**6. If x+4/x-3 < 2, then find the interval in which x lies.****Answer:** We have, x+4/x- 3 < 2 or x+4/x-3 -2<0

or -x+10/x-3 < 0 or x-10/x-3 > 0

⇒ {x – 10 > 0 and x – 3 > 0} or {x – 10 < 0 and x – 3 < 0}

⇒ {x > 10 and x > 3} or {x < 10 and x < 3}

⇒ x ∈ (–∞, 3) ∪ (10, ∞)

**7. Find the equation of circle whose centre is (–1, 2) and radius is 4.****Answer:** Equation of circle with centre (–1, 2) and radius 4

is [x – (–1)]2 + (y – 2)2 = (4)2

⇒ (x + 1)2 + (y – 2)2 = 16

⇒ x2 + 1 + 2x + y2 + 4 – 4y = 16

⇒ x2 + y2 + 2x – 4y – 11 = 0

**8. If sinθ + cosecqθ= 2, then find the value of sin2θ + cosec2θ.****Answer:** Given, sinq + cosecq = 2

Squaring on both sides, we get

sin2q + cosec2q + 2sinq · cosecq = 4

⇒ sin2q + cosec2q = 4 – 2 = 2

**OR**

**Evaluate : cos 4q – cos 6q****Answer:** Consider, cos 4q – cos 6q

= 2sin(4θ + 6θ/2) sin (6θ – 4θ/2) = 2 sin 5θ sin θ

**9. Evaluate : n!/r!(n – r)! , when n = 6, r = 2.****Answer: **Since n = 6, r = 2

We have 6!/2!(6! – 2)! = 6!/2! x 4! = 6×5/2 = 15

**10. Find the derivative of a/x4 – b/x2 +cosx .****Answer:** Let f(x) = a/x4 – b/x2 + cos x

⇒ f(x) = ax–4 – bx–2 + cos x … (i)

Differentiating (i) with respect to x, we get

d/dx[f(x)]= a (-4) x – 5− b(−2)x−3 + (−sinx)

= -4a/x5 + 2b/x3 – sin x

**Section – IV**

**11. Evaluate : sin A · tan (A/2) + cos .****Answer:** We have, sin A · tan (A/2) + 2 cos A

= sin A. sin A/2/+ 2cos A = 2sin A/2 cos A/2. sinA/2/cosA/2 + 2cos A

= 2 sin2 A/2 + 2cos A = 1 – cos A + 2 cos A = 1 + cos A

= 2 cos2 A/2 = 2/sec A/2 = 2/1+tan2 A/2

**12. The probabilities that a student will receive an A, B, C and D grade are 0.30, 0.38, 0.22 and 0.10 respectively.****Find the probability that the student will receive**

(i) at most C grade

(ii) B or C grade.**Answer:** (i) P(at most C grade)

= P(C grade) + P(D grade) = 0.22 + 0.10 = 0.32

(ii) P(B or C grade)

= P(B grade) + P(C grade) = 0.38 + 0.22 = 0.60

**OR**

**A young man visits a hospital for medical check-up. The probability that he has lungs problem is 0.45, heart problem is 0.29 and either lungs or heart problem is 0.47. What is the probability that he has both types of problems: lungs as well as heart?****Answer: **Let L represents the lungs problem and H represents

the heart problem.

Given, P(L) = 0.45, P(H) = 0.29

P(L ∪ H) = 0.47

Q P (L ∪ H) = P(L) + P(H) – P(L ∩ H)

⇒ 0.47 = 0.45 + 0.29 – P(L ∩ H)

⇒ P(L ∩ H) = 0.45 + 0.29 – 0.47

⇒ P(L ∩ H) = 0.74 – 0.47 = 0.27

∴ The probability that he has both types of problems is 0.27.

