**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (A)**

Let the smaller number be $x$ and the larger number = $(x+1146)$

According to ques, on dividing the larger term by smaller one,

=> $(x+1146)=4x+6$

=> $4x-x=1146-6$

=> $3x=1140$

=> $x=\frac{1140}{3}=380$

$\therefore$ Larger number = $380+1146=1526$

=> Ans – (A)

**2) Answer (A)**

LCM of given 3 numbers (30, 36, 80) = 720

Multiple of 720 between 1000 and 2000 is 1440.

$\therefore$ Number which gives a remainder 11 in each case (1440 + 11) = 1451

Hence, option A is the correct answer.

**3) Answer (B)**

**4) Answer (B)**

**5) Answer (D)**

**6) Answer (D)**

**7) Answer (B)**

Let the given number be *x*

Let a be the quotient when *x* is divided by 114

So $\frac{x}{114}$ = a$\frac{21}{114}$

so *x* = 114a + 21

when *x* is divided by 19 it can be written as

$\frac{x}{19} = \frac{114a + 21}{19}$

114 is divisible by 19 and 21 leaves a remainder of 2.

**8) Answer (D)**

Number will be (136n + 36) where n is quotient

hence when it is divided by 17 remainder for $\frac{136n +36}{17}$ will be 2 as 136 is divisible by 17 and 36=34+2

**9) Answer (D)**

n = 5k+2 (where k is quotient )

so $n^2 = 25k^2 + 4 + 20k$

Now when $n^2$ will divided by 5 , remainder will be 4.

**10) Answer (A)**

$17^{200}=(18-1)^{200}$

Hence, when it is divided by 18, the reminder equals $(-1)^{200}=1$

**11) Answer (B)**

Number will be equal to 420t +3 = 13M

put values of M and t accordingly and find least value of it.

**12) Answer (C)**

The number is of the form 289n+18.

Which is equal to 17*(17n+1) +1

So, when the number is divided by 17, the reminder is 1

**13) 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

**14) Answer (B)**

Expression = $3^{2n}$ + 9n + 5

= $3^{2n}$ + 9n + 3 + 2

Taking 3 common from each term, we get :

=> 3 ($3^{2n-1}$ + 3n + 1) + 2

Now, if we divide the above term by 3, remainder will be 2.

**15) 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)
