**e) x = y or relationship between x and y cannot be established**

**6. I. 6x**

^{2}+ 13x + 5 = 0 II. 9y^{2}+ 22y + 8 = 0**7. I. 4x + 2y = 51 II. 15y + 13x = 221**

**8. I. (x + y)**

^{2}= 784 II. 92551 = 92567 – y**9. I. x**

^{2}+ 91 = 20x II. 10y^{2}– 29y + 21 = 0**Directions (10 – 14): Study the following pie-chart carefully and answer the questions that follow taking the data of company XYZ:**

**Answers:**

**1)b 2)d 3)a 4)d 5)e 6)e 7)d 8)c 9)d 10)c 11)a 12)e 13)c 14)c 15)c**

**Solutions:**

1. B) 6R, 5G,
8B

Non green Balls
= 6 + 8 = 14

Therefore
required probability = 6C4/19C4 + [5C2 × 14C2]/19C4 = 925/3876

2. D) SI =
35500 x 15/100 x 2 = Rs.10650

A = 35500 +
10650 = Rs.46150

CI for 3 years
= 46150[(1 + 20/100)

^{3}– 1] = Rs.33597.20
Therefore total
interest = 10650 + 33597.20 = Rs.44247.20

3. A) 12 x 36
men can do a work in one day = 18 x 60 women can do a work in one day

=> 12 x 36 M
= 18 x 60 W => 2M = 5W => 8M = 20W

4. D)

5. E) Let the
length of train = x

=> x/20 = (x
+ 3x)/20 – 24 => x = 160m

6. E) On
solving the given equations we get x = -1/2, -5/3 and y = -2 or -4/9

Therefore
relationship cannot be established

7. D) on
solving the given equations x = 9.5 and y = 6.5 => x > y

8. C) From
equation (II) y = 16

From equation
(I) x + y = ±28 from this x = 12 or x = -44

x < y

9. D) On
solving the equations we get x = 7, 13 and y = 3/2, 7/5

x > y

10. C) Required difference = (25-17)/100
* 5600 = 448

11. A) Required ratio = A+B : C+D =
(10+25)/100 *5600 : (33+17)/100 *5600 = 7 : 10

12. E) Required percentage = 15/(25+33)
* 100 = 26%

13. C) Required percentage = (33-10)/33
* 100 = 70%

14. C) Number of employees in city
D = (5/100)*(10/100)*5600 = 28

So (17/100)*5600 + 28 = 980
