This is also a 50-51 level question and is related to the common mistake type 4(A) When 25 integers are there such that their average (arithmetic mean) is 100, is their median equal to 100? 1) They are consecutive 2) The average (arithmetic mean) of the greatest number and the smallest number of them is 100

There are 2 variables in the question. Hence, C could be the answer. However, since this is an integer question, we have to apply the common mistake type 4(A). Then, we can see that A is the correct answer.

Doesn't option 'B' says numbers are consecutive !

can someone advise pls

There are some difficult PS questions that appear as 50-51 level questions. In the x- y plane, there are 4 points (0,0), (0,4), (6,4), and (6,0). If these 4 points makes a rectangle, what is the probability that x+y<4? A. 1/2 B. 1/3 C. 1/4 D. 1/5 E. 2/5 Answer: B If we draw conditions on coordinates, the correct answer is B.

Please elaborate how to solve above question

As always, questions combined with the mistake type 3 and 4 are given. Let's have a look at the example below. This is a very recent question, which also belongs to the mistake type 4(B). This question is on the level of score 50-51. You should be able to tackle a question like this. In addition, you should be aware of relation between approach method to variables and the mistake types. Is 7-digit positive integer a,bcd,150 divisible by 6? 1) a,bcd,000 is divisible by 6. 2) a+b+c+d is divisible by 3.

Both C and D can be answers for this type of questions. This is a common mistake type 4(B) question which is in the level of 50-51.

Please be careful on Common mistake type 4(B) questions. When p, s, and t are positive integers, is p a factor of st? 1) p is a factor of s 2) t is a multiple of p

There are 2 variabes in the original condition. Hence, there is a high chance that C is the correct answer. Using con 1) & 2), C is the correct answer. However, since this is one of key questions, we can apply the common mistake type 4(B). Then, we get 1)=2). The answer is always yes and the condition is sufficient. Hence, the correct answer is D.

If x, y are positive integers, what is the remainder when (2^8x+6)+y is divided by 5? 1) x=3 2) y=1

This is a general common mistake type 4(A) question. There are 3 variables in the original condition. Hence, there is a high chance that E is the correct answer. Using 1) & 2), we get 2^30+1=~5. The remainder is 0. Hence, the correct answer is unique and the condition is sufficient – C is the correct answer. However, since it is one of key questions, we can apply the common mistake type 4(A). From (2^8x+6), we can see that the units digit is always 4. Hence, we only have to know 4. Thus, the correct answer is B.

There are many difficult PS questions nowadays. Which of the following is equal to (a^2)/|a|? (a is not zero) I. |a| II. (|a|^2)/a III. |((a/|a|)^2)a| A. I only B. II only C. III only D. I & III only E. II & III only

Since, (a^2)/|a|=(|a|^2)/|a|=|a|. The correct answer is D.
_________________

This is a consecutive integers question. If x, y, z are integers, is xyz a multiple of 3? 1) x+y+z is a multiple of 3 2) x, y, and z are consecutive

There is 1 variable in the original condition. Hence, there is a high chance that D is the correct answer. In case of con 1), we have (x,y,z)=(1,2,4) yes, (x,y,z)=(2,2,2) n. Hence, the condition is not sufficient. In case of condition 2), if x, y, z are consecutive integers, they always have 3. Hence, the answer is yes and the condition is sufficient. Thus, the correct answer is B.

When m and are positive integers, is 2m+2n divisible by 5? 1) m=n+2 2) n=3

There are 2 variables (a and b) in the original condition. There is a high chance that C is the correct answer. Using con 1) and 2), the correct answer is C. However, since this is one of key questions, if we apply common mistake type 4(A), using con 1), we get 2^m+2^n=(2^n+2)+2^n=(2^2+1)2^n=5(2^n). It is always divisibly by 5. The answer is yes and the condition is sufficient. Hence, the correct answer is A.

(ex 7) *(integer) What is the greatest common divisor of positive integers n and m? 1) n=1 2) m=n+1 There are 2 variables in the original condition (m, n). In order to match the number of variables and the number of equations, we need 2 equations. Hence, there is a high chance that C is the correct answer. Using 1) and 2), C is the correct answer. However, we have to utilize the common mistake type 4(B) since it is an integer question. The correct answer is D.

MathRevolution Could pls elaborate this que how the ans is D
