Q:

# The following question is based on the given data for an examination.A. Candidates appeared                 10500B. Passed in all the five subjects     5685C. Passed in three subjects only     1498D. Passed in two subjects only       1250E. Passed in one subject only           835F. Failed in English only                       78G. Failed in Maths only                      275H. Failed in Physics only                    149I. Failed in Chemistry only                147J. Failed in Biology only                     221How many candidates passed in at least four subjects ?

 A) 6555 B) 5685 C) 1705 D) 870

Explanation:

Candidates passed in atleast four subjects

= (Candidates passed in 4 subjects) + (Candidates Passed in all 5 subjects)

= (Candidates failed in only 1 subject ) + ( Candidates passed in all subjects)

= (78 + 275 + 149 + 147 + 221) + 5685 = 870 + 5685 = 6555

Q:

Negative plus a positive equals

 A) negative B) positive C) zero D) Can't be determined

Explanation:

We know that a negative value plus a positive value always count backward and the sign depends on the bigger value sign.

When you are adding a negative number to a positive number, then the value counts backward and takes the sign of the biggest number.

For example::

-5 + 2 = -3 (big number is 5 and its sign is '-')

+5 + (-3) = 5 - 3 = +2(big number is 5 and it has sign '+').

Q:

6 choose 3 =

 A) 20 B) 30 C) 18 D) 24

Explanation:

6 choose 3 means number of possible unordered combinations when 3 items are selected from 6 available items i.e, nothing but 6C3.

Now 6C3 = 6 x 5 x 4/3 x 2 x 1 = 120/6 = 20.

Q:

Which of the following is a Composite number?

 A) 0 B) 19 C) 29 D) 91

Explanation:

Here in the given numbers 91 is a Composite number. Since it has factors of 7 and 13 other than 1 and itself.

Composite Numbers :

A composite number is a positive integer which is not prime (i.e., which has factors other than 1 and itself).

Examples :: 4, 6, 8, 12, 14, 15, 18, 20, ...

Q:

What is the value of a two–digit number?

A. The sum of the digits is 15.
B. The difference of the squares of the digits is 45.
C. The difference of their digits is 3.

 A) B and C together are sufficient B) Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient C) C and A together are sufficient D) A and B together are sufficient

Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient

Explanation:

From the given data,

Let the two gits of a number be x & y

A) x + y = 15

B)

(x+y) (x - y) = 45

C) x - y = 3

From any 2 of the given 3 statements, we can find that 2 digit number as

2x = 18 => x = 9

=> y = 6

Hence, 2 digit number is 96.

Any one pair of A and B, B and C or C and A is sufficient to find.

Q:

How can we get 24 as an answer by using 6, 11, 3 and 9?

This can be solved in two ways using only 6, 11, 9 and 3 we must get 24.

1. {[(11–6) x 3] + 9}

By solving this we get

5 x 3 + 9 = 15 + 9 = 24.

2. [(9–6) x (11–3)]

= 3 x 8 = 24.

Q:

Are Alternate Exterior Angles congruent?

 A) TRUE B) FALSE

Explanation:

We know that,

Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem::

The Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem states that, when two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, the resulting alternate exterior angles are congruent .

Converse of the Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem ::

Converse of the Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem states that, If two lines are cut by a transversal and the alternate exterior angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel.
