{x: x is an integer neither positive nor negative} is ________ a) Empty set b) Non-empty set c) Finite set d) Non- empty and Finite set

Explanation: Set = {0} non-empty and finite set.

2 - Question

{x: x is a real number between 1 and 2} is an ________
a) Infinite set
b) Finite set
c) Empty set
d) None of the mentioned

Explanation: It is an infinite set as there are infinitely many real number between any two different real numbers.

3 - Question

Write set {1, 5, 15, 25,…} in set-builder form.
a) {x: either x=1 or x=5n, where n is a real number}
b) {x: either x=1 or x=5n, where n is a integer}
c) {x: either x=1 or x=5n, where n is an odd natural number}
d) {x: x=5n, where n is a natural number}

Explanation: Set should include 1 or an odd multiple of 5.

4 - Question

. Express {x: x= n/ (n+1), n is a natural number less than 7} in roster form.
a) {1⁄2, 2⁄3, 4⁄5, 6⁄7}
b) {1⁄2, 2⁄3, 3⁄4, 4⁄5, 5⁄6, 6⁄7, 7⁄8}
c) {1⁄2, 2⁄3, 3⁄4, 4⁄5, 5⁄6, 6⁄7}
d) Infinite set
