The factors that end with 5 will have 0, 1, or 2 as the

power of 3 and 1 or 2 as the power of 5. So the sum

3. b The least value of the expression | x 2 | + | x + 3 | +

| x 5 | + | x 8 | is 14.

This is valid as long as x takes any value from x = 2 to

x = 5. Since we have to find only integer values of x

there will be 4 such values.

If x takes any other integer value, the value of the

expression would either be 16 or more than 16. E.g. If

x = 1 or 6, the value of the expression becomes 16.

4. c Since he earns Rs 1200 as compound interest for the

1st year and Rs 2880 as compound interest for 2

HCF of 108, 120 and 96 = 12

HCF of 108, 72 and 96 = 12

6. a It is clear that a cannot be zero.

There are two cases:-

Case 1: If none of the two digits b and c is zero. The

three digits from the remaining 9 digits can be chosen

in

9

C

3

ways and can be put in strictly increasing or

decreasing order (2 ways).

Case 2: If one of the digits b and c is zero. It can be

observed that only c can take the value zero. The

remaining two digits a and b can be chosen in

9

C

2

ways and they have to be put only in strictly decreasing

order (So they are not to be permuted).

So the answer is 2

9. c Let ABCD be the quadrilateral and AB = 6 cm and

BC = 8 cm.

It should be noticed that two such cyclic quadilaterals

ABCD are possible where AB = 6 cm and BC = 8 cm.

To understand this draw a chord of length 8 cm (BC)

in the circle with radius 5 cm. Now AB can be drawn

either on the major arc BC or on the minor arc BC. But

since the question asks for maximum possible area

will consider the first case where ABC forms a right

angled triangle and the hypotenuse is 10 cm (the

diameter of the circumcircle of ABCD).

When we erase two consecutive integers the average

of the remaining numbers would either increase or

decrease depending upon the numbers erased. The

maximum change in the average can be +1 or 1.

So the initial average should have been one of 20.5,

21, 21.5 or 22. As this is the average of the first n

consecutive numbers, n would be one of 40, 41, 42 or

43. Since only 41 2 = 39 is divisible by 3, there were

41 numbers initially and the initial average was 21.

So if the two numbers that are removed are 21 K

and 21 ( K + 1), the increase of

1 (2K + 1)

= .

3 39

K = 6

So the two numbers that are removed are 14 and 15.

Their product is 210.

This is possible only if the product of a, b, c and d is

1, 0 or 1. So either (a, b, c, d) are all 1 or all 0 or all

1. Also, if two of them are 1 and the other two are

1, the given condition still holds true. Since these are

ordered sets, this can be done in 6 ways. Hence, the

answer is 9.

19. c If P + Q + R is 9 i.e. odd, then either all of P, Q, R are odd

or two of them are even and one is odd. Since we

already have 4 odd digits as V, W, X, Y, all three of P,

Q and R cannot be odd.

If V, W, X, Y are consecutive odd digits, the odd digit

among P, Q and R can be 1 only. So the sum of the

remaining two digits among P, Q and R is 8 which is

possible as 0 + 8 only (because S, T and U are

consecutive even digits).

Hence, P = 8, Q = 1, R = 0, S = 6, T = 4, U = 2, V = 9,

W = 7, X = 5 and Y = 3. So the required answer is

0 + 6 + 4 = 10.

22. b SPR for T1, T2 and T3 = 12.17

SPR for T2, T3 and T4 = 14.44

SPR for T3, T4 and T5 = 16.06

SPR for T1, T4 and T5 = 17.27

Only one of the four mixtures i.e. T2, T3 and T4 has

SPR between 13 and 15. Also, it can be easily seen

from the tables that CSI of that mixture would definitely

be at least 70 as AWG would be much more than 50.

23. d The table gives data about the average weight per

chocolate for each of the boxes. However, this is not

sufficient to calculate the average weight if only 4

chocolates are picked from T1 and 3 are picked from

T2. The average weight of this mixture would depend

upon the actual weights of the chocolates that have

been picked. Hence, the CSI of the mixture cannot be

determined.

24. d 1 2 3 4 5

possible i.e. 6 in case of these four arrangements:

So the number of friends sitting between Xavi and

Iniesta is either 0 or 1.

25. a Let: Abhas (A) Golu (G) Nagendra (N) Puneet (P)

Saral (S) Vikas (V)

Abhas must have won his match as he is ranked 1.

Also, exactly one out of Golu and Nagendra lost his

match.

One of the following pairs must be true:

(i) A G

(ii) A N

(iii) G N

The following combinations are possible:

From (i)

Case I. A G, P V and N S

From (ii)

Case II. A N, G P and S V

Case III. A N, G S and P V

From (iii)

Case IV. G N, A P and S V

Case V. G N, A S and P V

From Statement A:

Only Case I follows. So the question can be answered

using A alone.

From Statement B:

Only Case V follows. So the question can be an-

swered using B alone.

C

= 21.

Hence, the number of matches played on each day must be 7.

The number of matches won by each of the seven players is distinct. So they must be distinct integers from 0 to 6.

