Answer: (4)

3. The general solution of the differential equation v(1+x2+y2+x2y2)+xy(dy/dx) = 0

(where C is a constant of integration)

1)

$$\begin{array}{l}\sqrt{1+y^{2}}+\sqrt{1+x^{2}}= \frac{1}{2}log_{e}\left ( \frac{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}-1}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}+1} \right )+c\end{array}$$

2)
$$\begin{array}{l}\sqrt{1+y^{2}}-\sqrt{1+x^{2}}= \frac{1}{2}log_{e}\left ( \frac{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}-1}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}+1} \right )+c\end{array}$$

3)
$$\begin{array}{l}\sqrt{1+y^{2}}+\sqrt{1+x^{2}}= \frac{1}{2}log_{e}\left ( \frac{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}+1}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}-1} \right )+c\end{array}$$

4)
$$\begin{array}{l}\sqrt{1+y^{2}}-\sqrt{1+x^{2}}= \frac{1}{2}log_{e}\left ( \frac{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}+1}{\sqrt{1+x^{2}}-1} \right )+c\end{array}$$

1+y2 = z2

2ydy = 2zdz

$$\begin{array}{l}\int \frac{t.tdt}{t^{2}-1}=-\int \frac{zdx}{z}\end{array}$$

((t2-1+1)/(t2-1) )dt = -z+c

1dt+(1/t2-1)dt = -z+c

t+(1/2)ln((t-1)/(t+1)) = -z+c

v(1+x2)+(1/2)ln(v(1+x2)-1/(v(1+x2 )+1) = -v(1+y2)+c

v(1+y2)+ v(1+x2) = (½)ln(v(1+x2)+1)/(v(1+x2 )-1))+c

Answer: (3)

4. Let L1 be a tangent to the parabola y2 = 4(x+1) and L2 be a tangent to the parabola y2 = 8(x+2) such that L1 and L2 intersect at right angles. Then L1 and L2 meet on the straight line:

1) x+2y = 0
2) x+2 = 0
3) 2x+1 = 0
4) x+3 = 0

Let t1 tangent of y2 = 4(x+1)

L1 : t1y = (x+1)+t12 …….(i)

and t2 tangent of y2 = 8(x+2)

L2 : t2y = (x+2)+2t22 ….(ii)

L1 perpendicular to L2

(1/t1)(1/t2) = -1

t1t2 = -1

t2(i) -t1(ii)

t1t2y = t2(x+1)+ t2. t12

t1t2y = t1(x+2)+2t22. t1

Subtracting above equations

(t2-t1) x+(t2-2t1) + t2t1(t1-2t2) = 0

(t2– t1)x +(t2-2t1)-(t1-2t2) = 0

(t2 -t1) x + 3t2-3t1 = 0

⇒ x+3 = 0

Answer: (4)

1) 1/6
2) 5/6
3) 1/3
4) 7/6

Total area =

$$\begin{array}{l}4 \int_{0}^{1 / 2}\left[(1-x)-\left(\sqrt{\frac{x}{2}}\right)\right] d x\end{array}$$

=

$$\begin{array}{l}4\left[x-\frac{x^{2}}{2}-\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \frac{x^{3 / 2}}{3 / 2} \mid \begin{array}{l} 1 / 2 \\ 0 \end{array}\right]\end{array}$$

= 4[(1/2)-(1/8)-(v2/3)(1/2)3/2]

= 4×5/24

= 5/6

Answer: (2)

6. The shortest distance between the lines (x-1)/0 = (y+1)/-1 = z/1 and x+y+z+1 = 0, 2x-y+z+3 = 0 is:

1) 1
2) 1/v2
3) 1/v3
4) ½

Plane through line of intersection is

x+y+z+1+λ(2x-y+z+3) = 0

It should be parallel to given line

0(1+2λ)-1(1-λ)+1(1 +λ) = 0

⇒ λ = 0

Plane: x+y+z+1 = 0

Shortest distance of (1,-1,0) from this plane

= 1-1+0+1/v(12+12+12)

= 1/v3

Answer: (3)

7. Let a, b, c, d and p be any non zero distinct real numbers such that (a2+b2+c2)p2-2(ab+bc+cd)p +(b2 +c2+d2) = 0. Then:

1) a, c, p are in G.P.
2) a, b, c, d are in G.P.
3) a, b, c, d are in A.P.
4) a, c, p are in A.P.

