Solution:

(c) It is given that

Question 3.

If A and B are two independent events, then P( A ∩ \(\overline{\mathrm{B}}\)) is equal to

Solution:

(a) We have, P(A ∩ \(\overline{\mathrm{B}}\)) = P(A) – P(\(\overline{\mathrm{B}}\))

[∵ A and 6 are independent events]⇒ P(A ∩ \(\overline{\mathrm{B}}\)) = P(A) . [1 – P(B)] = P(A) – P(A) . P(B)

Question 4.

\(\int_0^\pi\frac{xdx}{1+sinx}\)

(a) π

(b) 2π

(c) 3π

(d) π/2

Solution:

Question 5.

If I be any interval disjoint from [-1, 1], then the function f given by f(x) = x + \(\frac{1}{x}\) is

(a) strictly decreasing on I

(b) strictly increasing on I

(c) decreasing on I

(d) Only (a) and (c) are true

Solution:

(b) Given, f(x) = x + \(\frac{1}{x}\) ⇒ f'(x) = 1 – \(\frac{1}{x^2}=\frac{x^2+1}{x^2}\)

[on differentiating w.r.t. x we get]If x< -1, then f'(x) > 0. If x > 1, then f'(x) > 0

∴ f(x) is strictly increasing on interval / disjoint from [-1, 1]

Question 6.

Direction cosines of the vector

Solution:

Question 7.

The least value of a, such the function f given by f(x) = x² + ax + 1 is strictly increasing on (1, 2) is

(a) -1

(b) -2

(c) 0

(d) 1

Solution:

(b) We find f'(x), then for 1 < x < 2, put f'(x) > 0 and find the required least value of a.

Given, f(x) = x² + ax + 1 ⇒ f'(x) = 2x + a

In interval (1, 2), 1 < x < 2 ⇒ 2 < 2x < 4

⇒ (2 + a) < (2x + a) < (4 + a) Since, f(x) is strictly increasing function, then (2 + a) > 0 [for this f'(x) > 0 and (2x + a) > (2 + a)]∴ (2 + a) > 0

⇒ a > -2

Hence, the least value of a = – 2.

Question 8.

If \((\hat{i}+3\hat{j}+9\hat{k})\times(3\hat{i}-\lambda\hat{j}+\mu\hat{k})\) = 0, then λ + µ is equal to

(a) 10

(b) 18

(c) 0

(d) 1

Solution:

3µ + 9λ = 0, – µ + 27 = 0 and -λ – 9 = 0

⇒ µ = 27 and λ = -9

Also, the values of µ and λ satisfy the equation 3µ + 9λ = 0.

∴ λ + µ = -9 + 27 = 18

Question 9.

(a) [28](b) [24](c) 28

(d) 24

Solution:

Question 14.

to

(a) 1

(b) 2

(c) -3

(d) -5

Solution:

⇒ x + y = 2 and x – y = 4

Since (x + y)² – (x – y)² = 4xy

∴ 2² – 4² = 4xy

⇒ 4xy = 4 – 16 = -12 ⇒ xy = -3

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) Scalar matrix

an identity matrix when k = 1.

Reason (R) Every identity matrix is not a scalar matrix.

Solution:

matrix, when k =1.

But every identity matrix is clearly a scalar matrix as identity matrix is a diagonal matrix in which all the diagonal elements are equal.

Hence, Assertion is true but Reason is false.

Question 20.

Assertion (A) The relation R on the set N × N defined by (a, b)R(c, d) ⇔ a + d = b + c, for all (a, b), (c, d) ∈ N × N is an equivalence relation.

Reason (R) Any relation is an equivalence relation, if it is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.

Solution:

(a) Let (a, b) be an arbitrary element of N × N.

Then, (a, b) ∈ N × N

⇒ a, b ∈ N

⇒ a + b = b + a [by commutative of addition in N]⇒ (a, b)R(a, b)

⇒ R is reflexive on N × N.

Let (a, b), (c, d) ∈ N × N be such that (a, b) R(c, d).

⇒ a + d = b + c

⇒ b + c = a + d

⇒ c + b = d + a

⇒ (c, d)R(a, b)

⇒ R is symmetric on N × N.

Now, let (a, b), (c, d), (e, f) ∈ N × N, such that (a, b)R(c,d) and (c, d)R(e, f).