From the information given in the question the following table can be made:

A B C D E F G

The first piece of information F lost to C, D, E and G on Monday has been highlighted.

Further,

(i) G won two matches on Tuesday. The table clearly indicates these two matches must be the ones against D and E as only

those two cells are left blank for G.

(ii) The three matches played by A against B, C and D must have all taken place on Monday only as the information is given only

about 4 matches for Monday. Also, C must have lost to A as it is given that C did not win more than 1 match on Monday. B must

have won against A on Monday as each of the other six players has lost at least 1 game (see the table).

Once the above has been concluded we can see that the number of matches won by G, F, E, B and C must be 5, 0, 1, 6 and 2

respectively. However, we cannot determine the winner of the game between A and D as both the possibilities satisfy all the

given conditions.

So the final table would look like this:

27. d The player who won two or more matches on Monday

can be either A or D.

28. d On Tuesday and Wednesday combined, B won 5 while

D won 2 matches. So the answer will be 5 + 2 = 7.

29. b The maximum number of matches won by a single

player on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday was 2, 3

C 6000

Wastage in Kohramabad = 6600 2700 = 3900

Wastage in Tootanagar = 2700 1200 = 1500

So the ratio = 3900 : 1500 = 13 : 5

35. a A linear function can be strictly increasing or strictly

decreasing or constant.

From the data given in Statement A:

If f(1) f(2) and f(3) f(2) , the linear function has to

be a constant function where the coefficient of x is 0.

So f(x) is a constant function. If f(0) = 5, f(x) = 5.

From the data given in Statement B:

We can only say that it is an increasing linear function.

But the value of f(5) cannot be determined.

For question 36 to 38:

Let the number assigned to A, B, C, D and E be a, b, c, d and e

respectively.

Let the numbers called by Smith be C1, C2, C3, C4.C7 in the

order of the calls made.

C1 and C2:

C1 + C2 = 30 (given)

Out of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6: 3 numbers (b, d and e) divide C1 and 4

numbers (b, c, d and e) divide C2.

Neither C1 nor C2 can be divisible by 5 as otherwise the above

Statement wont be true (check for the values 5 and 25 and

10 and 20).

Hence, a = 5.

c,d and e must be 3, 4 and 6 (not necessarily in that order).

b = 2 (given)

So C1 and C2 must be multiples of 6 and 12 respectively.

Simple observation tells that C1 must be 18 (divisible by 2, 3

and 6) and C2 must be 12 (divisible by 2, 3, 4 and 6).

Hence, c = 4.

C1, C2 and C5 are divisible by both d and e.

Hence, d, e = 3, 6 (not necessarily in that order).

Now, C3 + C4 + C5 + C6 + C7 = 100 30 = 70

Four of the above five are greater than 10. Hence, none of the

five can be greater than 30. .(conclusion 1)

C3:

C3 can be 5, 35, 55 etc.

But from conclusion 1, C3 must be 5 only.

C4:

C4 is definitely a prime number greater than 10.

C5:

C5 is a multiple of 2, 3, 4 and 6 i.e. 12, 24, 36 etc. From

conclusion 1 and the fact that C2 = 12:

C5 = 24

C6:

C6 can only be 10.

C7:

C7 must be a prime (greater than 6) multiple of 2.

C7 can be 14, 22 etc.

Now, C1 + C2 + C3 + C4 + C5 + C6 + C7 = 100

18 + 12 + 5 + C4 + 24 + 10 + C7 = 100

C4 + C7 = 31

Only possible values for C4 and C7 are 17 and 14.

36. b

37. d

38. d 45 = 3

2

.5 (using prime factorisation)

Hence, A (as a = 5) will definitely raise his hand. One

person out of D and E has the number 3 assigned to

him. So it cannot be determined exactly who will raise

his hand along with A.

39. c From statement A:

We can say that

p q

N a b (where a and b are prime),

with which we cannot conclude anything about the

perfect square factors of N as p and q are unknown.

From statement B:

N has 9 distinct composite factors. The statement is

insufficient as we dont know how many prime factors

does N have.

Combining the statements A and B:

N is of form:

p q

N a b and has nine distinct composite

factors.

So total factors of N = Prime factors + Composite

factors + 1 = 2 + 9 + 1 = 12.

But N cannot be uniquely expressed as p, q can have

multiple sets of values.

So the question cannot be answered even after

combining the two statements.

40. b Let the three teams be T1, T2 and T3

E, F and G must be in different teams. Lets assume

that they are in T1, T2 and T3 respectively.

As A and G are in the same team, A must be in T3.

As B and C are in the same team so they can be either

in T1 or T2. If B and C are in T1 then D must be in T2

and vice-versa.

D is always in a 2-member team (either T1 or T2).

Also, A and G will always form a 2-member team T3.

So A, D and G are always in a team with exactly 2

members.

41. c All the other options are supported by the passage.

Option (a) can be inferred from the lines Books require

a certain quiet, a solitude that is all the more valuable

for the way it can be achieved in public. Option (b) is

supported by the lines I was always under the

impression that books served a dual purpose: not

only do they offer a world to enter, but also they offer

an affordable means of escape from the world were

in. Option (d) can also be inferred from The place of

stillness that you have to go to to write, but also to

read seriously, is the point where you can actually

make responsible decisions, where you can actually

engage productively with an otherwise scary and

unmanageable world.

