• Q27) N is a natural number which gives remainders 1 and 2 when divided by 6 and 5, respectively. All such N’s are written in the ascending order, side by side from left to right. What is the 99th digit from the left?

• Q28) Boxes of 2 types viz. A and B are used for packing balls of 2 different colours. Each of the type A boxescan hold a maximum of 17 blue balls or 19 green balls, and each of the type B boxes can hold amaximum of 18 blue balls or 23 green balls. When all the boxes of type A are to be completely filledwith blue balls and all the boxes of type B with green balls, the total number of balls required is 566. Butwhen the boxes of type A are to be completely filled with green balls and the boxes of type B with blueballs, the total number of balls required is 49 less. How many boxes are there? (All balls of the same colour and are identical.)
