**Answers:**

**1) Answer: D**

Given that,

Given that,

N=((√6-√5))/((√6+√5) )& (1/N)=((√6+√5))/((√6-√5) )

So, N+ (1/N)=((√6-√5))/((√6+√5) )+((√6+√5))/((√6-√5) )

= 6 + 5 – 2√30 + 6 + 5 + 2√30 = 22

**2)** **Answer:** **A**

Value of (3+1)(3^{2}+1)(3^{4}+1)(3^{8}+1)(3^{16}+1)

⇒ (1/2) × (3-1) (3+1)(3^{2}+1)(3^{4}+1)(3^{8}+1)(3^{16}+1)

⇒ (1/2) × (3^{2 }– 1) (3^{2} +1) (3^{4}+1)(3^{8}+1)(3^{16}+1)

⇒ (1/2) × (3^{32}– 1)

**3)** **Answer: C**

√11 + √5 , √14 + √2, √8+ √8,

So, put the value of under root the largest No.

is (√8+ √8)

**4) Answer: B**

(a-b)(a^{2}+ab+b^{2} )/((a^{2}+ab+b^{2}))=(0.5-0.1)=0.4

**5)** **Answer: C**.

36 = 3 × 3 × 2 × 2 = 2^{2} × 3^{2}

No. of positive factors =(2+1) (2+1) = 9

**6) Answer: B**

Total tank capacity = 60

But, B pipe open for = 6 hour

= 6 × 5 = 30

So, remaining capacity = 60 – 30 = 30

Total tank filled by A = (30/6) = 5 hour

Means if will closed at = 10 : 00 + 5 hours

It means = 3 : 00 PM

**7) Answer: C**

(V+S+R) = 15/2

If all three worked together than, they worked = (240*2)/15 = 32 days

**8) Answer: A**

If CP = 100

MRP = 150

Discount = 20% given i.e. 30

So, 150 – 30 = 120

Means profit percentage = 20% above CP.

**9) Answer: D**

CP : SP : MRP

5 6 ⇒ 5 : 6 : 10

3 : 5

If no discount given then Profit percentage = ((10-5)/5) × 100 = 100%

**10) Answer: D**

ATQ,

((4x + 4)/(5x + 4)) = (5/6) =x = 4

So, sum of no. = 9x = 9 × 4 = 36
