1. A tractor travelled a distance 5 m. What is the radius of the rear wheel? I. The front wheel rotates 'N' times more than the rear wheel over this distance. Il. The circumference of the rear wheel is 't' times that of the front whee 2. What is the ratio of the two liquids A and B in the mixture finally, if these tweo liquids kept in three vessels are mixed together? (The containers are of equal volume.) I. The ratio of liquid A to liquid B in the first and second vessel is 3: 5, 2 : 3 respectively. II. The ratio of liquid A to liquid B in vessel 3 is 4:3. 3. If a, b and c are integers, is (a - bc)> (a+ b c)? I. b is negative. Il c is positive

4. If and are the roots of the equation (ax2 + bx + c = 0), then what is the value of ( 2 + 2)? I. a+B- (b/a) 11.2 (c / a) 5. What is the cost price of the article? Il. The selling price is three-fourths of the cost price. 6. What is the selling price of the article? After selling the article, a loss of 25% on cost price is incurred. The profit on sales is 20% 11. The profit on each unit is 25% and the cost price is Rs.250. 7. How many different triangles can be formed? I. There are 16 coplanar, straight lines. I No two lines are parallel

ANSWER THE FOLLOWING: 4. If and are the roots of the equation (ax2 + bx + c-0), then what is the value of ( 2 + 2)? I, + --(b/a) ll. 2 -(c / a) a. cannot be answered even with the help of both the statements taken together. b. if the question can be answered by any one of the two statements. c. if each statement alone is sufficient to answer the question, but not the other one d. if both statements I and II together are needed to answer the question.

ANSWER THE FOLLOWING: 4. If and are the roots of the equation (ax2 + bx + c ( 2+ 2)? l. a B(b / a) II. 2aB (c/ a) 0), then what is the value of a. cannot be answered even with the help of both the statements taken together. b. if the question can be answered by any one of the two statements. c. if each statement alone is sufficient to answer the question, but not the other one d. if both statements I and II together are needed to answer the question. Solution: Statement I is derived from the question itself and hence is not sufficient to answer the question. Statement Il is incorrect. It is contradictory to the well known fact i.e. _ (c/a) Hence, the question cannot be answered even with both the statements. Answer: Option (a).

ANSWER THE FOLLOWING: 5. What is the cost price of the article? l. After selling the article, a loss of 25% on cost price is incurred. II. The selling price is three-fourths of the cost price. a. cannot be answered even with the help of both the statements taken together. b. if the question can be answered by any one of the two statements. c. if each statement alone is sufficient to answer the question, but not the other one d. if both statements I and Il together are needed to answer the question. Solution: Both the statements are telling the same, that selling price is 75% of cost price So we cannot determine the actual cost of the article. Answer: Option (a).

ANSWER THE FOLLOWING: 6. What is the selling price of the article? The profit on sales is 20%. The profit on each unit is 25% and the cost price is Rs.250. 11. a. cannot be answered even with the help of both the statements taken together. b. if the question can be answered by any one of the two statements. c. if each statement alone is sufficient to answer the question, but not the other one d. if both statements I and II together are needed to answer the question. Solution: By using statement II we can determine the selling price of the article. Selling price: 1.25% 250 312.5 But by using statement I we cannot determine the selling price. Answer: Option (c).
