#### Question No 18

What is the unit digit in(795 - 358)?

Solution!
Unit digit in 795 = Unit digit in [(74)23 x 73]
= Unit digit in [(Unit digit in(2401))23 x (343)]
= Unit digit in (123 x 343)
= Unit digit in (343)
= 3
Unit digit in 358 = Unit digit in [(34)14 x 32]
= Unit digit in [Unit digit in (81)14 x 32]
= Unit digit in [(1)14 x 32]
= Unit digit in (1 x 9)
= Unit digit in (9)
= 9
Unit digit in (795 - 358) = Unit digit in (343 - 9) = Unit digit in (334) = 4.
So, Option B is the answer.

#### Question No 22

If a boat travels with speed 10 kilometre per hour in still water and speed of stream is 5 kilometre per hour what would be the time taken by boat to go 60 km downstream?

Solution!
Thus, downstream speed=(x+y)km/he=10+5=15 km/hr
We have,
Time=distance/speed
Time taken by a boat to travel 60 km downstream will be equal to the ratio of distancees travel to downstream speed.
Time taken by a boat= 60/15=4 hr
