If a2 + 1 = a,  then the value of a12 + a6 + 1 is

• 2

• 3

• -3

• 1

B.

3

a2 + 1 = a On Squaring both sides, we get, On Cubing both sides, we get, If we put a = 1  in equation (i), it satisfies the equation. i.e. a = 1.
Now,  put a = 1. in  a12 + a6 + 1 i.e (1)12 + (1)6 + 1 = 3

Mohan gets 3 marks for each correct sum and loses 2 marks for each wrong sum. He attempts 30 sums and obtains 40 marks. The number of sums solved correctly is

• 25

• 10

• 15

• 20

D.

20

Let the number of sums solved correctly by Mohan be x.
Then, According to the question,
(3) x (x) - (30 - x) x 2 = 40
⟹          3x - 60 + 2x = 40
⟹             5x - 60 = 40
⟹              5x = 60 + 40
⟹                5x = 100
⟹                 x = 100/5 = 20
∴  Mohan attempted 20 questions correctly.
