Answer: (d)

Explanation: D + 5C > 10

Hence, D > 10 - 2C

Multiplying by 5 to both sides of inequality,

5D > 50-10C

Hence, 5D + 10C > 5

Now Q1: 10D + 2C

2. 40 > v < 70, while 26 > a < 86

Quantity 1: v

Quantity 2: a

1. Value of quantity 2 is more than value of quantity 1

2. Value of quantity 1 is more than value of quantity 2

3. Values of both quantity 1 and 2 are equal

4. There is no relation between the 2 quantities

Answer: (d)

Explanation: As quantity 1 can be any number between 40 and 70, and quantity 2 can be any number between 26 and 86, option (d) is the right answer

SAT Practice Questions on Sentence Completion.

3. E = the number of hours in 3 days

Z = the number of seconds in 10 minutes

1. Z is greater than E

2. E is greater than Z

3. There is no relation between E and Z

4. E = Z

Answer: (c)

Explanation: E = 3 x 24 =72

Z = 10 x 60 = 600

Therefore P is not equal to Z.

4. s is a negative integer

2/50 = s/g

Quantity 1: s/g

Quantity 2: 2

1. Quantity 2 is less than quantity 1

2. Quantity 1 is less than quantity 2

3. Quantity 1 is equal to quantity 2

4. No relation

Answer: (d)

Explanation: 2/50 = s/g

½ = u/p

Therefore there is no relation between 1 and 2

5. C + 3Z >10

Quantity 1: 3C + 6Z Quantity 2: 24

1. Quantity 2 is greater than quantity 1

2. Both the quantities are equal

3. Quantity 1 is greater than quantity 2

4. The relationship between the two quantities cannot be determined

Answer: (d)

Explanation: C + 3Z > 10

hence, C > 10 - 3Z

Multiplying by 2 to both sides of inequality,

2C > 20-6Z

hence, 2C + 6Z > 20

Now Q1: 3C + 6Z

Q2: 24

Hence, there is no relation between these two.

Option (d) is the answer

6. F = 2/w + 2/c = 2/6

A = 2/w2 + 2/c2 = 7/9

1. F and A are equal

2. F> A

3. F< A

4. Relation not defined

Answer: (d)

Explanation: N = 2/w2 + 2/c2 = 7/9 = 1/w2 + 1/c2 = 7/18

M = 2/w + 2/c = 2/6 = 1/w + 1/c = 1/6

M2 = 1/w2 + 2/wc + 1/c2 = 1/36

M2 = 1/w2 + 1/c2 =1/36 - 2/wc

Therefore the relation between F and A is not defined.

C = 2/f2 + 2/p2 = 7/9

1. Q and C are equal

2. Q> C

3. Q< C

4. Relation not defined

Answer: (d)

Explanation: N = 2/f2 + 2/p2 = 7/9 = 1/f2 + 1/p2 = 7/18

M = 2/f + 2/p = 2/6 = 1/f + 1/p = 1/6

M2 = 1/f2 + 2/fp + 1/p2 = 1/36

M2 = 1/f2 + 1/p2 =1/36 - 2/fp

Therefore the relation between Q and C is not defined.

Answer: (b)

Explanation: As this is a right angled equilateral triangle, we apply the Pythagoras theorem.

Let GH = a, HI = b and GI = c

According to the Pythagoras theorem, a2 + b2 = c2

As the square of the third side is the sum of the squares of the other two sides, option (b) is the right answer.

W = (4 x 5 x 16)/(32 x 50)1/2

1. Z is greater than W

2. Z is equal to W

3. W is greater than Z

4. No relationship between W and Z

Answer: (d)

Explanation: Z = (2 x 5 x 10)/(1500)1/2 = 100/32 = 2.5

W = (4 x 5 x 16)/(32 x 50)1/2 = 320/32 = 10

Therefore the answer is (d)
