Answer to question 3.\[a^{2}-b^{2}=c(b-a)\]
This implies \[a+b+c=0 ...or... a=b\]
Case 1\[a+b+c=0\]
Solutions are \[(a,b,c)=(2,0,-2),(-2,0,2),(0,2,-2),(0,-2,2),(2,2,0),(2,-2,0),(-2,2,0),(-2,-2,0).\]
Case 2\[a=b \]
Therefore \[(a,b,c)=(2,2,0),(-2,-2,0).\].

How many did you solve? Do you have any idea what is the cut-off and when the results will be declared?

In 6th one the difference between two consecutive squares must be greater than 125. Then you can find step of sqrt m becomes step of sqrt of m + 125 which the smaller square in which m, m+125 lies. I gave a hint.

For 3rd break into cases like @Shivam Jadhav did. But he forgot some cases, the two cases gets 8 and 6 subcases more for a+b+c=0 and a=b respectively .

In Q 6, according to me, total no. of values of m are 8.
63^2 to 70^2. Verified.
In Q3, even i have written permutations of (2,-2,0), total 6. But it's wrong.
Someone pls do Q1 and 5. I wasted a lot of time on 1, have done something but couldn't conclude my answer. Pls do those 2 questions.

There is a mistake. If the second object is two places away from the first object, you count the restricted object twice. Sorry. Good luck for getting selected.

Also I don't think you can multiply 40 and 36 and so on because there will be several cases in which you choose the Same object. I just realized that repetitions are not allowed as they are placed around a circle. Hard luck.

Count the number of integers greater than a square above \(63^2\) and which is strictly lesser than the next square by 125...
