### Solution:

(1)
Sol : Option (c)
8*(12345) - 88 = 98672

(2)
Sol: Option (b)
9(1234) = 11106
4(4321) = 17284
=1.7284
=11106+1.7284=11107.7284

(3)

Sol: Option (a)
(a3 + b3)=(a+b) (a2-ab+b2)
a = 2.3, b = 3.3;
(a)3 = 12.167, (b)3 = 35.937 (a3+b3)=48.104

(4)
Sol: option (b)
(a5-b5)=(a-b) [a4+a3b+a2b2+ab3+b4] = ?
a = 3, b = 2; (3)5=243, (2)5 =32;
(a5-b5) = 243-32= 211

(5)
Sol: Option (b)
(a+b)2 + (a-b)2=2((a)2+(b)2) Hence Answer is 2

(6)
Sol: Option (a)
1+0.33+0.0370 ... hence (a) is the answer no further addition is required.

(7)
Sol: option (e)
Using VODMAS method
Step 1. [ 2+ 2/4 ] = 5/2.
Step 2. ( 2 + 2 ÷5/2) = 2÷ 2✘2/5 =14/5
Step 3. [2+2÷14/5]=2+2*5/14=19/7
Step 4. L.H.S = 2÷19/7=14/19 = x/19 Hence x=19

(8)

Sol: Option (c)
= -4 + 0.45 + 2 + <sup>927-9</sup>/<sub>990</sub> +6/9
= -4 + 0.45 + 2 + <sup>918</sup>/990 +3/2
= (- 4 + 2) + (0.45+1.5) + (<sup>51</sup>/55)
= -2 + 1.95 + 0.92  = 0.87

(9)
Sol: Option (d)
sum= 2 + 4 + 6 + ...+74 a=2 , d=(4-2)=2,l=74 n=37; sum= n/2 (a+l) 37/2✘(2+74)=(37✘38) =37✘(40-2) =(37✘40)-(37✘2) =(1480-74)=1406
