(d) 350 metres

**Answers :**

**1) Answer: D**

Let the sum be 100x.

CI for 2 years at 16% = 34.56x

SI for 2 years at 16% = 32x

CI – SI = 320

2.56x = 320

x = 125

Sum = Rs. 12500

**2) Answer: B**

Let the no. be a, b, c, d, e.

ATQ,

a + b + c + d + c = 76 × 5 = 380

& a = 3 / 7 (b + c + d + e)

⇒ a + 7/3 a = 380

a = 114

**3) Answer: D**

Slope (m) ⇒ tan (–45°) = –1

Eq^{n} of line ⇒ (y – y_{1}) = m (x – x_{1})

⇒ (y + 3) = –1 (x – 2)

⇒ x + y = –1

**4) Answer: D**

From, 2(3x – 2) < (6 – 3x) ⇒ x < 10/9

From, 6x + 2(6 – x) > (2x – 2) ⇒ x > –7

∴Only option (d) i.e. –5 can be the value of x.

**5) Answer: B**

ATQ,

36 – 16x – 4x + 8 = 4

x = 2

**6) Answer: B**

**7) Answer: C**

**8) Answer: C**

Cot 210° = cot (180° + 30°)

= cot 30°

= √3

**9) Answer: D**

(200000 – 6) × (200000 + 6)

= (200000)² – (6)²

= 39999999964

**10) Answer: D**
