b) What do you mean by the left hand limit and right hand limit of a function? What is the condition for the limit of a function to exist at a point?                                                                                             [2]


Group “B”


  1. a) In a group of students, 30 read mathematics, 24 read Economics, 22 read statistics, 14 read mathematics only, 8 read Economics only, 6 read mathematics and statistics only, 2 read mathematics and Economics only and 8 read none of these subjects.


i)         How many students are there in the group?

ii)       How many read all the three subjects?                             [4]


b) Prove that a quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 can not have more than two roots.


  1. a) If a, b, c are rational and a + b + c = 0, show that the roots of        (b + c – a) x2 + (c + a – b) x + (a + b – c) = 0 are rational.
