Question 1 |

In a mess, there are number of students having fun with their meal. The total number of students in the Mess is a two digit number and that number is a prime number. Keeping this in mind, which of the following could be the ratio of boys vs number of girls

7: 8 | |

14: 15 | |

25: 26 | |

None of these |

Question 1 Explanation:

Given that the total number of students is a prime number,

the given ratio will be the exact number of boys and girl students,

so using the answer options, we can easily

find the ratio by adding and checking:

Option A: 7+8 = 15 not a prime number

Option C: 25+26 = 51, not a prime number

Option B: 14+15= 29 is a prime number, so option b is the right answer.

so using the answer options, we can easily

find the ratio by adding and checking:

Option A: 7+8 = 15 not a prime number

Option C: 25+26 = 51, not a prime number

Option B: 14+15= 29 is a prime number, so option b is the right answer.

Question 2 |

How many fractions in the form of the (p/q) (q not equal to zero) are there between 3/4 and 4/5?

1 | |

56 | |

Infinite | |

None of these |

Question 2 Explanation:

The right answer is infinite because between two

rational numbers there exist infinite number of rational numbers

rational numbers there exist infinite number of rational numbers

Question 3 |

If we have two numbers r and r + 1 (both are prime numbers), then what can be said about r - 1?

It is a perfect number | |

It is a composite number | |

Its square is a composite number. | |

It has only 1 factor |

Question 3 Explanation:

It is given that r and r+1 are prime numbers.

This means r has to be 2, otherwise this is not possible.

r-1=1, and it is neither prime nor composite,

and it has only one factor.

This means r has to be 2, otherwise this is not possible.

r-1=1, and it is neither prime nor composite,

and it has only one factor.

Question 4 |

If p is prime number greater than 7 then what can we say about the divisibility of p

^{2 }-1? Number divisible by 5 | |

Number is not divisible by 5 | |

Number must be divisible by 6 | |

None |

Question 4 Explanation:

Since it is given that the prime number which is greater than the 7, let us consider one such number: 11
So if p = 11 then p

which is divisible by 5,6

P=13, 169-1=168 not divisible by 5 but divisible by 6

P=17, 289-1=288 not divisible by 5 but divisible by 6

So the right answer is option 3.

^{2 }-1=120which is divisible by 5,6

P=13, 169-1=168 not divisible by 5 but divisible by 6

P=17, 289-1=288 not divisible by 5 but divisible by 6

So the right answer is option 3.

Question 5 |

If s is the summation of a two digit number and the number formed by reversing its digits, then which of the following is correct about S? (i) S may be divisible by 11
(ii) S must be divisible by 11
(iii) S is an odd number

Only (i) and (ii) | |

Only (ii) | |

Only (ii) & (iii) | |

None of these |

Question 5 Explanation:

Let a two digit number be 'ab' = 10a + b (here a is not equal to 0)

S = (10a + b) + (10b + a) =11(a+b)

From this we can infer that S will always be divisible by 11, making statement (ii) correct.

And S is odd or even depends on (a+b),

because if it is even then S would be even and if it is odd then S would be odd as odd*odd=odd and odd*even=even.

S = (10a + b) + (10b + a) =11(a+b)

From this we can infer that S will always be divisible by 11, making statement (ii) correct.

And S is odd or even depends on (a+b),

because if it is even then S would be even and if it is odd then S would be odd as odd*odd=odd and odd*even=even.
