AB is a vertical pole with B at the ground level and A at the top. A man finds that the angle of elevation of the point A from a certain point C on the ground is 60°. He moves away from the pole along the line BC to a point D such that CD = 7 m. From D the angle of elevation of the point A is 45°.
Then the height of the pole is

B.

BD = AB = 7 + x
Also AB = x tan 60° = x√3
∴ x√3 = 7+x

A die is thrown. Let A be the event that the number obtained is greater than 3. Let B be the event that the number obtained is less than 5. Then P (A ∪ B) is

• 3/5

• 0

• 1

• 2/5

C.

1

A = {4, 5, 6} , B = {1, 2, 3, 4} .
Obviously P (A ∪ B) = 1.

Statement − 1: For every natural number n ≥ 2

Statement −2: For every natural number n ≥ 2,

• Statement −1 is false, Statement −2 is true

• Statement −1 is true, Statement −2 is true, Statement −2 is a correct explanation for Statement −1

• Statement −1 is true, Statement −2 is true; Statement −2 is not a correct explanation for Statement −1.

• Statement − 1 is true, Statement − 2 is false.

C.

Statement −1 is true, Statement −2 is true; Statement −2 is not a correct explanation for Statement −1.

Hence Statement −2 is not a correct explanation of Statement −1.

The mean of the numbers a, b, 8, 5, 10 is 6 and the variance is 6.80. Then which one of the following gives possible values of a and b?

• a = 0, b = 7

• a = 5, b = 2

• a = 1, b = 6

• a = 3, b = 4

D.

a = 3, b = 4

Mean of a, b, 8, 5, 10 is 6

The solution of the differential equation    satisfying the condition y (1) = 1 is

• y = ln x + x

• y = x ln x + x2

•  y = xe(x−1)

• y = x ln x + x

D.

y = x ln x + x

y = vx

Since, y (1) = 1, we have y = x log x + x
