Solution

## If x = 2, y = - 3 is a unique solution of any pair of equation, then these values must satisfy both the equations in that pair of equations. Substituting these values in the equations given in the options, From option (A) LHS = x + y = (2) + (-3) = 2 – 3 = - 1 ≠ RHS ∴ A cannot be the answer From option (B) LHS = 2x + 5y = 2(2) + 5(-3) = 4 – 15 = - 11 = RHS LHS = 4x + 10y = 4(2) + 10( - 3) = 8 – 30 = -22 = RHS From option (C) LHS = 2x - y = 2(2) - (-3) = 4 + 3 = 7 ≠ RHS ∴ C cannot be the answer From option (D) LHS = x - 4y + 14 = (2) - 4(-3) + 14 = 2 + 12 + 14 = 28 ≠ RHS ∴ D cannot be the answer ∴ , Required answer is (B)
