## Practise Questions with Solutions from the Mission SSC Tips, Techniques & Strategies to Crack CGL/CHSL/Multi Tasking/Jr. Engg. Exams

- (a)$85$
- (b)$34$
- (c)$17$
- (d)$2$

**Hint**

Subtract the remainder from the respective number and then calculate the difference between the previous result.

**Solution:**

Here divisible terms are;

$140-4=136$

$176-6=170$

$264-9=255$

Difference between these numbers

$170-136=34$

$255-170=85$

HCF of $34$ and $85=17$

Required answer $=17$.

- (a)$\sqrt[6]{25}<\sqrt[4]{20}<\sqrt[3]{9}$
- (b)$\sqrt[3]{9}<\sqrt[4]{20}<\sqrt[6]{25}$
- (c)$\sqrt[4]{20}<\sqrt[6]{25}<\sqrt[3]{9}$
- (d)$\sqrt[6]{25}<\sqrt[3]{9}<\sqrt[4]{20}$

**Hint**

Take LCM of power, then solve.

**Solution:**

According to the question:

Take LCM of $3,4,6=24$

$\sqrt[24]{{9}^{8}},\sqrt[24]{{20}^{6}},\sqrt[24]{{25}^{4}}$

$\sqrt[24]{{25}^{4}}<\sqrt[24]{{9}^{8}}\sqrt[24]{{20}^{6}};$

So,

$\sqrt[6]{25}<\sqrt[3]{9}<\sqrt[4]{20}$

Hence, $\sqrt[6]{25}<\sqrt[3]{9}<\sqrt[4]{20}$ is the correct answer.

- (a)$2$
- (b)$2.27$
- (c)$2.33$
- (d)$2.6$

**Hint**

Use the formula: ${a}^{3}+{b}^{3}=(a+b)({a}^{2}+{b}^{2}-ab)$

**Solution:**

Identity,

${a}^{3}+{b}^{3}=(a+b)({a}^{2}+{b}^{2}-ab)$;

Here; $a=2.3$

$b=0.3$;

So, $\frac{{a}^{3}+{b}^{3}}{{a}^{2}+{b}^{2}-ab}=a+b$

Put the value in the identity, we get;

$\frac{(2.3{)}^{3}+(0.3{)}^{3}}{(2.3{)}^{2}-2.3\times 0.3+(0.3{)}^{2}}$

$=\frac{(2.3+0.3)\left\{(2.3{)}^{2}+(0.3{)}^{2}-2.3\times 0.3\right\}}{(2.3{)}^{2}-2.3\times 0.3+(0.3{)}^{2}}$

$=2.3+0.3$

$=2.6$

- (a)$2$
- (b)$\sqrt{2}-1$
- (c)$\sqrt{2}+1$
- (d)$\sqrt{2}$

**Hint**

Do the rationalization of the denominator and then calculate.

**Solution:**

Given, $x=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}+1}$

By simplifying the fraction,

Multiply numerator and denominator by $\sqrt{2}-1;$

$x=\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}+1}\times \frac{\sqrt{2}{\displaystyle -}{\displaystyle 1}}{\sqrt{2}{\displaystyle -}{\displaystyle 1}}=\sqrt{2}-1$

Then, the value of $(x+1)$

$=\sqrt{2}-1+1=\sqrt{2}$

- (a)$2\sqrt{3}$
- (b)$3\sqrt{3}$
- (c)$\frac{\left(3\sqrt{3}+1\right)}{2}$
- (d)$2\sqrt{3}+1$

**Hint**

Use the formula:

$\left(A+B\right)\left(A-B\right)={A}^{2}-{B}^{2};$

**Solution:**

$x=2+\sqrt{3}$ (Given);

$\frac{1}{x}=\frac{1}{2+\sqrt{3}};$

To simplify the term, multiply $\frac{1}{x}$ with $2-\sqrt{3};$ both in numerator and denominator, we get;

