For the following questions answer them individually

Question 26

If $$a \in R$$, then the equation $$x^2 + x + a = 0$$ and $$x^2 + ax + 1 = 0$$ have a common real root for

Question 27

A man standing x metres north of A tower finds the angle of elevation of as top to be 30° .He then starts walking towards the tower. After walking a distance of x/2 metres, he turns east and walks another x/2 metres. Then he turns south and walks another x/2 metres. The angle of elevation of the top of the tower from his new position is

Question 28

Let the equations of two circles $$C_1$$ and $$C_2$$ be given by $$x^2 + y^2 - 4x - 4y + 6 = 0$$ and $$x^2 + y^2 - 10x - 10y + k = 0$$ respectively, where $$k$$ is a constant. Suppose that $$C_1$$ and $$C_2$$ have exactly two common tangents. Then possible values of $$k$$ are

Question 29

Consider the function

$$f(x) = \begin{cases}2x -1 & if & x < -1\\x^2 + 1 & if & -1\leq x \leq 1\\x + 1 & if & x > 1.\end{cases}$$
