**Question 1:****∫ _{-π/2}^{π/2}([x] – [sinx ])dx = (Where [.] represents G.I.F)**

a. -2

b. 1

c. 0

d. -1

**Answer: (c)**

I = ∫_{-π/2}^{π/2}([x] – [sinx ])dx

Using the property ∫_{-a}^{a }f(x)dx = ∫_{0}^{a} f(x)dx + ∫_{0}^{a} f(-x)dx

I = ∫_{0}^{π/2 }([x] + [-x] )dx – ∫_{0}^{π/2}([sin x] + [-sin x])dx

= 0

Hence option c is the answer.

**Question 2: If **

**\(\begin{array}{l}\lim_{x\to 0}\frac{\alpha x(1+x+\frac{x^{2}}{2!}+\frac{x^{3}}{3!}+…)-\beta (x-\frac{x^{2}}{2}+\frac{x^{3}}{3}+…)+\gamma x^{2}(1-x+\frac{x^{2}}{2!}-\frac{x^{3}}{3!}+…)}{x^{3}}=10\end{array} \)**

**, find the value of α + β + γ**

**Answer: (3)**

⇒ α – β = 0

⇒ α = β

⇒ α + β/2 + γ = 0

⇒ γ = -3β/2

⇒ α/2 – β/3 – γ = 10

⇒ β = 6, α = 6, γ = -9

So, the value of α + β + γ = 3

**Question 3: The value of x satisfying the equation log _{(x+1)}(2x^{2}+7x+5) + log_{(2x+5)}(x+1)^{2 }= 4 is:**

a. -2

b. 2

c. -4

d. 4

**Answer: (b)**

log_{(x+1)} (2x+5)(x+1) + log_{(2x+5) }(x+1)^{2 }= 4

1+ log_{(x+1)} (2x+5) + 2log_{(2x+5)} (x+1) = 4

Put log_{(x+1)} (2x+5) = t

∴1+ t + 2/t = 4

⇒ t^{2 }+ t + 2 = 4t

⇒ t^{2 }– 3t + 2 = 0

t = 1, t = 2

For t = 1

2x+5 = x + 1

⇒ x = -4 (Rejected)

For t = 2

2x+5 = (x + 1)^{2}

x = 2, x = -2 (Rejected)

Hence option b is the answer.

**Question 4: Mean of 6 observations is 10 and their variance is 20/3 . If observations are 15, 11, 10, 7, a, b then |a-b| is equal to:**

a. 2

b. 1

c. 3

d. 4

**Answer: (b)**

Mean = 10

(7+10+11+15+a+b)/6 = 10

a + b = 17

Variance = 20/3

(49+100+121+225+a^{2}+b^{2})/6 – 100 = 20/3

a^{2}+b^{2} = 145

(a+b)^{2} = 289

ab = 72

(a-b)^{2} = (a+b)^{2 }– 4ab

(a-b)^{2} = 289 – 288 = 1

|a-b| = 1

Hence option b is the answer.

**Question 5: If f(x) = x+1, then find **

**\(\begin{array}{l}\lim_{n\to \infty }\frac{1}{n}\left [ f(0)+f(\frac{5}{n})+ f(\frac{10}{n})+…+f(\frac{5(n-1)}{n})\right ]\end{array} \)**

a. 7/2

b. 3/2

c. 5/2

d. 1/2

**Answer: (a)**

= ∫_{0}^{1} f(5x)

= ∫_{0}^{1}(5x+1) dx

= ((5x^{2}/2) + x)_{0}^{1}

= (5/2) + 1

= 7/2

Hence option a is the answer.

**Question 6: Sum of 21 terms of series **

**\(\begin{array}{l}log_{9^{\frac{1}{2}}}x + log_{9^{\frac{1}{3}}}x + log_{9^{\frac{1}{4}}}x……….\end{array} \)**

**is 252, then the value of x is:**

a. 7

b. 243

c. 9

d. 81

**Answer: (c)**

2 log_{9 }x + 3 log_{9 }x + 4 log_{9 }x………….21 terms

= (2 + 3 + 4 + 5…+ 22) log_{9}x

= (21/2)(2 + 22) log_{9}x

= 21×12 log_{9}x

= 252 log_{9}x

Given sum = 252

⇒ log_{9} x = 1

⇒ x = 9

Hence option c is the answer.

