4. The inequality of b^{2} + 8b > 9b + 14 can be removed if —–

a) b> 5, b< -5

**b) b> 5, b< – 4 (Ans)**

c) b > 6, b< -6

d) b > 4, b < -4

**Explanation** : b^{2} + 8b – 9b – 14 > 0

b^{2} -b – 14 > 0

b^{2} – b + 1/4 > 14 +1/4

(b-1/2) > + √57/2

b> 1 + 7.55

2

> 4.28 or – 3.28

:. b > 5 or b < – 4

5. If the radius of the base and the height of a right circular cone are increased by 20%, then what is the approximate percentage increase in volume ?

a) 60

b) 68

**c) 73 (Ans)**

d) 75

**Explanation** : 2a + b + a^{2} +2ab + a^{2}b (Here a = 20=b)

100 10000

= 2 x 20 + 20+ (20)^{2} + 2 x 20 x 20 + (20)^{2} x 20

100 10000

= 40 + 20 + 1200 + 8000

100 10000

= 72.8 = 73 (Approx.)

**a) 3:2 (Ans)**

b) 2:3

c) 3:4

d) Data inadequate

**Directions (Q.11-15)** Each of the question below consists of a question and three statements numbered I, II and III. You have to decide which of the statements are sufficient to answer the question.

11. What will be difference between the ages of P and Q after 6 years ?

(i) The ratio between the present ages of P and Q is 3:5

(ii) The ratio between the present age of P and his age after 6 years is 3:4

(iii) The ratio between the present age of Q and his age after 6 years is 5:6

**a) Any two of the above statements together are necessary (Ans)**

b) All the three statements together are necessary

c) Only (i) and (ii) together are necessary

d) Only (i) and (iii) together are necessary

**Explanation** : The equations from the three given statements are :

P = 3

Q 5 —-(i)

P = 3

P + 6 4 —-(ii)

and Q = 5

Q+ 67 6 —-(iii)

:. From any two equations the value of P and Q can be determined and then their difference can be calculated .

12. What is the speed of moving train ?

(i) This train crosses another train coming from opposite direction in 72 seconds

(ii) The length of the first train is 100 metres

(iii) The length of the second train is 180 metres

a) All the three statements together are necessary

**b) All the three statements together are not sufficient (Ans)**

c) Only (ii) and (iii) together are necessary

d) Only (i) and (ii) together are necessary

**Explanation** : As the speed of first train is not given, so the speed of second train cannot be found

13. What was Q’s share in the money ?

a) P received Rs.1200 more than R

b) Q received Rs.800 more than P

c) R received Rs.1600

a) Only statements (i) and (ii) together are necessary

b) Statements (i) and (ii) or (iii) are necessary

**c) All the three statements together are necessary (Ans)**

d) All the three statements together are not sufficient

**Explanation** : The equations from the given statements are : R = 1600

P-R = 1200

and Q-P = 800

:. In order to find the value of Q, all the equations are necessary.

14. What sum of money did Prakash borrow from Arun ?

(i) Arun received Rs.6400 from Prakash after 8 years as S.I.

(ii) Prakash invested 50% of the borrowed money and received Rs.8000 in return of this investment

a) Only statements (i) and (ii) together are necessary

**b) Only statements (i) and (iii) together are necessary (Ans)**

c) All the three statements together are necessary

d) All the three statements together are not sufficient

**Explanation** : From statement (i) 6400 = X x 8 x r

100

Hence, the value x can be obtained from statements (i) and (iii)
