Question 1 of 30
1. Question
How many 5digit telephone numbers can be constructed using the digits 0 to 9, if each number starts with 67 and no digit appears more than once?
Correct
Number of ways to fill the IIIrd place = 8
Number of ways to fill the IVth place = 7
Number of ways to fill the Vth place = 6
Hence, by FPC total number of ways = 8 × 7 × 6 = 56 × 6 = 336

2. Question
If the number of ways of selecting n cards out of unlimited number of cards bearing the number 0, 9, 3, so that they cannot be used to write the number 903 is 93, then n is equal to
Correct
We cannot write 903
If in the selection of n cards, we get either
(9 or 3), (9 or 0), (0 or 3), (only 0), (only 3) or (only 9)
Can be selected = 2 × 2 × 2 × ……… n times = 2^{n}
Similarly, (9 or 0) or (3 or 0) can be selected 2^{n}
In the above selection (only 0) or (only 3) or (only 9) is repeated twice
∴ Total ways = 2^{n} + 2^{n} + 2^{n} – 3 = 93
⇒ 3.2^{n} = 96
⇒ 2^{n} = 32 = 2^{5}
∴ n = 5

Six points in a plane be joined in all possible ways by indefinite straight lines and if no two of them be coincident or parallel and no three pass through the same point (with the exception of the original 6 points). The number of distinct points or intersection is equal to
Correct
Number of lines from 6 point = ^{6}C_{2} = 15
Points of intersection obtained from these lines = ^{15}C_{2} = 105
Now, we find the number of times, the original 6 points come.
Consider one point say A_{1}. Joining A_{1} to remaining 5 points, we get 5 lines and any two lines from these 5 lines gives A_{1} as the point of intersection.
∴ A_{1} is common in ^{5}C_{2} = 10 times out of 105 points of intersections.
Similar is the case with other five points.
∴ 6 original points come 6 × 10 = 60 times in points of intersection.
Hence, the number of distinct points of intersection

CaseI If B is right on A
Sub case –I C is right on B
then no. of ways = (4 – 2)! = 6
Sub caseII if D is right on B
then no. of ways = (4 – 1)! = 6
