Mathematics is an important subject in JEE ADVANCED and other engineering exams. In any engineering enterance exam, Mathematics carries weightage of 33% of questions. In mathematics a set is a collection of distinct elements. The elements that make up a set can be letters, numbers, points in space, lines, other geometrical shapes, variables, or even other sets. Two sets are equal if and only if they have precisely the same elements. With focused practice good marks can be
fetched from this section. These questions are very important in
achieving your success in JEE and Other Engineering Exams.

**Q6.**In a set of teachers of a school, two teachers are said to be related if they “teach the same subject”, then the relation is

**Q7.**An investigator interviewed 100 students to determine the performance of three drinks milk, coffee and tea. The investigator reported that 10 students take all three drinks milk, coffee and tea; 20 students take milk and coffee, 30 students take coffee and tea, 25 students take mile and tea, 12 students take milk only, 5 students take coffee only and 8 students take tea only. Then, the number of students who did not take any of the three drinks, is

**Q9.**The number of elements in the set {(a,b):2a

^{2}+3b

^{2}=35,a,b∈Z}, where Z is the set of all integers, is
