1. Let P be a prime number greater than 37. Then the largest number that will always divide (P – 1) × (P + 1) is

  • (A) 32
  • (B) 16
  • (C) 8
  • (D) 4
  • (E) 24

2. In the given figure, AL is perpendicular to AB and AL || BK || CI || DG || EF. Also AE || KG || JF and AL = AB = 2BK = BC = CI = 4CD = 3IJ. Then the ratio of the areas of the quadrilaterals ABKL and IJKG is

  • (A) 3 : 1

  • (C) 19 : 12
  • (D) 22 : 13
  • (E) None of these

  1. Problem #2) Solution :
    B D=x cm;;
    C o s
    Or (A B ^2+ B D ^2-A D ^2)/(2 * A B* B D)=(A C ^2+C D ^2-A D ^2)/(2* A C * C D);
    Or ( 1 7^2 +x ^2 -1 5 ^2/(2* 17 * x)=(1 7^2 + 4 ^2-1 5 ^2)/(2 * 17* 4);
    Or (64+ x^2)/x= (80)/4=20;
    Or 64+ x^2=20 *x; or x=4 or 16 ;
    Admissible value of x=16B D= x cm=16 cm

    1. Solution of problem1.
      First we will measure 3 conis each side.
      Case1 – if balance is eqall we will measure two out of 3 coins putting one on each side, thus we will get the heavier one.
      Case 2 – if one side is heavier them we will take 2 coins of the heavier side and measure by putting one each side, thus we can find the heavier one.

  3. Question 1 solution :
    (c)
    As 10 houses have less than 6rooms, they are to be excluded.
    Given,
    4 houses have more than 8 rooms .
    Therefore, number of houses having either less than 6 or greater than 8 rooms = 10 + 4 = 14.
    The remaining houses, that is 11 houses fulfill the above mentioned criteria.
