Detailed Explanations
1. (a)
‘Disinterested’ means ‘free from bias, free from personal/selfish motives’.
‘Uninterested’ means ‘lacking interest’.

2. (b)
Between 1 to 300:
There are 27 multiples of 11.
There are 23 multiples of 13.
There are 2 multiples of 143 (of both 11 and 13).
So, there are 27 – 2 = 25 numbers divisible by 11 only.
And, there are 23 – 2 = 21 numbers divisible by 13 only.
In all, there are 25 + 21 = 46 numbers divisible by 11 or 13 but not by both.

Area of ∆EDC = × 10 × 7 = 35 cm 2

6. (b)
First of all |x – 3|2 = (x – 3)2, so we have: (x – 3)2 + |x – 3| = 20.
when x < 3, x – 3 is negative, thus |x – 3| = –(x – 3). In this case we will have (x – 3)2 – (x – 3)
= 20
⇒ x = –1 or x = 8.
Discard x = 8 because it’s not in the range we consider (< 3).
when x >= 3, x – 3 is non-negative, thus |x – 3| = x – 3. In this case we will have
(x – 3)2 + (x – 3) = 20
⇒ x = –2 or x = 7.
Discard x = –2 because it’s not in the range we consider (> = 3).
Thus there the two solutions: x = –1 and x = 7
⇒ The sum = 6.

Number of trials = = = 15
150 − 30 120
Let us take 14 trials of sliding up
For every trial of these 14 trials, its effective upward movement is (150 – 30) = 120 cm
 1
The time taken for this =  14 × 1 + 14 ×  = 21 minutes
2
Total distance = (14 × 120) = 1680 cm
Remaining = 1800 – 1680 = 120 cm

( 60 × 120 ) = 48 seconds
Remaining 120 cm it can reach in
150
Total time = 21 minutes 48 seconds

8. (b)
Total ways of arranging 5 letters in any possible order = 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 5! = 120
In half of the cases A will be to the left of B and in other half A will be to the right of B
Hence, desired outcome

9. (b)
This is a situation in which there is the same relationship, respect, between any possible pair of
people in the group. This is a saturation that calls for the structure “each other” or “one another”.
Choice (a) doesn’t use this, and what is used is very wordy and awkward, so it is incorrect.
These structures, “each other” and “one another”, demand a plural subject. Choices (c) and (d)
make the mistake of using a singular subject, so these are incorrect.
Option (b) is the right answer.

10. (d)
Factorial of the positive integers greater than 5 is divisible by 18.
So, we have to find out the remainder when 1!+2!+3!+4!+5!(= 153)is divided by 18. (All other
terms yield zero remainder)
So, Remainder = 9.

Let Percentage Profit/Loss = x and Cost Price = C
Now, C + xC = 1920
C – xC = 1280
Solving for C ⇒ 2C = 3200 ⇒ C = 1600
Sale Price with 25% profit ⇒ 1.25 × 1600 = 2000.

= 99 hours and approx 58 minutes
So, correct time will be
2 PM, 14th August + (99 hours and 58 minutes) = 12:58 PM on 18th August

13. (c)
The length of the hypotenuse of the triangle is the length of one of the sides multiplied by 2,
i.e. 9 2 feet. Therefore the area of the square is 9 2 × 9 2 = 81 × 2 = 162 sq. feet.
The area of the triangle must be exactly one quarter of the area of the square. If you don’t see
that directly, imagine the triangle being flipped down into the square. Therefore, the total

 162 
area is  162 +  sq. feet = 202.5 sq feet.

‘Armchair traveller’ = Someone who reads books or watches TV programmes about other
places and countries, but doesn’t actually travel anywhere. “Born with a silver spoon” = born
into a very rich family. “A big fish in a small pond” = an important or highly-ranked person in
a small group or organisation. Since, the sentence does not contain any reference about
travelling, (1) cannot be true here.

## 20. 1.253 (1.2 to 1.3)

Let the number of matches in which he was in the team of starting 11 be x and the matches in
which he came on as a substitute be y.
Thus, x + y = 388 ...(i)
Number of goals scored in matches in which he was in the team of starting 11 = Average ×
number of matches = 1.5x
Number of goals scored in matches in which he came on as a substitute = 0.5y
Thus, 1.5x = 0.5y + 390 ...(ii)
Solving both equations for x and y, we have x = 292 and y = 96
So, the total number of goals scored by him = 1.5 × 292 + 0.5 × 96 = 486 goals
Therefore, average number of goals scored per match = 486 ÷ 388 = 1.253