**Question 7: If Re [(1+cos θ + 2i sin θ)] = 4, then the value of θ is**

a. π/2

b. π/3

c. -π/2

d. π

**Answer: (d)**

^{2}θ + 2i sin θ)] ×(1+cos θ – 2i sin θ)/(1 + cos θ – 2i sin θ)

= (1 + cos θ – 2i sin θ)/((1 + cos θ)^{2}+ 4 sin^{2}θ)

⇒ (1 + cos θ)/(1 + cos^{2}θ + 2 cos θ + 4 sin^{2}θ) = 4

⇒ (1 + cos θ)/(1 + cos^{2}θ + 2cosθ + 4 – 4 cos^{2}θ) = 4

⇒ (1 + cos θ)/(5 + 2 cos θ – 3 cos^{2} θ) = 4

⇒ 1 + cos θ = 20 + 8 cos θ – 12 cos^{2} θ

12cos^{2}θ – 7cos θ -19 = 0

⇒ 12cos^{2}θ -19cos θ + 12cos θ – 19 = 0

⇒ cos θ(12cos θ -19) + 1(12cos θ -19) = 0

⇒ cos θ = -1 or cosθ = 19/12 (rejected)

⇒ θ = π

Hence option d is the answer.

**Question 8: If x = ay-1 = z-2, and x = 3y-2 = bz-2 lie in same plane, then the value of a, b is**

a. a = 2,b = 3

b. a = 1, b = 1

c. b = 1, a ∈ R-{0}

d. a = 3,b = 2

**Answer:(c)**

(x/1) = (y-1/a)/(1/a) = (z-2)/1

x = (y-⅔)/(⅓) = (z-2/b)/(1/b)

⇒ (1/ab) – (1/a) = 0

⇒ b = 1, a∈ R-{0}

Hence option c is the answer.

**Question 9: If **

**\(\begin{array}{l}P(\bar{A}\cap B)+P(A\cap \bar{B})= 1-k\end{array} \)**

**,**

**\(\begin{array}{l}P(\bar{A}\cap C)+P(A\cap \bar{C})= 1-2k\end{array} \)**

**,**

**\(\begin{array}{l}P(\bar{B}\cap C)+P( \bar{C}\cap B)= 1-k\end{array} \)**

**P(A∩B∩C) = k ^{2}, k ∈(0, 1). Then the value of P (at least one of A, B, C) is**

a. >1/2

b. [⅛, ¼]

c. < 1/4

d. 1/4

**Answer: (a)**

P(A) + P(B) – 2P(A∩B) = 1 – k

P(A) + P(C) – 2P(A∩C) = 1 – 2k

P(B) + P(C) – 2P(B∩C) = 1 – k

P(A⋃B⋃C) = P(A) + P(B) + P(C) – P(A∩B) – P(B∩C) – P(A∩C) + P(A∩B∩C)

= (3 – 4k)/2) + k^{2}

= (2k^{2} – 4k + 3)/2

Since the value of 2k^{2} – 4k + 3 is greater than 1

P(A⋃B⋃C) = 1/2

Hence option a is the answer.

**Question 10: If f(x) = (5x+3)/(6x+a) and f(f(x) = x then the value of a is:**

a. -5

b. 5

c. 6

d. -6

**Answer: (a)**

f(f(x) = (5f(x)+3)/(6f(x)+a) = x

⇒ 5f(x)+3 = 6xf(x)+ax

[(25x+15)/(6x+a)] + 3 = 6x((5x+3)/(6x+a)) + ax⇒ 25x+15+18x+3a = 30x^{2}+18x+6ax^{2}+a^{2}x

⇒(30+6a)x^{2 }+ (a^{2}-25)x – (3a+15)=0

⇒6(a+5)x^{2 }+ (a^{2}-25)x – (3a+15) = 0,

a + 5 = 0

a = -5

Hence option a is the answer.

**Question 11: If **

**\(\begin{array}{l}g(t)=\begin{Bmatrix} max(t^{3}-6t^{2}+9t-3,0), & t \; belongs\: to\: [0,3] \\ 4-t & t \; belongs\: to\:(3,4) \end{Bmatrix}\end{array} \)**

**then the number of points at which g(t) is non differentiable is:**

a. 1

b. 3

c. 2

d. 4

**Answer: (b)**

y = t^{3}– 6t^{2 }+ 9t – 3

y’ = 3t^{2}-12t + 9

= 3(t^{2}– 4t + 3)

So total 3 points.

Hence option b is the answer.

**Question 12: Given below are three conditions:**

**A: If 2+4 = 7, then 3+4 = 8 **

**B: if 3+5 = 8, then earth is flat **

**C: if A and B are true, then 5+4 = 11**

**Choose the correct option.**

**a. A is true, B and C are false**

**b. B is true, A and C are false**

**c. C is true, A and B are false**

**d. B is false, A and C are true**

**Answer: (d)**

Truth table p → q

p | q | p→ q |

T | T | T |

T | F | F |

F | T | T |

F | F | T |

A is true, B is false, C is true

Hence option d is the answer.

**Question 13: If A = **

**\(\begin{array}{l}\begin{bmatrix} 1 & 0\\ 0& 1 \end{bmatrix}\end{array} \)**

**1\(\begin{array}{l}B\sum_{r=1}^{2021}A^{r}\end{array} \) then value of |B| is**

a. 2021

b. 2021^{2}

c. -2021

d. 0

**Answer: (b)**

A = I, B= I+I+I+….,2021 times

|B| = 2021^{2}

Hence option b is the answer.

