Directions (8-10): In each of these questions, two equations (I) and (II) are given. You have to solve both the equations and give answer

Q9. I.  5x^2 – 11x +6 = 0                  II.y^2 -15y +56 = 0

Q10. I.x^2 = 1296                     II.y(y+7) + 12 = 0

Answer & Explanation


1.(1) Required speed = 430/(11 : 45pm-1: 00 pm) = 430/10: 45 = 40 kmph

2.(5) Total time taken = 11 am – 1 pm = 22 hours

Total halt time = 5 + 10 + 20 + 5 + 5 = 45 minute

if there is no halt then time taken

22 hr – 45 minutes = 21 hr 15 min

So, Required speed = (1140)/21(1/4) = 53 (11/17) kmph.


3.(2), Total income of Railways from Kanyakumari to Madurai

= (fare of adult × No of adult) + (fare of child × No. of children)


4.(2) No. of adults arriving at Renigunta

= (250 + 320 + 150 + 100 + 120 + 80) – (100 + 50 + 230 + 80 + 90)

= 470

No. of children arriving at Renigunita

= (70 + 90 + 70 + 60 + 40 + 20) – (20 + 30 + 50 + 30 + 10) = 210

Required ratio = 470 : 210 = 47 : 21


5.(3) The fare paid by the family = fare of 6 adults + fare. Of 4 children

= 6 × (590 – 200) + 4(590 – 200) × 2/5 = 2964


6.(3) P(E) = 28C2/ 52C2 = 63/221


7.(2) n(E) = (1,1), (1,2), (1,4), (1,6), (2,1), (2,3), (2,5), (3,2) (3,4), (4,1) (4,3) (5,2), (5,6), (6, 1), (6,5),


P(E) = 15/36 = 5/12


8.(5) x = 3,  -10

Y = ± 8


9.(2) x = 1, 6/5

y = 8, 7


10.(5) x = ± 36

Y = – 4, – 3
