Question 4:

Let x be the least number which when divided by 12,15,18,20,27 and 30, the remainder in each

case is 1 and x is a multiple of 47. The sum of the digits of x is:

Options:

a. 13

b. 11

c. 9

d. 10

Ans:- d) 10

LCM of 12,15,18,20,27, 30 is 540

Number should be divisible by 47 if we multiply k by 540 and add 1 then the number is divisible

by 47

540k + 1/ 47

Put value of k as 1,2

For k=2

540 * 2 +1 = 1081 which is divisible by 47

1081/47=23

So the digit is 1081

now able to predict and project movements in Indian ocean through real-time seismic
monitoring systems. A community performance-based programme known as Tsunami Ready
has also been started by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of
UNESCO to promote tsunami preparedness by activity involving the public, community
leaders and national and local emergency management agencies, India is the first country to
establish an early warning system for tsunami detection, while Odisha is the first state in the
country to get Tsunami Ready recognition.

Question 2:
At a fun fair, a street vendor is selling different colours of balloons. He sells N number of
different colours of balloons (B[]). The task is to find the colour (odd) of the balloon which is
present odd number of times in the bunch of balloons.
Note:
If there is more than one colour which is odd in number, then the first colour in the array which is
present odd number of times is displayed. The colours of the balloons can all be either upper
case or lower case in the array. If all the inputs are even in number, display the message “All are
even”.
Example 1:
7 -> Value of N
[r,g,b,b,g,y,y] -> B[] Elements B to B[N-1], where input each element is sepārated by ṉew
line.
Output :
