Common terms are 21, 41, 61, etc., d = 20
∴ Sn = 100

18. (D) They can meet when A comes between 6 : 00 = 6 : 40.
and so B can join him between 6 : 20 = 7 : 00
Similarly, the process can be reversed

20. (B) We have 5 stations + (T + H) = 7 stations
Out of the 7 stations, we have to print tickets

25. (A) Draw DX. As can be seen easily,
AX = DX (Isosceles∆ ).
∴ AX = 2

equally free to win the game
38. (C) C = Q2 � 16Q + 200.
Put Q = 100 �2P
C = 4P2 � 368P + 8600

2 = a2
i.e. 22 = a2 or a2 = 4
Now, a2
2 = a3
i.e. 42 = a3 or a3 = 16, etc
Thus, a1 = 2, a2 = 4, a3 = 16, etc
