**Mark the correct alternative in each of the following:**

**1. The difference between the place value and face value of 8 in 658742 is**

**(a) 0 (b) 42 (c) 735 (d) 693**

**Solution:**

The given options are incorrect.

Place value of 8 in 6,58,742 = 8,000

Face value of 8 = 8

Difference between them = 8,000 − 8 = 7,992

**2. The difference between the place values of 6 and 3 in 256839 is **

**(a) 3 (b) 9 (c) 6800 (d) 5930**

**Solution:**

The given options are incorrect.

Place value of 6 in 2,56,839 = 6,000

The place value of 3 in 2,56,839 = 30

Difference between them = 6,000 − 30 = 5,970

**3. The difference of the smallest three digit number and the largest two digit number is**

**(a) 100 (b) 1 (c) 10 (d) 99**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is the correct answer.

We know that

The smallest three-digit number is 100 and the largest two-digit number is 99.

So the difference between them= 100 − 99 = 1

**4. The largest three digit number formed by the digits 8, 5, 9 is**

**(a) 859 (b) 985 (c) 958 (d) 589**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is the correct answer.

We know that the largest number is formed by writing the digits in descending order.

**5. The smallest three digit number having three distinct digits is**

**(a) 123 (b) 101 (c) 102 (d) 201**

**Solution:**

The option (c) is the correct answer.

We know that the smallest three digit numbers are 0, 1 and 2

By arranging them in ascending order we get 012 which is a two digit number.

Hence, 102 is the smallest three digit number.

**6. The largest three digit number having distinct digits is**

**(a) 987 (b) 789 (c) 999 (d) 900**

**Solution:**

The option (a) is the correct answer.

The largest three digit numbers are 7, 8 and 9. The largest number is obtained by arranging them in descending order.

**7. The difference between the largest three digit number and the largest three digit number with distinct digits is**

**(a) 10 (b) 0 (c) 12 (d) 13**

**Solution:**

The option (c) is the correct answer.

We know that Largest three digit number = 999

Largest three-digit number with distinct digits = 987

Difference between them = 999 − 987 = 12

**8. The product of the place values of two threes in 53432 is**

**(a) 9000 (b) 90000 (c) 10000 (d) 99000**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is the correct answer.

We know that 3 in the second place from right is at tens place.

So the place value of 3 at tens place = 30

We know that 3 in the fourth place from right is at thousands place.

So the place value of 3 at thousands place = 3,000

Product of the place values = 3,000 × 30 = 90,000

**9. The smallest counting number is**

**(a) 0 (b) 1 (c) 10 (d) None of these**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is the correct answer.

We know that the smallest digit is zero and the smallest counting number is 1.

**10. The total number of 4 digit numbers is**

**(a) 8999 (b) 9000 (c) 8000 (d) 9999**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is the correct answer.

We know that the smallest four digit number = 1,000

Largest four digit number = 9,999.

So the total number of four-digit numbers = [9,999 − 1,000 ] + 1 = 9,000

**11. The number of 3 digit numbers formed by using digits 3, 5, 9, taking each digit exactly once, is**

**(a) 3 (b) 4 (c) 5 (d) 6**

**Solution:**

The option (d) is the correct answer.

359, 395, 539, 593, 935 and 953 are the numbers.

**12. Total number of numbers which when rounded off to nearest ten give us 200 is**

**(a) 9 (b) 10 (c) 8 (d) 7**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is the correct answer.

195, 196, 197, 198, 199, 200, 201, 202, 203, 204 are the numbers that when rounded off to nearest ten give us.

**13. The smallest number which when rounded off to the nearest hundred as 600, is**

**(a) 550 (b) 595 (c) 604 (d) 599**

**Solution:**

The option (a) is the correct answer.

The number from 550 to 649 are rounded off nearest hundred as 600. Hence, the smallest number is 550.

**14. The greatest number which when rounded off to the nearest thousand 7000, is**

**(a) 6500 (b) 6549 (c) 7499 (d) 6499**

**Solution:**

The option (c) is the correct answer.

Numbers from 6500 to 7499 are rounded off to nearest thousand as 7000. Hence, the greatest number is 7499.

**15. The difference between the greatest and smallest numbers which when rounded off a number to the nearest tens as 540, is**

**(a) 10 (b) 9 (c) 8 (d) 10**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is the correct answer.

We know that the greatest number that when rounded off to the nearest tens will become 540 = 544

Least number that when rounded off to the nearest tens will become 540 = 535

So, the difference between them = 544 − 535 = 9

**16. The difference between the greatest and smallest numbers which when rounded off a number to the nearest hundred as 6700, is**

**(a) 100 (b) 99 (c) 98 (d) 101**

**Solution:**

The option (b) is the correct answer.

We know that the greatest number that when rounded off to the nearest hundred will become 6,7000 = 6749

Least number that when rounded off to the nearest hundred will become 6,700 = 6650

So, the difference between them = 6,749 − 6,650 = 99

**(a) 1000 (b) 990 (c) 999 (d) 900**

**Solution:**

The option (c) is the correct answer.

We know that the greatest number that when rounded off to the nearest thousand becomes 9,000 = 9499

Smallest number that when rounded off to the nearest thousand becomes 9,000 = 8500

So, the difference between them = 9,499 − 8,500 = 999
