For Q.8

statement 1 directly gives m=15,n=2 (unique values )

The answer should be option (A). Isn’t it ?

No, because you forgot to take values as 1 * 30 = 30 and 5 * 6 !

SO, for a unique answer, we need the other statement as well.

Que 8

Answer should be D

there are 2 values (2,15) and (-6,-5)

no way…-5 is odd..but n should b even

i agree wid rakesh sahu

Answer should be C

Question is “What are the values” not “What is the value”, so answer could contain many values

Q9: Ans should be B

I don’t think so.. according to statement one n cannot be determined . It can be 2 or -3..

in question number 8. if we consider two negative values!?? like (-3,-10),(-5,-6)

In question 6, the answer should be c

since

(I) 2X + 2Y <= 40

X+Y= 20………..X and Y can be (20,0),(22,1),(30,1)…..

from here if we consider the two statement together then we get the unique value of x and y as (20,0)

note: ‘0’ can be considered as it falls within the set of non-negative integers.

In question 6, the answer should be c

since

(I) 2X + 2Y <= 40

X+Y= 20………..X and Y can be (20,0),(22,1),(30,1)…..

from here if we consider the two statement together then we get the unique value of x and y as (20,0)

note: ‘0’ can be considered as it falls within the set of non-negative integers.

you are exactly right. by combining both the statements only one unique solution can be obtained i.e. X = 20, Y= 0

In Question 7, by using stmt I, we can get the total number of mangoes stolen.

It’s a just a simple AP with a=4 and d=4. Total number of mangoes stolen = 220.

By stmt II alone , we can’t make out anything.

So, answer should be (A).

You assumed it’s an AP, it’s not given it is an AP.

This was designed to fool you, be careful.