$\frac{1}{x}=\frac{1}{2+\sqrt{3}}\times \frac{2-\sqrt{3}}{2-\sqrt{3}};$

$\frac{1}{x}=\frac{2-\sqrt{3}}{\left(2+\sqrt{3}\right)\left(2-\sqrt{3}\right)}=\frac{2-\sqrt{3}}{4-3}=2-\sqrt{3}$

Now, $x+\frac{1}{x}=\left(2+\sqrt{3}\right)+\left(2-\sqrt{3}\right);$

$x+\frac{1}{x}=4;$ ... eq. (1)

With the help of identity;

${\left(\sqrt{x}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}\right)}^{2}={\left(\sqrt{x}\right)}^{2}+{\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}\right)}^{2}+2\sqrt{x}\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}};$

${\left(\sqrt{x}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}\right)}^{2}=x+\frac{1}{x}+2;$

Put the value from equation (1);

${\left(\sqrt{x}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}\right)}^{2}=4+2=6$

$\left(\sqrt{x}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}\right)=\sqrt{6}$

We have to find

$\sqrt{2x}+\frac{2}{\sqrt{2x}}=\sqrt{2}\left(\sqrt{x}+\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}\right)$

$=\sqrt{2}\times \sqrt{6}=\sqrt{12}$

$=2\sqrt{3}$

- (a)EFI
- (b)EFG
- (c)DFI
- (d)EGI

**Hint**

Find the rule of each letter in the group with other letter of other group.

Such as - first letters of first two groups are immediate neighbours.

**Solution:**

The given series-

BCF, CDG, DEH,?

There are three letter group in the series. Fourth group is missing in the series.

From the above diagram,

- First letter of each group is the immediate right of first letter of previous group in the alphabetical series i.e C is the immediate right of B.
- Second letter of each group is the immediate right of second letter of previous group in the alphabetical series i.e. D is the immediate right of C.
- Third letter of each group is the immediate right of third letter of the previous group in the alphabetical series i.e. G is the immediate right of F.
- So, the fourth group will be EFI.

- (a)M
- (b)L
- (c)O
- (d)J

**Hint**

First and second letter are immediate neighbours.

**Solution:**

We have the series-

Q, P, 0, N,?

The series is of single letter. Fifth letter of the series is missing.

From the diagram,

- It is clear that consecutive two letters of the series are the immediate neighbours.
- The series is in reverse order.
- Second letter of the series is one letter less than the first letter.
- So, the fifth letter will be M.

- (a)QY
- (b)RX
- (c)SY
- (d)TZ

**Hint**

Find the rule of each letter in the group with other letter of other group.

Such as -both letters of a group five letters apart from each other.

**Solution:**

We have the series-

AG, LR, WC, HN,?

The series is of two letter group. Fifth group is missing in the series.

From the above diagram,

Second letter of the group is sixth to the right of first letter of the group in the alphabetical series i.e letter G is sixth to the letter A in the first group.

First letter of the second group is fifth to the right of second letter of the first group in the alphabetical series i.e. letter L is fifth to the right of letter G.

So, fifth group will be SY where Y is sixth to the right of S and S is the fifth to the right of previous group's N.

- (a)HO
- (b)HN
- (c)NH
- (d)OH

**Hint**

First letters of the first two groups are one letter apart from each other.

**Solution:**

We have the series-

BT, DR, FP, ?

The series is of two letter group. Fourth group is missing in the series.

From the above diagram,

- First letter of second group is second to the right of first letter of first group in the alphabetical series i.e. D is second to the right of B.
- Second letter of all groups are in reverse order.
- Second letter of first group is second to the right of second letter of second group in the alphabetical series i.e. T is second to the right of R.
- So, fourth group will be HN in which H is second to the right of F.

- (a)Quintuple
- (b)Nonuple
- (c)Sextuple
- (d)Octuple

**Hint**

Find the pattern followed by words in the series.

Such as - Single means one time and Double means two times

**Solution:**

We have the series-

Double, Triple, Quadruple, ?

The series is of 'number of times'.

As,

- Double means ' two times'.
- Triple means ' three times'.
- Quadrupole means 'four times'.
- So, the next word will be Quintuple which means 'five times'.
Hence, the next term is quintuple as it means five times.
