(d)495
Answers and Solution:
1. (c)
Required number = (LCM. of 14,15,21,32 and 60) + 11
 = 3360 + 11 = 3371

2. (c)
Let, numbers are 4x and 4y
so, 4x + 4y = 36
or, x + y = 9
so (x,y) = (1,8),(2,7),(4,5) so total 3 pairs are possible

3. (a)
4. (b)
Let, numbers are 29a and 29b where a and b are co-prime numbers.
From the question , 29ab = 4147, ab = 143 = 13*11
so, the sum of numbers = 29a + 29b = 29(a+b) = 29(13+11)
= 29 * 24 = 696

5. (c)
6. (a)
7. (d)
8. (a)
Let, H.C.F = x so, L.C.M = 45x
from the question  x + 45x = 1150
or, x = 25 = G.C.F and 45x = 1125 = L.C.M
for two numbers, (G.C.F * L.C.M) = (product of numbers)
so 25 * 1125 = 125 * second number
so second number = 225

9. (b)
10. (b)
