15) Student get 3 and 3.5 in their class exam And 1.2 and 1.45 in final exam respectively. What might be the class marks of 3rd student who have got 0 marks in final exam?

1. 0.3 2. 0.5 3. 0.25 4. 0.1

ans: 0.25 Approach: take the diff and find out

16) A Bit problem to find A-(B Intersection C)

17) What is the unit of the following? (power*time) / (velocity*velocity)

1.mass 2.distance 3.velocity 4.speed

Ans: mass

Approach: power=work/time

hence numerator=(work*time)/time=work

work=Force*distance

Force=mass*acceleration

accelaration=distance/time^2

now numerator is (mass*distance^2) / (time^2)

denominator is (distance^2) / (time^2) since velocity=distance/time
