### 70th question set - 10 problems for SSC CGL exam: 6th on topic Fractions and surds - time 15 mins

#### Problem 1.

The product of two fractions is $\displaystyle\frac{14}{15}$ and their quotient is, $\displaystyle\frac{35}{24}$. The larger of the two fractions is,

- $\displaystyle\frac{7}{4}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{7}{6}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{7}{3}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{4}{5}$

#### Problem 2.

$\displaystyle\frac{4}{5}$, $\displaystyle\frac{7}{8}$, $\displaystyle\frac{6}{7}$, $\displaystyle\frac{5}{6}$ in ascending order is,

- $\displaystyle\frac{4}{5}$, $\displaystyle\frac{7}{8}$, $\displaystyle\frac{6}{7}$, $\displaystyle\frac{5}{6}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{7}{8}$, $\displaystyle\frac{6}{7}$, $\displaystyle\frac{5}{6}$, $\displaystyle\frac{4}{5}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{4}{5}$, $\displaystyle\frac{5}{6}$, $\displaystyle\frac{6}{7}$, $\displaystyle\frac{7}{8}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{5}{6}$, $\displaystyle\frac{6}{7}$, $\displaystyle\frac{7}{8}$, $\displaystyle\frac{4}{5}$

#### Problem 3.

A fraction having denominator 30 and lying between $\displaystyle\frac{5}{8}$ and $\displaystyle\frac{7}{11}$ is,

- $\displaystyle\frac{21}{30}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{18}{30}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{19}{30}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{20}{30}$

#### Problem** 4.**

If the difference between the reciprocal of a positive proper fraction and the fraction itself be $\displaystyle\frac{9}{20}$, then the fraction is,

- $\displaystyle\frac{5}{4}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{4}{5}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{3}{5}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{3}{10}$

#### Problem** 5.**

The sum of three fractions is, $2\displaystyle\frac{11}{24}$. On dividing the largest fraction by the smallest result obtained is $\displaystyle\frac{7}{6}$ which is greater than the middle fraction by $\displaystyle\frac{1}{3}$. The smallest fraction then is,

- $\displaystyle\frac{5}{8}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{3}{7}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{3}{4}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{5}{6}$

#### Problem 6.

The value of $\left[\displaystyle\frac{\sqrt{3}+1}{\sqrt{3}-1}+\displaystyle\frac{\sqrt{2}+1}{\sqrt{2}-1}+\displaystyle\frac{\sqrt{3}-1}{\sqrt{3}+1}+\displaystyle\frac{\sqrt{2}-1}{\sqrt{2}+1}\right]$ is,

- $10$
- $12$
- $18$
- $14$

#### Problem** 7.**

The value of $\displaystyle\frac{1}{\sqrt{12-\sqrt{140}}}-\displaystyle\frac{1}{\sqrt{8-\sqrt{60}}}-\displaystyle\frac{2}{\sqrt{10+\sqrt{84}}}$ is

- 3
- 0
- 1
- 2

#### Problem** 8.**

If $\displaystyle\frac{4+3\sqrt{3}}{\sqrt{7+4\sqrt{3}}}=A + \sqrt{B}$ then $B-A$ is,

- $-13$
- $3\sqrt{3}-7$
- $13$
- $\sqrt{13}$

#### Problem** 9.**

The value of $\left(3+\displaystyle\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}}+\displaystyle\frac{1}{3+\sqrt{3}}+\displaystyle\frac{1}{\sqrt{3}-3}\right)$ is,

- $1$
- $3$
- $3-\sqrt{3}$
- $3+\sqrt{3}$

#### Problem** 10.**

If $\displaystyle\frac{\sqrt{a+2b}+\sqrt{a-2b}}{\sqrt{a+2b}-\sqrt{a-2b}}=\sqrt{3}$ then $a:b$ is,

- $4:\sqrt{3}$
- $\sqrt{3}:2$
- $\sqrt{3}:4$
- $2:\sqrt{3}$
