**Answer** : Option A

**Explanation**: \({7}_{{C}_{2}}\) x \({3}_{{C}_{1}}\)

= \(\frac{7 × 6}{2 × 1}\)

= 63

**2. How many 4-letter words with or without meaning, can be formed out of the letters of the word, ‘LOGARITHMS’, if repetition of letters is not allowed?**

**Answer** : Option C

**Explanation**: ‘LOGARITHMS’ contains 10 different letters.

Required number of words = Number of arrangements of 10 letters, taking 4 at a time.

= \({10}_{{P}_{2}}\)

= (10 x 9 x 8 x 7)

= 5040.

**3. In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘MATHEMATICS’ be arranged so that the vowels always come together?**

**Answer** : Option C

**Explanation**: In the word ‘MATHEMATICS’, we treat the vowels AEAI as one letter.

Thus, we have MTHMTCS (AEAI).

Now, we have to arrange 8 letters, out of which M occurs twice, T occurs twice and the rest are different.

Number of ways of arranging these letters = \(\frac{8!}{(2!)(2!)}\) = 10080.

Now, AEAI has 4 letters in which A occurs 2 times and the rest are different.

Number of ways of arranging these letters = \(\frac{4!}{2!}\) = 12.

Required number of words = (10080 x 12) = 120960.

**4. In how many different ways can the letters of the word ‘OPTICAL’ be arranged so that the vowels always come together?**

**Answer** : Option B

**Explanation**: The word ‘OPTICAL’ contains 7 different letters.

When the vowels OIA are always together, they can be supposed to form one letter.

Then, we have to arrange the letters PTCL (OIA).

Now, 5 letters can be arranged in 5! = 120 ways.

The vowels (OIA) can be arranged among themselves in 3! = 6 ways.

Required number of ways = (120 x 6) = 720.

**5. In a group of 6 boys and 4 girls, four children are to be selected. In how many different ways can they be selected such that at least one boy should be there?**

**Answer** : Option C

**Explanation**: We may have (1 boy and 3 girls) or (2 boys and 2 girls) or (3 boys and 1 girl) or (4 boys).

Required number of ways = (\({6}_{{C}_{1}}\) x \({4}_{{C}_{3}}\)) + (\({6}_{{C}_{2}}\) x \({4}_{{C}_{1}}\)) + (\({6}_{{C}_{3}}\) x \({4}_{{C}_{1}}\) ) + ( \({6}_{{C}_{4}}\) )

= (\({6}_{{C}_{1}}\) x \({4}_{{C}_{1}}\)) + (\({6}_{{C}_{2}}\) x \({4}_{{C}_{2}}\)) + (\({6}_{{C}_{3}}\) x \({4}_{{C}_{1}}\)) + (\({6}_{{C}_{4}}\) )

= (6 x 4) + \(\frac{6 × 5}{2 × 1}\) x \(\frac{4 × 3}{2 × 1}\) + \(\frac{6 × 5 × 4 }{3 × 2 × 1}\) x 4 + \(\frac{6 × 5}{2 × 1}\)

= (24 + 90 + 80 + 15)

= 209.

**Answer** : Option C

**Explanation**: Let there be x pupils in the class.

Total increase in marks = [x × \(\frac{1}{2 }\)] = \(\frac{× }{2 }\)

∴ \(\frac{× }{2 }\) = (83 – 63) ⇒ \(\frac{× }{2 }\) = 20

⇒x = 40

**2. The captain of a cricket team of 11 members is 26 years old and the wicket keeper is 3 years older. If the ages of these two are excluded, the average age of the remaining players is one year less than the average age of the whole team. What is the average age of the team?**

**Answer** : Option A

**Explanation**: Let the average age of the whole team by x years.

∴ 11x – (26 + 29) = 9(x -1)

⇒11x – 9x = 46

⇒ 2x = 46

⇒ x = 23.

So, the average age of the team is 23 years.

**3. The average monthly income of P and Q is Rs. 5050. The average monthly income of Q and R is Rs. 6250 and the average monthly income of P and R is Rs. 5200. The monthly income of P is:**

**Answer** : Option B

**Explanation**: Let P, Q and R represent their respective monthly incomes. Then, we have:

P + Q = (5050 x 2) = 10100 …. (i)

Q + R = (6250 x 2) = 12500 …. (ii)

P + R = (5200 x 2) = 10400 …. (iii)

Adding (i), (ii) and (iii), we get: 2(P + Q + R) = 33000 or P + Q + R = 16500 …. (iv)

Subtracting (ii) from (iv), we get P = 4000.

∴ P’s monthly income = Rs. 4000.

**4. The average age of husband, wife and their child 3 years ago was 27 years and that of wife and the child 5 years ago was 20 years. The present age of the husband is:**

**Answer** : Option B

**Explanation**: Sum of the present ages of husband, wife and child = (27 x 3 + 3 x 3) years = 90 years.

Sum of the present ages of wife and child = (20 x 2 + 5 x 2) years = 50 years.

∴ Husband’s present age = (90 – 50) years = 40 years.

**5. In Arun’s opinion, his weight is greater than 65 kg but less than 72 kg. His brother doest not agree with Arun and he thinks that Arun’s weight is greater than 60 kg but less than 70 kg. His mother’s view is that his weight cannot be greater than 68 kg. If all are them are correct in their estimation, what is the average of different probable weights of Arun?**

**B.** 68 kg.

**C.** 69 kg.

**D.** Data inadequate

**Answer** : Option A

**Explanation**: Let Arun’s weight by X kg.

According to Arun, 65 < X < 72

According to Arun's brother, 60 < X < 70.

According to Arun's mother, X <= 68

The values satisfying all the above conditions are 66, 67 and 68.

Required average = \(\frac{66 + 67 + 68}{3}\)

= \(\frac{201}{3}\)

= 67 kg
