Solutions

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. ∵ a² + b² + c² = 2(a – b – c) – 3
⇒ a² – 2a + 1 + b² + 2b + 1 + c² + 2c + 1 = 0
⇒ (a – 1)² + (b + 1)² + (c + 1)² = 0
It is only possible when—
(a – 1)² = 0, (b + 1)² = 0, (c + 1)² = 0
∴ a = 1, b = –1 & c = –1
∴ 4a – 3b + 5c = 4 × 1 – 3(–1) + 5(–1)
= 4 + 3 – 5 = 2

S11. Ans.(d)
Sol. ∵ a² + b² + c² = ab + bc + ca
∴ 2a² + 2b² + 2c² = 2ab + 2bc + 2ca
or, a² – 2ab + b² + b² – 2bc + c² + c² – 2ac + a² = 0
or, (a – b)² + (b – c)² + (c – a)² = 0
⇒ (a – b)² = 0 ⇒ a = b
⇒ (b – c)² = 0 ⇒ b = c
∴ a = b = c
∴(a+c)/b=(b+b)/b=2

S12. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let 5 sin θ – 3 cos θ = x …(i)
from question,
3 sin θ + 5 cos θ = 5 …(ii)
By squaring and adding (i) & (ii)
25 + 9 = x² + 25
⇒ x = ±3

S13. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let height = h
∴ 360 = 2 × 1/2 × 12 × 5 + [5 × h + 12 × h + 13× h]
∴ 360 = 60 + 30h
∴ h = 10 cm
∴ height = 10 cm
