l = cos 90° = 0, m = cos 135° = –\({\frac{1}{\sqrt2}}\)

and n = cos 45° = \({\frac{1}{\sqrt2}}\)

Hence, the direction cosines of the line are

<0, –\({\frac{1}{\sqrt2}}\), \({\frac{1}{\sqrt2}}\)>

(a) 1 × 8

(b) 2 × 4

(c) 4 × 2

(d) 4 × 4

Solution:

(d) We know that if a matrix of order mxn, then it has mn elements. Thus, to find all the possible order of a matrix with 8 elements, we will find all the ordered pairs of natural numbers, whose product is 8. Thus, all possible ordered pairs are (1, 8), (8, 1), (2, 4), (4, 2).

Question 4.

The probability distribution of a random variable x is given as under

Solution:

(b)The probability distribution is

We know that ∑ P_{l} = 1

∴ k + 4k + 9k + 8k + 10k + 12k = 1

⇒ 44k = 1

⇒ k = \({\frac{1}{44}}\)

Question 5.

not invertible?

Solution:

(a) ±4

(b) ± 2

(c) ±3

(d) ± 1

Solution:

(c) Given area of a triangle with vertices (-3, 0), (3, 0) and (0, k) is 9 sq units.

Question 9.

(a) 0

(b) 1

(c) 0.5

Solution:

(a) We know that if A and B are mutually exclusive, then P(A ∩ B) = 0.

Question 10.

The direction cosines of a line are k, k, k, then

(a) k > 0

(b) 0 < k < 1

(c) k = 1

(d) k = ± \({\frac{1}{\sqrt3}}\)

Solution:

(d) We have, l = m = n = k

We know that l² + m² + n² = 1

⇒ k² + k² + k² = 1 ⇒ 3k² = 1

⇒ k² = \(\frac{1}{3}\)

⇒ k = ±\({\frac{1}{\sqrt3}}\)

Question 11.

The order and degree of the differential equation \(\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}+(\frac{dy}{dx})^{\frac{1}{4}}\) + x^{1/5} = 0 respectively, are

(a) 2 and 4

(b) 2 and 2

(c) 2 and 3

(d) 3 and 3

(d) 4, -3, 0

Solution:

(d) Given, equation of line can be written as

Question 13.

Which of the following is not a homogeneous function of x and y ?

(a) x² + 2xy

(b) 2x – y

(c) cos²(\(\frac{y}{x}\) + \(\frac{y}{x}\)

(d) sin x – cos y

Solution:

(d) Since, sin x-cos y can’t expressed in the form x^{n}(\(\frac{y}{x}\)) or y^{n}h(\(\frac{x}{y}\)), therefore, it is not a homogeneous function.

Question 14.

The derivative of \(\frac{x^3}{cos x}\) is, when x = 0

(a) \(\frac{x^3}{sin x}\)

(b) 1

(c) 0

(d) \(\frac{x^2}{cos^2 x}\)

Solution:

Question 15.

If y = x(x – 3)² decreases for the values of x given by

(a) 1 < x < 3

(b) x < 0

(c) x > 0

(d) 0 < x < \(\frac{3}{2}\)

Solution:

(a) We have, y = x(x – 3)²

∴ \(\frac{dx}{dy}\) = x . 2(x – 3) . 1 + (x – 3)² . 1

= 2x² – 6x + x² + 9 – 6x = 3x² – 12x + 9

= 3(x² – x + 3)= 3(x – 3)(x – 1)

So, y = x(x – 3)² decreases from (1, 3).

[since, y’ < 0 for all x ∈ (1, 3), hence y is decreasing on (1, 3)]

Question 16.

If a die is thrown and a card is selected at random from a deck of 52 playing cards, then the probability of getting an even number on the die and a spade card equals

(a) \(\frac{1}{4}\)

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

(c) \(\frac{1}{8}\)

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

Solution:

(c) Let the event A and B are getting an even number on die and getting spade card, respectively.

Question 17.

(a) ± √3

(b) 2

(c) ± 3

(d) ± √2

Solution:

Question 18.

