Explanation (c) (a) Since, 161 < (13)2
If 161 is a prime number, then this is not divisible by any of the
numbers, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11. But 161 is divisible by 7. Hence, 161 is not
a prime number.
(b) 171 < (14)2
For prime number, 171, is not divisible by any of the numbers

prime number.
(c) 173 < (14)2
For prime number 173, is not divisible by any of the numbers
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13. Hence, 173 is a prime number.
(d) 221 < (15)2
For prime number 221, is not divisible by any of the numbers
2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13. But it is divisible by 13. Hence, 221 is not a
prime number.

(a) 18 Only
(c) 60 Only
Explanation (d) By taking options one by one.
(a) 3 q + 9 = 18 Þ q = 3
\ Numbers are 3, 5, 9, which are not all prime.
47. Assertion (A) Zero is a whole number.
(b) 3 q + 9 = 42 Þ q = 11
Reason (R) Every integer is a whole number.
(a) A and R are correct, and R is correct explanation of A.
(b) A and R are correct, but R is not correct explanation of
A.
(c) A is correct but R is wrong.
(d) A is wrong but R is correct.
Explanation (c) Zero is a whole number and every integer is not a
whole number, because negative integers is not whole numbers.
Therefore, A is correct and R is wrong.
48. A three-digit number has digits h, t, u (from left to
right) with h > u. If the digits are reversed and the
number thus formed is subtracted from the
original number, the unit’s digit in the resulting
number is 4. What are the other two digits of the
resulting number from left to right?
(a) 5 and 9
(b) 9 and 5
(c) 5 and 4
(d) 4 and 5
Explanation (a) Q Original number = h ´ 100 + t ´ 10 + u
Number obtained by reversing digits
= u ´ 100 + t ´ 10 + h
\ Required number = ( h ´ 100 + t ´ 10 + u )
- (u ´ 100 + t ´ 10 + h)
= 99 ( h - u )
But the unit’s place digit in above number is 4, therefore ( h - u )
should be 6, then number is 594. Whose digits are 5, 9, 4
respectively.
49. Let p denote the product 2 × 3 × 5 ¼59 × 61 of all
primes from 2 to 61. Consider the sequence
p + n (2 £ n £ 59). What is the number of primes in
this sequence? (n is a natural number)
(a) 0
(c) 17
(b) 16
(d) 58
Explanation (a) Given, p = 2 × 3 × 5¼¼59 × 61 = ...........0
Also,
2 £ n £ 59
Now, we check the sequence p + n.
Since, unit digit of p is zero. Therefore, for every even value of
n, ( p + n) is always divisible.
For odd value of n = 3, 5, ¼¼ , 59
Take
\
(b) 42 Only
(d) Both (b) and (c)
n=3
p + n = p + 3 = (2 × 3 × 5¼¼59 × 61 + 3)
= 3 (2 × 5¼¼59 × 61 + 1), which is divisible.
\ Numbers are 11, 13, 17, which are all prime.
(c) 3 q + 9 = 60 Þ q = 17
Numbers are 17, 19, 23 which are all primes.
Hence, option (d) is correct.
51. Which one of the following is correct?
The sum of two irrational numbers
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
is always a natural of irrational
may be rational or irrational
is always a rational number
is always an irrational number
Explanation (b) Let two rational numbers be 3 and 2 .
\( 3 +
2 ) is an irrational number
Now, Let two rational numbers be 3 - 2 , 2 .
(3 - 2 ) +
\
2 = 3 (rational)
Hence, sum of two irrational numbers may be rational or
irrational.
52. Which one of the following is correct?
The number 222222 is
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
divisible by 3 but not divisible by 7
divisible by 3 and 7 but not divisible by 11
divisible by 2 and 7 but not divisible by 11
divisible by 3, 7 and 11
Explanation (d) Given, number is 222222.
Here, sum of digits = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 12 which is
divisible by 3.
So, given number is divisible by 3.
Now, sum of odd terms of digits - Sum of even terms of digits
= 6 - 6 = 0, it is divisible by 11.
Since, in a number a digit repeated six times, then this number is
divisible by 7, 11 and 13.
\ The given number is divisible by 3, 7 and 11.
53. In a division operation, the divisor is 5 times the
quotient and twice the remainder. If the remainder
is 15, then what is the dividend?
(a) 175
(b) 185
(c) 195
Explanation (c) Dividend = D ´ Q + R
Given,
D = 5 Q and D = 2 R
When
R = 15, D = 2 ´ 15 = 30
D 30
Q=
=
=6
5
5
Similarly, for even values of n, p + n is divisible.
\
Hence, it is clear that p + n is always divisible by any number. So,
there is no prime number exist in this sequence.
\
Dividend = 30 ´ 6 + 15 = 195

x and y are rational
x is irrational and y is irrational
x is irrational and y is rational
x and y are both irrational
Explanation (b)
d2
Explanation (a) Here, (25)2 > 589
Then, prime numbers less than 25 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23.
Since, 589 is divisible by 19, then 589 is a composite number.
57. What least number should be subtracted from
26492518 so that the resulting number is divisible
by 3 but not by 9?

Obviously 4 is the least number which should be subtracted from
the number 26492518. So that the resulting number is divisible by
3 but not by 9.

(d) 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8
Explanation (d) Since, a ten-digit number is divisible by 4 as well as by
5, then this number must be divisible by 20.
We known that any number is divisible by 20, if last two digits is
divisible by 20. It means unit place will be zero and Ten’s place
may be 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8.
59. By adding x to 1254934, the resulting number
= Irrational
55. Which one of the following is correct?
an + b n is divisible by a - b.
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
What could be the possible digit at the ten’s place
in the given number?
for all integral values of n
when n is an even integer
when n is an odd integer
for no integral value of n
Explanation (d) When n is odd, then one of the factor of a n + b n is
( a + b ). When n is even, then there is no factor of a n + b n.
Hence, a n + b n is not divisible by ( a - b ) for any integral value of n.
becomes divisible by 11, while adding y to
1254934 makes the resulting number divisible by
3. Which one of the following is the set of values
for x and y?
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
x = 1, y = 1
x = 1, y = - 1
x = - 1, y = 1
x = - 1, y = - 1
Explanation (b) Difference of sums of even and odd places digit of
1254934
= (1 + 5 + 9 + 4) - (2 + 4 + 3)
= 19 - 9 = 10

56. Which one of the following numbers is a composite
numbers?
(a) 589
(c) 569
(b) 571
(d) 563
This number will be divisible by 11 after adding x, if the value of x
is 1.
Also, the sum of digits of 1254934
= 1 + 2 + 5 + 4 + 9 + 3 + 4 = 28
1254934 will be divisible by 3, after adding y, if the value of y is - 1.
