x and b are real numbers. If b > 0 and |x| > b, then

(A) x ∈ (-b, ∞)

(B) x ∈ (-∞, b)

(C) x ∈ (-b, b)

(D) x ∈ (-∞, -b) ∪ (b, ∞)

Answer:

(D) x ∈ (-∞, -b) ∪ (b, ∞)

Explanation:

We have, |x| > b and b > 0

∴ x < -b or x > b

Thus, x ∈ (-∞, -b) ∪ (b, ∞)

Question 5.

\(\lim _{x \rightarrow 0} x \sin \left(\frac{1}{x}\right)\) is equal to

(A) 0

(B) 1

(C) \(\frac{1}{2}\)

(D) Does not exist

Answer:

(A) 0

Explanation:

We know that, \(\lim _{x \rightarrow 0} x=0\)

and -1 ≤ \(\sin \frac{1}{x}\) ≤ 1

By the sandwich theorem,

\(\lim _{x \rightarrow 0} x \sin \left(\frac{1}{x}\right)=0\)

Question 6.

Two finite sets have m and n elements. The number of subsets of the first set is 112 more than that of the second set. The values of m and n are, respectively

(A) 4, 7

(B) 7, 4

(C) 4, 4

(D) 7, 7

Answer:

(B) 7, 4

Explanation:

Number of subsets of a given set having m element = 2^{m}

Number of subsets of a given set having n element = 2^{n}

As per given condition,

⇒ 2^{m} – 2^{n} = 112

⇒ 2^{n} (2^{m-n} – 1) = 112

⇒ 2^{n} (2^{m-n} – 1) = 2^{4} × 7

⇒ n = 4, 2^{m-n} – 1 = 7

⇒ n = 4, m – n = 3

⇒ n = 4, m = 7

Question 7.

If x, 2y, 3z are in A.P., where the distinct numbers x, y, z are in G.P. then the common ratio of the G.P. is

(A) 3

(B) \(\frac{1}{3}\)

(C) 2

(D) \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Answer:

(B) \(\frac{1}{3}\)

Explanation:

Given, x, 2y, 3z are in A.P.

∴ 2(2y) = x + 3z

4y = x + 3z ……..(i)

Also, given x, y and z are in G.P.

∴ y^{2} = xz ……(ii)

From equationss (i) and (ii), we get

y^{2} = (4y – 3z)z

⇒ y^{2} = 4yz – 3z^{2}

⇒ 3z^{2} – 4yz + y^{2} = 0

⇒ 3z^{2} – 3yz – yz + y^{2} = 0

⇒ 3z(z – y) – y(z – y) = 0

⇒ (z – y)(3z – y) = 0

⇒ z – y = 0 or 3z – y = 0

⇒ z = y or 3z – y = 0

⇒ z = y or z = \(\frac{y}{3}\)

⇒ z = \(\frac{y}{3}\) [∵ z and y are distinct]\(\frac{z}{y}=\frac{1}{3}\) or r = \(\frac{1}{3}\) (∵ Common ratio in G.P. (r) = \(\frac{z}{y}\))

Question 8.

The domain of the function f given by f(x) = \(\frac{x^2+2 x+1}{x^2-x-6}\)

(A) R – {-2, 3}

(B) R – {-3, 2}

(C) R – [3, -2](D) R – (3, -2)

Answer:

(A) R – {-2, 3}

Explanation:

Given, f(x) = \(\frac{x^2+2 x+1}{x^2-x-6}\)

f(x) is defined if x^{2} – x – 6 ≠ 0

⇒ x^{2} – 3x + 2x – 6 ≠ 0

⇒ (x – 3)(x + 2) ≠ 0

⇒ x ≠ 3 and x ≠ -2

So, Domain of f(x) = R – {-2, 3}

Question 9.

Let the sets be A, B, C, D then (A × B) × (C × D) is equivalent to

(A) (A × C) × (B × D)

(B) (A × D) × (B × C)

(C) (A × C) × (B × D)

(D) None of these

Answer:

(A) (A × C) × (B × D)

Explanation:

(A × B) × (C × D) = (A × C) × (B × D)

Question 10.

In how many ways can the letters of the word BIHAR be re-arranged?

(A) 99

(B) 129

(C) 119

(D) 125

Answer:

(C) 119

Explanation:

The number of ways in which the word BIHAR can be rearranged = 5!