42. a The author discusses this instance to highlight the

fact that he/she does not consider the mode of delivery

to be important. Refer to the lines The problem here

is not with the e-book. Im in favour of any mode of

literature delivery. Option (b) is incorrect. The author

does mention e-books but that is not the central point

he/she is trying to make through this example. Options

(c) and (d) are also mentioned, but again that is not

what the author wants to highlight through this example.

43. c The author starts the discussion by mentioning e-books

and how they contrast with the traditional modes of

reading. However the central idea is what exactly

characterizes the process of reading. And the author

then goes on to describe several different aspects of

reading, e.g. the way it provides an escape, or the

way it gives us a place of stillness. Option (d) can be

considered, but the focus of the author is not on why

reading is important, rather he/she is more intent on

describing the process of reading and the benefits of

the same.

44. b The answer can be inferred from the lines The

constant barrage of information Mr Franzen

describes makes the insularity of a good book all the

more valuable, like an antidote.

45. c Statement C has to be the opening sentence as it

provides the background to the rest of the discussion.

There is also a link between statements A and D.

46. a Statements E and C form a mandatory pair and have to

come together. But the deciding factor here is the

mandatory pair of (D-A). Both statements talk about

continuity. the policy landscape looks mostly the

way it did over the last few decades in D and

Were still a closely divided nation in A.

47. b The correct usage should have been close in on. It

means To advance on a target so as to block escape.

48. b The authors tone is sarcastic throughout the passage.

Refer to lines the Great Canadian Anti-Salt Crusade

or How thoughtful!

49. a Refer to the lines towards the end of the passage

Worry, worry, worry. Since Woodward, Bernstein and

Watergate journalism schools have taught students

their job is not to be interesting, entertaining and

possibly even amusing but rather, in their role as a

sub-genre of social worker, to get to the bottom of

crises and conspiracies.

50. b The author pokes fun at this rather than supporting it.

Refer to the lines How thoughtful! From cradle to

grave via campsite, your government and its attendant

broadcast corporation are working tirelessly for you.

51. a Throughout the passage the author describes the

tendency of the media to portray issues as crises.

Therefore option (a) is the best title. Options (b) and

(c) do not convey the ideas in the passage as in the

authors opinion the news stories in the passage are

not about real or important issues. Option (d) is beyond

the scope of the passage.

52. d According to the passage IT systems are not replacing

high-skilled or low-skilled workers but only those

whose jobs are routine driven and thus can be easily

mechanised. Refer to the lines Computers do not

directly compete with the abstract, analytical tasks

that many high-skilled workers do, but aid their

productivity by speeding up the more routine bits of

their jobs. But they do directly affect the need for

people like assembly-line workers or those doing

certain clerical tasks, whose jobs can be reduced to

a set of instructions which a machine can easily follow

(and which can consequently be mechanised). At the

other end of the employment spectrum, as the example

of the towel-folding robot neatly demonstrates, low-

skilled jobs may not require much education but they

are very hard to mechanise.

53. b Refer to the lines, The authors also find that once the

role of technology is accounted for, openness to trade

has no effect on the extent of polarisation. However,

the adoption of IT might itself be a function of

globalisation.

54. a IT systems are not replacing high-skilled or low-skilled

workers but only those whose jobs are routine driven

and thus can be easily mechanised.

55. a Refer to the lines The pattern was similar in countries

with very different levels of unionisation, prevalence

of collective bargaining and welfare systems.

Therefore level of unionisation is not a factor that

affects job polarisation.

56. d Option (a) is incorrect as it traces the history of the

idea. Option (b) is incorrect as it brings in the ideas of

universe, intellect and immaterial entity of which there

are no references in the paragraph. Option (c) again

brings in a new perspective (Aristotle) so it is not

appropriate. Option (d) is the correct answer as it

carries forward the contrast between the mind and

the body.

57. a Option (a) is correct as it logically takes forward the

idea of the change in phraseology used at the Oscars.

Option (b) is eliminated as it focuses on the officials

responsible for making the change and not the change

itself. Option (c) is irrelevant as the decision for the

producers has no reference in the paragraph. Option

(d) talks about the earlier format the Oscar goes to

and hence is inappropriate.

58. a The paragraph discusses societys outrage towards

terror attacks. Option (a) is a logical conclusion to the

argument .The paragraph is general in nature. Hence

option (b) and (c) can be eliminated as they talk about

retaliation. Option (d) can be eliminated as it describes

a positive fallout of terror attacks which is contradictory

to tone of the passage.

59. d Statement A has a subject verb agreement error. It

should be one of Britains best known artists.

Statement D is incorrect. The entire paragraph is in the

past tense therefore statement D should also be in the

same tense as it continues the same idea.

60. c Statement C is incorrect as it the preposition up is

incorrectly used with raised. Statement D has a subject

verb agreement error the quip... ... seems to have

some truth.
