Your answers are highlighted below.
Question 1
If p ≠q, then which of the following statements is true?
A
$ \displaystyle \frac{p+q}{1}=\sqrt{pq}$
B
$ \displaystyle \frac{p+q}{2}<\sqrt{pq}$
C
$ \displaystyle \frac{p+q}{2}>\sqrt{pq}$
D
all of the above
Question 1 Explanation: 
$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}Arithmetic\,\,\,\,mean\,\,\,(AM)\,\,\,=\frac{p+q}{2}\\Geometric\,\,\,\,mean\,\,\,\,\left( GM \right)\,\,=\sqrt{pq}\\As\,\,\,\,AM>GM\\\frac{p+q}{2}>\sqrt{pq}\end{array}$
Question 2
$ \displaystyle \left( f+\frac{1}{f} \right)\left( f-\frac{1}{f} \right)\left( {{f}^{2}}+\frac{1}{{{f}^{2}}}-1 \right)\left( {{f}^{2}}+\frac{1}{{{f}^{2}}}+1 \right)$
is equal to the
A
$ \displaystyle {{f}^{6}}+\frac{1}{{{f}^{6}}}$
B
$ \displaystyle {{f}^{8}}+\frac{1}{{{f}^{8}}}$
C
$ \displaystyle {{f}^{8}}-\frac{1}{{{f}^{8}}}$
D
$ \displaystyle {{f}^{6}}-\frac{1}{{{f}^{6}}}$
Question 2 Explanation: 
$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}=\left( f+\frac{1}{f} \right)\left( f-\frac{1}{f} \right)\left( {{f}^{2}}+\frac{1}{{{f}^{2}}}-1 \right)\left( {{f}^{2}}+\frac{1}{{{f}^{2}}}+1 \right)\\=\left( {{f}^{2}}-\frac{1}{{{f}^{2}}} \right)\left[ {{\left( {{f}^{2}}+\frac{1}{{{f}^{2}}} \right)}^{2}}-1 \right]\\=\left( {{f}^{2}}-\frac{1}{{{f}^{2}}} \right)\left( {{f}^{4}}+\frac{1}{{{f}^{4}}}+1 \right)\\={{f}^{6}}-\frac{1}{{{f}^{6}}}\end{array}$
Question 3
If p, q are two positive real numbers and p1/3 = q1/3, then which of the following relations is true?
A
p20=q15
B
p3=q
C
p =q4
D
p3=q4
Question 3 Explanation: 
$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}{{p}^{\frac{1}{3}}}={{q}^{\frac{1}{4}}}\\\Rightarrow {{\left( {{p}^{\frac{1}{3}}} \right)}^{12}}={{\left( {{q}^{\frac{1}{4}}} \right)}^{12}}\\\Rightarrow {{p}^{4}}={{q}^{3}}\\\Rightarrow {{\left( {{p}^{4}} \right)}^{5}}={{\left( {{q}^{3}} \right)}^{5}}\\\Rightarrow {{p}^{20}}={{q}^{15}}\end{array}$
Question 4
If q2p+2=1, where q is a positive real number other than 1, then p is equal to
A
-4
B
-3
C
3
D
-1
Question 4 Explanation: 
We know that q0=1
Therefore
$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}{{q}^{2p+2}}=1\\\Rightarrow 2p+2=0\\\Rightarrow p=\frac{-2}{2}=-1\end{array}$
Question 5
If p is real, then the minimum value of (p2 -p +1 ) is
A
3/4
B
3/2
C
1/4
D
none of these
Question 5 Explanation: 
$ \displaystyle \text{For }\,\,\,\text{expression }\,\,\text{a}{{x}^{2}}\text{ +bx +c, a 0 , the minimum value}$
$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}\frac{4ac-{{b}^{2}}}{4a}\\Here,\,\,\,for\,\,\,{{p}^{2}}-p+1\\a=1\\b=-1\\c=1\\Therefore\,\,\,Minimum\,\,\,\,value\\=\frac{4\times 1\times 1-1}{4\times 1\times 1}=\frac{3}{4}\end{array}$