= 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1

= 120

Since one arranged i.e., BIHAR is given, the number of ways in which the word BIHAR can be re-arranged = 120 – 1 = 119

Question 11.

The total number of words formed by 2 vowels and 3 consonants taken from 4 vowels and 5 consonants is equal to

(A) 60

(B) 120

(C) 7200

(D) 720

Answer:

(C) 7200

Explanation:

Total no. of required ways = ^{4}C_{2} × ^{5}C_{3} × 5!

= \(\frac{4 !}{2 ! 2 !} \times \frac{5 !}{3 ! 2 !} \times 5 !\)

= 6 × 10 × 120

= 7200

Question 12.

The value of sin (45° + θ) – cos (45° – θ) is

(A) 2 cos θ

(B) 2 sin θ

(C) 1

(D) 0

Answer:

(D) 0

Explanation:

sin (45° + θ) – cos (45° – θ)

= (sin 45° cos θ + cos 45° sin θ) – (cos 45° cos θ + sin 45° sin θ)

[∵ sin (A + B) = sin A cos B + cos A sin B, cos (A – B) = cos A cos B + sin A sin B]= \(\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \cos \theta+\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \sin \theta\right)-\left(\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \cos \theta+\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \sin \theta\right)\)

= 0

Question 13.

(A) 4

(B) 17

(C) 13

(D) 21

Answer:

(C) 13

Explanation:

Range = Max. Value – Min. value

Range = 17 – 4 = 13

Question 14.

The first three term of a G.P. are m – 1, m + 1, m + 7. Find the value of m.

(A) 7

(B) 5

(C) 6

(D) 3

Answer:

(B) 5

Explanation:

The first three terms of a geometric progression are m – 2, m + 1 and m + 7.

Common ratio = \(\frac{a_2}{a_1}\) = \(\frac{a_3}{a_2}\)

⇒ \(\frac{m+1}{m-2}=\frac{m+7}{m+1}\)

⇒ (m + 1)^{2} = (m + 7)(m – 2)

⇒ m^{2} + 2m + 1 = m^{2} + 5m – 14

⇒ 3m = 15

⇒ m = 5

Question 15.

A plane is parallel to YZ plane, so it is perpendicular to

(A) X-axis

(B) Y-axis

(C) Z-axis

(D) None of these

Answer:

(A) X-axis

Explanation:

If a plane is parallel to the YZ plane, it is perpendicular to the X-axis.

Question 16.

If the coefficients of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th terms in the expansion of (1 + x)^{n} are in A.P., then the value of n is

(A) 2

(B) 7

(C) 11

(D) 14

Answer:

(B) 7

Explanation:

We know that,

\((1+x)^n={ }^n C_0+{ }^n C_1 x+{ }^n C_2 x^2+{ }^n C_3 x^3+\ldots+{ }^n C_n x^n\)

Now, ^{n}C_{1}, ^{n}C_{2}, and ^{n}C_{3} are coefficients of the second, third, and fourth terms in A.P.

∴ 2 . ^{n}C_{2} = ^{n}C_{1} + ^{n}C_{3}

⇒ \(\text { 2. } \frac{n !}{2 !(n-2) !}=\frac{n !}{1 !(n-1) !}+\frac{n !}{3 !(n-3) !}\)

⇒ n(n – 1) = n + \(\frac{n(n-1)(n-2)}{6}\)

⇒ 6n(n – 1) = 6n + n(n – 1)(n – 2)

⇒ 6(n – 1) = 6 + (n – 1)(n – 2)

⇒ 6n – 6 = 6 + n^{2} – 3n + 2

⇒ n^{2} – 9n + 14 = 0

⇒ n – 7n – 2n + 14 = 0

⇒ n(n – 7) – 2(n – 2) = 0

⇒ (n – 7)(n – 2) = 0

Thus, n = 2 or n = 7

Question 17.

The area of the circle centered at (1, 2) and passing through the point (4, 6) is

(A) 5π sq. units

(B) 10π sq. units

(C) 25π sq. units

(D) None of these

Answer:

(C) 25π sq. units

Explanation:

Radius of circle (r) = \(\sqrt{(4-1)^2+(6-2)^2}\)

= \(\sqrt{(3)^2+(4)^2}\)

= √25

= 5 units

Thus, the area of the circle = πr^{2}

= π(5)^{2}

= 25π sq. units

Question 18.

