123457Y

If a number is completely divisible by 8, then the last three digits of the number must also be divisible by 8.

=> $57Y$ must be divisible by 8 and the only three digit number starting with ’57’ which is divisible by 8 is = 576

=> $Y=6$

=> Ans – (D)

**8) Answer (A)**

The number when divided by 30 leaves remainder 17, => Number is of the form = $N=30k+17$, where $k$ is a whole number.

Now, when $N$ is divided by 10, we get : $\frac{30k+17}{10}$

= $(\frac{30k}{10})+(\frac{17}{10})$

$\because30k$ is completely divisible by 10, hence the second term will determine the remainder.

=> Remainder when 17 is divided by 10 is $17\%10=7$

=> Ans – (A)

**9) Answer (D)**

If the positive difference between the sum of even digits and odd digits (starting from unit’s place) is divisible by 11, then the number is also divisible by 11.

(A) : 44433 = $(3+4+4)-(3+4)=11-7=4$

(B) : 45332 = $(2+3+4)-(3+5)=9-8=1$

(C) : 23581 = $(1+5+2)-(8+3)=8-11=3$

(D) : 59609 = $(9+6+5)-(0+9)=20-9=11$

In the above numbers, only in the last option, 11 is divisible by 11, hence 59609 is divisible by 11.

=> Ans – (D)

**10) Answer (B)**

We know that LCM*HCF = product of two numbers

=> 162*9 = 18*x

=> x = 162*9/18 = 9*9 = 81

Hence, the required number is 81.

**11) Answer (C)**

Let the number be 10x + y

=> We have been given that

10y + x – 10x – y = 18

=> 9 (y – x) = 18

=> y – x = 2

Since, both x and y are natural numbers so, y can range from 3 to 9. Thus, there are 7 such natural numbers.

**12) Answer (C)**

L.C.M. (38,57) = 114

Now, multiple of 114 between 900 and 1000 = 912

Now, the number which leaves remainder 23 = $912+23=935$

=> Ans – (C)

**13) Answer (A)**

Let there are ‘x’ members in the society. So the amount needed for the function = x(x + 10) = $x^2 + 10x$

Here x = 26. So the required amount will be 26*36 = 936. Thus, option A is correct.

**14) Answer (C)**

We have been given that a number on division by 378 leaves a remainder of 75. So the number can be expressed as

N = 378*k + 75

We can write this as

N = 18*k + 21*k + 75

Hence, we can see that remainder with 21 will be nothing but the remainder when 75 is divided by 21. This will be equal to 12. Hence, 12 is the correct answer.

**15) Answer (C)**

We know that when the number is between 0 and 1, then higher the power smaller will be the number. Consider an example to understand this.

Let x = .25

So $\sqrt{x} = .5$

=> $x^2 = .0625$

We can see that the correct order is $ \sqrt{x} > x > x^2$

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**16) Answer (B)**

We can express the given number as

100x + 10y + z

We have been given that x + y + z is subtracted from this number. So we have

100x + 10y + z – x – y – z = 99x – 9z = 9(11x – z)

Thus, it must be divisible by 3 and 9.

**17) Answer (A)**

The number on division by 36 leaves a remainder of 18. So the number can be expressed as

N = 36k + 18

This can be re-written as

N = 18(2k + 1)

Thus, we can see that N must be divisible by 18. Hence, option A is definitely true.

**18) Answer (D)**

We know that 17*85 = 1445

1445 is the smallest number above 1434 and divisible by 17.

So 1445 – 1434 = 11 must be added to 1434 to get a number which is divisible by 17.

Hence, option D is the correct option.

**19) Answer (B)**

Number between 45 and 63 which are prime are – 47,53,59,61.

Required sum = 47 + 53 + 59 + 61 =220

Hence, option B is the correct option.

**20) Answer (C)**

For a number to be divisible by 11. The difference of the sum of digits in even places and odd places should be equal to 0 or divisible by 7.

Let the blank be x.

Sum of odd places = 2 + 5 + 9 + 8 = 24

Sum of even places = 7 + x + 5 + 3 = 15 + x

Difference = 9 – x = 0

X = 9
