c) x ≥ y

d) x ≤ y

e) x = y or relation cannot be established between ‘x’ and ‘y’.

### Explanations

Q.11) c

I.X= 6, 4

II.Y= 8/2, 6/2 = 4,3

x ≥ y

Q.12) d

I. x= 4, 3

II.Y= 8/2, 16/2= 4,8

Hence, x ≤ y

Q.13) c

I. x= 6, 7

II.Y= +6,-6

x ≥ y

Q.14) e

I.X= -10,-6

II.y= -10/2, -13/2 = -5, -6.5

Hence, relation cannot be established between ‘x’ and ‘y’.

Q.15) b

I. x= -5/2, -4/2 = -2.5, -2

II. y=-4/4, -4/4 = -1, -1

Hence, x<y

### Explanations:

Q.16) b

Required probability = (10C_2)/(15C_2 )=3/7

Q.18) d

From the questions,

(x+300)/20=35

X= 400m

Required difference = 400-300= 100m

Q.19) e

The present age of A = 20+5= 25 years

From the ratio,

B’s present age = ( 27/3×4-2)=34 years

Q.20) b

From the questions,

Let the investment of C is x

X+5000+x+15000+x= 200000

3x= 180000

X= Rs.60000

Investment ratio of A,B and C

75000: 65000: 60000=> 15: 13:12
