**Question: **The monthly incomes of Aryan and Babban are in the ratio 3:4 and their monthly expenditures are in the ratio 5:7. If each saves Rs 15,000 per month, find their monthly incomes using matrix method.

**Solution:**

Suppose the monthly incomes of Aryan and Babban be 3*x* and 4*x* and their monthly expenditures are 5*y* and 7*y* respectively.

Since each saves Rs 15000 per month.

Monthly saving of Aryan: 3 *x* ‒ 5 *y* = 15,000 and monthly saving of Babban: 4 *x* ‒ 7 *y* = 15,000.

The above system of equations can be written in the matrix form as,

A X = B,

Where,

Therefore monthly income of Aryan = 3×30000= Rs.90,000.

Therefore monthly income of Babban = 4×30000= Rs.1,20,000.

**Question:** Prove that *f* (*x*) = | ln *x *| for* x *> 0 is not differentiable for all *x* > 0.

**Question:** A magazine seller has 500 subscribers and collects annual subscription charges of Rs.300 per subscriber. She proposes to increase the annual subscription charges and it is believed that for every increase of Re 1, one subscriber will discontinue. What increase will bring maximum income to her? Make appropriate assumptions in order to apply derivatives to reach the solution. Write one important role of magazines in our lives.

**Solution:**

Increase in subscription charges = Rs *x*, Decrease in the number of subscriber = *x*.

Obviously,* x* is a whole number.

Income is given by y = (500 – *x*) (300 + *x*). Let us assume for the time being

*y* is maximum when *x* = 100, which is a whole number. Therefore, she must increase the subscription charges by Rs 100 to have maximum income.

Magazines contribute, a great deal, to the development of our knowledge. Through valuable and subtle critical and commentary articles on culture, social civilization, new life style we learn a lot of interesting things. Through reading magazines, our mind and point of view are consolidated and enriched.

**Question:** A company has two plants to manufacture scooters. Plants I manufactures 70% of the scooters and Plant II manufactures 30%. At Plant I, 80% if the scooters are rated as of standard quality and at Plant II, 90% of the scooters are rated as of standard quality. A scooter is chosen at random and is found to be of standard quality. Find the probability that it has come from plant II?** **

**Solution:**

Suppose *E*_{1}, *E*_{2} and *A* be the following events such that,

*E*_{1} = Plant I is chosen, *E*_{2} = Plant II is chosen and *A* = scooter is of standard quality

**Question:** Find the length of foot of perpendicular from the point (7, 14, 5) to the plane 2 *x* + 4 *y* – *z *= 2. Also, find the image of the point P in the line.

**Solution:**

Suppose *M* be the foot of the perpendicular from *P* on the plane 2 *x* + 4 *y* – *z* = 2.

So, *PM *is the normal to the plane.

Its direction ratios are 2, 4, –1.

As *PM* passes through P (7, 14, 5). Therefore, its equation is

**Question:** A company manufactures gold rings & chains. The total number of rings and chains manufactured per day is exactly 24. It takes 1 hour to make a ring and 30 minutes to make a chain. The maximum number of hours available per day is 16. If the profit on a ring is Rs. 300 and that on a chain is Rs 190, find the number of rings and chains that should be manufactured per day, so as to earn the maximum profit. Make it as an L.P.P. and solve it graphically.

**Solution:**

Total number of rings and chain manufactures per day = 24

Time taken in manufacturing ring = 1 hour

Time taken in manufacturing chain = 30 minutes or 1/2 hour

Number of hours available per day = 16

Maximum profit on ring = Rs. 300

Maximum profit on chain = Rs. 190

Let gold rings manufacture per day = *x*, chains manufactured per day =* y*

The above LPP can be stated mathematically as given below,

Maximize, Z = 300* x* + 190 *y*

*Subject to*

**
**

At (16, 0): Z = 4800 + 0 = 4800

At (8, 16): Z = 2400 + 3040 = 5400 [Maximum]

At (8, 16): Z = 0 + 4560 = 4560

So, Z is maximum at (8, 16). Therefore, 8 gold chain and 16 chains must be manufactured per day to earn the maximum profit.

**Some sample questions from the Chemistry Guess Paper are given below:**

**Question: **NO_{2} group shows its effect only at ortho- and para- positions and not at meta- position. Explain

**Solution:**

The presence of nitro group at ortho- and para-positions withdraws the electron density from the benzene ring and thus facilitates the attack of the nucleophile on haloarene. The carbanion thus formed is stabilised through resonance. The negative charge appeared at ortho- and para- positions with respect to the halogen substituent is stabilised by –NO_{2} group while in case of meta-nitrobenzene, none of the resonating structures bear the negative charge on carbon atom bearing the –NO_{2} group. So, the presence of nitro group at meta- position does not stabilise the negative charge and no effect on reactivity is observed by the presence of –NO_{2 }group at meta position.

**Question:** Name the reagents which are used in the following conversions:

(*i*) Butan-2-one to butan-2-ol

(*ii*) Phenol to 2, 4, 6-tribromophenol

(*iii*) A primary alcohol to an aldehyde

**Solution:**

(*i*) NaBH_{4}

(*ii*) Br_{2}/H_{2}O

(*iii*) Pyridinium chlorochromate (C_{2}H_{5}NH^{+}CrO_{3}Cl^{‒})

**Question: **Define the following terms:

(*a*) Emulsion

(*b*) Tyndall Effect

(*c*) Lyophobic colloids

**Solution:**

(*a*) *Emulsion:* It is a colloidal dispersion in which both the dispersed phase and the dispersion medium are liquids.

(*b*) *Tyndall Effect:* It is defined as the scattering of light by the colloidal particles present in colloidal solution.

(*c*) *Autocatalysis:* It is reaction in which one of the product acts as a catalyst then, it is called autocatalysis.

**Question: **Give reasons for the following

(*i*) Nickel does not form low spin octahedral complexes.

(*ii*) The p-complexes are known for the transition metals only.

(*iii*) Co^{2+} is easily oxidised to Co^{3+} in the presence of a strong ligand.**Solution:**

(*i*) Nickel does not form low spin octahedral complexes because ‘Ni’ has electronic configuration 3*d*^{8} 4*s*^{2}, in which two inner *d*-orbitals are not available which are required to form *d*^{2}*sp*^{3}hybridization.

(*ii*) The p**-**complexes are known for the transition metals only because they have ‘sandwich’ structure in which the metal ion lies between two planar C_{5}H_{5} rings. The bonding involves overlap of p-electrons of the C_{5}H_{5 }rings with unfilled d-orbital of the metal. So, that all M–C bonds are identical for their stability.

(*iii*) Co^{2+} is easily oxidised to Co^{3+} in the presence of a strong ligand because in presence of strong ligand, the 3d electrons pair up leaving two orbitals empty to be involved in *d*^{2}*sp*^{3} hybridisation.
