Equation of circle is

It passes through point P

t4 +t2 (8k- 28) + 8k2 - 128k + 256 = 0
For t = ⇒  k2 - 16k+ 32 = 0
k = 8±4√2

(14 - 4k )2+ (14 - 4k ) (8k - 28) + 8k2 -128k + 256 = 0
2k2 +4k-15 = 0

From (iii) & (iv),

But from options, r = 4(√2-1)

QUESTION: 86

A box contains 15 green and 10 yellow balls. If 10 balls are randomly drawn, one-by-one, with replacement, then the variance of the number of green balls drawn is

Solution:

n = 10
p(Probability of drawing a green ball) = 15/25

QUESTION: 87

The eccentricity of an ellipse whose centre is at the origin is 1/2. If one of its directrices is x = – 4, then
the equation of the normal to it at  is

Solution:

x = –4

-a= -4 x e
a = 2
Now,  b2 =a2 (1- e2 ) = 3
Equation to ellipse

Equation of normal is

QUESTION: 88

If two different numbers are taken from the set {0, 1, 2, 3, ......, 10}; then the probability that their sum as well as absolute difference are both multiple of 4, is

Solution:

Total number of ways = 11C2 = 55
Favourable ways are
(0, 4), (0, 8), (4, 8), (2, 6), (2, 10), (6, 10)
Probability = 6/55

QUESTION: 89

For three events A, B and C, P (Exactly one of A or B occurs) = P(Exactly one of B or C occurs) = P (Exactly one of C or A occurs) = 1/4 and P(All the three events occur simultaneously) = 1/16 Then the probability that at least one of the events occurs, is

Solution:

QUESTION: 90

,then adj (3A2 + 12A) is equal to

Solution:

= (2 – 2λ- λ + λ2 ) - 12
f (λ)= λ2 - 3λ - 10
∵ A satisfies f (λ )
∴ A2 – 3A –10I = 0
A2 – 3A = 10I
3A2 – 9A = 30I
3A2 + 12A = 30I + 21A
