Comparisons

#. 10 power 11, 10power 10 and 10 power 10

#. He has given a straight line with points x z y on that such that compare xz and xy here we will think that xy is greater

#He has given a triangle such that AB=BC=CA and he has drawn a straight line from A asuch that the line be AD now we have to compare BD and CD here we have say information is not sufficient since here he didn't give any information regarding that line.. so we cant say whether it dives the segment BC into two equal halves

#1/2*2/3*3/4*4/5 ½+2/3+3/4+4/5 This type of questions

#Some squareroot problems he has given can't remember here the questions r very easy but see that they should be answered very carefully.. I think u got this..he hs given 20 questions ans u have to answer it in 5min # given circimference of a circle is 4pie and for other circle ihe has given the diameter.he asked to compare the radius of both circles..
