Question 3 Explanation:

(I) is sufficient. We can determine total weight of 1o poles as 10 * 4 * 5 = 200 Kg (II) is also sufficient, we can determine the weight. Let x be the weight of 1 pole. 10*x - 2*x = 160 Kg x = 20 Kg 10x = 200 Kg

Question 4 Explanation:

f(x) = 1 – |x| f(0) = 1 f(1) = f(-1) = 0 f(0.5) = f(-0.5) = 0.5The maximum is attained at x = 0, and the maximum value is 1.

Question 8 Explanation:

Area of a Δ = 1/2 * ac sinB = 1/2 * bc sinA = 1/2 ab sinC Here area (ΔPQR) = area (ΔPQS) + area (ΔPRS) 1/2 rq sin120 = 1/2 PS * r sin60 + 1/2 PS * q sin60 => PS = rq/(r+q)

Question 9 |

If p, q, r, s are distinct integers such that: f(p, q, r, s) = max (p, q, r, s) g(p, q, r, s) = min (p, q, r, s) h(p, q, r, s) = remainder of (p × q) / (r × s) if (p × q) > (r × s) OR remainder of (r × s) / (p × q) if (r × s) > (p × q) Also a function fgh (p, q, r, s) = f(p, q, r, s) × g(p, q, r, s) × h(p, q, r, s). Also the same operation are valid with two variable functions of the form f(p, q). What is the value of fg(h(2, 5, 7, 3), 4, 6, 8)?

Question 9 Explanation:

The question asks value of fg (h(2, 5, 7, 3), 4, 6, 8) We need to first find value of h(2, 5, 7, 3) h is defined as h(p, q, r, s) = remainder of (p × q) / (r × s) if (p × q) > (r × s) remainder of (r × s) / (r × q) if (r × s) > (p × q) h(2, 5, 7, 3) = remainder of (7 * 3) / (2 * 5) since 7*3 > 2*5 = 1 fg(1, 4, 6, 8) = f(1, 4, 6, 8) * g(1, 4, 6, 8) = max(1, 4, 6, 8) * min(1, 4, 6, 8) = 8 * 1 = 8
