A survey was done in a small area in which voters were men andvoters were women.
Read the above statement carefully and answer the following :
Find x, if number of men is equal to number of women.
(a) 6
(b) 5
(c) 8
(d) 9
Sol:
Correct Answer is Option (c)
∴
⇒
⇒
⇒ 9 + 2x – 5 =
⇒ 4 + 2x =
Squaring both sides,
(4 + 2x)^{2} =
⇒ 16 + 4x^{2} + 16x = 18x + 4x^{2}
⇒ 16 = 2x
⇒ x = 8

Q. a^{p} . a^{q} =
(a) a^{p + q}
(b) a^{p – q}
(c) a^{pq}
(d) (pq)^{a}
Sol:
_{Correct Answer is Option (a)}
_{a}^{p + q}
_{a}^{p}_{ . a}^{q}_{ = a}^{p + q}

Read the above statement carefully and answer the following :
Q. If r is rational and s is irrational, then which statement is false?
(a) r + s is irrational number.
(b) r – s is rational number.
(c) rs is irrational number.
(d) r/s is irrational number.
Sol:
Correct Answer is Option (b)
r – s is rational number.
Reason : This statement is false. The difference between a rational number (r) and an irrational number (s) can be either rational or irrational. There is no general rule that says the difference of a rational and an irrational number must be rational. Counterexamples can easily be constructed to show that the difference could be either rational or irrational.
Q6: In a school 5 out of every 7 children participated in ‘Save wild life’ campaign organised by the school authorities.
What is the value of 5/7 ?
(a)
(b) 1.4
(c) 1.414
(d) 1.7142
Sol:
Correct Answer is Option (a)
5 ÷ 7 =
Q7: In a school 5 out of every 7 children participated in ‘Save wild life’ campaign organised by the school authorities.
How many rational numbers are there between 5 and 7.
(a) 0
(b) 1
(c) 2
(d) infinite
Sol:
Correct Answer is Option (d)
There are an infinite amount of irrational numbers between 5 and 7.
Q8:In a school 5 out of every 7 children participated in ‘Save wild life’ campaign organised by the school authorities.
What fraction of the students participated in the campaign.
(a) 2/7
(b) 5/7
(c) 4/7
(d) 7/7
Sol:
Correct Answer is Option (b)
Number of students participated in campaign = 5
Number of total students = 7
Therefore, fraction of the students participated in the campaign. = 5/7
Q9:In a school 5 out of every 7 children participated in ‘Save wild life’ campaign organised by the school authorities.
What kind of decimal expansion it has.
(a) Terminating
(b) non terminating
(c) terminating repeating
(d) non terminating repeating
Sol:
Correct Answer is Option (d)
A nonterminating, nonrepeating decimal is a decimal number that continues endlessly, with no group of digits repeating endlessly. Decimals of this type cannot be represented as fractions, and as a result are irrational numbers. Nonterminating, nonrepeating decimals can be easily created by using a pattern.
Q10:In a school 5 out of every 7 children participated in ‘Save wild life’ campaign organised by the school authorities.
Every rational number is a _______ number.
(a) Prime
(b) Composite
(c) real
(d) even
Sol:
Correct Answer is Option (c)
Every rational number is a real number.
It can be defined as any number that can be expressed in the p/q form where q ≠ 0. We can also say that any fraction falls under the class of rational numbers, where the denominator and numerator are integers and the denominator is not equal to zero.
