1. Alok and Bhanu play the following min-max game. Given the expression N = 19 + X * (Y - Z), where X, Y and Z are variables representing single digits (0 to 9), Alok would like to maximize N while Bhanu would like to minimize it. Towards this end, Alok chooses a single digit number and Bhanu substitutes this for a variable of her choice (X, Y or Z). Alok then chooses the next value and Bhanu, the variable to substitute the value. Finally Alok proposes the value for the remaining variable.

7. Alice and Bob play the following coins-on-a-stack game. 100 coins are stacked one above the other. One of them is a special (gold) coin and the rest are ordinary coins. The goal is to bring the gold coin to the top by repeatedly moving the topmost coin to another position in the stack. Alice starts and the players take turns. A turn consists of moving the coin on the top to a position i below the top coin (for some i between 0 and 100). We will call this an i-move (thus a 0-move implies doing nothing). The proviso is that an i-move cannot be repeated; for example once a player makes a 2-move, on subsequent turns neither player can make a 2- move. If the gold coin happens to be on top when it's a player's turn then the player wins the game. Initially, the gold coin is the third coin from the top. Then

O In order to win, Alice's first move can be a 0-move or a 1-move.

O In order to win, Alice's first move should be a 1-move.

O In order to win, Alice's first move should be a 0-move.

O Alice has no winning strategy.

9. Achilles was the son of the nymph Thetis and Peleus, the king of the Myrmidons. Zeus and Poseidon had been rivals for the hand of Thetis until Prometheus, the fire-bringer, warned Zeus of a prophecy that Thetis would bear a son greater than his father. For this reason, the two gods withdrew their pursuit, and had her wed Peleus. The following statement is another interesting prophecy about the ages of two childen of Zeus that would hold true at some time during the lifetime of the children. 4 years ago, Athena's age was twice Helen's age. 4 years hence, Athena's age will be 4/3 times the age of Helen. Find Athena's present age in binary numbers during the time that the statement holds true.

In the experiment, a person makes a journey into space at nearly the speed of light and comes back to earth. He finds that he has aged five times less than his twin who stayed back on earth for 40 years. This is popularly known as the Twin Paradox. Now, consider the case of Hansel and Gretel, who are not twins. 9 years ago, Hansel was twice as old as Gretel. If they journey into space, an atomic clock assists in logging the start time of their journey accurately. If they do not journey into space, 9 years hence, Hansel's age will be 413 times the age of Greters. Find Hansel's age today in binary numbers.

23. A result of global warming is that the ice of some glaciers is melting. 12 years after the ice disappears, tiny plants, called lichens, start to grow on the rocks. Each lichen grows approximately in the shape of a circle. The relationship between the diameter of this circle and the age of the lichen can be approximated with the formula: d =5* (t -12) for t >12, where d represents the diameter of the lichen in millimeters, and t represents the number of years after the ice has disappeared. Using the above formula, calculate the diameter of the lichen, 49 years after the ice has disappeared.

The results show a correlation between a decrease of brain tissues with an increase in abnormal protein deposits in the brain. Therefore one hypothesis for the cause of Alzheimers is due to the abnormal protein deposits. Which of the following weakens the conclusion above?

O Autopsies of Alzheimer patients have shown that deterioration of intellectual faculties is often associated with emotional disturbance and personality changes.

Given the expression N = 19 + X * (Y - Z), where X, Y and Z are variables representing single digits (0 to 9), Alok would like to maximize N while Bhanu would like to minimize it. Towards this end, Alok chooses a single digit number and Bhanu substitutes this for a variable of her choice (X, Y or Z). Alok then chooses the next value and Bhanu, the variable to substitute the value. Finally Alok proposes the value for the remaining variable.

The goal is to bring the gold coin to the top by repeatedly moving the topmost coin to another position in the stack. Alice starts and the players take turns. A turn consists of moving the coin on the top to a position i below the top coin (for some i between 0 and 100). We will call this an i-move (thus a 0-move implies doing nothing). The proviso is that an i-move cannot be repeated; for example once a player makes a 2-move, on subsequent turns neither player can make a 2- move. If the gold coin happens to be on top when it's a player's turn then the player wins the game. Initially, the gold coin is the third coin from the top. ThenO In order to win, Alice's first move can be a 0-move or a 1-move.
