Generally one requires to be a master in all but Jack in one. Our daily life directly or indirectly incorporates skills from the field of science and other subjects which may further embed the basic concepts of maths. Check if you fit in the boots of an average mathematician. This is so I can see what level you are in your math skill area. Go ahead. All the best!

### Janie had 24 cookies and wanted to fit all of them into four boxes. What is the correct solution and the correct answer?

• A.

• B.

• C.

24/2= 12 cookies in each box

B. 24/4=6 cookies in each box
Explanation
The correct solution is to divide the total number of cookies, 24, by the number of boxes, 4, which gives 6 cookies in each box. This is represented by the equation 24/4=6. Therefore, the correct answer is 6 cookies in each box.

### How do you define a circle?

• A.

It is a closed curve, which is drawn after taking a particular angle from a fixed point and then joining all the output points.

• B.

It is the locus of all points drawn from a perpendicular distance in a plane.

• C.

It is the locus of all the points drawn in a plane from a fixed point which is called as its centre.

• D.

None of the above

C. It is the locus of all the points drawn in a plane from a fixed point which is called as its centre.
Explanation
A circle is defined as the locus of all the points drawn in a plane from a fixed point which is called its center. This means that every point on the circle is equidistant from the center. The other options do not accurately define a circle.

### Who discovered the concept of Zero?

• A.

Archimedes

• B.

Aryabhatta

• C.

Plato

• D.

None of the above

B. Aryabhatta
Explanation
Aryabhatta is credited with discovering the concept of zero. He was an ancient Indian mathematician and astronomer who lived in the 5th century. Aryabhatta's work on the number system and his use of zero as a placeholder revolutionized mathematics and laid the foundation for modern arithmetic. His discoveries and contributions to mathematics were highly influential and continue to be used today.

### The reciprocal of the secant value of an angle is equal to its cosecant.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The reciprocal of the secant value of an angle is equal to its cosine, not its cosecant. The secant (sec) of an angle is defined as the reciprocal of the cosine (cos), while the cosecant (csc) of an angle is defined as the reciprocal of the sine (sin).

### What is a null set?

• A.

A set which has zero as its element.

• B.

A set which is null.

• C.

A set which contains only one element.

• D.

None of the above.

B. A set which is null.
Explanation
The correct answer is "A set which is null." A null set, also known as an empty set, is a set that contains no elements. It is represented by the symbol Ø or {} and is different from a set that contains zero as its element. A null set has no elements, while a set that contains zero as its element has one element, which is zero. Therefore, the correct answer is a set which is null.

### What is the value of the sum of squares of sin and cos of an angle?

• A.

1

• B.

2

• C.

0

• D.

-1

A. 1
Explanation
The sum of squares of sin and cos of an angle is always equal to 1. This can be proven using the trigonometric identity: sin^2(angle) + cos^2(angle) = 1. This identity holds true for any angle, making the value of the sum of squares of sin and cos always equal to 1.
