Question 3.

If the H.C.F of 65 and 117 is expressible in the form of 65m – 117 , then the value of m is

(1) 4

(2) 2

(3) 1

(4) 3

Answer:

(2) 2

Hint:

H.C.F. of 65 and 117

117 = 65 × 1 + 52

65 = 52 × 1 + 13

52 = 13 × 4 + 0

∴ 13 is the H.C.F. of 65 and 117.

65m – 117 = 65 × 2 – 117

130 – 117 = 13

∴ m = 2

(1) 1

(2) 2

(3) 3

(4) 4

Answer:

Hint:

1729 = 7^{1} × 13^{1} × 19^{1
}

(1) 2025

(2) 5220

(3) 5025

(4) 2520

Answer:

(4) 2520

Hint:

∴ L.C.M. of 1,2,3,4,…,10 is 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 7 × 2 × 3 = 2520

(1) 1

(2) 2

(3) 3

(4) 4

Answer:

(1) 1

Hint:

7^{4k} ≡______ (mod 100)

y^{4k} ≡ y^{4 × 1} = 1 (mod 100)

Question 7.

Given F_{1} = 1, F_{2} = 3 and Fn = F_{n-1} + F_{n-2} then

(1) 3

(2) 5

(3) 8

(4) 11

Answer:

(4) 11

Answer:

F_{1} = 1, F_{2} = 3

F_{n} = F_{n-1} + F_{n-2}

F_{5} = F_{5-1} + F_{5-2} = F_{4} + F_{3}

= F_{3} + F_{2} + F_{2} + F_{1}

= F_{2} + F_{1} + F_{2} + F_{2} + F_{1}

= 3 + 1 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 11

Question 8.

The first term of an arithmetic progression is unity and the common difference is 4. Which of the following will be a term of this A.P

(1) 4551

(2) 10091

(3) 7881

(4) 13531

Answer:

(3) 7881

Hint:

t_{1} = 1

d = 4

t_{n} = a + (n – 1)d

= 1 + 4n – 4

4n – 3 = 4551

4n = 4554

n = will be a fraction

It is not possible.

4n – 3 = 10091

4n = 10091 + 3 = 10094

n = a fraction

4n – 3 = 7881

4n = 7881 + 3 = 7884

n is a fraction.

∴ 7881 will be 1971th term of A.P.

Question 9.

If 6 times of 6^{th} term of an A.P is equal to 7 times the 7th term, then the 13th term of the A.P. is

(1) 0

(2) 6

(3) 7

(4) 13

Answer:

(1) 0

Hint:

6t_{6} = 7t_{7}

6(a + 5d) = 7(a + 6d)

6a + 30d = 7a + 42d

7a + 42d – 6a – 30d = 0

a + 12d = 0 = t_{13}

Question 10.

An A.P consists of 31 terms. If its 16th term is m, then the sum of all the terms of this A.P. is

(1) 16 m

(2) 62 m

(3) 31 m

(4) \(\frac { 31 }{ 2 } \) m

Answer:

(3) 31 m

Hint:

t_{16} = m

S_{31} = \(\frac { 31 }{ 2 } \) (2a + 30d)

= \(\frac { 31 }{ 2 } \) (2(a + 15d))

(∵ t_{16} = a + 15d)

= 31(t_{16}) = 31m

Question 11.

In an A.P., the first term is 1 and the common difference is 4. How many terms of the A.P must be taken for their sum to be equal to 120?

(1) 6

(2) 7

(3) 8

(4) 9

Answer:

(3) 8

Hint:

Question 12.

If A = 2^{65} and B = 2^{64} + 2^{63} + 2^{62} + +2^{0} which of the following is true?

(1) B is 264 more than A

(2) A and B are equal

(3) B is larger than A by 1

(4) A is larger than B by 1

Answer:

(4) A is larger than B by 1

Hint:

A = 2^{65}

B = 2^{64} + 2^{63} + 2^{62} + … + 20

B = 2^{0} + 2^{1} + 2^{2} + … + 264

G.P = 1 + 2^{1} + 2^{2} + … + 2^{64} it is a G.P

Here a = 1, r = 2, n = 65

A = 2^{65}, B = 2^{65} – 1

∴ B is smaller.

A is larger than B by 1.

Question 13.

The next term of the sequence \(\frac { 3 }{ 16 } \),\(\frac { 1 }{ 8 } \),\(\frac { 1 }{ 12 } \),\(\frac { 1 }{ 18 } \), ….

(1) \(\frac { 1 }{ 24 } \)

(2) \(\frac { 1 }{ 27 } \)

(3) \(\frac { 2 }{ 3 } \)

(4) \(\frac { 1 }{ 81 } \)

Answer:

(2) \(\frac { 1 }{ 27 } \)

Hint:

Question 14.

If the sequence t_{1},t_{2},t_{3} … are in A.P. then the sequence t_{6},t_{12},t_{18} … is

(1) a Geometric Progression

(2) an Arithmetic Progression

(3) neither an Arithmetic Progression nor a Geometric Progression

(4) a constant sequence

Answer:

(2) an Arithmetic Progression

Hint:

If t_{1}, t_{2}, t_{3}, … is 1, 2, 3, …

If t_{6} = 6, t_{12} = 12, t_{18} = 18 then 6, 12, 18 … is an arithmetic progression
