1. Ans: c.

(Local value)-(Face value)= (7000-7)=6993.

1. Ans: d

x+(x+36)+y=100 => 2x+y=64

Therefore y must be even prime, which is 2.

Therefore 2x+2=64 => x=31

Third prime number= (x+36)= (31+36)= 67.

1. Ans: c

Unit digit in (3127)173  =  Unit digit in 7173. Now, 74 gives unit digit 1.

Therefore, 7173= (74)43 * 71. Thus, 7173 gives unit digit 7.

1. Ans: d

(51+52+53+………+100) = (1+2+3+…….+100)- (1+2+3+4+……+50)

= (100*101)/2  -  (50*51)/2

= (5050-1275)= 3775.

1. Ans: a

Let the number be 5b2. Clearly, it is divisible by 2.

Now, 5+b+2= (7+b) must be divisible by 3. So, b= 2.

1. Ans:b

Taking the sum of the digits, we have:

S1=9, S2=12, S3=18, S4= 9, S5=21, S6= 12, S7=18, S8=21, S9=15, S10=24.

Clearly S2, S5, S6, S8, S9, S10 are all divisible by 3 but not by 9. So, the number of required numbers= 6.

1. Ans: d

Since 4864 is divisible by 4, so 9P2 must be divisible by 3.

Therefore (11+P) must be divisible by 3.

Therefore least value of P is 1

1. Ans:a.

A number is divisible by 132, if it is divisible by each one of 11, 3 and 4.

Clearly, 968 is not divisible by 3. None of 462 and 2178 is divisible by 4.

Also, 5184 is not divisible by 11.

Each one of remaining 4 is divisible by each one of 11, 3 and 4 and therefore, by 132.

1. Ans: d

Sum of digits= 35 and so it is not divisible by 3.

(Sum of digits at odd places)- (Sum of digits at even places)= 19-16=3, not divisible by 11.

So, the given number is neither divided by 3 nor by 11.

1. Ans: c

Required number= 1*2*3*4=24

1. Ans: b

Let the three consecutive odd numbers be (2x+1), (2x+3) and (2x+5). Their sum = (6x=9)= 3 (2x+3), which is always divisible by 3.

1. Ans: c.

On dividing 6709 by 9, we get remainder= 4

Therefore, required number to be subtracted= 4

1. Ans: c

Required number is divisible by 72 as well as by 112, if it is divisible by their LCM, which is 1008.

Now, 1008 when divided by 72, gives quotient= 14.

Therefore, required number= 14.

1. Ans: c.

Required number= 999*366+103= (1000-1)*366+103= 366000-366+103= 365737.

1. Ans: d

Number= (31 * Q)+ 29. Given data is inadequate.

1. Ans: d

Let x=6q+3. Then, x2= (6q+3)2= 36q2+36q+9= 6(6q2+6q+1)+3.

So, when 2n is divided by 4, remainder =3.

1. Ans: a

Putting x=2, we get 22(22-1)= 12. So, x2(x2-1) is always divisible by 12.

1. Ans: a Z= 6*1 +4= 10.

Y= 5z+3= 53

X= 4y+2= 214.

1. Ans: c

Let n=3q+1 and let q= 2p+1. Then, n= 3(2p+1)+1= 6p+4

Therefore, the number when divided by 6, we get remainder= 4

1. Ans: d

Required number = (555+445)*2*110+30 = 220000+30= 220030.
