Q:

In a Plane there are 37 straight lines, of which 13 pass through the point A and 11 pass through the point B. Besides, no three lines pass through one point, no lines passes through both points A and B , and no two are parallel. Find the number of points of intersection of the straight lines.

A) 525 B) 535
C) 545 D) 555

Answer:   B) 535



Explanation:

The number of points of intersection of 37 lines is . But 13 straight lines out of the given 37 straight lines pass through the same point A. Therefore instead of getting  points, we get only one point A. Similarly 11 straight lines out of the given 37 straight lines intersect at point B. Therefore instead of getting  points, we get only one point B.

Hence the number of intersection points of the lines is  = 535

  

Q:

If (1 × 2 × 3 × 4 ........ × n) = n!, then 15! - 14! - 13! is equal to ___?

A) 14 × 13 × 13! B) 15 × 14 × 14!
C) 14 × 12 × 12! D) 15 × 13 × 13!
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 15 × 13 × 13!

Explanation:

15! - 14! - 13!

= (15 × 14 × 13!) - (14 × 13!) - (13!)

= 13! (15 × 14 - 14 - 1)

= 13! (15 × 14 - 15)

= 13! x 15 (14 - 1)

= 15 × 13 × 13!

Q:

To fill 8 vacancies there are 15 candidates of which 5 are from ST. If 3 of the vacancies are reserved for ST candidates while the rest are open to all, Find the number of ways in which the selection can be done ?

A) 7920 B) 74841
C) 14874 D) 10213
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 7920

Explanation:

ST candidates vacancies can be filled by 5C3 ways = 10

Remaining vacancies are 5 that are to be filled by 12

=> 12C5 = (12x11x10x9x8)/(5x4x3x2x1) = 792

Total number of filling the vacancies = 10 x 792 = 7920

 Which of the following is/are correct ?

A) F is third to the left of B B) F is second to the right of B
C) B is an immediate neighbour of D D) All of the above
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) F is second to the right of B

Explanation:

From the given information, the circular arrangement is

EXP.

Here F is second to the right of B and the remaning all are wrong.

C) 15120 D) 0
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 43929

Explanation:

Number of words with 5 letters from given 9 alphabets formed =

Number of words with 5 letters from given 9 alphabets formed such that no letter is repeated is = 

Number of words can be formed which have at least one letter repeated =  -  

= 59049 - 15120

= 43929
