Differences between any two of them are given in the diagram below. (2014) Q. If the value of A is known then how many distinct values are possible for J?

Solution:

The table below gives all the possible values of B, C, D, E, F, G, H, l and J if the value of A is assumed to be 'x'

Clearly, if the value of A is known then 19 distinct values are possible for J.

QUESTION: 2

### Directions for Question: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below. There are ten real numbers A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I. Differences between any two of them are given in the diagram below. (2014) Q. If all the 10 numbers from A to J are positive integers then at least how many of them are even?

Solution:

The table below gives all the possible values of B, C, D, E, F, G, H, l and J if the value of A is assumed to be 'x'

If, 'x' is even then A D. G and J are even. If 'x' is odd then B, C E F, H and I are even.
So, four numbers A, D, G and J are even.

QUESTION: 3

### Directions for Question: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below. There are ten real numbers A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I. Differences between any two of them are given in the diagram below. (2014) Q. If all the 10 numbers from A to J are positive integers and A is equal to 1 then at a time at most how many of them can be perfect squares?

Solution:

The table below gives all the possible values of B, C, D, E, F, G, H, l and J if the value of A is assumed to be 'x'

If x = 1, then a possibility is that B = 2, C = 4, D = 1, E = 2, F = 4, G = 1, H = 2,  I = 4 and J = 1 in which case 7 values are perfect squares.
This is the maximum number of perfect squares which can occur at the same time i.e. in a single case.

After decrease by 10% = 1393 crore.
Total cost = (1396 + 140) = 1536 crore
After increasing by 10%
Hence, net profit = (1393 – 1536) = – 143 crore
