CAT 2004 Question Paper


For the following questions answer them individually

Question 21

Let $$C$$ be a circle with centre $$P_0$$ and $$AB$$ be a diameter of $$C$$. Suppose $$P_1$$ is the mid point of the line segment $$P_0B$$,$$P_2$$ is the mid point of the line segment $$P_1B$$ and so on. Let $$C_1,C_2,C_3,...$$ be circles with diameters $$P_0P_1, P_1P_2, P_2P_3...$$ respectively. Suppose the circles $$C_1, C_2, C_3,...$$ are all shaded. The ratio of the area of the unshaded portion of $$C$$ to that of the original circle is

Question 22

Consider the sequence of numbers $$a_1, a_2, a_3$$....... to infinity where $$a_1 = 81.33$$ and $$a_2 = -19$$ and $$a_j = a_{j-1} - a_{j-2}$$ for $$j > 3$$. What is the sum of the first 6002 terms of this sequence?

Question 23

A sprinter starts running on a circular path of radius r metres. Her average speed (in metres/minute) is $$\pi$$ r during the first 30 seconds, $$\pi$$ r/2 during next one minute, $$\pi$$ r/4 during next 2 minutes, $$\pi$$ r/8 during next 4 minutes, and so on. What is the ratio of the time taken for the nth round to that for the previous round?