**Question 14: If element of matrix A = [a _{ij}]_{(3×3)} where **

**\(\begin{array}{l}A = \left\{\begin{matrix} (-1)^{j-i} &i<j \\ 2& i=j\\ (-1)^{i+j}& i>j \end{matrix}\right.\end{array} \)**

**, then the value of |3 adj(2A**

^{-1})| is:

a. 72

b. 36

c. 108

d. 48

**Answer: (c)**

A =

|A| = 2(4-1)+1(-2+1)+1(1-2)

= 2(3)+1(-1)+1(-1)

= 4

|3 adj(2A^{-1})| = 3^{3}|adj(2A^{-1})|

= 3^{3}×|2A^{-1}|^{2}

= 3^{3}×2^{6}×|A^{−1}|^{2}

= 3^{3}×2^{6}×1/|A|^{2}

= 108

Hence option c is the answer.

**Question 15: In a ∆ABC, if **

**\(\begin{array}{l}\left | \overrightarrow{AB} \right |=7\end{array} \)**

**,\(\begin{array}{l}\left | \overrightarrow{BC} \right |=5\end{array} \), and \(\begin{array}{l}\left | \overrightarrow{CA} \right |=3\end{array} \). If the projection of \(\begin{array}{l}\overrightarrow{BC}\end{array} \) on \(\begin{array}{l}\overrightarrow{CA}\end{array} \) is n/2, then the value of n is **

**Answer: 5/2**

Projection of

5|(3^{2}+5^{2}-7^{2})/(2.3.5)| = 5|-15/30|

= 5/2

**Question 16: The value of tan (2 tan ^{-1 }(3/5) + sin^{-1}(5/13)) is:**

a. 220/21

b. 110/21

c. 55/21

d. 20/11

**Answer: (a)**

tan (tan^{-1} (6/5)/(1-(9/5)) + tan^{-1} (5/12))

= tan (tan^{-1} (15/8) + tan^{-1} (5/12))

= ((15/8) + (5/12))/(1 – (15/8)(5/12)

= 220/21

Hence option a is the answer.

**Question 17: If (α, β) is the point on y ^{2 }= 6x, that is closest to (3, 3/2) then find 2(α+β)**

a. 6

b. 9

c. 7

d. 5

**Answer: (b)**

Equation of normal at (α, β) is

y-β = (-β/2a)(x-α)

⇒ 3y-3β = -β(x-α)

For shortest distance normal will pass through (3, 3/2)

So (9/2) – 3β = -3β-βα

αβ = 9/2⋯(1)

Now from y^{2} = 6x

β^{2 }= 6α⋯(2)

From (1) and (2) we get α = 3/2, β = 3

2(α+β) = 2(3/2 + 3)

= 2(9/2)

= 9

Hence option b is the answer.

**Question 18: Two circles pass through (-1, 4) and their centres lie on x ^{2}+y^{2}+2x+4y = 4. If r_{1} and r_{2} are maximum and minimum radii and r_{1}/r_{2} = a+b√2, then the value of a+b is**

**Answer: 3**

Given circle

(x+1)^{2}+(y+2)^{2 }= 3^{2}

Any point on the circle is (3 cos θ – 1,3 sin θ – 2)

Radius of the circles which passes through (-1, 4)

r = √((3 cos θ – 1 + 1)^{2} + (3 sin θ – 2 – 4)^{2})

=√(9 cos^{2} θ + 9 sin^{2 }θ + 36 – 36 sin θ)

= √(45 – 36 sin θ)

r_{max} = 9 = r_{1} and r_{min} = 3 = r_{2}

⇒ r_{1}/r_{2} = 9/3 = 3

⇒ 3 + 0√2

= a+b

= 3

**Question 19: If ∆ABC is a right-angled triangle with sides a,b and c and smallest angle θ. If 1/a, 1/b and 1/c are also the sides of the right-angle triangle then find sin θ.**

**a. **√((3-√5)/2)

**b. **(3-√5)/2

**c. **√((3+√5)/2)

**d. **(3+√5)/2

**Answer: a**

Let a>b>c

sin θ = c/a

1/a < 1/b < 1/c

1/c^{2} = 1/a^{2} + 1/b^{2}

1 = (c^{2}/a^{2}) + (c^{2}/b^{2})

1 = (c^{2}/a^{2}) + (c^{2}/(a^{2} – c^{2})) (As b^{2} + c^{2} = a^{2})

1 = sin^{2}θ + 1/((a^{2}/c^{2})-1)

= (sin^{2} θ) + (1/(cosec^{2}θ-1))

(1-sin^{2} θ + 1)/(cosec^{2} θ -1) = 1

⇒ sin^{2} θ + cosec^{2} θ = 3

Put sin^{2} θ = t

⇒ t^{4} – 3t^{2} + 1 = 0

⇒ t^{2} = (3±√5)/2

So sin θ = √((3-√5)/2)

Hence option a is the answer.
