[

**Hint**: For a rational number in the form p/q, such that the prime factors of q are

__not__of the form 2

^{n}5

^{m}, where n and m are non negative integers. Then the rational number has a decimal expansion which is non terminating repeating (recurring).]

**Hint**: Rational form of number p/q, where q = 2

^{3}5

^{2}]

3: (b) 6

4: (c) 1

5: (d) 840 [

**Hint**: LCM × HCF = Product of two numbers]

6: (b) 4 [

**Hint**: 5005 = 5×7×11×13]

7: (d) 2 or 5

8: (d) pq

9: (b) Non-terminating, repeating

10: (c) 0 ≤ r < b

11:(d) 5 + √9 [

**Hint**: √9 = 3, 5 + √9 = 8, a rational number]

12: (b) 21/(2

^{3}5

^{6}) [Hint: for rational number x = p/q, if factors are in the form of 2

^{n}5
