Six friends went to PVR and the seats were numbered from 1 to 16. If the first person sat on the chair numbered 3 then the sixth person will be sitting on chair numbered _____. Assuming they all sit together.

9

8

7

6

#### SOLUTION

Solution :B

As the first person is sitting on the chair numbered 3, the sixth person is five places away from the first person.

So, we need to add five places to the chair numbered 3.

∴ Sixth person will sit on the chair numbered 8.

### Question 2

Which of the following statements are correct?

i) 0 + 2 is a whole number.

ii) 0 ÷ 49843 is a not a whole number.

iii) 98645 × 5678 = 5678 × 98645

#### SOLUTION

Solution :C

i) 0 + 2 = 2 which is a whole number. Also, whole numbers are closed under addition.

ii) 0 ÷ 49843 = 0 which is a whole number.

iii) 98645 × 5678 = 5678 × 98645

This represents commutative property of multiplication.

### Question 3

Ramya wanted to arrange 90 sweets (of dimensions 1×1) in a box. She has 5 boxes of dimensions 10×9, 9×10, 5×18, 16×5 and 18×5. Among these boxes, in which box can she NOT arrange all the sweets?

10×9

16×5

18×5

5×18

#### SOLUTION

Solution :B

The area occupied by one sweet will be 1×1=1 sq units and she has to arrange 90 sweets in the box.

Minimum space needed by Ramya to arrange all the sweets is 90 sq units.

Except for 16×5 the size of all the boxes is 90 sq units.

16×5=80 sq units so she cannot arrange all the sweets in this box.

2. Start at the number 6 and make 5 jumps to the right, we land at 11. Hence, 6 + 5 = 11.

Because we are adding numbers, we move towards the right on the number line.

### Question 9
