**Que-1: Which of the following is not a linear inequation?**

(a) 3x-8 > 5+2x (b) (5x/2)-3 ≤ (9x/4)+12 (c) 4x-7/3 ≥ 13x+8 (d) 6x+13 < 4/x – 3

**Solution- **(d) 6x+13 < 4/x – 3

**Reason: **as x is in denominator

**Solution- **(c) (7x/3)-9 ≤ 5+(4x/7)

**Reason: **Others are either in squire form or x is in denominator

**Que-3: Which of the following is not a general form of linear inequation?**

(a) ax+b > c (b) (a/x)+b ≥ c (c) ax+b ≤ c (d) ax²+b < c

**Solution- **(d) ax²+b < c

**Que-5: ****Which of the following is not reducible to a linear inequation?**

(a) 3-(7/x) < 5 (b) 8+(3/x) ≥ (5/x)-4 (c) (6/x)-8 > (4/x)+3x (d) 3/(x-1)-7 < 9

**Solution- **(c) (6/x)-8 > (4/x)+3x

**Reason: **on solving (c) it becomes quadratic form

**Que-6: Which of the following is not true for the linear inequations?**

(a) Adding the same number to each side of an inequation does not change the inequality.

(b) Multiplying each side of an inequation by the same positive number reverses the inequality.

(c) Multiplying each side of an inequation by the same negative number reverses the inequality.

(d) Dividing each side of an inequation by the same positive number does not change the inequality.

**Solution-** not true option is (b) Multiplying each side of an inequation by the same positive number reverses the inequality.

**Reason: **Multiplying / dividing each side of an inequation by the same positive number No change in the inequality sign. Only change if Mul / Div. by negative number

**Que-7: Which of the following is not true?**

(a) p>q ⇔ q>p (b) p<q ⇔ q>p (c) p≥q ⇔ q≤p (d) p≤q ⇔ q≥p

**Solution- **(a) p>q ⇔ q>p

**Reason: **in LHS P is greater while in RHS P is smaller Hence it is not possible

**Que-8: Which of the following is the solution set of x≤7, when the replacement set is the set of natural numbers?**

(a) {1,2,3,4,5,6,7} (b) {0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7} (c) {1,2,3,4,5,6} (d) {0,1,2,3,4,5,6}

**Solution- **(a) {1,2,3,4,5,6,7}

**(a) {0} (b) {…….,-3,-2,-1} (c) {…….,-3,-2,-1,0,} (d) Null set**

**Solution- **(d) Null set

**Reason: **as x is whole number so the least value is 0 and there is no number less than 0 in whole number

**Solution- **(b) If p≥q, then -pr ≥-qr

**Reason: **on multiplying both side negative number sign must be reverse here – r is multiplying both side without sign change hence it is not true

**(a) If p≥q, then (-p/r) ≤ (-q/r) (b) If p≤q, then pr ≥ qr (c) If p>q, then -pr > -qr (d) If p<q, then p-r < q-r **

**Solution- **(a) If p≥q, then (-p/r) ≤ (-q/r)
