1. Answer: (c)  

Explanation: Let position vector of P and Q are Day

P = 6\(6\hat i+3\hat j-2\hat k\) and OQ = \(3\hat i+\hat j-4\hat k\)

Now, by section formula

\(OR=[\frac{2\times OQ-1\times OP}{2-1}]\)

\(=(\frac{2(3\hat i+\hat j-4\hat k)-(6\hat i+3\hat j-2\hat k)}{1})\)

\(=\{\frac{6\hat i+2\hat j-8\hat k-6\hat i-3\hat j+2\hat k}{1}\}\)

\(=(-\hat j-6\hat k)\)

2. Answer: (b)  \(5\sqrt{26}\)

Explanation: The given complex quantity is (2−3i)(−1+7i). Let z1 =2 − 3i and z2 =−1 + 7i

Therefore, \(|z_1|,=\sqrt{2^2+(-3)^2}\)





Thus, required modulus = \(|z_1z_2|\)



3. Answer: (a) 10

Explanation: 5i + j - 3k.(3i - 4j + 7k)

= 15 - 4 - 21 

= 15 - 25

 = -10

4. Answer: (a) 3

Explanation: Given, (a×b)2+(a⋅b)2 =144




⇒16b=144 (∵|a|=4)

⇒b= 9


or |b| =3

5. Answer: (c) B x C

Explanation: A.B = 0


A.C = 0


A is perpendicular to both B and C and BxxC is also perpendicular to both B and C. Therefore, A is parallel to B x C.

6. Answer: (a) orthogonal

Explanation: Since i,j, k represent unit vector in the direction of X,Y and Z axis respectively.
Therefore, they are orthogonal.

7. Answer: (a) 

Explanation: \(\vec a= 2\hat i-\hat j\) , \(\vec b=\hat i-2\hat j+\hat k\) , \(\vec a.\vec b=5,|\vec b|=\sqrt{6}\)

\(=\frac{\vec a.\vec b}{|\vec b|^2}\vec b\)

\(=\frac{5}{6}(\hat i-2\hat j+\hat k)\)

8. Answer: (b) 4/3

Explanation: AB = \((4-3)\hat i(6-4)\hat j+(3-5)\hat k\)

 \(=\hat i+2\hat j-2\hat k\) and PQ = \((1+1)\hat i+(0-2)\hat j+(5-4)\hat k\)

\(=2\hat i-2\hat j+\hat k\)

PQ = \(|\frac{AB.PQ}{|AB||PQ|}|\)


= 4/3

9. Answer: (a) 45° 

Explanation:  A.B = A× B

\(|A.B|=|A\times B|\)

\(|A||B| cos\theta=|A||B|sin\theta\)

sinθ = cosθ

tan θ = 1

θ =  45° 

10. Answer: (a) 12

Explanation: Vectors a and b are collinear if

2/4 = 5/m = 1/n

= 5/m= 1/n=1/2

m = 10 and n = 2

m +n =10+2

= 12

11. Answer: (a) The sum of vectors remains same irrespective of their order or grouping in which they are arranged.

Explanation: Associative Property of Vector addition - For any three vectors \(\vec a,\vec b\) and \(\vec c=(\vec a+\vec b)+\vec c\) \(=\vec a+(\vec b+\vec c)\)

12. Answer: (a) 3

Explanation: If all three point lies on a line then only condition will hold. So, line passing though (2,6) and (1,2) will be

\((y-2)=(x-1) (\frac{6-2}{2-1})\)

y = 4x − 2

So, 10 = 4p−2

p = 3

13. Answer: (d) PA + PB = 2PC

Explanation: Let P be the origin outside of triangle and C is mid-point of triangle, then


2PC =  PA + PB

14. Answer: (b) \(5\sqrt2\)

Explanation: PQ = \(\sqrt{(3-0)^2+(4-0)^2+(5-0)^2}\)

\(=\sqrt{9+ 16+25}\)


=  \(5\sqrt{2}\)

Distance of the point (3, 4, 5) from the origin (0, 0, 0) is \(5\sqrt{2}\)

15. Answer: (c) \(-5\hat i+2\hat j+4\hat k\)

Explanation: Required vector = \({\vec{|AB}|}=( -3-2)\hat i+(7-5)\hat j+(4-0)\hat k\)

\(-5\hat i+2\hat j+4\hat k\)

16. Answer: (c) [0,12]

Explanation: −3 ≤ λ ≤2 ⇒ |λ| ≤ 3

Now, \(|\lambda||\vec a|\leq3|\vec a|\)

\(|\lambda \vec a|\leq 12\)

∴  Range is [0,12]

17. Answer: (c) 7

Explanation: Magnitude of the vector, V;

|V| = \(\sqrt{6^2+2^2+3^2}\)



 = 7

18. Answer: (a) \(\sqrt{50}\)

Explanation:  Magnitude of the vector, V;

|V| = \(\sqrt{4^2+3^2+5^2}\)​​​​​​​



19. Answer: (b) initial point, terminal point

Explanation: The point A from where the vector \(\vec{AB}\) starts is called its initial point, and the point B where it ends is called its terminal point.

20. Answer: (a) Yes

Explanation: Two vectors can have the same magnitude. Magnitude of vector i – 2j + k is equal to magnitude of vector 2i + j – k.