(a2+b2+c2)p2-2(ab+bc+cd)p +(b2 +c2+d2) = 0

(a2p2-2abp+b2]+[b2p2-2bcp+c2]+[ c2p2-2cdp+d2] = 0

(ap-b)2+(bp -c)2+(cp-d)2 = 0

ap = b

bp = c

cp = d

b/a = c/b = d/c = p

a, b, c, d are in G.P.

Answer: (2)

8. Two families with three members each and one family with four members are to be seated in a row. In how many ways can they be seated so that the same family members are not separated?

1) 2! 3! 4!
2) (3!)3(4!)
3) 3!(4!)3
4) (3!)2(4!)

Total numbers in three families = 3+3+4 = 10

So total arrangement = 10!

Favourable cases

= Arrangement of 3 families × Interval arrangement of family members

= 3!×3!×3!×4!

= (3!)3(4!)

Answer: (2)

9. The values of λ and μ for which the system of linear equations

x+y+z = 2

x+2y+3z = 5

x+3y+λz = μ

has infinitely many solutions are, respectively:

1) 6 and 8
2) 5 and 8
3) 5 and 7
4) 4 and 9

x+y+z = 2

x+2y+3z = 5

x+3y+λz = μ

has infinitely many solutions

Δ =

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} 1 & 1 &1 \\ 1 &2 & 3\\ 1& 3 &\lambda \end{vmatrix}=0\end{array}$$

R2 → R2-R1

R3 → R3-R1

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} 1 & 1 &1 \\ 0 &1 & 2\\ 0& 2 &\lambda -1 \end{vmatrix}=0\end{array}$$

(λ-1-4) = 0

λ = 5

Δ3 =

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} 1 & 1 &2 \\ 1 &2 & 5\\ 1& 3&\mu \end{vmatrix}=0\end{array}$$

R2 → R2-R1

R3 → R3-R1

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} 1 & 1 &2 \\ 0 &1 & 3\\ 0& 2&\mu -2 \end{vmatrix}=0\end{array}$$

(μ-2-6) = 0

⇒ μ = 8

λ = 5, μ = 8

Answer: (2)

10. Let m and M be respectively the minimum and maximum values of

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} \cos ^{2}x& 1+\sin ^{2}x& \sin 2x\\ 1+\cos ^{2}x & \sin ^{2} x&\sin 2x \\ \cos ^{2}x& \sin ^{2} x& 1+\sin 2x \end{vmatrix}\end{array}$$

Then the ordered pair (m, M) is equal to:

1) (-3, -1)
2) (-4, -1)
3) (1, 3)
4) (-3, 3)

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} \cos ^{2}x& 1+\sin ^{2}x& \sin 2x\\ 1+\cos ^{2}x & \sin ^{2} x&\sin 2x \\ \cos ^{2}x& \sin ^{2} x& 1+\sin 2x \end{vmatrix}\end{array}$$

R1 → R1-R2

R3→ R3-R2

$$\begin{array}{l}\begin{vmatrix} -1 &1 &0 \\ 1+\cos ^{2}x& \sin ^{2}x &\sin 2x \\ -1&0 & 1 \end{vmatrix}\end{array}$$

⇒ -1(sin2x) -1(1+cos2x +sin2x)

⇒ -sin2x –cos2x -1- sin2x

= -2-sin2x

So minimum value when sin2x = 1

m = -2-1 = -3

So maximum value when sin2x = -1

(m, M) = (-3, -1)

Answer: (1)

1) 10/99
2) 5/33
3) 15/101
4) 5/101

Case-1

E, O, E, O, E, O, E, O, E, O, E

2b = a+c → Even

⇒ Both a and c should be either even or odd.

