Let x, y and z are 2n, n2 – 1 & n2 +1. Let x = 2n, y = n2 – 1 and z = n2 +1. Option (A) : 2 does not divide x . Clearly 2 divides x. So option (A) is not true. Ex : 8, 15 and 17 are pythogorean triplet. 2 divides 8. Option (B) : 2 does not divide z(x + y) (n2 + 1)(2n + n2 – 1) which is an odd number so, 2 does not divides z(x + y). So, option (B) is true. Option (C) : 4 divides x + y + z Ex : 5, 12, 13 are the pythogorean triplet. Clearly 5 + 12 + 13 = 30, and 4 does not divides 30. So, option (C) is not true. Option (D) : 8 divides x + y + z Ex : 8, 15, 17 are the pythogorean triplet. Clearly 8 + 15 + 17 = 40, and 8 divides 40. So, option (B) is true. CLASS-XII_STREAM-SB+2_PAGE # 138

The ionization energy or enthalpy of Na is less than that of Li but the hydration enthalpy of Li is higher than that of Na. Difference between ionization enthalpy of both is less than difference between their hydration enthalpy so overall oxidation potential of Li is greater than Na. Therefore Li metal is a better reducing agent than Na metal.

We can find the answer through option as the sum of weight of packet taken from trucks is 1022870 gm and its unit digit is 0. The truck that have heavier bags have unit digit 0. So, the truck have lighter bags in which the sum of weight of bags must have unit digit 0. So, according to option D. i.e. truck no. 2, 8 Track 2 have 21 bags and total weight = 21 × 999 gm = .......8 gm Truck have 27 bags and total weight = 27 × 999 = 128 × 999 gm = ......2 gm So, the unit digit of the weight contain by truck 2, 8 together is 0. 1

As we want the distance between two point is at least r. Now when the point A, B are at distance r.Then the angle made arc BA is 60º. Now as chord AB come closer to centre the length of chord AB is increased that is it is greater than r and the angle is also increases i.e. from 60º to 180º and now when chord AB move way from centre then the length of chord AB decreases , when chord AB reach CD the length of AB equal to r and the angle chang from 180º to 60º CLASS-XII_STREAM-SB+2_PAGE # 189

1, x A B If f (x , A) = 0, x A B Option A is rejected because x (AB) ,then f(x,A) + f(x,B) = 1+ 1 = 2 which can’t be attained by f.

Option B is rejected baecuse if x A B , then f(x,A) + f(x,B) –1 = 0 + 0 –1 = –1 which can’t be attained by f . Also option D is rejected because if x A , then f(x,A) + |f(x,A) – f(x,B)| = 1 + |1 – 0| = 2 Which is also unattainble

The ionization energy or enthalpy of Na is less than that of Li but the hydration enthalpy of Li is higher than that of Na. Difference between ionization enthalpy of both is less than difference between their hydration enthalpy so overall oxidation potential of Li is greater than Na. Therefore Li metal is a better reducing agent than Na metal.

We can find the answer through option as the sum of weight of packet taken from trucks is 1022870 gm and its unit digit is 0. The truck that have heavier bags have unit digit 0. So, the truck have lighter bags in which the sum of weight of bags must have unit digit 0. So, according to option D. i.e. truck no. 2, 8 Track 2 have 21 bags and total weight = 21 × 999 gm = .......8 gm Truck have 27 bags and total weight = 27 × 999 = 128 × 999 gm = ......2 gm So, the unit digit of the weight contain by truck 2, 8 together is 0. 1

As we want the distance between two point is at least r. Now when the point A, B are at distance r.Then the angle made arc BA is 60º. Now as chord AB come closer to centre the length of chord AB is increased that is it is greater than r and the angle is also increases i.e. from 60º to 180º and now when chord AB move way from centre then the length of chord AB decreases , when chord AB reach CD the length of AB equal to r and the angle chang from 180º to 60º CLASS-XII_STREAM-SB+2_PAGE # 189

So, the angle required for desired conditions = 2(180 – 60) = 240 Total angle for all around the circle = 360º So, required propability = 89.
