**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

For the expression asin θ + bcos θ + c,

The maximum value = $c+\sqrt{a^{2}+b^{2}}$ &

The minimum value = $c-\sqrt{a^{2}+b^{2}}$

for 3 sin θ + 4 cos θ , a = 3, b = 4, c = 0

minimum value = $c-\sqrt{a^{2}+b^{2}}$

$= 0 – \sqrt{3^{2} + 4^{2}} = -\sqrt{25} = -5$

so the answer is option d.

**2) Answer (C)**

$(\sin^{2}x+\cos^{2}x)+\sin^{2}x$=1+$\sin^{2}x$

Minimum value of $\sin x$ is when $x$=0 i.e $\sin 0$=0

Therefore 1+0=1

Hence, option C is the correct answer.

**3) Answer (B)**

Given, a-b = 6, ab = 16

We know that $(a-b)^2 = a^2+b^2-2ab$

$6^2 = a^2+b^2-2\times16$

$a^2+b^2 = 36+32 = 68$

**4) Answer (C)**

$1+\dfrac{1}{1+\dfrac{1}{1+\dfrac{1}{1+\dfrac{2}{7}}}} = 1+\dfrac{1}{1+\dfrac{1}{1+\dfrac{1}{\dfrac{9}{7}}}}$

$= 1+\dfrac{1}{1+\dfrac{1}{1+\dfrac{7}{9}}}$

$= 1+\dfrac{1}{1+\dfrac{1}{\dfrac{16}{9}}}$

$= 1+\dfrac{1}{1+\dfrac{9}{16}}$

$= 1+\dfrac{1}{\dfrac{25}{16}}$

$= 1+\dfrac{16}{25}$

$= \dfrac{41}{25}$

**5) Answer (B)**

let the number be x

(x+12)/19=9

x=171-12

x=159

And then (159-40)=119

119/17 we get 0 as the remainder.

**6) Answer (C)**

$5 = 40-12x+x^2$

$x^2-12x+35 = 0$

$x^2-7x-5x+35 = 0$

$x(x-7)-5(x-7) = 0$

$(x-7)(x-5) = 0$

$x = 7$ or $x = 5$

So the answer is option C.

**7) Answer (A)**

$(a+b+c)^2$= $a^2+b^2+c^2+2(ab+bc+ca)$

$(4\sqrt3)^2 = 24 + 2(ab+bc+ca)$

$48 = 24 + 2(ab+bc+ca)$

$24 = 2(ab+bc+ca)$

$(ab+bc+ca) = \frac{24}{2} = 12$

So the answer is option A.

**8) Answer (B)**

Given $2^{2x} * 2^{2^{x}} * 2^{x}$ = $2^5$

So, $2x + 2^x + x$ = 5

We can observe that for x = 1, we can get required value.

So, option (b) is the correct answer.

**9) Answer (A)**

Total score made in his first 10 innings = 10*132 = 1320 runs

Score in his 11th innings = 0

Then, His new average = 1320/11 = 120 runs.

**10) Answer (D)**

For 3rd proportional we have 12:36::36:x

Therefore 12x=36*36

x=108

**11) Answer (B)**

Let the people in 1st class and 2nd class be 3x and 5x respectively

and the cost of ticket for 1st class and 2nd class be 5y and 2y respectively

Total amount from 1st class is 3x*5y=15xy

Total amount from 2nd class is 5x*2y=10xy

Total amount is 25xy=1250

xy=50

Amount from 2nd class is 10*50=Rs 500

**12) Answer (D)**

Slope = $\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1} = \frac{15-3}{-4-2} = \frac{12}{-6} = -2$

Equation of a line passing through $(x_1, y_1)$ having slope m is $(y-y_1) = m(x-x_1)$

Equation of a line passing through $(2,3)$ having slope -2 is $(y-3) = (-2)(x-2)$ ==> $y-3 = -2x+4$ ==> $2x+y = 7$

So the answer is option D.

**13) Answer (D)**

(4x+6y=8) is 2*(2x+3y=4)

So both represents the same equation, hence we cant find x or y

So the answer is option D.

**14) Answer (D)**

By checking each of the options given above, we can notice that only 98 satisfies the conditions given in the question. Hence the answer is (d)

**15) Answer (A)**

Generally, when two equations are given with three variables, we cannot determine the value of any of the variables or their sum. However, in certain cases we can manipulate the equations to reduce them to a two variable form where one of the variables is the sum of the original variable. Let’s try that approach here:

x+2y+5z = 14 can be written as (x+y+z) + (y+4z) = 14 —(a)

3x+5y+11z = 46 can be written as 3(x+y+z) + 2(y+4z) = 46 —-(b)

Let x+y+z=A and y+4z=B. Replacing these in (a) and (b) we get

A + B = 14 — (c)

3A + 2B = 46 — (d)

We subtract 2*(c) from (d)

(3A+2B) – (2A+2B) = 46-2*14

A = 18

Hence, x+y+z=18
