Zahir and Raman are at the entrance of a dark cave. To enter this cave, they need to open a number lock. Raman sees a note on a rock: “ ... chest of pure diamonds kept for the smart one ... number has six digits ... second last digit is 2, third last is 4 ... divisible by all prime numbers less than 15 ...”. Excited, Zahir and Raman seek your help: which of these can be the first digit of the six-digit number that will help them open the lock?

correct answer:-**5**

In a six-digit number, the sixth, that is, the rightmost, digit is the sum of the first three digits, the fifth digit is the sum of first two digits, the third digit is equal to the first digit, the second digit is twice the first digit and the fourth digit is the sum of fifth and sixth digits. Then, the largest possible value of the fourth digit is

Wilma, Xavier, Yaska and Zakir are four young friends, who have a passion for integers. One day, each of them selects one integer and writes it on a wall. The writing on the wall shows that Xavier and Zakir picked positive integers, Yaska picked a negative one, while Wilma’s integer is either negative, zero or positive. If their integers are denoted by the first letters of their respective names, the following is true:

$$W^{4}+X^{3}+Y^{2}+Z\leq4$$

$$X^{3}+Z\geq2$$

$$W^{4}+Y^{2}\leq2$$

$$Y^{2}+Z\geq3$$

Given the above, which of these can $$W^{2}+X^{2}+Y^{2}+Z^{2}$$ possibly evaluate to?

correct answer:-**4**

Let N, x and y be positive integers such that $$N=x+y,2<x<10$$ and $$14<y<23$$. If $$N>25$$, then how many distinct values are possible for N?

correct answer:-**6**

How many integers in the set {100, 101, 102, ..., 999} have at least one digit repeated?

correct answer:-**252**

How many of the integers 1, 2, … , 120, are divisible by none of 2, 5 and 7?

correct answer:-**2**

An encryption system operates as follows:

Step 1. Fix a number k $$(k \leq 26)$$.

Step 2. For each word, swap the first k letters from the front with the last k letters from the end in reverse order. If a word contains less than 2k letters, write the entire word in reverse order.

Step 3. Replace each letter by a letter k spaces ahead in the alphabet. If you cross Z in the process to move k steps ahead, start again from A.

Example: k = 2: zebra --> arbez --> ctdgb.

If the word “flight” becomes “znmorl” after encryption, then the value of k:

correct answer:-**5**

Then the highest possible 4-digit number satisfying the above conditions is

correct answer:-**4195**

correct answer:-**3**
