**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

let’s say digit is pqpq

or pq00 + pq

or pq*100 + pq

or pq (100 + 1)

or pq (101)

hence digit will always be divisible by 101

**2)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

We can break the sum according to 500 + 10p +9 + 327 + 200 + 10q + 8 = 1114

or 1027 + 17 + 10(p+q) = 1114

or (p+q) = 7

so for q to be maximum p will be zero then q = 7

**3)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

let’s say 6 consecutive numbers are (a-d), a, (a+d), (a+2d), (a+3d), (a+4d)

where d is the common difference i.e. 1 (given) and a is second term

summation of first three terms will be 3a = 27

hence second term a = 9

now sequence is 8,9,10,11,12,13,

so sum of last three terms 36

**4)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

$(n^{3} – n) $ can be written as n(n-1)(n+1)

for n to be any natural number, $n^{3} – n$ is a product 3 consecutive numbers starting from 1.

hence for any value of a min. product of 6 will be there hence it is always be divisible by 6.

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

let’s say one number is n and another number is p

so acc. to question sum will be 18n+21p

and this number will be divisible by 3 so answer will be (A)

**6)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

As we know a number with unit digit 2 have repeating cycle of 2,4,8,6 after every fourth power

as power is 173 or (172+1) where till 172 , 43rd cycle will get complete and next unit digit will be 2.

**7)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Among all options only option C has unit digit 5, and in given equation unit digit will also be 5.

So only 155 can divide the given equation completely.

**8)Â AnswerÂ (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.

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Let’s say number is N

So according to student result is $112= \frac{N+12}{6} $

or N = 660

Correct answer will be = $\frac{660}{6} +12 = 110+12 = 122$

**10)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

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

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

**11)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Both of numbers have unit digit as 4 and it has a repeating cycle of 2 with unit digits as 4 and 6

so in first number power is 372 which is exactly divisible by 2 hence unit digit of first number will be 6.

and in second number power is 373 which exceeds one with the reapeating cycle of 2 hence its unit digit will be 4.

now unit digit of the sum will be 6+4 = 10

**12)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

1+4=5

5+(4+3)=12

12+(4+3+5)=24

24+(4+3+5+7)=43

43+(4+3+5+7+9)=71

**13)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

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

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

**14)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

21+x=3x-7

or 2x=28

x = 14

**15)Â AnswerÂ (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

**16)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Expression : $\frac{1}{1+\sqrt{2}}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}+\sqrt{3}}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}+\sqrt{4}}+……+\frac{1}{\sqrt{8}+\sqrt{9}}$

After rationalizing, the denominator of each term will be 1, the numerator will be

= $\sqrt{2}$ – 1 + $\sqrt{3}$ – $\sqrt{2}$ + $\sqrt{4}$ – $\sqrt{3}$ +…….+ $\sqrt{8}$ – $\sqrt{7}$ + $\sqrt{9}$ – $\sqrt{8}$

Now, all the terms will cancel out except

= $\sqrt{9}$ – 1 = 3-1

= 2

**17)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

Square root of 66049 = 257

Thus, unit’s digit = 7

**18)Â AnswerÂ (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

**19)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

$\frac{1}{\sqrt{7}-\sqrt{6}}-\frac{1}{\sqrt{6}-\sqrt{5}}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{5}-2}-\frac{1}{\sqrt{8}-\sqrt{7}}+\frac{1}{3-\sqrt{8}}$

Rationalizing each term, we get, the denominator of each term will be 1, we get :

= $\sqrt{7}$ + $\sqrt{6}$ – ($\sqrt{6}$ + $\sqrt{5}$) + $\sqrt{5}$ + 2 – ($\sqrt{8}$ + $\sqrt{7}$) + 3 + $\sqrt{8}$

= 2+3 = 5

**20)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

$2+x\sqrt{3}$ = $\frac{1}{2+\sqrt{3}}$

Rationalizing the R.H.S.

=> $2+x\sqrt{3}$ = $\frac{1}{2+\sqrt{3}}$ * $\frac{2-\sqrt{3}}{2-\sqrt{3}}$

=> $2+x\sqrt{3}$ = $\frac{2-\sqrt{3}}{4-3}$

=> $2+x\sqrt{3}$ = $2-\sqrt{3}$

Comparing both sides, we get $x$ = -1
