Question 17:

If the coefficients of in are equal, then is






B is the correct choice.

in expansion of ,



Therefore, (since it is given that coefficient of coefficient )

Question 18:

If then equals






A is the correct choice. Putting and in

We get

and (2)

Adding (1) and (2) , we get


Question 19:

The coefficient of and ( and are positive integers) in the expansion of are

(A) Equal

(B) Equal with opposite signs

(C) Reciprocal of each other

(D) None of these


A is the correct choice. Coefficient of and in the expansion of are and


Hence (a) is the correct answer.

Question 20:

The number of terms in the expansion of , where is






A is the correct choice. We have

Further, expanding each term of R. H. S. , we note that

First term consist of term.

Second term on simplification gives terms.

Third term on expansion gives terms.

Similarly, fourth term on expansion gives 4 terms and so on.

The total number of terms
