(d) a = – 20, b = – 25

**Answers & Explanations**

1. Answer: (c) 5

**Explanation: **When p(y) is divided by y + 2, then the degree of remainder < deg of (y + 2)

2. Answer: (b) – 1

**Explanation: **\(p(x) = ax^3 + 4x^2 + 3x – 4\)

\(q(x) = x^3 – 4x + a\)

p(3) = q(3)

a = – 1

3. Answer: (c) a = 0, b = 2

**Explanation: **If – 2 is a zero

\(\Rightarrow\)p(- 2) = 0

\(\Rightarrow\) – 2a + b = 2

Also, p(2) = 4

2a + b = 2

\(\Rightarrow\)a = 0 and b = 2

4. Answer: (d) 1000

**Explanation: **\(p(x)\) is divided by \(x + 1\)

\(p(- 1) = (-1^{101}) + 1001 = 1000\)

5. Answer: (d) 5

**Explanation:** Since the highest degree variable in first bracket is \(x\) and in second bracket is \(x^4\) on multiplying \(x\) with \(x^4\).the highest power we obtain is 5.

6. Answer: (c) 2

**Explanation: **Let \(P(x) =x^4+x^3-2x^2+x+1\)

Remainder when divide by \(x-1\)

\(P(1) = 1+ 1-2+1+1=2\)

7. Answer: (d) 341

**Explanation: **\(a^3 + b^3= (a+b) (a^2+b^2-ab)=(a+b) \{(a+b)^2 -3ab\}\)

Now a+b=-(-11)/1=11

ab=30

So \(a^3+b^3=11( 121 -90)=341\)

8. Answer: (c) -1/2

**Explanation: **\(S(2)=4p+0+2=0 \Rightarrow p=-1/2\)

9. Answer: (c) c and a have the same sign

**Explanation: **Given that, the zeroes of the quadratic polynomial \(ax^2 + bx + c , c ≠ 0\) are equal

Value of discriminant (D) has to be zero

\(b^2– 4ac = 0\)

\(b^2 = 4ac\)

Since L.H.S. \((b^2)\) can never be negative

R.H.S. also can never be negative.

a and c must have same sign.

10. Answer: (d) (-2) , (-5)

**Explanation: **\(p(x)=x^2+7x+10\)

\(\Rightarrow p(x) = x^2 + 5x +2x +10 = x(x +5) + 2(x+5)=(x+2)(x+5)\)

So roots are (-2) , (-5)

11. Answer: (a) a > 0

12. Answer: (c) a cubic polynomial

13. Answer: (a) divisor × quotient + remainder

14. Answer: (b) a < 0

15. Answer: (b) – 1

**Explanation: **Given,

\(f(x) = x^2 + x + 1\)

α = a

β = b

c = c

α + β = – b/a

= – 1/1

= – 1 …….. Equ.(i)

αβ = c/a = 1 ….. Equ.(ii)

Dividing (i) from (ii)

We get,

– 1/1 = – 1

So,

1/α + 1/β = – 1

16. Answer: (a) 2

**Explanation:** **Given;**

f(x) = (k^{2} + 4) x^{2} + 13x + 4k,

One zero of the polynomial is reciprocal of the other,

Let a be the one zero,

∴ The other zero will be 1/a

**As we know that,**

Product of the zeros = c/a = 4k/k^{2} + 4

∴ 4k/k^{2 }+ 4 = 1

⇒ 4k = k^{2 }+ 4

⇒ k ^{2} + 4 – 4k = 0

⇒ (k – 2)^{2} = 0

⇒ k = 2

**So the value of k is 2**

17. Answer: (b) 4

**Explanation: ****Given,**

f(x) = 2x^{3 }– 3kx^{2} + 4x – 5

Sum of the zeros of the polynomial = 6

**Let x, y and z be the zeroes than,**

x + y + z = 6……Equation (i)

**So,**

x + y + z = – b/a

= – ( – 3k)/2

**From Eq. (i) we get,**

3k/2 = 6

k/2 = 6/3

**k = 2×2 = 4**

18. Answer: (d) – 12

**Explanation: **\(p(x) = x^2 + 7x – k\)

let α, s be the zeroes

α + s = – 7

αs = – k

\(α^2 + s^2 = 25\)

\((α^2 + s) – 2αs = 25\)

49 + 2k = 25

k = -12

19. Answer: (d) 1

**Explanation: **α s v = 6,

αs = 6(given)

\(\Rightarrow v = 6/6=1\)

20. Answer: (d) a = – 20, b = – 25

**Explanation: **Divide the given polynomial by \(2×2 – 5\) get the remainder as \((20 + a)x + (b + 25)\) which should be zero.
