Question 1 of 20
1. Question
In an AP, the first term is 2 and the sum of the first five terms is onefourth of the next five terms. The 20^{th}term is
Correct
Let AP series is a, a + d, a + 2d, a + 3d, ……
Now, given a = 2
According to the given condition,
Sum of first five terms = 1/4 (Sum of next five terms)
⇒ a + (a + d) + (a + 2d) + (a + 3d) + (a + 4d)
= 1/4 [a + 5d + a + 6d + a + 7d + a + 8d + a + 9d]
⇒ 5a + 10d = 1/4 (5a + 35d)
⇒ 4(5a + 10d) = 5a + 35d
⇒ 20a + 40d = 5a + 35d ⇒ 20a – 5a = 35d – 40d
⇒ 15a = 5d
⇒ 15 × 2 = 5d
⇒ 30 5d (∵ a = 2)
Now, T_{n} = a + (n – 1)d
⇒ T_{20} = 2 + (20 – 1)(6) = 2 + 19 (6)
= 2 – 19 × 6 = 2 – 114 = 112
Incorrect
Let AP series is a, a + d, a + 2d, a + 3d, ……
Now, given a = 2
According to the given condition,
Sum of first five terms = 1/4 (Sum of next five terms)
⇒ a + (a + d) + (a + 2d) + (a + 3d) + (a + 4d)
= 1/4 [a + 5d + a + 6d + a + 7d + a + 8d + a + 9d]
⇒ 5a + 10d = 1/4 (5a + 35d)
⇒ 4(5a + 10d) = 5a + 35d
⇒ 20a + 40d = 5a + 35d ⇒ 20a – 5a = 35d – 40d
⇒ 15a = 5d
⇒ 15 × 2 = 5d
⇒ 30 5d (∵ a = 2)
Now, T_{n} = a + (n – 1)d
⇒ T_{20} = 2 + (20 – 1)(6) = 2 + 19 (6)
= 2 – 19 × 6 = 2 – 114 = 112

Question 2 of 20
2. Question
Number of identical terms in the sequence 2, 5, 8, 11, ……upto 100 terms and 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, …. upto 100 terms are
Correct
Common terms are 5, 11, 17, ….
∴ n^{th} term of common sequence
t_{n} = 5 + (n – 1)6 = (6n – 1)
Also 100^{th} terms of the first sequence
= 2 + (100 – 1)3 = 299
and 100^{th} term of the second sequence
= 3 + (100 – 1)2 = 201
⇒ t_{n} ≤ 201
⇒ 6n – 1 ≤ 201
⇒ n ≤ 33
∴ n = 33 (∵ n ∈ N)
Incorrect
Common terms are 5, 11, 17, ….
∴ n^{th} term of common sequence
t_{n} = 5 + (n – 1)6 = (6n – 1)
Also 100^{th} terms of the first sequence
= 2 + (100 – 1)3 = 299
and 100^{th} term of the second sequence
= 3 + (100 – 1)2 = 201
⇒ t_{n} ≤ 201
⇒ 6n – 1 ≤ 201
⇒ n ≤ 33
∴ n = 33 (∵ n ∈ N)

Question 3 of 20

If the pth, qth, rth terms of GP are a, b and c respectively, then a^{qr} b^{rp} c^{pq} is equal to
Correct
Let the first term of GP is A and common ratio is R.
Given, pth term = T_{p} = a ⇒ AR^{p1} = a …….(i)
qth term = T_{q} = b ⇒ AR^{q}^{ – 1} = b …….(ii)
rth term = T_{r} = c ⇒ AR^{r1} = c …….(iii)
∴ a^{qr} b^{r}^{p} c^{p}^{a}
= (AR^{p1})^{qr }(AP^{q1})rp (AR^{r1})^{pq}
= A^{qr}R^{(p1)(qr)}A^{rp} R^{(q1)(rp)} A^{p}^{q} R^{(r1)(pq)}
= A^{q}^{r+rp+pq} R^{(p1)(qr) + (q1)(rp) + (r1)(pq)}
= A^{0} R^{pqpr}^{q+r+qrpq+r+p+rprqp+q}
= A^{0} R^{0} = 1
Incorrect
Let the first term of GP is A and common ratio is R.
Given, pth term = T_{p} = a ⇒ AR^{p1} = a …….(i)
qth term = T_{q} = b ⇒ AR^{q}^{ – 1} = b …….(ii)
rth term = T_{r} = c ⇒ AR^{r1} = c …….(iii)
∴ a^{qr} b^{r}^{p} c^{p}^{a}
= (AR^{p1})^{qr }(AP^{q1})rp (AR^{r1})^{pq}
= A^{qr}R^{(p1)(qr)}A^{rp} R^{(q1)(rp)} A^{p}^{q} R^{(r1)(pq)}
= A^{q}^{r+rp+pq} R^{(p1)(qr) + (q1)(rp) + (r1)(pq)}
= A^{0} R^{pqpr}^{q+r+qrpq+r+p+rprqp+q}
= A^{0} R^{0} = 1