The coefficient of x^{6} in the expansion of (1 + x^{2} + x)^{-3} is

(A) 9

(B) 3

(C) 1

(D) 0

Answer:

Explanation:

**Assertion-Reason Based Questions**

In the following questions, a statement of Assertion (A) is followed by a statement of Reason (R). Choose the correct answer out of the following choices.

(A) Both (A) and (R) are true and (R) is the correct explanation of (A).

(B) Both (A) and (R) are true but (R) is not the correct explanation of (A).

(C) (A) is true but (R) is false.

(D) (A) is false but (R) is true.

Question 19.

Assertion (A): If 3x + 8 > 2, then x ∈ {-1, 0, 1, 2,…}, when x is an integer.

Reason (R): The solution set of the inequality 4x + 3 < 5x + 7 ∀ x ∈ R is [4, ∞).

Answer:

(C) (A) is true but (R) is false.

Explanation:

The assertion is correct. 3x + 8 > 2

3x > -6

x > -2

x ∈ {-1, 0, 1, 2,…}

The reason is incorrect.

4x + 3 < 5x + 7

-x < 4

x > -4

x ∈ (-4, ∞)

Question 20.

Assertion (A): The probability of getting a head in a toss of an unbiased coin is \(\frac{1}{2}\).

Reason (R): In a simultaneous toss of two coins, the probability of getting ‘no tails’ is \(\frac{1}{4}\).

Answer:

(B) Both (A) and (R) are true but (R) is not the correct explanation of (A).

Explanation:

The assertion is correct.

The sample space for tossing a coin is given by S = {H, T}

n(S) = 2

The event for getting a head is only one (H).

n(E) = 1

So, required probability = \(\frac{1}{2}\)

The reason is correct.

The sample space for tossing two coins is given by S = {HH, HT, TH, TT}

n(S) = 4

The event for getting no tail is only one (HH).

n(E) = 1

So, required probability = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Question 21.

The coefficient of variation of the two distributions are 60 and 70, and their standard deviations are 21 and 16 respectively. What are their arithmetic mean?

OR

Find the standard deviation of the first ‘ten’ natural numbers.

Answer:

Given, CV_{1} = 60, CV_{2} = 70

σ_{1} = 21, σ_{2} = 16

∴ Their arithmetic mean is 35 and 22.85.

OR

Here, the variables are 1, 2, 3,…, 9, 10

N = 10

∴ Standard deviation,

Question 22.

Differentiate \(\frac{x}{\sin x}\) with respect to x.

Answer:

Let f(x) = \(\frac{x}{\sin x}\)

= cosec x – x cot x cosec x

= (1 – x cot x) . cosec x

Question 23.

Write the last two digits of the number 3400.

OR

In a G.P., the 3rd term is 24, and the 6th term is 192. Find the 10th term.

Answer:

We observe that all terms except the first one are divisible by 100, so the remainder when 3400 ÷ 100 is the same as the \(\left[{ }^{400} C_0(1)^{400}(2)^0\right]\) ÷ 100 = 1 ÷ 100

Therefore, the remainder when 3400 ÷ 100 is the same as when 1 ÷ 100, which is 0.01.

The last two digits are 0.01.

OR

Let the first term of G.P.be a and the common ratio be r.

Given, T_{3} = 24

⇒ ar^{2} = 24 ……(i)

and T_{6} = 192

⇒ ar^{5} = 192 …….(ii)

Dividing eq. (i) by (ii), we get

\(\frac{a r^5}{a r^2}=\frac{192}{24}\)

⇒ r^{3} = 8

⇒ r = 2

Putting the value of r in eq. (i), we get

a(2)^{2} = 24

⇒ a = 6

∴ T_{10} = ar^{9}

= 6(2)^{9}

= 3072

Question 24.

If the arcs of the same lengths in two circles subtend angles 75°and 120° at the center, find the ratio of their radii.

Answer:

Let r_{1} and r_{2} be the radii of the two circles.

Given, θ_{1} = 75°

= \(\frac{\pi}{180} \times 75\) radians

= \(\frac{5}{12} \pi\) radians

and θ_{2} = 120°

= \(\frac{\pi}{180} \times 120\) radians

= \(\frac{4}{6} \pi\) radians

Let l be the length of each of the arc.

