**Importance of Previous Years’ Paper:**

Previous years’ question papers help aspirants in understanding exam pattern, question format, important topics and assessing preparation. It has also been seen that sometimes questions are repeated in WBJEE Exam. So, this paper will certainly boost your confidence.

**About WBJEE Exam**

WBJEE is a common entrance examinations held at state level for admission to the undergraduate level engineering and medical courses in the state of West Bengal. The Mathematics section of WBJEE 2014 engineering entrance exam consists of 80 questions.

**61.** **We define a binary relation on the set of all 3 × 3 real matrices as A B if and only if there exist invertible matrices P and Q such that B = PAQ ^{–1}. The binary relation is**

(A) Neither reflexive nor symmetric

(B) Reflexive and symmetric but not transitive

(C) Symmetric and transitive but not reflexive

(D) An equivalence relation

**Ans :** (D)

**Hints :**

For Reflexive,

A.I = IA,

A = AAA^{-1}

A = AI = A

so reflexive.

For Symmetric,

B = PAQ^{–1},

BQ = PA,

P ^{-1}BQ = A or A = (P^{–1}) B. (Q^{–1})^{–1},so symmetric.

For Transitive,

B = PAQ^{–1},

C = PBQ ^{1}=P.PAQ^{–1}.Q^{–1}= (PP)A(QQ)^{–1}, so transitive

**63. For any two real numbers θ and ϕ, we define θRφ if and only if sec ^{2}θ – tan^{2}φ = 1. The relation R is**

(A) Reflexive but not transitive

(B) Symmetric but not reflexive

(C) Both reflexive and symmetric but not transitive

(D) An equivalence relation

**Ans : (D)**

**Hints:**

For reflexive, θ = φ

so sec^{2}θ – tan^{2}θ = 1, Hence Reflexive

For symmetric, sec^{2}θ – tan^{2}φ = 1

So, (1 + tan^{2}θ) – (sec^{2}φ – 1) = 1 so, sec^{2}φ – tan^{2}θ = 1. Hence symmetric

For Transitive,

Let sec^{2}θ – tan^{2}φ = 1 and sec^{2}φ – tan^{2}γ = 1

so, 1 + tan^{2}φ – tan^{2}γ = 1 or,

sec^{2}θ – tan^{2}γ = 1.

Hence it is transitive

**64. A particle starting from a point A and moving with a positive constant acceleration along a straight line reaches another point B in time T. Suppose that the initial velocity of the particle is u > 0 and P is the midpoint of the line AB. If the velocity of the particle at point P is v _{1} and if the velocity at time T/2 is v_{2} , then**

(A) v1> v2

(B) v1> v2

(C) v1< v2

(D) v1=1/2 v2

**Ans: (B)**

Since the particle is moving with a positive constant acceleration hence it’s velocity should increase, when it moves from point A to B. Also, P is the mid-point of line AB.

**WBJEE 2014 Solved Mathematics Question Paper – Part 12**

So the time taken to travel AP is more than that of the time taken for PB. So the instant T/2 is before P. Hence, v_{1} > v_{2} since velocity increases from A to B.

If the velocity of the particle at point P is v_{1} and if the velocity at time is v_{2} , then