P = (6C2+5C2 )/ 11C3 = 5/33

Case -2

O, E, O, E, O, E, O, E, O, E, O

P = (5C2+6C2 )/ 11C3 = 5/33

Total probability = (1/2)×(5/33)+(1/2)×(5/33)

= 5/33

13. If f(x + y) = f(x) f(y) and

$$\begin{array}{l}\sum_{x=1}^{\infty }f(x)=2\end{array}$$
x, y ∈N, where N is the set of all natural number, then the value of f(4)/f(2) is:

1) 2/3
2) 1/9
3) 1/3
4) 4/9

f(x + y) = f(x) f(y)

Put x = 1, y = 1

f(2) = (f(1))2

Put x = 2, y = 1

f(3) = f(2). f(1) = f((1))3

Put x = 2, y = 2

f(4) = f((2))2 = f((1))4

f(n) = (f(1))n

$$\begin{array}{l}\sum_{x=1}^{\infty }f(x)=\end{array}$$
= f(1) + f(2) + f(3) + ……. = 2

⇒ f(1)+f((1))2+f(1))3+… = 2

f(1)/(1-f(1)) = 2

f(1) = 2/3

f(2) = (2/3)2

f(4) = (2/3)4

f(4)/f(2) = (2/3)4(2/3)2 = 4/9

Answer: (4)

14. If {p} denotes the fractional part of the number p, then {3200/8} is equal to:

1) 5/8
2) 1/8
3) 7/8
4) 3/8

{3200/8} = {9100/8} = {(8+1)100/8}

{(100C0 1100+100C1 (8)199+100C2 (82)198+…100C100 8100)/8}

= {(100C0 1100+8k)/8}

= {(1+8k)/8}

= {(1/8)+k} k∈I

= 1/8

Answer: (2)

15. Which of the following points lies on the locus of the foot of perpendicular drawn upon any tangent to the ellipse (x2/4)+(y2/2) = 1 from any of its foci ?

1) (-1,v3)
2) (-2, v3)
3) (-1, v2)
4) (1,2)

Let foot of perpendicular is (h,k)

(x2/4)+(y2/2) = 1 (Given)

a = 2, b = v2

e = v(1-2/4)

= 1/v2

So focus (ae,0) = (v2,0)

Equation of tangent

y = mx+v(a2m2+b2)

y = mx+v(4m2+2)

Passes through (h,k) (k -mh)2 = 4m2+2

line perpendicular to tangent will have slope -1/m

y-0 = -(1/m)(x-v2)

my = -x+v2

(h+mk)2 = 2

Add equation (1) and (2)

k2(1+m2)+h2(1+m2) = 4(1+m2)

h2+k2 = 4

x2+y2 = 4 (auxiliary circle)

(-1,v3) lies on the locus.

1) nv(a-1)
2) v(na-1)
3) a-1
4) v(a-1)

S.D =

$$\begin{array}{l}\sqrt{\frac{\Sigma\left(x_{i}-a\right)^{2}}{n}-\left(\frac{\sum\left(x_{i}-a\right)}{n}\right)^{2}}\end{array}$$

=

$$\begin{array}{l}\sqrt{\left(\frac{n a}{n}\right)-\left(\frac{n}{n}\right)^{2}}=\sqrt{a-1}\end{array}$$

24. The angle of elevation of the top of a hill from a point on the horizontal plane passing through the foot of the hill is found to be 450. After walking a distance of 80 meters towards the top, up a slope inclined at an angle of 300 to the horizontal plane, the angle of elevation of the top of the hill becomes 750. Then the height of the hill (in meters) is:

x = 80 cos 300 = 40v3

y = 80 sin 300 = 40

In ΔADC, tan 450 = h/(x+z)

⇒ h = x+z

⇒h = 40v3+z ..(i)

In ΔEDF

tan 750 = (h-y)/z

2+v3 = (h-40)/z

⇒ z = (h-40)/(2+v3) ..(ii)

Put the value of z from (i)

h-40v3 = (h-40)/(2+v3)

h(1+v3) = 40(2v3+3-1)

h(1+v3) = 80(1+v3)

h = 80