Then l = r_{1}θ_{1} = r_{2}θ_{2}, which gives

\(\frac{5}{12} \pi \times r_1=\frac{4}{6} \pi \times r_2\)

⇒ \(\frac{r_1}{r_2}=\frac{\frac{4}{6}}{\frac{5}{12}}=\frac{8}{5}\)

Hence r_{1} : r_{2} = 8 : 5.

Question 25.

If the letters of the word ‘RACHIT’ are arranged in all possible ways as listed in the dictionary. Then, what is the rank of the word ‘RACHIT’?

Answer:

The letters of the word ‘RACHTT in alphabetical order are A, C, H, I, R, and T.

Now, words beginning with A = 5!

words beginning with C = 5!

words beginning with H = 5!

words beginning with I = 5!

Word beginning with R i.e., RACHIT = 1

The rank of the word ‘RACHIT’ in the dictionary = 4 × 5! + 1

= 4 × 120 + 1

= 480 + 1

= 481

[This section comprises short answer type questions (SA) of 3 marks each]

Question 26.

The hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle has its ends at the points (1, 3) and (-4, 1). Find the equation of the perpendicular sides of the triangle.

Answer:

Let us plot the points A(1, 3) and B(-4, 1) in the XY-plane.

From A(1, 3), we draw a line parallel to the Y-axis, and from B(-4, 1), we draw a line parallel to the X-axis.

These two lines meet at C, which is the right angle of ∆ABC.

The coordinates of C are (1, 1).

Now, equation of the line passing through B(-4, 1) and C(1, 1) is given by

y – 1 = \(\frac{1-1}{1+4}(x+4)\)

⇒ y = 1

and equation of the line passing through A(1, 3) and B(1, 1) is given by

y – 1 = \(\frac{1-3}{1-1}(x-1)\)

⇒ x = 1

∴ The equation of the two perpendicular lines is x = 1 and y = 1.

Question 27.

Evaluate: \(\left(1+\cos \frac{\pi}{8}\right)\left(1+\cos \frac{3 \pi}{8}\right)\left(1+\cos \frac{5 \pi}{8}\right)\left(1+\cos \frac{7 \pi}{8}\right)\)

Answer:

We have,

Question 28.

Find real θ such that \(\frac{3+2 i \sin \theta}{1-2 i \sin \theta}\) is purely real.

OR

Prove that 33! is divisible by 2^{15}. What is the largest integer n such that 33! is divisible by 2^{n}?

Answer:

For z to be purely real

\(\frac{8 \sin \theta}{1+4 \sin ^2 \theta}\) = 0

⇒ sin θ = 0

⇒ θ = 0, π, 2π

Hence θ = nπ

OR

33! = 33 × 32 × 31 × 30 × 29….. × 16…… × 8 × 7 × 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1

= 33 × (2)^{5} × 31 × 30 × 29 ×….. × (2)^{4}….. × (2)^{3} × 7 × 6 × 5 × (2)^{2} × 3 × (2)^{1} × 1

Now take all 2’s out we get

33! = (2)^{5} . (2)^{4} . (2)^{3} . (2)^{2} . (2)^{1} [33 × 31 × 30 × 29 ×….. × 1][33 × 31 × 30 × 29 × …… × 1] contains numbers 6, 10, 12, 14, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, and 30, which have 2 as one of their factors.

So, the product of 2 present in these numbers = 2 × 2 × 2^{2} × 2 × 2 × 2^{2} × 2 × 2^{3} × 2 × 2^{2} × 2 = 2^{16}

Therefore, we have 2^{15} × 2^{16} = 2^{31}

Thus, 31 is the largest integer such that 33! is divisible by 2^{n}.

Question 29.

An arc is in the form of a semi-ellipse. It is 8 m wide and 2 m high at the center. Find the height of the arc at a point 1.5 m from one end.

OR

Find the coordinates of the point P which is five-sixth of the way from A(-2, 0, 6) to B(10, -6, -12).

Answer:

Let ABA’ be the given arc such that AA’ = 8 m and OB = 2 m.

The arc is a part of the ellipse.

AA’ = 8 m

⇒ 2a = 8

⇒ a = 4

and OB = 2 m

⇒ b = 2

∴ The equation of the ellipse is \(\frac{x^2}{16}+\frac{y^2}{4}=1\) ……(i)

To find PM.

