Mark the correct alternative in each of the following: 
 
1. Which of the following statement is true? 
(a) - 7 > - 5              (b) - 7 < - 5                 (c) (- 7) + (- 5) > 0                       (d) (- 7) - (- 5) > 0 
Solution: 
 
The option (b) is correct answer. 
In option (a)  
We know that - 7 is to the left of – 5 
Hence, - 7 < - 5. 
In option (c)  
We know that (- 7) + (- 5) = - (7 + 5) = - 12. 
So - 12 is to the left of 0 
Hence (- 7) + (- 5) < 0. 
In option (d) 
(- 7) - (- 5) = (- 7) + (additive inverse of - 5) = (- 7) + (5) = - (7 - 5) = - 2 
We know that - 2 is to the left of 0, so (- 7) - (- 5) < 0. 
 
2. 5 less than - 2 is 
(a) 3                            (b) - 3                        (c) - 7                                 (d) 7 
Solution: 
 
The option (c) is correct answer.

Solution: 
 
The option (b) is correct answer. 
We know that, 6 more than - 7 = (- 7) + 6 = - (7 - 6) = - 1 
 
4. If x is a positive integer, then 
(a) x + |x| = 0              (b) x - |x| = 0                    (c) x + |x| = -2x                (d) x = - |x| 
Solution: 
 
The option (b) is correct answer. 
We know that if x is positive integer, then |x| = x  
Hence, x + |x| = x + x = 2x and x - |x| = x - x = 0 
 
5. If x is a negative integer, then 
(a) x + |x| = 0              (b) x - |x| = 0                    (c) x + |x| = 2x                (d) x - |x| = - 2x 
Solution: 
 
The option (a) is correct answer. 
We know that x is negative integer, then |x| = -x 
It can be written as 
x + |x| = x - x = 0 and x - |x| = x - (- x) = x + x = 2x

By subtracting 12 and 7 from 64 and 72  
We get  
64 - 12 = 52 and 72 - 7 = 65 
So the required number is the HCF of 52 and 65. 
It can be written as 
52 = 4 × 13 and 65 = 5 × 13 
HCF of 52 and 65 = 13

It can be written as 86 + (-28) + 12 + (-34) = 86 + (-28) - (34 - 12) = 86 + (-28) - 22 
On further calculation 
86 + (-28) + 12 + (-34) = (86 - 28) - (34 - 12) = (86 - 28) - 22 = 58 - 22 = 36 
 
24. (-12) × (-9) - 6 × (-8) is equal to 
(a) 156                             (b) 60                                (c) -156                                    (d) – 60 
Solution: 
 
The option (a) is correct answer. 
It can be written as (-12) × (-9) - 6 × (-8) = (12 × 9) - 6 × (-8) = 108 - 6 × (-8)  
On further calculation 
(-12) × (-9) - 6 × (-8) = 108 + 6 × 8 = 108 + 48 = 156
