Hey.. can someone plz help me with this problem? Thanks a lot!

If n denotes a number to the left of 0 on the number line such that the square of n is less than 1/100, then the reciprocal of n must be
(1) less than -10
(2) between -1 and -1/10
(3) between -1/10 and 0
(4) between 0 and 1/10
(5) greater than 10

I think the answer is A agree with ashishjha's explanation
arch can u post the original ans.

My Take: B
Here goes my solution!

Now the number of ways 3 positions can be taken by 9 people is 9 * 8 * 7

So, to find the peobability of atleast two positions going to the Triplets we need to find the probapility as:

Required Probability = Probability of 2 position going to triplets + Probability of all three position going to triplets

ie : P = P(2) + P(3)

Now P(2) = Triplets(1st & Second pos) + Triplets(Second & 3rd pos) + Triplets(1st & 3rd pos)

Therefire, P(2) =

=> p(2) = 108/(9 * 8 * 7)

Again, P(3) = (3 * 2 * 1) / (9 * 8 * 7)

So, P = 114/(9 * 8 * 7)
=> P = 19/84

Alternatively,

You can also get the same result by suptracting Probability of none of them getting Medal and probability of only one of them getting medal from 1

i.e: P = 1 -

I have a doubt how come you've multiplied 3*2*6 to find the P2. should'nt it be 3*2*7.
If you take 3*2*7 the answer would be C 11/42

see

n(AUBUC)= n(A)+n(B)+n(C)-((nA@B)+(nA@BC)+(nC@B))+(nA@B@C) where @ denotes intersection

using this we get the answer of ((nA@B)+(nA@BC)+(nC@B)) as 55 and substracting the 30 (10+10+10) from it as we need to find only the numbers of customers who purchase 2 of the items hence 25%

also the venn diagram gives the same result...

Well even I was getting D as the answer so i think the OA is misprinted.
