Q543. 

1)  34  2)  31 
3)  36  4)  32 
5)  None of these 
Answer : 36
Explanation :
Explanation :
Let the batsman’s average runs up to 12th innings was x.
Total run = 12 x.
Now total run up to 13th innings = (12 x + 96)
According to equation = (12 x + 96)/13 = x + 5 or x = 31.
So, after 13th innings average will be 31 + 5 = 36.
Shortcut Method :
96  (135) + 5 = 36

Q549. 

1)  1  2)  2 
3)  3  4)  4 
5)  None of these 
Answer : 2
Explanation :
Explanation :
Let the numbers 13a and 13b.
Then, 13a x 13b = 2028
ab = 12.
Now, the coprimes with product 12 are (1, 12) and (3, 4).
So, the required numbers are (13 x 1, 13 x 12) and
(13 x 3, 13 x 4).
Clearly, there are 2 such pairs.

1)  20  2)  23 
3)  169  4)  400 
5)  None of these 
Answer : 23
Explanation :
Explanation :
Let the numbers be x and y.
Then, xy = 120 and x^{2} + y^{2 }= 289.
(x + y)^{2} = x^{2} + y^{2 }+ 2xy = 289 + (2 x 120) = 529
x + y = 23.