Putting x = 2.5 = \(\frac{5}{2}\) and y = PM

∴ The height of the arc at a point 1.5 from one end is \(\frac{\sqrt{39}}{4}\) m

OR

Let P(x, y, z) be the required point which is \(\frac{5}{6}\) of AB.

Question 30.

A box contains 10 red marbles, 20 blue marbles, and 30 green marbles. 5 marbles are drawn from the box. What is the probability that

(i) All will be blue?

(ii) At least one will be green.

OR

A committee of two persons is selected from two men and two women. What is the probability that the committee will have

(i) no man?

(ii) one man?

(iii) two man?

Answer:

Total number of marbles = 10 + 20 + 30 = 60

Number of ways of drawing 5 marbles from 60 marbles = ^{60}C_{5}.

(i) All the drawn marbles will be blue if we draw 5 marbles out of 20 blue marbles.

5 blue marbles can be drawn from 20 blue marbles in ^{20}C_{5} ways.

∴ Probability that all marbles will be blue = \(\frac{{ }^{20} C_5}{{ }^{60} C_5}\)

(ii) Number of ways in which the drawn marbles are not green = \({ }^{(20+10)} C_5={ }^{30} C_5\)

∴ Probability that no marble is green = \(\frac{{ }^{30} C_5}{{ }^{60} C_5}\)

∴ Probability that at least one marble is green = 1 – \(\frac{{ }^{30} C_5}{{ }^{60} C_5}\)

OR

Let w_{1}, w_{2} be the two women, and M_{1}, M_{2} be the two men. Then, sample space,

S = {w_{1}w_{2}, w_{1}M_{1}, w_{1}M_{2}, w_{2}w_{1}, w_{2}M_{1}, w_{2}M_{2}, M_{1}w_{1}, w_{1}w_{2}, M_{1}M_{2}, M_{2}w_{1}, M_{2}w_{2}, M_{2}w_{1}}

⇒ n(S) = 12

(i) Let ‘A’ be the event of selecting no man.

∴ A = {w_{1}w_{2}, w_{2}w_{1}}

⇒ n(A) = 2

∴ P(A) = \(\frac{n(A)}{n(S)}=\frac{2}{12}=\frac{1}{6}\)

Thus, the probability of selecting no man is \(\frac{1}{6}\).

(ii) Let ‘B’ be the event of selecting one man.

∴ B = {w_{1}M_{1}, w_{1}M_{2}, w_{2}M_{1}, w_{2}M_{2}, M_{1}w_{1}, M_{1}w_{2}, M_{2}w_{1}, M_{2}w_{2}}

⇒ n(B) = 8

⇒ P(B) = \(\frac{n(B)}{n(S)}=\frac{8}{12}=\frac{2}{3}\)

Thus, the probability of selecting one man is \(\frac{2}{3}\).

(iii) Let ‘C’ be the event of selecting 2 men.

∴ C = {M_{1}M_{2}, M_{2}M_{1}}

⇒ n(C) = 2

∴ P(C) = \(\frac{n(C)}{n(S)}=\frac{2}{12}=\frac{1}{6}\)

Thus, the probability of selecting 2 men is \(\frac{1}{6}\).

Question 31.

If A = {1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17}, B = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18}, U = {1, 2, 3,……….} and U is universal set then find A’ ∪ {(A ∪ B) ∩ B’}.

Answer:

Given, A = {1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17}

i.e., A = {x : x is an odd number; 1 ≤ x ≤ 18}

and B = {2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18}

i.e., B = {x : x is an even number; 1 ≤ x ≤ 18}

Now, A’ = {x : x is an even number; 1 ≤ x ≤ 18}

= {2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18}

= B

and B’ = {x : x is an odd number; 1 ≤ x ≤ 18}

Question 32.

Answer:

Question 33.

Three positive numbers form an increasing G.P. If the middle term in the G.P. is doubled, the new numbers are in A.P., then the common ratio of the G.P.

OR

In the expansion of (x + a)^{n}, if O and the sum of the even term by E denote the sum of odd terms. Then, prove that:

(i) O^{2} – E^{2} =(x^{2} – a^{2})^{n}

(ii) 4OE = (x + a)^{2n} – (x – a)^{2n}

Answer:

The three numbers in G.P. be \(\frac{a}{r}\), a, ar

The double of the middle term is 2a.

