Hi All,
Not sure how to make a new post. So I will put my question right here.

Q: The minimum value of the expression is attained at x=a. If 'x' is always greated than 5, then what is the value of 'a'?

1. 6
2. 5+2^(1/2)
3. 5+1/(3^(1/2))
4. 5+1/(5^(1/2))
5. None of these.

Request you to put the explanation as well.
Thanks is advance for any replies.

It would be really difficult to predict what's going on in the interviewers mind. Anyways this could be a good way to start. Personally, I would like to come up with a good presence of mind. This was fun though. We should look on the positivity we could extract from this post, rather than harsh commenting.