∵ (a, b)R(c,d)

⇒ a + d= to + c …(i)

∵ (c, d)R(e, f)

⇒ c + f = d + e …(ii)

On adding Eqs. (i) and (ii), we get (a + d) + (c + f) = (b + c) + (d + e)

⇒ a + f = b + e

⇒ (a, b)R(e, f)

Thus, (a, b) R(c, d) and (c, d) R(e, f).

⇒ (a, b)R(e, f)for all (a, b),(c, d), (e, f) ∈ N × N

⇒ R is transitive on N × N.

⇒ R is an equivalence relation on N × N

Question 21.

If AB = BA for any two square matrices, then prove by mathematical induction that (AB)^{n} = A^{n}B^{n}.

Or

Solution:

Let P(n): (AB)^{n} = A^{n}B^{n}

∴ P(1) : (AB)¹ = A¹B¹ ⇒ AB = AB

So, P(1) is true.

Now, P(k): (AB)^{k} = A^{k}B^{k}, k ∈ N

So, P(k) is true, whenever P(k +1) is true.

∴ P(AB)^{k+1} = A^{k+1}B^{k+1}

⇒ A^{k}B^{k}.BA = A^{k}B^{k+1} ⇒ A^{k} . A . B^{k+1} = A^{k+1}B^{k+1}

⇒ (A.B)^{k+1} = A^{k+1}B^{k+1}

So, P(k + 1)is true for all n ∈ N, whenever P(/r)is true. By mathematical induction, (AB) = A^{n}B^{n}

is true for all a ∈ N. Hence proved.

Or

Hence proved.

Question 22.

Given curves are

Eq. (ii) represents the line parallel to V-axis and passes through the point (- 3, 0).

Eq. (iii) represents the line parallel to Y-axis and passes through the point (3, 0).

Eq. (iv) represents X-axis.

Or

If |\(\vec{a}\)| = 10, |\(\vec{b}\)| = 2 and \(\vec{a}.\vec{b}\) = 12, then find the value of |\(\vec{a}\times\vec{b}\)|.

Solution:

Let \(\vec{c}=\hat{a}+\hat{b}\) = a + b. Then, according to given condition c is a unit vector i. e.|\(\vec{c}\)| = 1 …(i)

To show |\(\hat{a}-\hat{b}\)| = √3

Question 29.

Find ∫\(\frac{x^2+x+1}{(x+1)^2(x+2)}\)dx.

Or

Evaluate ∫\(\frac{sin(x-\alpha)}{sin(x+\alpha)}\)dx

Solution:

⇒ x² + x + 1 = A(x + 1)(x + 2) + B (x + 2) + C(x + 1)²

⇒ x² + x + 1 = A(x² + 3x + 2) + B(x + 2 ) + C(x² + 2x + 1)

⇒ x² + x + 1 = (A + C)x² + (3A + B + 2C)x + (2A + 2B + C)

On comparing the coefficients of like powers from both sides, we get

A + C = 1

3A + B + 2C = 1 and 2A + 2B + C = 1

On solving these equations, we get

A = -2, B = 1 and C = 3

From Eq.(i), we get

Solution:

Given differential equation is

On comparing the coefficients of x², x and constant terms from both sides, we get

A + B = 2, B + C = 1

and A + C = 0 ⇒ A = -C

On solving above equations, we get

A = \(\frac{1}{2}\), B = \(\frac{3}{2}\) and C = – \(\frac{1}{2}\)

On substituting the values of A, B and C in Eq. (ii), we get

which is the required solution.

Question 33.

Solution:

Question 34.

Determine graphically the minimum value of the objective function

Z = – 50x + 20y, subject to constraints are

2x – y ≥ – 5, 3x + y ≥ 3, 2 x – 3y ≤ 12 and x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0.

Or

Find graphically, the maximum value of Z = 2x + 5y, subject to constraints given below

2 x + 4y ≤ 8, 3x + y ≤ 6,

x + y ≤ 4, x > 0, y≥0.

Solution:

Given objective function is

Minimise Z = – 50x + 20y

Subject to constraints, 2x – y ≥ – 5 …..(i)

3x + y ≥ 3 …..(ii)

2x – 3y ≤ 12 …..(iii)

and x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0 …..(iv)

Table for line 2x – y = -5 is

So, the line passes through the points (\(\frac{-5}{2}\), 0) and (0, 5).