Question 4 of 20
4. Question
The HM of two numbers is 4 and their AM and GM satisfy the relation 2A + G^{2} = 27, then the numbers are
Correct
H = 4, G^{2} = AH
⇒ 2A + G^{2} = 27
⇒ 2A + AH = 27
⇒ 6A = 2A ⇒ A = 9/2, G^{2} = 18
a + b = 9, ab = 18
∴ a = 3, b = 6 or a = 6, b = 3
Incorrect
H = 4, G^{2} = AH
⇒ 2A + G^{2} = 27
⇒ 2A + AH = 27
⇒ 6A = 2A ⇒ A = 9/2, G^{2} = 18
a + b = 9, ab = 18
∴ a = 3, b = 6 or a = 6, b = 3

Question 5 of 20
5. Question
If a, b, c and d are in GP, then
a^{n} + b^{n}, b^{n} + c^{n}, c^{n} + d^{n} are in
Correct
∵ a, b, c, d are in G.P.
⇒ b = ar, c = ar^{2}, d = ar^{2} ……..(i)
Now, (a^{n }+ b^{n}) (c^{n} + d^{n})
= (a^{n} + a^{n}r^{n}) × (a^{n}r^{2n} + a^{n}r^{3n}) [from Eq. (i)]
= a^{n} (1 + rn) a^{n}r^{2n} (1 + r^{n})
= a^{2n}r^{2n}(1 + r^{n})^{2} = (a^{n}r^{n}(1 + r^{n}))2 = [a^{n}r^{n} + a^{n}r^{2n}]^{2}
= [(ar)^{n} + (ar^{2})^{n}]^{2} = (b^{n} + c^{n})^{2} [from Eq. (i)]
Hence, they are in GP.
Incorrect
∵ a, b, c, d are in G.P.
⇒ b = ar, c = ar^{2}, d = ar^{2} ……..(i)
Now, (a^{n }+ b^{n}) (c^{n} + d^{n})
= (a^{n} + a^{n}r^{n}) × (a^{n}r^{2n} + a^{n}r^{3n}) [from Eq. (i)]
= a^{n} (1 + rn) a^{n}r^{2n} (1 + r^{n})
= a^{2n}r^{2n}(1 + r^{n})^{2} = (a^{n}r^{n}(1 + r^{n}))2 = [a^{n}r^{n} + a^{n}r^{2n}]^{2}
= [(ar)^{n} + (ar^{2})^{n}]^{2} = (b^{n} + c^{n})^{2} [from Eq. (i)]
Hence, they are in GP.

6. Question
If a^{1}^{/x} = b^{1}^{/y} = c^{1}^{/z} and a,b,c ae in GP, then x,y,z will be in
Correct
Let a^{1}^{/x} = b^{1}^{/y} = c^{1}^{/z}
= k ⇒ a = k^{x}, b = k^{y}, c = k^{z}
Now, a,b,c are in G.P.
⇒ b^{2} = ac ⇒ k^{2y} = k^{x}.k^{z} = k^{x}^{ + z}
⇒ 2y = x + z
∴ x,y,z are in A.P.
Incorrect
Let a^{1}^{/x} = b^{1}^{/y} = c^{1}^{/z}
= k ⇒ a = k^{x}, b = k^{y}, c = k^{z}
Now, a,b,c are in G.P.
⇒ b^{2} = ac ⇒ k^{2y} = k^{x}.k^{z} = k^{x}^{ + z}
⇒ 2y = x + z
∴ x,y,z are in A.P.

= 2500

Question 8 of 20
8. Question
The number which should be added to the numbers 2, 14, 62, so that the resulting numbers may be in GP, is
Correct
Suppose that the added number be x, then x + 2, x + 14, x + 62 are in GP.
∴ (x + 14)^{2} = (x + 2)(x + 62)
⇒ x^{2} + 196 + 28x = x^{2} + 64x + 124
⇒ 36x = 72 ⇒ x = 2
Incorrect
Suppose that the added number be x, then x + 2, x + 14, x + 62 are in GP.
∴ (x + 14)^{2} = (x + 2)(x + 62)
⇒ x^{2} + 196 + 28x = x^{2} + 64x + 124
⇒ 36x = 72 ⇒ x = 2

