For the following questions answer them individually

Question 11

Let $$n!=1*2*3* ...*n$$ for integer $$n \geq 1$$.

If $$p = 1!+(2*2!)+(3*3!)+... +(10*10!)$$, then $$p+2$$ when divided by 11! leaves a remainder of

Question 12

Consider a triangle drawn on the X-Y plane with its three vertices at (41, 0), (0, 41) and (0, 0), each vertex being represented by its (X,Y) coordinates. The number of points with integer coordinates inside the triangle (excluding all the points on the boundary) is

Question 13

The digits of a three-digit number A are written in the reverse order to form another three-digit number B. If B > A and B-A is perfectly divisible by 7, then which of the following is necessarily true?

Question 14

If $$a_1 = 1$$ and $$a_{n+1} - 3a_n + 2 = 4n$$ for every positive integer n, then $$a_{100}$$ equals

Question 15

Let S be the set of five-digit numbers formed by the digits 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, using each digit exactly once such that exactly two odd positions are occupied by odd digits. What is the sum of the digits in the rightmost position of the numbers in S?


Question 16

The rightmost non-zero digit of the number $$30^{2720}$$ is

Question 17

Four points A, B, C, and D lie on a straight line in the X-Y plane, such that AB = BC = CD, and the length of AB is 1 metre. An ant at A wants to reach a sugar particle at D. But there are insect repellents kept at points B and C. The ant would not go within one metre of any insect repellent. The minimum distance in metres the ant must traverse to reach the sugar particle is

Question 18

If x >= y and y > 1, then the value of the expression $$log_x (x/y) + log_y (y/x)$$ can never be

Question 19

For a positive integer n, let $$P_n$$ denote the product of the digits of n, and $$S_n$$ denote the sum of the digits of n. The number of integers between 10 and 1000 for which $$P_n$$ + $$S_n$$ = n is

Question 20

Rectangular tiles each of size 70 cm by 30 cm must be laid horizontally on a rectangular floor of size 110 cm by 130 cm, such that the tiles do not overlap. A tile can be placed in any orientation so long as its edges are parallel to the edges of the floor. No tile should overshoot any edge of the floor. The maximum number of tiles that can be accommodated on the floor is
