Question 1 Explanation:

n(A ∪ B ∪ C) = n(A) + n(B) + n(C) - [n(A ∩ B) + n(A ∩ C) + n(B ∩ C)] + n(A ∩ B ∩ C)
150 = 99+56+89 - [25+65+18] + x
150 = 244 - 108 + x
So, x = 14
Answer : Option D

Question 7 |

"

**Three Gorges Dam**crosses the Yangtze River in Hubei province, China. It is the world’s largest hydroelectric power station by total capacity of 22,500 MW. A shift in a mass of that size will impact the rotation of the Earth due to a phenomena known as “the moment of inertia”, which is the inertia of a rigid rotating body with respect to its rotation. The moment of inertia of an object about a given axis describes how difficult it is to change its angular motion about that axis. The longer the distance of a mass to its axis of rotation, the slower it will spin. Raising 39 trillion kilograms of water 175 meters above sea level will increase the Earth’s moment of inertia, and thus slow its rotation. However, the impact will be extremely small. NASA scientists calculated the shift of such a mass will increase the length of day by only 0.06 microseconds, and make the Earth only very slightly more round in the middle and more flat on the top. It will also shift the pole position by about two centimeters (0.8 inch)." Choose the most relevant option based on above paragraph :This dam is a remarkable piece of engineering and increased the Earth’s moment of inertia very slightly. | |

We can use 'the moment of inertia' to increase the length of day by making more such dams. | |

Such projects should be made to slow the rotation of the earth. | |

Such dams can make the shape of Earth flat, so should not be encouraged. |

Question 8 Explanation:

Unit digit will only depend on the unit digit of 35 and 87.
For the first part (35)

^{87}, unit digit will only depend on 5. And for every power of 5 it will end only with 5. -------- (i) And for second part (93)^{46},here unit digit is 3 and cyclicity for 3 is 4,it means that after every 4th power unit digit will repeat. When will divide the power 46 with 4 we get the remainder as 2. And hence 3^{2}is 9. ---------(ii) Now from equation (i) and (ii) we have, 5+9 = 14 Hence, the unit digit is 4. Option A is correct.Question 9 |

Five colleague of different age group headed to the bar for celebrating birthday party. Few of them decided to order alcohol. The government rule clearly sates that one must be atleast 25 years old inorder to drink alcohol. Peter is the head of team and eldest member with age 40 and Bruce is co-teamlead. John is drinking banana smoothie. Barry is drinking alchohol and Smith, who is 20 years old, haven't decided yet. Choose the correct option to make sure rules are being followed :

Check Bruce's age | |

Check Bruce's and Smith's drink | |

Check Bruce and Barry's age and Smith's drink | |

Check Peter and Smith's drink |

Question 9 Explanation:

Bruce is co-teamlead, whose age is not given. So his drink must be checked.
John is having banana smoothie, so no need of checking.
Barry is drinking alcohol, so his age must be checked. Same way, Smith's drink should be checked.
So, option (C) is correct.

Question 10 |

Choose the correct expression for f(x) given in the graph.

f(x) = 2 - |x + 2| | |

f(x) = 2 + |x − 2| | |

f(x) = 2 - |x − 2| | |

f(x) = 2 + |x + 2| |
