Yes and if the paper is like that we get more scared and I realised I could have got 5-6 marks more had I been not depressed after looking at the paper. I lost all my confidence after looking at the paper.

@Svatejas Shivakumar@Sharky Kesa Can either of you help me verify the phrasing of Q4? Is it "exactly one common language" or "at least one common language"?

It makes a huge difference in appoaching the problem.

Is the following solution correct for P2?

WLOG \(a>b>c\) Multiplying both sides by \((a-b)(b-c)(c-a)\), it suffices to prove \(\sum a^3(b-c) \ge 3(a-b)(b-c)(c-a)\).

Expanding both sides and simplifying , this reduces to prove \(\sum (a^3b+3a^2b) \ge \sum( ab^3+3ab^2)\). Using \(abc=1\) this simplifies to show
\[\sum \frac{a^2+3a}{c} \ge \sum \frac{a^2+3a}{b}\]

But this is just rearrangement on \[a^3+3a>b^3+3b>c^3+3c\] and \[1/a < 1/b < 1/c\]

For q2 since a,b,c are distinct WLOG a>b>c.Take a=c+y,b=c+x,and replace a,b with the above values in lhs and on solving you get finally lhs as 3c+x+y which is nothing but a+b+c,now apply am-gm,to prove it.

Apply am -gm for these
a^3/3(a-b)(a-c)+(a-b)/3^(5/2)+(a-c)/3^(5/2)
Which is>=a/3
Now write same expressions for b and c and add all three
We get in rhs-
a+b+c/3>=1(am-gm)
Hence proved :)
