Q No. Key Explanation


1. 4 2k – 9 – 9 – k = 4k + 6 – 3k  k – 18 = k
+
6  -18 = 6 (which is not possible)
hence no value of k is possible
2. 2 p = aq 2 + bq + c  p = (1)q 2 + (-2)q + (1)
 p = (q-1)2
3. 2 A + B + C = 10 ……(1), A + B = 7
4. 1 As a+b = 2c a+b-2c = 0 a+b-c-c = 0
(a-c) + (b-c) = 0
which implies (b- c) = - (a-c)
a a
 + c = +
ac bc ac
c a c ac

5. 2 As x + y + z = 0, squaring both sides (x + y
+ z) 2 = 0 x2+y2+z2+2(xy + yz + zx) = 0
x2+y2+z2 = -2(xy+yz+zx) the value of
x 2  y 2  z 2  2( xy  yz  zx)

xy  yz  zx xy  yz  zx

7. 3 Let the sum of the salaries of 10
employee’s = S and salary of
businessman
=B
6S
According to the given condition, B =
10
and B + S = 64000, Solving we get B
= Rs. 24000
8. 3 As x = a (b-c), y = b (c-a), z = c (a-b)  x =
