A. 2

B. 3

C. 4

D. 6

Explanation: 4002 = 400 x 400 = 160000

5. How many natural numbers lie between 92 and 102?

A. 17

B. 18

C. 19

D. 20

Explanation: The number of natural numbers between n2 and (n+1)2 is equal to 2n.

Here, n = 9

Therefore, 2n = 2 x 9 = 18

6. What is the sum of the first four odd natural numbers?

A. 16

B. 17

C. 18

D. 20

Explanation: The sum of the first odd natural numbers = 1+3+5+7 = 16

7. The value of 92 – 1 is equal to:

A. 81

B. 80

C. 79

D. None of the above

Explanation: 92-1 = 81 – 1 = 80

8. The sum of 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 +19 is:

A. 121

B. 120

C. 100

D. 110

Explanation: Sum of n odd numbers = 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 15 + 17 +19 =100

9. The square of 42 is:

A. 1764

B. 1664

C. 1564

D. 1504

Explanation: 422 = (40 + 2)2

= (40+2) (40+2)

= 40(40 + 2) + 2(40 + 2)

= 402 + 40 x 2 + 2 x 40 + 22

= 1600 + 80 + 80 + 4

= 1764

10. The Pythagorean triples whose smallest number is 8:

A. 8, 16 17

B. 8, 17, 18

C. 8, 15, 17

D. 8, 15, 16

Explanation: The general form of Pythagorean triplets is 2m, m2-1, m2+1

Given, 2m = 8

So, m = 4

m2 – 1= 42-1 = 16-1 = 15

m2+1=42+1= 16+1 = 17

11. Which of the following is a perfect square? 32, 66, 81, 101.

A. 32

B. 66