The interval in which y = x² e^{-x} is increasing, is

(a) (-∞, ∞)

(b) (-2, 0)

(c) (2, ∞)

(d) (0, 2)

Solution:

(d) Given, y = x²e^{-x}

On differentiating w.r.t. x, we get

\(\frac{dy}{dx}\) = x² e^{-x} (-1) + e^{-x} (2x)

= xe^{-x}(-x + 2) = xe^{-x} (2 – x)

For increasing function, \(\frac{dy}{dx}\) > 0

⇒ xe^{-x} (2 – x) > 0

Case I

⇒ x > 0 and 2 – x > 0

⇒ x > 0 and x < 2

⇒ 0 < x < 2

Case II

⇒ x < 0 and 2 – x < 0

⇒ x < 0 and x > 2

Hence, there is no value of x exist.

Clearly, it is increasing in (0, 2).

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) Let A = {2, 4, 6} and B = {3, 5, 7, 9} and defined a function f = {(2, 3), (4, 5), (6, 7)} from A to B. Then, f is not onto.

Reason (R) A function f: A → B is said to be onto, if every element of B is the image of some elements of A under f.

Solution:

(b) Assertion Given that,

A = {2, 4, 6},

B = {3, 5, 7,9}

and R = {(2, 3), (4, 5), (6, 7)}

Here, f(2) = 3, f(4) = 5 and f(6) = 7

It can be seen that the images of distinct elements of A under f are distinct.

Hence, function f is one-one but f is not onto, as 9 e 8 does not have a pre-image in A.

Hence, both Assertion and Reason are true, but Reason is not the correct explanation of Assertion.

Question 20.

Assertion (A) Consider the linear programming problem.

Maximize Z = 4x + y, subject to constraints are x + y ≤ 50, x + y ≥ 100, and x, y ≥ 0. Then, maximum value of Z is 50.

Reason (R) If the shaded region is not bounded, then maximum value cannot be determined.

Solution:

(d) Assertion Given, maximize Z = 4x + y

and x + y < 50, x + y > 100; x, y > 0

Hence, it is clear from the graph that it is not bounded region. So, maximum value cannot be determined.

Hence, Assertion is false but Reason is true.

Section B

(This section comprises of very short answer type questions (VSA) of 2 marks each)

Question 21.

Solution:

Question 22.

If two vectors \(\vec{a}\) and \(\vec{b}\) are such that |\(\vec{a}\)| = 2, |\(\vec{b}\)| = 3 and \(\vec{a}.\vec{b}\) = 4, then find |\(\vec{a}-\vec{b}\)|.

Solution:

Question 23.

Evaluate ∫e^{x} (cos x – sin x)dx.

Or

Evaluate ∫xe^{x} dx.

Solution:

Let l = ∫e^{x}(cos x-s\nx)dx

⇒ I = ∫e^{x}{cos x + (-sin x)}dx

Let f(x) = cos x ⇒ f'(x) = -sin x

We know that ∫e^{x}{f{x)+ f'(x)}dx = e^{x }f(x) + C

∴ From Eq, (i), we get

l = e^{x} cos x + C

Or

Question 24.

Let A and B be two events of the same sample space S of an experiment, then prove that 0 ≤ P (A/B) ≤ 1, B ≠ Φ.

Section C

Question 26.

Solution:

For f(x) to be continuous at x = 0, we must have

Question 27.

Show that the relation S in set

A = {x ∈ Z : 0 ≤ x ≤ 12} given by

S = {(a, b): a, b ∈ A, |a – b| is divisible by 4}

is an equivalence relation. Find the set of all elements related to 1.

Solution:

Given relation is

S = {(a, b): |a – b| is divisible by 4 and a, b ∈ A} and A = {x : x ∈ Z and 0 < x < 12}

Now, A can be written as

A = {0, 1, 2, 3 12}

Reflexive As for any x ∈ A, we get

|x – x| = 0, which is divisible by 4.

⇒ (x, x) ∈ S, ∀ x ∈ A

Therefore, S is reflexive.

Symmetric As for any (x, y) ∈ S, we get | x – y| is divisible by 4. [by using definition of given relation]⇒ | x – y| = 4λ., for some λ ∈ Z

⇒ |y – x| = 4λ, for some λ ∈ Z

⇒ (y, x) ∈ S

Thus, (x, y) ∈ S

⇒ (y, x) ∈ S, ∀ x, y ∈ A

Therefore, S is symmetric.

