Time allowed : 3 hours
Maximum Marks: 100

General Instructions :

  1. All questions are compulsory.
  2. The question paper consists of 29 questions divided into four sections A, B, C and D. Section A comprises of 4 questions of one mark each, Section B comprises of 8 questions of two marks each, Section C comprises of 11 questions of four marks each and Section D comprises of 6 questions of six marks each.
  3. All questions in Section A are to be answered in one word, one sentence or as per the exact requirement of the question.
  4. There is no overall choice. However, internal choice has been provided in 3 questions of four marks each and 3 questions of six marks each. You have to attempt only one of the alternatives in all such questions.
  5. Use of calculators is not permitted. You may ask for logarithmic tables if required.


Question numbers 1 to 4 carry 1 mark each.

  1. Find the value of .
  2. If the matrix is skew-symmetric, find the values of ‘a’ and ‘b’.
  3. Find the magnitude of each of the two vectors  and , having the same magnitude such that the angle between them is 60° and their scalar product is.
  4. If a * b denotes the larger of ‘a’ and ‘b’ and if a b = (a * b) + 3, then write the value of (5) (10), where * and are binary operations.


Question numbers 5 to 12 carry 2 marks each.

  1. Prove that: ,
  2. Given , compute A-1 and show that 2A-1 = 9I – A.
  3. Differentiate with respect to x.
  4. The total cost C(x) associated with the production of x units of an item is given by C(x) = 0·005x3 – 0·02x2 + 30x + 5000. Find the marginal cost when 3 units are produced, where by marginal cost we mean the instantaneous rate of change of total cost at any level of output.
  5. Evaluate :
  6. Find the differential equation representing the family of curves y = a ebx+5, where a and b are arbitrary constants.
  7. If is the angle between two vectors  and  find sin.
  8. A black and a red die are rolled together. Find the conditional probability of obtaining the sum 8, given that the red die resulted in a number less than 4.


Question numbers 13 to 23 carry 4 marks each.

  1. Using properties of determinants, prove that
    = 9 (3xyz + xy + yz + zx)
  2. If (x2 + y2)2 = xy, find .

    If and , find when .

  3. If y = sin (sin x), prove that .
  4. Find the equations of the tangent and the normal, to the curve 16x2 + 9y2 = 145 at the point (x1, y1), where x1 = 2 and y1 > 0.

    Find the intervals in which the function f(x) =  – x3 – 5x2 + 24x + 12 is (a) strictly increasing, (b) strictly decreasing.

  5. An open tank with a square base and vertical sides is to be constructed from a metal sheet so as to hold a given quantity of water. Show that the cost of material will be least when depth of the tank is half of its width. If the cost is to be borne by nearby settled lower-income families, for whom water will be provided, what kind of value is hidden in this question?
  6. Find :
  7. Find the particular solution of the differential equation ex tan y dx + (2 – ex) sec2y dy = 0, give that when x = 0.

    Find the particular solution of the differential equation tanx = sinx, given that y = 0 when.