Now, \(\frac{a}{r}\), 2a, ar becomes in A.P.

∴ t_{2} – t_{1} = t_{3} – t_{2}

⇒ 2a – \(\frac{a}{r}\) = ar – 2a

⇒ \(\frac{2 a r-a}{r}\) = ar – 2a

⇒ 2ar – a = ar^{2} – 2ar

⇒ ar^{2} – 4ar + a = 0

⇒ r^{2} – 4r + 1 = 0

solving the quadratic equation, we get r = 2 ± √3

OR

(i) Given expansion is (x + a)^{n}

∴ (x + a)^{n} = \({ }^n C_0 x^n a^0+{ }^n C_1 x^{n-1} a^1+{ }^n C_2 x^{n-2} a^2\) + \({ }^n C_3 x^{n-3} a^3+\ldots+{ }^n C_n a^n\)

Now, the sum of odd terms

i.e., O = \({ }^n C_0 x^n+{ }^n C_2 x^{n-2} a^2+\ldots\)

and the sum of even terms

i.e., E = \({ }^n C_1 x^{n-1} a+{ }^n C_3 x^{n-3} a^3+\ldots\)

∴ (x + a)^{n} = O + E ……(i)

Similarly, (x – a)^{n} = O – E …..(ii)

∴ (O + E)(O – E) = (x + a)^{n} (x – a)^{n}

[on multiplying equations (i) and (ii)]⇒ O^{2} – E^{2} = (x^{2} – a^{2})^{n}

(ii) 4OE = (O + E)^{2} – (O – E)^{2}

= [(x + a)^{n}]^{2} – [(x – a)^{n}]^{2} [from equations (i) and (ii)]= (x + a)^{2n} – (x – a)^{2n}

Hence Proved.

Question 34.

Calculate the variance and standard deviation for the following data:

Class |
30-40 | 40-50 | 50-60 | 60-70 | 70-80 | 80-90 | 90-100 |

Frequency |
3 | 7 | 12 | 15 | 8 | 3 | 2 |

Answer:

Question 35.

If sin(θ + α) = a and sin(θ + β) = b, then prove that cos2(α – β) – 4ab cos(α – β) = 1 – 2a^{2} – 2b^{2}.

OR

Using the properties of sets and their complements prove that (A ∪ B) – C = (A – C) ∪ (B – C)

Answer:

Given, sin(θ + α) = a and sin(θ + β) = b

cos(α – β) = cos[θ + α – θ – β]= cos[(θ + α) – (θ + β)]= cos (θ + α) cos (θ + β) + sin (θ + α) sin (θ + β)

= \(\sqrt{1-\sin ^2(\theta+\alpha)} \sqrt{1-\sin ^2(\theta+\beta)}+a \cdot b\)

= \(\sqrt{\left(1-a^2\right)\left(1-b^2\right)}\) + ab

= ab + \(\sqrt{1-a^2-b^2+a^2 b^2}\)

Now, cos2(α – β) – 4ab cos(α – β) = 2cos2(α – β) – 1 – 4ab cos(α – β) [∵ cos 2θ = 2cos^{2}θ – 1]

Hence, cos2(α – β) – 4ab cos (α – β) = 1 – 2a^{2} – 2b^{2}

Hence proved.

OR

(A ∪ B) – C = (A – C) ∪ (B – C)

Let x ∈ [(A∪ B) – C]x ∈ (A ∪ B) and x ∉ C

(x ∉ A or x ∉ B) and x ∉ C

(x ∉ A and x ∉ C) or (x ∉ B and x ∉ C)

x ∉ {(A – C) or x ∉ (B – C)}

x ∉ {(A – C) ∪ (B – C)}

(A ∪ B) – C ⊆ (A – C) ∪ (B – C) ……(i)

Again, Let y ∉ [(A – C) ∪ (B – C)]y ∈ (A – C) or y ∈ (B – C)

(y ∈ A and y ∉ C) or (y ∈ B and y ∉ C)

(y ∈ A or y ∈ B) and y ∉ C

y ∈ {(A ∪ B) and y ∉ C}

y ∈ {(A ∪ B) – C}

(A – C) ∪ (B – C) ⊆ (A ∪ B) – C …..(ii)

From eqs. (i) and (ii),

(A ∪ B) – C = (A – C) ∪ (B – C)

Hence proved.
