    Explanation
    The H.C.F. (Highest Common Factor) is the largest number that divides both 8 and 12 without leaving a remainder. To find the H.C.F., we can list the factors of both numbers and find the largest common factor. The factors of 8 are 1, 2, 4, and 8, while the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12. The largest common factor is 4, which is the H.C.F.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

                                  Round off 394.672 to 2 significant figure 

    • A.

    • C.

      390

    • D.

      393

    Correct Answer
    C. 390
    Explanation
    394.672 rounded to 2 significant figures would be 390. This is because the first significant figure is 3, and the second significant figure is 9. Since the digit following the second significant figure (4) is less than 5, the second significant figure remains unchanged. Therefore, the correct answer is 390.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

                       The prime factors of 18 

    • A.

      2, 3 and 6

    • D.

      2 and 3

    Correct Answer
    D. 2 and 3
    Explanation
    The prime factors of a number are the prime numbers that can be multiplied together to get the original number. In this case, the prime factors of 18 are 2 and 3 because 2 multiplied by 3 equals 6, and 6 multiplied by 3 equals 18.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    Change 12835 to the nearest thousand

    • A.

      12,000

    • B.

      13,000

    • C.

      12800

    • D.

      12840

    Correct Answer
    B. 13,000
    Explanation
    To round 12835 to the nearest thousand, we look at the hundreds digit. Since it is 8, which is greater than or equal to 5, we round up to the next thousand. Therefore, the nearest thousand to 12835 is 13000.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

                              Round up 1.865 to the nearest whole number 

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      -2

    • C.

      2

    • D.

      4

    Correct Answer
    C. 2
    Explanation
    To round up 1.865 to the nearest whole number, we need to look at the decimal part of the number. Since the decimal part is greater than or equal to 0.5, we round up the whole number to the next higher integer. In this case, the decimal part is 0.865, which is greater than 0.5. Therefore, we round up 1.865 to the nearest whole number, which is 2.

    Rate this question:

      70/1000

    Correct Answer
    B. 7/10
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 7/10 because to convert a percentage to a fraction, you divide the percentage by 100. In this case, dividing 70 by 100 gives us 7/10.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    Binary Numeral consists 0 and 1.

    • A.
