b) 15899879

c) 15989979

d) 15998879

**Solutions 1 to 5**

1) Answer (d)

The least number which when divided by 25, 40 and 60 leaves the remainder 7

= L.C.M. (25,40,60) + 7

= 600 + 7 = 607

**2) Answer (b)**

Square root of 66049 = 257

Thus, unit’s digit = 7

**3) Answer (b)**

let the digits of the no. be X and Y

number = 10x+y

reverse of no. = 10y+ x

now (10x+y) – (10y+x) = 9x-9y = 9(x-y)

as shown above that 9 will always be the factor, irrespective of the difference and the number

so it can be concluded that the resulting number will always be divisible by 9

**4) Answer (a)**

Greatest 4 digit number = 9999

When 9999 is divisible by 307, remainder obtained = 132

Least number which must be added = 132

To verify, 9999+132 = 10131, which is divisible by 307.

**5) Answer (a)**

If a = 4011 and b = 3989

ab = 4011 * 3989 = (4000 + 11) (4000 – 11)

= 4000^2 -11^2

= 16000000 – 121

= 15999879
