**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (C)**

The number 323 can be written as :

323 = 17 * 19

where, both 17 and 19 are prime numbers.

Thus, 323 has 2 prime factors.

**2) 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

**3) Answer (B)**

Since, (12-8) = (18-14) = (36-32) = (45-41) = 4

we, need to find the L.C.M. of 12,18,36,45 and subtract 4 from it to get the required answer.

=> L.C.M. of 12, 18, 36 and 45 = 180

=> 180 – 4 = 176

Ans – (B)

**4) Answer (A)**

0 and 1 are not prime numbers

Between 2 and 3(both prime numbers), 2 is smaller

2 is the least prime number. (It is also the only even prime number).

**5) Answer (D)**

NOTE :- Sum of first ‘n’ odd natural numbers = n$^{2}$

Sum of first ‘n’ even natural numbers = n(n+1)

Sum of first 20 odd natural numbers = $20^{2}$ = 400

Arithmetic mean = 400/20 = 20

**6) Answer (B)**

The numbers 6,9,12,15,18 leaves same remainder 2 in each case.

So, what we need to do is find the L.C.M. of these numbers and add 2 to it

=> L.C.M. of 6,9,12,15,18 = 180

=> Required no. = 180+2 = 182

**7) Answer (B)**

The remainder obtained by dividing 2055 by 27 = 3

So, the least number that should be ‘subtracted’ from 2055 to make it perfectly divisible by 27 = 3

and the least number that should be added = 27-3 = 24

**8) Answer (C)**

Let the number of hens and cats in the shed be ‘h’ and ‘c’ respectively.

We know that h+c = 40 —– (1)

The number of hen legs = 2h

The number of cat legs = 4c

Total number of legs = 2h+4c

It is given that 2h+4c = 128 —– (2)

Solving equations (1) and (2) we get,

h=16 and c=24.

**9) Answer (C)**

Let the number be N.

=> N = 3a -1 = 7b-1 = 11c – 1

Or N+1 is divisible by all 3, 7, and 11

The smallest number which is divisible by 3, 7, and 11 is LCM (3,7,11) = 231

So, N+1 = 231 or N = 230

Thus, C is the correct answer.

**10) Answer (B)**

We have been given that sum of 8% of a and 4% of b is equal to three fourth of the sum of 9% of a and 8% of b

So we have

$\frac{8a}{100} + \frac{4b}{100} = \frac{3}{4}(\frac{9a}{100} + \frac{8b}{100})$

=> $ 8a + 4b = \frac{3}{4}(9a + 8b)$

$ 32a + 16b = 27a + 24b$

=> 5a = 8b

=> $\frac{a}{b} = \frac{8}{5}$

**11) Answer (B)**

Let the number be ‘N’

It is given that,

$\frac{5}{7}*\frac{3}{8}*\frac{5}{6}*N=225$

$=>N=225*\frac{7}{5}*\frac{8}{3}*\frac{6}{5}$

$=>N=1008$

**12) Answer (B)**

Let the number be abc. So, the reversed number is cba.

=> (100a +10b + c) – (100c + 10b + a) = 693

=> 99(a-c) = 693

=> a-c=7

So, (a,c) can be (7,0), (8,1), and (9,2). The digit in the tenth’s place can be any number from 0 to 9.

So, 3*10 = 30 numbers are possible.

**13) Answer (D)**

Let the first number be x. Then the second number would be 4x and the third number will be 12x. Hence the sum of the three numbers is x + 4x + 12x = 17x

Thus average = 17x/3

Hence we get, 17x/3 = 34

=> x = 6

Thus the largest number is 12*6 = 72 and smallest number is 6. Hence the required difference is 72 – 6 = 66

**14) Answer (D)**

Let the number of hens be ‘$h$’ and the number of dogs be ‘$d$’

It is given that $h+d = 42$ —– (1)

We know that a hen has two legs and a dog has 4 legs.

So the total number of legs = $2h+4d$

It is given that $2h+4d=120$ —– (2)

Solving equations (1) and (2) we get,

$h=24$ and $d=18$

Thus the number of hens is 24.

**15) Answer (C)**

Let the number be x

Based on the given information, x can be represented as 253a+128

x/23 = (253a+128)/23 = (11a + 5) + 13/23

Therefore, the remained when the number is divided by 23 is 13.

**16) Answer (A)**

Let the two numbers be $x$ and $(x+3)$

$\implies x^2+(x+3)^2=369$

$\implies 2x^2+6x-360 = 0$

$\implies x^2+3x-180 = 0$

$\implies (x+15)(x-12) = 0$

The numbers are positive, $x$ = $12$, Therefore, the given numbers are $12$ and $15$

Therefore, sum of the numbers is $(12+15)$ = $27$

Hence, the correct Option is A

**17) Answer (D)**

Let the number be N

If the remainder 4 is 3, the remainder is essentially -1

N = 4p-1 = 5q-1 = 6r-1

N+1 is a multiple of 4,5,6

Smallest value of N+1 is the LCM of 4,5,6

LCM (4,5,6) = 60

Hence, the required number is 59.

**18) Answer (C)**

Let the required number be x, then

6x/7 – 2x/3 = 8

=> (18x – 14x) = 168

4x = 168

=> x = 42

Hence 1/3 of the given number would be 42/3 = 14

**19) Answer (D)**

Remainder of 6 when divided 7 is essentially a remainder of -1.

Similarly for other two divisors as well the remainder is -1.

Let us assume the number to be N

=> N = 7a-1 = 8b-1 = 9c-1

Nor, N+1 is a multiple of all 7, 8, and 9

So smallest such N+1 will be the LCM (7,8,9) = 504

So, smallest N will be 503.

**20) Answer (C)**

Among the numbers from 100 to 200:

One in hundred’s place is present in 100 numbers

One in ten’s place is present in 10 numbers

One in unit’s place is present in 10 numbers

Thus the total number of one’s used = 100+10+10 = 120.

Hence, Option C.
