b) 6

c) 8

d) 4

chocolates?

a) 10

b) 12.5

c) 15

d) 17.5

Expression = $((49)^\frac{3}{2}+(49)^\frac{-3}{2})$

= $((7^2)^{\frac{3}{2}}+(7^2)^{\frac{-3}{2}})$

= $7^3+7^{-3}$

= $343+\frac{1}{343}$

= $\frac{117649}{343}$

=> Ans – (C)

Expression : $(4)^{11} \times (5)^{5} \times (3)^{2} \times (13)^{2}$

Prime factorization = $(2)^{22} \times (5)^{5} \times (3)^{2} \times (13)^{2}$

Now, there are 4 distinct factors = $2,3,5,13$

Total number of prime factors = $22+5+2+2=31$

=> Ans – (B)

Expression : $\frac{15}{\sqrt{5}+2}=?$

Rationalizing the denominator, we get :

= $\frac{15}{\sqrt{5}+2}\times\frac{(\sqrt5-2)}{(\sqrt5-2)}$

= $\frac{15(\sqrt5-2)}{5-4}=15\sqrt5-30$

=> Ans – (C)

Expression : $x=\frac{(943+864)^{2}-(943-864)^{2}}{(1886\times1728)}$

Using, $a^2-b^2=(a+b)(a-b)$, where $a=(943+864)$ and $b=(943-864)$

= $\frac{[(943+864)+(943-864)]\times[(943+864)-(943-864)]}{(1886\times1728)}$

= $\frac{(943+943)\times(864+864)}{(1886\times1728)}$

= $\frac{(1886)\times(1728)}{(1886\times1728)}=1$

=> Ans – (A)

If two triangles are similar, then the corresponding sides are proportional to each other. Also, the corresponding angles are equal, but the corresponding sides may or may not be equal to each other. Thus, all are correct.

=> Ans – (D)

Let side of the equilateral triangle = $s$ cm

Median = Height of triangle = $2\sqrt3=\frac{\sqrt3s}{2}$

=> $s=2\times2=4$ cm

$\therefore$ Area of the equilateral triangle = $\frac{\sqrt3}{4} (s)^2$

= $\frac{\sqrt3}{4}\times(4)^2$

= $4\sqrt3$ $cm^2$

=> Ans – (C)

Let both length and breadth of the rectangle be $l=10$ cm and $b=10$ cm

Area of rectangle = $A=l\times b=10\times10=100$ $cm^2$

New length when it is increased by 10% = $l’=10+(\frac{10}{100}\times10)=11$ cm

Similarly, new breadth when it is increased by 20% = $b’=10+(\frac{20}{100}\times10)=12$ cm

=> New area = $A’=11\times12=132$ $cm^2$

$\therefore$ % increase = $\frac{(132-100)}{100}\times100=32\%$

=> Ans – (B)

Let the numbers be $3x,6x$ and $8x$

Product = $3x\times6x\times8x=9216$

=> $x^3=\frac{9216}{144}=64$

=> $x=\sqrt{64}=4$

$\therefore$ Sum of the numbers = $3x+6x+8x=17x$

= $17\times4=68$

=> Ans – (D)

Rohit invested Rs. 75,000 for 12 months and Simran invested Rs. 60,000 for $x$ months

=> Ratio of profits of P:Q = $(75,000\times12):(60,000\times x)$

According to ques,

=> $\frac{75}{5x}=\frac{3}{1}$

=> $5x\times3=75$

=> $x=\frac{75}{15}=5$

Thus, Simran joined Rohit after = $12-5=7$ months

=> Ans – (A)

Total price of 30 chocolates = $30\times25=Rs.$ $750$
=> Total price of remaining $(50-30=20)$ chocolates = $1000-750=Rs.$ $250$
$\therefore$ Average price of 20 chocolates = $\frac{250}{20}=Rs.$ $12.5$
