Q:

The sum of three consecutive multiples of 3 is 72. What is the second largest number ?

A) 27 B) 24
C) 21 D) 42
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 24

Explanation:

Let the numbers be 3x, 3x + 3 and 3x + 6.
Then,
3x + (3x + 3) + (3x + 6) = 72
9x = 63
x = 7
Largest number = 3x + 6 = 27.

=> Second largest number = 27 - 3 = 24

Q:

If x = √8 - √7, y = √6 - √5 and z = √10 - 3, which of the following is true  ?

A) x > y < z B) x < y < z
C) x > y > z D) z < x < y
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) z < x < y

Explanation:

x = √8 - √7 = 1/(√8 + √7) and y = √6 - √5 = 1/(√6 + √5) and z = √10 - 3 = 1/(√10 + 3)

As (√8 + √7) > (√6 + √5), (√8 - √7) < (√6 - √5)

As (√10 + 3) > (√8 + √7) > (√6 + √5)

z < x < y.
