Let x, y and z be distinct integers, that are odd and positive. Which one of the following statements cannot be true?

  1. $xyz^2$ is odd.
  2. $(x − y)^2 z$ is even.
  3. $(x + y − z)^2 (x + y)$ is even.
  4. $(x − y) (y + z) (x + y − z)$ is odd

Best answer

​​​​​​The difference of two odd integers is always an even number.

The multiplication of even integer with any(even/odd) integer is always an even integer.

Hence 4th option is not possible.

Answer the following question based on the information given below. For real numbers x, y, let f(x, y) = Positive square-root of (x + y), if (x + y)$^{0.5}$ is real = (x + y)$^2$, otherwise g(x, y) = (x + y)$^2$, if (x + y)$^{0.5}$ is real = - ... conditions is f(x, y) necessarily greater than g(x, y)? Both x and y are less than -1 Both x and y are positive Both x and y are negative y > x

Answer the following question based on the information given below. For three distinct real numbers x, y and z, let f(x, y, z) = min(max(x, y), max(y, z), max(z, x)) g(x, y, z) = max(min(x, y), min(y, z), min(z, x)) h(x, y, z) = max(max(x, y), max(y, z), max(z, x)) j(x, y, z) = min(min(x, y), min( ... y, z) - j(x, y, z))/(f(x, y, z) - h(x, y, z)) (h(x, y, z) - f(x, y, z))/(n(x, y, z) - g(x, y, z))
