Answer any 6 from questions 1 to 7. Each question carries 3 score. (1 × 6 = 6)

Question 1.
Let A = {x: x is a prime number less than 11} and B = {x: x is an integer such that 2 ≤ x ≤ 8}.
(i) Write C = A ∩ B.
(ii) Find the number of subsets of C which has 3 elements.
(iiii) What is the probability of getting a subset of 3 elements from the power set of C.
(i) A = {2, 3, 5, 7}; B = {2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8}
C = {2, 3, 5, 7} ∩ {2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8} = {2, 3, 5, 7}
(ii) Number of subsets of C which has 3 elements
4C3 = 4
(iii) Probability of getting a subset of 3 elements from the power set of C

Question 2.
(i) Find(a + b)4 -(a – b)4.
(ii) Hence evaluate
(3‾√ + 2‾√)4 – (3‾√ – 2‾√)4.

Question 3.
Find the square root of the complex number 3 + 4i.
Let x + iy = 3+4𝑖‾‾‾‾‾‾√
Then (x + iy)2 = 3 + 4i
⇒ x2 – y2 + 2xyi = 3 + 4i
Equating real and imaginary parts, we have
x2 – y2 = 3 ……… (1)
2xy = 4
We know the identity
(x2 + y2)2 = (x2 – y2)2 + (2xy)2
= 9 + 16 = 5
Thus, x2 +y2 = 5 …….. (2)
From (1) and (2), x2 = 4 and y2 = 1 or x = ±2 and y = ±1
Since the product xy is positive,
we have x = 2, y = 1 or, x = – 2, y = -1
Thus, the square roots of 3 + 4i are
2 + i and -2 – i.

Question 4.
The sum of first three terms of a Geometric Progression is 1312 and their product is -1. Find the common ratio and the terms.
Let 𝑎𝑟, a, ar be the numbers.

Question 5.
Find the solution of the equation
sinx + sin3x + sin5x = 0
sinx + sin3x + sin5x = 0
2 sin3x cos2x + sin3x = 0
⇒ sin3x (2 cos2x + 1) = 0
⇒ sin 3x = 0; 2 cos 2x + 1 = 0
⇒ 3x = nπ, n ∈ Z; 2 cos2x = -1

Question 6.
Consider the graph of the function f(x)

(i) Identify the function f (x)
(a) f(x) = sinx   (b) f(x) = cos x
(c) f(x) = tanx   (d) f(x) = cos ecx
(ii) Using the function f(x) find

(i) (a) f(x) = sinx

Question 7.
(i) Find the general term in the expansion of (𝑥2+1𝑥)5.
(ii) If the expansion of (𝑥2+1𝑥)𝑛 has a term independent of x, then which of the following can be the value of n?
(a) 18   (b) 16   (c) 22   (d) 13

(ii) For getting a term independent of x in the expression of (𝑥2+1𝑥)𝑛, power of x
2n – 3r = 0 ⇒ n = 3𝑟2
Which means n should be a multiple 3 and divisible by 2. Hence (a) 18.

Answer any 8 from questions 8 to 17. Each question carries 4 scores. (8 × 4 = 32)

Question 8.
In a school, a survey among 400students, 100 were listed as taking apple juice, 150 as taking orange juice and 75 were listed as taking both apple juice as well as orange juice.
(i) How many students take apple juice or orange juice?
(ii) How many take apple juice alone but not orange juice?
(iii) How many students were taking neither apple juice nor orange juice?
Let A: Apple juice, O: Orange juice.
(i) n(A ∪ O) = n(A) + n(O) – n(A ∩ O)
= 100 + 150 – 75 = 175
(ii) n(A ∩ O’) = n(A) – n(A ∩ O)
= 100 – 75 = 25
(iii) n(A’ ∩ O’) = 400 – n(A ∪ O)
= 400 – 175 = 225

Question 9.
The figure shows the graph of the function f(x).