Transitive For any (x, y) ∈ S and (y, z) ∈ S, we get |x – y| is divisible by 4 and |y – z| is divisible by 4.

[by using definition of given relation]⇒ | x – y| = 4λ and |y – z| = 4µ, for some λ, µ ∈ Z.

Now, x – z = (x – y) + (y – z)

= ± 4λ ± 4µ = ± 4 (λ + µ)

⇒ |x – z| is divisible by 4.

⇒ (x, z) ∈ S

Thus, (x, y) ∈ S and (y, z) ∈ S

⇒ (x, z) ∈ S, ∀ x, y, z ∈ A

Therefore, S is transitive.

Since, S is reflexive, symmetric and transitive, so it is an equivalence relation.

Now, set of all elements related to 1 is {1, 5, 9}.

Question 28.

Evaluate ∫tan(x – θ)tan(x + θ) tan 2xdx.

Or

Evaluate \(\frac{sin x – xcos x}{x(x+sin x)}\)dx

Solution:

We know that

Question 29.

Sketch the region {(x, y) : x = \(\sqrt{4-y^2}\)} and F-axis. Find the area of the region using integration.

Solution:

Given region is {(x, y): x = \({\sqrt{4-y^2}}\)} and Y-axis.

We have, x = \({\sqrt{4-y^2}}\) ⇒ x² = 4 – y² ⇒ x² + y² = 4

This represents the equation of circle having centre (0, 0) and radius 2.

But original equation isx = \({\sqrt{4-y^2}}\), so x is positive. It means that we have to take a curve to the right side of the Y-axis.

Thus, only semi-circle is formed to the right side of the Y-axis.

Since, the region is symmetrical about X-axis.

∴ Area of shaded region,

Question 30.

Find the intervals in which the function f (x) = 20 – 9x + 6x² – x³ is

(i) strictly increasing.

(ii) strictly decreasing.

Solution:

Given function is f(x) = 20 – 9x + 6x² -x³.

On differentiating both sides w.r.t. x, we get

f'(x) = – 9 + 12x – 3x²

On putting f(x) = 0, we get

-9+ 12x – 3x² = 0

⇒ -3 (x² – 4x + 3) = 0

⇒ -3 (x – 1)(x – 3) = 0

⇒ (x – 1)(x – 3) = 0

⇒ x – 1 = 0 or x – 3 = 0

⇒ x = 1 or 3

Now, we find intervals in which f(x) is strictly increasing or strictly decreasing.

Interval |
f'(x) = -3 (x – 1) (x- 3) |
Sign of f'(x) |

x < 1 | (-)(-)(-) | – ve |

1 < x < 3 | (-)(+)(-) | + ve |

x > 3 | (-)(+)(+) | – ve |

We know that a function f{x) is said to be strictly increasing when f’(x) > 0 and it is said to be strictly decreasing, if f'(x) < 0. So, the given function f(x) is

(i) strictly increasing on the interval (1, 3).

(ii) strictly decreasing on the intervals (-∞, 1) and (3, ∞).

Question 31.

Three cards are drawn successively without replacement from a pack of 52 well-shuffled cards. What is the probability that first two cards are king and the third card drawn is an ace?

Or

A and B are independent events. The probability that both A and B occur is \(\frac{1}{8}\) and the probability that neither occurs is \(\frac{3}{8}\). Find P(A) and P(B).

Solution:

There are 52 cards in a pack.

∴ n(S) = 52

Let A = Event that the card drawn is king

and B = Event that the card drawn is an ace.

Now, P(A) = \(\frac{4}{52}\)

P(\(\frac{A}{A}\)) = Probability of drawing second king when one king has already been drawn

= \(\frac{3}{51}\) [∵ remaining cards are (52 – 1) = 51]

P(\(\frac{B}{AA}\)) = Probability of drawing third card to be an A ace when two kings have already been drawn

\(\frac{4}{50}\)

Now, probability of getting first two cards are king and third card is an ace = P(A ∩ A ∩ B)

Question 32.

system of equations

x – y + z = 4, x – 2y – 2z = 9

and 2x + y + 3z = 1.

