SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 1

### Two medians QT and RS of the ΔPQR intersect at G at right angles. If QT = 18 cm and RS = 27 cm, then the length of QS (in cm) is :

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 1

Given:

The medians QT and RS intersect at right angles.

QT = 18 cm, RS = 27 cm

The two medians intersect at G. Hence G is the centroid of the triangle and the centroid divides the median in the ratio 2 : 1

∴ QG : GT = 2 : 1 ⇒ QG = 18 ×  = 12 cm

Also, RG : GS = 2 : 1 ⇒ GS = 27 × = 9 cm

∴ In ΔGQS, ∠QGS = 90° (∵ medians intersect at 90°)

Using Pythagoras theorem,

∴ The length of QS = 15 cm.

SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 2

### The sum of all possible products taken two at a time out of the numbers is:

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 2

SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 3

### If a nine digit number 698x3291y is divisible by 99, then the value of ?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 3

Given:
698x3291y is a 9-digit number divisible by 99.

As we know,
To check the divisibility by 9, the sum of the digits of the number of should be multipole of 9.
To check the divisibility by 11, the difference of the sum of the digits at the unit's place and the ten's place of the number should be 0 or a multiple of 11.
The number is divisible by 99 means that the number is divisible by 11 and 9 (factor of 99 ).

Divisibility by 9,
The sum of the digits of the number should be a multiple of 9
⇒ 6 + 9 + 8 + x + 3 + 2 + 9 + 1 + y
⇒ for the above expression to be a multiple of 9, the value of x + y = 7      ---(1)

Divisibility by 11,
(6 + 8 + 3 + 9 + y) - (9 + x + 2 + 1)
⇒ 26 + y - 12 - x
⇒ (14 + y - x) → this should be either 0 or a multiple of 11
⇒ Lets take (14 + y - x) = 0
⇒ x - y = 14, but on solving this with equation (1), this will not give the integer value of x
So, 14 + y - x = 11 ⇒ x - y = 3      ---(2)
On solving (1) and (2),
x = 5 and y = 2
∴ The given nine-digit number is 698532912
Now,

∴ The value of the given expression is 9.

SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 4

The sum of two numbers is 23 and their product is 216. Find the sum of their squares.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 4

Given,

Sum of two numbers is 23.

The product of two numbers is 216.

As we know,

a2 + b2 = (a + b)2 - 2ab

Let p and q be the numbers

p + q = 23

pq = 216

By using the above formula

p+ q2 = (23)2 - 2 × 216

p2 + q2 = 529 - 432 = 97

The sum of the squares of the number is 97.

SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 9

In the following question, select the one which is different from the other three responses.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL English (Tier II) Mock Test - 7 - Question 9

The pattern is as follows:

Z - Y = A i.e.26 – 25 = 1 (the positional value of A)

Z - O = K i.e.26 – 15 = 11(the positional value of K)

Z - K = O i.e.26 – 11 = 15 (the positional value of O)

Z - I ≠ N i.e.26 – 9 = 17 ≠ 14 (the positional value of N)

Therefore, ZIN is the different one.
