QUESTION: 1

**Identify the correct spelling of the word.**

Solution:

The correct spelling of the word is 'definitive' which means '(of a conclusion or agreement) done or reached decisively and with authority.' Thus option 2 is the correct answer.

QUESTION: 2

This is the place that _______

Solution:

The preposition 'about' is mandatory here thus option 1 and 4 are eliminated. Option 2 is correct as the tense present perfect continuous fits here. It conveys the meaning that the person usually talked about the place.

QUESTION: 3

She is brave. Her brother is more brave.

Select the most suitable sentence with respect to grammar and usage.

Solution:

Options 1 and 2 are incorrect as they change the meaning of what is mentioned. Option 3 is incorrect as with 'less' we use the adjective in positive form and not comparative form. The correct word here should be 'brave.' Option 4 is thus the correct answer.

∴ Remainder = 3

QUESTION: 5

Complete the following sentence.

I was ___ ___ for the bus and then I ___ sight of Craig passing by.

Solution:

The word 'here' and 'there' both can be used here but should be followed with 'waiting' as no other word can fit here. The word 'caught' is correct here as 'catch a sight' means 'to see something.' Option 2 thus has the correct combination of words. The word 'cot' means 'a small bed with high barred sides for a baby or very young child.'

QUESTION: 6

4 – digit number greater than 5000 are randomly formed from the digits 0, 2, 3, 5 and 7. The probability of forming a number divisible by 5 when the digits are repeated is ______

Solution:

For a number to be greater than 5000, d_{1} should be filled with either 5 or 7

∴ Total numbers formed when the digits are repeated = 2 × 5 × 5 × 5 = 250

total cases = 250 -1 = 249 ( case of 5000 is not included)

Now, For the number to be divisible by 5, unit digit d_{4} should be either 0 or 5.

∴ Total no. of ways = 2 × 5 × 5 × 2 = 100

favorable cases = 100 - 1=9 ( 5000 is not included))

∴Required Probability =

QUESTION: 7

It is theoretically possible that bacteria developed on Venus early in its history and that some were carried to Earth by a meteorite. However, strains of bacteria from different planets would probably have substantial differences in protein structure that would persist over time, and no two bacterial strains on Earth are different enough to have arisen on different planets. So, even if bacteria did arrive on Earth from Venus, they must have died out.

The argument is most vulnerable to which of the following criticisms?

Solution:

The question asks which of the statements given in the options can weaken the argument put by the author that all bacteria from Venus must have died out.

The passage states that since there is a single strain of bacteria which exists on the Earth, they all must be belonging to the Earth or let's say a single planet. But here the author does not take into consideration (as can be argued from his theory) the fact that may be all the bacteria came from Venus and there are none which originally belong to the Earth. So this criticism as mentioned in option 3 makes the argument of the author vulnerable.

Options 1, 2 and 4 are completely irrelevant criticisms as they do not address the main argument. The argument claims that if there were Venusian bacteria on Earth, then they must have died out by now. Whether there are bacteria originally from Earth that have also disappeared from Earth is irrelevant to the question and has no effect on the given argument.

QUESTION: 8

A man sells three articles A, B, C and gains 10% on A, 20% on B and loses 10% on C. He breaks even when combined selling prices of A and C are considered, whereas he gains 5% when combined selling prices of B and C are considered. What is his net loss or gain on the sale of all the articles?

Solution:

Let a, b and c be the cost prices of the three articles A, B and C.

SP = CP + Profit (or) SP = CP – Loss

⇒ SP of A = 1.1a; SP of B = 1.2b; SP of C = 0.9c

By question,

1.1a + 0.9c = a + c ⇒ 0.1a = 0.1c ⇒ a = c

1.2b + 0.9c = 1.05(b + c) ⇒ 0.15b = 0.15c ⇒ b = c = a

Gain% = {(SP – CP)/CP} × 100

⇒ Net gain on the sale of all the articles =

∴ Net gain on the sale of all the articles = 6.66%

QUESTION: 9

Which of the following inferences can be drawn from the above graph?

Solution:

Option 1 is false as graph says there is decrease in students qualifying in Physics in 2015 compared to 2014.

Option 2

Let no. of students qualifying in Biology in 2013 be 100

⇒ No. of students qualifying in Biology in 2014 = 100 – 10% of 100 = 90

⇒ No. of students qualifying in Biology in 2015 = 90 + 10% of 100 = 99

∴ The number of students qualifying in Biology in 2015 is less than that in 2013

Option 3 and option 4 are incorrect since no detail is given regarding how many students qualified the subject in 2013.

QUESTION: 10

DRQP is a small square of side a in the corner of a big square ABCD of side A. What is the ratio of the area of the quadrilateral PBRQ to that of the square ABCD, given A/a = 3?

Solution:

Area of triangle PAB = Area of triangle RCB (By symmetry)

∴ Area of Δ PAB = ½ × PA × AB

= ½ × 2A/3 × A = A^{2}/3

Area of ΔRCB = A^{2}/3

Now, Area of ABCD = Area of DRQP + Area of PAB + Area of RCB + Area of PBRQ

A^{2} = a^{2} + A^{2}/3 + A^{2}/3 + Area of PBRQ

As, A/a = 3 ⇒ a = A/3

Area of PBRQ

⇒ Area of PBRQ =

QUESTION: 12

Let f(z) = (x^{2} + y^{2}) + i2xy and g(z) = 2xy + i(y^{2} – x^{2}) for z = x + iy ϵ C. Then, in the complex plane C.