Question 9 of 20
9. Question
The largest term common to the sequences
1, 11, 21, 31, …… to 100 terms and 31, 36, 41, 46, ….. to 100 terms
Correct
t_{m} + t_{n}
1 + (m – 1), 10 = 31 + (n – 1).5
10m – 9 = 5n + 26
10m = 5n + 34 = 5(n + 7)
m = λ and n = 2λ – 7
m ≤ 100 and n ≤ 100
λ ≤ 100 and 2λ – 7 ≤ 100 ⇒ λ ≤ 53 1/2
so 1 ≤ λ ≤ 53 [No. of common term = 53]
t_{53} = 1 + 52.10 = 521
Incorrect
t_{m} + t_{n}
1 + (m – 1), 10 = 31 + (n – 1).5
10m – 9 = 5n + 26
10m = 5n + 34 = 5(n + 7)
m = λ and n = 2λ – 7
m ≤ 100 and n ≤ 100
λ ≤ 100 and 2λ – 7 ≤ 100 ⇒ λ ≤ 53 1/2
so 1 ≤ λ ≤ 53 [No. of common term = 53]
t_{53} = 1 + 52.10 = 521

Question 10 of 20
10. Question
If the angles of a quadrilateral are in AP, whose common difference is 10°, then the angles of the quadrilateral are
Correct
Suppose that ∠A = x, then ∠B = x + 10^{o},
∠C = x + 20^{o} and ∠D = x + 30^{o}
So, we know that ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360^{o}
On putting these values, we get
(x) + (x + 10°) + (x + 20°) + (x + 30°) = 360°
⇒ x = 75°
Hence, the angles of the quadrilateral are 75°, 85°, 95°, 105°.
Incorrect

∠C = x + 20^{o} and ∠D = x + 30^{o}
So, we know that ∠A + ∠B + ∠C + ∠D = 360^{o}
On putting these values, we get
(x) + (x + 10°) + (x + 20°) + (x + 30°) = 360°
⇒ x = 75°
Hence, the angles of the quadrilateral are 75°, 85°, 95°, 105°.

Question 12 of 20
12. Question
If x, 2y and 3z are in AP, where the distinct numbers x, y, z are in GP, then the common ratio of the GP is
Correct
Since, x, 2y and 3z are in AP.
∴ 4y = x + 3z …..(i)
And x, y, z are in GP.
∴ y = rx and z = xr^{2}
On putting the values of y and z in Eq. (i), we get 4xr = x + 3xr^{2}
⇒ 3r^{2} – 4r + 1 = 0
⇒ (3r – 1)(r – 1) = 0
⇒ r = 1/3, 1
∴ r = 1/3 (∵ r ≠ 1)
Incorrect
Since, x, 2y and 3z are in AP.
∴ 4y = x + 3z …..(i)
And x, y, z are in GP.
∴ y = rx and z = xr^{2}
On putting the values of y and z in Eq. (i), we get 4xr = x + 3xr^{2}
⇒ 3r^{2} – 4r + 1 = 0
⇒ (3r – 1)(r – 1) = 0
⇒ r = 1/3, 1
∴ r = 1/3 (∵ r ≠ 1)

Question 13 of 20
13. Question
Three numbers form a GP. If the 3^{rd} term is decreased by 64, then the three numbers thus obtained will constitute an AP. If the second term of this AP is decreased by 8, a GP will be formed again, then the numbers will be
Correct
Let a, ar, ar^{2} are in GP and a, ar, ar^{2} – 64 are in AP, we get
a(r^{2} – 2r + 1) = 64 ….(i)
Again, a, ar – 8, ar^{2} – 64 are in GP.
∴ (ar – 8)^{2} = a(ar^{2} – 64)
⇒ a(16r – 64) = 64 ….(ii)
On solving Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get r = 5, a = 4
Thus, required numbers are 4, 20, 100.
Incorrect
Let a, ar, ar^{2} are in GP and a, ar, ar^{2} – 64 are in AP, we get
a(r^{2} – 2r + 1) = 64 ….(i)
Again, a, ar – 8, ar^{2} – 64 are in GP.
∴ (ar – 8)^{2} = a(ar^{2} – 64)
⇒ a(16r – 64) = 64 ….(ii)
On solving Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get r = 5, a = 4
Thus, required numbers are 4, 20, 100.

Correct
∵ 1029 = 3.7^{3} → number of divisors = (1 + 1) (1 +3) = 8
1547 = 7.11^{2} → number of divisors = (1 + 1) (1 +3) = 6
122 = 2.61 → number of divisors = (1+ 1 ) (1 + 1) = 4
Also 8, 6, 4 are in AP
Incorrect
∵ 1029 = 3.7^{3} → number of divisors = (1 + 1) (1 +3) = 8
1547 = 7.11^{2} → number of divisors = (1 + 1) (1 +3) = 6
122 = 2.61 → number of divisors = (1+ 1 ) (1 + 1) = 4
Also 8, 6, 4 are in AP
