As seba mentioned, i thnk it is safe to assume the 10 numbers are distinct..Also if u look at it the other way, in the list the odd nos are tabulated just once.. I hope what i have done is right

one q/s which i am nt able to solve.....

We are selecting a group of 10 numbers out a list of 100 odd numbers. The sum is called A. How many different values of A are possible....

Reminder I dont have the answer.. Just saw this q/s in some QA Notes.... Please tell if anyone knows the method( i know here i will find the answer)

consider the first 100 odd numbers: 1,3,5....199
The sum of first 10 odd numbers( i.e 1+3+5....19) = 10 + 45x2 = 100 ( min value)
The sum of last 10 odd nos ( i.e 181 + 183...199) = 10 + 945x2 = 1900( max value)
now any other value of the sum will lie betwn 100 and 1900 at a difference of 2.
so total values = (1900-100)/2 + 1
900 + 1 = 901.

@emanresu
the answer to ur question is "a"
All the roots range from 1 to 2 as given in the q.
so if a= -3.3, the sum of the roots is 3..now the only way to check the combination of all values of a and c is by using maxima and minima of equations...all the options satisfy the maxima condition( i.e if the sum of all roots =3.3 then product cannot exceed 1.331...check for other options)
now if u check for the minima in option 1. the minimum value will be achieved when the roots are 1.3, 1 ,1 ...minima = 1.3. Therefore option 1...Pls confirm the ans tho
