(I) Sum of the squares of the first and the second term is 116.

(II)The fifth term is divisible by 7.

A) Only a is sufficient B) Only b is sufficient
C) Both a & b are necessary D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) Only a is sufficient

Explanation:

The sum of square of two no is 116 i.e no lie 1-11, because 11x11 =121 which is greater than 116
again after cheaking all possible pair of no only 4 and 10 satisfy this condsn , again the progression is of positive integer so 10 cant not be 1st term
so the 1st term is 4,
but from the 2nd we cant able to find the 1st term

so only 1st statement is sufficient to answer the question

Q:

Statement :

The byproducts obtained from animals such as hairs, skins, horns, etc. contain at least 45 per cent food protein. Indian scientists have developed methods to segregate 50 per cent of this protein. They have used an enzyme developed in Russia for destruction of soya-proteins.

Conclusions:

A. Indian scientists cannot develop enzymes.

B. If a suitable method involving less cost is developed then many more food protein would be obtained.

A) Only A follows B) Only B follows
C) Neither A nor B follows D) Both A & B follows
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Neither A nor B follows

Explanation:

There is no indication that Indian scientists are incapable of developing enzymes. There could be any number of reasons why Indian scientists used Russian enzymes.

So conclusion A does not follow.

In addition, cost is not discussed in the passage at all. There is no mention of a correlation between cost and extraction of proteins.
