Q10) There is a frog who could climb either 1 stair or 3 stairs in one shot. In how many ways he could reach at 10th stair ?

Fibonacci with a gap of 1 : 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 13, 19, 28
Answer : 28
Method 2 :
1 step in 1 way
2 steps in 1 way
3 steps in 2 ways
4 steps in 3 ways
5 steps in 4 ways
6 steps in 6 ways
7 steps in 9 ways
8 steps in 13 ways
9 steps in 19 ways
10 steps in 28 ways
So 28 should be the answerMethod 3 :
x + 3y = 10
(1 , 3 ) > 4
(4 , 2 ) > 6!/4!2! = 15
(7 , 1) > 8!/7! = 8
(10 , 0) > 1
TOTAL = 15 + 4 + 8 + 1 = 28

Q11) If an integer n is to be chosen at random from the integers 1 to 96, inclusive, what is the probability that n(n + 1)(n + 2) will be divisible by 8?
[OA : 5/8]

Q12) If March 1, 2006 was a Wednesday, which day was it on March 1, 2002?

Q13) N is a natural number of at least 5 digits and its leftmost digit is 6. When this 6 is removed from N, the number thus obtained is found to be 1/25 times of N. What is the sum of the digits of N?

Q14) Number of terms in the expansion of (a + b + c)^10
a) 11
b) 21
c) 55
d) 66

Q15) The product of all the factors of a number is equal to the tenth power of the number. N cannot be exactly divisible by which of the following?
a. 90
b.200
c. 210
d. 126

Q16) 2n has 28 factors 3n has 30 factors How many factors will 6n have ?

N = 2^a × 3^b
Factors of 2N = ( a + 2) ( b + 1)=28
Factors of 3N = ( a + 1 )( b + 2 )=30
So a = 5 and b = 3
So N = 2^5 × 3^3
Now Factors of 6N ( 2^6 × 3^4 )
will be 7 × 5 = 35

Q17) If a three digit number ‘abc’ has 3 factors, how many factors does the 6digit number ‘abcabc’ have?
