A few sample questions from the CBSE Class 10 Mathematics Solved Question Paper 2016, are given below:

Q. A card is drawn at random from a well shuffled pack of 52 playing cards. Find the probability of getting neither a red card nor a queen.

Sol.

There are 26 red cards in a deck of 52 cards

Also there are 4 queens in a deck of 52 cards, 2 queens are black and 2 are red.

Now, numbers of card which are neither red nor queen are = 52 ‒ (26 + 2) = 24.

&there4; Probability of getting neither a red card nor a queen is= 24/52 = 6/13

Q. There are hundred cards in a bag on which numbers from 1 to 100 are written. A card is taken out from the bag at random. Find the probability that the number on the selected card

(i) is divisible by 9 and is a perfect square.

(ii) is a prime number greater than 80.

Sol.

(i) Total cards =100

The numbers those are divisible by 9 and are perfect squares are 9, 36, 81.

Therefore probability that the number on the selected card is divisible by 9 and is a perfect square is 3/100.

(ii) Total cards =100

The prime numbers greater than 80 are, 83, 89, 97

Therefore probability that the number on the selected card is a prime number greater than 100 is 3/100.

Q. Three consecutive natural numbers are such that the square of the middle number exceeds the difference of the squares of other two by 60.Find the numbers.

Sol.

Let x, x + 1 and x + 2 be the three consecutive numbers,

Then according to the question,

The root ‒7 will be rejected, as natural number cannot be negative.

Therefore, the numbers are 9, 10, 11.