On putting (0, 0) in the inequality 2x – y ≥ -5, we get

0 – 0 ≥ -5

⇒ 0 ≥ -5, which is true.

So, the half plane is towards the origin.

Table for line 3x + y = 3 is

So, the line passes through the points (0, 3)and(1, 0). On putting (0, 0) in the inequality 3x + y ≥ 3, we get

0 + 0 ≥ 3

⇒ 0 ≥ 3, which is not true.

So, the half plane is away from the origin.

Table for line 2x – 3y = 12 is

So, the line passes through the points (0, -4) and (6, 0).

On putting (0, 0)in the inequality 2x – 3y ≤ 12, we get

0 – 0 ≤ 12

⇒ 0 ≤ 12, which is true.

So, the half plane is towards the origin.

Also, x ≥ 0 and y ≥ 0, so the region lies in the 1st quadrant.

On drawing the graph of each linear equation, we get the following graph. In first quadrant, these equations has no intersection point.

which gives the feasible region and it is unbounded. The corner points of feasible region are A(0, 5), B(0, 3), C(1, 0)and D(6, 0).

The value of Z at corner points are given below

Corner points |
Z = -50x + 20y |

A(0, 5) | Z = – 50(0)+ 20(5) = 100 |

B(0, 3) | Z = – 50(0) + 20(3) = 60 |

C(1, 0) | Z = – 50(1) + 20(0) = – 50 |

D( 6, 0) | Z = – 50(6) + 20(0) = – 300 |

Here, feasible region is unbounded so the minimum and maximum value may or may not exist.

Now, we draw a dotted line of inequation

– 50x + 20y < -300 or – 5x + 2y < -30

Here, we see that half plane determined by – 5x + 2y < – 30 has a point in common with the feasible region.

Hence, no minimum value exists.

Or

We have the following LPR,

Maximise, Z = 2x + 5y

Subject to constraints,

2x + 4y < 8 or x + 2y ≤ 4

3x + y ≤ 6

x + y ≤ 4

and x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

Now, considering the inequations as equations, we

get x + 2y = 4 …(i)

3x + y = 6 …(ii)

and x + y = 4 …(iii)

Table for line x + 2y = 4 is

So, the line passes through (4, 0) and (0, 2).

On putting (0, 0) in the inequality x + 2y ≤ 4, we get

0 + 0 ≤ 4 [which is true]So, the half plane is towards the origin.

Table for line 3x + y = 6 is

So, the line passes through (2, 0) and (0, 6).

On putting (0, 0) in the inequality 3x + y ≤ 6, we get

0 + 0 ≤ 6 [which is true]So, the half plane is towards the origin.

Table for line x + y = 4 is

On putting (0, 0) in the inequality x + y ≤ 4, we get

0 + 0 ≤ 4 [which is true]So, the half plane is towards the origin.

Also, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0 , so the region lies in the 1st quadrant.

The graphical representation of the above system of inequations is given below

Clearly, the feasible region is OABCO.

The intersection point of lines (i) and (ii) is B(\(\frac{8}{5}\), \(\frac{6}{5}\))

Thus, the corner points are

O(0, 0), A(2, 0), B(\(\frac{8}{5}\), \(\frac{6}{5}\)), C(0, 2).

The values of Z at corner points are as follows

Hence, the maximum value of Z is 10.

Question 35.

If y = (log x)^{x} + x^{log x}, then find \(\frac{dy}{dx}\).

Solution:

We have, y = (logx)^{x}+ x^{log x}

Let u = (log x)^{x} and v = x^{log x}

Then, y = u + v

⇒ \(\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{du}{dx}+\frac{dy}{dv}\) …….(i)

Consider, u = (logx)^{x}

On taking log both sides, we get

log u = log(logx)^{x} = xlog(log x)

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

Now, v = x^{log x}

On taking log both sides, we get

log v = log(x^{log x})

= (log x) (log x)

= (log x)²

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

e.g. Every polynomial, constant functions are both continuous as well as differentiable and inverse trigonometric functions are continuous and ‘ differentiable in their domain etc.

Based on the above information, answer the following questions,

(i) Write the interval in which the function f(x) = cos^{-1} x is always continuous.

