A.12

B.14

C.6

D.8

Solution: 20 – 8 – 4 – 2

= 20 – 12

Ans. 8

Q.2 Solve √128 – √60 – √121 – __?

A.11

B.21

C.36

D.7

Solution: = √128 – √60 – √121

= √128 – √60 – 11

= √128 – √49

= √128 – 7

= √121

= 11

Ans. 11

Q.3 One fourth of one third of a number is 24. What is this number?

A. 250

B. 287

C. 288

D. 300

X = 24 × 3 × 4

X = 288

Ans. 288

Q.4 In three positive numbers, the product of first and second is 42, second and third is 56 and third and first is 48. What is the third number accordingly?

A.12

B.6

C.7

D.8

Solution:- Let the three numbers be a, b, c

a × b = 42 = 6 × 7

b × c = 56 = 7 × 8

c × a = 48 = 8 × 6

Thus, a × b × c = 6 × 7 × 8

Ans. 8

Q.5 The sum of two numbers is 8060. If one of the numbers is 5256. Then find the other number.

A.2,804

B.4,890

C.6,345

D.3,987

Solution:- According to the question,

first number = 5256

Second number = 8060 – 5256

= 2,804

Hence the second number will be 2,804.
