Answers:
1: (a) 77/210
[Hint: For a rational number in the form p/q, such that the prime factors of q are not of the form 2n5m, where n and m are non negative integers. Then the rational number has a decimal expansion which is non terminating repeating (recurring).]

2:  (c) 3 [Hint: Rational form of number p/q, where q = 2352]

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/(2356) [Hint: for rational number x = p/q, if factors are in the form of 2n5m, where n and m are non negative integers, the rational number has a decimal expansion of terminating type.]

13: (c) Khwarizmi

14: (c) is non-terminating and non-repeating