**13. If y = cos x/1+sinx , then find dy/dx.****Answer:** We have, y = cos x/1+sinx

**Section – V**

**15. Two students Kartik and Kanika appeared in an examination. The probability that Kartik will qualify the examination is 0.06 and that Kanika will qualify the examination is 0.20. The probability that both will qualify the examination is 0.02. Find the probability that:**

(i) both Kartik and Kanika will not qualify the examination.

(ii) at least one of them will not qualify the examination.

(iii) only one of them will qualify the examination.**Answer:** Let E be the event that Kartik will qualify the

examination and F be the event that Kanika will qualify

the examination.

P(E) = 0.06, P(F) = 0.20 and P(E ∩ F) = 0.02

(i) Probability that both will not qualify the

examination

= P(E ∪F) = P(E∪F) = 1 – P(E ∪ F)

= 1 – [P(E) + P(F) – P(E ∩ F)]

= 1 – (0.06 + 0.20 – 0.02) = 1 – 0.24 = 0.72

(ii) Probability that atleast one of them will not qualify

the examination

= P(E′ ∪ F′) = P(E ∩ F)′ = 1 – 0.02 = 0.98

(iii) P (only E) = P(E) – P(E ∩ F)

= 0.06 – 0.02 = 0.04

P (only F) = P(F) – P(E ∩ F)

= 0.20 – 0.02 = 0.18

∴ Required probability = P (only E) + P(only F)

= 0.04 + 0.18 = 0.22

**16. If | x +3| + x/x+2 > 1 , then find the interval in which x lies.****Answer:**

**OR**

**Show that the following system of inequalities x/2x+1 ≥ 1/4, 6x/4x-1 < 1/2 have no solution.****Answer: **

Note that the common solution of (1) and (2) is null set.

Hence, the given system of inequalities has no solution.

**17. Three consecutive vertices of a parallelogram ABCD are A(6, –2, 4), B(3, 5, –4) and C(–2, 2, 4). Find the coordinates of the fourth vertex.****Answer:** Let the coordinates of the fourth vertex be D(x, y, z)

**Section – VI**

**18. If the letters of the word ‘PATTERN’ are written in all possible orders and are arranged in dictionary order.****What is the rank of the word ‘PATTERN’?****Answer: **Total letters in the word ‘PATTERN’ is 7.

∴ Total no. of words starting with ‘A’ = 6!/2!

Total no. of words starting with E = 6!/2!

Total no. of words starting with N = 6!/2!

Total no. of words starting with PAE = 4!/2!

Total no. of words starting with PAN = 4!/2!

Total no. of words starting with PAR = 4!/2!

Total no. of words starting with PATE = 3!

Total no. of words starting with PATN = 3!

Total no. of words starting with PATR = 3!

Total no. of words starting with PATTENR = 1

∴ Total no. of words before ‘PATTERN’

= 3 × 6!/2! + 3 × 4!/2! + 3 × 3! + 1 = 1135

Hence, rank of word ‘PATTERN’ = 1135 + 1 = 1136

**OR**

**Find the number of arrangements of the letters of the word INDEPENDENCE when all the vowels always occur together.****Answer:** There are 5 vowels in the given word, which are 4’s E and 1 I. Since, they have to always occur together, we treat them as a single object EEEEI for the time being.

This single object together with 7 remaining objects will account for 8 objects. These 8 objects, in which there are 3N’s and 2 D’s, can be rearranged in 8!3!2! ways.

Corresponding to each of these arrangements, the 5 vowels E, E, E, E and I can be rearranged in 5!/4! ways.

Therefore, by multiplication principle, the required number of arrangements = 8! /3! x 2! x 5! /4! = 16800

**19. If cosθ = 4/5 and cos Φ = 12/13 , where q and f both lie in the fourth quadrant, then find the value of tan (q + Φ).****Answer: **Given, cosθ = 4/5 and cos Φ = 12/13

Since q lies in the fourth quadrant, we have cos θ > 0, sin q < 0 and tan θ < 0

Again, since f lies in the fourth quadrant, we have cos Φ > 0, sin f < 0 and tan Φ < 0

**OR**