Solution:

Given that f(z) = (x^{2} + y^{2}) + i 2xy

g(z) = 2xy + i (y^{2} – x^{2})

To check analyticity of a function, we need to check CR equations.

u_{x} = v_{y}, u_{y} = - v_{x}

f(z) = (x^{2} + y^{2}) + i 2xy

u = x^{2} + y^{2}, v = 2xy

u_{x }= 2_{x}

u_{y} = 2_{y}

v_{x} = 2_{y}

v_{y} = 2_{x}

u_{x} = v_{y} but u_{y} ≠ -v_{x}

Hence, f(z) is not analytic

g(z) = 2xy + i (y^{2} – x^{2})

u = 2xy, v = y^{2 }– x^{2}

u_{x} = 2y

u_{y} = 2x

v_{x} = -2x

v_{y} = 2y

u_{x} = v_{y} and u_{y} = -v_{x}

Hence g(z) is analytic.

QUESTION: 13

Consider the following statements P and Q:

(P) : IfM = then M is singular.

(Q): Let S be a diagonalizable matrix. If T is a matrix such that S + 5 T = I, then T is diagonalizable.

Which of the above statements hold TRUE?

Solution:

A matrix is said to be singular, if determinant of that matrix is zero.

= 1 (18 – 12) - 1 (9 – 4) + 1 (3 – 2)

= 6 – 5 + 1 = 2 ≠ 0

M is non singular

(Q) A matrix can be diagonalizable when it has distinct eigen values

S is a diagonalizable matrix. Hence, has distinct eigen values.

Let S be a 3 × 3 matrix and the eigen values of s are λ_{1}, λ_{2}, λ_{3}

Given that, S + 5T = I

From the properties of Eigen values,

(a) If λ_{1} is an eigen value of matrix A, then -λ_{1 }will be on eigen value of matrix -A.

(b) If λ_{1} is an eigen value of matrix A, then (λ_{1} + 1) will be an eigen value of matrix (A + I)

(c) If λ_{1} is an eigen value of matrix A, then will be an eigen value of matrix where K is a scalar.

From the above properties, eigen values of T are,

As λ_{1}, λ_{2}, λ_{3} are distinct values, λ′_{1},λ′_{2},λ′_{3} will be distinct.

Hence, matrix T is diagonalizable

So, only Q is true.

QUESTION: 14

Consider the differential equation

If x = 0 at t = 0 and x = 1 at t = 1, the value of x at t = 2 is

Solution:

= 0

A.E is, (D^{2} – 3D + 2) = 0

⇒ (D – 1) (D – 2) = 0

⇒ D = 1, 2

x(t) = C_{1}e^{t} + C_{2}e^{2t}

x = 0 at t = 0

⇒ 0 = C_{1} + C_{2} ⇒ C_{1} – C_{2}

x = 1 at t = 1

⇒ 1 = C_{1}e^{1} + C_{2}e^{2}

⇒ 1 = C_{1}e^{1} + (-C_{1}) e^{2}

⇒ C_{1}(e^{1} – e^{2}) = 1

x(2) = C_{1}e^{2} + C_{2}e^{4}

= e + e^{2}

QUESTION: 54

The power input in a three phase three wire delta connected balanced load is measured by the two wattmeter method. The reading of wattmeter A is 5000 W and wattmeter B is –1000 W (with reversal of connection) if the voltage of the circuit is 440 V, 50 Hz, what is the value of capacitance (in μF) connected in delta at the source to cause the whole of the power measured by the wattmeter A only.

Solution:

= 0.3592 lag

Now capacitance is connected at the source which does not affect the active power consumption

W = 5000 – 1000 = 4000 W

Before connecting capacitor

For delta V_{ph} = V_{L} = 440 V and I_{L} = √3 I_{ph}

i.e. I_{ph} = 8.4362 A

∴ R_{ph} = Z_{ph} cos ϕ = 18.735 Ω

X_{ph} = Z_{ph} sin ϕ = 48.67 Ω (inductive)

After connecting capacitor

W_{A} = W = 4000 W, W_{B} = 0

W_{B} = V_{L}I_{L} cos (30 + ϕ) = 0

30 + ϕ = 90°

ϕ = 60°

cos ϕ = cos 60° = 0.5 lagging

Due to pure capacitor, R_{ph} remain same

Consider the matrix equation

The condition for existence of a non-trivial solution, and the corresponding normalised solution (up to a sign) is

Solution:

For non-trivial solution, the rank of the matrix should be less than the number of variables. i.e. r < n.

For this, |A| = 0

⇒ (4c – 3b) – (2c – 6) + (b – 4) = 0

⇒ 4c – 3b – 2c + 6 + b – 4 = 0

⇒ 2c – 2b + 2 = 0

⇒ b = c + 1
