**1. An integer can be:**

A. Only Positive

B. Only Negative

C. Both positive and negative

D. None of the above

Answer: **C**

Explanation: An integer can be both positive and negative as well as zero.

i.e. …-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3,….

**2. A rational number can be represented in the form of:**

A. p/q

B. pq

C. p+q

D. p-q

Answer: **A**

Explanation: A rational number can be represented in the form p/q where p and q are integers and q is not equal to zero.

**3. The value of ½ x ⅗ is equal to:**

A. ½

B. 3/10

C. ⅗

D. ⅖

Answer: **B**

Explanation: ½ x ⅗ = (1 x 3)/(2 x 5) = 3/10

**4. The value of (½) ÷ (⅗) is equal to:**

A. 3/10

B. ⅗

C. 6/5

D. ⅚

Answer: **D**

Explanation: (½) ÷ (⅗) = (½) x (5/3) = (1 x 5)/(2 x 3) = ⅚

**5. The value of ½ + ¼ is equal to:**

A. ¾

B. 3/2

C. ⅔

D. 1

Answer: **A**

Explanation: ½ + ¼

Making the denominator equal:

2/4 + ¼ = (2 + 1)/4 = ¾

**6. The value of (5/4) – (8/3) is:**

A. 17/12

B. -17/12

C. 12/17

D. -12/17

Answer: **B**

Explanation: 5/4 – 8/3

Making the denominator equal:

[(5/4) x (3/3)] – [(8/3) x (4/4)]= (15/12) – (32/12)

= (15 – 32)/12

= -17/12

**7. The associative property is applicable to:**

A. Addition and subtraction

B. Multiplication and division

C. Addition and Multiplication

D. Subtraction and Division

Answer: **C**

Explanation: As per associative property:

A + (B + C) = (A + B) + C

A × (B × C) = (A × B) × C

**8. The value of (-10/3) x (-15/2) x (17/19) x 0 is:**

A. 0

B. 22.66

C. 20

D. 35

Answer: **A**

Explanation: Any number multiplied by zero is equal to zero.

**9. The additive identity of rational numbers is:**

A. 0

B. 1

C. 2

D. -1

Answer: **A**

Explanation: Any number added to zero is equal to the number itself.

Ex: 5+0 = 5

Therefore, 0 is the additive identity of rational numbers.

**10. The multiplicative identity of rational numbers is:**

A. 0

B. 1

C. 2

D. -1

Answer: **B**

Explanation: Any number multiplied by 1 is equal to the number itself.

Ex: 5 x 1 = 5

Therefore, 1 is the multiplicative identity of rational numbers.

**11. What is the sum of ⅔ and 4/9?**

A. 6/3

B. 6/9

C. 10/9

D. 10/3

Answer: **C.10/9**

Solution: ⅔ + 4/9

⇒ ⅔ x (3/3) + 4/9

⇒ 6/9 + 4/9

⇒ 10/9

**12. What is the product of 2/9 and ¾?**

A. ⅙

B. ⅔

C. 1/9

D. ¼

Answer: **A. ⅙**

Solution: The product of 2/9 and ¾:

⇒ 2/9 x ¾

⇒ (2 x 3)/(9 x 4)

⇒ (2 x 3)/(3 x 3 x 2 x 2)

By cancelling the common terms from numerator and denominator, we get;

⇒ 1/(3×2)

⇒ ⅙

**13. What is the reciprocal of 1/9?**

A. 9

B. 0

C. 1

D. None of the above

Answer: **A. 9**

1/9 x 9 = 1

**14. What is the value of 100 divided by 0?**

A. 0

B. 100

C. 1

D. Undefined

Answer: **D. Undefined**

100/0 = undefined

**15. Which of the following is commutative for rational numbers?**

A. Addition and subtraction

B. Addition and multiplication

C. Multiplication and division

D. Subtraction and division

Answer: **B. Addition and multiplication**

**16. Division of rational numbers is associative.**

A. True

B. False

Answer: **B. False.**

Explanation: Division of rational numbers is not associative.

For example,

2/5 ÷ (1/2 ÷ 1/4) = 0.2

(2/5 ÷ 1/2) ÷ 1/4 = 3.2

Hence, 2/5 ÷ (1/2 ÷ 1/4) ≠ (2/5 ÷ 1/2) ÷ 1/4

**17. What is the value of ¾ + ⅚ + 2/7?**

A. 10/84

B. 134/84

C. 157/84

D. 167/84

Answer: **C. 157/84**

Solution: Given,

¾+⅚+2/7

LCM of 4, 6 and 7 = 84

Now, making the denominators the same and adding the given rational numbers, we get;

⇒ 63/84 + 70/84 + 24/84

⇒ 157/84

**18. Find the additive inverse of 11/7?**

A. 7/11

B. -7/11

C. 11/7

D.-11/7

Answer: **D. -11/7**

Explanation: When a number is added to its additive inverse, then the result is zero,

11/7 – 11/7 = 0

**19. How many rational numbers are there in between ¾ and 1?**

A. 0

B. 1

C. 2

D. Countless

Answer: **D. Countless**

Explanation: We can write ¾ as 30/40 and 1 as 40/40.

Hence the rational numbers between them are:

31/40, 32/40, 33/40, 34/40,35/40,36/40, 37/40, 38/40, 39/40.

Note: There are countless rational numbers between any two rational numbers.

**20. What should be subtracted from -⅔ to get -1?**

A. ⅓

B. -⅓

C. ⅔

D. -⅔

Answer: **A. ⅓**

Solution: Let x is subtracted from -⅔.

-⅔ – x = -1

-x = -1 + ⅔

-x = -⅓

x = ⅓

For division, identity is 1 and for subtraction, identity is 0.

If we divide any number by 1, the number remains the same.

Similarly, if we subtract 0 from any number, the number remains the same.

very nice explaination thank you