Solution:

We have, f(x) = x² – 4x + 7

∴ f(A) = A² – 4A + 7l_{2}

Hence proved

Now, f'(A) = 0

⇒ A² = 4A + 7l_{2} =0 =

⇒ A² = 4A – 7l_{2}

⇒ A³ = A²A = (4A – 7l_{2})A = 4A² – 7l_{2}A

⇒ A³ = 4(4A – 7l_{2}) – 7A [using A² = 4A – 7l_{2}]⇒ A³ = 9A – 28l_{2}

⇒ A^{4} = A³A = (9A – 28l_{2})A

⇒ A^{4} = 9A² – 28A = 9(4A – 7l_{2}) – 28A [using A² = 4A – 7l_{2}]⇒ A^{4} = 36A – 63l_{2} – 28A = 8A – 63l_{2}

⇒ A^{5} = A^{4}A = (84 – 63l_{2})A = 8A² – 63l_{2}A

⇒ A^{5} = 8(4A – 7l_{2}) – 63A = -31A – 56l_{2} [using A² = 4A – 7l_{2}]

On comparing corresponding elements, we get

x = 3, y = -2 and z = -1

Question 33.

Solve \(\frac{dy}{dx}+\frac{1}{x}=\frac{e^y}{x}\).

Or

Solve x\(\frac{dy}{dx}\) + v – x + xy cot x = 0

Solution:

⇒ log(1 – e^{-y}) = log x + log C

⇒ log(1 – e^{-y}) = (log Cx) ⇒ 1 – e^{-y} = Cx

⇒ e^{-y} = 1 – Cx ⇒ -y = log(1 – Cx)

⇒ y + log(1 – Cx) = 0

Or

x\(\frac{dy}{dx}\) + y(1 + x cot x) = x dx

⇒ \(\frac{dy}{dx}\) + y(\(\frac{1}{x}\) + cot x) = 1 ….(i)

The given differential equation is a linear differential equation of the form \(\frac{dy}{dx}\) + Py = Q …(ii)

On comparing Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get

On putting values of IF and 0 in Eq. (iii), we get

It is the required solution.

Solution:

Let h be the height of ∆ABC. Then, h is the length of perpendicular from A(1, -1, 2) to the line

are (2λ – 2, λ + 1, 4λ).

Now, DR’s of AM are 2λ – 3, λ + 2 and 4λ – 2.

Since, AM ⊥ BC. therefore

2(2λ – 3) + 1(λ + 2) + 4(4λ – 2) = 0 [∵ DR’s of line BC are 2, 1, 4]

It is given that the length of BC is 5 units.

Question 35.

If (tan^{-1} x)^{y} + y^{cot x} = 1, then find dy/dx.

Solution:

Letu = (tan^{-1} x)^{y} and v = y^{cot x}

Then, given equation becomes u + v = 1

On differentiating both sides w.r.t. x, we get

Question 37.

Suppose a dealer in rural area wishes to purchase a number of sewing machines. He has some money to invest and has space for few items for storage. Let x denotes the number of electronic sewing machines and y denotes the number of manually operated sewing machines purchased by the dealer.

For the same, constraint related to investment is given by 3x + 2y ≤ 48 and objective function is Z = 22x + 18y and other constraints consists the following x + y ≤ 20, x, y ≥ 0.

Based on the above information, answer the following questions.

(i) Find Z_{(3, 4)}.

(ii) Evaluate Z_{(\(\frac{1}{2},\frac{1}{3}\))}.

(iii) Find the number of corner points of the feasible region.

Or

Find Z_{(max)}.

Solution:

∴ Number of corner points are 4.

The coordinates of the corner points A, B, C and 0 are (16, 0), (8, 12), (0, 20) and (0, 0), respectively.

Corner points |
Z = 22x + 18y |

(0, 0) | 0 (Minimum) |

(16, 0) | 352 |

(8, 12) | 392 (Maximum) |

(0, 20) | 360 |

Z is maximum at the point (8, 12).

∴ To get maximum profit 8 electronic sewing machines and 12 manually operated sewing machines should be purchased by the dealer. Hence,

Hence Z_{(max)} = 392

Question 38.
