Q:

# A straight fence is to be constructed from posts 6 inches wide and separated by lengths of chain 5 feet long. If a certain fence begins and ends with a post, which of the following could be the length of the fence in feet? (12 inches = 1 foot).

 A) 17 B) 18 C) `19 D) 20

Explanation:

The fence will consist of one more post than there are chains. (e.g. P-c-P-c-P).

Therefore, a total length has to be a multiple of the length of the chain plus one post (5.5) plus one post extra.We have length = (5.5n + 0.5), where n can be any positive whole number. If n= 3, length =17

Q:

Which of the following is the largest?

 A) 12/49 B) 7/30 C) 13/56 D) 11/46

Explanation:

In the given options,

12/49 can be written as 1/(49/12) = 1/4.083

7/30 can be written as 1/(30/7) = 1/4.285

13/56 can be written as 1/(56/13) = 1/4.307

11/46 can be written as 1/(46/11) = 1/4.1818

Here in the above,

1/4.083 has the smallest denominator and so 12/49 is the largest number or fraction.

Q:

Which of the following is a rational number?

 A) 0.241 B) 1.732 C) 4 D) All of the above

Explanation:

Any number which can be expressed as a fraction of two integers like P & Q as P/Q where Q is not equal to zero.

Every integer is a rational number since Q can be 1.

Hence, in the given options, 4 can be expressed as a simple fraction as 4/1. And all other options cannot be expressed as fractions.

Hence, 4 is a rational number in the given options.

Q:

The product of a number and its multiplicative inverse is

 A) 1 B) 0 C) -1 D) Infinity

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.

Q:

25 divided by 7

 A) 3.571 B) 35.71 C) 0.351 D) 0.0357

Explanation:

Here we have 25 divided by 7.

25 will not go directly in 7

Hence, we get the result in decimals.

25/7 = 3.571.

Q:

Which of the following is not a prime number?

 A) 5 B) 11 C) 21 D) 37

Explanation:

A prime number is a whole number greater than 1 whose only factors are 1 and itself.

Factors of 5 are 1, 5

Factors of 11 are 1, 11

Factors of 21 are 1, 3, 7, 21

Factors of 37 are 1, 37.

Hence, according to the definition of a prime number, 21 is not a prime number as it has more than two factors.
