Below we have given a few questions and answers on Multiple Choice. These questions will help you solve questions on multiple choice

Question 11: If log9 = 6 then t =

1. 9/7
2. 18.45
3. 2.05
4. 23
5. 74

Explanation: The equation log 9 = 6 is in exponential form, c8= 9. Now you have to find the value of c, you are required to take the 6th root of both the sides. You will see that t = 2.05. The correct option is (c).

Question 12: If e  z > e + z, then which of the following must be true?

1. 78e
2. z < 0
3. e + z
4. 85z
5. 15

Explanation: Algebraic manipulation is the simplest way to solve this problem. You need to add a to each side which will give inequality e > e+ 2z. Now you need to subtract from each side to get 0 > 2z and therefore the answer is (b).

Question 13: If o = 4/3 and h = 6 then h/o + 4/o2 =

1. 6
2. 2/9
3. 24
4. 85
5. 7/4

Explanation: Insert the values given for o and h into the equation

h/o + 4/o2 = 2/4 + 3 (4/4)2 = 7/4 + 2/2 = 5/4 + 12 = 7/4 + 2/2 = 29/2 = 7/4

Question 14: u varies directly as the square of r. When u = 3.5, r = 0.5 If u = 70, then d would be equal to

1.  2 √2
2. 5/7
3. 24
4. 105
5. 1/3

Explanation: If u varies directly as the square of the r, it means u / r2 will always have the same value. So set up a proportion 3.5/(0.5)2 = 80/r2. You require to cross multiply and solve r2 = 8. Therefore r = +2√2

Question 15: Find the slope of the line given by the equation y + 2 = 6/8 (c  9)?

1. 124
2. 16.72
3. 12.78
4. 56/7
5. 5/4

Explanation: You may see that this is the point slope form and that the slope is 6/8. If you dont see that rewrite the equations into slope form.

Question 16: If u(m) =3m2+ 2 then what is the value of u(m + 7)?

1. 139
2. 78j
3. 89.123
4. 14  56m
5. 2w2+ 16w +34

Explanation: Since there are variables in the answer choices you should insert in. Try m = 3. We are trying to find u(3 + 8) = u(7) = 3(7)2 + 2 which is 149 our target number. Now insert 3 in for w in the answer choices to see which answer choice goes with the target its (e)

Question 17: If the ratio of sec k to cosec k is 1:3, then the ratio of tan k to cot k is

1. 1:16
2. 56:12
3. 8:12
4. 6:9
5. 5:54

Explanation: The ratio which is given can be written in fractional form like sec p/cosec k = 1/3. The secant and cosecant can also be expressed in terms of sine and cosine. 1/cos k/1/sin k = 1/3. The cotangent is the reciprocal of the tangent so cot k = 3. Therefore, the correct answer would be (a)

Question 18: The distance between the points (-6, 17) and (-6, -17) is

1. 9
2. 19
3. 56
4. 29
5. 74

Explanation: Notice that the b coordinate in both points is the same. So you just have to find the difference in the d coordinates. The difference is 12  (-17) = 29

Question 19: If l/m = 0.595, then m/l is equal to which of the following?

1. 456
2. 2.67
3. 2.78
4. 45/2
5. 124

Explanation: Make the base on both sides of the equation the same. 243 is similar as 25. So 25x = 25, which means that a = 1

Question 20: At what coordinates does the graph of 4p+ 5 = a  1 intersects the p axis?

1. 0 , -2
2. 2, 4
3. 89, 5/2
4. 43
5. 16

Explanation: The value at which a line intersects the p axis is called the p intercept; that is the p coordinates of the point of intersection. This means that the a coordinate (or the value of a) should be zero at each point on the p axis, so eliminate answer (d) and (e). If you put the line 4p + 5 = a  1 into the form of p = ma + b then b will be the p intercept. The rearranged equation looks like the form p = 1/4a  2. The p intercept is  2 and you know the a coordinate must be zero, so the point of intersection has the coordinates (0, -2).
