  • Q63) In a society, the newspapers of only three languages – Marathi, Gujarati and Hindi – are distributed. Each family residing in the society reads newspapers of at least one of the three languages. The total number of families reading newspapers of exactly one language can be divided into three types only Marathi, only Gujarati and only Hindi. These three numbers are in A.P., in no particular order. Similarly, the three types of families reading newspapers of exactly two languages are also in A.P. The number of families reading newspapers of all the three languages is one-tenth of the number of families reading only Gujarati newspapers, which in turn is two-third of the number of families reading only Hindi newspapers. The number of families reading both Marathi and Gujarati newspapers is 15, whereas the number of families reading both Gujarati and Hindi newspapers is 19. The number of families reading Hindi newspapers is 70, which is more than the number of families reading Marathi newspapers.

    1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13…

  • Q65) How many negative integer solutions exist for x^2 – y^2 = 400?



  • Q66) X is the set of all pairs (q, p) where p and q satisfy N ≥ p > q ≥ 1, where N ≥ 4. If any two distinct members in X have one number in common, they are called “mates”. Otherwise they are called “non-mates”. For example if N = 4, then X = {(3, 4), (2, 3), (2, 4), (1, 2), (1, 3), (1, 4)}. In X, (1, 3) and (1, 4) are mates (2, 3) and (3, 4) are also mates but (3, 4) and (1, 2) are non-mates.

    For any N, the number of non-mates of each
    member of X is
    (1)1/2(N^2 − 3N + 2)
    (2) 2N − 5
    (3) 3N − 10
    (4)1/2(N^2 − 5N + 6)
    (5)1/2(N^2 − 7N + 16)

    For any N, the number of common mates of
    two mates in X is
    (1) N − 2
    (2) 3N − 8
    (3)1/2(N^2 − 6N + 12)
    (4) N − 1
    (5)1/2(N^2 − 3N)