(iii) Show that the function f(x) = |x – 2|, x ∈ R, is continuous at x = 2.

Or Show that the function f(x) = |cos 2x| is continuous at x = \(\frac{\pi}{4}\)

(i) cos^{-1} x is always continuous in its domain, x ∈ [-1, 1].

Question 37.

In a classroom, a teacher teaches a topic ‘Relation on a set’, which is defined below.

A relation Ron a set A is said to be an equivalence relation on A iff it is

I. Reflexive i.e. aRa or (a, a) ∈ R,∀ a ∈ A.

II. Symmetric i.e. aRb ⇒ bRa

or(a, b) ∈ R ⇒ (b, a) ∈ R, where a,b ∈ A.

III. Transitive i.e. if aRb and bRc, then aRc

or (a, b) ∈ R and (b, c) ∈ R

⇒ (a, c) ∈ R, where a, b, c ∈ A.

Based on the above information, answer the following questions.

(i) If the relation R = {(1, 1), (1, 2), (1, 3), (2, 2), (2, 3), (3, 1), (3, 2), (3, 3)} defined on the set A = {1, 2, 3}, then show that R is reflexive but neither symmetric nor transitive.

(ii) If the relation R = {(1, 2), (2, 1), (1, 3), (3, 1)} defined on the set A = {1, 2, 3}, then show that R is symmetric but neither reflexive nor transitive.

(iii) If the relation R on the set N of all natural numbers defined as R = {(x, y): y – x + 5 and x < 4}, then show that R is neither reflexive, nor symmetric nor transitive.

Or

The relation R in the set Z of integers given by R = {(a, b): 2 divides (a – b)}, show that R is an equivalence relation.

Solution:

(i) ∵ (1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3) ∈ R

⇒ R is reflexive on A.

Now, (1, 2) efl but (2, 1) ∈ R

⇒ R is not symmetric on A.

Now, (2, 3) eRand (3, 1) eRbut (2, 1) ∈ R

⇒ R is not transitive on A.

(ii) ∵ j(d, .1) (2, 2) and (3, 3) are not in R.

⇒ R is not reflexive on A.

∵ (1, 2) ∈ R ⇒ (2, 1) eR and (1, 3) ∈ R.

⇒ (3, 1) ∈ R fl is symmetric.

∵ (1, 2) ∈ R and (2, 1) ∈ R but (1, 1) ∉ R

∴ R is not transitive on A.

(iii) Given, R={(x, y):y = x + 5 and x < 4}, where x, y ∈ N

R = {( 1,6), (2, 7), (3, 8)}

∵ (1, 1), (2, 2) and (3, 3) are not in R.

So, R is not reflexive.

Now, (1, 6) ∈ R but (6, 1) ∉ R

⇒ R is not symmetric.

Now, (1, 6) ∈ R and there is no order pair in R which has 6 as the first element.

Similar is the case for (2, 7) and (3, 8).

⇒ R is not transitive.

Or

Given, R={(a,b) : 2 divides(a – d)}

and Z = Set of integers

Reflexive Let aeZ be any arbitrary element.

Now, if (a, a) ∈ R, then 2 divides a-a, which is true.

So, R is reflexive.

Symmetric Let a.b ∈ Z, such that (a, b) ∈ R.

2 divides (a – b).

⇒ 2 divides [-(a – b)]⇒ 2 divides (b – a) ⇒ (b, a) ∈ R

So, R is symmetric.

Transitive Let a,b,c ∈ Z, such that (a, b) ∈ R and (b.c) ∈ R.

⇒ a – b and b – c both are divisible by 2.

⇒ a-b + to -c is divisible by 2.

⇒ (a – c) is divisible by 2 ⇒ (a, c) ∈ R

So, R is transitive.

Thus, R is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.

Hence, R is an equivalence relation.

The probability of solving the question by Ravi, Mohit and Sonia are 30%, 25% and 45%, respectively. The probability of making error by Ravi, Mohit and Sonia are 1%, 1.2% and 2%, respectively.

Based on the above information, answer the following questions.

(i) Find the total probability of committing an error in solving the question.

Solution:

Let

A = The event that question has some error

E_{1} = The event that question is solved by Ravi

E_{2} = The event that question is solved by Mohit

E_{3} = The event that question is solved by Sonia

Then, we have

(i) Required probability = P(A)
