1. Which of the following is not a linear equation in one variable?

A. 33z+5

B. 33(x+y)

C. 33x+5

D. 33y+5

Answer: B

Explanation: In 33(x+y), x and y are two variables.

2. The solution of 2x-3=7 is:

A. 5

B. 7

C. 12

D. 11

Answer: A

Explanation: 2x-3=7


x=10/2 = 5

3. The solution of 2y + 9 = 4 is:

A. 9/2

B. 4/9

C. -⅖

D. -5/2

Answer: D

Explanation: 2y+9 = 4

2y = 4-9 = -5


4. The solution of y/5 = 10 is:

A. 15

B. 10

C. 50

D. 5

Answer: C

Explanation: y/5 = 10

y = 5×10 = 50

5. What should be added to -7/3 to get 3/7?

A. 21/58

B. 58/21

C. 47/21

D. 50/21

Answer: B

Explanation: Let the number be x

-7/3+x = 3/7

x=3/7+7/3 = (9+49)/21 = 58/21

6. The perimeter of the rectangle is 20cm. If the length of the rectangle is 6cm, then its breadth will be:

A. 4 cm

B. 6 cm

C. 10 cm

D. 14 cm

Answer: A

Explanation: Perimeter of rectangle = 2(Length+Breadth)

20 = 2(6+x)

6+x = 20/2

6+x = 10

x = 10-6

x=4 cm

7. The age of the father is three times the age of the son. If the age of the son is 15 years old, then the age of the father is:

A. 50 years

B. 55 years

C. 40 years

D. 45 years

Answer: D

Explanation: Let the age of the father is x

Given: x = 3 × (age of son) = 3 × (15) = 45 years

8. The difference between two whole numbers is 66. The ratio of the two numbers is 2: 5. The two numbers are:

A. 60 and 6

B. 100 and 33

C. 110 and 44

D. 99 and 33

Answer: C

Explanation: Let the two numbers be 2x and 5x since they are in the ratio of 2:5.

The difference between 5x and 2x = 66

5x – 2x = 66

3x = 66

x = 22

Hence, 2x = 2(22) = 44 and 5x = 5(22) = 110.

9. Three consecutive integers add up to 51. The integers are:

A. 16,17,18

B. 15,16,17

C. 17,18,19

D. 18,19,20

Answer: A

Explanation: Let the three consecutive integers be x, x+1, x+2

x+(x+1)+(x+2) = 51

3x+3 = 51

3x = 51 – 3

x = 48/3 = 16

x+1 = 16+1=17

x+2 = x+2 = 18

10. The solution for 3m = 5m – (8/5) is:

A. 8/5

B. ⅘

C. 5/4

D. 4/3

Answer: B

Explanation: 3m = 5m – (8/5)

8/5 = 5m – 3m

2m = 8/5

m = 8/10 = 4/5

  16. this was helpful

    1. It was really helpful.. The questions too were very nice but why in the last question i.e 10th question -8/5 became 8/5…?? Where did the minus sign gone..??

      1. The sign of the number changes when we move it from one side of the equality sign (=) to the other side.
        Here, -8/5 is moved from Right-hand side to left-hand side, thus it became positive whereas ‘3m’ is moved from LHS to RHS and it became negative.
