Q:

 What is the greatest of 3 consecutive integers whose sum is 24 ?

A) 6 B) 7
C) 8 D) 9
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 9

Explanation:

The sum of three consecutive integers can be written as n + (n + 1) + (n + 2) = 3n + 3

If the sum is 24, we need to solve the equation 3n + 3 = 24;

=> 3n = 21;

=> n = 7

The greatest of the three numbers is therefore 7 + 2 = 9

Q:

If x is a whole number, then x²(x² - 1) is always divisible by ?

A) 4 B) 8
C) 12 D) None
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) 12

Explanation:

we can do this by trial and error method.

Putting x = 2,we get 2²(2² - 1) = 12.
checking with other integers, the above equation always gives a value which is a multiple of 12,
So, x²(x² - 1) is always divisible by 12.

Q:

n is a whole number which when divided by 4 gives 3 as remainder. What will be the remainder when 2*n is divided by 4 ?

A) 3 B) 2
C) 1 D) 0
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 2

Explanation:

Let n=4*q + 3. Then, 2*n = 8*q + 6 = 4(2*q + 1) + 2.
Thus when 2*n is divided by 4, the reminder is 2.

Q:

The product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is

A) 1 B) 0
C) -1 D) Infinity
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 1

Explanation:

The mutiplicative inverse of a number is nothing but a reciprocal of a number.

Now, the product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is always equal to 1.

 

For example :

Let the number be 15

Multiplicative inverse of 15 = 1/15

The product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is = 15 x 1/15 = 1.
