342. There is a 7-digit telephone number with all different digits. If the digit at extreme right and extreme left are 5 and 6 respectively, find how many such telephone numbers are possible?

**Answer:**** Option C **

**Explanation:**

If the digit at extreme right and extreme left are 5 and 6 respectively.

So, the 7 digit number is : 6 _ _ _ _ _ 5

Since repetition of digits are not allowed the second digit can be chosen from (0,1,2,3,4,7,8,9) 8 of the remaining digits.

5 spaces are left, hence 8P5=6720

343. If a+b+c =0 ,

Then find the value of the expression (a^2+b^2+c^2)/(a^2-bc)= ?

**Answer:**** Option B **

**Explanation:**

Let's assume a=1, b=-1 & c = 0, these value will satisfy the a+b+c=0

so (a^2+b^2+c^2)/(a^2-bc) = (1+1+0)/(1-(-1)*0) = 2

345. Find the ratio of the area of square to area of triangle.

**Answer:**** Option B **

**Explanation:**

Let the side of the square = 2 units.

Now the area of the square = 2*2 = 4.

Area of the triangle = 1/2*2*2=2

Ratio = 4 : 2 = 2 : 1.

346. The diagonal of a square is twice the side of equilateral triangle. Then the ratio of Area of the Triangle to the Area of Square is?

**Answer:**** Option A **

**Explanation:**

Diagonal of a square = 2a

Area of the square = 1/2*(diagonal)^2 = 2a^2

Side of the equi triangle is a

Area of equilateral triangle = (_/3/4)a^2

so Ratio of Area of Triangle to Square = (_/3/4)a^2 : 2a^2 = _/3:8

347. The sum of the four consecutive two digit odd numbers, when divided by 10, becomes a perfect square. Which of the following can be one of these four numbers?

**Answer:**** Option C **

**Explanation:**

Let the numbers are 2a +1, 2a + 3, 2a + 5, 2a + 7 and their sum = 8a + 16

Given that if this sum is divided by 10, results in a perfect square.

So, (8a+16)/10 = k^2.

=> a = (10k^2?16) /8

=> a=[ 5(k^2)/4 ]?2

As k^2 is a perfect square and has to be divided by 4, only even numbers should be considered for k.

For k = 2, we get, a = 3, but 2a + 1 is not a two digit number.

For k = 4, a = 18 for which the given condition is satisfying.

So the numbers are 37, 39, 41, 43.

For k = 6, a = 43. The number are 87, 89, 91, 93.

349. The five tyres of a car (four road tyres and one spare) were used equally in a journey of 40,000 kms. The number of kms of use of each tyre was

**Answer:**** Option C **

**Explanation:**

Total kilometers travelled by 4 tyre = 40000 * 4 = 1,60,000.

This has to be share by 5 tyres.

So each tyre capacity = 1,60,000 / 5 = 32, 000.

You have a doubt, after we travel 32,000 km, we are left with 4 worn tyes and one new tyre.

But If the tyres are rotated properly after each 8000 km,

All the tyres are equally used.