21. (c)
At present,
Let the members be M, N, O and P
Where age of P > O > N > M
Since P died after 5 years at the age of 88. So, present age of P = 88 – 5 = 83
Youngest member = M = 14 years
N + O + P = 54 × 3
N + O = 162 – 83 = 79 ...(i) (O > N)
10 years after the death of P means 15 years hence from present, let Q be born.
20 years from present means at that time Q = 5 years and is youngest.
Eldest member at that time = O (age = O + 20)

(O + 20) – 5 = 57
O = 57 – 15 = 42 years
So, N = 79 – 42 = 37 years
After 5 years, members alive are = M, N, O
M = 14 + 5 = 19 years
N = 37 + 5 = 42 years
O = 42 + 5 = 47 years
Required ages of N and O are 42 and 47.

Diameter = 10 units

## Next, Diagonal of a cube = 102 + 10 2 + 102 = 10 3.

Now, half of (Diagonal minus Diameter) is the gap between the vertex of cube and surface

 K   K 
Based on S1, we can write C ×  1 +  − C × 1 −  = 2560
 100   100 

2CK
i.e. = 2560 or Ck = 1280 which does not give the value of k or K. Hence Statement 1 is NOT
100
sufficient.
Based on S2, C × 0.075 = K which gives C = 40K/3 = 4000k/3 which will NOT give the value of
k or K.
When we combine the information given in both the statements, we will be able to find C as
well as k or K. Hence option (c) is the correct option.

The rule to decide an optimum threshold value using MAP criteria is as follows:
H0
>
f R ( r | 0)P(0) < f R (r | 1)P(1)
H1

It means,
If fR(r | 0)P (0) > fR(r | 1)P (1), decision must made in favour of ‘0’.
If fR(r | 0)P (0) < fR(r | 1)P (1), decision must made in favour of ‘1’.
Optimum threshold can be decided by plotting fR(r | 0)P (0) and fR(r | 1)P (1) on same axis as
follows:

Since the configuration represents an invertor MOSFET with an active load, the output will be
high for low values of input signal and low for high values of input signal.
Now, since the load transistor T1 has shorted drain and gate,
V DS > VGS – VT
0 > –VT
Which is always true hence the transistor T1 will always work in saturation region.
When Vin = 0 V, I D = 0.
Hence, I D = Kn (VGS1 – VT )
0 = (VGS1 – VT )
VG1 – VS1 – VT = 0
For transistor T1, VS1 = V0 and VGS1 = VDD = 5 V
Thus, VG1 – V0 – VT = 0
5 – V0 – 1 = 0
–V0 = –4 V
V0 = 4 V
Hence maximum value of output = 4 V.

The minimum value of load resistance can be calculated when maximum current flows through
Thus, IL (max) = Iin – IZ (min)
Now, IZ (min) = 0 ∵ knee current nearly equal to

∴ IL (max) = I i n

∴ × 103 = × 103 = 250 Ω

Now, for maximum value of load resistance, there should be minimum value of current through
∴ IL (min) = Iin – IZ (max)
IL (min) = (40 – 20) × 10–3 = 20 mA

Detailed Explanations
101. (c)
Since the output is reproduced in the negative cycle, i.e., the clamper used is to add a negative
D.C. level to the circuit, hence it is a negative clamper. Thus diode must be S.C. for a positive
voltage applied at the input.
Now, after deciding the polarity of the diode we have to make sure that the diode is forward
biased if the input is lower than 25 V.
Thus, the circuit will look like the one shown in the figure below.

105. (d)
∵ The drain and gate of transistor T1 is shorted, thus the transistor will always remain in
saturation region, and VGS = VDS – Vo = 5 – 0.1 = 4.9 V.
For transistor M2
VGS = 5 V
VDS = 0.1 V
VT = 0.8 V
Thus, VDS < VGS – VT and VGS < VT
Hence, the transistor will be working in linear region.
The current flowing through the two transistors must be equal because they are connected in
series to each other. Thus, current flowing through transistor M1 is equal to
µ n C ox W1
ID 1 = (VGS 1 − VT )2

From the given polar plot, it can be assumed that the system has 2 poles and no zeros with one
pole at origin. By adding one more pole the plot will shift by –90°.

Let, G(s) H(s) =
s( s + sT1 )
For ω = 0, G(jω) H( jω) = ∞ ∠–90°
For ω = ∞, G(jω) H( jω) = 0 ∠–180°
Now after adding one simple pole,

s 2 8
s2 2 8

s 0
All the elements in the s1 row are zeros. That means, there are symmetrically located roots of
the characteristics equation with respect to the origin of the s-plane.
