**Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs)**

**Question 1:**

When the integers 10, 0, 5, -5,-7 are arranged in descending or ascending order, then find out which of the following integers always remains in the middle of the arrangement.

**(a) ** 0 ** (b)** 5 **(c)** – 7 ** (d)** -5

**Solution:**

(a) To arrange these integers in ascending or descending order, first we locate these points on number line.

As we know, if a point or number lies on the right side to the other number, then the number is greater. Then,

Ascending order -7, – 5,0, 5,10

Middle term = 0

Descending order → 10, 5, 0, – 5, – 7

Middle term = 0

Hence, zero always remains in the middle of the arrangement.

**Question 2:**

By observing the number line, state which of the following statements is not true?

**(a)** B is greater than -10 ** (b)** A is greater than 0 **(c)** B is greater than A ** (d)** 6 is smaller than 0

**Solution:**

**(c)** As we know that, if a point or number lies on the right side to the other number, then the number is greater.

Here, B is greater than -10 but smaller than 0 and A is greater than 0 but smaller than 10. Also, 6 is smaller than A.

**Question 3:**

By observing the above number line, state which of the following statements is true?

**(a)** B is 2 **(b)** A is – 4 ** (c)** S is -13 ** (d)** B is – 4

**Solution:**

**(d)** Since, 8 lies at the left side of 0, so it will be negative and it is at 4th place.

So, 8 =-4

Similarly, A lies at the right side of 0, so it will be positive and it is at 7th place.

So, A = 7. Hence, the value of A – 7 and value of 8 = – 4.

**Question 4:**

Next three consecutive numbers in the pattern 11, 8, 5, 2,______ ,__ ,__ are

(a) 0, – 3, – 6 (b)-1,-5,-8 (c) – 2, — 5, – 8 (d)-1,-4,-7

**Solution:**

**(d)** By observing the series, difference between two consecutive numbers is 3,

**Question 5:**

The next number in the pattern – 62,- 37,- 12 is_________________ .

**(a)** 25 **(b)** 13 ** (c)** 0 ** (d)** -13

**Solution:**

**(b)** By observing the series, difference between two consecutive numbers is 25, i.e.

-37 -(-62) = -37 + 62 =25

– 12 – (- 37) = -12 + 37 =25

So, next number will be

-12 + 25 = 13

**Question 6:**

Which of the following statements is not true? ;

**(a)** When two positive integers are added, we always get a positive integer.

**(b)** When two negative integers are added, we always get a negative integer.

**(c) **When a positive integer and a negative integer are added, we always get a negative integer.

**(d)** Additive inverse of an integer 2 is (-2) and additive inverse of (-2) is 2.

**Solution:**

**(c)**

(a) True, when two positive integers are added, the resultant number is also a positive integer.

(b) True, while adding integers, if both the numbers have same sign, the resultant number also get that sign.

(c) False, while adding the integers of different signs, the resultant number get the sign of greater number.

(d) True, additive inverse of an integer is the same integer value, with opposite sign.

**Question 7:**

On the following number line value, ‘zero’ is shown by the point

**(a)** X ** (b)** Y ** (c)** Z ** (d)** W

**Solution:**

**(c)** All the points are equally spaced.

One division = 5 units

So, X = -15 + 5 = -10

Y=-10+ 5 = – 5

Z=- 5 +5 = 0

Hence, zero is shown by the point Z.

**Solution:**

**(c) ** – 35 x 107 =-35 x (100+7)= (- 35) x 100 + (- 35) x 7 [using distributive property, i.e. a x (b + c) = a x b + a x c]

= (- 35) x 7 + (- 35) x 100 [as addition is commutative, i.e. a + b = b + a)

Also, – 35 x 107 =(- 30 – 5) x 107 [∴ (-30 – 5) = (- 35)]

Hence, – 35 x 107 is not same as -35 x 7 + 100.

**Question 110:**

Science Application An atom consists of charged particles called electrons and protons. Each proton has a charge of +1 and each electron has a charge of -1. Remember number of electrons is equal to number of protons, while answering these questions:

(a) What is the charge on an atom?

(b) What will be the charge on an atom, if it loses an electron?

(c) hat will be the charge on an atom, if it gains an electron?

**Solution:**

(a) Let a be the number of electrons in an atom.

Number of protons in the atom, will also be equal to a. Since, an atom has equal number of protons and electrons.

**∴**Charge on one electron = (-1)

**∴**Total charge in a electrons = a x (-1) = – a

**∴**Charge on one proton = (+1)

**∴**Total charge in a protons = a x (+1) = + a

Hence, total charge on the atom = Charge of electrons + Charge of protons

= – a + a = 0

(b) If an atom loses an electron, it will have (a -1) electrons and a protons.

**∴**Charge in one electron = (-1)

**∵** Charge in (a-1) electrons = (a -1) x (-1) = – (a -1) = (1 – a)

**∴**Charge in one proton = (+1)

**∵** Charge in a protons = (+1) x a = (+a)

Hence, total charge on the atom = Charge of electrons + Charge of protons

= 1 – a + a= + 1

(c) If an atom gains an electron, it will have (a + 1) electrons and a protons

**∴** Charge in one electron = -1

Charge in (a +1) electrons = -1 x (a + 1) = – (a + 1)

**∴**Charge in one proton = (+1)

Charge in a protons = (+1) x a = (+ a)

Hence, total charge on the atom = Charge of electrons + Charge of protons

= a – (a + 1) = (-1)

**Question 111:**

An atom changes to a charged particle called ion, if it loses or gains electrons. The charge on an ion is the charge on electrons plus charge on protons. Now, write the missing information in the table given below:

**Solution:**

(a) For Hydroxide ion,

Proton charge + Electron charge = Ion charge

Electron charge = Ion charge – Proton charge

Electron charge = -1 – 9 = -10

Hence, the electron charge in a Hydroxide ion is -10.

(b) For Sodium ion,

Electron charge = Ion charge – Proton charge = + 1 -11 = -10

Hence, the electron charge in a Sodium ion is -10.

(c) For Aluminium ion,

Ion charge = Proton charge + Electron charge

Ion charge = 13-10 = 3

Hence, the ion charge in an Aluminium ion is 3,

(d) For Oxide ion,

Ion charge = Proton charge + Electron charge

Ion charge = 8 -10 = – 2

Hence, the ion charge in an Oxide ion is -2.
