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
Consider a function f(x) = 1 – |x| on –1 ≤ x ≤ 1. The value of x at which the function attains a maximum and the maximum value of the function are:
 A 0, –1 B –1, 0 C 0, 1 D –1, 2

Question 4 Explanation:
f(x) = 1 – |x|
f(0) = 1
f(1) = f(-1) = 0
f(0.5) = f(-0.5) = 0.5
The maximum is attained at x = 0, and the maximum value is 1.
 Question 5

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)
There seems to be something wrong with question as it says ∠ QPS = 60°. The question is same on GATE official site paper.
 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)?
 A 6 B 7 C 8 D 9

Discuss it

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
 Question 10
Out of the following four sentences, select the most suitable sentence with respect to grammar and usage:
 A Since the report lacked needed information, it was of no use to them B The report was useless to them because there were no needed information in it C Since the report did not contain the needed information, it was not real useful to them D Since the report lacked needed information, it would not had been useful to them
