  • Q19) If 100 items are distributed among X men and Y women (Y > X). Find the probability that the number of items received by men is odd



  • Q20) Some children were standing around a circle. It was observed that the number of distinct pairs in which children were standing was one fifth of the distinct pairs in which children were not standing side by side. Find the number of children



  • Imagine a n sided polygon inside circle
    and all children on vertices of that polygon so number of children =
    now number of diagonals in a polygon of side n
    =nc2 - n
    nc2 (means choose any two vertices and remove n sides )
    it's give n=(nc2-n)/5
    so 5n=nc2-n
    so 6n=nc2
    so n=13



  • Q21) All the possible 5-digit numbers are formed using the digits 1,2,3,4,5 - repetition is allowed. If one of those numbers is selected at random what is the probability that it will have exactly one digit repeated and that too occurring twice

  • Q23) N students are seated at desks in an m x n array, where m, n >= 3. Each student shakes hands with the students who are adjacent horizontally, vertically or diagonally. If there are 81 handshakes, what is N?



  • students those are in middle will shake hands with 8 students
    those who are in corner will shake hands with 3 students
    and those who are in sides will shake hands with 5 students
    now number of handshakes students who are in corner then will be 4 corners so number of handshakes will be 4 * 3/2
    now students who are in middle (m-2) * (n-2) * 8/2
    becuase let m =5 and n =4 then students who are in middle will be=6 then handshakes wll be(5-2) * (4-2) * 8/2 = 48/2 = 24 same here if m and n then number of handhshakes will be (m-2) * (n-2) * 8/2

    now who are in sides of grid if 5 * 4 then number of studets who are in side will be 10 which is nothing but 2m-4+2n-4
    so number of handshakes wiill be (2m+2n-8) * 5/2
    so total handshakes =81

    Solving, you will get
    16 * m * n - 12m - 12n = 316
    m=4 and n=7
    so N = m * n = 28