(i) Write the domain and range of f(x).
(ii) Find f(0)and f(-0.01).
(iii) Check the existence of lim𝑥0 f(x).
(i) Domain = R
Range = (-∞, 0) ∪ {1}
(ii) f(0) = 1, f(-0.01) = -0.01
(iii) lim𝑥0 f(x) = 0, lim𝑥0+ f(x) = 1
lim𝑥0 f(x) = lim𝑥0+ f(x)
Therefore limit does not exists.
OR
There is a break in the graph of f(x) at x = 0.
So limit does not exist at x = 0.

Question 10.
Consider the set A = {-1, 1}
(i) Write all elements is A × A.
(ii) How many relations are there from A to A?
(iii) Write all functions from A to A which has Range = {-1, 1}.
(i) A × A = {(-1, -1), (-1, 1), (1, -1), (1, 1)}
(ii) Number of relations = 2n(A × A) = 24 =16
(iii) There are two functions
f1 ={(-1, -1), (1, 1)}
f2 = {(-1, 1), (1, -1)}

Question 11.
Using principle of mathematical induction prove that n(n +1)(n + 5) is a multiple of 3 for all n ∈ N.
p(1) : 1(1 + 1)(1 + 5) = 12 divisible by 3, hence true. Assuming that true for p(k)
p(k) : k(k + 1 )(k + 5) is divisible by 3.
k(k + 1)(k + 5) = 3M
p(k + 1) : (k + 1)(k + 2)(k + 6)
= (k + 1)(k2 + 8k + 12)
= (k + 1)(k2 + 5k + 3k + 12)
= (k + 1) [k(k + 5) + 3(k + 6)]
= [k(k + 1)(k + 5) + 3(k +1)(k + 6)]
= [3M + 3(k + 1)(k + 6)]
= 3[M + (k + 1)(k + 6)]
Hence divisible by 3. Therefore by using the principle of mathematical induction true for all n ∈ N.

Question 12.
If z is a complex number with |z| = 2 and arg(z) = 4𝜋3, then
(i) express z in a + ib form.
(ii) Find 𝑧¯
(iii) Verify that (𝑧¯)2 = 2z
(i) z = r(cosθ + i sinθ)

Question 13.
Seven cards are drawn from a pack of well shuffled 52 playing cards.
(i) How many ways this can be done?
(ii) What is the probability that the selection contain all kings?
(iii) What is the probability that selection does not contain a king card?

Question 14.
(i) Write the contrapositive of the given statement.
“If a number is divisible by 9, then it is divisible by 3.”
(ii) Verify by the method of contradiction:
“p : 7‾√ is irrational.”
(i) If a number is not divisible by 3, it is not divisible by 9.
(ii) Assume that 7‾√ is rational. Then 7‾√ can be written in the form 7‾√ = 𝑝𝑞, where p and q are integers without common factors.
Squaring; 7 = 𝑝2𝑞2 ⇒ 7q2 = p2
⇒ 7 divides p2 ⇒ 7 divides p
Therefore, p = 7k for some integer k.
=> p2 = 49k2 ⇒ 7q2 = 49k2 ⇒ q2 = 7k2
⇒ 7 divides q2 ⇒ 7 divides q
Hence p and q have common factor 7, which contradicts our assumption. Therefore, 7‾√ is irrational.

Question 15.
Calculate the mean deviation about median for the following data:

Median class is the class in which the (502=25)𝑡
observation lies. Therefore median class is 20 – 30.

