MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
STATEMENT - 1 : For every natural number $$n \ge 2,$$ $$${1 \over {\sqrt 1 }} + {1 \over {\sqrt 2 }} + ........ + {1 \over {\sqrt n }} > \sqrt n .$$$

STATEMENT - 2 : For every natural number $$n \ge 2,$$, $$$\sqrt {n\left( {n + 1} \right)} < n + 1.$$$

A
Statement - 1 is false, Statement - 2 is true
B
Statement - 1 is true, Statement - 2 is true; Statement - 2 is a correct explanation for statement - 1
C
Statement - 1 is true, Statement - 2 is true; Statement - 2 is not a correct explanation for Statement - 1
D
Statement - 1 is true, Statement - 2 is false

Explanation

Statements $$2$$ is $$\sqrt {n\left( {n + 1} \right)} < n + 1,n \ge 2$$

$$ \Rightarrow \sqrt n < \sqrt {n + 1} ,n \ge 2$$ which is true

$$ \Rightarrow \sqrt 2 < \sqrt 3 < \sqrt 4 < \sqrt 5 < - - - - - - \sqrt n $$

Now $$\sqrt 2 < \sqrt n \Rightarrow {1 \over {\sqrt 2 }} > {1 \over {\sqrt n }}$$

$$\sqrt 3 < \sqrt n \Rightarrow {1 \over {\sqrt 3 }} > {1 \over {\sqrt n }};$$

$$\sqrt n \le \sqrt n \Rightarrow {1 \over {\sqrt n }} \ge {1 \over {\sqrt n }}$$

Also $${1 \over {\sqrt 1 }} > {1 \over {\sqrt n }}$$

$$\therefore$$ Adding all, we get

$${1 \over {\sqrt 1 }} + {1 \over {\sqrt 2 }} + {1 \over {\sqrt 3 }} + ....... + {1 \over n} > {n \over {\sqrt n }} = \sqrt n $$

Hence both the statements are correct and statement $$2$$ is a correct explanation of statement $$-1.$$

AIEEE 2007

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
If the difference between the roots of the equation $${x^2} + ax + 1 = 0$$ is less than $$\sqrt 5 ,$$ then the set of possible values of $$a$$ is
A
$$\left( {3,\infty } \right)$$
B
$$\left( { - \infty , - 3} \right)$$
C
$$\left( { - 3,3} \right)$$
D
$$\left( { - 3,\infty } \right)$$

Explanation

Let $$\alpha $$ and $$\beta $$ are roots of the equation $${x^2} + ax + 1 = 0$$

So, $$\alpha + \beta = - a$$ and $$\alpha \beta = 1$$

given $$\left| {\alpha - \beta } \right| < \sqrt 5 $$

$$ \Rightarrow \sqrt {{{\left( {\alpha - \beta } \right)}^2} - 4\alpha \beta } < \sqrt 5 $$

(as $${\left( {\alpha - \beta } \right)^2} = {\left( {\alpha + \beta } \right)^2} - 4\alpha \beta $$ )

$$ \Rightarrow \sqrt {{a^2} - 4} < \sqrt 5 $$

$$ \Rightarrow {a^2} - 4 < 5$$

$$ \Rightarrow {a^2} - 9 < 0 \Rightarrow {a^2} < 9$$

$$ \Rightarrow - 3 < a < 3$$

$$ \Rightarrow a \in \left( { - 3,3} \right)$$

AIEEE 2006

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
If $$x$$ is real, the maximum value of $${{3{x^2} + 9x + 17} \over {3{x^2} + 9x + 7}}$$ is
A
$${1 \over 4}$$
B
$$41$$
C
$$1$$
D
$${17 \over 7}$$

Explanation

$$y = {{3{x^2} + 9x + 17} \over {3{x^2} + 9x + 7}}$$

$$3{x^2}\left( {y - 1} \right) + 9x\left( {y - 1} \right) + 7y - 17 = 0$$

$$D \ge 0$$ as $$x$$ is real

$$81{\left( {y - 1} \right)^2} - 4 \times 3\left( {y - 1} \right)\left( {7y - 17} \right) \ge 0$$

$$ \Rightarrow \left( {y - 1} \right)\left( {y - 41} \right) \le 0$$

$$ \Rightarrow 1 \le y \le 41$$

$$\therefore$$ Max value of $$y$$ is $$41$$

MCQ (Single Correct Answer)
All the values of $$m$$ for which both roots of the equation $${x^2} - 2mx + {m^2} - 1 = 0$$ are greater than $$ - 2$$ but less then 4, lie in the interval
A
$$ - 2 < m < 0$$
B
$$m > 3$$
C
$$ - 1 < m < 3$$
D
$$1 < m < 4$$

Explanation

Equation $${x^2} - 2mx + {m^2} - 1 = 0$$

$${\left( {x - m} \right)^2} - 1 = 0$$

or $$\left( {x - m + 1} \right)\left( {x - m - 1} \right) = 0$$

$$x = m - 1,m + 1$$

$$m - 1 > - 2$$ and $$m + 1 < 4$$

$$ \Rightarrow m > - 1$$ and $$m<3$$

or $$\,\,\, - 1 < m < 3$$