Question 16.
Consider the word ASSASSINATION
(i) How many different ways can the letters of the word are arranged
(ii) How many of these words have all vowels together?
(i) In the word ASSASSINATION there are 13 letters, of which A appears 3 times, S appears 4 times, N appears 2 times, I appears 2 times and the rest all are different.
Therefore the total number of ways is

Question 17.
Let A (0, 7, 10), B(-1, 6, 6,) and C (-4, 9, 6) are the vertices of a triangle.
(i) Show that is a right triangle.
(ii) Find the coordinate of the centre of the circle passing through the point A, B, C.
(i) AB2 = (-1 – 0)2 + (6 – 7)2 + (6 – 10)2
= 1 + 1 + 16 = 18
BC2 = (-4 – (-1))2 + (9 – 6)2 + (6 – 6)2
= 9 + 9 + 0 = 18
AC2 =(-4 – 0)2 + (9 – 7)2 + (6 – 10)2
= 16 + 4 + 16 = 36
AB2 + BC2 = AC2
Therefore triangle ABC is right triangle.

(ii) Since the triangle is a right triangle, the circumcentre will lie on the midpoint of the side AC.

Let the equation of the circle be (x – h)2 + (y – k)2 = r2
Since the circle pass through the points (4, 1) and (6, 5)
(4 – h)2 + (1 – h)2 = r2 ……….(1)
(6 – h)2 + (5 – k)2 = r2 ……(2)
4x + y = 16 ……..(3)
Solving the three equations we get h = 3 and k = 4.
(4 – 3)2 + (1 – 4)2 = r2 ⇒ r2 = 10
Hence the equation of the required circle is (x – 3)2 + (y – 4)2 = 10

a) Find the distance of the point A from XY-Plane.

a) Which one of the following sentences is a Statement?
i) 275 is perfect square.
ii) Mathematics is a difficult subject.
iv) Today is a rainy day.
b) Verify by method of contradiction: ‘2‾√ is irrational’
a) i) 275 is perfect square.
b) Assume that 2‾√ is rational. Then 2‾√ can be written in the form 2‾√ = 𝑝𝑞, where p and q are integers without common factors.
Squaring; 2 = 𝑝2𝑞2 ⇒ 2q2 = p2
⇒ 2 divides p2 ⇒ 2 divides p
Therefore, p = 2k for some integer k.
⇒ p2 = 4k2 ⇒ 2q2 = 4k2 ⇒ q2 = 2k2
⇒ 2 divides q2 ⇒ 2 divides q
Hence p and q have common factor 2, which contradicts our assumption. Therefore, 2‾√ is irrational.

b) Find the inequalities representing the solution region.
a) L1 line passes through (2, 2) and (4, 0)
Slope = 2420 = -1
Equation is (y – 0) = -1(x – 4) ⇒ x + y = 4
L2 is parallel to the x-axis and passess through (0, 1). Hence the equation is y =1
L3 passes through (0, 0) and (2, 2). Hence the equation is y = x
b) The inequalities that form the shaded region are x + y ≤ 4; y ≥ 1; y ≤ x

Question 20.

b) If nPr=840, nCr=35 , find r.
c) English alphabet has 5 vowels and 21 consonants. How many 4 letter words with two different vowels and two different consonants can be formed without repetition of letters?
a) Given; 12(n – 1)P3 = 5(n + 1)P3
⇒ 12(n -1 )(n – 2)(n – 3) = 5 (n + 1)(n)(n – 1)
⇒ 12(n – 2)(n – 3) = 5(n + 1)(n)
⇒ 12(n2 – 5n + 6) = 5n2 + 5n
⇒ 12n2 – 60n + 72 = 5n2 +5n
⇒ 7n2 – 65n + 72 = 0
⇒ 7n2 – 56n – 9n + 72 = 0
⇒ 7n(n – 8) -9 (n – 8) = 0
⇒ (7n – 9)(n – 8) = 0 ⇒ n = 97; 8
Therefore the acceptable value of n = 8

b) nPr = r! × nCr ⇒ 840 = r! × 35 ⇒ r! = 24 ⇒ r = 4

c) Two different vowels can be selected in 5C2.
Two different consonants can be selected in 21C2.
Therefore total numbers of words

a) Calculate the mean of the distribution.
b) Find the standard deviation of the distribution.
c) Find the coefficient of variation of the distribution.
